"This lovely home is close to it all and new establishments are opening daily in hip Lefferts Gardens."I love the nabe for being decidedly un-hip thank you. You want hip, Brooklyn's got hip. But not on Caton.
Over here where I work in Ft. Greene, or perhaps DUMBO, or downtown Brooklyn, over on 4th Avenue or Franklin or Vanderbilt or Williamsburg or Bushwick, such hyperbole could be fairly asserted. The only thing true in this ad is that the apartment is in fact for sale and near Prospect Park. But why stop there? Tell the whole story...
It's near the colorful Caton Market, and the now-vacant historic building HSBC. And an early morning hooch shack where you can get a pint and play lotto before 9am. And the delightful Mango Seed or deliciously utilitarian Dominican joint Melany. As to "new," I believe a new bullet proof liquor store opened on Bedford in the last year. Zen Vegetarian Chinese opened in the last 5 years. And "Pancakes in Hell" bodega (check the signage) at Flatbush and Woodruff opened a couple years ago. And Abdo of ICH went from coffee to computers-only in the last couple months. Oh, yes, the Gyro place on Parkside. And the McDonald's remodeled. That must be what they're referring to.
That's the tooth, Mr. Real Estate Agent. Come visit sometime. We'd love to show you around!
