More condo conversion chaos in Brooklyn, this time at 505 Court Street in Carroll Gardens. A Curbed reader emails:
Originally converted from a candy factory to apts years ago, it's now turning into condos. The tenants are in an uproar. I feel lucky however, 'cause I can buy my one bedroom for the insider price of just under 450K. What do I get for my $$$ you may ask? Hmm, let's see...700 sq ft, mice, roaches, easy walking distance to the ghetto, no heat in the entire building during the record lows this past winter and an apartment that needs 50K in upgrades to bring it up to date. Yay!Hmmm. Doesn't sound too different from most places in that price range.
