When not utterly horrifying (which more often than not is the case), the north Brooklyn real estate feeding frenzy is a considerable source of amusement for yours truly. Blinded by greed (or abject stupidity), the spin-masters charged with shilling developments in less-than-stellar locations get downright creative.

Case in point: the following advertisement at Central Avenue and Stockholm Street.

For Sale

How fancy, how bucolic! This palace reminds me of the Southfork Ranch. In fact, I think I can see J.R. peeking out of one of those windows! Is he looking for the person who shot him?!?

Nope, he’s trying to figure out where all the goddamn noise is coming from!

Stockholm Syndrome

I bet he’s also wondering why would someone want a three car garage when he (or she) can live in a location so close to public transportation.
