Real estate roundup: Affordable studio living in style

Living in the city is a practice in patience and sacrifice of personal space. But your apartment doesn’t have to be. In today’s roundup from our real estate section, we’ll show you some awesome cheap studio sanctuaries currently on the market. We all know sharing with roommates is the cheapest option, but can you really put a price on a judgement/compromise free and clothing optional existence? For $950/month in Prospect Lefferts Gardens you won’t have to worry about burning the place down with a hotplate in this roomy and bright studio with full recessed kitchen.

•  Only $900/month for this Sheepshead Bay walk in studio. Sure the wood paneling is a little outdated, but that awesome reindeer bust  you found at a stoop sale would be the perfect focal point for a “lodge” themed decorating scheme.


•  At $1595, this Clinton Hill studio is better suited for a couple or gainful single. It’s not clear where that sweet spiral staircase ascends to (or descends from) but it looks like it may be a loft for a sleeping area, which leaves a beautiful downstairs space with exposed brick and hardwood floors for entertaining.


•  Hey artists, check out this bright, beautiful, spacious loft space in Red Hook. It’s $1800/month, but if you gave up your shared working space and lived where you work you’d save some dough and can paint all day in your birthday suit. Baby Grand not included, but dishwasher and in-building laundry are.
