HIGH RENT DISTRICT

I often wonder what people are paying rent-wise up on the avenue for the apartments directly on top of the stores.  Been hearing the numbers are pretty high these days.

“What’s up with that?” (A Saturday Night Live reference)

Anyone have an idea what a two or three bedroom apartment goes for on ‘Prospect Park West’ between say, the circle and 19th street?

We lived on the top floor over Bob’s; I think we paid $300 a month.  This was back in the 80’s of course. I think our rent got as high as $750 or something around there before we moved out in early 90’s.

    I would guess rents on the Avenue would be in the $1,800-$2,000 per month range which is lower than the rest of the neighborhood . If you look at Craigslist or Trulia and put in Windsor Terrace as the location,you will notice most 2 bedroom apartments in the $2,500 per month range if they are located from the Ave to 11th ave. Ninth Ave cost a little less because it is noisier .

    The ironic part is you have homeowners collecting rent from the newbies
    who are lawyers and wall streeters who earn twice as much. It is amazing because some of the older homes have railroad bedrooms.. my old bedroom on the top floor is 6 feet wide and about 9 feet long is now a walk in closet…

    I LIVED ABOVE RANDS CLEANERS. RENT CONTROLLED APT. MY DAD PAID ABOUT $300.00 MONTH BUT COULD HAVE PAID $90.00. IF WE DIDN’T GET HEAT OR HOT WATER HE WOULD PAY THE $90.00 TO PUT SOMETHING IN THE LANDLORDS HEAD.
