We did a little poking around to see what we could find for $250K around the region. In Queens, we’ve included a traditional 2 bedroom in Forest Hills. For $1K more in Manhattan the apartment is a cozy 130 square foot studio. In Brooklyn, its also a studio, but of course a bit larger. Moving up to Westchester, we’ve got a two bedroom, and up in Dutchess we’ve included a log cabin with 5 acres. Yes, the range here is 130 square feet to 5 acres.
