This week’s Open House Scorecard -- the 10 open houses saved on StreetEasy more often than any others this weekend -- illustrates that (surprise!) buyers are drawn to Park Slope, and President Street in particular. Hey, if you can’t be President, you can at least live on President Street, right? 

Between Sixth and Seventh Avenues at 790 President Street is a $675k two-bedroom plus den, one-bathroom co-op (pictured). It's one flight of stairs up and features the original moldings, French doors, and stained glass windows. The windowed kitchen is new and has stainless steel appliances. A W/D is located off the kitchen, and Prospect Park is nearby. Monthlies are relatively low with maintenance at $590.

At 782 President Street, also between Sixth and Seventh Avenues, you’ll find a three-bedroom, one-bathroom top floor prewar co-op on the market for $985k. The apartment is one of six units in the limestone building, and it’s for sale by owner. There's a wood-burning fireplace in the living room, a decorative one in the master bedroom, and a full-sized, vented washer/dryer. But the cherry on top is a private roof deck with Manhattan skyline views. Note: It's a walk-up.

A $575k two-bedroom, one-bathroom co-op is close to Prospect Park. Located at 943 President between Prospect Park West and Eighth Avenue, the prewar unit faces south and is sunny. The kitchen is windowed, and the dining room has space for a table that seats six. The building has a common laundry room and a courtyard.
