The New York Daily News recently declared Columbia Heights in Brooklyn Heights as New York City’s “off-the-radar” Millionaire’s Row, following the sale of 212 Columbia Heights for $11 million. The story just keeps gaining traction, most recently picked up by Haute Living, Forbes and The Atlantic. Sniff that!
The six-block “leafy street bordering the Brooklyn Heights Promenade,” says the Daily News, was dubbed the most expensive row of brownstones in Brooklyn real estate, with its views of Lower Manhattan, the Statue of Liberty and the Brooklyn Bridge.
The Atlantic post reads, “Does this herald a new era in Brooklyn? Let’s call it the post-post-artisanal age. And with it, let’s ask the question: If the wealthy hedge-funders we moved to Brooklyn to get away from have now moved to Brooklyn, where are we to go? Back to Manhattan?”
The previous owner of 212 Columbia Heights said, “Brooklyn was always considered a poor step child to Manhattan, but now it is really coming into its own.” This is news?
