Greenpoint is having a moment. This northern Brooklyn area is giving its neighbor to the south, Williamsburg, a run for its money lately. In fact, it was just named StreetEasy’s #1 Neighborhood to Watch for 2021. And our Rental of the Week puts you right in the middle of the action. Even better, this Greenpoint 2BR offers 2 big, private bedrooms for a great price. Split the freight with a roommate, or treat yourself to a fabulous office space for work-from-home luxury!

Address: 125 Huron St. #1L

Price: $2,095

Size: 2-bedroom

Neighborhood: Greenpoint

Best feature: Both bedrooms here are large and comfortable, each with two big windows and a good-size closet. They’re also both nearly the exact same size and on opposite ends of the shared living room/kitchen. That makes this Greenpoint 2BR both private and equitable, ideal for a share situation. In addition, a long wall of exposed brick stretches the entire length of the apartment, adding character and warmth to every room. The hardwood floors are in great shape, as is the brick, and the kitchen and bath are newly renovated.

Our Rental of the Week’s location puts it close to loads of restaurant and shopping options on Franklin Street and Manhattan Avenue. Plus it’s very convenient to both the G train and the East River Ferry at India Street.

Why it’s a deal: The median asking rent in Greenpoint is $2,700, according to the StreetEasy Data Dashboard. That puts our Rental of the Week at more than $600 per month below average for the neighborhood — a significant savings.

Biggest drawback: Both bedrooms in this Greenpoint 2BR have beautiful windows. But unfortunately, the common living area in the middle seems to have none at all. So the only natural light in the living room and kitchen comes from keeping the bedroom doors propped open. It’s still a great space overall though. And if you keep it for yourself instead of sharing, you can use one of the bedrooms as a living room and use the living area as a nice, quiet office.
