In a picturesque corner building in a laid-back part of south Park Slope just a few blocks from the park, this full-floor condominium at 341 15th Street seems nearly perfect; it even comes with a private parking garage. If you’re into current design trends, flawlessly executed, you’ll want to have a look. Asking $1.395 million, the layout of this pre-war home is not only generous with plenty of closets, but there’s even room for a third bedroom.

“Brooklyn is a potent idea as well as a place,” according to Susanna Briselli, who explains in the Brooklyn Eagle that the borough’s name “summons vivid images and associations.” Briselli, who is an artist and photographer, suggests this potent chemistry is a compelling enough reason to create an enormous free-standing illuminated sign that reads “Brooklyn!” The massive work would be used to draw in more visitors and increase value, placed where the soon-to-be removed “Watchtower” sign in Brooklyn Heights now stands, or at another highly visible site such as Pier 7.
This quintessentially lovely Park Slope apartment on the parlor floor of a gorgeous historic townhouse at 369 Sixth Avenue is available for sublet without co-op board approval, which may just set the stage for the easy life in this sunny Brooklyn home. An in-unit washer-dryer, a nice big bay window, a recent renovation and a tree-lined street add to the idyllic picture.
The Brooklyn neighborhood of Ditmas Park has made a name for itself because of the freestanding Victorian homes lining its suburban-like streets, but here’s a two-bedroom, pre-war condo up for sale in the ‘nabe, what the listing calls “truly a rare find” for the area. It’s asking $450,000 at 2108 Dorchester Road, a 1912 building with 48 units. Inside, high ceilings and three exposures make for a cheery, bright apartment.

This Williamsburg property comes from a row of townhomes along North 9th Street originally built in the 1870s for dockworkers. Those days are long gone, and the three-bedroom home is now asking $1.995 million. The interior, admittedly, isn’t stunning–as the listing says, you’ll need to “bring your architect and/or designer to realize this property’s full potential.” But the house does come with a prime ‘burg location, air rights to build an addition, and a wonderfully deep, lush backyard garden.
The listing calls this two-bedroom condo on the lower two floors of a converted milk factory at 395 Smith Street “the most unique hideaway in Carroll Gardens,” and we’ll agree there’s some extremely creative use of space at work. Besides that, there are two stories, two bedrooms, and two baths for a reasonable-sounding $875,000 in an expensive and lovely neighborhood.
6sqft’s ongoing series “My sqft” checks out the homes of New Yorkers across all the boroughs. Our latest interior adventure brings us to the Williamsburg apartment of Bang Bang tattoo artist Balazs Bercsenyi. Want to see your home featured here? Get in touch!
Despite being one of the most in-demand tattoo artists working today, if you were to have sought out Balazs Bercsenyi several years ago, you would have found him washing dishes in a London restaurant. The native Hungarian, who now boasts more than 250,000 Instagram followers and a client roster that includes numerous bold-faced names, was “discovered” when another tattoo artist encountered him drawing the intricate, fine line designs that he today adorns to the bodies of a select few. With a simple “You should become a tattoo artist!” uttered by his newfound friend, Balazs quickly found himself on a trajectory that would propel him to the top of his industry and into a coveted position at the renowned Bang Bang studio in Little Italy. Now, with a year-and-a-half of NYC living under his belt, Balazs is making a home in Williamsburg. Ahead, he gives 6sqft a tour of his 1,150-square-foot Brooklyn apartment where bohemian vibes and his penchant for organic forms echo throughout.
This studio apartment at One Brooklyn Bridge Park looks straight off the set of “Mad Men.” The owner managed to pack plenty of mid-century modern design into just 589 square feet while creating an inventive layout that creates some private spaces within the apartment. Best yet, the studio comes with a big wall of windows, a common feature throughout the Brooklyn Heights development, which leads out to a private terrace. After last selling in 2013 for $672,045, the studio is now on the market asking $810,000.
