so your take away from the very first sentence in my post of "These rents are getting insane:" is that i'm saying ENY is happening and these are a bargain? Maybe you should read the original post before firing off one of your snarky comments.

ENY might not be "happening" but these rising prices in both real estate and rental prices which I provide examples of, do indicate the area is already becoming out of reach for current residents and if it continues this neighborhood will be different in just a few years. I'm also not the only one seeing whats going on, a lot of my neighbors are concerned about being priced out.

These neighborhoods even have a ton of blocks with beautiful row houses.

I think once these hipsters/yuppies/New Natives start having more and bigger families they will start looking into these neighborhoods. It makes total sense since these are the last few neighborhoods where you can have the best off both worlds, they are urban enough where you have access to trains (Manhattan & Brooklyn) but give you enough of a suburban feel where you have a yard and driveways, front lawns and nature. It's the same reason the middle class originally moved into these neighborhoods.

When you want but can't afford one of those Victorians in Ditmas Park people will start justifying that commute to Richmond Hill, Here's a victorian a few blocks from the J:

That's a nice looking house. How much does something like that go for?

Woodhaven and Richmond Hill (north) have some nice properties. I assume Henna that house would go for 800k minimal. I've seen that house in person several times. It's located 2-3 stops away from my new location here in Woodhaven. The green one up the block is nice too. I photographed it 2 different times I believe.

I think that's a good guess. I looked at some listings quickly. Most are crappier looking houses for in the $400K to $600k range. This one (link below) looks more similar to those nice ones on Google maps and is asking $888K
