With the L train shutdown looming, some of the best rental finds are those in parts of Williamsburg that have easy access to another train. Like this new 45-unit building at 46 Cook Street that’s just two blocks from the M and J trains at Flushing Avenue but still a quick walk to cool ‘spots like Roberta’s, Sweet Science, and the Well. Even better, 14 middle-income units at the new, 12-story rental just came online through the city’s affordable housing lottery. Available to New Yorkers earning 130 percent of the area median income, they range from $2,081/month one-bedrooms to $2,888/month three-bedrooms.
