Listing of the Day: Concourse Co-op

Mabel Wayne Pl & East 157th St, 1 Bedroom - $189,000

Even though this apartment is a one bedroom, it's a pretty damn big one at 850 square feet. And all of these building on the Concourse hearken back to a time when the Grand Concourse was the Park Avenue of the Bronx. Many of them are stunning Art Deco masterpieces. By the looks of the lobby shot on here, it seems like the building is one of those masterpieces.

Obviously the proximity to the whole Yankee Stadium development makes this location prime. The Gateway Center should be open this year to provide some top notch shopping. There is decent green space with Franz Sigel and Joyce Kilmer Parks in the hood. The Bronx Museum of the Arts would also be a short walk away. And you'd also be near one of BoogieDowner's favorite bowling amenities: Ball Park Lanes.

Transportation is pretty nice with the 4, B, and D all at Yankee Stadium. Transportation will be getting even more convenient with the new Yankee Stadium Metro North station opening in the next few years.
