If you look up this home on Google Maps, you may think you're getting a deal, what with the two obvious structures in view being multi-family buildings. But this listing for 86 Bay 47th Street isn't for one of those, it's for what appears to be a shed at the end of a driveway that sits between those two buildings.
An older listing shows that it was paired up with 84 Bay 47th Street, and was being sold off as a combined lot for possible redevelopment—"Attention builders, 84 & 86 Bay 47 sold as a package only, R5 ZONING, combined lot size 40X97... 86 has one family house with 2 rooms and basement with private drive. Both houses need work."
The newer listing is just for 86, however, and being touted as "better than a condo." According to the listing, it is unclear if building an extension up or out is an option—any potential buyer must verify that with an architect. The 1-bedroom structure comes with a driveway that can fit up to six cars, so it's on a sizable lot (which is listed as being 20' x 97')... but is it worth half a million dollars?
The home—built in the 1920s—sits in the Gravesend area of Brooklyn, just about two blocks from Coney Island Creek, one of NYC's polluted waterways. [h/t Reddit]
