About Jamie Grady

We have roots in the midwest and Long Island, NY. We have lived in Manhattan and San Francisco and traveled quite a bit before our kids were born. We feel lucky to have found this amazing community in Brooklyn, are thrilled to call it home and delighted to share it with you!

Jamie Grady purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Jamie Grady chose Gowanus

We find this part of Brooklyn to have it all - delicious bakeries, inviting cafes and inspired restaurants plus original and eclectic boutiques, many family-owned businesses and beautiful parks - all with the convenience of any easy commute to the city.

What makes this apartment unique

Location. Location. Location! You can find just about everything you may want or need within footsteps. Half block off Smith Street, one of two main drags of the area, filled with bars, restaurants and unique boutiques. A block and a half to Court Street, the other main drag of the neighborhood, with it's decades-old Italian delis and bakeries will bring you back to the Italian roots of the neighborhood.

We fell in love with the community-feeling of the block where residents hold an annual block party, block-long stoop sale and annual pot-luck dinner.

Good Price, Very Clean

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much! Jamie was accommodating with our early arrival which we appreciated. The place was very clean, spacious with modern kitchen and bath. The place was warm even though it was snowing outside...but we opened windows as needed without a problem. Beds were very comfortable. Walking through one bedroom to get to another is a fairly common set up in NYC and not a problem if you're not too modest. Walk up to stoop is about a full story and then there is a healthy flight of stairs inside (if my 84 year old mother could do it without a problem, most people can). The walk to the subway was a short 2 blocks. There is a nice place to get essentials and great panini's right on the corner that is open all night. And, there is a great, cheap eat-in bagel place (that has a lot more than bagels) just 2.5 blocks away - and other places to eat too. Would definitely stay again.

Solid flat

  • 3 of 5

This is a good place to stay in Brooklyn. Safe neighborhood, restaurants galore within walking distance, and just a couple of blocks to the subway. Only drawbacks were relatively loud upstairs neighbors and the continuous chirping of a smoke detector on the first floor that kept me up some nights. I asked the owners to address the smoke detector early on, but it was never fixed. Pluses include comfy beds, updated kitchen and bathroom.

Great location, clean apartment

  • 5 of 5

The four of us enjoyed our stay in Brooklyn. It's a great location near trains and plenty of things within walking distance. The apartment is really clean and comfortable. To get to the second bedroom you have to go thru the first bedroom but that was ok as we were all good friends. We never met Jamie but she was quick to answer questions and it was easy to check in and out.
