Owner purchased this Apartment in 2001
Why Owner chose Bedford-Stuyvesant
I have been living in New York City since 1982. I moved from Manhattan to Williamsburg Brooklyn in 1995, and then from Williamsburg to BedStuy in 2001. My wife and I were looking for a building where we could live and have studio space.
What makes this Apartment unique
The building has a lot of historical character. We renovated but preserved as much of this as we could. The apartment itself has 13 ft ceilings, 2 skylights and 2 windows, which fills it with natural light. You can open the fire gate outside bedroom 1 and there is a small outdoor sitting space. Across the street from us there is an old convent which takes up 3/4 of the block and makes our place especially quiet.

Simple, clean city crash pad.
Luke was great - very friendly and accommodating. The apartment is very unique, spacious, and clean. It is very minimal and a great place if you plan on being out most of the time and need a place to sleep and unwind. I would recommend Luke’s apartment to anyone looking to experience the city who just needs a place to crash. Awesome place! Thanks for a great stay, Luke and family!
Nice spacious apartment. Well equiped. Good communication with owner.
The neighbourhood isn't very special, but don't let that put you off.
We had a great stay!
Très bonne expérience sur Brooklyn!
