One of the biggest perks of living in New York City is having the ability to be close to places to dine, shop or grab a drink, plus access to transportation. This rental, 659 Prospect Pl., #D4, in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, a no-fee one bedroom for $2,195, is located near lots of those kinds of destinations.
There several transit options and two supermarkets nearby, plus bars and restaurants offering fare such as Thai, American, French-Senegalese, Trinidadian-style Chinese, and vegan. Plus, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden and Brooklyn Museum are just a few blocks away, as is Prospect Park.
The apartment, which is one of two units in this two-story, 1899 building, features hardwood floors throughout and exposed brick that is sort of whitewashed or partially stripped of white paint—it's unclear from the photos. It is asking $200 more than the median asking rent for the neighborhood, according to StreetEasy.
The living room has two large windows, a non-working fireplace in the exposed brick, and a funky light fixture.
The open kitchen looks to be in great condition, but it is small, with a handful of cabinets and drawers and a small stone counter space. It also has stainless steel appliances (including a dishwasher and built-in microwave), and a white subway tile backsplash.
You could fit a table on the wall across from the kitchen, and there is a closet between the kitchen and bedroom.
The bedroom, which fits a queen-sized bed, has exposed brick and an odd, triangle-shaped closet next to a big window that looks out onto a building. A second closet near the door looks to be a decent size.
The bath appears to be in good condition, but it is pretty small and narrow. The window in the glass-doored shower should help you feel not so claustrophobic, though. (And these tips for living with a tiny NYC bath might help, too.)
The building is pet-friendly, and Verizon Fios is available.
The apartment is close to the S, 2, 3, and 4 trains, while the A and C are 15 minutes away. The LIRR is a few blocks to the north on Nostrand and Atlantic Avenues.
