Park Slope isn’t the only area where prices are creeping up. West Side brownstones are losing their rooming-house status and returning to single-family (or, more often, two- or three-couple) use. Huge high-rises continue to go up along Third Avenue. On the East Side, the same buzzword is on everyone’s lips: “Is your building going co-op? What was your inside price?” And we even hear that—now that the Lower Manhattan Expressway looks unlikely to be built across Broome Street—the loft buildings south of Houston Street are drawing interest both as artists’ studios and as spaces where creative types can live and work.
