We are business owners/designers who have lived in the neighborhood with our family for almost 10 years. We love the quiet on our block and the small town feel - yet happy that we're a stones throw from Manhattan and walking distance to some of Brooklyn's best and most vibrant restaurants, performance spaces, bars and cafes.
The Owner purchased this apartment in 2008
So nice to have so much more room (and free parking) compared to staying in a hotel. It's an old house so the floor are a little squeaky, but very nicely done inside. Neighborhood feels very safe, easy access to groceries, subway, and a handful of restaurants. Owners very helpful.
I had the best Newyork experience, the unit in historical house, and it equipped with every thing. The area is quit and family friendly, there are parking for the car , and the car has to be removed in certain tims for street cleaning, I think in Tuseday and Thursday frome 11am to 1 pm. The unit is secured. The subway is 8 min waking and can take you to Manhatan. The area has all what you need from groceries to pharmacies and all in walking distance .There has a small play ground it is around 4 min walking.
I stayed here for 4 nights with my husband and 2 small children. We had everything we needed to have a great vacation. We were able to invite family over for dinner which was wonderful. We were able to walk down the street to a corner store to purchase groceries when needed. The location was close to a subway that we navigated with the help of my cousin to go into Manhattan. I truly enjoyed my time in New York and will recommend this apartment rental.
A great option to stay in the heart of Brooklyn. The apartment, indeed, is well-cared for, spacious, high ceilings, sizable kitchen, beds are comfortable. Old world charm with modern amenities, it has been restored very tastefully, to our opinion. The owners provide plenty of instructions on everything pertaining to your stay. A few things to consider before you decide to rent:
1. You have to like the old Victorian "touch". The place is excellently restored and remodeled but if you stay on the first floor in the Master bedroom you can hear people walking and talking (when they are loud) upstairs.
2. As it had been mentioned, the apartment is a great option for families with kids as the smaller bedrooms is a walk-through to get to the Master bedroom.
3. The neighborhood is quiet and it felt safe. However, it is a drive or a subway ride to either Manhattan of the Brooklyn Art Museum. Parking was not a problem, though.
The apartment was tastefully decorated and immaculate with everything I needed for my stay. The homeowners were quick and responsive to any questions I had. I would definitely recommend staying here. Easy parking in front of the house and I had an excellent dinner nearby at Bunker Vietnamese.
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.
