Rental pick of the week

A Bed-Stuy two bedroom with central air to cool you off

The two bedroom is having an open house today but you have to call to set an appointment.


On a steamy day like today, in the middle of a July heat wave, central air is very appealing and rather also rare for a NYC rental, but this two-bedroom Bedford-Stuyvesant apartment, 869 Park Ave., #4D, has central air (and central heat, for when winter rolls around again). It is asking $2,600, and there’s no broker’s fee. It is available for viewing today by appointment only.

Renters have access to several building amenities, including a 24-hour gym, bike storage, package room, backyard, and roof deck.

The apartment has floor-to-ceiling windows, hardwood flooring, and a balcony.

The kitchen (which is not pictured) has a dishwasher, stainless steel appliances, and custom cabinetry.

Bedrooms have closets and floor-to-ceiling windows.

There's a tub in the bathroom.

The gym faces the backyard.

Here's a view of the lobby.

Gas and hot water is included in the rent, and guarantors are accepted; cats and dogs are allowed on approval. There’s laundry and storage in the building, which is Verizon Fios enabled.

The building is across the street from NYCHA’s Sumner Houses, and the apartment is two blocks to the J and M trains; the L train at Montrose Avenue is also nearby.
