Small Wonder

What this $2,300 Park Slope studio lacks in space, it makes up for in charm

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).

More exposed brick!

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).
