You Can Now Rent Mayor de Blasio’s Park Slope Home for $4,975 a Month

Bill de Blasio (R) is sworn in as mayor of New York City by State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman (L) while his family (L-R) Chiara de Blasio, Dante de Blasio and Chirlane McCray look on after midnight January 1, 2014 in the Park Slope neighborhood of the Brooklyn borough of New York City. De Blasio took the oath outside his home in Park Slope. His inauguration will be celebrated at noon today on the steps of City Hall when he takes the oath again, which will be administered by former U.S. President Bill Clinton.

With the de Blasios adjusting to Upper East Side life at Gracie Mansion, the family’s three-story Brooklyn townhouse is on the rental market starting today. Billed as “An Oasis in Park Slope,” the “charming, country-style private house” has three bedrooms (convertible to four!) and boasts “newly refinished oak floors and a brick hearth with a hand painted tile hearthstone,” according to the listing. The worst part: just one bathroom, located on the third floor, a complaint the mayor has made himself (Gracie has five).

For the size and location, the place is a steal at $4,975 per month, not to mention its proximity to greatness — a family would likely get at least three degrees cuter simply by soaking in the de Blasio vibes. There is, obviously, a room that looks like this:

And an “edible herb garden” (“rosemary, thyme, sage!”). Here’s the full list of specs, courtesy Tricia Webster of Brooklyn Properties:

The 24/7 security stand out front, however, is gone. And don’t expect to actually meet the landlord (or Dante): The mayor will not be interviewing aspiring tenants, a spokesperson said.
