Bwog recommendation: Studio doubles in this building are spacious and great for a rising junior duo who doesn’t mind sharing a space. One of the best things about this building is that the residents share a private kitchen and bathroom. Of course, this means you’ll want to think about who you’ll share the space with because you’re responsible for cleaning it. Also, living in a brownstone seems fun! There’s no reason to not try it out.
