One-Bedroom Available in Bushwick’s Landmarked Cook Mansion


If you’re ever wondered what the interior of Bushwick’s landmarked Cook Mansion looks like, we have the answer. Bushwick Daily spotted this one-bedroom for rent on Craigslist last week and surprisingly, the ad is still up.

Well, the 546-square-foot pad at 670 Bushwick Avenue (on the corner of Willoughby) has been completely gutted and looks like any new (or not so new) rental. It’s on the second floor with a balcony — presumably the one over the front door. There is baseboard heating, replacement floors, vinyl flooring in the kitchen, and what looks to be plenty of drywall. On the plus side, the replacement doors are solid wood and there seems to be tons of windows and light all around.

Also known as the Catherina Lipsius House, the American Round Arch style mansion was completed in 1890 and commissioned by Catherina, who owned the Claus Lipsius Brewing Company. It’s right next to KFC and the elevated track, and down the street from two apartment buildings under construction. Wonder how loud the train is.
