What do you get when you combine a prime location in a hot neighborhood with a bargain price that’s way below the area’s median? Our Rental of the Week, of course. This Williamsburg 2BR puts you right in the heart of the scene, just minutes from everything that makes this neighborhood so vibrant and popular.

Address: 228 Metropolitan Ave. #8

Price: $1,9500

Size: 2-bedroom

Neighborhood: Williamsburg

Best feature: Location, location, location! This Williamsburg 2BR is within just a few blocks of everything people love about Williamsburg. It’s a stone’s throw from neighborhood favorites like Radegast beer hall, Di Fara pizza, Pies ‘n’ Thighs, Nitehawk Cinema, and more. Plus, it’s practically across the street from Whole Foods and the Apple store. And for some green space and fresh air, Domino Park and McCarren Park are both nearby as well.

The apartment itself is clean and bright, with tall windows in every room — including the kitchen and bathroom. There are no bells and whistles to speak of, but everything is in good shape. The hardwood floors look particularly nice, maximized by lots of sunshine bouncing off them from those big windows. All in all, the 620 square feet of space provides two decent size bedrooms and a separate living room. Plus a full bath and a kitchen that’s big enough to eat in. With all of Williamsburg at your doorstep, do you need anything else?

Why it’s a deal: Here’s the real bonus — the median asking rent in Williamsburg is $3,050. That puts our Rental of the Week at more than $1,000 below average for this in-demand neighborhood! Share it with a roommate, and you’re paying just $975 each to live in the center of it all. Now that’s what we call a deal.

Biggest drawback: As mentioned, there are no bells and whistles to this Williamsburg 2BR. The walkup building does not seem to have laundry facilities. And if you’re looking for fancy kitchen appliances or luxury amenities, this is not the place for you. But if you’re looking for a fantastic deal in a fantastic location — you found it!
