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 Fort Greene

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 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!

We had a wonderful trip. Thank you Paul for allowing us to stay in your home. We loved the location and was a great introduction to Brooklyn. Was easy to get in and out and close to subway and eateries. All in all the trip was a success and the comfort of your home was a major part. Thank you again.

The apartment was clean, charming, and a great location.

  • 5 of 5

Paul's place was clean, comfortable and we especially appreciated the great location. It was close to the Farmer's Market, excellent restaurants, parks, and shopping. We walked everywhere we needed to go. One of the bedrooms is off of the living/room & kitchen so it probably works best for families. We didn't see Paul until the last day, but he was there to answer any questions we may have had. We were in town for our daughter's wedding and Paul's place was perfect for us. We will use it on our next visit to Brooklyn.
