Today’s real estate highlights begin with one of the bolder renovations we’ve seen. This South Slope 3BR, a relatively affordable $3,200, comes with five flat-screen TVs and 360 degrees of glossy white tiles. The decor may not appeal to BK’s woodsier types, but throw in a club promoter, a medical student and a Russian spy and we’ll definitely come to your first house party, so long as you avoid the temptation to play only Skrillex.

• You don’t hear tons about the neighborhood of Stuyvesant Heights, which is a good thing when it comes to finding cheapish apartments. Here’s a $1,200, 700 square-foot 1BR. It cones with exclusive use of the backyard, which you might even be able to use (sans mosquitoes) by the time you move in.
• Speaking of relative deals, here’s a 1.5BR in the South Slope for $2,000 a month. Top-floor walkup (comes with stairclimbing machine!), two skylights, close to a world of yuppie amenities such as Café Grumpy, Union Market and personal training studios you won’t need anymore.
• Here’s a two-room studio on Ocean Parkway and Ditmas Ave for $1,350. That’s not so far away from Cortelyou Road, AKA suburban Smith Street. You may know Ocean Parkway from Coney Island bike trips; it’s also a great place to jog if you’re a runner who requires lots of stop lights.
• And in case any Brownstoner readers have wandered over here by accident (thanks for visiting! read this too!), here’s a 2.5BR in DUMBO for $5,900. Hubba hubba. And there’s no fee, so maybe use the money saved to add a second floor and move all your friends in.
