My name is TRUE, I am an Artist / Designer, and have been the Owner / Operator of MACON MANOR since purchasing the Home in 1999.

I moved from Los Angeles, CA. to New York to be a part of its vibrant culture (and to study at Sarah Lawrence College and The Cooper Union Art School) and then moved from Manhattan to Stuyvesant Heights because I found it to be safer and much quieter.

TRUE purchased this apartment in 1999

I chose MACON MANOR because it offered exactly what I wanted: a lot of space; many of its original architectural details; a chance to explore my interior design ideas; a Garden; and a quiet block just 5 minutes from an express train that can get you into Manhattan in just 12 minutes.

The properties in the Stuyvesant Heights Historic District were built for the wealthiest people of the day in the late 1800s, when everything else in the area was farmland. Throughout the course of the 20th century, as public transportation made it easier for the working class to get deeper into Brooklyn, the wealthy fled, and their homes transitioned into the hands of the middle class.

Living in one such home, and having the chance to lovingly restore it and share it with travelers from around the world is a very unique opportunity, one that I cherish.

Wonderful stay in Bedford Stuyvesant, Brooklyn

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Sep 23, 2008
  • Stayed: Sep 2008
My wife, her daughter and I stayed at Macon Manor for four days in September 17-21, 2008. We were looking for an apartment in New York for a short family vacation after the WYSTC 2008 Conference and we found Macon Manor in Brooklyn to be the perfect place.

The whole Bedford Stuyvesant area is lovely, especially around Macon Street with all the treed streets and nice brownstone buildings. People are very friendly and much more polite than in London or Paris. The 5-minute walk to and from the Utica Ave subway station, through Fulton Park, is very nice, and my wife was telling me "I felt safer than in the métro in Paris".

True (the apartment owner) recommended the nearby café (Bread Stuy) and restaurant (Peaches Brooklyn), where we had excellent breakfasts and a great dinner on our last evening. Peaches does not have a liquor licence so they sent us to a little wine store a block away, where I found a very good rosé Rioja that went very well with our pork and beef ribs (both cooked to perfection). The service was great, performed by the ever smiling staff.

I highly recommend Macon Manor, very well maintained and nicely furnished by True, who also thought of filling up the fridge with water bottles, and the kitchen with coffee and tea, all very much appreciated on arrival and during our stay (like the numerous books in the living room that taught us the history of the Brooklyn bridge and helped us plan our visits).

The apartment was much better than others we rented in the US or in other countries, and next time I or my family go to New York for work or for a holiday, we'll return to Macon Manor for sure. We'll just book the 3rd floor apartment for a change next time.

Staying at Macon Manor in Brooklyn is a great and much cheaper alternative to any hotel or apartment rental in Manhattan. It gives an easy, safe and fast access to all New York tourist attractions and business districts, while offering the unique and original character of the Bedford Stuyvesant area in Brooklyn.

this was a "true" find :) - the neighborhood has great restaurants and people, the building is beautiful, relaxed, secure, and spacious - great set up for a larger group who want to share some meals in as well as out. True is very thorough manager, very personable kind and well respected in the area - which makes all the difference. We preferred this area to Manhattan and never felt crowded even though we were 6. this is a sure deal for anyone who wants to experience new york authenticity.

Family Stay in New York

Macon Manor was every bit as nice as we expected. True was a great host and provided us with the information we needed to get to our destinations and see the city. The subway was only a couple of blocks away and a short ride into Manhattan and out to the the airport. The kids loved the movie selection and games. It was easy to stock the kitchen as small markets were very close. We will definitely recommend this to our friends and family and stay here again on another trip to New York.

Great Stay with Girlfriends

We were a group of six women coming from all over the US for a girlfriends weekend. Macon Manor was perfect for us. We each had a comfy place to sleep, the apartment was clean, and we were pleasantly surprised with how safe & quiet the neighborhood was. The owner gave excellent advice about the neighborhood. We ate at Saraghina (twice!) and Peaches for brunch. Super yum! We came & went via private car as well as subway-- both very easy to do. If I were to come to NYC with my family (husband and three young kids), I would make my reservations around vacancies at Macon Manor. The value is exceptional.

Not much more that I can add to the other reviews. This place was PERFECT! True was out front when we arrived, and came upstairs to check us in, then spent at least 20 minutes giving us an excellent tour "primer" on the area and how to get around, plus great recommendations for what to do during our stay. The appartment was exceptionally clean, and we slept so well every night with hardly a sound from the quiet, nice street outside. The children loved all the great books and toys and of course the bunk beds. The appartment is an easy, relaxing walk to the Utica Street subway station about a 10 minute (leisurely) walk away, and only 20 minute ride to Times Square. We also enjoyed going out to Coney Island and Brighton Beach, which are just one train switch away. Will definitely be staying here the next time we return!

Thank you True! Our party of 7 (which included 4 kids) all had a fantastic time while we were in New York March 13-18th. True offered great advice on sites to see with the kids, how to best get around and great places to eat! We loved the neighbourhood - especially the Therapy Wine Bar :) Our accomodations were clean, and safe and was a nice retreat at the end of busy day of sites and shopping. We would definitely return to the Macon Manor on our next trip to NY.

I treated my grandchildren, and 2 others to a long weekend in the City. We rented this wonderful place from True. The space was perfect for accommodating the 6 of us, the beds were comfortable and there was plenty of individual privacy when needed; the kitchen and supplies were perfect for us; and the spacious bathroom a delightful surprise. It worked perfect for those of us who get up at different times in the morning so we could enjoy breakfasts and sometimes evening meals here at the apartment. The train was a short walk away and we quickly connected to downtown/midtown/uptown Manhattan as needed. There are plenty of options for groceries and great restaurants nearby. We'll be going back! True is also very welcoming and helpful - he is the best! I highly recommend you consider this as a first choice when going to New York.

our family of 4 enjoyed the stay at this apartment. The neighborhood was nice and a true new york look all over it. TRUE the owner provided great help and was there when ever needed extra help. the app it self have all what you need from kitchen stuff to personal care things. although the weather was little cold but the heating system was great keeping the appt at decent temperature.

the location is so great, restaurants and deli are near by. Subway was really close with 24 hr line. so no matter how late you are you always get to get off subway just couple of blocks from the appt.
