i absolutely love my apartment and the area. i definitely recommend living here but finding a nice and affordable place is definitely not easy. craigslist is a joke nowadays and it’s really difficult to find something without using a broker (which is what we had to do). my bf and i pay $2,100 total for our 1br with a private backyard. it’s a steal for the area tbh. the places right around us go for $2,300-$2,700.
i suggest taking a walk around park slope and popping into one of the many real estate agencies in the area. you can meet with a realtor and discuss what you’re looking for and then they can find the places for you!
