It is a beautiful Landmarked Brownstone built in the Longwood Historical District for only $510,000! It was built in 1901, 3 families, a driveway (ahh, sweet. sweet, parking!), a fenced in back yard, and is on a tree-lined block filled with similar brownstones. It is conveniently located about 7 blocks from the Bruckner Expressway, as well as 3 block from the 2/5 train and 4 blocks to the 6 train. What a steal!
You already know that your neighbors' houses would look the Cosby family lives in the hood, because Boogiedowner showcased Longwood's beautiful Brownstones yesterday, but here's another example on the right of how contstruction and development sit side-by-side century old houses in this rapidly changing nabe.

While hanging in your vastly over sized house, you can take a walk to the misnamed (it's actually in Mott Haven) Longwood Arts Gallery @ Hostos College on 149th Street and the Grand Concourse and check out contemporary art like this: "Prayer Booth" by Dylan Mortimer (photo courtesy of Bronx Arts Council via NY Times) NY Times Article
For restaurants and beer-drinking, unless you like bodega beer, you would probably have to scoot over to more gentrified Mott Haven, but the creep is on. It won't be long until Mott Havenites are exploring your new hood. Somebody buy this house and open a bar-restaurant so we can move this thing along.
