    Have to go through a walk in closet to get to the bathroom, where do you hide all your junk?

    The floorplan makes it look more like a studio than a 1-BR. It’s a solid deal as a 1BR, overpriced as a studio.

      It’s a little confusing. It is big enough to be a “real” one-bedroom (even if it’s small), but it looks like the bedroom is separated by those folding doors they use in schools. The owner should put up French doors (if light is a concern) or a real wall as a divider.

  • It’s an okay price for a pretty crappy unit, imo. I hate the carpet, the bathroom in the closet is weird, and while it’s spaced out okay, it’s tiny. I’d consider this a Jr. 1BR because of the dubious separation with the living room, which is makes the price okay, but I personally would never live there.

    • To be fair, the amenities in a building like that, especially with the roofdeck, might be worth a sub-par unit. The building itself (the Garfield) gets good reviews on yelp and other apartment sites, from what I see.
