We have lived here since Larry was in Brooklyn Law School. We raised our family here, and our grandchildren attend the same schools as our children. Kathy taught at Packer Collegiate Institute just up the street.

Kathleen Goldhirsch purchased this townhome in 1970

In the 70s we were part of a a contingent of young people who loved old houses, the beautiful neighborhood, and who set about refurbishing these houses by hand.

This is a peaceful, tree lined neighborhood where you'll see lots of children and dogs. It's very family oriented. There are all sorts of interesting shops, from supermarkets to ethnic and elegant. A plethora of restaurants. The waterfront with the most spectacular views of Manhattan imaginable.

WONDERFUL WEEK IN NYC

  • 5 of 5
My family converged at this charming Brooklyn home for a college graduation. On the weekend we filled every bed and all said they slept comfortably. The neighborhood is gorgeous, quiet, and safe. There was a delightful street fair held on Saturday. During our stay we walked the Brooklyn bridge, visited the Brooklyn museum and botanic garden, went to a flea market in Fort Greene, attended a Yankees game, walked the Highline, bicycled in Central park, and heard live music in Greenwich Village. We had a fantastic family dinner at Chez Moi on Atlantic Avenue, then danced to a DJ across the street at a bar called the Last Exit. It was a great experience for our family. Thank you Kathleen and Lawrence!

FAMILY GROUP LEFT HAPPY

  • 4 of 5
I arranged for this rental for a large family group. The owner was very accommodating with meeting me to give us the keys for the next day. She provided lots of local information to my family about the historic building and the locale. The rental exceeded my expectations.

With two elderly parents, it worked well to have them use the garden entrance with only a few steps. They stayed primarily in the bottom floor because of a steep staircase to the second floor. But that worked out fine, as the kitchen, bathroom and master were in the lower area. Having an outdoor area was an added bonus as the weather was good for several days.

It was close to public transit and my family loved the weekend street market nearby. There was a laundry, cafe and bodega within 1/2 block. Many restaurants were accessible within two blocks.

I would recommend this unit but keep in mind that it does have one bathroom. We may actually try to rent it again next time we need to be in the city.

VERY DIRTY

  • 2 of 5
I agree with previous reviewers who said the owners are very easy to work with. It was located on a quiet street and very close to everything. It is a very large apartment, however, the second bedroom is wall to wall with two single beds. There is no room to even put a suitcase on the floor.
But my major complaint was how filthy the entire place was. We had to go buy cleaning products to clean the chairs before we could sit in them and to clean the bathroom. Except for the sheets and the towels being clean, every other surface was REALLY dirty.

Owner's Response: We were dismayed and shocked to read this review. As our other sixteen reviews attest, we take meticulous care of our property and are quickly responsive to our guests if any problems should arise. If we had been made aware of any discomfort experienced by the guest we would have addressed the situation immediately. As far as we were aware, our property had received the same high standard of maintenance as it always does.

LOVED IT!

  • 5 of 5
What a charming apartment! Incredibly clean, beautifully kept. The location is fabulous, in safe Cobble Hill neighborhood, very quiet and peaceful. Kathy and Larry were very quick at communicating and flexible with our arrival/departure times. Furnishings are a little sparse but quite comfortable, every basic need is taken care of. We only used the bed in the main bedroom, it was very comfortable with soft high-quality linens. We appreciated the ample extra blankets and the thick fluffy towels. We were too busy to use the courtyard dining area, but it looked like a lovely place to relax. We'll definitely be back on our next NYC trip!
