That's actually a little cheaper than I thought

I would've thought 1 bedrooms would be that price

Its actually sickening, and it is the same old "kitchen-living-dining" combo room, that is no bigger than my living room alone, and a bedroom.....so that make it a 2 room apartment.

they usually have way too many un necessary bathrooms, ( and just why cant your guests use your bathroom, and have to have a seperate powder room???) they never enough closets....

and whats worse is there retards that will actually buyt these apartments at these insane price for such a little amount of space, is completely beyond me.

maybe if people stopper buying them at 1M, they would sit vacant fr a while and drive the prices down.

1.3 for 2BR condo in prime Brooklyn is nothing brand new, there are some developments in the Park Slope and Crown Heights (and assume similar) that are getting that.

I do agree 365 Bond feels highly priced, but if people are willing to pay it......
When I first saw their website, they had pictures of people rowing down the canal

the concept of course is nice, the area is great realy is. the grounds arounfdthe building along the canal have been re done, but the canal itself, well, we all know already how toxic it is.

Don't know how you were brought up but for the rest of us it is a good thing to have a "powder room" and a family bathroom.


In proper society guests do not or should not enter the private space of a family's home.


Acceptable use of the powder room varies by society. For most it is a place where one washes one's hands before a meal. That and for the ladies to "powder their noses" (which is how the room got its name). That being said since often safe and clean public "facilities" were historically rare for females, and given their unusual and complicated (compared to men) for going, a john is often in this room as well.


Note however in some cultures it is historically frowned upon to ask for the facilities when invited into someone's home. French culture is an example and explains why pubic restrooms are often hard to find. Even today they are mainly located in tourist areas.

Some people like to have separate bathrooms. The concept of a guest bathroom is not unusual nor is the concept of a separate bathroom for the kids/adults in the upstairs living area. None of this is usual, it's just very expensive per square foot because it's in "hot" Brooklyn.

As for all of the open kitchens, I'm not a fan but I have one because it's the current design trend. My mom recently sold her house and she told me the agent said the kitchen will likely be redesigned by the buyer to create an open living space for the living room/kitchen/dining room. Like it or not, that's what's "in".

I agree on the closet space...but I have a theory that these buildings offer storage space, which they charge for, as a way to make more money.

Actually drove through DT Brooklyn this Thanksgiving holiday (going to Staten Island and had to pick up something), and was gobsmacked at the transformation. It is a whole different place than one remembers late as the middle 1990's.


For the record all that construction (and more planned) for DT Brooklyn is contributing to what some see as a coming (if not arrived already), glut of rental and perhaps condo housing, especially on the higher end of things.
