This apartment can be your home away from home in the heart of historic Brownstone Brooklyn, NYC! It offers privacy, quiet, coziness, and plenty of living space, and a roomy kitchen. It's just a 5 minute walk to the A (express) train into Manhattan, and there is plenty of safe on street car parking all around. The apartment is in a quiet residential neighborhood with some fast growing restaurant scene, coffee shops, grocery store, and local parks all within walking distance. This apartment is a great home base for your visit to New York, offering Victorian Brownstone charm and easy access to New York's best amenities. Close proximity to many of Brooklyn's most talked-about neighborhoods like Williamsburg, Fort Greene, Brooklyn Heights, and Park Slope, and easy access to cultural attractions like the Brooklyn Museum, Prospect Park, the Brooklyn Academy of Music, the Brooklyn Children's Museum, and educational institutions such as Pratt Institute of Art.

Located Near Transportation & Amenities: The apartment is a 5 minute walk to the A express train, (15 minutes to Wall Street, 35 minutes to Times Square). 1-3 blocks to all of the best local businesses which include a charming, authentic Italian trattorias, a casual, southern regional restaurant and bar, a local independently-owned coffee shop, 3 blocks to an avant garde art gallery, 5 blocks to a nice wine shop, 4 blocks to a serene park with a playground across the street, and 5 blocks to a grocery store.

Privacy and Quiet: The apartment occupies its own floor of a historic Brooklyn brownstone in a quiet area of the city. It has a private street entrance and access to the backyard garden for quiet relaxation and outdoor dining. The Brownstone is owner-occupied (on the upper floors), so we are available to help answer any questions you may have, and to help orient you in the city and the neighborhood.

Wonderful Stay at Halsey House!

  • 5 of 5
Loved our weekend stay at the Halsey House! Everything was clean, comfortable and so roomy by NYC standards. It was great to have a little 'home-base' where we could make our own breakfast and coffee before heading out to explore Manhattan. The subway is only a few blocks away and we used it to go everywhere! Also, enjoyed pizza at Saraghina's and a charming coffee & pastries stop at Georges-Andres Vintage Café! We would definitely stay here again.

We felt at home in Bedford-Stuyvesant

  • 5 of 5
My wife, our eleven year old son and I stayed here for a week. We had a great time here. The apartment is down to earth, roomy and clean. The kitchen has just about everything and makes it easy to fix a meal. Hanging out in the garden was pleasant. The neighborhood has a nice and friendly vibe to it. Conveniently located near minimarts and some nice restaurants (our favorite was 'Peaches'). The subway to Manhattan is a small walk away, it's actually a nice walk.

We found Alex & Lisa to be friendly and helpful and hope to stay here again some day.

Great, clean apartment, has everything!

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay at this apartment! It was very clean, fully equipped with everything that we needed, and a great location. The homeowners checked in with us to be sure that we were fine and needed anything additional. It was in a good location with corner grocery stores, laundry services, good restaurants, and close to the subway. This was our first time in NY and the location of rental made it very easy for us to get around. We were there on several rainy days and the apartment was cozy. The beds were comfortable and we had plenty of toiletries and clean towels. We would not hesitate in renting this apartment again. We enjoyed our stay as well as meeting the owners. Picture is exactly what apartment looks like. Thanks for a great visit! We would give it the highest rating.

We arrived in June with only two of our 4 suitcases. Alex and Lisa helped us to get our luggage soon. They were really engaged. The flat was cute, clean. Lovely area around. Short time to Manhattan with the Metro. We think, we'll come back. Hopefully soon. Thanks Lisa and Alex.

7 Tage New York

  • 5 of 5
Wir haben das Appartement als Ausgangspunkt für unsere Ausflugswoche in New York genutzt. Die Lage ist Ideal. 1Std. zum Flughafen JFK. 30 - 45 min nach Manhattan. 2 kleine Supermärkte in unmittelbarer Nähe zur Wohnung und einige Restaurants/Bars in der Nachbarschaft. Alles was man benötigt in der Nähe. Die Resturants Saraghina und Celestino sind wirklich zu Empfehlen. Die Wohnung ist sauber und gut ausgestattet. Alles wie auf den Bildern dargestellt. Wir waren mit unserer 18 jährigen Tochter da und haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt.

Wonderful experience in Brooklyn

  • 4 of 5
Alex & Liza were so nice and accommodating. They let us checked in early and also gave us a welcome gift. The apartment was kinda old but its clean, size is enough for a family with kids. Kitchen is big and fully equipped. Owners even provided us high chair and even offer books & toys if we need.
Apartment is so convenient. It takes about 10 mins walk to Utica station, A and C trains takes you to Manhattan.
Neighborhood were all nice! really far from our impression of New yorker. Its safe to walk even at night. Not much restaurant close by but there's bodega's on every corner to get what you need.
We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely stay again next time:-)))

Owner's Response: Yes, the apartment is located in a brownstone that was built in the 1860's, so it's not a very "modern" look. However, the bathroom is recently renovated, and we have recently repainted and freshened up the apartment. Regarding restaurants, there are four very good restaurants within 5-10 minutes walking distance: Celestino (on the corner of our block), Saraghina, Peaches, and Beso (the first three have been mentioned in several of the other reviews). My own family frequents them regularly, and Saraghina in particular, has become a destination spot for Manhattanites. ; )
