The Epoch Times has been scouring New York City for its “most expensive blocks,” based on median sale prices with at least three home sales over the last two years. Research covers January 2010 to December 2011. In Brooklyn, the newspaper’s March 27 survey comes up with three Park Slope blocks in the top 10, two in Cobble Hill, and one each in Midwood, Carroll Gardens, Manhattan Beach, Homecrest… and Brooklyn Heights.
According to Epoch’s research, based on Property Shark stats, the Heights has the No. 2 priciest block: delimited by Joralemon Street and State Street/Willow Place and Hicks Street, which had a median sale price of $3,125,000. Interesting to note: A single-family home at 33 Willow Place exchanged hands twice, first on Aug. 13, 2010 for $3,600,000 and a second time on June 28, 2011 for $3,920,000.
Overall, the priciest block in Brooklyn is in Midwood, delimited by Avenue I and Avenue J/Ocean Parkway and 7th Avenue, with a median sale price of $4,350,000. The biggest sale there was a single-family home on 935 Ocean Parkway, on Nov. 11, 2010 for $6,130,000. Less than one year later, on Sept. 20, 2011, it exchanged hands again, for a slightly smaller amount of $6,000,000.
