In last week's discussion of housing prices, a Curbed reader brought up the possible impact of end-of-year Wall Street bonuses. Well, I can tell you the impact my end-of-year Wall Street bonus will have: none. So for the rest of us it's a choice between a "spacious" Manhattan studio and, well, possibly a house with a yard and maybe even one or two rental apartments to help with the mortgage. Here's a map of the up-and-coming area of Brooklyn beyond Park Slope, showing 1-3 family homes that sold since Jan 1, 2001 for less than $1 million. Lower prices are colored in darker shades. (Click through to see the map for all of NYC.) Happy hunting—there's a lot out there.
