A growing number of young couples in Brooklyn driven out by high prices are checking out the Jackson Heights Historic District, a former “garden city” where prices are still reasonable. The block-long, five- and six-story buildings built mostly between 1917 and the 1950s almost all cooperatives with a handful of rentals are known for their hidden courtyards and boulevard sidewalks, among other charms. One-bedroom pre-war apartments go for $170,000 to $250,000, two-bedroom units cost up to $400,000 and larger apartments run up to $650,000. more [Sun]
