About the property

Furnished Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath (Sleeps 4)

Located in historic Fort Greene, Brooklyn this large and comfortable apartment is centrally located to everything that makes this one of the most charming neighborhoods in New York City. Within blocks of the internationally renown Brooklyn Academy of Music, home of The Next Wave Festival, including the Harvey Theater and the Rose Cinema (a complex of four movie theaters inside the Academy's main building), Long Island University and Hospital, and Pratt Institute in the opposite direction. Fort Greene is also proud to be the home of the Mark Morris Dance Group. The apartment itself is on the ground floor of a brick Italianate townhouse on a tree-lined Landmarked block, built before the American Civil War in 1859. You will enter through a private entrance into a large, open living room, dining room and kitchen.

About Paul Palazzo

Former president of the local neighborhood community organization the Fort Greene Association. I wish you a pleasant stay.

Paul Palazzo purchased this apartment in 1998

Why Paul Palazzo chose Brooklyn

Fort Greene Garden in the heart of Fort Greeen Brooklyn which is the most vibrant and friendly neighborhood in all of New York City. You can have the hustle and bustle of Manhattan and then come home to your own quiet retreat of friendly restaurants, bars, cultural institutions, and street life. Don't just visit New York but make friends in Fort Greene.

What makes this apartment unique

Roll out of bed to your corner bistro and if that doesn't suit you visit the Farmer's Market or Brooklyn Flea on Saturday. Stroll down our tree covered streets and stop into one of our friendly shops and restaurants.

A home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures just don't do this apartment justice. The place is just amazing inside. Well designed, well furnished and just chalked full of style. The owners certainly didn't skimp on amenities. From the thick and fluffy white towels to the great quilts and down comforters. Even the bathroom fixtures are amazing. There is plenty of room for storage in the closets and just every little thing you need is there as if you were home. The kitchen is stocked with all the cooking utensils you'd need and some you didn't know you needed. This Fort Greene apartment is close to quaint places to dine, grocery stores, laundromats and parks to relax in. The owners are so helpful when it comes to recommending things in the area from restaurants to taxi services (which we appreciated greatly - Myrtle's was perfect!). Paul and Allen were available for questions and never hesitated to make sure our stay was everything we wanted it to be. I highly recommend Fort Greene Garden to anyone planning to stay in New York. If you want a place that's not in the hub of Manhattan, but close enough to get there with just a taxi or subway ride away Fort Greene Garden is the place for you. You will not be disappointed! Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your amazing place! It was truly our home away from home!

Still Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This is our family's third stay at this lovely garden apartment in four years. We love NYC and visit from Sydney Australia on a regular basis. The apartment is still very well appointed and accurate with the description of the property. Good WiFi as well. The Fort Greene area is quiet and an easy subway ride into the city, and a 20 minute walk to DUMBO through Fort Greene Park. There are also local shops nearby and a full supermarket adjacent the Barclay Centre. A few good restaurants we tried this trip were Wallabout Seafood Restaurant and Olea. Both an easy stroll from the apartment. As mentioned in a previous review, if you want the New York vibe without the hustle and bustle of the city streets, then this place is perfect. This apartment allows you to explore the area without venturing into the city each day. If you are looking for an apartment which is well appointed with more space than the average listing, this one is for you.

Great place to stay for a New York visit

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was a lovely place to stay! The place was clean, with all the amenities you'd expect as well as comfortable and nicely decorated. A major bonus was the easy access to subway stations with travel times of 10-15 minutes to New York. Thanks for a great stay!

Lovely amenities and great location

  • 5 of 5

The owners are designers and know how to provide good lighting, color and furniture. Everything was provided for in this apartment (and we had Thanksgiving dinner here). Wonderful, historic neighborhood. Quiet! Near 3 grocery stores and 3 subway lines. Thank you for a restful week while seeing family and sights.

Great apartment, excellent facilities & location

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I and two teenage daughters really enjoyed our stay in this very comfortable and clean apartment in August 2016. Fort Greene and Brooklyn are great. Much to see and do (and eat) and it was really easy to commute into Manhattan, which we did most days. Owner is reliable, business like and helpful. Highly recommended.
