Who needs the Hamptons when there's real estate available in a the almost-sounds-like-a-country-in-the-Mediterranean-Sea neighborhood of Malba, Queensa place one broker describes as "the Hamptons of Queens." Tucked beside the Whitestone Bridge on the shore of the East River's Powell Cove, Malba is like the Hamptons in that there's a nearby body of water and they're both on Long Islandand that's about it. But hey, playing make-believe is always fun, so here's a four-bedroom colonial with water views at 122 Malba Drive (to be fair, this listing eschews any mention of the Hamptons, so there's a chance it's even less beach-like than this place). It has two working fireplace and a lovely yard filled with trees, but a bunch of dated floral patterns attacked the interiors. Asking price is $4.288 million.
