Listing of the Day: Parkchester Rental

2037A Westchester Avenue, 3 Bedrooms - $1400/month

This unit is in new construction that I guess is technically a block or so out of Parkchester proper (meaning it is not part of the complex surrounding the oval), but the price is right and the proximity to Parkchester's amenities is pretty attractive.

If you were to chop this up and have roomies, your rent would only be $467/month. If you need the space as a young or growing family, but haven't saved up a down payment to buy, this might a decent, affordable, spacious option.

Here's the Parkchester spiel:

Parkchester is often called a city within a city, and this is an apartment within (kind of, really on the outskirts of) 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.

Parkchester has tons shopping, chief of which are its own Macy's and a Starbucks. 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 with enough space that you can actually afford with or without roommates or a large inheritance or parental subsidy, check out this apartment and nabe.
