Room in a four-bedroom
Not bad, for under $1K. Unit looks spick and span, with some nicely filled bookshelves and two full bathrooms. The kitchen has a tiny sliver of counter space in the photos, fingers crossed there’s more space behind the photographer.
An array of opportunities
Room in a four-bedroom
This post has multiple options: the above listed rent for a “smaller room”, or $1,100/month for one of two larger rooms. This unit has a skylight, central AC, a backyard and a basement. Goddamn.
For the area, this price is really pretty decent, especially considering the listing asserts the unit is on the Park Slope border. The kitchen is funky, the bathroom seems clean, there’s a brokers fee and laundry in the basement.
Nice red cabinets, although they clash with the giant orange wall adjacent to the roof. Unclear what’s going on with all the wires in the bedroom.
In some ways, a studio is better than a railroad flat
Prospect Lefferts Gardens
A fourth-floor walk up with a very enthusiastic listing description and a sufficiently clean looking bathroom, this unit is well priced for the area. The fridge looks a little lonely in the middle of the room, but the layout otherwise seems decent, and there even appears to be a small lobby-like area next to the front entrance.
Times they are a changin’
Damn, studios are now going for this much in East Flatbush? Anyway, it’s a two room studio with what looks like a recently renovated kitchen, a good amount of closet space and one full bath. It’s also apparently 500 feet from the 2 and 5 trains.
Sunlight, you made it in!
Woah, fish eye broker shots! Cute details in this one, nice hardwood floors and plenty of space, especially for that price. The kitchen is itty bitty and the fridge is in a different part of the apartment.
The photos on this listing are all conveniently labeled with their pictured desirable characteristics. It’s a co-op building, and the unit is pretty damn big for a studio (it even includes a foyer – bougie).
