What/Where: 1BR, 2BA duplex rental on First Street between Bond and Hoyt in Carroll Gardens, priced at $2,550.
Looks Good, Right?: Sure, there are some curious renovation decisions (TV cut-out above the, uh, little doors) and backyard usage may be limited in the summer months due to the stench wafting from the nearby Gowanus Canal, but this is a spacious rental with a big home officeperfect for someone who works from home. Plus, there's a washer/dryer, decorative marble fireplace, radiant floors and a two-person Jacuzzi! Sexy time!
The Catch: Your mother was always worried about you ending up in an apartment with a bathtub in the kitchen, but what she didn't understand was they do things a little differently out in Brooklyn. About that Jacuzzi...
How the broker resisted adding "waterbed" to the amenities, we'll never know.
· Listing: 1st Street [Corcoran]
