Brooklyn Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 1 bath, sleeps 5

This private apartment is situated in the section of Bedford Stuyvesant that is landmarked and convenient to Manhattan. It is truly a 5-7 minute walk to the A train which is an express subway to/from Manhattan and JFK airport. The apartment is located on the second floor of a nearly 150 year old renovated townhouse. Marble mantles, original hardwood floors and mouldings remain while the kitchen and bath have been updated with a vintage, modern aesthetic. The kitchen is fully equipped for cooking and there are high ceilings throughout this sunlit space. The furniture, textiles and art were carefully chosen to enhance the clean, comfortable environment.

For more information read REVIEWS of my other listing, property ID # 917823.

About Owner/Manager

I work in Brooklyn real estate and I enjoy getting to know people from all over the world. I feel fortunate to be able to share my beautiful home & neighborhood with my guests. I particularly love that my daughter Ruby, at age 3, is able to meet so many interesting people. She gets very excited when new guests arrive and often presents them with a drawling or shows them a new dance she has learned.

Owner/Manager purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Owner/Manager chose Brooklyn

As Southern transplants, my husband & I knew we wanted to make our home in a neighborhood with a strong sense of community, an interesting history and a culturally diverse population. Our home was built in 1864, it is located on one of the loveliest blocks in the area. Inside the apartment you will find unique furnishings I've collected over the years and photos given to me by friends in the NYC artist community.

What makes this apartment unique

A trip to New York should be pleasantly unforgettable. With my guidance, I can save my guests time, money and I hope make the experience less intimidating. Since I live in the building traveling stress is decreased - I personally welcome my guests upon arrival and make myself available for any questions.

Very nice place in a safe quiet and charming neighbourhood

  • 4 of 5

The property is very well located. The subway (express line A and local line C, Utica Avenue Station) is very near and it is a quite short and pleasant trip to Manhattan or other parts of Brooklyn. Count a five to ten minute walk from the apartment to the subway. The JFK airport is also at a reasonable distance, we were able to get all the way from there with our 3 daughters and all the luggage without too much pain.

The owner, Ashley, was kind enough to wait for us until 9PM and explain everything about the apartment and the neighbourhood.

The apartment itself is charming with basic but sufficient comfort. Hot water, a place to cook, enough beds for 5 persons to sleep, how could we ask for more ? Almost no noise at night, the street is a line of historic and pretty brownstones, one of the window faces the Mount Lebanon Church.

Excellent place at a reasonable price, warmly recommended.

Very pleasant place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was nice, VERY clean, and got great natural light. Huge bedroom, small but functional kitchen. Short walk to the A (express) train into Manhattan. Pretty quiet location. The owner's directions to the apartment and instructions for getting in were clear and easy to follow. She also made herself available by text to answer questions. I chose the rental because it's very to some friends I was visiting, but I would stay there again even if they moved.

Wonderful Apartment & Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 4 nights and had a wonderful time exploring New York! The owner Ashley was very nice and greeted us when we arrived. My husband and I loved the apartment. It's a very quiet neighborhood and we always felt safe. It's a very short walk to the Utica subway station from the apartment. We will definitely visit again and have recommended to friends.

Clean, quiet, great location!

  • 5 of 5

Felt like a real local staying in a hundred year old Brownstone in Brooklyn. Enjoyed exploring the Bedford-Stuyvesant (Bed-Stuy) neighborhood. Several great restaurants within walking distance. Close to the Utica subway station - only 20 minute ride into Manhattan. Will definitely go back!

Visitor to New York

  • 2 of 5

Being unfamiliar with New York and Brooklyn and due to the high price of hotels in Manhattan, we decided to stay in Brooklyn and commute into the City each day. This apartment was very clean. The bed was not very comfortable and the day bed in the bedroom was not comfortable. The house is very old and smells old. At first being two single females, we did not feel very safe walking to the subway (which is a short walk) and riding the subway into Manhattan; however, we were safe and it was an easy commute, but crowded. This area of Brooklyn is very old and most places are very run-down with lots of graffiti. This apartment was okay, but in the future we will pay the price and stay in Manhattan. The friend of the owner of the apartment that let us into the apartment was very friendly and helpful. We never talked with the owner.

Owner's Response: Wow. It is advisable to read the apartment description and other information provided on the website, one may even want to research the area they plan to visit. Words like "historic," "landmark" or even "150 year old building" should tell one something. I think the only thing to take from this review is the apartment is very clean, the area is safe, it is close to the subway and an easy ride to Manhattan. Also that a 150 year old building is old.

Located in the historic Stuyvesant Heights section of Bedford Stuyvesant, on one of the most coveted blocks in the area, the apartment is surrounded by well kept brownstones and two beautiful churches. Bed Stuy is centrally located, bordering other popular Brooklyn neighborhoods such as Williamsburg, Clinton Hill, Prospect Heights, and Bushwick. Travel throughout the five boroughs is very fast with the A express or C local trains, just 2.5 blocks from your vacation home. (There is a closer subway entrance in Fulton Park, which is NOT shown on this map.) Lower Manhattan, Prospect Park, Brooklyn Museum & Botanical Gardens are all about 20 minutes of train travel. Times Square is 35 minutes away and multiple beaches can be reached within 45 minutes. Choose the bus (at the corner) or a train for a jaunt to Williamsburg, Greenpoint and Bushwick points of interest. Within three blocks of the apartment there are wonderful restaurants like Peaches & Saraghina, laundromats, coffee shops, grocery stores, a wine bar, a bike shop, a library, parks and playgrounds.
