Rental of the Day: 57 2nd Street, #1


This three-bedroom, two-bath triplex in Gowanus is charming and big enough for a family. Although the listing claims the apartment is in Carroll Gardens, it’s actually just over the boundary east of Hoyt and within two blocks of the canal. The apartment is spread across a parlor floor, garden floor and a furnished basement. It also has a little private garden.

The two parlor-floor bedrooms seem nicely sized. The third is located in what the listing calls the basement, but it’s below the garden floor, which technically makes it the cellar. Usually bedroom units on that level are illegal, and in this location, we’d be worried about flooding.

The kitchen has been nicely renovated and offers a Viking stove, dishwasher and washer/dryer, as well as an island for additional counter space. And it’s only two blocks from the Carroll Street F and G trains. Of course, all this space and a garden doesn’t come cheap. What’s your opinion of it for $5,500 a month?
