Apartment Hunt: ‘Comparable Units’ edition

timthumb

Barring any puns about all the ‘comparable units’ coming up this weekend, many of the apartments in this week’s roundup are part of buildings that have multiple listings. It’s no biggie, but it does mean that you should head over there to make sure you’re getting exactly what you see in the pictures. Especially if you’re planning on working from home.

Can’t kvetch about a 3-bedroom with 2 full bathrooms. Especially this one in Bed-Stuy, which is a pretty sweet grab at $2,595. Granite countertops, hardwood flooring and right close to the A train at Utica Av. Supposedly it even lays claim to a “bonus room!” Some would call this a living room, but we’re choosing to believe there’s actually something next-level about it. Perhaps even literally, since the place is an “upper duplex.”

Speaking of comparable units, all the pictures from this 2-bedroom for $1,820 in Greenwood Heights are from a comparable unit in the building. Still, now that you know how the neighbors decorate, you can make sure you don’t put a Brooklyn Brewery flag in your bedroom, because that would just be embarrassing. It’s definitely not the “short walk to Park Slope” that it’s being advertised as, but who cares? Greenwood Heights is a great place to live too.

How about a pre-war 3-bedroom in Bed-Stuy? Yeah, I thought so. Boasting bay windows that make for some serious wistful days spent looking out at the rain, this $2,900 apartment also hooks you up with a fancy stainless kitchen and a ‘decorated skylight’! Not to mention, it’s right across from a kids’ playground behind the elementary school, which really makes for happy-funtime feels all round. Off the Utica A.

Okay, so technically this $2,200 spot is only 2.5 bedrooms. But that still leaves you at under $1k apiece if you divvy up the rooms using like, math and stuff! The apartment, located on trendy Putnam Ave., mixes old-timey charm with amenities like an ‘electric’ skylight (oh, as opposed to decorated) and ample storage space. It’s close to all those cute little Bed-Stuy parkettes you always walk past and wonder about, right between the Kingston-Throop and Utica Av. A/C lines.

You know you’re a real estate lemming when you actually understand a listing title that just reads “awesome 3Br with W/D and DW!”. But yeah, this 3-bedroom in Bushwick has a washer-dryer and dishwasher. And yeah, the photos show you all the exposed brick your gentrified little heart could possibly desire. Let’s not forget your own backyard, any pets you want to keep house with, and proximity to the L/M at Myrtle-Wyckoff.  Downsides? None that we can see, but it seems to be re-listed substituting the adjective “Terrific” in the title, so we’d recommend seeing exactly what you’re getting by going in to see it.

Last on the docket today, we’ve got a no-fee for you! This lovely 3-bedroom for $2,400 off the Nostrand Av. 3 is pre-war, allows pets and sits just a couple of blocks from The Brooklyn Children’s Museum. No kids? No problem. It’s also in the heart of bar-riddled Crown Heights proper. Happy moving!
