This $765,000 ground-floor Columbia Street Waterfront apartment has in-unit laundry, ceiling fans with wall-mounted controls, and double-hung windows. 


The median price for a two-bedroom apartment in Brooklyn in the fourth quarter of 2017 was $918,000, according to a recent report from Citi Habitats. But don’t give up if the number in your bank account doesn’t even come close to covering a down payment on an apartment at that price point. There are still quite a few two bedrooms on the market that are more affordable. Here are five of them.
