It's my job to find the best apartments, and hand deliver it to you on a stainless steel platter. (like the appliances!)

I've done it again.  I know this apartment is decadent and opulent, but you don't have to take my word for it.  Just look at the pictures!  Spacious, lovely, sunkissed, modern black and white bathroom, stainless steel appliances and dishwasher.  

And the area!

 If you haven't met...let me introduce you to the Kensington neighborhood!  Beautiful, historic, it is nestled right in the middle of Brooklyn!  You have Prospect Park on one side and Ditmas Park on the other.  The perfect position to experience the most historic and famous parts of Brooklyn.   Stately architecture, lovely, tree lined streets, both postwar apartment and the gorgeous cathedral style of the prewar buildings.  The cafes and shop are quaint and the parks and environment is sheer BEAUTY.
