We have lived here since Larry was in Brooklyn Law School. We raised our family here, and our grandchildren attend the same schools that our children did. Kathy taught at Packer Collegiate Institute just up the street.
Kathleen and Larry Goldhirsch purchased this townhome in 1970
In the 70s we were part of a a contingent of young people who loved old houses, the beautiful neighborhood, and who set about refurbishing these houses by hand.
This is a peaceful, tree lined neighborhood where you'll see lots of children and dogs. It's very family oriented. There are all sorts of interesting shops, from supermarkets to ethnic and elegant. A plethora of restaurants. The waterfront with the most spectacular views of Manhattan imaginable.
There is a small patio adjacent to the kitchen where you can breakfast and dine al fresco, watch the world go by, enjoy a cool drink or a cup of tea. Cook out down by the waterfront on one of the grills, even kayak in New York harbor.
My family converged at this charming Brooklyn home for a college graduation. On the weekend we filled every bed and all said they slept comfortably. The neighborhood is gorgeous, quiet, and safe. There was a delightful street fair held on Saturday. During our stay we walked the Brooklyn bridge, visited the Brooklyn museum and botanic garden, went to a flea market in Fort Greene, attended a Yankees game, walked the Highline, bicycled in Central park, and heard live music in Greenwich Village. We had a fantastic family dinner at Chez Moi on Atlantic Avenue, then danced to a DJ across the street at a bar called the Last Exit. It was a great experience for our family. Thank you Kathleen and Lawrence!
It is a such lovely place and house! The location is exactly what I was looking for! I didn't want to stay in Manhattan because it is too crowded and too touristic! I wanted to live like a real New Yorker and breath the real city! The neighborhood is amazing, it is NYC! Nice house, really pretty restaurant, both for breakfast (Iris) and for dinner (Deli). The location is good! You have to walk just a bit to reach the closest stop subway (7 min)! But also if you like walking you can do! My children (6 and 10 y.o.) and me walked a morning along the Brooklyn bridge till the 9/11 Memorial Center (45 min)! I highly recommend! It was my first time in NYC, if I will come back, I will go back here!
Spacious home, ideal location, and gracious hosts--we couldn't ask for more. We rented it for family visiting. They also stayed in another apartment UWS, and they liked this home in Brooklyn Heights much more.
Wow. Where to start.
I'd been eyeing this property for a while and couldn't find anything that came close. My husband and I took our 5 year old daughter and my brother for a week. We had glorious hot weather which we made good use of from our base. We loved that the pier was just a few minutes walk and my daughter loved the water park down there. The location was fantastic for shops, cafes and Brooklyn bridge. As well as much more.
The house was light and airy and very charming. Plenty of space for us and more. The outside area was lovely to enjoy breakfast and an evening drink! The floorboards are a little creaky but this is an old brownstone and is expected. We loved the old charm of it and it encouraged my husband to check out the history of the area. Well worth it!
We had one night with the neighbours playing loud music but it was Memorial weekend and it didn't go on too late. Otherwise it is a lovely neighbourhood and great base for exploring.
My daughter already wants to go back to New York and I wouldn't hesitate on choosing to rent from Kathy and Larry again.
They were very accommodating and was lovely to meet and chat to Kathy.
Thank you again!
The apartment was perfect for our 5 day family visit to New York. Basic but excellent location and has everything we needed!
We really have a great time at the Willow place, plenty room for a family of 5. Close to everything, grocery, laundry ,Brooklyn Bridge, great pizzeria, subway stations and supermarkets. Very clean place, great kitchen. Overall we had a great experience. We recommend this place to families and friends already. Thanks to the owners for their hospitality.
