Studio in Bensonhurst
Location: Avenue P and Dahill Road
Description: This apartment has two things going for it. There’s a lot of closet space (or maybe the realtor just posted several pictures of the same closet) and there are many windows. The kitchen is praised as being a “nice kitchen” but it’s more of a small kitchen-unit jammed into the room. In fact, it’s kind of pathetic. But that doesn’t sound so good in a listing, now does it?

Three “Modern” Bedrooms in Dyker Heights
Location: 6906 13th Avenue
Description: This apartment seems to be very spacious. The realtor begins to list the things featured in the apartment and then in a moment of either ecstatic joy or a nervous breakdown, they write, “Too much to mention!” So why bother.

Three Bedrooms in Bath Beach
Location: 8777 20th Avenue
Description: This apartment has a large kitchen, long hallways and spacious bedrooms. I assume the newspapers on the floor in the photos are not included. Bummer for a newsman like me.
