To those of us who follow these kinds of things, the investment of real estate brokers MySpace is a big effing deal in the development of the neighborhood. From their press release for their Grand Opening at 661 Flatbush. I don't know why but they left off the close quote, which somehow seems apropos to me.
MySpace NYC has been handling Lefferts Gardens listings out of its Franklin Avenue office since it was founded in 2008. “A large percentage of our agents have lived in the area for years, and we realized it was finally time to establish an office in the neighborhood,” said Guy Hochman, owner of MySpace NYC.
Lefferts Gardens has a lot going for it: proximity to Prospect Park and the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, streets lined with historic Victorian houses, and new bars and restaurants opening all the time. It’s increasingly becoming a destination for Brooklyn residents looking for reasonable rent in a neighborhood on the rise.
As with all of MySpace NYC offices, the Lefferts Gardens office is designed to fit in with its neighborhood. The agents understand better than anyone both sides of apartment hunt in Lefferts Gardens—they want to provide a service for those seeking to join the neighborhood as well as those looking to relocate within it.
