Will You Be My Neighbor, Mr. Borough President?


At the ripe old age of 64, Brooklyn borough president Marty Markowitz has finally become a man – at least in real estate terms.

On November 30, Markowitz and his wife, Jamie, bought their first home for $1.45 million on a tree-lined, Windsor Terrace street, just one block from Prospect Park. "I've always been a tenant, all my life. This is the first time I'm a property owner," Markowitz told The New York Daily News.
