Sheepshead Bay: Simplify Apartment Living

July 7, 2017 | Moving

Big city apartments are usually high on costs and short on space, especially in terms of storage space such as closets and cabinets.  The trend towards smaller apartments in New York continues to gain popularity. Prefabricated in Brooklyn, New York, these modular micro-apartments range anywhere from 260 to 360 square feet. It’s no wonder many Brooklynites turn to Sheepshead Bay self storage to make their lives more manageable.

While the idea of living in a minute amount of space may come as a shock to most, for many New Yorkers, a self storage unit often serves as their second home because it provides the extra space people need to make living the apartment life in Brooklyn more enjoyable.

There was a day when people could escape Manhattan’s sky-high housing prices by moving to larger and more affordable Brooklyn apartments in Brighton Beach and Sheepshead Bay for example. But no longer. Apartment rental prices have soared over the past several years.

It is no wonder that this top-rated Brooklyn Borough is where successful Brooklynites and New Yorkers want to live. However, the ever-growing population has caused the housing market to be extremely competitive in Brooklyn.

By reserving a Sheepshead Bay self storage unit, Brooklyn apartment dwellers can store seasonal items including bulky winter wardrobes and boots. Another popular storage item for the area is golf clubs, due to the proximity of Marine Park Golf Course on Flatbush Avenue.
