As the title says, I'm looking for a three bedroom apartment in Brooklyn and my maximum budget is $2000 dollars. I've done some searching online, and spent the day walking around Brooklyn. A lot of the available places seem to be in Crown Heights, Bushwick, etc. None of what I saw was very appealing.

I'm just looking for something affordable, in a relatively nice/safe area, with decent public transport nearby, and ideally some shops and restaurants. Where should I be looking? What are some good websites that have apartment listings? Thanks for the help.

In Brooklyn, a decent neighborhood to check would be Bay Ridge. It can be a hike to get to Manhattan, but offers a good neighborhood and you should be able to find rents at, or under $2k, since the area has many multi-family homes, which tend to rent for less than larger buildings. It's not mere minutes from Manhattan like Brooklyn Heights, but is worth checking out if you want Brooklyn.

Too bad you are not looking in the Bronx, I could find you a place with 4 bed, 2 bath and parking but you pay all utilities

Lower Manhattan about 35-45 minutes or so, and probably 45-60 minutes to Midtown, using the subway.

It's a typical New York neighborhood, so it has a selection of local restaurants and shops, not too bad insofar as conveniences and shops. You would find everything from a bagel shop to sporting goods, etc.
