Stunning Studio Near Grand Army Plaza
Available: August 10
Details: Hello, gorgeous! Sometimes “studio” seems like code for “matchbox,” but not in this wide open brownstone beauty with big windows and an original fireplace. You’ll be on President between 8th Avenue and PPW — close to the park, library, and Greenmarket, but still in a heavily residential area — plus guarantors and pets are welcome on this one (we can see from the photos a cat and dog have both been living here). The downsides? The kitchen is pretty tiny and it’s a fourth floor walkup, so you’d better start building your stamina now.

Three-Bed For Foodies & Night Owls
Details: Unlike to Listing #1, this [other gorgeous old]place will land you right in the thick of it all — you’ll be steps from all the bars, restaurants, shopping, and other services 5th Avenue has to offer. Worry not if you can’t dine out every night, though; there’s a gorgeous common area for entertaining, featuring high ceilings and one of at least two exposed brick spaces in the unit. The kitchen is larger than the last place, practical though not super contemporary, plus there’s laundry in the basement, a private storage room, and dogs are allowed on approval — but this looks like it’ll be a four-floor trek on foot, too.

Detailed Four-Bed With A Deck
Available: September 1
Details: This large place seems relatively inexpensive for our area, plus it’s chock full of moulding, beamed ceilings, and parquet floors, and it sits just a block from all the fun to be had in Prospect Park. If you’re feeling lazy or reclusive, you can easily spend some private time outdoors on your swoon-worthy roof deck, or simply sit in your living room and stare at the lush trees out the window (the apartment gets light from three sides, by the way). The kitchen’s sizable, there’s a dishwasher, you’ll have a flexible dining (or work) space — aside from the looming Methodist expansion, what’s not to love?

Oh You Know, A Whole Freakin’ Brownstone
Details: Got a big family that’s looking to spread out a bit? Tell them to start packing, because you’ll have run of the whole house, the largest kitchen yet, private outdoor space (yard and terrace), and a washer and dryer, plus all of, you know, those nice details that tend to be present in Park Slope brownstones. Also, pets are allowed, and like Listing #2, you’ll have super easy access to all the amenities on 5th.
