brooklyn: 40 Secret Gardens, Parks And Green Spaces Hidden Across NYC - 08/15/14 03:38 AM

Now that summer is really and truly upon us, we thought we'd explore some of the lesser-known green gems tucked away in far-flung corners of New York City. When everyone you know is spreading an old sheet out on a grassy knoll in Prospect Park or taking their cousin for a stroll along the High Line, a storehouse of under-the-radar spots becomes crucial. From unexpected oases in the atria of office buildings (Ford Foundation, we're looking at you) to 17th-century farmhouses that still keep piglets in a pen and crops a-growin' (oh hey, Queens County Farm Museum), there's a destination for … (3 comments)

brooklyn: THE MUST-READS: 22 ESSENTIAL NEW YORK NEIGHBORHOOD BLOGS - 08/11/14 01:02 AM
Even in a city with six daily newspapers, there's far more news than any one publication could cover, especially when it comes to the nitty gritty stuff that happens at the hyper-local level--new bars, new developments, the closing of beloved corner businesses, updates on your subway stop of choice, and everything in between. 
Filling the gap is a vibrant ecosystem of neighborhood blogs that cater to new transplants and life-long residents alike, consistently breaking stories the bigger guys get to months after the fact, and doing it from the perspective of people with the same day-to-day concerns as you.
Admittedly, some parts of the city are more … (0 comments)

brooklyn: RENTING OFF THE L TRAIN: WHAT DOES IT REALLY COST, AND WHAT DO YOU GET - 06/19/14 03:44 AM
Does moving farther east still get you a deal? It's conventional wisdom that living closer to Manhattan saves you on rent. But what does it actually cost to live along successive L train stops?
Shooting straight off the East Village into north Brooklyn, the L train is almost like a road map of gentrification and future rent hikes. For years now, the city's budget-conscious and/or artistically inclined have found accommodation off the L, and as landlords have hiked prices, they've steadily moved stops farther from Manhattan, ​adding a few minutes to the commute to save on rent. The pattern is so well-established that the L has earned the nickname "the line of … (0 comments)

brooklyn: Buying a condo, one piece at a time - 12/12/08 12:45 AM
 
New rent-to-own programs are allowing tenants to use their rent toward down payments  
In the rent-to-own program at the Decora in Williamsburg, all rent goes toward the down payment.
As the market sours and potential first-time buyers become more indecisive about whether it makes sense to plunk down money for a purchase, some developers are allowing them to hold off on the big decision. Those developers, who are predominantly in Brooklyn, are trying to woo would-be buyers with deals that allow them to rent a unit in a condo building while at the same time putting their monthly rent … (1 comments)
