What exactly does $750,000 get you in Brooklyn? Let’s have a look.

Apartment 1-I at 42 Maspeth Avenue is a ground-floor one-bedroom 690 square feet condo located in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.  The property is located on the south side of Maspeth Avenue between Bushwick Avenue and Olive Street, about one block west of Cooper Park.
