At the end of February, that little yellow clapboard house at 474 Dean Street was put up for sale, listed for $1.495 million. And despite a domineering neighbor — or perhaps because of it — the owners of that house received an offer, which they planned to accept, after less than two weeks.Except it's not really the house but the site, which "allows for the construction of a somewhat taller residential building that can include commercial space." You can bet there's a valuable retail outlet to install--or, perhaps, a very carefully constructed new residential building.
“It’s actually way less intrusive than we thought it would be,” said Sally Morgridge, who moved into her boyfriend’s apartment in December. “Though it does depend on who’s playing.”Ok, "very loud," "chanting," and "quite loud." How, then, can the Times tells us that, "[i]n general, residents said that the noise was negligible, less noticeable than sirens from a nearby firehouse and police station"?
“It turns out wrestling fans are very loud,” she explained, “and after a big basketball game there are crowds out chanting ‘Brooklyn.’ My boyfriend tells me Justin Bieber fans were quite loud.”
Lourdes Pacheco, who has lived at 478 Dean Street since the early 1980s, said she loved being able to scamper across the street to take in a show or a game, which she had done six times. (The Marc Anthony concert was particularly good, she said.)Unmentioned: the arena has given away some free or discounted tickets to neighbors, likely including Ms. Pacheco.
