Listing of the Day: Baychester Co-op

Baychester Ave , 3 Bedroom, 1.5 Bathrooms, - $179,000

Ok, now this is in the real periphery of the BoogieDown over near Co-op City and Bay Plaza Mall, but you have to admit that $179K for three bedrooms is pretty shocking - even by Bronx standards.

The thing is big at 1,200 square feet, but does anyone believe this is an actual three bedroom? Is the agent calling a closet or hallway a bedroom? Is there such a thing as a Jr. 5?

If you're out there and reading BoogieDowner agent Frank Colon (as every Bronx realtor should) please chime in and dispel the BoogieDowner's doubt. Is a three bedroom co-op for under $180 a reality?

The pictures do not seem to indicate any grave defects and the hood, while being a bit far from the City, does have proximity to Pelham Bay Park, Orchard Beach, City Island and the aforementioned Bay Plaza going for it. The listings actually boasts of a "terrace with phenomenal views."

Transportation would be the Baychester Avenue 5 train, but up this far north there is certainly a bit of a car culture. Wonder what parking's like?
