NYC plumbing cost. Recommendation for queens/north brooklyn plumbers?

We're doing a pre-war renovation in Jackson Heights, Queens, NYC where our co-op requires we have a plumber replace the branch piping, new valves and shower pan for both the bathroom and the branch piping/valves in the kitchen. Questions: i) Is the below cost estimate reasonable. ii) Any recommendations of pre-war savvy licensed/insured plumbers in Queens or North Brooklyn? [more inside]

Real estate agent recommendations in Manhattan/NYC?

We're thinking seriously about buying a place in Manhattan (and possibly Brooklyn). We have a fairly unique split search (one strand of which is focused on looking for a place that will lower our costs, and the other strand of which is focused on finding a place that might increase our costs a little bit). We need recommendations for honest, intelligent, and very capable real estate agents to help. [more inside]

Is it a mistake to buy an HDFC coop apartment in Brooklyn?

I'm strongly considering putting in a offer on an income-restricted HDFC coop apartment in Brooklyn. I just straddle the income limits for 2009, but am well below it for 2006, 2007, and 2008, and the agent has assured me that won't be a problem, given the board an lawyer for this building (meeting the spirit of the regulations, if not the letter). I can afford to put down a large enough down payment so my monthly costs end up being slightly less than what my rent is now (with significantly more stability in cost from year to year). So I'm pretty sure this makes sense for me, but my only question is: is this a mistake in terms of eventually reselling the place? [more inside]

Help me find a belltower to live in.

Investigating a New York City (Brooklyn) real estate fantasy: I sometimes dream of finding an odd space -- a small garage, a storefront, a storage building -- and fixing it up into livable space. I see examples around town of people who have done this. I've heard friend-of-friend stories. But I have no idea how one finds non-apartment real estate sale listings in Brooklyn (or non-new-obnoxious-condo listings, for that matter). Putting aside zoning issues and the like -- where could I start investigating? Craigslist/Streeteasy/Trulia don't seem to help.
