|35 Sterling - 20% down and, I dunno, $8K a month? Maybe best to break it down to $275 or so a day|
|150 Winthrop - And they throw in the mystery vehicle under the blue tarp - small yacht?|
Oh how I wish we could talk about rezoning. Or talk about something other than Empire Boulevard, which any eyes can see is going through a bit of a building boom of its own - both on and around. It's time for a major Planning Study of this neighborhood. Actually, it's about five years too late. But some, it would appear, are intent on making us wait a bit longer.
You know that bodega at 492 Flatbush? I think it's called "Garden Deli," just south of the subway entrance across from Phat Albert. It's for sale, with rentals above. Tear down? You could actually build up on ALL the buildings along Flatbush.
Oh, and this modest home on Fenimore? Just shy of $1.30 million.
Riding around I can see three new multi-house lots that are for sale. Added to the dozen or so developments that are currently underway...
The thing about rezoning boulevards along transit lines to allow higher density is...well, the alternative is more patchwork insanity like you have in Williamsburg. We need height limits and affordable affordable housing. I'm not backing down. I'll keep pushing for sanity. And anyone who thinks that by obstruction we'll get fewer new residents is not looking at the rest of the borough, or the City for that matter. They'll come. It's just a matter of whether we'll be ready.
