There are lots of great neighborhoods surrounding Brooklyn’s Prospect Park, and most come with a hefty price tag. But it’s still possible to find a great deal — especially if you venture beyond marquee areas like Park Slope. That’s what makes 224 22nd St. #2C our Deal of the Week! This Greenwood 2BR offers space, a brand-new kitchen, and a balcony for an incredible price. And it’s so far north in the neighborhood that it’s practically South Slope.
The Price: $598,000
The median asking price for a home in Greenwood is $1.4 million, according to the StreetEasy Data Dashboard. That puts our Deal of the Week at less than half the median asking price for the neighborhood.
Buyers who put down the 20% minimum down payment of $119,600 can expect to see monthly payments of $3,216. This includes a mortgage payment of $2,020, common charges of $750, and taxes of $446.
Why You’ll Love It…
This Greenwood 2BR is perfectly laid out, in our humble opinion. There’s a handy coat closet right at the entry, leading into a spacious and open living/dining area with oak floors. The far wall offers access to the balcony, a cozy spot surrounded by greenery. (Use it for morning meetings, lazy Sunday brunches, yoga sessions — the possibilities are endless.) At the other end of the living room is a beautifully renovated kitchen. It’s both stunning and super-functional, with stainless steel appliances that include a dishwasher. There’s also a clever built-in table that provides extra counter space, a breakfast bar, or even a work-from-home desk. To the side you’ll find the bedrooms, one on either side of a nicely updated bathroom. One is slightly bigger than the other, but both have plenty of space. Both also feature big double-door closets.
Finally, our Deal of the Week is in a well-located condo building with a common laundry room. The setting, on the border of Greenwood Heights and South Slope, puts you close to the R train and tons of great neighborhood eateries. And of course, it’s also right near beautiful, historic Green-Wood Cemetery. The southwest corner of Prospect Park is not too far either!

… And Why You Might Not
This Greenwood 2BR is a true 2-bedroom, meaning both bedrooms are of legal size and have a window. But it’s not entirely clear where the window in the second bedroom opens up to. It’s the only window in the apartment facing that direction, and the shade is closed in the listing photo. So it seems likely that it faces an airshaft or a brick wall.
