DUMBO (Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass) certainly has its share of luxury apartments for rent. We found a 1 bedroom, 1 bath apartment on Washington St for around $3725 per month. But, did you know you can get the same size apartment for a little less money if you go about a mile and a half South of DUMBO to Fort Greene?
One of the most historic neighborhoods in Brooklyn, Fort Greene was named after General Nathanael Greene. General Greene oversaw the construction of fort in the area during the Revolutionary War.
300 Ashland Place in Fort Geeene is a luxury apartment building in the Brooklyn Cultural District. You can visit the library and view an art exhibit without leaving the property. Close by you can see Artist on Stage from the local dance studio, they perform at the BAM Harvey Theater. The luxury complex, managed by Two Trees Management, not only has luxury accomodations, but also top of the line conveniences. A short list of these would be a concierge desk, a doorman, bike storage, and a parking garage. If you are the physically fit type, you can take advantage of the health club. If you are more of a zen type, you can take advantage of the yoga space within the health club, or take it to the rooftop deck which has a place for outdoor yoga. If you just want to relax, go to the 29th floor and enjoy the resident lounge.
For about $300 less than that 1 bedroom in DUMBO, 300 Ashland Place has a 1 bedroom, 1 bath apartment available for $3425 per month. At the entry way of the apartment, to your left is a closet, the washer/dryer and the bathroom. A few steps into the unit and to your right is the kitchen. The kitchen has stainless steel appliances, Caesarstone and stainless steel countertops, and an in-sink garbage disposal. I suppose you could get a small dinette set, but that may get a little crowded.The floorplan is open, so from the kitchen you have direct access to the living room. The living room has LED energy efficient track lighting, and large ceiling-height windows with solar shades. The bedroom is a nice size, 10’6″ x 13’10”, and has a relatively big closet. The windows in the bedrooms have black out shades. A couple of other features would be the keyless electronic apartment access, and the white oak hardwood floors
