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.

The real selling point on this place is that it resembles a medical facility, which you’ll need after these rentals bleed you dry. (Source: Patricia Basile Realty)

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

Three Bedrooms and Cardboard Boxes in Bensonhurst
Price: $1,900
Location: 71st Street and 18th Avenue

Contact:Peter Change, (646) 778-2260

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

Two Bedrooms and a Balcony in Bath Beach
Price: $1,600
Location: 8600 Bay 16th Street

I applaud the agent for this creative fly-on-the-wall shot. That or there is a hidden camera in that corner used to spy on you. (Source: KW/NYC)

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.

Not only do you get natural sunlight here but you can actually see a sliver of the sky. (Source: Rapid Realty)

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.

Pray, is that a full kitchen, a hallway and real sunlight? All in one apartment? (Source: Triumph Property Group)

Three Bedrooms and Hallways in Bath Beach
Price: $2,300
Location: Bay 41st Street and Harway Avenue
Description: This big apartment has been completely renovated and includes a dishwasher. Unfortunately, pets aren’t allowed.
Contact: Claudia Caicedo, Triumph Property Group, (917)435-5554

Studio with Creepy Curtains in Bensonhurst
Price: $1,150
Location: 1806 76th Street
Description: With the D train close by and rent that is cheaper than many places, this apartment might be suitable for someone who isn’t home too often. Whether or not you’ll soon be calling “this charming space home,” as the realtor boasts in the post, is up for debate.
Contact: Megan Walsh, Realty Collective, (914) 882-1169

One Bedroom Near 86th Street in Bath Beach
Price: $1,350
Location: 57 Bay 14th Street
Description: With a sizable kitchen, this one bedroom is larger than most. But it looks like the apartment gets absolutely no sunlight even though it has windows. Good credit is a must.
Contact: Mallorie Watts, Rapid Realty, (646) 634-2346

Two Bedrooms and Wall Lamps in Bensonhurst
Price: $1,750
Location: 7522 Bay Parkway
Description: Once in a while you stumble across things during an apartment search that seem like, uh, interesting design choices by the previous tenants. In this apartment, there are two lamps hanging on one of the walls. Who knows, they may be collector’s items.

One “Luxurious” Bedroom in Gravesend
Price: $3,500
Location: West 8th Street
Description: While this apartment has been completely renovated with new floors and kitchen appliances, the real allure of this apartment is in the angles. The realtor writes, “Angles that amaze you.” So if you’re into angles, this place is for you.
Contact: Dan Kogan, Oxford Property Group, (718)864-6688

Three Bedrooms in Mapleton
Price: $2,100
Location: 70th Street between 18th Avenue and 19th Avenue
Description: Located on the first floor, this apartment has been renovated and all of the rooms in the pictures are spacious. Heat, hot water and cooking gas are included.
Contact: James Orlando, St. James Realty, (718) 256-5100

One Bedroom in Dyker Heights
Price: $1,150
Location: Bay Ridge Parkway and 14th Avenue
Description: For a one bedroom, this place is very large. The kitchen, along with the rest of the apartment, has been fully renovated. There is the issue of the bathroom picture. In it, all you can see is the sink so it’s unclear whether all bathroom-related business will have to be conducted through the sink.
Contact: Jessica Lobaito, Ben Bay Realty, (347) 517-3736

Two Bedrooms in Bensonhurst
Price: $1,750
Location: 65th Street and Dahill Road
Description: This apartment gets good lighting, all the better to see the fancy camera angles this realtor employs. Within these shots, he gets down and close to the floor to dazzle you with the light reflecting off that newly renovated wood floor. The apartment also seems to have been painted by a very, shall we say, temperamental person. Each room has its own color (some would say personality) ranging from green to orange.

Three Bedrooms and Prominent Radiators in Dyker Heights
Price: $2,300
Location: 67th Street
Description: In many of the pictures for this apartment there are radiators awkwardly standing against the wall like a miserable teenager. The apartment looks spacious and it’s on the third floor. The only down side might be a lack of sunlight. But that will be for you to judge.
Contact: James Monteleone, All Points Real Estate, (718) 907-5442

Three Bedrooms in Bath Beach
Price: $1,650
Location: 122 Bay 13th Street
Description: The three bedrooms in this apartment all appear to be very small (shoebox size) but the kitchen looks huge. So my suggestions is, set up your bed in the kitchen. It’ll save you time grabbing those late-night snacks.
Contact: Rapid Realty, (646) 494-4623

Two “Immaculate” Bedrooms in Dyker Heights
Price: $1,500
Location: 67th Street and 13th Avenue
Description: Heat and hot water are included and “good credit is a must.” The realtor also describes the two bedrooms as “immaculate,” which seems unlikely for a place that is constantly being rented out.
Contact: Patti Tran, New Century Realty Group, (917) 238-8431

One Bedroom in Bath Beach
Price: $1,250
Location: Bay 29th Street at Bath Avenue
Description: This apartment has been freshly painted and there is a large kitchen with enough space for a table.

Note: Based on conversations with real estate agents and having written this column for a few months now, rent prices have begun  to increase this month and will peak during the spring and summer. So if you’re looking to get a place, now is better than later.

Studio in Bensonhurst
Price: $1,150
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?
Contact: Zuz Realty, (718) 513-3763

Two Bedrooms in Private House in Mapleton
Price: $1,700
Location: Dahill Road
Description: Located on the first floor of a private home, this apartment has been completely renovated. There is also an option to use the driveway for $150 per month.
Contact: Michael Merola, Citi Habitats, (917) 892-6664

Three “Modern” Bedrooms in Dyker Heights
Price: $1,800
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.
Contact: New Century Realty Group, (917) 238-8431

Three Bedrooms in Bath Beach
Price: $1,850
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.

One Spacious Bedroom in Gravesend
Price: $1,450
Location: 82nd Street and Bay Parkway
Description: Even if this realtor is playing a camera trick, this apartment is still pretty big. The living room is big and the wood floors have all been renovated. And all of the doorways seem to have this arabesque shape to them, giving the apartment an interesting vibe.
Contact: Chauncey Palmer, Oxford Property Group, (347)409-7970

Three Bedrooms in Bensonhurst
Price: $2,050
Location: 80th Street and 21st Avenue
Description: In the words of the realtor: “This is it!” Behold, an apartment that is bigger than two bedrooms. This selling point of the realtor leaves much to be desired. Do any of the bedrooms get any light? Will I be given a lollipop before or after the apartment viewing?
Contact: Zuz Realty, (718) 513-3763

One Bedroom in Dyker Heights
Price: $1,200
Location: 13th Avenue
Description: Located above a store, this apartment has a new kitchen with lots of counter space. A washer and dryer are included, and the tiles in the bathroom are new. Oh, and it’s also FIOS ready, which I’m jealous of because I’ve been calling FIOS for over a year and they still haven’t made it out to my corner of Southern Brooklyn. Whatever.

One Bedroom in Gravesend
Price: $1,850
Location: 81st Street between Bay Parkway and 23rd Avenue
Description: Apart from the apartment being bathed in white, what sticks out the most is just how tiny the kitchen is. It looks as though if your waist is bigger than a size 32, you’ll have a hard time making those scrambled eggs. The building is a walk-up, but the realtor doesn’t indicate what floor the apartment is on so if you get this place maybe you won’t have that 32 waist for long.

Two Bedroom in Dyker Heights
Price: $1,850
Location: 1215 72nd Street

Three Bedrooms and a Hallway in Bensonhurst
Price: $1,550
Location: 1843 67th Street
Description: This apartment is for those who are tired of small or almost non-existent kitchens. Here is a full kitchen with enough room for a table and leg room. There’s even a hallway.
Contact: Coldwell Banker Reliable Rental Division, (718) 921-3100

Two Bedrooms and a Cutout Kitchen in Bath Beach
Price: $1,450
Location: Bay 17th Street
Description: This apartment has a warm quality about it. The kitchen cutout window and the dark wood used on the floors and the door frames all create a cozy feeling in this apartment. Heat and hot water are included.
