A million freaking dollars and you don’t even get a turret. via Corcoran


Hey, remember when back in the halcyon days of 2013 when that couple first broke the “million-dollars for a Bed-Stuy apartment” barrier, and we all thought “Ha ha, what a couple of doofuses”? Well, it looks like we’re the doofuses for thinking this wouldn’t keep happening, because as per Brownstoner, hey, here’s some more million dollar Bed-Stuy condos. And good golly they are bland.

We’re not saying that people should be panicking in the streets because a duplex apartment with a yard (an apartment! Not even a whole house!) whose closest subway options are the C train and the G train now goes for a million dollars. We are saying that it could be a good idea to put your panicking boots on because it’s almost time to panic, especially if you ever thought things like, “I really like New York and want to stay here forever but also want to build some equity and not rent my whole life.” Then again, if shit like this keeps up, we’ll probably end up with a future like¬†The Purge: Anarchy and then the oceans will swallow us up and then it will mercifully be over.
