Calling all roommates! Our Rental of the Week is your chance to live in an upscale Brooklyn neighborhood, each with your own bedroom and bathroom, for a shockingly great price. This Bushwick 2BR is the very definition of roommate happiness – and the common areas are also pretty good, both indoors and outdoors.
Address: 1009 Willoughby Ave. # 2E
Price: $ 2,000
Best feature: Each 2-bedroom can be shared, of course, but adding a second full bath is a recipe for a peaceful roommate relationship. Each valet gets their own private space, with no arguments about shower time or messy sinks. Sweet!
However this Bushwick 2BR has even more to love. The kitchen is new and beautiful, with tons of space and a cabinet and stainless steel appliance. (Including dishwasher.) The windows are huge, flooding the space with natural light. There are hardwood floors and central air in general. In addition, the building offers laundry facilities and many outdoor options, including a roof access and a shared courtyard. And it’s just a few blocks from Maria Hernandez Park.
Why it’s a deal: The average asking rent in Bushwick is $ 2,350, according to the StreetEasy Data Dashboard. That puts our Rent of the Week at $ 350 a month below average for the area. There is even more agreement if you plan to share – $ 1K for each roommate!
Greater disadvantage: There is no floor plan on the list for this Bushwick 2BR, so it’s hard to say how the individual spaces fit together. This makes it difficult to determine whether any of the outer spaces pictured on the list are actually private to this unit. In addition, while both baths are very nicely done, one has a traditional tub / shower combo and the other has a glass, standing shower. The lack of a tub can bother some.
