"The irony of the story about the guy who bought at 1 Main in 1998 is that his current place (1.3M 2BR at 70 Wash) is probably about the same size as his first place (260K, 1260 sq. ft at 1 Main).

It's picturesque, plenty of fun stuff to do, and I'm sure the residents get used to the train." [Surprise: Dumbo is Brooklyn's Priciest Nabe]
