The nearest Train Station to 2625 Park Avenue would be the Metro North (Down Town Bridgeport). If you travel south on Park Avenue, you'll want to take a left on John Street. John Street will take you direclty to the train station. It is roughly a 7 minute drive. There is also a Bus stop on Park Avenue outside of the condo complex. You'll be able to take the city bus from there directly to the trainstation. Hope this helps!... more
Generally you are going to be on your own unless you purchased a condo or your home is in one of the few neighborhoods that have an association (usually for historic reasons). I live in Brooklawn and we have one (mandatory) but I don't think there is one near St Vincent.... more
I would say that right now the recovery and improving market is not across the board. Some areas are doing amazingly well and others have yet to catch up. I think this is typical of real estate cycles. "Blue chip" locations don't drop down as far and are the first to recover. It takes longer for the recovery to spread to other communities. It does eventually happen as buyers are priced out of the more expensive towns and neighborhoods.

This home is not listed for rent in the MLS. It was listed for sale, until July 19, 2013. Always beware of handing over money, especially if asked for in cash.

Be especially careful if they want you to send the money out of state.
Do you know it doesn't cost the renter to use a Realtor? The landlord pays the fee when the listing is listed on the MLS. Typically, my experience has shown me, that homes listed on the MLS for rent are in better condition with landlords who are serious about their investment. It's a little more of a process to rent this way but you are better protected from scams. You will have to fill out a rental application, credit check, landlord should do a reference check, and then you meet the landlord and if all is in good shape, you get the rent. It's a safer process. Money gets turned over at lease signing and at least one Realtor is involved, usually two. The agent who lists the rental should make sure that the person really owns the home so you are so much less likely to be scammed.... more
Have you contacted a Real Estate Agent yet? Some landlords don't interact with potential renters until a lease is signed or have property managers or management companies speak with possible tenants. If you'd like, give me a call and as your Realtor I will see what we can accomplish. My cell is 203-996-5363... more
