I'm a new poster here. My roommate and I are looking for a 2 bedroom in areas around prospect park that are safe for two young women (in our early 20s). We can go up to $1500, maybe $1550 if it's great. Basically, we're just trying to avoid east of Nostrand and north of Eastern Parkway. We can live on Eastern Parkway (who wouldn't want to, it's so nice!), just not above it.
The search on craigslist has been a nightmare and brokers basically dominate. I've been told by Lang realty about 6 times that none of the apartments they're listing is available for an Aug. 1 lease. Apparently, they're only showing July 21 leases? We're both currently living in different states but will be moving to the city in late august. We're only available really to see apartments on the weekend, making this really hard. I'm in Long Island, so I can come in late at night on weeknights but it's still difficult. Does anyone have any leads in the area? Or know of rental companies/management companies of buildings I can call?
