rental roundup 8-1

One Bedroom With Exposed Brick
Available: Immediately
Price: $1,400
Details: We’re loving the exposed brick and the big windows in this apartment at 505 East 22nd Street. The listing says the kitchen is large – but, uh, are we going crazy or does it look like there’s not much space all for cooking? Also, it looks like there’s no elevator in the building – and you’re on the fifth floor. Still, there are those pretty bay windows in the bedroom and hardwoord floors , and you’re a tree-lined 15 minute walk from the shops and restaurants on Cortelyou Road.

Two Bedroom on Rugby Road
Available: Immediately
Price: $2,300
Details: This two bedroom, one bath apartment at 400 Rugby Road looks spacious (and has lots of room for bookshelves and cooking, hooray!), though we wish there were more pictures. The living room looks like it could be a little dark, but the one bedroom pictured looks like it gets a good amount of sunlight. Plus, the listing says the kitchen and bathroom have just been renovated, and the building has a part-time doorman, a dishwasher, indoor parking, laundry, and an onsite super. You’re not far from the Cortelyou Road Q train, as well as the shops and dining on Cortelyou.

Three Bedroom on Second Floor of a House
Available: Immediately
Price: $3,650
Details: What do people think of this price? It’s not something we’d ever be able to afford, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t look really lovely (definitely just killed my inner English teacher with that double negative). You’ll be on the second floor of a home on East 19th (the listing doesn’t give an exact address, though it does specify you’ll be close to both the Cortelyou and Beverley Road subway stations), and there’s a washer and dryer in your apartment, a newly renovated kitchen with a dishwasher, and hardwood floors. Plus, there’s a private porch and access to a large backyard with off-street parking for one car. Utilities are included.

Four Bedroom With Upgraded Kitchen
 If you’re able to split this among four roommates, that means $643.75 each month per person – which doesn’t sound too shabby to us. There are not many photos accompanying the listing (and none of the bedrooms), which, sigh, but the living room has nice looking hardwood floors and appears to be pretty spacious. Pets are allowed, there’s a washer and dryer in the building, and you’re close to the Q subway station at Cortelyou.

  1. i always see that apt for rent in the “Four Bedroom With Upgraded Kitchen”post with the stupid diamond brick thing. Pretty sure its around 22nd.

  2. The three bedroom on the top floor of the house is 251 East 19th Street next door to me. And it has been listed on Craigslist for $100 less for the last few weeks.
