Image of Prospect Heights Studio

This Prospect Heights studio comes with loads of amenities.

In New York City, renters often have to choose between luxury amenities and historic charm. But here we have a Prospect Heights studio located in a former industrial building — the Billiard Factory Lofts — that offers loads of character and a whole lot of contemporary luxuries, too. Listed for $2,400, it’s priced just below the local median. Could this apartment be the best of both worlds?

Address: 363 Prospect Place #2G

Price: $2,400

Size: Studio

Neighborhood: Prospect Heights

Best feature: Prospect Heights offers proximity to Prospect Park, an easygoing lifestyle, and good bang for your buck. This studio has all of that, plus a suite of great amenities, including a doorman, gym and shared roof deck. Only seven other rental buildings in this neighborhood have comparable amenities.

Inside the unit itself, there’s in-unit laundry, a dishwasher and built-in microwave. Tall windows look out onto a tree-lined residential block, and an exposed brick wall and dark oak floors give the place a sophisticated charm.

Why it’s a deal: With a spate of newer buildings along the Atlantic Yards corridor, rents in Prospect Heights have been rising recently. The median price for a studio was last recorded at $2,468 — just above what this studio is asking.

Biggest drawback: The unit is a studio, and a small one at that, but the efficient layout packs in a lot of features. And if it ever gets cramped, the Billiard Factory Lofts building offers common spaces like a theater, lounge, and multiple common roof decks where you can spread out.
