It's no secret that Brooklyn is a borough of extremes. There's the glittering, high-rise–dotted Williamsburg waterfront and brownstone-lined Park Slope, and there are the dilapidated housing projects in East New York and the "foreclosure belt" in southeast Brooklyn.


Now, we have a look at how that disparity manifests itself on the rental market; check out the most- and least-expensive homes available now in Kings County from Zumper's trove of real-estate listings. (Note: These listings reflect the most- and least-expensive apartments available on Zumper, which has over 10,000 NYC listings.)

First off, we have a five-bedroom, five-bathroom duplex penthouse in Downtown Brooklyn. Located at 189 Bridge Street in glassy Bridgeview Tower, this 5,100-square-foot space goes for a whopping $19,500 per month. Click through the droolworthy photos above to see the modern palace's floor-to-ceiling windows, multitudes of marble, top-notch appliances including heated towel racks, exhibitionist bathrooms and more. The spot's future tenant will get all the amenities typically offered by a luxury condo (gym, doorman et al.), plus the choice between SEVEN different outdoor spaces: five balconies and two terraces. Go to Zumper's website to see the full listing.

On the other end of the spectrum—and the other end of town—there's a $1,000-per-month studio available in Midwood. Though there's little info about the space besides that it has hardwood floors and an elevator, the photos don't make it look too shabby; we have a feeling some nice furnishings could make it a more than adequate home. Plus, we spy at least one decent-sized closet. The trade-off, of course, is living in far-flung Midwood, though at least the apartment is half a block from the F train (29 Avenue J). Not so bad, eh? Head over to Zumper for the full listing.


Note: An earlier version of this article featured an apartment not actually located in Brooklyn.

A journalistic low point....


The cheap apt is obviously not in Brooklyn.

@Slick M  There's definitely some sort of fraud and/or deception going on here.
