Furnished room for rent near Prospect Park

Rooms for Rent



Kensington, Brooklyn


July 15, 2024


F Train (@ Ditmas Ave); Q Train (@ Courtelyou Road)

Hello and thank you for stopping by. I currently have a furnished room for rent in Kensington (Brooklyn) for $1,100/month plus utilities (WiFi and ConEd). No lease. Month-to-Month. See photos attached.

The apartment is a short 5-minute walk from the F train (Ditmas stop) and a 15-minute walk to the Q train (Cortelyou stop),

It's also a 15-minute walk to Prospect Park, 3 short subway stops to Prospect Park, and about a 45 minute commute to Midtown Manhattan.

Additional info:

• The common living room is spacious and gets wonderful daylight.
• Your room would be in the back of the apartment and therefore extremely quiet and peaceful.
• Apt has WiFi, fresh linens and towels, and a well-stocked kitchen.
• There's a laundry room in the basement of the building.

More about the neighborhood…

• Kensington is a family-oriented neighborhood that boasts one of the city’s most ethnically-diverse communities (being comprised of Bengali, Russian, Mexican, Pakistani, Ukranian, Polish, and Hasidic Jewish residents).

To get a better sense of the area, check out these articles in AM New York and the New York Times:



Some nearby neighborhood amenities include a CVS Pharmacy, a few bodegas, yummy pizza (Randazzo's), a vegan restaurant (Ginger), an Uzbek restaurant (Tandir), a Central Asian restaurant (Taj Kebob), a butcher shop, dry cleaner, and the requisite 99 cent stores.

If you walk about 10-15 minutes to Ditmas Park, you will find a small but lively bar and restaurant scene. Here are some places I recommend there:

1) Milk + Honey Coffee Shop: http://www.yelp.com/biz/milk-and-honey-cafe-brooklyn-2
2) Café Madeline: https://www.yelp.com/biz/cafe-madeline-brooklyn
3) STEMS/Sycamore (Flowershop/Bar w/ a nice outdoor space):http://www.sycamorebrooklyn.com/

10) Farmer’s Market on Sundays in front of the library on Cortelyou Road

Other Thing to Note:

Although this may not be the 'hippest' of neighborhoods, I take pride in living in a section of Brooklyn that has not been gentrified.

Bottom line...if you want an affordable and authentic Brooklyn experience, you’d probably be a good fit!

House Rules:

• Do your part to keep the apartment clean and tidy.
• No parties.
• No unannounced guests or visitors.
• No drugs/smoking.
• No shoes in the house.
• No pets.

I hope to welcome you soon to my home.
