65 south elliott place fort greene 72014

The exterior has been restored, but it seems there is not a shred left of the once-beautiful early Italianate interior of this historic circa-1853 home. Brownstoner readers who’ve been following this property since it was abandoned, then for sale, and finally under going an exterior restoration will want to check out this rental listing for the upper triplex to see the transformation.

943 st marks avenue crown heights 72014

Here’s a slightly pricey but modern one-bedroom condo for rent in Crown Heights. The exposed brick might not appeal to everyone, but the kitchen has stainless steel appliances and a decent amount of cabinet space. The big windows help open up the living room too. However, the asking price seems ambitious for this size and location. What do you think of it for $2,000 a month?

122 west street greenpoint 72014

At 677 square feet, this one-bedroom condo for rent in one of the Eberhard Pencil Factory buildings is rather small for the price, but it has a clean, modern feel. The large windows at the front of the living area help brighten up the long space, and the master bedroom is spacious. The building at 122 West Street also has nice amenities, including a roof deck, extra storage and fitness center. What do you think of it for $3,100 a month?

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?

845 Manhattan Avenue greenpoint 72014

Here’s a freshly renovated three-bedroom in Greenpoint that’s close to the G train and all the bars and restaurants on Manhattan Avenue.

The building is four blocks in either direction to the Greenpoint Avenue or Nassau Avenue G train stops. It’s kind of pricey, but there isn’t much inventory in Greenpoint. What do you think for $3,850 a month?
