There’s never been an apartment so ideal for summertime. This three-bedroom rental comes from 87 Hudson Avenue, a development in the quaint Brooklyn neighborhood of Vinegar Hill, situated just north of DUMBO. Over an upper and lower floor there are multiple skylights, two outdoors spaces, even interior glass walls to let the light flood through. You’ll need sunglasses before renting this pad, which is now on the market asking $6,000 a month.

The lower level holds the open living room, dining room and kitchen. High ceilings, skylights and windows everywhere set the theme for the apartment, which is bright throughout. All that sunlight is offset with fun bursts of color–like the red kitchen. And an open staircase brings in more light from above.

Right off the living room is the private garden, a low-key and lush space that hugs the lower level.

The glass walls above the staircase keep light streaming through. Up here is the bedroom floor, with three bedrooms, two bathrooms and an office. There are tons of details that give each bedroom personality–exposed brick, built-in shelving, and nooks for desks and toys.

Even the bathrooms are decked out with quirky details, one with decorative tiles and the other with exposed brick.

The upstairs comes with access to a terrace that will soon be renovated into a roof deck, according to the listing. Vinegar Hill is one of the quaintest neighborhoods of Brooklyn–with its quiet cobblestone streets and historic townhouses–and we think we’ve found one of the quaintest apartments in the whole place.
