One Spacious Bedroom in Gravesend
Location: 82nd Street and Bay Parkway
Description: Even if this realtor is playing a camera trick, this apartment is still pretty big. The living room is big and the wood floors have all been renovated. And all of the doorways seem to have this arabesque shape to them, giving the apartment an interesting vibe.

Three Bedrooms in Bensonhurst
Location: 80th Street and 21st Avenue
Description: In the words of the realtor: “This is it!” Behold, an apartment that is bigger than two bedrooms. This selling point of the realtor leaves much to be desired. Do any of the bedrooms get any light? Will I be given a lollipop before or after the apartment viewing?

One Bedroom in Dyker Heights
Location: 13th Avenue
Description: Located above a store, this apartment has a new kitchen with lots of counter space. A washer and dryer are included, and the tiles in the bathroom are new. Oh, and it’s also FIOS ready, which I’m jealous of because I’ve been calling FIOS for over a year and they still haven’t made it out to my corner of Southern Brooklyn. Whatever.
