No Pet friendly Apartments in Brooklyn?
Rejected and defeated. The new apartment rentals at the formerly “fugly” 166 Smith Street (which seem to be only part of a select few rentals in Brooklyn described accurately) initially accepted small dogs are now saying no. After an intense search in 100 degree blazing heat we decided to go for the “new” over market priced rental apartments at 166 Smith Street. They are trying to maintain a feeling of complete “luxury” which entails not allowing dogs for the chance they could bark and interrupt the no-noise bliss of living in Cobble Hill, you know because living above Smith Street is complete quiet.
