Subway proximity is the highest priority for New Yorkers. The Lorimer L train to Manhattan and Metropolitan G train to downtown Brooklyn are half a block away at the corner at Union/Metropolitan.
This townhouse is perfectly situated on a quiet residential street yet perched in Brooklyn's, and the country's, hippest urban area neighborhood: Williamsburg. The area is packed with cute restaurants and bars, from Peruvian steak houses to French bistros and even a German beer & barbecue. The neighborhood is also a magnet for young people moving to the city and an influential hub for indie rock, hipster culture, and the local art community. We are amazingly close to downtown Manhattan, Times Square, Soho and Tribeca via the popular L TRAIN subway line that's just a 1-minute walk from the townhouse.
This garden apartment is on the first floor of the building with a private entrance, so there are no stairs to climb. The spacious living room has two windows and plenty of light and air. The kitchen and bedroom windows both lookout into the private garden in the backyard.
The Garden Apartment can accommodate up to four guests: The bedroom has a double/full bed which sleeps 2. There is also a self-inflating AeroBed that sleeps two. Its built-in pump inflates in just 1 minute and deflates just as quickly. While this isn't a traditional mattress is is quite comfortable.
The entire apartment has brand new furnishings, linens and kitchen equipment and is a perfect home base for your trip to New York City.
NOTE: We do have two other apartments in this same townhouse if this one is booked. Check out Listing #321592 our Parlor Apartment, or Listing #344739 our Williamsburg Apartment.

Year Purchased: 2010
About the owner: My partner and I both work in Manhattan and take the L Train in every day. I'm a television producer, my partner is an actor, and our daughter attends school in the city. I'm from Toledo, Ohio and my partner is from Melbourne, Australia so we have LOTS of family and friends visiting us all year round who now stay in our garden apartment and use it as their home-away-from-home. We love helping them find their way around the city and will gladly offer you a few suggestions about NYC as well.
Why the Owner Chose Brooklyn:
We bought this townhouse in 2010 after living in the middle of Manhattan for 16 years and have fallen in love with our new neighborhood. Our previous neighborhood was very old-school residential with massive apartment buildings, while Williamsburg is filled with 3-story townhouses like ours where the neighbors all sit on the front steps and enjoy the street life. The huge influx of artists and young people who recently 'found' the neighborhood because of it's close proximity to Manhattan and relatively inexpensive housing make for a VERY interesting mix on the street and we love it.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
EXTRA Queen size inflatable AERO bed/bedding. What's great about staying in Williamsburg is the EASY access to all the major sites around NYC: Times Square, Broadway, Macy's, the Empire State Building, all the museums, Central Park and the Statue of Liberty. But what's really enjoyable and a real delight are the VERY walkable streets around us packed with both the old-world shops (the perfect cappuccino at Setti Pani bakery) side-by-side with the new art galleries, trendy clothing stores and fun finds (graphic comics books from around the world at Sparacino's).
