Brooklyn Apartment Rental Photos and Description

3 bed, 1 bath, sleeps 8

If this apartment is not available, please also check our other private apartment in our house. HomeAway Rental Number 3731679.

This private apartment is centrally located in one of Brooklyn's hottest up and coming neighborhoods. We live in and own the entire building and we rent out two different private apartments. The other one is listed at homeaway Listing 3731679

This apartment has 2.5 private separate bedrooms which all offer privacy for those who need it. This is the top floor of a newly renovated Brownstone. It's location to all subways gets you to where you want to be in minutes. Many restaurants and bars just steps away from apartment and very easy access to Manhattan, the Brooklyn Museum, Prospect Park, The Brooklyn Botanic Gardens, Coney Island and Downtown Brooklyn Shopping. We are also just 3 stops to the brand new Barclays Stadium , Home of the Brooklyn Nets basketball team and New York Islanders hockey team. Our Neighborhood is designated as an historical landmark area with most Brownstones over 120 years old. This particular area is very famous for being the home of many famous stars from Carl Sagan, Chris Rock, Jay-Z, Bobby Fischer, Lena Horne, Jackie Robinson, Notorious B.I.G., Michael Jordan and on and on and on. Neighborhood is a nice mix of multi-cultural backgrounds.

The unit sleeps up to 8 people. It is situated on the 4th floor and is completely renovated with all the modern amenities. Old world charm with all the modern conveniences. Also included are: stereo, DVD player, a 32' flat screen T.V. and cable.

The neighborhood is very quiet and safe and extremely friendly. At the center lies Fulton Street lively and buzzing with activities. Only 15 min from Manhattan on the A/C train and 20 min from trendy Williamsburg. This is a great place to vacation, relax and live like a local.

The best part of this apartment is the neighborhood it is located in. Very friendly and close to NYC attractions and live like a local in a beautiful newly renovated classic and historic Brownstone across from a 19th century Armory.

Ideaal voor familie voor een week of meer in NYC

  • 4 of 5

Een mooi appartement op 15 minuten van de metro met directe verbinding naar Manhattan (neem de A-trein, die gaat sneller). Alles wat je nodig hebt is aanwezig. Een kleurrijke, veilige buurt (heel NY is veilig) met restaurants en veel winkels. Geert en familie zijn erg gastvrij en behulpzaam.

Tip: neem de tijd om New York te bezoeken en kom voor minstens 1 week of zelfs 2 weken, dan kan je ook naar een gospelmis (Brooklyn Tabernacle), een sportwedstrijd (baseball, NBA, ...), Tom's restaurant voor een Amerikaans ontbijt (Brooklyn) en het strand (Coney Island - hotdog bij Nathan's).

excellente location

  • 5 of 5

Le propriétaire est trés chaleureux, le logement très agréable, à 15 minutes à pied du métro pour se rendre à Manhattan ou même à l'aéroport JFK (qui est aussi accessible en 1 h en bus à toute heure du jour ou de la nuit). Il y a des commerces à proximité et un parc avec des jeux pour enfant : Brooklyn est un quartier délicieux...

Apartment was nice

  • 3 of 5

The apartment was nice and tidy and the owner was extremely accomodating. The only issue we had was the travel time into the city, which was the reason for the visit.

Good value

  • 4 of 5

I had friendly contacts and exchanges before the trip startetd with the home owner whoalso provided useful tips. The flat is modern and fairly confortable considering that is in an old brownstone. The decoration is nice. One room leads into antother so there is not much privacy but for a family this is no problem. The walk to the subway is more 15 minutes than 10 but the station is well connected to Manhattan.
