We love an old-school, vintage-feeling New York City apartment as much as anyone, but there’s definitely something to be said for updated units with all the bells and whistles. Our Deal of the Week, 101 Linden St. #4A, is a 2-bedroom in the heart of Bushwick in a 1930s building with some 2020s updates. From the electric fireplace to the custom closets to the in-unit laundry, this place has everything you could ask for and then some.

The Price: $495,000

The median asking price for a home in Bushwick was $1.2 million this April, according to the StreetEasy Data Dashboard. That means our Deal of the Week is priced below half the median asking price for the neighborhood!

Buyers who put down the 20% minimum down payment of $99,000 can expect to see monthly payments of $3,294. This includes a mortgage payment of $2,592 and maintenance fees of $702 — not bad by NYC standards.

Why You’ll Love It…

Enter this top-floor unit into an open living area featuring smoked oak wood flooring, recessed lighting, and floor-to-ceiling built-ins perfect for your books, board games, plants, or knick-knacks. The piece-de-resistance is the electric fireplace, which is not only gorgeous, but is also fully functional! Large windows let tons of light into this room, which flows directly into the kitchen.

The chef’s kitchen has been updated with everything you need, including GE and Haier appliances (like a dishwasher), a WaterDrop 2-stage Reverse Osmosis drinking water system, and premium quartz countertops. There’s also plenty of cabinetry for storage, complete with soft-touch doors.

This apartment is a true 2-bedroom, meaning both of its bedrooms have a window and a closet. They’re also both fairly large and can fit a good amount of furniture in addition to a bed. We also have to talk about the bathroom, which has a bathtub/shower combo with jets, stainless steel dual showerheads, and a frameless shower door. A closet in the hallway conceals the unit’s crown jewel: the vented washer and dryer!

Located in a 23-unit building, this apartment has its own storage unit in the basement. Plus, the co-op is pet-friendly and has a live-in super. The J and Z trains stop just a couple of blocks away and there are plenty of supermarkets, delis, and shops nearby.

…And Why You Might Not

Unfortunately, this unit is a fourth-floor walkup (but at least you won’t have to worry about your upstairs neighbors making any noise). Besides that, there are limited train lines nearby, but the M is less than a half-mile away in a pinch. But if you’re looking to buy in Bushwick, this is definitely a deal to note!
