I had an apartment like that in Inwood with a sunken living room. It was lovely. That 2 bedroom is about the price of a Victorian house like the one I posted earlier on Perry in Bedford Park so I'd choose the house hands down.

Or you could buy three 2 br 1 bath coops on Mosholu Parkway for less than what you'd pay for that 2 br 1 bath apartment in Hudson Heights.

This is the place you were talking about in Riverdale. It's too bad about the tall buildings on either side but worth walking over one day.

The one to the left is actually quite nice, and built I believe not too long after the Villa Charlotte Brontë. Very nice façade and interior. The rest of the buildings following are mainly co-ops or condos, built during various times, but all have great views of the Hudson. It is VERY quiet there despite the apartment buildings. Further north of Palisade it becomes more suburban feeling and you will see more charming houses like this one:

As you can see, the prices vary. This house is worth about $3.2 million. The apartments in Villa Charlotte Brontë go for over a million, but further north, you can find co-opa that are more reasonably priced.

Mainly Manhattan, and especially in areas like the Upper West Side. Hell prices are close to those in Riverdale now. Only difference is not as much space on the Upper West.

I was wondering how co-op prices were holding up over there and went to look at sold properties on Zillow. I didn't realize just how much a lot of those houses sold for - the highest was for $5 mil, about 7 properties above $2.5 mil. Quite a few for $1 mil.

Wow how is that kind of money available for constructing supportive housing? Then there's the maintenance, because with so much going up, it's gotta cost an arm and a leg to maintain and provide services.

Oops, I meant west side / north west section of Bedford Park. Even though it was the east side that was rezoned, the west side already had zoning that allowed for much taller buildings. I wonder if that's why they're seeing so much of this development over there. I think it will say a lot if prices for coops on the northern part of Grand Concourse and western end of Mosholu start to take a big hit.
