Here’s a fancy reno close to the J at Gates Avenue in east Bed Stuy. By Brooklyn rental standards, it seems high end. It’s a duplex with three bedrooms, 2.5 baths, a private deck and access to a big shared backyard. There’s central air and heat too. Asking rent is $3,500.
But at the end of the day, you’re still living off the J train and paying $1,166 a bedroom. Do you think it’s worth it?
