Most Expensive Blocks in Brooklyn
Map of the most expensive blocks in Brooklyn

It’s time for our third and final post covering the most expensive blocks in New York City, and this time we analyze Brooklyn. If you haven’t read the first two entries (covering the most expensive blocks in Queens and over NYC as a whole), you can do it here and here.

If you look at the map of the priciest blocks in Brooklyn, you may notice that Park Slope has 3 blocks in the top 10, followed by Cobble Hill with 2. Midwood, Brooklyn Heights, Carroll Gardens, Manhattan Beach and Homecrest are represented in the top 10 by one block each.

The priciest block  in Brooklyn is in Midwood, delimited by Avenue I and Avenue J / Ocean Parkway and East 7th Street, with a median sale price of $4,350,000. The biggest sale here was the single-family home on 935 Ocean Parkway. It sold on November 11th, 2010 for $6,130,000. Less than one year later, on September 20th, 2011, it exchanged hands again, for a slightly smaller amount of $6,000,000.

The second priciest block is in Brooklyn Heights, delimited by Joralemon Street and State Street / Willow Place and Hicks Street, which had a median sale price of $3,125,000. A similar thing happened with the most expensive property here as with the one at 935 Ocean Parkway. Namely, the single-family home at 33 Willow Place exchanged hands twice, the first time on August 13th, 2010, for $3,600,000 and the second time on June 28th, 2011 for $3,920,000.

The block that completes the top 3 is in Park Slope, delimited by 2nd Street and 3rd Street / 8th Avenue and Prospect Park West. There were 6 properties sold here, with a median price of $2,818,775. Here’s the complete top 10 of the priciest blocks in Brooklyn:
