We Pay $2,700 For A 2-Bedroom In Brooklyn— Here’s How Big It Is

“My husband and I have lived in Bed-Stuy for the past six years, and we’ve lived in this apartment 1.5 years. We really love our community, and this place is only one block over from our old apartment. And this rent in this part of Bed-Stuy is just a steal. I saw it, and I thought, I can walk 10 feet to see this apartment. So it happened extremely fast. There wasn’t a broker’s fee, we paid one month’s rent as a security deposit, and then a $500 security deposit for the dog.”
