Listing of the Day: Price Chop in Bedford Park!

325 E. 201st Street, 1 bedroom co-op, $147,000

This listing ran back in early September, but BoogieDowner just got word that the price has been dropped. If you're in the market for a one bedroom, it's going to be hard to find something as nice for this cheap.

Yes, that's right... The listing price on this well-kept Bedford Park gem is actually now down to $147K. I'm not sure you can even buy a walk-in closet anywhere else in the city for a price like that. Located in perhaps what is the best building in Bedford Park (we should know, we call it home), this 700 square foot co-op actually has a large eating area which can easily be converted to a second bedroom. The apartment features beautiful hardwood floors throughout and the kitchen and bathroom appear to be in pretty nice shape. You'd also be a neighbor of a State Senator, Pastor Doug of New Day Church, and of course, ErLu itself.

There is tons of stuff to do within walking distance, including The New York Botanical Garden and the Bronx Zoo. The hood is also home to Fordham University and Lehman College, both of which have lots of events, lectures, and programs which are open to the public. Arthur Avenue is also within walking distance, so you never have to go far to find the best ingredients to cook with or Zagat-rated restaurants to dine in. To burn off any weight you gain from the Arthur Avenue visits, you can do any number of outdoor activities on the beautiful Mosholu Parkway's rolling green space. The area is also right along the NYC Greenway bike path which takes you all the way up to Westchester.

Transportation options are abundant. Metro-North's Botanical Garden station is a 2-minute walk away, and the express D and 4 trains are just a few blocks away.
