About Emma James
I moved from London to LA in 1994 and then to New York in 1995 and I've been here ever since! I lived for 8 years in Greenwich Village in Manhattan and then moved to Brooklyn in 2002.
Emma James purchased this Apartment in 2005
Why Emma James chose Bedford-Stuyvesant
We bought the property because it had a garden and there was more space for our family. Once we moved in, we discovered that we live on the friendliest block in Brooklyn!

Clean, modern and a great location
Me and my partner stayed in the studio apartment for a week and we loved every second! It has everything you could need for a busy holiday like New York, a lovely bathroom, a handy kitchenette, a super comfy big bed and a television. The journey to Manhattan took about 20 minutes and was very easy! We much preferred coming home to a more quiter area every day rather than staying in the busy city all day and all night, being not very big drinkers it was nice to come back in the evening and have some down time. The local area is full of handy shops and places to eat and the subway is a two minute walk just around the corner. The owner Emma was extremely accommodating and gave us tons of information like directions to places and great tourist spots thank you Emma!
When we return to New York this will definitely be where we want to stay in the future.
Une adresse à recommander
Je souhaite vivement vous recommander cette adresse pour passer un agréable séjour à New York.L'appartement trés confortable est idéalement géolocalisé ( 20 mn environ en métro jusqu'à midtown) et vous permet chaque soir de profiter d'un autre aspect de la vie new yorkaise à Brooklin.Je remercie Emma pour sa disponibilité et la gentillesse de son accueil .
Fantastic Base for 2 from which to explore NYC
Great host, prompt with replying to emails. Very helpful.
Apartment was clean and comfortable. Well set up with basic kitchen (make breakfast or a drink/ serve up take out - perfect for us). Bed and TV were well used after a long day exploring the city.
Subway stop, grocery store, laundry, coffee, take out and good restaurants all within 1-2 blocks. Would have liked a little folder of take out menus/ list of good restaurants in the area. Did manage to find a gorgeous little Mexican restaurant 3 mins walk away. Lovely neighborhood with friendly people.
We arrived late at night and left early in the morning. Emma was more than accommodating and made it very easy. I have visited NYC before this trip and found this a much better experience than staying in a hotel. Would recommend to anyone visiting New York.
Thank you for writing this review. I am pleased that you enjoyed your stay.
There is a folder in the studio with lots of information about local restaurants and things to do in New York. It includes links to websites where you can order in food. We are very spoiled for choice when it comes to food delivery in New York and can literally order in from hundreds of restaurants!
Future guests--please text me the minute you need additional information and I will respond!
Perfect Location. Live like a New Yorker!
We stayed in Emma's studio apartment for a week over the New Year period. The apartment is well equipped for 2 people. We had all the facilities to make our breakfast before heading off exploring each day. And when we came home in the evening to the lovely warm studio (considering it was -11 outside) we could relax with a glass of wine watching a movie on the TV before a good night's sleep in the very comfy bed. Facilities around the apartment were very good. It's only a 5 minute walk around the corner and you're at the Subway entrance that runs direct into Manhatten every 10 minutes and only costs 2.75 $ each journey which is amazing considering what we pay for transport in the UK. We found a lovely Organic Juice Bar on our way to the Subway and enjoyed trying something new each morning. We also found a great bar serving all different kinds of beers and ciders and a restaurant within 2 blocks of the apartment which was so good we ate there twice! I must add the people of Brooklyn are so friendly. On New Years Eve we walked to Grand Army Plaza at Prospect Park in Brooklyn where they had laid on Fireworks at Midnight as well as serving Hot Chocolate and there was a band playing all for free. Walking home everyone constantly wishing us Happy New Year. We felt very safe indeed. Overall I would give Emmas's studio flat 5 out of 5 stars for giving us the opportunity to live like a New Yorker for a week which I much prefer than staying in a characterless hotel room for a week. Thanks Emma for your hospitality including arranging our cab back to the airport on our last day.
Estupenda estancia en Brooklyn!
Cómodo y tranquilo con lo necesario para una visita a New York. Muy bien comunicado con el metro a 3 minutos andando y cafeterías y supermercados alrededor. Muy pendiente Emma en todo por si necesitábamos algo o para aclararnos cualquier duda.Repetiría sin dudarlo y de hecho espero volver.
Very nice and comfortable apartment
The apartment is small, but comfortable enough for two people. Has everything necessary for a vacation in New York. Emma (the owner) was very nice and attentive. There are a few grocery stores very close by and the subway station is just 2 blocks away and a subway ride to mid manhattan takes about 20 min.
When we arrived, everything had just been thoroughly cleaned and we were allowed a late checkout the day of our flight. I'd really recommend this place for the price/quality relation.
Thank you so much for posting your review!
Future guests, please note that the studio is only big enough for 2 people however I have a larger apartment also available that is perfect for 4 people and can accommodate up to 6.
