Wait.... you have a drop ceiling in the bathroom? Man, haven't seen one of those in I dunno how long


Guess you only live in classy places, welcome to Gentrification Landlording 101. At one point the 2nd floor was vacant and the 1st floor tenant call and says it's raining in their bathroom. I go up there to the 3rd floor asking what the hell is going on! I get: "What are you talking about, MY kids would never flood the bathroom floor!". At that point I replaced the 1st floor's destroyed bath ceiling panels with fake tin. Thank God those tenants left, another fun story.

Drop ceilings were popular with slumlords in all rooms because it was cheaper than fixing the leaky roof and destroyed plaster.

Yes, that's a unit that I had to rent more or less "as is" shortly after I purchased the building while I renovated an uninhabitable unit, that one bath photo is from. You gotta do what you gotta do.

Finally took a look to see what the subject actually was. Yeah, cheap kitchen reno. I've been upgrading from that kitchen in units that rent for half the price. Never mind the white appliances, no microwave/hood? No granite or even a tile backsplash? Not even a pullout faucet? Undercab lighting is dirt cheap these days.

I also hate the trendy gray walls. I paint all my rental walls a cheery yellowish off-white, a stock Moore color called Navajo White.

Don't even get me started on the cheap bathroom, here's the bath in one of my $1750 heights units. It probably barely cost more, just took some caring what it looked like. I f**king hate those "cultured marble" vanity tops.

There's a hood over the stove, but not an OTR microwave, just one of the cheap $40 range hoods. That said, yes, it all looks very cheap. I hate that purple color in the bedroom/den, but i'm a guy, so maybe it's meant for a woman (or just a dude with very different taste than me. shrug). btw, that fake tin ceiling in your bathroom also looks awful to me, but shrug, you're the one that spent like $8 a sq foot on them :D

I think some "hating" may be warranted because the guy didn't pay for an ad like everyone else.

There is literally nothing to compare between the two; not that I'd want to live in the building because the neighborhood is non-existent, I will say that when you forget about the neighborhood, Cast Iron Lofts is a full-service property with tons of amenities, brand new construction, modern open layouts, and concrete between floors (great sound insulation), and a leasing team that isn't emotionally involved in the property. No comparison at all with a renovated, wood frame construction row house that requires you to deal directly with a landlord who you'd have a personal relationship with (often not a good thing).

If they can get $3,000, more power to them. From the responses on here, it seems they might.

I walk by that place several times a week. That block was hit hard by Sandy. If the lower level of the unit is above ground level, then it should be fine. Can't really say whether that rent is high or not without knowing the square footage. One thing to consider, though, when renting on that block: there's a large construction site right now where the parking lot was.

Wow, I'm jealous of the pricing critique they're getting here! I'd love to see it for my rentals. Webmaster must be on vacation, he usually deletes these ads.

Agreed - it's a steal.

Duplex, yard, w&d, relatively modern, owner occupied (which some see as a neg... but I have always seen as a positive). Think about the fact that two people could easily live in this space and split the rent at 1500 pp... that's cheap.

I'm convinced people just post stuff like this on here to troll the same handful of posters who cannot resist a chance to provide their unsolicited opinion even though no one asked for it. I can't wait to read the inevitable twenty responses to this listing about all the hypothetical apartments that are better and cheaper than this one.

If you take a look at the pictures attached to the listing you would see that it IS sad looking. It may sound lovely, but it definitely does not look that way.

Likewise, based on those pictures, this was a cheap renovation (cheap cabinets, appliances, etc) and for that kind of money (or, a bit more) you can get a much better unit in a modern building with better amenities and much better finishes.


All the rooms look narrow and claustrophobic, for that price you can also find a place with light and views and 2 full baths.

Sad yard, big rent and the map shows it at Bright and Barrow which had HOW MANY FEET of water during Sandy? At least this unit is the upper 2 floors, but I'd bet that place floods regularly...
