Pre-War One Bedroom on Beverley
Details: This apartment at 1803 Beverley Road looks like it gets a ton of light, and we’re loving the hardwood floors. The stainless steel kitchen is nice – but it definitely looks tight and doesn’t seem to have too much to space to chop all those veggies that you can buy from the three farmers’ markets near you (Cortelyou, Flatbush, and outside the Q at Parkside). There’s an elevator in the building – which is good, considering you’d be on the fifth floor. You’re within walking distance of the shops and restaurants on Cortelyou Road, Church Avenue, and Flatbush Avenue, and the Q train is a hop, skip, and a jump away. And, if you have a pet, they’re welcome.

Two Bedroom in a Victorian
Details: This apartment has two bedrooms, one bathroom, heat and electronic included – and, if have a well behaved dog or cat? They might be allowed to come with you – but apparently no guarantees (and you’ll have to shell out more cash for an additional deposit). At approximately 1,100 square feet, this place has room to stretch. There are high ceilings, big windows, an eat-in kitchen, a dining room and “plenty of closet space,” though we’re not sure what that entails. In the kitchen, there’s a dishwasher and microwave, and the apartment comes with a brand new front porch with exclusive use and a shared private backyard. There’s a coin-operated washer and dryer in the basement. It doesn’t give the exact address, which, sigh, but the listing does say you’d be just a few blocks from the Q and B trains at Newkirk Avenue.

Modern Three (and a half) Bedroom
Details: This place looks huge – and if you’ve ever wanted an insanely long hallway, this looks like your dream. There’s a modern kitchen with granite countertops, a dishwasher, two separate entrances, and hardwood floors. And, there’s two bathrooms! It doesn’t give an exact address, but the listing does say you’re closest (0.3 miles) to the Beverley subway station. You’d be about 0.4 miles from both the subways at Cortelyou and Church – which means you’re also within walking distances of all the shops and restaurants on both of those streets.

Four Bedroom Near the Parade Grounds
Details: The photos are not the greatest on this listing, but the chance to split the $2,995 rent four ways definitely makes life more affordable. The apartment is located on Caton Avenue near East 17 Street – right by Prospect Park, which, we probably don’t need to point out is a huge plus. You’re a stone’s throw from the shops and restaurants on Church Avenue and about a 15 minute walk to Cortelyou Road. The Caton Avenue exit of the Church Avenue Q/B station is one block away. The area has had its issues with crime, but, as someone who lives near there, I can tell you I love it. A heads up – it can be a lively area, so if you’re looking for a ton of peace and quiet, this probably isn’t your best bet.
