I agree with the points @GraphicNovelty made. The areas in Brooklyn that are cheaper than an average Boston place are going to be way shittier. The cool areas of Brooklyn ie: Greenpoint/Fort Green/Williamsburg are not cheap at all: 1 bedroom in the 2500+/month range. Depends where your office will be located but the neighborhoods recommended above are probably a better value.
You're gonna want to look at areas in South Brooklyn then. Areas to check out are Prospect Heights, Ft. Greene, Boerum Hill, Park Slope, or even Windsor Terrace or Ditmas Park (though the last two are pretty far, you can get a lot and it's pretty).
