Is there a more quintessential Brooklyn neighborhood than Park Slope? The brownstone-lined streets, the residential vibe. And of course, easy access to the borough’s crown jewel, Prospect Park. It’s no wonder prices run high in this highly desirable area. But our Rental of the Week is hidden gem: This Park Slope 2BR offers a bit of prewar charm, a bit of modern convenience, and a lot of space, all for a bargain price.

Address: 252 12th St. #4D

Price: $1,900

Size: 2-bedroom

Neighborhood: Park Slope

Best feature: A great space in a great neighborhood for a great price — what’s better than that? Besides the obvious, though, this Park Slope 2BR has a lot going for it. The floors are refinished to a high gloss, with many windows to let in plenty of sunshine. Copious wood trim throughout reminds you that you’re in one of the Slope’s classic prewar buildings. Split bedrooms are set on either side of a bright, welcoming living room.

The modern kitchen boasts quartz counters and stainless appliances, including a dishwasher. It’s also big enough to eat in, with a cozy nook tucked next to the window. Finally, the apartment is super-close to all the many shopping and dining options on Fifth Avenue.

Why it’s a deal: The median asking rent in Park Slope is $2,600, according to the StreetEasy Data Dashboard. That puts our Rental of the Week at a huge $700 per month below average for the area. It’s an even bigger bargain when you factor in an offer of one month free on a 12-year lease. That brings the net-effective rate down to $1,742 per month — just $871 apiece if you share with a roommate!

Biggest drawback: Unfortunately, this Park Slope 2BR is in a walkup building. So there are a few flights of stairs to contend with. Additionally, the building does not appear to have a laundry room. (But there are several laundromats nearby.) And while this location is very convenient to the subway, it’s several long avenue blocks away from Prospect Park.
