When most New Yorkers dream of parkfront living, their thoughts often turn to Central Park and the often unattainable listings nearby. However, Central Park designers Frederick Law Olmstead and Calvert Vaux, extended their sights to Bedford-Stuyvesant with Herbert Von King Park, one of the first parks in Brooklyn. Directly across the street, 253 Tompkins Avenue’s design by Issac & Stern is respectful of its surroundings in terms of height - six stories - and materials - a red and brown brick facade inset with traditional windows and setback terraces. Sales have just launched on the residences within.
Current availabilities start at $590K for one-bedrooms and $955K for two-bedrooms. At an average of $1,010 per square foot, this is well above the local median condo price of $860 per square foot (per CityRealty data). See more listings here.

All 10 residences boast gracious proportions and high ceilings to make the most of natural light and parkfront views. Kitchens come outfitted with custom German millwork, gas cooktops, and premium appliances. Additional features include solid wood flooring, central heating and cooling system, Italian porcelain baths, and in-unit washer/dryer.
Select units have private terraces, and all residents have access to a first-floor courtyard garden and a roof deck with panoramic views of Manhattan and Brooklyn. However, the best outdoor space can be found right across the street. Herbert Von King Park’s tall trees and green lawns turned it into a natural town square, and local children and pets are not forgotten with playgrounds and a dog run. The outdoor amphitheater is a popular performance space, and the cultural arts center is in the midst of a significant restoration.
Beyond the park, 253 Tompkins Avenue is set in a lively part of Bedford-Stuyvesant rich in local businesses. Little Roy Coffee is around the corner, and favorites on surrounding blocks include Eugene & Co., Nostrand Cafe, Warude, Burly Coffee, The Corners, and Lovers Rock. The nearby A, C, and G trains offer easy access to Manhattan and other parts of Brooklyn.
