Here they are in the East Bronx. I'm kind of embarrassed to say that I don't know what neighborhood this is considered-- it's off Allerton Avenue a little west of Eastchester Road. On google it's just above Pelham Gardens.

Here is an unfortunate combination of those newer townhouses with chrome fence and aluminum door awning detailed in chrome. All the stuff I hate most in one house! This is in Pelham Gardens.

This is just down the block.

There's no point! Does East Flatbush also have those little concrete lions? Do you know what I'm talking about? I remember being in East New York years ago and seeing quite a few of those.

Doing the whole house in those 12 x 12 Home Depot ceramic tiles and then asking almost 700K for it?

I actually saw an owner once (Dominican) in the process of putting those tiles on the outside of his house - covering up brick that I guess needed repointing.

A lot of the developers also have terrible designs and are poorly using NYC land bu Iím sure zoning plays a part.

Not really a big fan of those pencil thin new apartment buildings. Seen one on a vacant lot on Myrtle and here Iím thinking that this nice vacant land could be used to make a giant nice piece of development but nope thereís a silly pencil thin building sitting right in the middle of the land!
