29 Sunnyside Court, Brooklyn NY For Sale - Trulia

Lol every time I see stuff like this, I laugh and yet feel saddened for the suckers that are city residents these days. 650K? For that? Are you kidding me? A 5 second search on Trulia gave me pages of actual nice houses in Cold Spring with an actual yard and space in a beautiful town with good schools and more parkland than you'll know what to do with. A place where you don't have to share common walls with god knows who. Where rats and roaches aren't commonplace.

This city feels like the twilight zone sometimes lately...

That is indeed too much for Cypress Hills, especially at it's current state since it's not a 'hot neighborhood' right now but likely candidate in the near future.

Cold Springs appears to be a nice town. I'd choose Cold Springs for sure if I didn't have to travel so far and had mullah like that to spend.

If you're qualified to finance 650k on a place (particularly in nyc), then you are anywhere. That's my whole point. In terms of distance: I just did a side by side comparison on the general time it takes to get from the address in the cypress hills listing to midtown, and from cold spring to midtown via metro north. It will take approximately 15-20 minutes longer from cold spring. I'll take that any day of the week on metro north over having to deal with the subways and a cramped street in Brooklyn for the rest of my working life.

Not too bad at all. It takes me about 25-30 minutes from my stop to Delancey, which is like 15-16 local stops plus bridge crossing. As a local I'll add that CH has some notable ghetto elements in it, it can also be loud and some loitering goons here and there, some crime occurs too. I'm sure that's very minimal or absent in Cold Springs, cleaner too.

Back to the CH topic. My particular block went down a few notches down recently, it has gotten extremely ghetto. Some old generation folks (3-4 buildings worth) moved out recently (yeah! they all moved out around the same time!) leaving the properties to the next generation and oh boy! Constant loitering, cars with stereo blasting, weed smoking on the front steps, very loud group conversations. What a difference between the 2 generations.

But if ENY was "hot" the price would be $200-300K more.

It wouldn't be so bad if it weren't a single family house that has been gut converted to a two family (probably illegally with not CofO for a multi family). If it were a true two family the rental income would take a big chunk out of that mortgage which is why they converted it and jacked up the price. This one will sit on the market for a while, theres a lot better stock out there.

On my block some of the kids are hitting teenage years so now theres some of their goon/knucklehead type friends hanging out on the block. Nothing has popped off yet but feels like a matter of time.

This new generation seems to try to hard to live up to the hood idea, this isn't the ghettos of the 80's and 90's and most weren't even alive in those bad days. There's no more crackheads/dealers/prostitutes running around in broad daylight, no burned out/abandoned houses, very little graffiti compared to then and now theres trees on every block now, you couldn't even give away a house in Bed-Stuy back in the day, murders are less than a 10th of what it was then so why do they play like they so hard?? I guess they just don't know how much easier they got it now.
