Gravesend’s Latest Condo Keeps It (Un)Real
Listen, Brooklyn developers, can I get a word with you over here? Ok, good. Now, let’s keep it real. Sometimes – sometimes – you’re a friggin’ idiot. What? No! Don’t get offended, but it’s true. Like, you know, lacking common sense. I mean, you bought an entire block some years ago on Avenue V and West 11th Street with the intention of building some high-end condos. I know, I know – everyone was doing it. There’s money to be made, I get it. But, well, it’s just that not everyone does it a block down from the projects, know what I mean? What? I don’t care how good the market was back then, that’s just dumb. Those projects ain’t goin’ anywhere. It’s the Marlboro projects – been there since ’58 and has almost 4,000 people living there. They not movin’. You really thought people would want to shell out $429,000 and up for your parquet floors, elegant kitchens, and ambient gunshots in the background? Get real, man. Yeah, at least you put indoor parking. But holy fuck, man, really?
