Bed-Stuy's Crooklyn House Sells for $400,000 Over Ask

New, 16 comments

When Douglas Elliman broker Jerry Minsky put the brownstone at 7 Arlington Place on the market in April, he priced the famed house?it's where Spike Lee filmed Crooklyn?at $1.3 million because it needed significant work. He told DNAinfo he anticipated a tough sell. Well, he could not have been more wrong. The house sold in just four days for $1.7 million, $400,000 more than the asking price. The George P. Chappell-designed house may need work, but it boasts a multitude of historic details: stained glass windows, pocket doors, original fireplace mantles, and dark hardwood floors. Will the new owners try for a restoration-and-flip or keep the place for themselves?
