I like the one in Flushing. Except maybe the kitchen. The wood beams and floor looks nice. Stairway, hallways too. Pretty.

We have a bunch of tacky houses around here as well. Most of them will even demolish the previous house just to add their own touch of tacky from scratch.


I always found this listing interesting---in a coop full of mostly one bedroom apartments, occasionally two, this person created this huge, over-the-top coop that I cannot see anyone ever buying. I'll say one bedrooms usually list in the 300s in this building. They started asking 1.5 million YEARS ago. Now they're listed just under 1 million.

I was going to say it must be an Italian or Middle Eastern family family, judging by the decor and the family photo. But then the photo of the stairs and hallway shows some stuff hanging on the wall that looks Arabic or Hebrew. So maybe a heavy drinking Jewish or Muslim family (non-practicing of course)

Classic example of lots of money but no class, at least according to our Western culture. Maybe that's something very elegant and desirable in theirs.

Several people linked to this address. Names sound like Russian- Uzbek.

BTW: completely out of style for this neighborhood. It sticks out like a sore thumb.

P.S. I saw some very tacky McMansions on Texas listings. New money.....
