This one-bedroom apartment at 3000 Ocean Pkwy in Brighton Beach has a new look thanks to internationally known interior designer Andres Escobar. The building also has a new name, Shorecrest Towers, having shed the Trump Village name of the complex it's a part of a few months before the current president announced his fateful campaign in 2015. Trump Village was named for Donald Trump's father, Fred, who built the seven-building, middle-income co-op and rental development in the 1960s.
The rent on this unit is now a princely-for Brighton-Beach $2,300, but there is no fee and no security deposit. The building is close to the beach, steps from the Ocean Parkway Q station, and no longer owned or managed by the Trump family, if that makes a difference to you.
The apartments in the rebranded building have been renovated and refurbished with oak flooring, GE stainless steel appliances, stone countertops and backsplashes, white cabinets, and modern lighting.
The bathroom has grey porcelain floor and wall tiles, and chrome fixtures by Danze. This apartment has a balcony, but it's not clear if it has a view of the beach or the city.
The building has a playground, parking for lease, and valet service available. There's also a gym, a 24-hour attended lobby, a live-in super, a residents' club room, and a party room with a commercial kitchen. The building allows dogs up to 20 pounds.
The boardwalk, the New York Aquarium, Asser Levy Park, and Coney Island amusements are all a short walk away. It's about an hour to Midtown via the Q train.
