Brooklyn apartment description

Make this charming apartment your home away from home in Brooklyn! With a private entrance in our brownstone home, the apartment has old Brooklyn charm with modern comfort. Located on a quiet, tree-lined block that has won second place in the Greenest Block in Brooklyn contest for the last 3 years. It's just a 3-minute walk to the subway station (the 'A' line, an express train) and a short subway ride to attractions in Brooklyn and Manhattan (about 20 minutes to Greenwich Village or downtown Manhattan). Grocery stores, coffee shops, restaurants, and other amenities are within short walking distance. A great spot for families (we welcome children 6 years and older). A perfect base for exploring all New York City has to offer. We live underneath the vacation rental, so it's easy for us to receive you and give you the keys, and we're happy to recommend our favorite spots and things to do!

                          Located on a quiet, residential block in Stuyvesant Heights, Brooklyn that won second-place in the Greenest Block in Brooklyn contest in 2010, 2011 and 2012. Grocery store, coffee shop, and excellent restaurants (Italian, seafood, southern American cuisine) are within short walking distance. It's just a three-minute walk to the subway station (the A line, an express train) and a short subway ride to sightseeing in Manhattan (about 20 minutes to Greenwich Village or downtown Manhattan). Enjoy the neighborhood charm of Brooklyn and explore Brooklyn attractions such as the Brooklyn Museum of Art, Prospect Park, and the Brooklyn Academy of Music. At the same time, you'll have easy access to the exciting culture and nightlife of Manhattan. A perfect base for exploring all New York City has to offer! Please note: we have a minimum stay of 5 nights. Check our calendar for dates (frequently updated).

                           

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2007

                          About the owner: A translator and a teacher, we live underneath the vacation rental (it has its own private entrance) with our two kids. Some of our favorite things to do in New York are walking across the Brooklyn Bridge and eating in Chinatown, visiting great museums like the Met, MoMA, and the Brooklyn Museum, and enjoying cupcakes from Magnolia Bakery while strolling through Greenwich Village.

                          Why the Owner Chose Brooklyn:
                          We love this calm, quiet block with friendly neighbors, and the fact that it's so close to the A train with easy access into Manhattan.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                          The apartment is spacious and filled with light, and we've stocked it with local magazines, guidebooks, and a collection of DVDs with movies set in Brooklyn and New York City.
