Very well equipped (thanks IKEA ! 😀)..we didn't miss anything. Perfect for 5/6 people (we were 5) - the backyard so nice for breakfast or aperitive ! And most of all, its incredible situation ! So close from the subway...either C/R on one side or all the others (at least 10 different lines) on the other side..no more than 2 minute walking distance. (Same for the Target to make shopping and buy anything you need) .sooo convenient. We reached Manhattan in 15 minutes. Stephanie answered so quickly to all our assistance requests (starting process of the laundry machine, or the electric problem...). A perfect stay and I highly recommend this place if you are 4-6 people

Jack and Marisa are wonderful, a lot of thought has evidently gone in to including cooking and entertainment tools that make it a real home away from home, the bathroom is amazing (my wife likes large tubs, and this one was as nice or nicer than ours at home), and the bikes (2) were great. Needless to say, the location is superb. For anyone wanting to experience Brooklyn, Prospect Park, or even Manhattan (it is a few minute walk to the Flatbush lines), this place is perfect. The back garden is even private (Jack uses his deck up stairs).

                                                                                                      There are plenty of other people who have already said great things about this apartment and Elito who manages it for the owner, and its all totally true, so I'll give some other tips instead. NY City operates a city wide bicycle use system called Citibike The bikes cost $12 for one day or $24 for 3 days and if you want more time than that, join up via the website and its cheaper. The system works really well if you use it right and that means a bit of planing ahead. You only get 30 minutes with your bike before you have to re-dock it at a stand and wait 2 minutes before getting it, or another bike out (most stands have up to 50 bikes). Unless you really gun it, you probably won't have enough time on one hire to leave the stand closest to the apartment and get to the next stand across Brooklyn, Manhattan or Williamsburg bridges, so you need to find a stand close to the Brooklyn side of the bridge to swap over. The free Citibike app is perfect for that. The whole idea is you grab a bike, swap as many times as it takes to get to your destination (e.g. Ground Zero) and then you leave the bike at a stand while you spend your time in the area. When you are ready to move on, go to the closest stand, re-insert your credit card to verify who you are, and it spits of a code that you use to unlock your bike and off you go. You don't need bike locks, or helmets. Getting up to the apex of the 3 bridges is easy enough even if you are very unfit, but it will probably take you 10 minutes of slow 1st gear grind (or walking your bike) to get there. (FYI, Brooklyn bridge is the prettiest and easiest to get over on a bike although you do have to carry it up a short set of stairs on the Brooklyn side). You can easily and safely ride throughout Manhatten but I'd avoid riding through Central Park with Citibikes. There are no Citibike stands inside the park, and with the 30 minutes max time limit you'll waste your time hunting for a stand instead of enjoying the park. Walk Central Park (in sections) instead, using a Citibike to get you to each section from outside the park. If you want to go through Manhatten, in quick time then get over to the West side (alongside Hudson river) and you'll find a cycle/ walking path that goes all the way.
