Real Estate Porn.

I learned three unrelated things this morning.

First that a single family home just 5.9 miles from me less than 2 miles from the house I grew up in is for sale for $14,000,000, that FOURTEEN MILLION DOLLARS.  This is one of the 5 bedrooms.  Click here for more photos.  That sure looks like $14 million worth of tackiness squeezed into a $10 box.

Much closer to home, the penthouse just sold for 5.1 Million at On Prospect park.  Sold I said, that is not an asking price.

Really close, I only have to cross 2 streets to get there.












But, back before Park Slope was gentrified we had a not yet important resident  According to the New York Times.a young Barak Obama lived with his girlfriend at 620 2nd Street in 1984.  This is 1/3 of a mile from my front door.  His girlfriend probably paid about $300 a month to live there.

My photo is to the right.  The New York Times to the left.



Every time he took the IRT to get back to Columbia, he would have walked past my front door.

  1. And you didn't know him then?! Too bad as now you could give your recollections of the current President. Nice pics but isn't it just such an outrage that real estate is so expensive?

  2. I think I like my little hobbit house a whole lot better now. I love watching the Home & Garden channel, but honestly, when they have real estate shows in New York or Los Angeles, it doesn't make me jealous at all, just a bit nauseous.
    $14 million would feed a lot of starving people in the third world.

  3. Your home is likely to represent one of the largest investments in your life. In order to make sure the transaction goes smoothly it is of vital importance that you choose the right agent to represent your interests. Fresno Homes For Sale
