This Bay Ridge House Brings the Suburbs Closer to Town

New, 26 comments

Did you once make a promise on the sidewalk outside of CBGB that you would never become one of those corporate drones who moves to the suburbs? And now you're working at Goldman? With kids on the way? Bay Ridge offers a way out without disappointing your former self. Located deep in south Brooklyn, this little neighborhood of stately homes is something like a compact Greenwich—well, four blocks of it anyway—but just seven miles from Manhattan and serviced by an express bus. This particular mansion, which fronts on Fort Hamilton Field, offers eleven rooms, with six bedrooms, five baths, a lawn, and even a three-car garage. Plus, you can tell your co-workers you live in a house on 83rd Street and pay just $2.9M for it.
