Descriptions of 325 E 8th St

This neighborhood's Victorian mansions and quiet side streets evoke a pastoral charm, but its commercial corridors remind you that you've made it to the 21st century. There's a central Brooklyn neighborhood where you can hitch up your horse at an early 1900s barn. Luckily, its shops (and Manhattan) aren't difficult to access thanks to the F train. Marvin Worrell (Jun 2013)
Last, but not least, your furry lovers are welcome to live life happily ever after with you in this unique gem in an idyllic neighborhood close to the Q train. East 8th Street bewteen Cortelyou and and Avenue C. David Marchman (Mar 2013)
