Descriptions of 740 Empire Blvd

Although this place is not directly next to trains, its a nice 10 minute walk to 3,4 express trains at the Schenectady entrance of the Crown Heights-Utica stop, and very close to B17, B43, and B46 buses. It is priced so reasonably because of it's distance from the trains and not because it's lacking in quality and size like many other units in the neighborhood closer to Eastern Parkway. If you haven't been south of Eastern Parkway over in this area you might be pleasantly surprised to see that it is beautiful, clean, quiet and tree-lined. I am very familiar with this buidling, and it has a great landlord and responsive super. Just 1st and security to move in, heat and hot water included. Benjamin Haskin (Jul 2013)
