This prewar co-op at 54-17 31st Avenue in Woodside has three bedrooms and one bathroom and was recently renovated. The 1930s building, Boulevard Gardens, was designed by Theobald Henry Engelhardt, the son of Brooklyn’s well-known architect Theobald M. Engelhardt. It has a children’s playground with sprinkler pool as well as an indoor playroom, storage, and bike storage. It’s also close to Astoria and the R, which gets you into Manhattan or to Woodside’s excellent restaurants and Jackson Heights quickly. Do you think it’s a good deal for $379,000?
