About Jeanne Korin
We've been living in New York City for over 20 years and have seen much positive change over the years! Married in 1998 in Central Park we are enjoying raising our two boys in the excitement of city life. We decided to settle down in this quiet neighborhood to be close to the city but away from it when we come home. Our family takes advantage of all that New York has to offer including parks, museums, theater and sporting events. Originally from Toronto and Binghamton, NY we cannot imagine feeling more at home any place else but here.
Jeanne Korin purchased this Apartment in 1999
Why Jeanne Korin chose Greenpoint
We would like to have our guests appreciate our neighborhood and location as much as we do. Staying with us offers vacation travelers a taste of a uniquely diverse Brooklyn neighborhood experience while also enjoying the convenient location to Manhattan. When we travel, we like to "do as the locals do". This is also what we are offering our visitors.
What makes this Apartment unique
We are centrally located in the northwest corner of Brooklyn 2 blocks from the East River. We are close to several major bridges and tunnels. Walking distance to public transportation, and Zipcar locations, fabulous restaurants, galleries, bars, live music, delicious Polish meat markets and bargain shopping. We are also a short walk to the 7 train which takes you to 42nd St. in one stop or the US OPEN in the opposite direction. The brand new East River Ferry is a six block walk to India St. and the E. River. We are as close as you can get to Manhattan without staying in it! Just stay in Greenpoint! You'll be glad you did!

Quiet, relaxing stay in convenient, eclectic neighborhood
Jeanne and George's apartment was perfect for our family, including 2 teens. We were on a college visit and seeking something near the city, yet away from the loud hubbub. We loved the Greenpoint neighborhood, its markets, restaurants, Polish roots and easy access to Williamsburg and Manhattan. The apartment was spotless, a good size for 4, private and well appointed. Even in sweltering 90° days, the lower-level apartment was comfortable. We eventually met our hosts toward the end of our stay. Charming people who valued or privacy, yet I felt I could contact with any questions or concerns. We'd return!
My son and I spent a wonderful 4 days in this apartment and could not have been more pleased. Jeanne has thought of every detail down to soap and shampoo. Kitchen nicely stocked with full size refrigerator so easy to buy groceries and save some money, plenty of storage and closets and bed was comfy. Greenpoint is such a nice area and away from the hectic city. Much better than staying in a cramped hotel. Transportation to the city is easy with subway stops and ferry just a few blocks away. This apartment is a bargain and Jeanne is absolutely the best to work with.
First visit to New York
My Wife and I spent a wonderful week in New York. We deliberately chose to stay outside Manhattan and were lucky enough to find this wonderful apartment. The apartment itself was more that we could have hoped for. We visited in March (which even for a Scottish couple) was really cold, Even though it was bitter cold the apartment was always warm and cosy.
Greenpoint itself was a great area, with lots of different things available, the choice of restaurants and coffee shops was excellent.
I cant speak highly enough of Jeanne and George, other than to say you'd be a fool not to seriously consider renting this apartment
Loved our stay here!
We stayed here for a full week in July and had a great experience from the moment we booked to the day we left. The owner was wonderful and very responsive to what little needs we had - the apartment truly had everything we needed! Not only fully equipped, but spotless - clean, clean, clean! The bed was comfortable, the AC unit worked great (it was really hot during our visit), the bedroom had a 6 drawer dresser (nice to be able to unpack) and a closet, bathroom had a good-sized cabinet to store all toiletries, kitchen was fully stocked with everything you needed to cook with (i.e. pots, pans, etc.) and had an iron and counter top ironing board. Location was great - a safe quiet little street. Up the block is one of the neighborhood's main streets (Manhattan Ave.) with restaurants, coffee shops (local ones, as well as a Starbucks), grocery stores, bars, laundromats, corner markets, etc. The laundromat we used had a drop-off same-day service as long as you dropped off before noon - decently priced and worth it. We worked out everyday at Otom Gym. They charged us $10 per day and was maybe a 6-7 block walk. Franklin Street is really cute too - trendy with more restaurants, shops, bars, etc. To catch the subway (7 Train) it's about a 10-15 minute walk. It's a nice walk with beautiful views of the city - especially at night! To catch the G Train, it's about a 5-7 minute walk. We walked to both of these trains quite a bit, during our stay, late at night and felt safe. We highly recommend this apartment if you're looking for a cool visit to NYC and out of the hustle-n-bustle of the city - you'll love it!
Wonderful neighborhood and a quick trip to Manhattan
We stayed here in September, 2011 and had a wonderful time. The apartment has been rehabbed in the past 18 months and is clean and neat on a quiet side street. If driving in from out-of-town you could probably even find parking on the nearby streets.
The Greenpoint subway stop if four blocks away and we spent extensive time in both Brooklyn and Manhattan eateries. There are dozens of excellent choices these days in Brooklyn (and don't miss Paulie Gee's pizzeria). The owners are friendly and very helpful with neighborhood recommendations.
