Listing of the Day: Parkchetser 2 Bedroom

7 Metropolitan Oval, 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom - $179,000

This is a two bedroom unit right at the famed Oval, which is the heart of the Parkchester community. Parkchester is often called a city within a city, and this is an apartment within that city within a city - got that straight? Well, in any case, what was once a hidden secret is starting to be discovered and gobbled up.

This apartment looks like is really has the pride of ownership stamped on it. The pics seem to indicate a well loved and maintained unit. The listing boasts of the bubble era necessities of granite and stainless steel. No mentionof the common fees associated with this condo.

Parkchester has tons of shopping, chief of which are its own Macy's and a Starbucks. There is also a decent amount of public space to hang at, including the ovals of the complex proper and a few fountains. And who doesn't like fountains? Should we also mention that Parkchester is going to have Verizon FiOs soon too? Well, it will.

Parkchester was built under the same idea as Stuy-Town and Peter Cooper Village in Manhattan, and has the same self-sufficient aura. Parkchester is a safe and family friendly hood with decent transportation via the 6 train and bus service. So if you're looking to own an apartment and have enough money to go out, or just need a place you with enough space that you can actually afford without roommates or a large inheritance or parental subsidy, check out this apartment and nabe.

If NYCHA moved to make their complexes more like Parkchester, Stuy-Town and Peter Cooper Village the entire city would breathe a lot easier. I know it's Idealistic but what a city we would have if it could be done? Ironically the complexes look a lot the same, yet there is a fundamental difference. If you work to own it changes your approach to everything around you and you can ween yourself off of an unforgiving and unrewarding public system.
