Sitting on the second floor of a four-story building with a restored brownstone facade, this one-bedroom apartment at 940 Fulton Street overlooks a stretch populated by restaurants like Otway, B’klyn Burro, and Sisters, plus the Good Batch, one of the best pastry shops in the city. There’s a Key Food supermarket across the street and a “Mr. Fruit” grocery store, Mr. Melon, one block over. The closest train is the C at Clinton-Washington, a two-minute walk away.

Though there are similarly priced one-bedrooms on the market with a bit more square footage, this unit has large windows, high ceilings, and many historic details, including: an exposed-brick wall with the original inlay fireplace in the living room, reclaimed beams and columns in the bedroom, and foot-wide plank pine floors throughout. Meanwhile, the kitchen has been updated with a farmhouse sink and full-size Bosch stainless-steel appliances (including a dishwasher). The unit, which has monthly taxes and fees totaling $681, has one large closet in the bedroom and two smaller ones by the bathroom, plus a washer/dryer.
