Sunset Park is quintessentially Brooklyn. The diverse neighborhood is far enough away from Manhattan to feel like its own place, but close enough for an easy commute. And its namesake park is phenomenal! Prices can be high here, but great deals can still be found. For example, our Deal of the Week. This Sunset Park 2BR, 4407 Fourth Ave. #3D, is spacious, bright, and beautifully renovated.
The Price: $599,000
The median asking price for a home in Sunset Park is $1.2 million, according to the StreetEasy Data Dashboard. That puts our Deal of the Week at half the median asking price for the neighborhood!
Buyers who put down the 20% minimum down payment of $119,800 can expect to see monthly payments of $2,467. This includes a mortgage payment of $1,972 and a maintenance fee of $495 — very low by NYC standards.
Why You’ll Love It…
This Sunset Park 2BR is well-lit thanks to seven windows! Some face east and some face north, keeping things cheerful with a good amount of light throughout the day. Upon entering, a small entryway leads to the big, open kitchen/living/dining space.
Thoughtful renovations shine bright in the kitchen, where sleek white cabinetry pairs perfectly with the black hardware and backsplash. Stainless steel appliances include a dishwasher. Also recently renovated? The bathroom, which boasts an old-school clawfoot tub and bold patterned floor tile. There are antique details throughout, such as brass doorknobs and sconces. Both bedrooms are spacious and located on opposite sides of the apartment for maximum privacy.
Finally, our Deal of the Week is set in a pet-friendly building with a shared laundry room and courtyard. It’s only one block from Sunset Park itself, which features sports facilities, lawns, and skyline vistas. Last but not least, the R train to Manhattan is super-close — less than a block away.

… And Why You Might Not
As spacious as this Sunset Park 2BR is, there isn’t a whole lot of closet space. In fact, there seems to be only one, right when you walk in. Both bedrooms have freestanding wardrobes in the listing photos, so you might have to opt for a similar storage setup. The building also has no elevator, which means our Deal of the Week is a third-floor walkup.
