What I Love About My Small Home:
I had been renting a very long, narrow and dark railroad apartment in the East Village, so as soon as I saw the square rooms in this beautiful brownstone in Brooklyn, I was smitten. I was hoping to find a place with its own private patio/garden, which this has. These brownstone garden apartments can be dark because they are partially sub-ground level, but this one was super light and bright, and even better still, filled with details like the old marble fireplace, tin ceilings, and original inlaid wood floors. I also love the 13' wall of kitchen because it's a great use of space and easy to work in with 2 or 3 people. I feel like I have a full dedicated kitchen, even though it only takes up one wall of the main room. I can't imagine living anyplace that doesn't have an open-plan main living area anymore. The idea of having separate box rooms for living room, kitchen, and dining room feels wasteful!
