Earlier this week, we profiled Gravesend, a Brooklyn neighborhood just north of Coney Island. The neighborhood has long attracted immigrants and New Yorkers seeking more space for less money without giving up on city life entirely. The area has been especially attractive to residents of neighboring Bensonhurst lately, according to brokers we spoke to, as prices have risen in that neighborhood to the west. 

For more of a sense of what kind of options are there, here are five apartments and houses for sale in the neighborhood that are having open houses this weekend.

1800 Ocean Pkwy #E3

This one bedroom co-op is in a prewar building between the F and B/Q Kings Highway stops. The apartment is described as being recently renovated with "semi-new" kitchen counters and appliances, and a new sink and cabinetry in the bathroom. The building has a live-in super. The apartment is listed for $250,000. The open house is set for Sunday, April 15th, noon-2 p.m.
