This fully private section of my lovely loft is full of charm and light! There is a sunken living area, high ceilings, old warehouse industrial details, 4 piece luxury bathroom with a vintage claw foot tub plus a glass rainfall shower, pedestal sink and white marble custom tile. Sleep in a queen sized bed complete with over-stuffed down bedding and also relax on a large sofa sitting area with streams of southern exposure and sweet rooftop views. Make coffee in the morning or what ever you desire in the excellent kitchenette. The building is a robust industrial structure with massive brick walls and is fully automatic fire sprinklered for occupants safety. I am almost always available for whatever you may need, and happy to make sure you are well informed and safe for your stay in williamsburg.
This space sleeps 2 people.
Williamsburg is a very desirable area in which artists from around the world have chosen to settle. The apartment is only a block off Bedford Avenue (the main strip of cafes and shops) and a short block from the L train which is only one stop from Manhattan (so the East and West Village, SoHo, Chinatown, Lower East Side and Union Square are really easy to access in minutes) .
That is the reason why there are many work/live spaces and recording and art studios. The area is very colorful and is a weekend destination for both native New Yorkers and visitors. In this area there are many bars, restaurants, coffee shops, boutiques, wine bars, specialty shops, galleries and night clubs. There are also ample facilities such as supermarkets and laundromats.
McCarren Park is nearby and in the summer there are many outdoor events and concerts. In this park there are children's playgrounds, jogging tracks, a beautiful public pool and tennis courts. On the other side there is Waterfront Park, located along the East River, which has huge lounging lawns and spectacular views of Manhattan.
Transportation: 1 minute to the L train to Bedford Avenue, the G at Lorimer/metropolitan too. B61 bus to downtown Brooklyn just out the door will take you to PS1, MOMA's long island city branch of the museum of modern art in a historic old schoolhouse...great location for transport.
I am a photographer and artist and live and work in this full floor rental for the past 20 years watching the neighborhood blossom into an incredible bastion of creative small businesses with heart. I am happy to make recommendations and am here in the event anything needs attention but you may chose to feel like you are a native living in this great central location and historic artist loft.
this is the most desirable location in nyc--lots of sky and light and charm and neighborhood feel, with manhattan so easily accessible that one can pop in and out for a yoga class, meal or a meeting and return in minutes, to a sigh of relief when exiting the train station, confident that youre in a human scaled but vibrant and happening environment once again.
comfort and old world charm in a formerly industrial building with brick and wood and even old water pipes that led to a rooftop water tower still in the loft. comfortable in any season. colorful and unusual-- not your standard new construction or hotel experience.
we so enjoyed our stay in this lovely space- just like the photos looked but actually seemed bigger when we arrived in - everything was comfortable and all the area around was especially nice
If you're after a spacious well equiped place in a great location, you could not do better. All the goodness of Williamsburg, right next to the subway which takes you to Manhattan in minutes.
In contrary to the other person who has written a review I was not expecting hotel service, and I do not care if the cups don't match. The studio is just as charming as in the photos...yet bigger than I expected...and the view! I felt I was having a true williamsburg experience, a block from the subway, one stop from Manhattan...but really, you could hang out in the studio all day and watch people walk down the street if thats what you wanted... and the couple renting out the place were lovely! They did more for us than we expected.
When I go back to Brooklyn this is where I want to stay for sure!
The location of this loft is wonderful because the subway station so close; it's a hop, skip and a jump to Manhattan. One stop in fact, three quick stops from Union Square. And Wiiliamsburg is gloriously quirky and friendly The loft claims to have a TV and Stereo system and a microwave which were absent although the free internet works well. A cake of soap was provided after we asked for one. The bottle of dishwashing liquid in the kitchen alcove was empty on our arrival and no offer was made to replenish. Two thin bath towels and a thin hand towel were provided. There were two pillows on the bed and bedclothes which the host claimed were organic but looked to us like washed out winter sheets. This was in a heat wave in New York. The duvet was neither downy nor soft but was thin and worn as was the cover.We asked for two extra pillows and the host seemed surprised at this request. The bath mat was tatty. The overall impression was a spare room with somebody's leftover things. To describe the kitchen as fully equipped is to stretch credulity. Nothing seemed purpose bought. Looked like leftovers from home in a spare room. Host only accepts cash which for a 6 night stay is a considerable inconvenience. No door to shower, no holder for shower toiletries. No attempt to change towels or bed linen. We were told to do it ourselves. In a 6 day stay, towels and bed clothes need changing. Altogether certainly not value for money. We subsequently stayed at a marvelous guest house in Chicago which supported our view that this loft was misrepresented. In a word 'makeshift' rather than romantic and we are folks who appreciate quirky and different rather than modern and bland
two parks nearby, one on the waterfront overlooking skyline of manhattan and the other with trees, tennis, running track, beautiful public pool and farmers market.
lots of shopping and restaurants/cafes too
