- One of the great things about this apartment is its ':walk-ability'. It sits in the middle of a vibrant, international village, and you can go anywhere or get anything - on foot, or with a car that will affordably pick you up in 5 minutes and take you anywhere. But when you are at home, it is quiet and restful, and feels like the country - at least, to a New Yorker!...moreless

Why the Owner Chose Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NY, USA:
This is a large house for the City, but the sun, nearby East River air and gardens make it feel like the country. After living in Tribeca, Manhattan, I felt as though I bought the gardens and the house came with them. I live and work in the building and one floor is often available for guests. It is quiet for New York, restful, out of the way and private - and 2 blocks away from everything!
The Unique Benefits at this Guest House:
Fresh breeze drifts in from the river - there are actually windows on all 4 sides! The garden is full of the scent of roses, lilies, honeysuckle, violets, lavender and herbs just outside the windows. ....It's great to walk around the corner early in the morning for newspapers, cappuccino and home made croissants, and sit at sidewalk cafe tables and meet the locals!
