Pining for a house in Brooklyn feels almost cliché. To which we say: So what? There’s a reason it’s become shorthand. But a house in Brooklyn for under two million? As it appears, not such a dream, after all. These properties are all hosting open houses this weekend, and with price tags that — by New York standards, anyway — don’t seem painfully out of reach.
