Greenwood Heights One-Bedroom With Big Kitchen, Backyard Asks $2,100 a Month


The garden-level floor-through of this Greenwood Heights townhouse, a one-bedroom, boasts garden access and an extra large, U-shaped kitchen replete with cupboards and laminated counters that wrap around into a breakfast bar. The kitchen, with matching speckled gray floor, has two windows, one scalloped, and opens to the living room through a large arched doorway, shown in a previous listing.

The bedroom too is through a wide doorway from the living room. The floor plan doesn’t show doors, but the previous listing shows that the passage has double doors. The bedroom has built-in closets and three windows inside a bay. The floors appear to be wood-look laminate.

The apartment seems to have little original detail left, and the rooms seem a tad narrow, but the ceilings are high. The living room, a windowless and largely featureless space in the center of the unit, appears in a previous listing.

A substantial backyard is accessed through the bathroom, which is also not shown. (A previous listing shows white floor tile, a tub and pedestal sink.) The backyard is mostly un-landscaped and covered in concrete, with tall trees at its edge. It abuts historic Greenwood Cemetery, a major tourist attraction in the 19th century.

427 36th Street is a circa 1890s townhouse measuring 17 feet wide. Before it got sided over it and its neighbors had highly ornamental facades with detailed cornices, dentil molding, and pedimented porticos, all visible in this circa 1940 tax photo. It was already sided by 1981.

At $2,100 for a one-bedroom with utilities included, it’s relatively affordable for a floor-through with a garden. The listing, from Helen Chee at Compass, advertises its proximity to Industry City, less than two blocks away, and Barclays in Park Slope, a 12-minute subway ride. Is it a good price for the size and location?
