Let’s all take a minute to remember our dear friend Jimmy McMillan who once proclaimed that thou rent is “too damn high."
Preach on, Jimmy. Preach on.
For those of you who have yet to reevaluate your stance on suburbia and dining at the Olive Garden, and have instead decided to grin and bear the New York grind for another year, here is a round-up of current real estate you can expect to pay entirely too much for.
**PLACES FOR SALE**
Location: 467 14th Street (8th Ave & Prospect Park West)
Real Estate Agency: Real Direct
What it's like: This historical landmark is porn for an architect or design enthusiast. Recently renovated by its architect owner, it features a number of updated originals mixed with stunning new renovation. With 12-rooms, 4-bedrooms, fireplaces, a garage and more outdoor spaces you can count, this place just may be worth the price tag.
Why you might want this place: Because you’re a Harry Potter enthusiast and have been dying for a library ladder to access you custom double high kitchen cabinetry.
Why this place might suck: While it’s cool to boast your house as part of the “Park Slope Historic House Tour," we imagine the parade lines outside your front door would get old real fast. Just ask Sarah Jessica Parker.
