You won’t have to compromise on location or budget with this Downtown Brooklyn studio. Hugging the border with Fort Greene, this spacious studio is steps from Fort Greene Park and offers easy access to entertainment and transportation – all at a price below the neighborhood median.
Address: 218 Myrtle Ave. #7L
Neighborhood: Downtown Brooklyn
Best feature: Straddling Fort Greene and Downtown Brooklyn, this studio is steps away from the best of both neighborhoods. Prospective renters would be close to the busy business center of Downtown Brooklyn as well as the Brooklyn Academy of Music, City Point Shopping Center, Atlantic Terminal Mall, and Barclays Center.
Located in The Andrea, this studio boasts some pretty sweet amenities like a fitness center, smart-card laundry facilities, and communal outdoor space. The interior of the unit isn’t too shabby either. At 404-square feet, the studio is a generous size, with parquet floors and plenty of closet space. And yes, Virginia, there is a dishwasher! No more ruining your manicure busting suds, or letting dishes pile up in the sink until you’re out of clean forks. Welcome to the good life.

Why it’s a deal: Coming in $507 below the neighborhood median of $2,707, this Downtown Brooklyn studio is a great value for the area, especially when the building amenities are factored in. Plus, there’s no broker’s fee, so renters will have plenty of extra cash to spend on the neighborhood’s popular restaurants and nightlife.
Biggest drawback: While the building seems to check off the most coveted of amenities, surprisingly, there’s no doorman. If you need a full-service building with lobby concierge, you may want to pass on this listing.
