The Open-House Log


Open House No. 3
60 Pineapple Street, Apartment 3I, Brooklyn Heights.
$1.1 million.
Brokers: Linda Wolff and Deanna Bowman, Corcoran.

Who: Eric Bacolas, ad-agency human-resources director, and his boyfriend, Michael Bonomo, interior designer, joined by Elise Bacolas and her girlfriend, Jenna Glazer.
What are you shopping for? Elise: We’re not looking—we just bought in the building, and we’re trying to get [the guys] to move here. Michael: I was opposed until last week, and then I got out of the car in Dumbo and thought, I could move here. Eric: To come back to Brooklyn where I grew up—you don’t want to be bridge-and-tunnel again.
What do you think?
Eric: The sliding door is brilliant. But we have twelve-foot ceilings and outdoor space. It’ll be hard to live up to. Michael: We have a lot of back-and-forth going on right now. But that’s kind of our relationship.

Who: Doreen Cronin, children’s author (Click, Clack, Moo), Andrew Gottesman, lawyer, and their daughter, Julia.
What are you shopping for? Doreen: We rent on the Upper West Side. Last week, we visited my friend in the suburbs, and it was beautiful. But I can’t do it. Andrew: We’re more inclined to buy in Brooklyn.
What do you think?
Doreen: Our kitchen now is the size of this dining table. We went to an open house months ago on West 114th Street. They got fifteen offers, and it wasn’t even a great apartment. Andrew: That’s when we said, “We’re taking a break.” Now we want to get back in—the market has leveled some.
