MAINTENANCE $984 a month

PROS There are windows in every room and open, leafy views from the living room and larger bedroom. The building is about a half-mile from Prospect Park and a quarter-mile from the new Kensington dog run, making it an appealing location for dog owners. The apartment retains many graceful period details, like arched entryways, built-in curio shelving and a stained-glass transom window.

CONS The bedrooms do not have closets; there are five elsewhere. There is no central air-conditioning. Unlike comparable buildings in the neighborhoods, this one does not have a parking garage.
