Two Bedrooms in Gravesend
Location: 74th Street and Bay Parkway
Description: Isn’t it strange that every prewar building is described as “charming”? Is this just a quick way for realtors and their ilk to make an apartment seem appealing? Or maybe the realtors represent a symptom in our society for this misplaced nostalgia we have of the “prewar” days. And what exactly are these “prewar” days? With an American conflict taking place roughly every decade, it’s hard to really say there was a “prewar” time, unless you’re referring to pre-Revolution time. And in that case, that’s one pretty damned old building.

Four Bedrooms in Bensonhurst
Location: 203 Avenue P
Description: This apartment is basically an homage to the days of yore. The apartment is huge, according to the realtor, and every blessed item of furniture seems to come from the 80s, including the floral-printed futon.

One Bedroom and a Slightly Ajar Fridge in Mapleton
Location: 64th Street and 24th Avenue
Description: One of the rooms, which one I cannot say, in this apartment is L-shaped. But what would really be great is a J-shaped pool. Short of this modest proposal, there is a bathroom and it has a window. (I know, you were worried for a second there.)

Three Bedrooms in Bensonhurst
Location: 1826 67th Street
Description: While the pictures in this listing give you a good sense of the outside, there is only one picture of the inside. This picture looks more like a sanitized hospital room with white walls and white-tiled floors. According to the realtor, this area is the biggest shopping center. Coming from a real estate agency from Staten Island, that must mean something.
