Crown Heights Park View Under $100K

A brownstone Brooklyn one bedroom, park view for under $100,000? Yes, it does exist, on Carroll Street in Crown Heights. This 125-unit co-op at 1710 Carroll asks $85,000 with monthly maintenance of $459 for a 600 square-foot one bedroom. As outlined by, there are considerations - the apartment will be delivered "as is" and the listing does not include interior photos. Some posters claim the building has endured "financial troubles." Nevertheless, the price and location make this property worth investigating. The building abuts the western edge of 7-acre Lincoln Terrace Park, a Crown Heights landmark named for America's 16th president and completed in 1897. Author Elliot Willensky, raised nearby, recalls Lincoln Terrace as "Kitzel Park" (Yiddish for "Tickle Park"), a hotspot for young flirts. The elegantly landscaped tennis courts date back to the 1930s and were reconstructed in 1996; the park also features trees and shaded walkways, basketball and handball courts and a baseball field. The building is located one block from the IRT Utica Avenue station.
