Most convenient buildings to rent apartment in Brooklyn under 2750$/month?

For everyday Manhattan commuters. I'm interested in new and well connected buildings/areas. However, if there are better options I'd love to know, I'm moving from Spain with my girlfriend in a couple months and I'm new to the city.

I love art, sports and enjoy good food and music (no kidding) but not necessarily a hipster culture lover (at all).

    Prospect Heights is a great neighborhood. You are right above Prospect Park so you can play sports and exercise-- there is a great 3.3 mile loop around a beautiful pond that makes for a great bike ride. There are good restuarants around, noteably Chuko for ramen, Woodwork for beer and watching soccer. You are close to several trains that get into the city easily, less than 20 mins away. The buildings are typical brooklyn brownstones with the exception of a few apartment complexes. Rent for a 1 bedroom apartment can range from $1400 to $3000 so you should be all set. A very adequate apartment should be around $2000-$2400.

    Pepe, have you tried www.urbancompass.com? It's a real estate startup in NY with lots of rentals and great information on neighborhoods. Many buildings represented and you'll be able to gauge average prices by street/area.

    If you're not a fan of hipster culture the only neighborhood you might want to avoid is Williamsburg .

    Well connected neighborhoods include Brooklyn Heights , Cobble Hill , Carroll Gardens , Park Slope and Fort Greene . There are plenty of other great areas too but they may be a bit rustic for your tastes.

    I live in Williamsburg and you can get a two bedroom for this price if you live one subway stop in from Bedford on the L train. Park Slope is a bit to mellow for you and your girlfriend, but don't get me wrong, it is great to see when riding bikes during the summer.

    East Williamsburg is blowing up, more reasonable than Williamsburg, I heard it's the 'West Village' of Brooklyn now... you didnt specify if you're looking for a one or two bdrm. What's your style? Gritty? Artsy? Bedford–Stuyvesant is affordable, Fort Greene, Clinton Hill, Brooklyn Heights. Good luck

    I recommend signing up on listingsproject.com, it's a free email newsletter with affordable options. It saved me when I moved to the East Coast.
