So we’re guessing there are several kinds of people this rental listing will appeal to. First, if you’ve been planning to film your pilot episode of “Hipster Hoarders,” your search is over. Lovers of real industrial lofts, log cabins, treehouses, birdhouses, she sheds, cowboy camping, glamping or pods in your living room: This one will go fast!
In all seriousness, this 1,400 square foot three-bedroom (or whatever room you need!) loft that’s renting for $4,600 a month might not be a bargain, but it’s a decent amount of lovely Greenpoint space. And if you’re into lofts (and assuming this is actually a legal dwelling. Or a semi-legal dwelling with good karma), the possibilities are endless. This lovely loft is in a terrific neighborhood, near the waterfront and surrounded by cafes, quirky boutiques, bars both chic and chill, the ferry, the G train, picturesque streetscapes and lots of friendly neighbors in their super-cool cowboy-treehouse lofts. We’re hoping the current tenants have found a new dream home, because clearly this listing is an invitation to Live the Dream.
This way to curated chaos
Is this three-bedroom rental, at 311 Henry Street in Brooklyn Heights, cute enough for you? It’s located in a brick prewar building just north of Atlantic Avenue, so the apartment interior has plenty of prewar details as well. The rent of $4,400 a month is not all that bad given the amount of rooms and the prime Brooklyn Heights location. Seems like this apartment would serve well as a sophisticated, grownup roommate share.

One thing we can say about this apartment currently for rent at 215 Degraw Street (a.k.a. 56 Strong Place) in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn: The listing broker likes it. She writes, and we quote: “…this incredible 3 bedroom 3 bath duplex offers more to one lucky renter than this writer can ever hope to convey.” But she gives it a shot just the same, explaining that for a mere $8,750 a month, you can bag “The triple Crown of Rentals!” She says more, too, but let’s take a look at what’s causing all this excitement.
First, Landmark at Strong Place is a circa 1851 Gothic Revival church that was converted into a 23-unit condominium in 2010. So already it’s more interesting than your average apartment.
And there’s more! (this way)
