    Oh hey there The Crook!

      It’s absurd they name these places. Most people probably wouldn’t look at this building and say “wow, a nice condo building!” Anything less than 10 units does not need a name…
      Also, what did this unit sell for?

    • DC_KT

      We can only assume that refers to the landlord?

        I think they are pointing to the sign that looks like it says “The Crook” instead of “The Rook”.

          D’oh! Beat me to it!!

        I think it refers to the sign in front of the building in the photo — it’s supposed to say “the rook” and has a chess piece drawn next to it, but the way the lines/letters are placed, it looks like “the crook.”

    Guess this person has never had noise or smoke coming from an adjacent row house. While not as bad usually as from neighbors in the same building who share (usually) thinner walls, I would just point out that this unit shares walls with neighbors on either side in the adjacent buildings.

      No one above is nice, but they obviously share walls one way or another.

        I’m thinking that maybe there’s a staircase in the middle of the building… but that would only prevent the unit from sharing walls with a neighbor within the same building. It would still be sharing walls with the adjacent rowhouse… and the rowhouse on the left looks to be under construction!

    What a weirdly small and awkward layout for 2400 bucks. And you don’t even get to own it. And it’s in Logan? Or, as real estate agents desperately called it 5 years ago, “Dupont East.” Pshaw real estate bubbles.

    No shared walls – so magic???

    No share walls because it’s the entire top floor
