651 Coney Island

Clumping on the heels of Brownstoner and Flatbush Gardener we photographed the lovely 651 Coney Island Ave today. (Here's a picture we took back in April). We know people think Coney Island is an eyesore but we kind of like the Mexican and Pakistani bodegas that line the street as well as the Pakistani businesses below Newkirk. We'd love some trees and to spruce up the outsides of some of those buildings since we think CIA could be more astetically pleasing. That being said we doubt the heavy traffic and lack of beauty along CIA will attract buyers to this especially when Ocean Pkwy is a few blocks away and much prettier to look at sans truck traffic.
