12 NYC homes for sale along the G line in Brooklyn and Queens

And they’re all priced under $1 million

View as Map

The G train catches a lot of flack for being useless—it has 2.5 stars on Yelp, because apparently you can rate subway lines—but we’re here to assert that the G is underrated. Sure, maybe 10 years ago it was a less crucial line, but as businesses migrate out of Manhattan seeking cooler—or more affordable—territory, the G has gained some serious clout.

The line runs from Long Island City in Queens to Kensington in Brooklyn, with stops in some of the boroughs’ most rapidly changing neighborhoods along the way. For Curbed’s first-ever Transportation Week, we scouted out 12 apartments within a few blocks from stops up and down the line. We really took ourselves to task: all of the apartments are asking under $1 million, a tall order these days as the boroughs that the G has helped to nurture boom.
