Apt. hunt: Park Slope steal, beachfront 2BR for under $2K

by -

• Here’s a sweet five-rooom floor-through that seems surprisingly affordable at $2,150 given its size, proximity to the park, and those cool moldings on the walls. The listing boasts an eat-in kitchen, a large L-shaped front room, two middle rooms and a “lovely” rear room facing south, with “old world details” all around. Those OWDs do include some distinctly anti-modern kitchen wallpaper, but who isn’t longing for a better America these days? 


• Is Bath Beach in Southern Jersey or something? How else to explain a brand new waterfront 2BR anywhere in Brooklyn for $1,695? Mob neighbors? Toxic waste? Seriously, what is it? This place has all new everything, private terrace, big rooms, all kinds of built ins. Plus, parts of The French Connection, Saturday Night Live and Welcome Back Kotter were filmed in Bath Beach. It’s two days from Williamsburg on the Path Train, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing.



• Here’s a newly renovated 2BR in Kensington for $2,400, with a cute little terrace off of the eat-in kitchen. Plus, built-in air conditioners everywhere.



• Finally, a variously listed eight-or-nine-bedroom townhouse for $10,000, shares welcome. No, it’s not super cheap but it is super awesome. Maybe you can negotiate?
