A property on Boardwalk is now going for $669,000. That's the second-most of any street in the game. But the most expensive is MARVIN GARDENS, which is one of the yellow properties, at $1,175,000.
A property on Mediterranean Avenue is now $55,000. That's actually more expensive than a property on Ventnor Avenue, which is also one of the yellows. They're GIVING away property there now, at $22,000.
A few of the other streets from the game don't have properties at all, including Park Place, which is now just the entrance to Bally's Casino.
