Elmhurst’s Bravo Condominium, at 40-07 73rd Street off Roosevelt Avenue, is looking mighty lonely. Signage out front says the building holds seven one-bedroom units, twenty-one two-bedrooms, and three three-bedrooms. Listings, however, are nowhere to be found online — a Re/Max broker told us over the phone that units are being listed exclusively. He said that 11 apartments are available, although no sales of the other 45 are reflected on public records. He also reported that no one’s moved in yet. We dug up this thread from last summer where one commenter said this: “That so-called luxury condo, “Bravo,” is as silly a construction as I’ve ever seen. Residents could literally reach out and touch the elevated subway if the windows opened….Seriously, the 7 train is no more than 15 feet away from the apartment windows. There don’t look to be any physical amenities in the way of gardens, greenery or even potted plants. I can’t imagine these things selling, even at deep, deep, deep discounts. And the condo market seems to be just fine in the area.” Anyone know what’s really going on here? GMAP

41-25 23rd Street, the dinky three-family property pictured above, just hit public records for $1,875,000. Yes, $1.875M. The reason? For one, it’s located right off of Queens Plaza North and the Queensboro Plaza subway station. And according to PropertyShark, zoning allows for a building five times the current size. The new owners have not filed […]

What a beauty in Douglaston! This historic Colonial is actually nestled in the woods, and looks like it belongs somewhere in Massachusetts, not New York City. The interior, which holds four bedrooms and three bathrooms, is very nice, with a renovated kitchen and a sauna in the master bath. There’s also a large deck that […]
