Fort Greene Apartment Rental Photos and Description

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!

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.

This is a lovely apartment in an area we liked very much. It's very close to amenities, while being on a nice, quiet , residential street. The place was fully equipped, had a nice bathroom, & comfortable beds. We highly recommend it!

Hidden gem in Brooklyn/Trésor caché dans Brooklyn

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful stay in Paul's Fort Greene Garden apartment. Ideal for a family or group of 4, the apartment is as shown in pictures, if not better, and is extremely clean. It is truly a home away from home...the kitchen is fully equipped, particularly if you like to eat in; the beds are very comfortable; and the towels are of superior quality. It is also conveniently located in a very quiet neighborhood and within walking distance to Fulton St. where you will find tons of restaurants, coffee shops, wine shops, and food markets, not to mention the C subway line that brings you straight into Manhattan.

Paul was very helpful and made sure someone was there to greet us on arrival - a big thank you to Frank. Paul also went over and beyond the call of duty to return items that we had forgotten in the apartment.

Would definitely return to the Fort Greene Garden apartment and recommend it to others.

Super apartment très propre et bien situé dans un quartier tranquille de Brooklyn, à distance de marche de tous les services, y compris de la ligne de métro C menant à Manhattan. Nous y retournerons sûrement !

Perfect Spot in Brooklyn

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to stay! Paul is a lovely host and provided us with all the information we could have asked for.

Perfect logdings, with two size-able bedrooms and a well appointed kitchen, bathroom and seating area.

All the linens were of great quality and the beds were quite comfortable.

Many good eateries close by with a small grocery store 5 min walk away.

The subway is right around the corner for easy travel to Manhatten.

We will be staying again!
