Mediterranean-style tile sets apart this studio apartment in Park Slope, Brooklyn. The small taupe squares organized throughout the apartment would have a more staunch effect if not for the warm wood oak detailing in the wooden shutters above the queen-sized bed and modern furniture. The various shades of grey and subdued terra cotta orange color build an elegant atmosphere.
This studio apartment in on the second floor of a townhouse on 7th Avenue and Carroll Street is designed with intention. Built-in shelves are arranged around the apartment and filled with necessities like linens and dishes which add value to otherwise empty space. The open kitchen is a charming butter yellow shade with compact appliances including a gas stove, washer, and dryer and granite countertops. Finally, the apartment includes private access to a fully furnished patio fenced in with lush plants and equipped with a grill and room to entertain friends for a summer picnic.
The apartment is set in the heart of Park Slope, a neighborhood with a very strong community. You will see people stopping to say ‘hello’ to one another which gives this NYC neighborhood a uniquely small town quality. The avenues of this neighborhood are dotted with cafes, specialty shops, and fine casual restaurants. The aptly named Community Bookstore (36ft/11m) and recreation store Gear-to-Go Outfitters (354ft/110m) further down the avenue are both excellent small businesses to support and discover your local surroundings. Only two blocks away from the apartment is Prospect Park (0.4mi/650km) which is host to many outdoor concerts and activities as well as a well-maintained loop around the park for cycling or running. You can buy top quality produce at the zealous Park Slope Food Coop (0.2mi/300m), but only when you volunteer for three hours each week which will further entwine you with the residents of Park Slope.
The apartment is accessible to the B/Q subway lines at 7th Avenue/Flatbush Ave (0.4mi/650m) and 2/3 trains at Grand Army Plaza (0.5mi/750m) which allow access to other parts of New York City.

The apartment is a very small studio. The nicest thing about it is the patio, which is not useful in the winter, alas. Rosa is a very nice landlady and the apartment is basic, but comfortable.
