About Jason

This limestone home has been carefully taken care of since it was built in 1910. The neighborhood of Stuyvesant Heights is home to many families including my own. We enjoy the neighborhood feel, the magnificent New York architecture, the independent coffee shops and trendy restaurants. The A Train is less than 100 ft. from the apartment and your trip into the city will take approximately 25 minutes. Clearly, Brooklyn itself is a destination and you will be right in the center if you choose to stay at the Reading Room Suite.

We look forward to having you enjoy the neighborhood as many, many travelers from around the world do every day! Have breakfast in the Reading Room Suite or in one of the many neighborhood eateries before setting out on your day to explore all that New York has to offer.

Warmest regards, Jason

Jason purchased this apartment in 2007

Perfect Place!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect home away from home! Very clean and spacious. Jason was right there to great us when we arrived. He answered all of our questions, and gave us some great options for sight seeing and eating. The directions from the airport were perfect, so easy. We were 4 adults travelling, had lots of room, and felt very safe in the area. The street is beautiful, all lined with trees and floral. Great location in proximity to sight seeing locations. Transit was so close!

Thank you Jason!

Despite all the other fantastic reviews I was still a little worried that given how reasonably priced this apartment was that I might have made a mistake booking it. I need not have worried at all! There were two adults and two 16 year olds in our party. There was plenty room for us all to spread out in the apartment and it had everything we could possibly need for our 4 night stay. Getting in and out of Manhattan on the subway was extremely easy - we bought 7 day passes and after a day sightseeing would head back to Brooklyn for a couple of hours rest after heading back in for the evening. At no time at all did we feel unsafe or even uncomfortable in the area. Jason was a lovely host and we are most grateful to him for helping make our first trip to New York so enjoyable.

Location couldn’t be more convenient to the MTA!

  • 5 of 5

Can’t say enough about the convenience and cleanliness of this property! A short walk to the end of the block and you’re practically on the A train headed to where you want to go! Jason and his neighbor, Sylvia, are SUPER nice, friendly, and helpful. He provides just about anything you would need for a very pleasant experience. Although, I had taken my own toiletries, I was amazed at how well stocked the bathroom was with everything...shower gel, shampoo, conditioner,(including a blow dryer). The kitchen area was also very well stocked. Was there for a long weekend with my teen niece and nephew and not once did I feel uncomfortable or afraid! I’m an early riser, so was not bothered by early morning footsteps and noises from upstairs. If you like to sleep in, you’d probably want to keep in mind that the apartment is on the basement level. I will stay here again if ever back in New York! Thanks Jason for helping us have a great weekend! 😍?

My family and I stayed for six nights in the Reading Room Suite. We could not have been happier with the apartment. There were 5 of us total and there was more than enough room for everyone. It was super comfortable, very clean and well taken care of and Jason was the best host we could possible have hoped for!!! He was there to greet us when we arrived and explained how everything worked, and also provided valuable information, like how to get to the nearest subway station, grocery store, and restaurants. He called us DURING our visit to see if we needed anything. We had a pretty bad snow fall one of the days we were there and he called to make sure we were ok. On our last night, he graciously offered to buy us dinner, but since we had already eaten he surprised us with cake for dessert. It was such a nice thing to do!!! I absolutely plan to go back to NYC for another visit and I will definitely plan to stay at Jason's place again. Thank you Jason, we had a blast.
