Why Apartment Life in Brooklyn is Better


June 29, 2017 | Your Local Metro

Living the apartment life in Brooklyn means you are living in the center of the universe. You’re surrounded by incredible architecture, colorful personalities, and delicious food. Not all apartments are spacious though, which is perfectly okay.

Living large in Brooklyn doesn’t mean you need to live in a large space. In fact, there are many benefits to small apartment living:

  • Your home is easier to clean
  • You get to be more creative with design and functionality
  • You learn to keep only the necessities in your apartment
  • If the lines are too long at Grimaldi’s (they don’t take reservations), you can head over to L&B Spumoni Gardens in Bensonhurst on 86th Street. L&B’s offers a wide selection of Italian food and is known for its pizza and ice cream.
  • Other Brooklyn Italian dining options include Di Fara Pizza in the Midwood section of Brooklyn and Lenny’s Pizza, which was featured in the cult classic film, “Saturday Night Fever.”

    Finding where to exercise in a big city can be challenging for some. Especially, if finding an affordable place to get in shape is at the top of your list. Save on gym memberships by going for a run or bike ride, which is especially cool under the backdrop of the Brooklyn Bridge.

    you think of a city you don’t usually think of parks, but Brooklyn is full of them. Green-Wood Cemetery is a National Historical Landmark encompassing 478-acres of hills, valleys, ponds with walking paths throughout.

    Keep your precious memories in storage while living the apartment life in Brooklyn

    Finding a place for all your belongings is hard when you live in a small place. There simply isn’t space for everything, but that doesn’t mean you have to get rid of items you love. Grab those old yearbooks, your kids first drawings, and those skinny jeans you know will fit again someday and put them in storage.
