I called to accept this one and was told it was already assigned to someone else. The guy (I know his name I just don’t wanna put it all out there) that as of now, the woman has not signed on for the apt. If she doesn’t, he’ll consider me.

I agree. I like the 5th ave one better wholeheartedly. It took me seeing all 3 to take into account which unit is for me

Yep. The kitchen at the one which was 2170 Madison was amazing. I loved the countertops, stove, dual door-refrigerator.

I donít want a permanent, direct view of the Pís and for my apt to have traffic noise. The development sits on two parcels of land. I am grateful to the realtor for him working with me and showing me the apts he has. Iíve lived alone for awhile so itís all about being comfortable

Makes sense. I really didn't want to pass it up and have been genuinely happy. At the moment, I'm waiting on Exterior Street since the apartments are HUGE. Studios average 800+ SQFT alone, that's bigger than most one-bedrooms and even some two-bedrooms! Still in Mott Haven, but a better stretch of road than Brook Avenue. Being closer to the 4 train is also good, so I have 3 express options of getting home. Walking distance from the mall is also fantastic.

I won't be in 60% for much longer, so I'd rather nab something I'd be truly happy in for about 10 years, then put that down payment on a condo. I would buy earlier, but I'm a little nervous about such a commitment since it's not as easy as "apply for another lottery" or "just move."

It's been a long term goal for a while. By 30 I should have enough for a 20% down payment on a condo in Parkchester if the prices stay low, but I'm not sure if I want to bite the bullet that fast (only 2 years from now), and besides, prices aren't guaranteed to stay low since lots of people being priced out of Brooklyn and Manhattan are buying-in. Read many threads about people tired of paying gold nuggets for "shoeboxes."

Anyway, I hope everything works out for you.


Ughhhhhhh... adulthood. What I'd give to be a kid again!
