The photos in this listing for 19 Puritan Avenue (aka 19 75 Road) in Forest Hills are woeful but the house itself is pretty nice–and could be very nice with the right touch.

Why is this Forest Hills home, at 67-60 110 Street, asking $2,500,000? Seriously, we can’t figure it out. It’s a large lot, at 5,000 square feet, but we can’t imagine there’s much development potential since this is a low-density residential area.
