“Construction was literally outside the window of every single room except for the kitchen, which looked out on a brick wall,” Mr. Rozboril said.
Mr. Rosen, who grew up near the Holland Tunnel, didn’t think the noise would bother him, but the dim light would. “This was the first one where there were so many more pros than cons, but there was one big con,” Ms. Gerard said. It soon sold for $850,000.
In Park Slope, a beautifully renovated two-bedroom in a small condominium building on a lovely tree-lined block was asking $699,000, with monthly charges in the low $600s.
The couple were number 36 on the open-house sign-in sheet. If one bedroom was small, the other was tiny. Closet space was minimal. The kitchen included a combination washer-dryer rather than a dishwasher, which they found weird. The home wasn’t suitable for them; it quickly sold for $809,000.
In Concord Village, the seven-building co-op complex, circa 1950, near the foot of the Brooklyn Bridge, Ms. Gerard and Mr. Rosen were intrigued by a corner two-bedroom with around 900 square feet, plenty of closet space and a large, open kitchen. The asking price was $799,000, with maintenance of around $1,100 plus assorted amenity fees.
“I knew immediately where I wanted to put my office,” Mr. Rosen said. With quick access to multiple subway lines, it was easy to get anywhere. The bedrooms came outfitted with soundproof windows, which reduced the traffic noise from outside.
