For previous installments of the top ten most popular rentals, we looked at listings in Manhattan, but this week, we head to Brooklyn. Our friends at StreetEasy compiled the list based on pageview data from the last seven days. Here now, the most popular Brooklyn rental listings, which, on the whole, are much nicer than the popular listings in Manhattan.
10) 70 Remsen Street, 10A, Brooklyn Heights
First up, we have a lovely 1BR/1BA co-op just a few blocks from the Brooklyn Heights promenade. The asking rent was recently reduce by $250 to $3,000, and the place comes fully furnished as a one-year sublet. It has built-in bookshelves, hardwood floors, and a windowed kitchen that looks out over a half-sized wall to the living room.
9) 669 10th Street, Park Slope
"You will love the timeless stunning woodwork and the over sized antic [sic] mirror," reads the listing for this 400-square-foot studio. You will probably not love the pink-tiled bathroom or minuscule kitchen. Rent is $1,695.
8) 269 Prospect Place, Prospect Heights
At $1,500 per month, this Prospect Heights studio is the cheapest apartment on this list, but it's also the second worst (the above Park Slope unit looks crappier). The brokerbabble says it's "renovated," but that claim seems dubious. Though it does have nice-looking floors.
7) 30 Monroe Place, Brooklyn Heights
In Brooklyn Heights, there's a "super quiet and convenient" 2BR/1BA listed for $3,450/month. It has hardwood floors, a dishwasher, and the photos show that both bedrooms can fit quite a bit of furniture.
6) 404 Bond Street, Carroll Gardens
In the LEED-certified condo Third + Bond, a 1,155-square-foot two-bedroom unit is up for rent at $4,500 per month. There's no fee, and the apartment has a 150-square-foot private rooftop deck (though that's not pictured in the listing).
5) 258 Richardson Street, Williamsburg
A 2BR/1.5BA unit in southeast Williamsburg just had its rent reduced by $100 to an even $3,000. Listing photos show a balcony, eat-in kitchen, and a weirdly placed metal pole.
4) 109 Butler Street, Boerum Hill
This recently renovated 2BR/2BA unit is located in a two-family townhouse that sold last year. It's the garden level, so there's access to the back patio, and it has a new kitchen, hardwood floors, and exposed brick. Rent is $3,450.
3) 99 Kingsland Avenue, Williamsburg
Located in one of the many North Brooklyn buildings built within the last decade, this no-fee 1BR/1BA looks pretty nice. Rent is $2,200, and the unit has a Juliette balcony, while the building has a shared backyard and rooftop deck.
2) 109 Luquer Street, Carroll Gardens
In southern Carroll Gardens near convergence of the Gowanus and Brooklyn-Queens Expressways, this one-bedroom is listed for $1,750/month. It's located on the top-floor of a townhouse, and it has "tin/plaster combo hi-ceilings" and an eat-in kitchen.
1) 1130 Ocean Avenue, Ditmas Park
The week's most popular listing is also the newest listing in this round-up. It's a 1BR/1BA with a private patio asking $1,900 per month. It has an in-unit washer/dryer, and it's located in the newish condo building Waterfalls on Ocean that launched in 2010. Accoring to the brokerbabble, this unit has never been occupied.
