A Shaker Hymn of simplicty, comfort and good taste
Kermit and Azadeh have worked very hard to create a warm and welcoming apartment that made our nine day visit to New York a delight. They renovated this hundred year old apartment into a Shaker hymn of simplicity, comfort and good taste. It was a wonderful place to return to after a long hard day crammed with visiting museums, stores and some 10,000 people on the subways. The kitchen is spacious and well appointed and there are plentiful closets. Kermit thoughtfully installed a ceiling light in the huge shower in the updated bathroom. The dining room has a long refectory table, so you can spread out the treasures that you acquired during the day and admire them while eating dinner.
There is a corner grocery store a block from the apartment, and a supermarket two blocks away. There is a lovely coffee shop three blocks away, which became our daily stop on the way to the subway station, which is 5 blocks from the apartment. Kermit and Azadeh live two doors down, so they were always available to help.
We highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a less expensive alternative to the pricey Manhattan rentals. Our thanks to Kermit and Azadeh for helping to make our vacation the best one ever!!!!
Thank you so much, Eniko! It was our pleasure to meet you and your family and are thrilled to know you enjoyed your stay.
Great place! Would stay again and recommed to friends for sure!
Cozy. Comfortable and room for everyone. Great stay.
Neat little apartment!
We booked this apartment at rather short notice after being let down. The property manager was great and her communication about the property and details for arrival were both excellent.
The apartment was very clean and had all the things needed to make for a comfortable stay. The kitchen was well equipped and had everything we needed to cook with.
The location was great and we found getting into and out of Manhattan really easy using the L line; we really were only 25 minutes away. The local area itself was OK, a bit limited on good restaurants ( although there was information on good local restaurants in the apartment) and the supermarket was very expensive.
Overall we had a great stay and would recommend this accommodation to anyone travelling to New York.
Stylish, accommodating, great location!
We loved this apartment. The kitchen is amazing and updated. Great space for dining, lounging, many beds and extra if you need them. Parking was easy and convenient. The pre-arrival and departure instructions were easy. No complaints, I cannot wait to come back!
LOVED THIS PLACE!!
Great location to our family, easy to get to JFK and into the city. We absolutely loved this place and would definitely stay here again. Everything was perfect. My only complaint was the trundle bed was very hard. I hate to even say anything, but thought you'd want to know. The decor is amazing and so nice to have a place to do wash too.
Perfect for our visitors
This place was awesome. It looked just as it did in the photos. I wish it was my apartment! The one thing I would mention is that the two bedrooms are connected and if you are in the corner bedroom you either have to walk through the master bedroom or the (external) hallway to get to the bathroom or rest of the apartment. This is a typical railroad style in NYC and I may have just overlooked it in the description. Anyway, it worked fine for us and the in laws really got to know each other!
Straddling the neighborhoods of Bushwick, Brooklyn and Ridgewood, Queens, the apartment is 5 blocks away from the Dekalb Street 'L' train station in Brooklyn��one of the best subway lines in the city. Union Square, the heart of downtown Manhattan, is only 15 minutes away via a direct subway ride; Williamsburg, Brooklyn's stylish boutiques, bars and restaurants are only a 7 minute train ride away. Ours is a quieter, more residential neighborhood, but it is in an exciting stage of growth. In the last 5 years there has been a huge influx of artists and creatives in our immediate area. As a result, there is now a solid (and rapidly growing) number of stylish cafes, restaurants, wine bars, art galleries, yoga studios, and a great 24-hour gourmet/organic grocery store all within a 10-12 minute walk from the apartment. There are also local Italian bakeries, Halal butcher shops, Equadorian bodegas, Polish food markets and the best tasting Mexican tamales we've ever come across. All relevant information can be found in our Guest Welcome binder in the apartment and we hope that you will explore these local gems during your visit.
