Instead of boarding up an unoccupied luxury condo in Crown Heights and letting it fall into disrepair, the owner has done the unthinkable: arranged to let homeless people live there. The new apartments, which were originally priced up to $350,000, seem pretty nice; one resident who moved in with his wife and two young daughters tells the Daily News, “When I first saw it, I was like, ‘Damn, everything is brand new.’ It has marble counters and marble floors in the bathrooms, too. I like the big kitchen. That’s my favorite.” Another new resident, an out-of-work truck driver from Miami who’s living with his teenage son, crows, “The closet in the main room is so big you could put a twin bed in there.”
