Big city apartments are usually high on costs and short on space, especially in terms of storage space such as closets and cabinets. The trend towards smaller apartments in New York is growing so rapidly that modular micro-apartments ranging anywhere from 260 to 360 square feet are now being prefabricated in Brooklyn, NY. A 45-minute subway ride from Midtown Manhattan, Sheepshead Bay is experiencing a mini-housing boom. Nearby, is Brighton Beach, which is home to colonies of tiny Brooklyn Bungalows.
While the idea of living in a minute amount of space may come as a shock to most, for many New Yorkers, a self storage unit often serves as a second home.
There was a day when people could escape Manhattan’s sky-high housing prices by moving to larger and more affordable Brooklyn apartments in Brighton Beach and Sheepshead Bay for example. But no longer. Even Donald Trump has moved into the neighborhood: The Shorecrest in Trump Village offers luxury Brighton Beach apartments for rent in the heart of Coney Island.
By reserving a Sheepshead Bay self storage unit, Brooklyn residents can store their seasonal items such as winter wardrobes and boots. Another popular storage item for the area is golf clubs, due to the proximity of Marine Park Golf Course on Flatbush Avenue.
If you are sharing a household or recently married, putting family heirlooms or wedding gifts into temporary storage means you won’t have to get rid of items just because your current home does not have enough space to store everything that you want to keep.
A stone’s throw from the Atlantic; Sheepshead Bay is the home of beautiful beaches, the Riegelmann Boardwalk, world famous amusement parks, Brighton Beach, and the Aquarium. It is no wonder that this top-rated Brooklyn Borough is where successful New Yorkers want to live. However, the ever-growing population has caused the housing market to be extremely competitive in Brooklyn.
One segment of New York’s growing population is singles, and with the number of single New Yorkers growing, the demand for Brooklyn apartments continues to increase. Even though new Sheepshead Bay self storage facilities are coming online to address the ongoing space shortages small and micro-housing is creating, storage rental rates are typically going to be much higher in Manhattan than they are in Brooklyn.
Thankfully, Metro Self Storage has opened a brand new state-of-the-art Brooklyn storage facility on Knapp Street near UA Sheepshead Bay Stadium14 IMAX & RPX Theaters.
This Brooklyn self storage facility offers a wide selection of convenient and secure storage options ranging from 5X5 to 10X30, and practically every size in between. Mini storage, small, medium and large storage units, with climate control and non-climate control options are currently available.
Whether you are living in a tiny Brooklyn studio or a sleekly designed glorified closet, chances are pretty high that the storage space you would love to have is lacking in your Brooklyn home. Reserve your Sheepshead Bay Brooklyn storage unit early, before rental rates increase, and choose the type of storage features you want for your Brooklyn business or household storage needs.
