Culture on the Cheap
Location, Location, Location…
The one thing I am going to miss now that the real estate boom is over is the mind-bogglingly bad locations being shilled as quite “livable” by developers. Let’s take the L Haus, for example.
Nestled next to Brooklyn’s Eighth Wonder Of The World (that being the Pulaski Bridge) this phlegm-hued architectural marvel makes me think of many things. Livability is not one of them. But believe it or not I discovered recently locations can come worse. Where did I have this epiphany, you ask? Where else: Greenpoint. Albeit by a nose.
Behold 20 Division Place.
Located at the bucolic paradise that is the intersection of Division Place and Debevoise Avenue, this lot not only sits atop the Meeker Avenue plume, but it is also been approved by the Board Of Standards and Appeals (in their nothing less than Solomon-like wisdom) for six condominium units and four garages! I know you are all reaching for check books about now so I have been kind enough to share the scenic vistas which await the person lucky enough to call this Valhalla home.
Here’s Debevoise Avenue looking north.
Division Place facing east.
Debevoise Avenue facing south.
If you lived here these shoes could be yours!
And of course Division Place facing west. I am certain there’s a nice view of Manhattan to be had here if exercise enough imagination.
And while you’re there why not say hello to some of your new neighbors?
The folks in apartment two seem like normal enough folks to me.
