Descriptions of 249 Ocean Pkwy

This bright residence features a nice bathroom with modern styling, bamboo flooring throughout, plenty of closet space, a kitchen equipped with stainless steel appliances (including a dishwasher and built-in microwave) granite counters and a little eating nook. Looking for quality space in Kensington with an elevator at an affordable price. Alex Robayo (Jan 2014)
This stately pre-war building sits on picturesque Ocean Parkway, whose tree-lined greenway path leads to Prospect Park and Coney Island. Building features elevator, laundry room, and an on-site superintendent. Dining, shopping, and the F/G trains are all nearby on Church Avenue. Christopher Duran (Jan 2013)
This landlord does not allow guarantors or cosigners, no extra security to make up for bad credit, etc. The building is well maintained with a small elevator, live-in super, and laundry room. 12% broker fee, 1st month rent and 1 month security due at lease signing. Liam Mccarthy (Apr 2013)
Green trees line the street and the F and G trains are just a few blocks away. Natasha Rubirosa (Aug 2013)
