Looking for an apartment to rent in Ditmas Park? We’ve rounded up a few spaces available in the neighborhood to help you on your hunt.
2-Bedroom in a Victorian
Available: January 15 or February 1
Price: $2,500/month, no broker’s fee
Details: This is a first floor apartment in a private home located on Westminster Road near Cortelyou, putting you very close to the neighborhood’s most popular strip.

No pets allowed.

Prospect Park South 2-Bedroom
Available: February 1 or 15
Price: $2,200/month, plus broker’s fee
Details: Another 2-bedroom, 1-bathroom apartment in a private home. This one’s on the third floor, featuring cathedral ceilings in the main bedroom. Again, no pets allowed. Since it’s in PPS, you might not be right next to Cortelyou, but you can pick up coffee and donuts at Lark, grab dinner at Am Thai, and work it all off at Ditmas Fitness.

1.5-Bedroom Near Brooklyn College
Price: $1,650/month, plus broker’s fee
Details: Another apartment in a private home, this is a 1.5-bed, 1-bath space on the first floor. There’s a beautiful dining room, plus you get access to the front porch, a private backyard, and laundry in the basement. On Bedford near Foster, it really might only be ideal for students or faculty at Brooklyn College, though at that price, it might be a choice for anyone willing to travel a little farther to reach the neighborhood’s notable restaurants (and to reach a subway station, which are all several blocks away). Again, no pets.

1-Bedroom Near Parade Ground
Price: $1,250/month, plus broker’s fee
Details: Looks like a pretty basic 1-bed, 1-bath in a building on East 17th Street near Caton Ave. Could be the perfect fit for a commuter (just a block and a half to the express B train) who likes the outdoors (basically across the street from the Parade Ground, and three blocks to Prospect Park). Plus, it’s just a block to Church Ave and the ample shopping there. Downside is that it’s in what’s known as an Impact Zone, where police patrol more heavily because of increased crime.

Room in a Shared 2-Bedroom Near Newkirk
Price: $1,175/month, no broker’s fee
Details: If you’re looking place to share, but don’t have a potential roommate yet, check out this opening in a 2-bed, 1-bath apartment on the second floor of a private home where neighbor Kelley is looking for someone to be her roommate. There’s an in-unit washer/dryer, a porch, and pets are negotiable. Near Newkirk Plaza, which is a stop for the express B train, and the burgeoning strip of businesses along Newkirk Ave that includes Ox Cart, and soon to come Coffee Mob and Milk & Honey Cafe.
