Property description

This is an urban garden apartment. You are in a semi-urban area. That is tree-lined streets with blocks and blocks of historic (19th century) row houses. This area is called "Brownstone Brooklyn", although many of the houses are not brownstone, just predominately. There are limestone houses and red-brick also, such as this one. It has four stories with the ground floor being an apartment with a separate entrance under the stairs in front. Because these are row houses they do not have windows on the side, so basically there are front rooms and rear rooms. In our case the front room contains a living room with a small kitchen. It also includes a pull-out sofa. The rear space includes the bedroom and bathroom. The garden is in the rear. It is not a large apartment, being about 15 wide and 40 feet long (approx, 4450 square feet). The style is rather antique (see photos). Because there is a kitchen, we do not provide breakfast, but there are various eateries in the area.

The main advantage of this apartment is its location in New York City and Brooklyn, as well as the garden which is unique among rented properties in this area. There is easy and timely access to any area by subway which is the way people travel here. A car is disadvantageous.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1984

About the owner: My wife and I, with family, lived in South America for 8 years, and when we returned to New York City we wanted to live in the city near my work in Lower Manhattan. For a number of years we just rented this apartment, but then in 1992 we decided to rent it on an occasional basis so that we could use it ourselves for friends when we wanted.

Why the Owner Chose Brooklyn:
This apartment is on the ground floor in our building, which we bought as our home. However, any apartment in New York City (we live in the Brooklyn section which is 25 minutes away from Times Square by subway from our corner) can be considered a vacation rental due to the attraction of the city, although we did not buy it as such as I mentioned above.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Guests have all the attractions of New York City within 45 minutes by subway. They also have most of the main cultural attractions of Brooklyn within walking distance.
