Two Bedrooms and an Intercom in Bensonhurst
Price: $1,400
Location: 1802 Bay Ridge Avenue
Description: With an intercom and a thermostat to control your environment, you’ll soon be saying, “beam me up, Scotty” in this fancy, modern apartment. And trains are nearby to take you “to New York City” because apparently the real estate Gods have removed Southern Brooklyn from the city (but apparently they don’t mind charging us town-folk city prices).

Three Bedrooms in Bath Beach
Price: $1,900
Location: Bay 43rd Street
Description: This apartment has two floors, a backyard and two bathrooms. It’s a really nice looking place, until you get to the bedrooms, with some carpets that seem more than a little bit out of place.
Contact: Rapid Realty Dumbo, (347) 260-6877

Two Bedrooms in Bensonhurst
Price: $1,500
Location: 80th Avenue and New Utrecht Avenue
Description: Here’s another apartment that is on a tree-lined block. I love tree-lined blocks, those not-so-rare things. The apartment has really nice wood floors with a yellow colored bedroom.
Contact: Ahmed Taha, Spire Group, (718) 290-7483

Two Bedrooms and a “Reserved Street” in Gravesend
Price: $1,600
Location: 1811 West 6th Street
Description: This “cute” newly renovated apartment is good for a new family, according to the realtor. But then who knows what to believe when the same person writes that the street is “reserved.”

“Pristine” Two Bedrooms in Dyker Heights
Price: $1,600
Location: 1183 73rd Street
Description: In all my interwebs travels, I’ve rarely come across beautiful apartment pictures from realtors. But this listing has pictures that transcends the form into art. It also looks like someone finally figured out how to use Instagram filters. The kitchen opens up into the living room and is separated by an island. The bedrooms don’t look very big but who cares when you have a kitchen island?
Contact: Roseanne Degliuomini, Douglas Elliman Real Estate, (718) 710-1844

Two Bedrooms with a Verrazano Bridge View in Bath Beach  
Price: $2,100
Location: 26th Avenue
Description: This “condo like” apartment is on the fourth floor, giving you a good view of that bridge that unfortunately connects us to Staten Island. The realtor also writes that there is outdoor space but from looking at the pictures, it could hardly be called usable space since it’s a thin narrow cat-walk area.
Contact: Dmitry Yakhnis, Rapid Realty, (347) 619-3462

One Bedroom and a Million Windows in Borough Park
Price: $1,375
Location: 1683 57th Street
Description: With more windows than I care to count, the realtor is probably right in claiming that this apartment is “sun drenched.” There are four closets and the kitchen is actually a kitchen and not just a slender piece of the apartment.

One Bedroom in Bensonhurst
Price: $1,450
Location:  67th Street and 16th Avenue
Description: This apartment is being marketed by the realtor M.Kelly, R.Kelly’s less glorious sibling. And it only gets better with this hot and fresh out the kitchen apartment listing. The bathroom comes with cheetah print curtains. Just make sure to not get trapped in these closets.
Contact: M. Kelly, Okelly Realty, (718) 745-1100

Three Bedrooms in Bensonhurst
Price: $2,000
Location: 70th Street and off 18th Avenue
Description: With huge windows and an equally large kitchen, you can’t go wrong with this apartment. And it has a “full-size refrigerator and stove” for all you full-size humans out there.
Contact: Tina Casale, Citi Habitats, (718) 753-0680

Three Bedrooms in Gravesend
Price: $2,395
Location: 2386 Boynton Place
Description: I present to you free parking. Not parking for a fee, but free. To say the windows for this apartment are large would be very misleading because they’re absolutely huge.

One Bedroom in Gravesend
Price: $1,395
Location: 77th Street and Bay Parkway
Description: While I agree with the realtor that the apartment is spacious, I think we have a different sense of what plenty of sunlight is. The impression I get from that is it will feel like the sun is sitting by my window. But what these pictures show is tiny slivers of light. I guess you can imagine they’re spotlights in the grand drama you call your life.
Contact: Frankel Desdunes, Oxford Property Group, (347) 683-01

One Bedroom in Bensonhurst
Price: $1,100
Location: 1739 West 3rd Street
Description: If there’s one reason to look at this apartment, it’s the kitchen. There’s enough space in there for a small table or a huge bird cage.
Contact: Gregory D’Avola, Arena Properties, (718) 484-7999

Two Bedrooms in Bath Beach
Price: $1,600
Location: Bay 22nd and Bath Avenue
Description: The cherry wood floors in this apartment are very classy and invite you to walk around barefoot. That’s really all I have to say about this place, leaving you with the not-so-pleasant thought of my feet.
Contact: Ashan Akmal, Rapid Realty, (646) 750-7844

Two Bedrooms and a Narrow Hallway in Bensonhurst
Price: 74th Street and Bay Parkway
Location: $1,695
Description: The hallway is long and thin, a perfect abode for all sorts of ghouls. The kitchen is big and you’ll find enough natural light.

Two Bedrooms in Bensonhurst
Price: $1,400
Location: 1802 Bay Ridge Avenue
Description: Now here’s a realtor I don’t hate. He writes that there’s a laundry room in the building and he backs that up with a few pictures of that laundry. Call me gullible, but that’s proof right there. Unfortunately, pets aren’t allowed so me and Ms. Fluff-Cake will be taking our business elsewhere.
Contact: James Orlando, St. James Realty, 718-256-5100

One Bedroom in Bensonhurst
Price: $1,300
Location: 68th Street and 21st Avenue
Description: This apartment meets all your basic standards, with a bathroom that comes with walls and a bedroom. But the one unsettling thing is the “kitchen combo.” Based on a Bensonhurst Bean analysis (Google search) we’ve found that this deceptively appealing phrase may actually refer to one of those mini-fridges, which is great for a mini-bar but not for your regular-sized needs
Contact: Zuz Realty, (718) 513-3763

Two Bedrooms in Gravesend
Price: $1,400
Location: 85th Street and 24th Avenue
Description: The best way to find a reliable realtor is by looking at their photo. Are they taking selfies? If so, then go with him because he’s obviously got his priorities straight. This apartment has a really well-lit kitchen, all the better to see just how small it is.

Two Bedrooms in Gravesend
Price: $1,525
Location: West 6th Street and Highlawn Avenue
Description: This apartment has been completely renovated and is located in a five-family building. While some of the rooms have hardwood floors, there is one room that has what looks like a carpet.
Contact: Svetlana Aksman, Dsa Realty, 718 629 8722

Four Bedrooms in Bensonhurst
Price:  $2,300
Location: 1757 80th Street
Description: With lots of natural light and four bedrooms, this apartment is very spacious. The only problem is all the pictures are upside down so this apartment must reside in some alter universe. That’s just my guess.
Contact:Rapid Realty, (718) 744-7140

One Bedroom and a Parking Spot in Bath Beach
Price: $1,200
Location: Bay 22nd Street and 20th Drive
Description: If you’re into really small kitchens and almost no natural light, then take a look at this place. While this apartment isn’t ideal, there’s a parking space that comes with it. And we all know that’s the true importance.
Contact: Daniel Gallogly,  (718) 449-0505

One Bedroom in Bath Beach
Price: $1,150
Location: Bath Avenue and 15th Avenue
Description: This apartment is for all you carpet lovers out there. Besides the bathroom and the kitchen, the apartment has carpets and it looks like there is a good amount of sunlight, but who can tell with those old lady curtains.

One Bedroom in Bath Beach
Price: $1,150
Location: Bay 31st Street
Description: Looking to move into the world-renowned Bath, with its restorative powers on your constitution? Well then you’re on the wrong side of the Atlantic Ocean.

Three Bedrooms With “Floating” Floors in Bensonhurst
Price: $2,200
Location: 81st Street and 21st Avenue
Description: What can be said about this apartment except that it has floating wood floors, a fad that is all the rave these days. Now for the reality check: there’s a heap of bills you have to pay up front – one month security deposit, first month rent and one month broker’s fee. Floating wood. Keep saying it to yourself.

Two Bedrooms in Mapleton
Price: $1,350
Location: 62nd Street and 20th Avenue
Description: For once, there are no renovated floors because there is no wood. The floors are made out of this completely alien material called ceramic. What it does and how it works is anyone’s guess but it sure is shiny and looks easy to clean.
Contact:  Daniel Gallogly, Patricia Basile Realty, (718) 449-0505

One Bedroom in Gravesend
Price: $1,500
Location: West 3rd Street between Highlawn Avenue and Kings Highway

One “Original Bedroom” and a Tub in Bensonhurst
Price: $1,200
Location: Dahill Road and Avenue P
Description: Bathrooms come standard in any apartment. If They (capital T) could get away with removing it they would. This realtor seems to be treading that line when he writes having “A TUB!!” to be an original feature. Some more “original features.” A “Herringbone bone style” wood floor, but the pictures just show pretty ordinary floors. There are also three full closets and one linen closet, all of which are the height of NYC originality.
Contact: Andy, KW/NYC, (347) 781-3314

Three Bedrooms and a Huge House in Dyker Heights
Price: $2,999
Location: 85th Street and 11th Avenue
Description: This listing is saturated with pictures and more pictures. Both dizzying and beautiful, going through all of the pictures gives you the feeling that you’re going to be renting a mansion (or maybe I’ve just been looking at small apartments for too long).
Contact: Renee Dorsa, Dorsa Group Realty, (718) 921-9012

Three Bedrooms in Bath Beach
Price: $2,000
Location: Bay 26th Street
Description: This agent has taken a special interest in photographing the walls in this apartment. She’s all about the walls and the not-so-sunlit windows.
Contact: Michelle Castillo, Rapid Realty, (646) 400-8966

One Bedroom in Bensonhurst
Price: $1,400
Location: 1924 Bay Ridge Parkway
Description: Meet Joel S. He’s such a bad-ass agent that he doesn’t even have a full last name. Just call him S. The S. And the apartment is equally cool and suave with renovated wood floors and spacious rooms. Now all you need to do is shorten your last name to one letter.

Three Bedroom Condo in Gravesend
Price: $2,200
Location: West 6th Street  and Avenue V
Description: Located on the top floor, this condo gets sunlight in the apartment (unless of course the pictures they put up aren’t actually for the apartment listing but realtors never do that, right?). There are also two bathrooms as well as a balcony and roof access.
Contact: Peter, Rapid Realty, (646) 778-2260

One Bedroom Apartment in Private Home in Bath Beach
Price: $1,000
Location: 1295 Shore Parkway
Description: With a (possibly fake) plant and a (possibly used) shower curtain, this apartment has all the necessary amenities for the good (read: mediocre) life. The apartment is located on the first floor of a two-family home and the walls have all been renovated.
Contact: Margaret Calarco, Coldwell Banker, (917) 282-5635

Three Bedrooms in Bensonhurst/Borough Park
Price: $1,800
Location: 64th Street and 24th Avenue
Description: The kitchen has a built in counter that could pass for a bar-top if you’re a alcoholic real estate blogger thirsty person. Based on the pictures, you can see some trees out of one of the windows instead of the usual brick wall in your face. In one of the other pictures a woman holds up an iPad mini as though she fished it from the back of the stove. Maybe there are more where those came from? Bonus points!
Contact: Mina Moller, Anchor Associates, (347) 366-1990

One Bedroom in Bensonhurst
Price: $1,200
Location: 1970 72nd Street
Description: Not only is the kitchen here large, but it is also modern. Based on the pictures, this boast seems to come from the fact that there is a magic white little object that sends radiates beams of energy through your food. This awesome device is otherwise known as the microwave and there was a point in history when it was considered to be the ultimate in modernity. Personally, I don’t think homes should be called “modern” unless they have a house-wide operating system that speaks in the sexy, sultry voice of one Scarlett Johansson. But, then, too many people would try to make love to that house and it’d be pretty awful.
