Rental of the Day: 36 Thomas S. Boyland Street

36 thomas s boyland street bed stuy 72014

As rents in Bed Stuy skyrocket, it’s easy to forget you can still find deals like this three-bedroom, particularly in eastern Bed Stuy and Ocean Hill. The living room seems nicely sized, and the kitchen and bathroom are both recently updated.

There are two large bedrooms and one smaller one, according to the listing. You could also use it as a two-bedroom and keep the third one as an office or nursery. The location is close to the Bushwick border and two or three blocks from the J at Halsey or the J/Z at Chauncey. Do you think it’s reasonable at $1,800 a month?

  • “The unit features two large bedrooms and one smaller bedroom, plus a double-sized living area great for entertaining guest.”

    Are you kidding me? Really? 3 Br, 1 Bath, not very practical, I guess you have to take a number to use the bathroom in the morning when it is time to go to work. Not me brother, I’ll save my money and put it towards a down payment on a house.


  • I don’t see any room in those pictures that I would consider a “large” bedroom. That said, I don’t see how the price could really be much lower for even a reasonable-sized two bedroom. Do rents get much cheaper for a two-bedroom?

    I don’t think there’s anything particularly difficult about the 3 bedrooms to 1 bathroom ratio.

  • People will soon see the opportunity to turn the corner past B’way Junction on the J/Z and see the lower rents, decent or sometimes GREAT housing stock in the Cypress Hills/Highland Park area. It’s NOT the scary East New York when you’re up on the slope, North of the train line on Fulton. Lots of opportunities, Corcoran ain’t there yet people! take a look
