Mayor de Blasio’s Park Slope clapboard house, located at 442 11th Street, has hit the rental market today, asking $4,975 a month. The 100-year-old, three-story home has a private backyard (complete with herb garden and crab apple tree) and three bedrooms…but only one bathroom, which is up on the third floor. Chiara and Dante definitely had a hand in painting their bedrooms (photos and video after the break), and the dwelling retains some of its original, historic details.
It may not be Gracie Mansion, but according to its broker, this mayoral abode offers a lot for it’s price.

The ground-floor living room has newly refinished oak floors and a brick hearth with hand-painted tile. A second living space on the parlor floor has 12-inch, wide-plank floors, an original decorative marble mantle, and exposed brick walls.
The eat-in kitchen offers plenty of cabinet space and features a spacious pantry. Off the kitchen is mudroom, which leads to the charming backyard garden, which has a tiered flagstone patio and perennial and evergreen plantings.
The kids’ rooms are fun and outgoing, quite fitting for Chiara and Dante’s personalities. There is also the master bedroom and the possibility of converting a spare room into a fourth bedroom.
Considering some Manhattan studios are renting for close to $4,000 a month, we have to agree with the broker that this prime Park Slope rental is quite the deal.
