A one-bedroom apartment in Mayor de Blasio’s private Park Slope home is back on the market. As Politico reports, the prior tenants of the row house at 384 11th Street have moved out, opening the upstairs apartment for non-smokers without pets for $1,825 per month. The listing describes the unit as having a “comfortable, sun-filled, and flexible layout.”

The apartment features a separate living and dining area which is separated from the kitchen with a pass-through window. The mayor and his wife Chirlane McCray have owned the two-family house since 2004, and de Blasio’s late mother formerly lived there. In addition to this property, he owns another building on the same street at 442 11th Street. This was his primary residence before he moved to Gracie Mansion in 2014 and it was previously listed for $4,975 a month.

The apartment currently up for rent previously cost $1,800 a month until de Blasio raised it by $25 in the summer of 2015, an increase of 1.4 percent. The mayor received criticism for increasing his rent because he simultaneously was promoting a rent freeze for one-year leases from the city’s Rent Guidelines Board. Since it is too small, the house cannot be part of the state’s rent stabilization program and cannot be subjected to regulations imposed by the Board.

According to de Blasio spokesperson Austin Finan: “The mayor and the first lady are putting their longtime Park Slope property up for rent. They hope the future tenants will enjoy the home and the neighborhood as they have for so many years.”
