Even the broker couldn't decide if this was a two-, three-, or four-bedroom apartment. Bed sleeps two, the couch one, and a queen-size air mattress is available. One block from the subway, looks out onto the famous Smith Street.
It's important to love the space in which you live. Although it's a rental, we believe in the small improvements that make a huge difference. Some splashes of color, accents of wallpaper (it's removable!), crisp white high-gloss molding, and lots of plants taking advantage of the great light.
The light is one of my favorite parts of the space: you'll be awoken in the morning to the sun streaming in the eastern bedroom windows (unless you draw the curtains, of course), and the sun will follow you westward through the apartment as the day draws on, ending with lovely late-afternoon sunlight in the living room and office.

On the cusp of Boerum Hill and Cobble Hill, this area has a rich history dating to the early Dutch farmer settlements. Smith Street (and Court Street nearby) have become bustling, family-friendly streets chock-full of limitless restaurants, coffee shops, small stores, bars and other amenities.
Be sure to visit MTA's New York Transit Museum a few short blocks away as well as the site of the world's oldest subway tunnel next to Trader Joe's Grocery Store (search 'Verge Tunnel Vision').
Take a stroll south on Smith Street via (website hidden) Street View and see for yourself!
It's one block to the F/G subways at Bergen and a 5-min walk to the A/C (Hoyt-Schermerhorn), 2/3 (Hoyt) or 2/3/4/5 (Borough Hall), which will put you in Manhattan in a jiffy.
Street parking is available directly outside the apartment and surrounding streets on a first-come, first-served basis, but it's a heck of a lot easier to find parking in Brooklyn than in the much-denser Manhattan. Most overnight guests find parking on the block.
