Listing of the Day: Parkchester Rental

1503 Metropolitan Avenue, 1 Bedroom - $600/month

This is a one bedroom apartment in Parkchester, which is often called a city within a city, and this is an apartment within that city within a city - got that straight? Well, in any case, what was once a hidden secret is starting to be discovered and gobbled up.

At $600/month, I don't think you'd be able to rent something in Bratislava. And to be honest, Parkchester is a monster upgrade from Bratislava (no offense intended Bratislavans). It's even a monster upgrade from East New York or Bushwick (maybe a little offense intended -jk). In any case, this is a nice apartment in an established hood for only $600/month. Ditch the roomies and move to Parkchester.

Parkchester has tons of shopping, chief of which are its own Macy's and a Starbucks. You heard me people; Parkchester has a Starbucks. See the stuff you learn here at BoogieDowner. There is also a decent amount of public space to hang at, including the ovals of the complex proper and a few fountains. And who doesn't like fountains? Should we also mention that Parkchester is going to have Verizon FiOs soon too? Well, it will.

Parkchester was built under the same idea as Stuy-Town and Peter Cooper Village in Manhattan, and has the same self-sufficient aura. Parkchester is a safe and family friendly hood with decent transportation via the 6 train and bus service. So if you're looking to own an apartment and have enough money to go out, or just need a place you can actually afford without roommates or a large inheritance, check out this apartment and nabe.

Holy Cow! 1 Bedrooms in Parkchester are going for between $900-1,300. $600-$650 is the going rate for a share in an apartment. If this ad is for real, you could grab it, get a roommate, charge him or her the $600 and live rent free!

I wonder what the deal is...
