Price: $895,000

CC/Taxes: $1,074 (tax abatement expires in 2023)

In honor of Fort Greene being named Brooklyn's Best Neighborhood today, we bring you this penthouse in the loudly named Forte. The apartment's highlight is, clearly, the large, open living room with high ceilings, two columns, and curved wall of floor-to-ceiling windows. It's the perfect place to stand, glass of scotch in hand, gazing out over all those other inferior neighborhoods while quietly chuckling to yourself. And all that for under $900K. And, for anyone who needs more evidence that Fort Greene truly is a neighborhood on the rise, the apartment sold for only $635,388 in 2010 and is now eyeing a 40 percent return on investment a mere two years later.
