Now that New Yorkers are spending so much more time at home, they’re craving just a bit more space to spread out. Which means small-but-central Manhattan rentals are on the down-swing, and Brooklyn is hotter than ever. Our Rental of the Week is a perfect case in point. This Boerum Hill 1BR, on a charming tree-lined street, offers brightness, space, and in-unit laundry for the price of a studio elsewhere. (Plus? Its just fun!)

Address: 467 Pacific St. #3

Price: $2,200

Size: 1-bedroom

Neighborhood: Boerum Hill

Best feature: There’s a lot to love here, but first and foremost, it has good vibes. It feels like a bright, cheerful, happy space — and with a pandemic winter fast approaching, that is crucial. On a more tangible level, check out that kitchen! This Boerum Hill 1BR has a windowed, eat-in kitchen that brings a smile to your face. It boasts stainless steel appliances, including a dishwasher, plus a washer/dryer nestled under its Caesarstone countertops. In addition, the living room sports two huge windows and original coffered ceilings. And the bedroom’s custom built-ins mean storage will never be an issue.

Why it’s a deal: The median asking rent in Boerum Hill is $2,900, according to the StreetEasy Data Dashboard. That puts our Rental of the Week at $700 per month below average for this high-demand neighborhood.

Biggest drawback: While this Boerum Hill 1BR is well appointed and comfortable, it certainly isn’t huge. The bedroom in particular seems a bit tight. In addition, the building is directly across the street from an elementary school, with a playground. So noise might be a bit of an issue.
