THE BKOOKLYjS, DAILY EAOTJS. NEW YOBK, 8ATTTEDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 1901 15 ore Confidence Expressed in President Roosevelt. Recovery and Advance in Business Has Been General in the Past Few Days. Notwithstanding the nation's week of mourning and the comparative quiet that has pervaded every branch o trade throughout the land, the realty market of Brooklyn is in a better and more hopeful condition than It has been in two years. The confidence manifested by the great interests of the country in the future policy of President Roosevelt's administration along the lines that have made for prosperity for four years has been given expression to in every direction. The momentary upsettirjg of values which occurred when the news that President McKinley had been shot may be set down simply as the result of the great shock every person in the country experienced at so inconceivable a crime. The immediate recovery and the steady advance made since that memorable day has been general in every branch of business and made sure by the positive manner in which President Roosevelt has stated his policy. Two weeks ago a positive check was given TYPE 03? TWO STOBY to the real estate market throughout the City of New York. For. a week following scarcely a new venture was progressed and many plans were considered for the curtailment of improvements then under way. The uncertainty was putting a damper upon all investments, and real estate would have felt the condition more' keenly than any other holding. But when the moneyed men of the country stood together for the integrity of the country's future, checking every attempt to create a panic in the money and investment centers, the men engaged in the real estate trade could do naught but follow their lead, and their confidence has been completely restored. The result is that developments in Brooklyn may be said to have rested for two weeks. During this period the trade has taken on even greater hope and strength, until the future has the most promising of outlooks.

Jery Donovan, EAST THIRTEENTH STREET, west side, 700 week day, Sunday and holiday a condition which, however, cannot be regarded as other than creditable the real estate trade of Brooklyn, probably without an exception, observed the day of mourning upon which 'President McKinley was buried, and business was Lrought to a complete standstill. Probably, too, there was not a rjal estate office in Brooklyn that did not show some evidence of the nation's mourning during the week. The sales market is dull. That is a condition none can deny at the moment. It is the natural consequence of the temporary financial timidity. But the interval has been taken advantage of by many house seekers to look about and show the earnestness of their interest by the inquiries they make. Much seed has been planted that will bring an early harvest of sales, and several large builders report that they will soon begin operations on a large scale in as many parts of the borough. Just now the two story and basement, one and two family houses are in great demand. In fact, the demand is far greater than the supply, and the recent permits issued by the Department of Build - AND BASEMENT PRIVATE HOUSE ings give this style of construction particular prominence. There has also developed a considerable demand for fine three story and basement private houses of the best character of construction. In some of the uptown neighborhoods scarcely a house of this description is vacant, and in the Hancock, Stuyvesant, Bedford and St. Marks sections the renting business has been the best yet experienced. While that part of Brooklyn has always been considered as choice residential territory, yet the improvements made in transit facilities have done much to bring them into greater prominence. In tho building branch of the trade the tenement or apartment house has practically gone out of fashion so far as the builders are concerned and the Department of Buildings has not issued a half dozen permits since the middle of April. This Is due entirely to the new tenement house laws, which practically puts this class of construc - feet south of Fteverley road, one two story and attic frame, 2Sx2S, one family, tin roof; cost $4,500.

But the builders who secured their permits for apartment houses Detore the enactment of the present jaws, and who have begun work within the prescribed time limits, see zreat returns ahead of them for their ventures. Tho demand for apartments is constantly growing. Few desirable apartments are unoccupied. The flumoTfl nf rtlrt nnn t man hnflri1ni?R &TB final ly realizing the benefits of improvements and are placing their properties in such shape as to obtain larger rentals than ever. In short, this branch of the renting market Is growing so rapidly that brokers are at their wits ends sometimes to secure aesiraoie quarters for their clients. One of the consequences of this is the popularity ot the two family detached or semi - detached house in the outlying wards, which are goiag up very rapidly, particularly in the Twenty - ninth and Thirtieth Wards. The appointment of the commission for the condemnation of the land to be taken in the opening of Bedford avenue south of the Eastern parkway is the first step In what will be a great development along the line of that thoroughfare. This section of Btreet was the missing link in tho chain of direct communication between Greenpolnt and the Thirty - second Ward. The as yet unopened section follows a line through the center of a large district that is destined to be one of the finest residential sections of Brooklyn. Bedford avenue will be a fine driveway. On the west is Frospect Park; on the north, Eastern parkway; to the south are the fine Midwood and Vanderveer Park settlements, while on the east the land is held in strong hands awaiting the beginning of the movement that means the making of the Eastern parkway the center of a wide area of handsome homes. All around this public improve - IN DEG3JAW STREET. ment are features of city life that should make the high' ridge running east from Prospect Park very attractive for men who can afford to build homes on large plots and to beautify their surroundings. TYPES OF TWO FAMILY HOUSE. Popular Development of the Marks District That Proves an Excellent Investment. St. Many builders have been attracted during the last two or three years to that section of Brooklyn lying between Atlantic avenue and Eastern Parkway, part of which is called the St. Marks district. Its high ground and general accessibility from almost every other part of Brooklyn presented a field for operators that has proven more or less of a gold mine. More new buildings have been erected there in the last few years than in any other of the older wards of Brooklyn, and a type of house has been built in large numbers that appeals successfully to the renting population. These are what are known as the two family houses. They are particularly attractive to people who desire comparatively small apartments, but who object to living in flats, and they appeal to this class on account of their being more quiet and, possibly, more exclusive. Among the best examples of these houses are those recently built by the Anglo - American Savings and Loan Company, in St. John's place and Degraw street, between Nostrand and New York avenues. These houses are of a better class of construction, being finished throughout in selected hard wood and containing two complete sets of Improvements, such as tiled bath rooms and open plumbing. Some of these houses are three story and basement, with seven rooms and bath in both upper and lower parts, and others are two stories and basement, with five rooms and bath on second floor. The seven room apartments rent for 535 a month and the five room apartments for $25. Ernestus Gulick, of Fulton street and Bedford avenue, who Is the agent for these houses, said: "We could rent hundreds of these houses if they were to be had. On the first of May, when we took charge of this property, out of about twenty houses, half of them were vacant. But since then we have rented all of them, which is the best evidence - of their desirability. Such houses are also an excellent investment, as they rent finjr.

The expense of carrying, however, is more than the private house, as it is necessary to furnish heat and Janitor service, the same as in apartment houses. Now that the new tenement house law is in force, practically preventing the erection of any more large apartment houses, we are in hopes that build - .ers will direct their attention to this class of houses, as they certainly are the most profitable form of building investment that is now in sight in Brooklyn." FINE INVESTMENT PROPERTIES. Hundreds of Apartments in Brooklyn Show Larger Returns Than Similar Manhattan Property. As a field for investment the real estate market in Brooklyn is probably unequalled in any direction. The many advantages already at hand, and the early prospects ot greatly increased facilities should of themselves be convincing arguments for the out of town Investor. And when to these can be added the relatively low price of property, compared with similar development in Manhattan aDd the Bronx, and the higher percentage of return on investments obtained in Brooklyn, it may be said to rest entirely with the property owners of Brooklyn to explain why more outsiders are not brought across the East River to become property holders here. In a talk on this subject with Leonard Moody, the well known real estate operator, he said: "I canot understand why men ot capital, who are heavy Investors in real estate, and who have generally made money from their ventures, should confine their attention to Manhattan and the Bronx. I speak more particularly now of the aDartment house properties. Where in the City of New York can you go and find anything to equal the opportunities in this direction offered in Brooklyn. There are a number of aoartment properties in this borough equal to any of like character to be found in Manhattan and the Bronx, where the returns are materially greater, on the amount invested, than can be obtained across the river. Many of these structures are still held by their builders, who have been satisfied to wait for the change in the real estate market and who in the meantime have been drawing a large percentage of profit or revenue from their outlay "As an example of the class of property I refer to I will cite the apartments at the corner ot Lafayette avenue and Ryerson street. There are three large double buildings, containing twenty - four roomy, light and airy apartments, not one of which is empty nor have they been since their completiou, about eignt years ago. The character of this neighborhood is well known to Brooklynites as splendid in every particular, convenient to churches, schools, places of amusement and business centers, and not three miles away from the City Hall in Manhattan. It is, as I say, only an example of many, and will do to illustrate my contention that this class of property should be very attractive to the real estate Investor. Apartments in such hulldlnes rent from S3f) tn isn a mnti, they are in active demand. "Now, take similarly located and appointed apartments In Manhattan. What, in the first place, is the cost of the land upon which they are built? We know that it is not less than six times as much as in Brooklyn. The cost of construction is practically the same. And then comes the question of rents. An apartment that brings $600 a year in Brooklyn cannot be rented for less than $1,200 in Manhattan to give a return of even less than 4 per cent., while the return here is very much higher. In short, the difference in cost between Manhattan and Brooklyn practically represents the difference in return in ravor of this borough. "But you cannot get snch apartments in Manhattan. You must go to the Bronx. Compare the usually comfortable half hour's ride to the New York City Hall from the Hill section with the hour or more of strap hanging and Jammed cars across the river In reaching the Bronx. I need not enlarge upon that phase of the question. It has been too long before Manhattanites to need repeating. That this difference Is being realized is shown by the number of families who are coming to Brooklyn from Harlem and tho Bronx every month. They are reversing the usual condition of the realty trade. The tenants are preceding the Investors and Brooklyn Is reaping the benefit, while the tenants live better and at less cost. "Another feature of this class of Investment, and one of the most serious, is presented by the new tenement house law, which makes this class of construction practically impossible. Consequently, the old apartment house will grow more and more valuable as the years go on, provided, always, of course, it is kept In good condition. Under the new law it will cost from 30 to 40 per cent, more to build an apartment than it did a year ago. This means that an equal advance tn rentals will have to be made to secure like returns on the money invested. But the present apartments will cost no more and the returns are bound to be higher as the demand for them increases. It only requires a little Investigation and thought on the part of a man with money to understand Just what this opportunity is, and I cannot understand why the men who give this class of property so much attention in Manhattan do not come to Brooklyn where the returns are much higher." NEW HOUSES IN PARK CIRCLE. Latest Development on the Park Slope Cuts Off the View - of Owners in Sportsmen's Bow. There is fast approaching completion a row of four white stone front houses on a plot of land facing Park Circle, between Flathush avenue and the Montauk Club, which some residents of the immediate neighborhood have thoughtlessly christened "Spite Row." The plot on which these houses are erected is about 80 feet wide, about 100 feet in depth and runs from Eighth avenue to tho Park Circle. It is directly opposite the row of handsome four story and basement brown stone front houses on the west side of Eighth avenue that a few years ago was popularly known as "Sportsmen's Row," from the fact that the Dwyer Brothers, the well known horsemen, and others, took up their residences there.

But it afforded the residents of "Sportsmen's Row" a fine outlook into the park plaza, which they probably supposed would remain indefinitely. But through a change o ownership the vacant plot came into possession of an investor who had no intention of seeing a valuable holding resting idle as the view front of his neighbors, and he prepared plans for the erection of the row shown in the illustration. At once there was a fight as to which way the houses wero to be faced. The owner held that he had the right to use his property as he saw fit, while the owners of "Sportsmen's Row" contended that certain restrictions forbade the facing of the houses on Park Circle, leaving the rear of the houses and backyards the only ornamental view for them. The courts were invoked and the present owner won, with the result that the Park Circle on the west side will have as its last present improvement a row of four fine up to date houses that will be infinitely more ornamental than the vacant lot that was used as a quick cut across from the Riding and Driving Club. The second of this row of houses from the left has just been sold to W. B. Lewis, by A. Peace & Son of 335 Flatbush avenue, for about $25,000. The houses are handsome in every appointment and are up to tho best character of improvements on the Park Slope. ACTIVITY IN OUTER WARDS. It has been demonstrated that high grade improvements in the outlying wards ot Brooklyn make better returns than almost any other kind o property in this borough, for they attract people who are willing to pay good prices for homes surrounded by elegance and which are appointed with all the conveniences of city life. This has been noticeable in Prospect Park South from the start of this enterprise by Dean Alvord.

Ernestus Gulick's Estimate of th Realty Market and the Demand for Accommodations. Through the handling of many varieties of property and a close study of conditions governing; the real estate market in Brooklyn during the last decade Ernestus Gulick has obtained a very comprehensive knowledge of the trade and although his talks on this subject have always been more or less conservative what he has to say is generally close to facts. When asked his opinion of the future of the market Mr. Gulick said: "There has been a very considerable change in the Brooklyn real estate situation during the past year. The sale market just now is comparatively quiet, but it is a firm one and. one from which much business will develop. The formation of a new real estate company in Brooklyn with several millions of dollars in capital, composed of strong men well known in investment fields, has already given much strength to the trade. When this corporation begins real active work along tho line of its policy that is. buying well located and developed properties to bold them for a rise, a rettt impetus will be given to tlm Meut'ral trade. Even now we seldom hear ot properties being sold for very much less than their a.'iual values. Owners will not accept less than what they consider their property to be w orth, and are holding it iu anticipation of belter time. - ,', which will come without ilonbt. "The demand for houses and apartmeuts for rent is Ki - adily incn - asir.g as the fall season proi:res, - s. Uruolilyu is becoming largely a Imi - .hisIi .;f r. - n.M homes. The new tenement, or ap,, it house iu.v, which is practically prohibitive iu its operation at present, is crea.ii.u a scarcity of apartments and uius it.eri a. - :::::; a demand tor private houses of class. We are renting all our auuruneius two family houses with apartment scriro in the liedforil section as fast as we can put them h: proper condition to attract tenants. Tim lied lord and St. .Marks ilistriits are becoming more and more popular as poepio discover and understand the superior accummedat ions offered there, and at figures that are agreed upon as moderate. These sections of Hrouklyn are now enjoying real rapid tram - it, the Manhattan cad of the bridge being only fifteen minutes freai the lledford station of the Kings Coun - iy i'lrvaiod itailroad. ttnd the trolley cars rea. iiii.g io all parts of Brooklyn under quite shun headway. "lint an increased interest in real estate matter is shown in many ways:. The new law passed by the last Legislature affecting sales and loans negotiated through real estate brokers and agents has already engaged tile attention of people, although, in my opinion, it is of no possible benelU to any one. The press has also taken up the subject of real estate, ai d the efforts of the Eagle in calling atfenib.'ii to the advantages of the Borough of Brooklyn as :i place of residvuico through its articles bearing upon that ques - tiuii has attracted considera hie attention r.Sroad and itas done a groat of good, 't he general prospects feir the preBer.t season and for the future are very favorable. The upward movement which was !..miid to follow tiie long pencil of decline and comparative low prices extenditig over the las: two or throe years itas begun and I tint icipate an active and strong market, in every hiaitch of til - trade in a very short time. There is no reason why Brooklyn should not he the favored place of residence in tiie greater City of Xew York, ami I believe that we will not have to live long to see this a fact. Tho population is growing more rapidly than wo havo any idea, new families are coming here from month lo month, and while no exodus may be looked for, yet. 1 firmly believe that the advantages offered in Brooklyn us a place of residence are forming more of a topic of"" interest among those who love a comfortable home than any iU"siiou affecting the economy of domestic life."
