802 South 6th Street [Christina Cardone, Keller Williams]

    Magical home on a Queen Village alley lists for $275K
    A funky little Queen Village home, with almost every room on its own floor, just dropped on the market for $275,000. The home is minimalist and stunning. It sits off a quiet, pedestrian-only alleyway. The bright green front door opens into a first floor room, with a brick fireplace and enough space to spread out.

Near neighbors know this property as the one that's used for parking from time to time and also has some signs that threateningly discourage allowing dogs to relieve themselves on the property.
