Finding Clean Water In Early Days Of Greater Ridgewood Area Wasn’t Easy: Our Neighborhood, The Way It Was

As hard as it may be to imagine Ridgewood and surrounding neighborhoods as mostly farmland, it may be harder still to comprehend life in New York City without a clean, reliable water system.

The first residents of our community depended on fresh water ponds and streams flowing through the area as their primary source of water; those ponds disappeared long ago due to development. It wouldn’t be until the early 19th century that the area would have the network of pipelines, mains and faucets that we now take for granted. Continue Reading ›

Queens High-End Real Estate Market Is Gaining On Brooklyn

 

queens homes for sale nyc

For years, Brooklyn has been the hottest real estate market in New York City outside of Manhattan, but there are signs that Queens is now outpacing Brooklyn.

Prices in Brooklyn fell in the second quarter of this year, while in Queens, the median luxury sales price increased 4.8 percent to $1.31 million, setting a record, according to Douglas Elliman, a real estate and property management firm. Brooklyn also saw sales volume drop, according to Mansion Global, a website that follows the global real estate market. However, that’s not to say that the Brooklyn real estate market is down as a whole.

“The median sales price in Brooklyn has been rising year after year for five-and-a-half years,” Jonathan Miller, author of Douglas Elliman’s report, told Mansion Global. “This is the first decline since 2012.” Stribling, a real estate brokerage that specializes in high-end sales, said that northwest Brooklyn (including the greater Downtown Brooklyn area) performed best and that it had the borough’s highest median price: $1.16 million.
