Ditmas Park, New York’s answer to suburbia. The place where all the cool kids go when they want to show that growing up in Montclair or White Plains or Brookline wasn’t actually half-bad. The place where you can still walk to the subway or down to Cortelyou for killer coffee and the farmers market.
The place where a seven-bedroom Victorian wonder would run you under $100,000. Now they’re all well over a million, at least the nice ones, but it’s still bliss.
