Some New Yorkers dream of scoring a rent-stabilized apartment. Some fantasize about living in a beautiful, historic building. Still others long for the perfect neighborhood, with convenience and amenities and charm to spare. If you dare to dream of all three at once, have we got a Rental of the Week for you! This Brooklyn Heights 1BR has all that and more, at a price that’s a significant bargain for the area.

Address: 260 Hicks St. #3

Price: $2,000

Size: 1-bedroom

Neighborhood: Brooklyn Heights

Best feature: Location, location, location! This Brooklyn Heights 1BR is on the corner of Hicks and Joralemon streets, surrounded by trees and gorgeous, historic architecture. And we do mean that literally — the bedroom’s curved triple window spans the actual corner. It’s a unique detail in a unique building, which dates back to 1900. And it’s exactly the kind of thing that makes this one of NYC’s most beloved neighborhoods.

In addition, both the living room and bedroom are nicely sized and flooded with sunshine. So they feel bright, open, and spacious. The kitchen has a breakfast bar that opens up that space as well. (It also provides a handy place to work from home.) The original hardwoods are refinished, the windows are new, and the kitchen and bath are both renovated.

Besides being beautiful, our Rental of the Week is also convenient. You’re right near multiple subway lines and green spaces, including the famous Promenade. It’s very close to Brooklyn Bridge Park and the piers. And, heads up Beastie Boys fans, Adam Yauch Park is also just a few blocks away.

Why it’s a deal: The median asking rent in Brooklyn Heights is $2,700, according to the StreetEasy Data Dashboard. That puts our Rental of the Week at whopping $700 per month below average for the neighborhood. This place would be an incredible deal even if it wasn’t rent-stabilized! That’s just icing on the cake.

Biggest drawback: This Brooklyn Heights 1BR is a first-floor unit. It is raised up and set back a bit from the street, so pedestrians can’t just peer right in. But still, that might not be for everyone. In addition, the kitchen is updated but certainly not luxe. So if you’re an avid cook, this setup probably won’t cut it for you.
