This large section of my lovely loft is full of sweeping space and light! With high ceilings, old warehouse industrial details, 3 piece luxury bathroom with a rainfall shower, modern sink and white marble custom tile. Sleep in a queen sized bed complete with over-stuffed down bedding and also relax on a large sofa that can sleep another person. Make coffee in the morning or what ever you desire in the excellent kitchenette. The building is a robust industrial structure with massive walls and is fully automatic fire sprinklered for occupants safety. I am almost always around for whatever you may need, and happy to make sure you are well informed and safe for your stay in williamsburg.
The studio is a private part of my larger loft in which I reside. It is very spacious and located on the top corner of the building with eight big windows facing South and West. This allows streams of sunlight to make this loft area very warm and bright and also provides views of the Manhattan skyline and the Empire State Building, not to mention the stunning New York City sunset. There are high ceilings, wood floors, post and beams and brick walls.
Fully furnished with a big vintage couch, reading chair, ottoman and coffee table, television/ DVD, full stereo/ CD player and laptop hookup. when i am not shooting Photography, enjoy our fully private NYC vacation in this studio space as an interesting alternative to cookie cutter accommodations. it is a most comfortable and sophisticated place to enjoy.

The kitchen has a cast concrete counter top and glass tiles and is open to the living area with a dining table and chairs. It is fully equipped with new stainless steel appliances including a dishwasher, double door fridge, microwave, coffee makers and all necessary items.
Numerous photo shoots have been catered from these facilities and photo shoots and commercial uses are negotiable.
The extra large bathroom is in white marble mosaic and equipped with a large glass and marble rainfall shower stall with high windows that allow you to look over Williamsburg rooftops while showering. There is a pedestal sink and lots of mirrors.
Williamsburg is a very desirable area in which artists from around the world have chosen to settle. The apartment is only a block off Bedford Avenue (the main strip of cafes and shops) and a short block from the convenient L train, which is only one stop from Manhattan. This train connects with ALL other trains in the system making commuting super easy.
There are many work/live spaces and recording and art studios. This very colorful area is a weekend destination for both native New Yorkers and visitors. The numerous murals, galleries and all the public art reflect the young, international and eclectic artistic atmosphere of this neighborhood. There are many bars, restaurants, coffee shops, boutiques, wine bars, specialty shops, markets, night and music venues, all within walking distance.
There are two great big parks also within walking distance: McCarren Park is nearby and in the summer there are many outdoor events and concerts. In this park there are children's playgrounds, jogging tracks and tennis courts as well as a lovely farmer’s market. On the waterfront there is a huge state Waterfront Park, located along the East River, which has nice views of Manhattan and is an urban “beach” scene in summer months with people lounging on the grass.
Transportation: 1 minute to the L train to Bedford Avenue and the B61 bus to downtown Brooklyn just out the door too.

About The Owner
I am a photographer and use this space when needed as a photo studio because it is flooded with light and open with lots of space to move about. I have lived and worked in Williamsburg for 19 years and have seen the transformation of this exciting and vibrant artist community first hand. I am here on site and happy to assist with recommendations to explore Williamsburg and NYC and get the most from time here.
The Owner purchased this studio in 1999
Why The Owner chose Brooklyn
NYC. This is better than Manhattan-- I was born and raised there. Brooklyn has more soul, more light and sky and more space. We have 2 parks within walking distance with tennis and a track too. A lovely farmers market on weekends and lots of restaurants and shops, bars and nightlife etc. People come from the city in droves to spend time in williamsburg and we are a block away from the main subeway hub. One can easily head into town for a few hours and return to a humanly scaled environment with buildings that don't exceed 5 stories.
What makes this studio unique
Enjoy real loft living. Artist have lived in this building since the 70's and its one of Williamsburg's original artist loft buildings. Lots of charm and great/best location for getting around. Center of Williamsburg and all it has to offer too. Lots of boutiques, vintage clothing stores, cafes, bars, restaurants, galleries, bowling, parks, tennis even. Come and see for yourself. A lot of Europeans make Williamsburg there home and you can see why--it has a small village feel yet its large in itself and closest to Manhattan of all Brooklyn neighborhoods.
