I have been living at One Brooklyn Bridge two years, but we finally signed the contracts to sell our apt! Yay! I love my actual apartment: The layout and waterfront views are spectacular, but this particular area of Brooklyn Heights was just too isolated for my family. And, frankly, we missed the community in Dumbo.
Had we been more patient, I know it will be incredible once the Brooklyn Bridge Park is completed and retail moves in, but we just wanted more immediate action. Also, I desperately needed an organic market outside my door where i can pick up fresh produce, fish, or meat regularly, without having to hop in the car.
