Ocean Parkway at Ditmas Avenue: 4th Floor studio with views looking north in a pre-war coop elevator building with live-in super, laundry room, fitness room and beautiful lobby. The apartment has a 12 x 18 main room, nice sized entrance foyer with 2 large closets and a linen closet ouside the renovated full bathroom with very cool archway, pedestal sink and cream tiles, and a separate windowed galley kitchen with plenty of counter/cabinet space. The apartment is a 10-15 minute walk to Prospect Park or Cortelyou Road in Ditmas Park, and a 5 minute walk to the F train at Ditmas Avenue.

This apartment requires board approval, which is basically the same as a rental application + letters of reference with an interview. If the board approves the application there is a $300 processing fee, but the owner will deduct that from the 1st month's rent. There is also an extra $500 move in/out deposit, refunded like security after moveout. The board values stability; the owner requires excellent credit + 40-50k income, and the whole process should take 1-2 weeks.
