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, one each in Midwood, Carroll Gardens, Manhattan Beach, Homecrest and Brooklyn Heights… and two in Cobble Hill.
According to Epoch’s research, based on Property Shark stats, Cobble Hill has the No. 4 priciest block: delimited by Warren St to Baltic Street/Clinton Street to Court Street, with a median price of $2.8 million. And at No. 5 in Cobble Hill is Hicks Street to Henry Street/Baltic Street to Kane Street, with a median of $2.7 million.
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.
