The Price: $627,000
The median asking price for a home in Bushwick was $1.1 million this October, according to the StreetEasy Data Dashboard. That means our Deal of the Week is priced just above half the median asking price for the neighborhood!

Why You’ll Love It…
Upon entering this apartment, you’ll be greeted by polished concrete floors and floor-to-ceiling windows with black trim, which let in tons of light from the southwest. With over 600 square feet of space, there’s ample room in the living area for a small dining set and some living room furniture. There’s even more seating in the kitchen, which features a large island with enough room for three barstools. It also offers plenty of space for prepping food, and contains a deep sink and stainless steel dishwasher!
The oversized windows in the living area also include a door that leads out to the 60-square-foot balcony. This space is the perfect size for a couple of chairs for enjoying your morning coffee, or spreading out a yoga mat for some outdoor exercise. Back inside, the bedroom features an oversized window as well, in addition to a double-wide closet.
Speaking of closets, there are two right outside the bathroom. One of these closets contains the unit’s holy grail: the combination washer/dryer. With both a dishwasher and washing machine, you’ll be the envy of all your New York friends. The bathroom is outfitted with white subway tile, a spacious vanity, and a medicine cabinet.
Because this is a fairly new building, it offers great amenities both in and outside the unit. These include central A/C and heat, a bike room, a common roof deck, and an elevator. There also are parking spaces available to purchase, and pets are allowed. Location-wise, the building is near both the J/Z and M trains, plus lots of cafes, bars, restaurants, and shops, including L Train Vintage and a local bookstore.
…And Why You Might Not
At 627 square feet, the unit is on the spacious side by New York standards, but still might be considered small for some. The nearby subway lines are limited and the closest L train station is nearly a mile away, so it may not work for everyone’s commute. Lastly, not everyone loves the look and feel of a newer building — although central A/C, in-unit laundry, and an elevator certainly never hurt.
