Apartment in vintage 1840 townhouse, near the East River. All newly renovated, kitchen and tile bath with tub and shower, has original dark hardwood floors. There is a library/study area, nice sized living room (which accommodates a good quality raised inflatable queen bed, if needed), and bedroom with new queen bed. Windows on 4 sides, for lots of fresh air, very secure, yet near all the Williamsburg activity! Absolutely no smoking in the apartment or building.
Transportation, area info:
Transportation is very close: Short walk to the ''L'' train or ''JMZ'' trains - then 5 minutes to Manhattan, ferry is a 2 minute walk, buses, and car service arrives on call in 3 minutes to take you to Manhattan in 10 minutes, $10. We are nearly always available with info and tips, and the house and the neighborhood are safe and friendly, and the apartment is extremely quiet and secure.

This is a large house for the City, but the sun, nearby East River air and gardens make it feel like the country. After living in Tribeca, Manhattan, I felt as though I bought the gardens and the house came with them. I live and work in the building and one floor is often available for guests. It is quiet for New York, restful, out of the way and private - and 2 blocks away from everything!
Fresh breeze drifts in from the river - there are actually windows on all 4 sides! The garden is full of the scent of roses, lilies, honeysuckle, violets, lavender and herbs just outside the windows. ....It's great to walk around the corner early in the morning for newspapers, cappuccino and home made croissants, and sit at sidewalk cafe tables and meet the locals!
