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.

Location: 197 Bay 14th Street

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.]

One Bedroom in Quiet 74th Street Building
Price: $1,395
Location: 74th Street and Bay Parkway
Description: With the decent price, we’re willing to let slide the agent’s gaff in calling it a “very peasant neighborhood.” Maybe it’s not a gaff. Maybe he just doesn’t think very highly of us. But, hey, it’s quiet, and dogs and cats are allowed.
Contact: Frankel Desdunes, Oxford Property Group, (347) 683-0917

Two Bedrooms at Bay Parkway
Price: $1,850
Location: Bay Parkway
Description: Hey, an elevator. And “gorgeous light,” as opposed to the rather gross light. There’s a live-in super, too, but don’t worry – he won’t live with you. No one wants that.
Contact: Ida Hamdan, Ardor New York Realty, (212) 588-3000.

A Sunny Two Bedroom on 81st Street
Price: $1,875
Location: 81st Street
Description: A rather nice looking kitchen, a stylish bathroom – who could ask for more? This is a two bedroom, but the agent say you can convert the living room into a bedroom as well. Every room is separated with a door, so presumably you can turn all of them into bedrooms and start your own flophouse. Dream big, buddy.

Two Bedrooms in Gravesend
Price: $1,850
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.
Contact: Audrey Negron, Properties Group, (718) 594-6623

Four Bedrooms in Bensonhurst
Price: $2,200
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.
Contact: Coldwell Banker, (718) 921-3100

One Bedroom and a Slightly Ajar Fridge in Mapleton
Price: $1,320
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.)
Contact: Sophia Kapassakis, Ardor New York Real Estate, (646) 266-7598

Three Bedrooms in Bensonhurst
Price: $1,800
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.

Three Bedrooms and a Ladder in the Bathroom in Bensonhurst
Price: $2,300
Location: 1938 77th Street
Description: The pictures of this apartment clearly show the “gut renovation” mentioned in the post. But looking beyond the grim construction workers and the allergy-inducing dust, you can see a beautiful apartment (I used a similar tactic on my acne-pocked friend in high school). There is no mention of dogs or cats, but the realtor notes that international students are okay.
Contact:Donald Oula, Charles Rutenberg Realty, (917) 853-4680

One Bedroom and a Shadowy Figure in Bath Beach
Price: $1,350
Location: 8785 Bay 16th Street
Description: With a window-view of some random two-story home, this apartment is perfect for those who just want an apartment. There’s also cable ready in the apartment, which might just mean that there is a white cable for basic channels. In which case, thanks for the obvious information, realtor.
Contact: Shaan Ali, US25 Realty, (347) 261-1632

Two Bedrooms and Two Floors in Bensonhurst
Price: $1,750
Location: 1052 66th Street
Description: Besides for being on two floors, this apartment has “impeccable” bedrooms. The apartment looks huge and very spacious. Unfortunately, pets and smokers aren’t allowed so I suggest a Furby and one of those vaporizers that’s all the rage.
Contact:Kurt Vikki, Douglas Elliman, (718) 840-2047

A three-story building at 6923 18th Avenue, on the corner of 70th Street, has been scooped up by Cheng Shi, a developer who plans to expand the property’s retail offerings, as well as build new medical offices.

The deal closed last month for $1.98 million, negotiated by Kalmon Dolgin Affiliates broker Jeffrey Unger. (Note: city records indicate a sale price of $990,000. We contacted the broker, who provided the $1.98 million figure, for confirmation and will update when we hear back.)

Shi plans to renovate the building, with two ground-floor retail spaces and medical and dental offices on the second and third floors.

The building currently sports just shy of 4,800 square feet of space, split equally for retail, office and residential uses, according to PropertyShark. It was built in 1931, and sits a 20-foot-by-80-foot lot. No plans for construction have yet been filed with the Department of Building, according to the agency’s website.

UPDATE (12:13 p.m.): We confirmed the price, and a strikeout has been added above.
