Listing of the Day: For the Solitary Drinker

4315 Webster Avenue, Studio co-op - $79,000

At 475 square feet, you wouldn't have much room for anything more than yourself and a six-pack of Bud... but you'd be gloriously close to the drinker's haven that is McLean Avenue. So if drinking alone in your tiny studio isn't your thing, there'd be tons of friendly Irish folks just a stone's throw away ready to befriend you. Your low maintenance of $300/month would leave some nice extra cash for drinking with your new mates. No interior pics of this unit, so it's anyone's guess how much work it will need.

Once again, here's the Woodlawn spiel:

Woodlawn is a very unique neighborhood in the Bronx. It is an Irish enclave that has enough bars and pubs to make even Galway jealous. Our favorites are Rory Dolan's (technically in Yonkers) on McLean Avenue and the Rambling House on Katonah Ave (funny story about the Rambling House and my daughter's baptism, but that's one to be told over a pint). The shepherd's pie and other Irish specialties are can't misses.

The people in Woodlawn are super-friendly (hey, a lot of them are happy drunks, I guess). Obviously St. Patty's Day is not to missed up here. You'd have some shopping up and down Katonah and McLean Avenues. You'd be able to easily access the Woodlawn Metro-North stop for quick access to Manhattan.
