House of the Day: 63 South Portland Avenue


It's hard to imagine a way to make this listing less visible: List it only on your 1998-looking website with no address, no interior pictures and just a few lines of text; then put a small sign in the window and spend no money on a New York Times ad. Brilliant! Of course, the survival of behind-the-times brokering tactics is a bargain hunter's best hope. In this case, the listing is 63 South Portland Avenue, a five-story, 22-foot-wide brownstone on Fort Greene's most fabled park block. The fact that it's a five-family and the listing says "creativity required" suggests this baby will take some work, but it could well be worth it at the asking price of $1,700,000. GMAP
