Brooklyn At It’s Best!
What a great way to explore NYC! From the first interaction with Ruty right through to the very end , this was a great experience, she was beyond helpful! The house is beautiful, well furnished and spacious and the neighbourhood and neighbours were delightful and super friendly. Easy access to the metro, we managed to explore all five boroughs and on those more leisurely days we had a beautiful place to chill! A real home away from home! We will definitely come back! Thank you Ruty, Dia and Charlene!
summer in Brooklyn
This home was fun to stay in for the novelty of being in a brownstone. It was showing it's age a bit, creaky steps, worn areas, but overall, very nice. A/C in all rooms except kitchen, but the cold air drifted in through fans and A/C in the other room on that level. The walk to the subway was about 5 minutes, with a C line stop. The area around the house was somewhat run down, but we never felt unsafe. We loved eating around the corner at Nagle's Bagels. There is a great supermarket about a 10 minute walk away. The house was well supplied with kitchen items, bed linens, towels.
Thank you for your constructive feedback. The house was built in 1901 and we do our best to maintain upkeep and keep its original charm.
We're glad you enjoyed the house and our exciting neighborhood.
Nagel's Bagels have the best New York bagels!
