Downtown Brooklyn may have originated as the borough’s municipal center, but it’s got a lot more going on than just politics. It’s perfect for those who want a little hustle and bustle. Our Deal of the Week, 235 Adams St. #12C, is a Downtown Brooklyn 2BR in a stellar location that’s a little set-back from the action. It has lots of great features, too, including a chef’s kitchen.

The Price: $675,000

The median asking price for a home in Downtown Brooklyn is $1.2 million, according to the StreetEasy Data Dashboard. That means our Deal of the Week is around half the median asking price for the neighborhood!

Why You’ll Love It…

There’s a lot to love in this Downtown Brooklyn 2BR besides just the price. Let’s start with the windows, which face east and south for ample light throughout the day. In addition, our Deal of the Week opens into a real foyer, complete with a generously sized closet. There are three more closets, too: another large one in the main bedroom and two smaller ones outside the bathroom.

Speaking of storage, there’s plenty in the bathroom and kitchen as well. Also in the kitchen? Long granite counters and stainless steel appliances, including a brand new dishwasher. (In other words, NYC luxury.) The bright living room has ample space for both living and dining furniture. Pocket doors separate it from the second bedroom/den, and the large primary bedroom is located down the hall.

Finally, this unit is located in the Concord Village co-op complex, which offers lots of amenities. Besides an elevator and doorman, there’s shared laundry, a gym, and a rooftop deck that overlooks the Manhattan skyline. (Including the Brooklyn Bridge — talk about Instagram-worthy!) The building is situated right near multiple train lines and multiple parks. Additionally, the Brooklyn Bridge pedestrian walkway is literally across the street.

… And Why You Might Not

The second bedroom in this Downtown Brooklyn 2BR is small. It’s really more appropriately sized to be a home office than a bedroom. Still, its dimensions could fit a full-size bed, and it does have a nice window. And the bathroom tiles are a bit off-center, which may bother a detail-oriented person. But all in all, this is truly a fantastic deal for the neighborhood.
