This is not a bad price for a two bedroom in a pre-war building across the street from the 6 train. The stretch of Alexander Avenue in from 138th north into the 140s is full of really beautiful brownstones. I am assuming that this is in one of those buildings.
Mott Haven has a nascent art scene, a few good eateries like Alexander's, Bruckner Bar and Grill, and Santa Clarita close by, and super close proximity to the City where most of you probably work.
If you're looking to split rent and live in a relatively cool hood, near transportation, art and decent food, check this listing out. Transportation is easy with the 6 across the street.
