Waterfront Living in Brooklyn

Like most Brooklynites we know, we are obsessed with real estate and frequently check out Brownstoner's real estate porn (aka its house, condo or co-op of the day). Unfortunately, the prices are out of reach for the average stiff.

However, there is a way to obtain the American dream, which is also a viable alternative to the overpriced condos in Williamsburg, South Brooklyn and Park Slope. And, it's waterfront property.

For a mere $139,000, you can be the proud owner of a 52-foot houseboat. This floating palace is approximately 1450 square feet, has three bedrooms, two bathrooms (or heads as we say), a woodburning fireplace, washer/dryer, lots of closet space and plenty of outdoor space. This property floats in Mill Basin, which is a bit of a hike from Manhattan, but where else are you going to get a waterfront palace for this price.

For those not willing to take the plunge, it is a fantastic alternative to a Hamptons share.

This is the best idea I've seen in years. I have a new goal in life: Sonny Crockett incarnate. Nice to see the blog back. You do nice work.
