Rental of the Day: 402 Monroe Street, #2

BrownstonerNovember 27, 2013
This one-bedroom in Bed Stuy is spacious and freshly renovated. The kitchen has new stainless steel appliances and a decent amount of cabinet space, and the bathroom looks pretty standard. But this apartment’s selling point is definitely its size: The living room and bedroom are both very large for a one-bedroom. So large, in fact, that you could probably easily split the bedroom into two to offset the rent.

And a few original details survived the reno, like the hardwood floors and a little bit of ornate woodwork above the doorway to the bedroom. The only downside is that it’s about nine blocks to the C train at Kingston-Throop and 10 blocks to the A/C at Nostrand. What do you think of it for $1,800 a month?
