Modern Artsy Flat In Hip Part Of Brooklyn
This 2nd floor apartment is a sweet, small space on at the back of the house, limiting the street noise activity. The house is an old 1910 frame building, with layers of history, normal wear and some recent updates. It is a family-friendly building, owner-occupied, with another family on the 3rd floor.
The kitchen is tucked in an alcove, but open to the dining/living area. All kitchen appliances and fixtures are modern, with a granite counter and copper back-splash.
There is a large entry closet and a smaller closet in the bedroom. The bathroom has a standard tub with shower, dual flush toilet and stainless industrial sink. All linens (towels and sheets) are provided. This apartment offers two places to sleep, both accommodating double sleepers.
The living room/dining area windows face north and west; allowing a lot of indirect, natural light. Most of the furniture is minimal, modern style.
Although there are sleeping accommodations for four, it is really best for two adults (and two children).
With an architect/artist owner, it is a work in progress. Please do not expect hotel-level finish, but instead an interesting dialogue between materials, spaces, furnishings.
**This is a Non-Smoking unit**
Check in is at 4PM and check out is 11AM. I try to accommodate all individual arrival and departure circumstances

About Frid Branham
As mentioned in the rental description, I am an artist and architect. I am currently self-employed and most of the projects I do are residential or small businesses, although I have a lot of experience working on institutional/medical projects. I was born in Ibiza, Spain to American parents and moved back to the States when I was 11. My parents are also creatives, working in architecture, art and fashion. After receiving a 4-year degree in History from Boston University, I decided to pursue architecture and attended my parents alma matter Pratt Institute. Afterwards, I completed a Masters degree in sculpture at Hunter College.
Frid Branham purchased this Apartment in 2007
Why Frid Branham chose South Slope
I love the friendly, safe neighborhood. It is slightly divided off from South Slope/Park Slope, creating an enclave of its own. There are plenty of shops, bars, restaurants to try; many of different regions of the world. The school system is very good and my kids can safely walk around the neighborhood unattended by an adult.
What makes this Apartment unique
I live in the building, and make myself available to any and all questions, needs and concerns.

Clean and comfortable apartment in great neighborhood - excellent value!
My husband and I stayed here for six nights in April for one of our regular visits to New York. We really enjoyed the flat - it is clean and comfortable, with a well-equipped kitchen. I especially appreciated the plentiful natural light and the decor, which is spare but well done, with quality furnishings. (I like old buildings, so I found the retention of original features charming.) The immediate neighborhood has everything you might need - plenty of restaurants, corner stores, groceries - and it is a great spot from which to explore other Brooklyn neighborhoods on foot. Frid responded quickly to all my inquiries while we were arranging the rental and made it clear she was available for anything we might need during our stay. We will definitely return.

Great stay in South Slope
Our family of 4 (2 adults & 2 kids 11 & 9) came to visit NYC for a 8 days. We enjoyed Frid's place. It was clean, and perfectly suited for our stay. I enjoyed how well equipped the kitchen was- a spacious refrigerator/freezer, good storage space, spices & condiments, cool vintage glasses and lots of cooking tools- even an avocado saver- my favorite. The morning light from the back windows is lovely. I found myself taking many photos of us eating at that table. The cabinets and closets have storage and shelve space for luggage and hanging clothes. Frid thoughtfully has provided some great essentials- shopping bags, umbrella, games/toys. This apartment reminded us of an apartment we stayed at in France, simple and well thought out. Though we didn't meet Frid in person, she was super responsive to any messages or questions we had. The neighborhood itself is great- walking distance to many coffee, shops, Prospect Park & zoo, and many restaurants. Right on the corner across the street is a little market with most essentials you could need. Nearest subway stop is about a 15 minute walk. I felt safe the entire stay walking around the neighborhood, and walking home from the subway after dark with my 2 kids. Thank you Frid! We look forward to returning to NY and staying at your place again!
If you have to choose between a hotel or Frid's apt, hands down I would say the apartment. Frid was very helpful and friendly. She accommodated us with our late flight and was quick to respond to my messages. She even checked on us after a couple of days because she hadn't heard from us. I would definitely book her place again.
Comfortable, Clean, and Well equipped
My husband and I spent 5 days here in December while visiting our grandchildren. It was the perfect place for us. Very clean, pleasantly furnished, well equipped - we felt like we could have been in a European apartment. The apartment is conveniently sited near shops, transportation - and we had no problem finding parking. Fred is a lovely and very responsive host - and we really appreciate her flexibility with a late check out! We will definitely stay here again when we have an extended stay in Brooklyn.
Nice little spot
We spent a long weekend in New York to visit our daughter for her birthday and stayed at Frid’s place. It was comfortable for 3 although we did not spend much time in the apartment. It is well equipped with everything you need to cook your own meals although no microwave to heat things. We have spent some time in the area so we knew what to expect in a 100 year old Brooklyn rowhouse. As the write up says this is not the same “fit and finish” as a modern hotel room but that is actually part of the appeal. It’s a little bit of a walk to the subway but if you have spent any time in NYC you will know that there is always walking involved. We didn’t eat in the area but know from previous visits that there are lots of good restaurants in the area. Parking was good (for NYC). Frid was welcoming and responsive to our requests. Would stay here again and recommend it to others who need a comfortable spot in an interesting neighbourhood close to the city. for a reasonable price.
I love this place!
I had a wonderful one-week stay in this lovely flat. Frid is wonderful, and the neighborhood is great. It reminded me of my days living in Brooklyn. Definitely not a hotel experience, but a wonderful place to spend time. I look forward to staying here again next time I visit New York!
South Slope/Greenwood Heights is directly adjacent to Park Slope and in very easy walking distance to Prospect Park and Historic Greenwood Cemetery. Within the immediate area there are a large number of restaurant, bars and cafes from which to choose, including: Lot2, Southside Coffee, Toby's, Giuseppina's, Seawich, Corzo, Roots, Sidecar Restaurant, and the list is endless of good choices. BAM, Brooklyn Museum and Brooklyn Botanic Gardens, Barclay Center and Brooklyn Heights Promenade are just short subway or bus rides away.
