This extra-big one-bedroom loft next to the Navy Yard in the Chocolate Factory is the real thing but pricey. The 1,300-square-foot pad has original wood beams, columns, iron work and part of the original wood ceiling, and there’s plenty of closet space. And the kitchen is getting new floors and stainless steel appliances. Building amenities include laundry, 24-hour doorman, storage, parking garage, an organic market, spa and roof deck.
It’s large enough to build out one more bedroom, but the rent still seems steep for being so far from a decent subway line. However, there are free buses to Dumbo and downtown Brooklyn and a Citi Bike station close by. What’s your opinion of it for $3,300 a month?
