Please use the EMAIL OWNER button to reach us. We reply promptly. Our home is a typical row house (zoned R6B), making us exempt from NY short-term rental laws.

Subway proximity is the highest priority for New Yorkers. The L TRAIN (Lorimer St.) to Manhattan is ONE MINUTE WALK from our home at the corner at Union/Metropolitan. As is the G TRAIN (Metropolitan Ave) to downtown Brooklyn/Queens

Our townhouse is perfectly situated on a quiet residential street in Brooklyn's hippest neighborhood: Williamsburg. The area is packed with great restaurants, bars, deli's, bakeries and vintage stores. Nearby is McCarren Park, The Knitting Factory, and Union Pool. On our block alone: Chimu, a Peruvian steak house, M Noodle, Kings County Chinese (nouveau), Setti Pane Bakery. French, Japanese, Southern BBQ, Italian all a short walk away. As is the new Apple Store. 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 regularly host parents from all over the world who are visiting their children and grandchildren.

Union Square/14st St in Manhattan is 7 minutes on the subway. We are 20 minutes from downtown Manhattan and to Times Square. Closer still to the West and East Village, Soho, Tribeca, Union Square and 5th Ave via the popular L TRAIN subway line: One minute from our townhouse and then a 5 minute ride into Manhattan.

This is a private apartment with a private entrance. The spacious living room is open to the kitchen & dining area so there's plenty of light and air. The rear windows both lookout into the private garden in the backyard. The front windows look onto the street and front garden.

The apartment can accommodate up to SIX guests: The bedroom has a queen bed which sleeps 2. The second bedroom, accessed off the master bedroom, has bunk beds (two singles). There is also a queen size AeroBed that self-inflates in 1 minute and deflates just as quickly. While this isn't a traditional mattress is extremely comfortable.

The entire apartment is newly furnished, linens and a fully-stocked kitchen. A perfect home base for your trip to New York City. Owners live on site, in a separate residence.

Car: Not Necessary

Best reason to book: This apartment is a 1-minute walk to the L Subway line, which takes you directly into the center of Manhattan, so in 5-7 minutes you'll be in Union Square. And our location is in fabulously hip & hopping Williamsburg, so you get both a small happening neighborhood feel as well as immediate proximity to Manhattan.

McCarren Park is only five blocks away with running track, skateboard park, playground, tennis and lovely grounds for an afternoon stroll and people watching.

24 laundromat is one block away and a dry cleaners is half a block away.

Full grocery store is a 5 minute walk, two small city groceries are a half block away.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: My husband and I both work in Manhattan and take the L Train to work. I'm a television producer, my husband a Broadway actor. Our daughter attends high school in Manhattan. 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 rental 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 Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NY, USA:
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 Townhome:
What's great about staying in Williamsburg is the EASY access to all the major sites around NYC: Union Square Shopping and Farmers' market, 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 Italian bakery), vintage clothing, side-by-side with art galleries, great restaurants, stores and fun finds (graphic comics books from around the world at Sparacino's). Dont leave W'burg without trying Kings Count Chinese just around the corner on Skillman Ave. Extra Queen size inflatable Aero Bed in all apartments.
