Listing of the Day: Parkchester Condo

5 Metropolitan Oval #3F, 3 Bedrooms - $185,000

This is a pretty sick price if it is actually a three bedroom. At a little over 1,000 square feet it would be a small 3 bedroom, but at $185K it's hard to nit pick. In terms of Parkchester location, it's right at the center of the complex near the oval. Pretty prime...

Here's the Parkchester bit for those who still remain ignorant of its splendors:

Parkchester is often called a city within a city, and this is an apartment within (kind of, really on the outskirts of) 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.

Parkchester has tons 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 with or without roommates or a large inheritance or parental subsidy, check out this apartment and nabe.

Parkchester needs help, I read some stuff over at some site called parkchesterinfo and it was sad to read that this, once lovely neighborhood, has gone down the drain.
So long parkchester

that listing is a steal that even i can afford but i have heard terrible stories about parkchester. The facades of some of those store needs to be either redone or updated.
