1) Mortgage Crap Hitting Fan Hard in Brooklyn & Queens (67 comments)
"I am sure there are some cases of 'ripoffs' but when you finance 95% of the equity in your house with a loan having payments you can barely afford and the loan resets after 5yrs with payments that you definitly can't afford- whose fault is it that when the 5yrs come up you lose your house?"
2) 358 Grove Boldly Pushing Bushwick Boundaries (52 comments)
"Calling out attractions located EIGHT subway stops away would seem to be a pretty misleading practice. In the Manhattan equivalent, you'd be using the Time Warner Center to market my apartment on 110th Street. Am surprised they didn't use the old chestnut of saying these venues are mere "steps" away. . ."
