This is an older question, but I wanted to note that there are some really great listings right now in the McLean Gardens/Cathedral/AU area! If you're not already working with an agent and want to purchase in this area, check out my profile page. I've been touring all the available condos and co ops and have been successful in securing some great properties for my buyer clients. Also, if you're not familiar with co ops and would like some information, feel free to ask me. This is a terrific location and I'd be happy to take you through it.
