One Bedroom in Bensonhurst
Price: $1,395
Location: 74th Street and Bay Parkway
Description: This apartment looks like it gets a lot of sunlight and it’s rooms tend to not trigger claustrophobia. Pets are allowed and the apartment is described as being “quiet,” which is good because your dog will really be able to get some mileage out of his midnight barks.
Contact: Frank Desdunes, Oxford Property Group, (347) 683-017

One Bedroom in Bath Beach
Price: $1,150
Location: 56 Bay 43rd Street
Description: While this apartment has a large kitchen, I wouldn’t go so far as the realtor does and say that this place is unbeatable. The realtor also writes that the apartment will be off the market soon, so hurry up already and call.
Contact: Vadim, Rapid Realty, (516) 427-4490

Two Bedrooms near 86th Street 
Price: $1,500
Location: Bay 35th Street, off of 86th Street
Description: The realtor writes that this apartment has easy access to the train. Which is an understatement because if you wanted, you could probably use a wooden plank as a bridge between the private patio and the train station.
Contact: Dmitry Yakhnis, Citi Habitats,  (917) 968-2314

Two Bedrooms and a Purple Room in Bath Beach
Price: $1,600
Location: 120 27th Avenue
Description: This apartment has a backyard and a porch. The landlord even pays the heat and hot water, cooking gas and electric. But wait, they’ve also painted one of the rooms purple! Now we really know what “unbeatable” means.

Two Family “Frame” Home in Bensonhurst
Price: $988,000
Viewing: All weekend, 12:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m.
Location: 1840 85th Street
Description: It’s not exactly clear what is meant by a frame home. There’s A-Frame homes and timber frame homes, neither of which look like this place. So, using context clues, I hereby declare that the term frame home refers to creepy looking houses that are, if not haunted, definitely home to one-eyed feral cats.

Two Bedroom Condo in Bensonhurst
Price: $499,000
Viewing: August 31, 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.

Price: $160,000
Viewing: August 30, 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Location: 2606 Cropsey Avenue
Description: This Co-Op has an “oversized” one bedroom. So it’s not quote using the Standard T-Shirt Measurement but the description suggests a shirt that isn’t particularly large but it’s comfortable after years of wear.

Two Bedrooms on Bay Ridge Avenue
Price: $1,850
Location: Bay Ridge Avenue
Description:  Holy cow, what is that in the photo? I want that. Sign me up for a half dozen. Wait, two months security required? Is one month for the apartment, and the other for that AMAZING thing in the breeding room?
Contact: Svetlana Aksman, DSA Realty, (718) 629-8722.

There’s Nothing Creepy About The Name Gravesend
Price: $1,500
Location: West 3rd Street
Description: Sure, when you tell Brooklyn transplants you’ve got a one bedroom in Gravesend, they may think that’s some sort of colloquialism for a funeral plot. But really you could be speaking abut this place, which has high ceilings and tons of light and no known corpses.
Contact: Chris Shiamilis, Ardor New York, (212) 588-3000.

One Bedroom Near the N Train
Price: $1,395
Location: 74th Street and Bay Parkway
Description: It’s very pleasant, and there’s a park across the street. It’s also modern, so you won’t have to go outside to use the bathroom. Though, I suppose you could if you wanted. Just make sure to bag it when you’re done and, you know, throw it under a car or something like everybody else ’round here does.

Single Family Home in Dyker Heights
Price: $1,375,000
Viewing: August 17, 1:00 – 3:00 p.m.
Location: 1145 Bay Ridge Parkway
Description: Now when they say a single family, they don’t mean a family unit made up of one sad and lonely man who eats breakfast in his tattered underwear. But if you fit the bill, go ahead and treat yourself to this six bedroom, three bathroom brick house.
Contact: Janine Acquefredda, House N’ Key Realty, (917) 584-7685

Two Family Brick Home in Bath Beach
Price: $839,000
Viewing: August 17, 12 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.
Location: 197 Bay 14th Street
Description: With two floors and eight rooms this house — not apartment — is a basic home with a few added frills in the form of a back and front terrace and a “long” yard. Maybe even the longest yard you’ll see this weekend.
Contact: Gina Metjaic, ReMax, (718) 236-7100

Two Family Home in Bensonhurst
Price: $919,000
Viewing: August 17, 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.
Location: 2150 67th Street
Description: There are three bedrooms and two full bathrooms in this house. The realtor notes that there is “great potential” but besides for living out the American Dream, I don’t see any other potential. Unless of course you need a hide-out.
Contact: Minh Duong, Weichert Realtors, (800) 375-2613

Two Bedroom Condo in Gravesend
Price: $387,000
Viewing: All weekend, 3:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Location: 526 Avenue Z
Description: Do you wish to own property but are too attached to living extremely close to strangers and walking up several flights of stairs? Well then you can own this thing called a condo and it’s basically buying property that doesn’t actually touch the ground. There are two bathrooms and a balcony sprawled across 1,021 square feet.

French Doors, Cool Curtains on 20th Avenue
Price: $1,250
Location: 6503 20th Avenue
Description: Look, I just like artsy looking real estate photographs, so these guys get the top slot this week. Also, big fan of the agent’s honesty. In her video tour of the apartment, she points out that the floors are not real wood – they’re laminate. Ain’t no one trying to trick you here.
Contact: Pat Caltabiano, (917) 945-9155.

Two Bedrooms at Bay Parkway 
Price: $1,850
Location: Bay Parkway
Description: Decent size, well-lit by sunlight, a surprising number of closets and very white kitchen and bathroom. Not at all a terrible deal.
Contact: Chauncey Palmer, Oxford Property Group, (347) 409-7970.

Two Bedroom Attic of a Private Home
Price: $1,750
Location: 2124 81st Street
Description: As someone who grew up living in an attic, the arched ceilings in the photo gave it away. Looking up the address on Google Street View revealed a house that appears to have been converted into three apartments. Despite the walk-up and low ceiling, it looks like a pretty nice spot for a vertically challenged family.

Three Bedrooms in Bensonhurst
Price: $1,750
Location: 77th Street and 17th Avenue
Description: What do you call an exposed brick wall with white paint on it? Maybe just that. Anyway, that’s what this apartment has, along with an aluminum ladder in the bathtub.
Contact: Daniel Gallogly, Basile Realty,  (718) 449-0505

Two Bedrooms in Bath Beach
Price: $1,400
Location: Bath Avenue and Bay 28th Street
Description: This apartment is on the second floor of a private home. The bedrooms have been renovated.
Contact: Eduardo Artica, Coldwell Banker,  (718) 844-6824

One Bedroom in Bensonhurst
Price: $1,200
Location: 85th Street and 21st Avenue
Description: The pictures in this listing have almost no sunlight and are mostly filled with shadows instead of the usual couch. The realtor is either not very good at hiding the lack of sunlight or he just finished watching a film noir.
Contact:Mike Friedman, Realty, (347) 408-5622

One Bedroom in Bensonhurst
Price: $1,500
Location: 21st Avenue and Bay Ridge Parkway
Description: This apartment is on the small side, with an eat-in kitchen and a basic living room. The hardwood floors are oak, but how do we know that? Who regulates these things and is oak really the best kind of wood? Is there a demand for rare wood found in the Amazon? We have no idea.

Two Bedrooms in Bensonhurst
Price: $1,500
Location: 77th Street between 20th Avenue and 21st Avenue
Description: A newly renovated apartment is decent enough. But what you really want to look for is an apartment in “mint” condition. Just who mints an  apartment and why, is one of the great mysteries of the universe.
Contact: Jillene McMillan, Kian Realty, (917) 635-7241

One Bedroom in Gravesend
Price: $1,525
Location: West 3rd Street and Kings Highway
Description: With an elevator and an intercom, you’ll never really need to do much of anything besides unlock the door. This apartment has multiple closets, a necessity in the city. They also come in handy when you want to do that Scooby-Doo thing of running in and out of them while a monster chases you.
Contact: Megan Kernan, DSA Realty, (917) 231-6289

One Studio in Bath Beach
Price: $1,200
Location: Bay 37th Street
Description: With nine pictures in this listing, it’s possible that there are more photos than square feet. It’s a first-floor studio and while all of the pictures contain cleaning apparatus they all have a picture of a yellow spray cleaner. No word if that glamorous liquid comes with the apartment.
Contact:Rapid Realty, (347) 460-2062

Two Bedrooms in Bensonhurst
Price: $1,550
Location: 1860 Bay Ridge Parkway
Description: If you have anger-management then you shouldn’t apply here. The doors look too flimsy to handle any real attention. The bathroom is nice and even has a little window that you can peer out of while taking a shower, giving you that authentic prison feeling.
Contact: Zane Miller, 25 Realty, (347) 441-7067

The owner of the landmarked Shore Theater has been declining all proposals to rehabilitate and reactivate the building, including one by a Manhattan restaurateur to turn it into a sprawling restaurant and culinary school.

The 1301 Surf Avenue building was inherited by Jasmine Bullard following the 2013 death of her father, Horace, a Coney Island visionary who long fought to revitalize the neighborhood during its darkest days. Although the building was on the market at the time of his death, Bullard has declined to hear out would-be buyers, Brooklyn Eagle reports.

“I have clients who are ready, willing and able to write a check for the Shore today,” broker Joe Vitacco told Eye on Real Estate.

He has tried to submit purchase offers to her, but in vain: “She won’t even look at them.”

Vitacco said he has four “solid” suitors for the Shore Theater:

* A “very well known restaurateur” from Manhattan who wants to build a cooking school downstairs and a restaurant on the top two floors.

“The view from the seventh floor is magnificent,” he said, and there’s a Juliet balcony where diners would be able to watch the Brooklyn Cyclones playing baseball at MCU Park.

* A “nationally known athlete” who would turn the Shore back into a movie theater — and no, it’s not Magic Johnson (who isn’t actively involved in Magic Johnson Theatres’ operations these days, anyway).

* A billionaire with a home in Brooklyn who “thinks it’s a beautiful building and should be restored,” Vitacco said.

This interested party made an offer when Horace Bullard was alive, but it wasn’t high enough. Now, “he’s willing to come to the table with more money,” the broker said.

* A real estate developer who is involved in Coney Island.

Vitacco marketed Horace Bullard’s properties for about a decade. When the Shore was Vitacco’s listing, the asking price was $12 million.

It is estimated that it will take approximately $35 million to renovate the 115,000-square-foot, seven-story structure.

One Bedroom Duplex in Gravesend
Price: $1,700
Location: 26 Highlawn Avenue
Description: Besides having two floors, this apartment also comes with two “oversized” balconies. Parking space comes with the rent.
Contact: Patrice Mack, Corcoran Group, (718) 923-8012

Two Bedrooms in Bensonhurst
Price: $1,750
Location: 81st Street between 21st Avenue and Bay Parkway
Description: With brand new appliances, sunny rooms and a big bathroom this apartment seems like a good choice. But heat and hot water are not included. And I recall once saying, in a moment of inspiration, that if a realtor ever tried to not include heat and hot water then the masses should rise up in revolt.
Contact:Svetlana Aksman, DSA Realty, (718) 629-8722

One Bedroom in Bensonhurst and Some Tile-Floor in Bensonhurst
Price: $1,100
Location: Bay 40th Street
Description: This apartment is a walk-in apartment and the floors aren’t wooden so go ahead and boogy away without worrying about scratching the floors. The kitchen is “modern.” So there’s no need to churn your own milk and you get one of those awesome devices with waves that are micro.
Contact: Johanna Gyuro, Johanna Gyuro Real Estate, (917) 838-1937

One Bedroom in Bath Beach
Price: $1,700
Location: 8610 18th Avenue
Description: While this apartment doesn’t have a dining room, it does have a “breakfast nook,” which is a cute way of saying there’s a corner in the kitchen that you could use if you don’t have a toaster. The realtor writes that the owner requires “great income.” Well, I think my income is pretty great and while we’re on the topic, it would be swell to get an even greater income. [Ed. -- Too bad.]
