This rental is actually a small detached house in Throggs Neck. The house itself has 2 bedrooms, a bathroom, a living room and a kitchen. There is also a finished basement with a bedroom and an additional bathroom.
It's a small house, but $1000 is rather cheap for this space. Throggs Neck is pretty residential, and there aren't as many apartment buildings as in the rest of the BoogieDown. An added bonus is that this house comes with parking for one car. This fact should not be underestimated, especially in Throggs neck where the car is king.
The 6 train is on the other side of the Hutch and the Bruckner, so you'd be busing it if the car thing wasn't a reality.
