The new tenants signed a one-year lease, but are apparently trying to keep out of the spotlight: they declined to speak with the Journal, which did not disclose their names. “They already live in Park Slope, and they wanted more space and a garden,” a de Blasio aide tells the paper.
On the market for 12 days, the three-bedroom house had a few significant perks, among them an eat-in kitchen and a garden. Plus, it was the only full house available in the neighborhood for the price. On the other hand, the lack of an extra bathroom--there’s only one, and on the third floor at that--was a noteworthy downside.
Apparently, the place needed a lot of work before being rented out.”It’s just a lot of things that we thought from the beginning we should fix but we never got to,” de Blasio told the Journal last month. Now, it has a new dishwasher, fridge and microwave, as well as newly refinished oak floors.
