Who wants to pay top dollar to live near the Brooklyn House of Detention and the perpetual traffic jam approaching the Brooklyn Bridge? Lots of folks, in fact, and this week the NY Times' Habitat column checks in on a couple living in what they see as their oasis, at 110 Livingston St (after selling one of the condos in the old Board of Ed building). "The building has a courtyard where Rosalie can play with other children on nice afternoons. There is a well-equipped gym where Mr. Winters can fit in a quick run on the treadmill almost daily, which he considers a blessing," they write. "With views all the way to the distant F train on the elevated tracks over the Gowanus Canal, the apartment is filled with sunlight." Others must feel similarly. At least according to Streeteasy, there are no rentals or sales left.
