Listing of the Day: Operation Open House

297 Alexander Avenue, 5 Bedrooms, 3 bathrooms -$350,000

This is one of those brownstones on Alexander Avenue in Mott Haven. BoogieDowner has recently been stalking a few and marveling at the price chops and amputations that are taking place. This house, while not profiled by BoogieDowner yet, is in the same sinking price boat as the other brownstones in the immediate area. It was listed at $450,000 in December, down to $350,00 now. We have a mission for you, dear readers: Operation Open House.

You know that Mott Haven has a small, but growing art scene; you know that there are some decent eating options around; you know that the price will be much lower than brownstones in any other part of the City; you know that you'd have really convenient transportation. What you and BoogieDowner don't know is what these things look like inside (never any interior pics provided).

What does TLC really mean for these brownstones? Does it mean complete gut, or cosmetic stuff? Does it mean that these things are shells or habitable? So, we implore you dear BoogieDowner readers, embark upon Operation Open House and visit this place on Sunday April 5 between 11am and noon. You could do brunch at Bruckner Bar and Grill when you're done. Report back on Monday with details and pics if possible.
