It's a 5 minute walk to the nearest subway station at Franklin Ave, where you can catch the 2,3,4 & 5 trains, all of which run express to Manhattan. It's a 15 minute ride to Wall St, 25 minute ride to Union Square and 30 minutes to Grand Central Station.

We're just a 10 minute walk away from the amazing Brooklyn Botanical Gardens which should not be missed ! Other points of reference: 10 minutes to the Brooklyn Museum, a 20 minute subway ride to Coney Island, 5 minute subway ride to famous BAM (highly acclaimed music and theatre performances) .

We're located in the neighborhood Crown Heights, Brooklyn, a working class neighborhood on the border on the more affluent neighborhood Prospect Heights. We have the best of both worlds: affordable living with the option of hopping over to the next neighborhood for trendy restaurants and higher end boutiques featuring local designers.
