I just went through the form of self-flagellation known as finding a new apartment in Williamsburg. Here I matched up the Craigslist headlines for Williamsburg apartments with what they actually meant after I clicked on them and/or visited in person.
PRIME WILLIAMSBURG – Far South Williamsburg
EAST WILLAMSBURG – Deep Bushwick or Queens.
DRENCHED IN SUNLIGHT – There is a window in the apartment.
STEPS TO MCCARREN PARK – Only 6 blocks and one major expressway standing in your way!
CUTE and COZY 1 BEDROOM – Good luck fitting a bed inside this place.
CHARMING APPLIANCES – The stove has knobs that do not work.
POOLSIDE – Apartment is somewhat near the loud McCarren Park Pool.
WHERE YOU WANT TO BE – Somewhere off the Jefferson Stop.
SOUTH WILLIAMSBURG – Bedstuy
WOW EXTRAORDINARY DUPLEX– Bedroom is in a basement
STUNNING APARTMENT – Toilet is working
WILL NOT LAST – Awful place that will most definitely last or why would you need to write that.
STEAL OF A DEAL – Incredibly overpriced.
THE FINEST INTERIOR – Appeared to have been painted.
GREAT LOCATION – Anywhere besides actually in Williamsburg.
SLEEK APARTMENT – One of the rooms was painted white.
AMAZING DESIGN – The living room area is angled in a strange way where you cannot have a TV and couch setup.
‘WHILLIMSBURG’ – Was technically located in Williamsburg.
STUNNING BATHROOM – There is a sink that works.
STEPS TO LORIMER TRAIN – 8 blocks from the Lorimer G train.
