Sure, there are lots of Brooklyn neighborhoods that are more exciting, but we still love Park Slope. The restaurants! The brownstone-heavy streets! And yes, the park! That's one of the reasons we're drawn to this $2,300 studio, which is Brooklyn-charm personified.
You can tell by the floorplan and the photos that the space isn't exactly large, but it's got great details like a modern separate kitchen, exposed brick and, according to the listing, two skylights. All those things might make it easier to stomach the two-flight climb (plus the stairs outside).
The kitchen seems to have freezer and refrigerator drawers instead of a full-sized refrigerator—a totally useful space-saving trick, but not ideal if you like to plan meals way ahead, or are a Costco devotee.
Still, the brownstone is so very Park Slope in the best way. Note: It's a co-op building, and you'll have to get co-op board approval. And in co-ops this small, sometimes shareholders may be particular. Make sure your financials are in order before you even consider applying.
The building is about half a block from Prospect Park and a couple of blocks from the 2 and 3 trains at Grand Army Plaza, which means your trip into Manhattan would likely be direct (if you ever decide to venture out of the neighborhood, that is).
