One of the biggest questions each Fourth of July concerns where the best place might be to see the fireworks. Where are the biggest crowds? How early do I have to arrive to see anything? Is the spot kid friendly? Will there be drinks?
Our open house picks this week are exclusively in Park Slope and Bed Stuy. While one of the Park Slope picks is far grander than the other, both Bed Stuy homes offer a slew of charming original details. All appear to be in move-in condition, but the kitchens and bathrooms in two could use an update.
In a Windsor Terrace co-op named Maurice, this petite two-bedroom on the second floor has enough built-in shelving for a serious collector and a number of original details. The four-story, early 20th century walkup is just across the street from Prospect Park and the four-room apartment has a relatively modest asking price.
Here’s a Park Slope apartment that’s both attractive and offers a good deal of space. It’s on the top floor of a four-story townhouse at 425 3rd Street, three blocks from Prospect Park.
Here’s a spacious brownstone in Park Slope that’s in move-in condition, but could use an update in the kitchens and baths. Owned by the same family for decades, it’s located at 60 Berkeley Place, in the Park Slope Historic District Extension II.
