It’s no secret that part of Park Slope’s appeal is its historic architecture. The rows of landmarked brownstones are a source of pride, harkening back to the early 20th century and giving the neighborhood an almost idyllic and certainly iconic quality. Still, Brooklyn is changing, and our community is no exception: for better or worse, modern luxury buildings are popping up, especially along the Gowanus border on 4th Avenue, and promising some pretty tempting perks and amenities.
So what’s your style? We’ve rounded up 2-bedrooms from both categories within two price ranges ($3-4,000 & $4-5,000) that are currently on the market, offering the best of their respective worlds. Check them out, and then let us know who wins in the poll.
Lincoln Place between 7th & 8th Avenues
Details: This “sun adorned” 2-bedroom sits on the top floor of a Victorian classic townhouse, and it offers a “sprawling front living room” lined with windows, an updated kitchen with maple cabinets and a dishwasher (pictured above), a renovated bathroom with new ceramic tile, a king-sized master bedroom with dual double-wide closets, hard oak parquet flooring throughout, 10-foot ceilings, and a soon-to-be-installed private washer and dryer. Heat and water are included. Disclaimer: only those “with strong financials and worthy credit” need apply.

134 Park Place, GDN (between 6th & 7th Avenues)
Details: This North Slope apartment recently went down $200 in price, and is alternately referred to as a 3-bedroom and 2.5-bedroom, meaning the third is probably better off used as an office space. It’s a floor-through space, featuring two bathrooms, hardwood floors, exposed brick in the living room, and original moldings. It also comes with private laundry room and outdoor space. Pets are allowed.
