Show Me Yours: 1-Bedroom on Hoyt

SHOW ME YOURS is a recurring column in which we do two things: show you Park Slope real estate (and a few from nearby neighborhoods!), and tell you how much it is. That's pretty much it!

Here's our latest victim Show Me Yours-erwho lives just down the avenues from proper Park Slope in nearby Carroll Gardens:

  • Location:  Hoyt Street between 1st and 2nd
  • Type: 1 Bedroom with bonus room affectionately known as "the 6X9""
  • Rent or Own: Rent
  • Cost: $1600 (best deal in town)
  • What year did you move into this place? late 2010
  • Square Footage: 550
  • How Did You Find This Place: My wife and I were sitting in the car at the Fairway Parking lot trying to calm ourselves after another apartment fell through.  We'd been searching for six months.  Maybe it was shot nerves or over-caffeination, but I spilled my coffee all over myself and the front seat.  My wife used the Village Voice to mop up the errant Starbucks and spied a tiny ad (1"X1") for our apartment! 
  • Amenities: heat, shelter, water
  • Who Calls this Place Home: A music teacher/writer and a photographer.
  • What’s really good about this joint:  Brownstones have an old New York charm which is not lost on our little building (circa 1865).  The location is great.  We're walking distance to tons of restaurants, bars, and of course Park Slope. 
  • What’s really bad about this joint:  Well, I really hate to complain.....but the fridge is in the living room and the bathroom is an offensive shade of tan-ish/pink.
  •  

    Of course, we're gonna need submissions to continue to make this shit not boring, so if you've got a Park Slope pad that you want to share, send photos and apartment info (location, cost of rent/mortgage, amenities, your occupation and answers to questions above) to effedinparkslope at gmail dot com.

    We're not looking to show off killer design or ridiculously expensive furniture...so don't feel intimidated if your place isn't in next month's Elle Decor. In fact, your place can be a total shitbox. It's really all about keeping track of how much apartments cost around here and what you get for your money.  Of course you can remain anonymous if you want, thus avoiding all of the stalkerazzi that would likely result from your brush with greatness.

    KIDDING!

    MOSTLY!
