For $1,825 a month, Bill de Blasio could be your landlord

Smokers and pet owners need not apply

If your rent goes up, you’ll certainly know whom to call. Mayor Bill de Blasio is looking for someone to rent his Park Slope apartment, asking $1,825 a month.

The one-bedroom apartment is part of a two-family home at 384 11th Street, Politico reported. The Mayor and his wife Chirlane McCray have owned the property, formerly the home of de Blasio’s late mother, since 2004, according to the publication.

Unit 2 is the upstairs apartment and features a “comfortable, sun-filled layout,” according to the StreetEasy listing, as well as a “vintage kitchen.” There’s a shared washer/dryer, but pets are not allowed, nor are smokers. Trisha Webster of Brooklyn Properties has the listing. The house is valued at a little under $1.7 million, Politico reported, citing the Department of Finance tentative assessment roll that was released earlier this year.

The apartment originally rented for $1,800 per month, but the mayor raised the rent by $25 in June 2014, according to Politico. The house is not part of the rent stabilization program because it’s too small. De Blasio recently took credit for rent freezes set by the Rent Guideline Board in 2015 and 2016, even though the board is meant to be independent.

The landlord group Rent Stabilization Association is suing the board over the two freezes, saying the board improperly considered “tenant affordability” in its decision.

The mayor — who officials announced last week will not face criminal charges over fundraising practices at the now-defunct nonprofit Campaign for One New York — and his wife also rent out another home on 11th Street in Park Slope for $4,975 per month, where they lived before moving into Gracie Mansion in 2014. [Politico]Miriam Hall
