We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay in New York City! As a small family, this ground level apartment had everything we needed: garden, washing machine, great kitchen, comfy beds and plenty of space. Subway and groceries were 2 minute walks away, and the computer and information pack were massively appreciated.
The subway ride to the city was easy, and it gave us a perfect escape spot at the end of a busy day of walking. It's also a great spot for a not too expensive taxi ride from JFK after a long flight. The neighbourhood was entertaining and on evening walks we met lots of lovely locals who enjoyed a chat and a pat of their dogs.
Apartment was superbly clean and beautifully thought out. Not a single complaint, and if you're an overseas travelling family such as us, we can't recommend staying here highly enough. We spent a final night in Manhattan on our way back home and it was hugely expensive, noisy and grubby - we spent the night wishing for this wonderful Brooklyn apartment!
Many many thanks to Katie for her efficiency and helpfulness in planning our stay. It set our adventure off to a wonderful start!!
