Viewing: October 12, 1:00pm – 3:00pm and October 12, 2:00pm – 5:00pm
Location: 1840 85th Street
Description: You don’t just get a driveway with this house. It’s private. I assume that means a closed off area – perhaps a garage – with anti-debugging capabilities to keep the government off your location history.
Contact: Menachem Trietel, Weichert Realtors, 1-800-375-2613

Four Family Brick Home in Bensonhurst
Price: $1,299,000
Viewing: October 26, 1:00pm – 3:00pm
Location: 1924 77th Street
Description: With seven bedrooms, four bathrooms and a semi-finished basement, you can fit a whole lot of families in here. Guess that’s why they call it a four family home.

Price: $1,200,000
Viewing: October 26, 1:00pm – 4:00pm

Two Bedrooms in Bath Beach
Price: $1,800
Location: Bay 16th Street
Description: I present to you an apartment that is beautifully furnished and therefore I’m going to make a shallow judgement and call the whole apartment equally attractive. Besides the basics like a kitchen, there is also a dining room and a microwave on top of the stove.  The latter being the true gem of this apartment.
Contact: Michael Merola, Citi Habitats, (917) 892-6664

One Bedroom in Gravesend
Price: $1,400
Location: 2155 West 5th Street
Description: Besides the one bedroom, this apartment also has something called a “Den.” This completely alien phrase — to me at least — comes as a sweet word pregnant with possibilities. You could keep a hibernating bear in there, use it as a playroom or just leave it completely empty. Or you could just use it as a second bedroom, I guess.
Contact: Destination Real Estate, (718) 930-7999

One Bedroom in Bensonhurst
Price: $1,490
Location: 2214 64th Street
Description: This apartment gets a lot of sunlight and the whole place is renovated. And, according to the realtor, it’s “an ideal layout for a share.” Let’s just hope you won’t be sharing this place with rodents.
Contact: Gina Fainvets, Giaps Realty Group, (646) 660-3283

One Bedroom in Bensonhurst
Price: $1,299
Location: 1901 84th Street
Description: In the spirit of Halloween, we’ve included an apartment listing that doesn’t have any pictures. This lends it a spirit of mystery, intrigue and a little fear all mingled together in a photo-less apartment. Maybe when you go to see the place, there will just be a white blot in place of an apartment.

Two Bedroom Condo in Bensonhurst
Price: $539,000
Viewing: October 12, 12:00pm – 2:00pm
Location: 143 Avenue O
Description: Based on the pictures and my preternatural instincts, this place is very spacious. There is also a children’s room with a mountain of children’s toys, diapers and a snowboard. Now that’s a good deal.
Contact: Alexander Korotkiy, Coldwell Banker Reliable, (347) 302-0030

Four Family Home in Bath Beach
Price: $1,598,000
Viewing: October 12, 1:00pm – 3:00pm
Location: 67 Bay 37th Street
Description: I’m starting to notice that all these open houses fall on Sundays. But with a seven bedroom house like this with many rooms, they should consider holding the open house on Friday. Viewers can get super drunk and treat the house as a sort of playhouse and then brokers can coax the drunk viewer into buying the place.

Two Bedroom Condo in Bath Beach
Price: $609,000
Viewing: October 12, 1:00pm – 3:00pm
Location: 70 Bay 20th Street
Description: One way of looking at this small abode is to say that it has a roof. But with a few banisters slapped on, saying rooftop terrace sounds so much better. And that’s what we have here. There’ s also a culinary area, an entertainment center and a slumber dome.

Three Bedrooms in Bensonhurst
Price: $2,100
Location: 878 21st Avenue
Description: This apartment has huge windows, or maybe just a lot of them, in the living room. The kitchen has a roll of half-finished paper towels. And one of the bathrooms has that ominous shade of green that causes havoc on the psyche whilst puking in the toilet.
Contact: Svetlana Borovskiy, High Class Realty, (347) 439-8683

Two Bedrooms and Some Other Stuff in Gravesend
Price: $2,300
Location: Avenue P, near Seth Low Playground
Description: The living room is pretty damn big. And the living room is “roomy,” the realtor not so creatively writes. She also writes that a terrace comes with the apartment that’s great for entertaining. But what’s so entertaining about that? Do they expect the tenant to learn how to trapeze?
Contact: Jean Loh, The Crest Group NYC, (646) 359-4388

One Bedroom in Bensonhurst
Price: $1,300
Location: 1377 West 7th Street
Description: At some point, we here at Bensonhurst Bean plan on making these roundups something like Cribs. And this house will not be featured when that day comes. The bathroom doesn’t seem to have a toilet, putting the potential uses for the sink in a new light.
Contact: Eric, Leonidas Realty, (917) 224-6566

One Bedroom and a Few Blinds in Bath Beach
Price: $1,320
Location: Bay Parkway and Bath Avenue
Description: I’m not sure how I feel about the description “airy apartment.” It sounds like I’ll just get a cold from a breeze if I’m there for too long. The wood hasn’t been renovated but they are amazing, according to the realtor. So there you have it.

cropsey

The long-blighted structure at 2300 Cropsey Avenue, formerly a nursing home, will be demolished and replaced with a 24-story residential and office tower.

Located at 23rd Avenue, the 45,688-square-foot property was purchased by a group of Chinese investors late last year for $18.5 million. It’s long sat derelict and overgrown, and became a haven for illegal dumping and graffiti.

Currently the skeleton of a six-story building, it was once the facilities for Haym Salomon Home for Nursing and Rehabilitation, which moved next door several years ago.

Documents filed with the Department of Buildings last week reveal plans for a 273-foot, 24-story building designed by Michael Kang.

YIMBY reports:

The nearly 350,000-square foot building at 2300 Cropsey will contain 170 apartments – we’re guessing condos – divided over 200,000 square of net residential space, for a roomy but modest unit size of almost 1,200 square feet. There will be 60,000 square feet of community facility space, likely marketed towards doctors, with 337 garage parking spaces and a surface lot that will hold 32 stalls.

It’s not clear when work will begin, but it should have better luck than previous plans on the property. Developer Alexander Gurevich proposed to build a similar blend of housing, office space and parking, but ended up defaulting on his $17 million loan, and the property went to the bank. Gurevich was banned from selling condos or co-op units in 2010.

That same year, 2300 Cropsey Avenue also earned the dubious distinction of holding the most violations from the Department of Buildings in Brooklyn.

Two Floor Townhouse in Bensonhurst
Price: $1,200,000
Viewing: September 27, 1:30pm – 3:30pm
Location: 2152 73rd Street
Description: This house has a body of water in the backyard. Yes, it may just be a Koi Pond, but still. Speaking of bodies of water, there’s also a jacuzzi. This apartment is big enough to rent out a part of it that’s semi-detached, according to the realtor.

Four Bedroom, One Family Home in Gravesend
Price: $1,099,000
Viewing: September 28, 1:00pm – 3:00pm
Location: 2467 West Street
Description: As winter approaches, the status of a home’s gas boiler is pretty important, so I hear. Well, this house’s boiler is new as is the water heater, which is really important since there are three bathrooms in this brick house. There’s also a backyard with an above-ground pool.

Two Bedroom Home in Bath Beach
Price: $649,000
Viewing: September 28, 1:00pm – 3:00pm
Location: 241 Bay 23rd Street
Description: This house is small but in a cozy, which tends to soothe the claustrophobia. The bricks have been “repointed.” That may be a good thing.

Three Bedrooms in Bath Beach
Price: $2,100
Location: 8778 21st Avenue
Description: This apartment is in a private home and, based on the pictures, it looks spacious. The rooms face the street and they all appear to be saturated in natural light.
Contact: Svetlana Borovskiy, High Class Realty, (718) 333-0700

Two Bedrooms in Bensonhurst
Price: $1,499
Location: 8544 Bay Parkway
Description: This apartment is located in a private and it’s been renovated. The apartment is “shiny” but the realtor doesn’t specify what exactly is shiny. And, if you ask me, a shiny apartment is a bit tedious. Just think of the eye damage.
Contact: Denny, Leonidas Realty, (718) 833-4184

One Bedroom in Bensonhurst
Price: $1,400
Location: Bay Ridge Parkway and 21st Avenue
Description: Dogs aren’t allowed here but there is a used mattress, according to the pictures, so it all works out in the end. Heat and hot water are included in the rent and there are laundry machines in the building.
Contact: Michael Merola, Citi Habitats, (917) 892-6664

One Bedroom in Bensonhurst
Price: $1,000
Location: 77th Street and 19th Avenue
Description: This apartment occupies that ambiguous world between being a studio and a one bedroom. Since the toilet isn’t in the middle of the living room, we can call it a one bedroom. But it’s small. The realtor writes that it is only for a couple or a single person but you have to wonder why he felt the need to put that in the listing.

Price: $699,000
Viewing: September 14, 12:00pm – 3:00pm
Location: 1982 West 5th Street
Description: This house is on the small side but with French doors and a backyard, it looks like a good investment. Take it from me, the 24-year-old that has never owned a house and still makes fart jokes.
Contact: Julia Trusheva, MXM Realty, (917) 512-8265

Two Bedroom Coop in Bensonhurst
Price: $268,888
Viewing: September 13, 2:00pm – 4:00pm
Location: 8023 19th Avenue
Description: This coop has a washer and dryer and a lot of closet space. Hopefully, that closet space doesn’t also refer to the washer and dryer.

Three Bedroom Home in Bensonhurst
Price:  $1,099,000
Viewing: September 14, 1:00pm – 3:00pm
Location: 1553 West 2nd Street
Description: This listing definitely has some features that seem to be an overkill. The driveway fits six cars and the freezer reaches subzero temperature.

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

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.

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.
