Two Bedroom Co-Op in Sheepshead Bay
Price: $339,000
Viewing: August 31, 1 p.m. – 4 p.m.
Location: 2626 Homecrest Avenue
Description: There’s a lot of closet space and the kitchen, while not huge, can hold a small table with chairs for those lonely meals.
Contact: Viktoria Dubrynskaya, (347) 251-4343

A Ranch Home With a White Picket Fence in Sheepshead Bay
Price: $309,000
Viewing: September 7, 1 p.m. – 3:00 p.m
Location: 3800 Brown Street
Description: The realtor asks why live under the rules of a Co-Op when there are places like this on the market? This two bedroom abode is technically its own individual house but the inside is much like a Co-Op. Mainly, small and cramped. But that’s the price you pay for liberation.
Contact: Anthony Alotta, Fillmore, (718) 253-4040

Three Bedroom Condo in Sheepshead Bay
Price: $499,000
Viewing: August 30, 11 a.m. — 1:00 p.m.
Location: 3814 Shore Parkway
Description: All of the rooms are tastefully furnished and decorated. There’s even a few different colors on the walls. Let’s just hope that if you buy this three bedroom condo they don’t remove it all (and rip down the walls) and say, “just kidding, nothing in this country is free.” That’s what dad would do.

Three Bedroom Penthouse Condo in Manhattan Beach
Price: $1,075,000
Viewing: August 17, 12 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.
Location: West End Avenue
Description: There are more terraces than bedrooms. Also, the elevator opens directly into the apartment so, if you’d like, think of the elevator as another room, or perhaps a mobile walk-in closet.
Contact: Katherine Pontone, Bright Horizons, (718) 615-3054

Two Family Home in Sheepshead Bay
Price: $679,000
Viewing: August 17, 1 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.
Location: 1950 East 24th Street
Description: This house is “detached” and also has a “detached” garage. What was this house once attached to and who felt the need to remove it? Perhaps, the realtor means that the house and garage are emotionally detached and therefore cool headed. Having anthropomorphized this house enough, go check it out this Sunday.

Two Floor House in Sheepshead Bay
Price: $1,299,000
Viewing: August 17, 1 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.
Location: 1760 East 19th Street
Description: The basement is semi-finished and the second floor is “a 3 or 4 bedroom duplex.” What’s with the flip-flopping? Mid-term elections aren’t upon us yet so I say there’s no reason for that kind of behavior. The attic has one lone bed with windows behind it, lending it a very royal atmosphere.
Contact: Lucy Ciocia, Fillmore, (917) 746-5226

Two Bedroom Condo in Gravesend
Price: $387,000
Viewing: All weekend, 3:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Location: 526 Avenue Z
Description: Do you wish to own property but are too attached to living extremely close to strangers and walking up several flights of stairs? Well then you can own this thing called a condo and it’s basically buying property that doesn’t actually touch the ground. There are two bathrooms and a balcony sprawled across 1,021 square feet.

Three Bedrooms in Sheepshead Bay
Price: $2,700
Location: Batchelder Street and Voorhies Avenue
Description: With high ceilings, many windows, a realtor that refers to himself in the third person and a balcony, this apartment is a catch. There’s also a cat in one of the pictures, hiding in a box. You wouldn’t have noticed this if I didn’t point it out and now your life is that much better for seeing the cat.
Contact: Albert, Citi Habitats, (917) 692-6628

Three Bedrooms in Sheepshead Bay
Price: $2,300
Location: 1205 Avenue Y
Description: This apartment has French doors, giving it an open atmosphere. There’s two bottles of wine in the fridge (amount unknown), a bottle of orange juice (full) and a half-empty water bottle. All coming together to make a great apartment.
Contact: Coldwell Banker, (718) 621-2000

One Bedroom in Gravesend
Price: $1,600
Location: Ocean Parkway
Description: Using the word “flooded” in a positive way might not be the best idea for an Evacuation Zone A neighborhood. But still the realtor tries and for that you have to give her credit. And the realtor also writes that it’s rent stabilized.

Three Bedrooms in Sheepshead Bay
Price: $2,700
Location: Batchelder Street
Description: With an elevated kitchen and a balcony adorned with flowers, this apartment is the best Sheepshead Bay has to offer – except proximity to the subway. The rooms all look very spacious and there is also parking available.
Contact:Albert Attias, Citi Habitats, (917) 692 6628

One Bedroom in Sheepshead Bay
Price: $1,425
Location:3280 Nostrand Avenue
Description: This apartment comes with all the embellishments of modern living. It’s cable ready, there’s an air-conditioning unit and the bedroom and kitchen are their own separate rooms. There’s even a doorknob on all of the doors!
Contact: Diana Abramov, DSJ Realty, (917) 804-7473

One Bedroom in Midwood
Price: $1,500
Location: Kings Highway
Description: The foyer has “extra bookshelf space.” The implication is that there is also bookshelf space somewhere else in the apartment or that there’s a bookshelf in the foyer. Either way, I like. But what I especially like is the idea of giving the grand tour to friends and nonchalantly mentioning the “extra bookshelf space in the foyer.”

Two Bedrooms and Bathrooms in Sheepshead Bay
Price: $1,950
Location: 2797 Bragg Street
Description: This apartment has many claims to fame. There’s a lot of “trendy” bars in the neighborhood and it’s a “walker’s paradise.” But the true jewel here is the green plastic chair in the laundry room. It’s something to marvel at and all should be in thrall of its convenience and design.
Contact: Omar Dyer, Danrich Family Homes, (347) 785-0140

One Bedroom in Brighton Beach
Price: $1,750
Location: Ocean Parkway
Description: This apartment is located near the beach and according to the realtor it’s also near the Q train. There’s also parking available and the building has a pool. Just hope that these features aren’t one in the same.
Contact: Megan Kernan, DSA Realty, (917) 231-6289

One Bedroom in Gravesend
Price: $1,350
Location: 49 Nixon Court
Description: With the bold claim that this is the largest one bedroom in the Beach Haven Complex, it can’t be helped but to awe at the amazing effort shown by this realtor for checking each and every apartment unit in the complex. There is also 24-hour emergency service in the building, which might just mean there’s a fire-escape and if so, good job following regulations.

One Bedroom in Sheepshead Bay
Price: $1,300
Location: Ocean Parkway
Description: Here is a “Doorman” apartment, not to be confused with an apartment that has a doorman. I’m too much of a plebeian to understand the delicate subtleties between these two differences. But believe “the” realtor. You have to be sponsored by the co-op, so make sure to elevate yourself past the plebeian level.
Contact: Mark Benson, Bond New York, (646) 645-4400

One Bedroom in Midwood
Price: $1,150
Location: Avenue O
Description: This apartment is standard in the fact that it has a small bathroom that passes as a “full” bathroom and hardwood floors. The realtor writes that the kitchen “will be renovated.” When? Before someone moves in or a month after signing the lease? Here at Sheepshead Bites, we ask the tough questions.
Contact: Adrianna Sitner, David West Properties, (347) 346-1508

Three Bedrooms in Brighton Beach
Price: $2,400
Location: Brightwater Court
Description: The bathroom in this apartment has new tiles but it looks like the wood floors haven’t been replaced. The kitchen has cooking space, instead of the usual ultra-narrow spot with barely enough space for a fridge.

Two Luscious Bedrooms in Sheepshead Bay
Price: $1,888
Location: Brigham Street and Emmons Avenue
Description: This is the kind of realtor who has you in mind, like a considerate lover. And in this spirit, he writes, “To make best use of your time, give me an idea of what you’re looking for.” He then tells you that if you love this place, act “swiftly” because “its quite disheartening to be emotionally invested in a space and miss it by a small margin.” And this gentleman won’t let you get emotionally invested in something just to watch you lose it. I would continue to describe the apartment but that’s all the time we have for this segment.
Contact: Hannibal Collins, Kian Realty, (347) 985-0021

One Bedroom in Brighton Beach’s Trump Towers
Price: $1,500
Location: 44 Neptune Avenue
Description: This apartment is in a neighborhood that’s “full of life.” I’m wondering which neighborhoods are only half full with life, or completely vacant of life, but my deadlines prevent me from pondering such existential concerns for long. Also, there’s a balcony where you can take all this life in.
Contact: Ilona Vovk, Talk of the Town Realty, (718) 627-7500

Two Bedrooms in Sheepshead Bay
Price: $1,900
Location: East 17th Street between Avenue U and Avenue V
Description: With zoomed in shots of the bathroom sink and unusually low shots of the rooms, this realtor is either really into details or hiding the truth. Well we’re here to reveal the truth and tell you that this apartment has a dishwasher and dogs and cats are allowed. But you can’t have a ferret. But that’s not the realtor’s fault, it’s Giuliani’s.

One Bedroom in Midwood
Price: $1,675
Location: East 14th Street and Avenue O
Description: This realtor really knows how to tug at the desperate strings. He notes that this apartment has a new air-conditioner unit. But are you desperate enough to pay this rent?
Contact:Michael Facey, AptsandLofts, (718) 954-2216

Three Bedrooms in Gravesend
Price: $1,800
Location: Crawford Avenue and Coney Island Avenue
Description: This is one of those apartments where the kitchen just seems out of place, like someone just plopped it into a random room and was too lazy to put it somewhere else. There is a private parking spot included in the rent and the apartment is located on the third floor.
Contact: Peter Chang, (646) 778-2260

One “Super Affordable” Bedroom in Sheepshead Bay
Price: $1,550
Location: Brighton Second Street
Description: While this is a decent sized apartment, calling it not just affordable but super affordable seems like an exaggeration. Unless of course you’re a Manhattan banker looking for a beachside apartment. Dogs and cats are allowed.
Contact: Hans Gonzalez, Bond New York, (917) 539-9418

One Bedroom in Brighton Beach
Price: $1,450
Location: Coney Island Avenue and Oceana Drive West
Description: This apartment has a huge living and a not so huge kitchen. Seems like a fair trade-off unless you cook (stop making the rest of us feel bad).
Contact: Zuz Realty, (718) 513-3763

One Bedroom in Brighton Beach
Price: $1,550
Location: Brightwater Court
Description: Not only does this apartment have a kitchen, but it’s a “windowed-kitchen” and a living room with recessed lights. While we’re falsely enhancing the rooms, let’s also note that there’s a toileted-bathroom and bedroomed- bedroom.
Contact: Diana Zorovich, Citi Habitats, (646) 821-3698

One Bedroom in Midwood
Price: $1,250
Location: East 14th Street and Avenue P
Description: We’ve got a live-in super and an eat-in kitchen being sold by a highly motivated, high-tech realtor here. The bathroom has blue tiles with a matching toilet seat cover, giving you that pleasant bathroom experience you’ve been searching for all your life.
Contact: Zuz Realty, (718) 513-3763

One Bedroom on a Beach
Price: $1,850
Location: Brighton 14th Street
Description: Considering that this neighborhood has the word beach in it, any apartment here is considered to be on a beach. But how dare this realtor call our putrid sliver of beach “a” beach. This is “THE” beach. There is also no fee for this apartment.

Studio in Midwood
Price: $1,000
Location: Kings Highway
Description: How can a studio be “tucked away on a quiet tree lined street” but also have “public transit right outside your building”? Well, that’s the magic of a realtor. But the magic show doesn’t end there. Prospect Park is only “minutes away,” the realtor writes and then goes into a detailed description of the different birds, and bats, in the park. Powerful magic.
Contact: Lisa Diamond, Oxford Property Group, (718) 600-9433

Three Bedrooms in Private Home
Price: $1,600
Location: Gilmore Court
Description: While this apartment promises “huge” bedrooms, something we all hope for, they’re also “clean,” a truly lucky thing to have. Located on a very small block, Gilmore court is near Emmons Avenue. The realtor points out that the avenue is “famous” and you will have all the benefits of living near such fame, like shirtless old men meandering around in the summer.
Contact: Gulnora Nazarova, Continent Realty, (347) 210-2272

Three Bedrooms and “Closets Galore” in Manhattan Beach
Price: $2,900
Location: Amherst Street and Hampton Avenue
Description: Even with all my seasoned years (translation: months) I can’t figure out the jargon this realtor uses. So I will just present them to you here for your better judgement. There’s a modern EIK (possible translation: some kind of animal related to the elk? [Editor's note: It's an eat-in kitchen. What's wrong with you, Eric?]). And there’s also a C/A (possible translation: the opposite of an A/C [Editor's note: Okay, you got me.]).
Contact: Llarson, Cornerstone Real Estate, (718) 701-8470

Two Bedrooms in Gravesend
Price: $1,900
Location: Ocean Parkway and Avenue P
Description: At first glance, this apartment seems pretty standard, even on the nice side. There are new hardwood floors, a nice kitchen and large bedrooms but there are no windows in any of the pictures nor does the realtor mention them.
Contact: Sophia Kapassakis, Ardor New York Real Estate, (646) 266-7598
