About Kristin Brown

We are creative, entrepreneurial, serial-renovator types who are happy and proud to call NYC our home for more than half of our lives. We live for great design and ease of living, and so have designed our place as such — to be easy, convenient, relaxing, and as country-like as possible in a city of eight million people.

Why Kristin Brown chose East Village

The East Village is one of the last places in NYC that, while it is certainly different than it was 20 years ago, still retains the wonderful charm and individuality that many 'real neighborhoods' have lost through new building in the city in recent years.

What makes this apartment unique

Our place is well thought out and you feel it immediately. Because we designed it ourselves, our place has perks like higher sinks and surround sound that includes the bathroom so you can soak in the tub to classical music or hear what's happening during a movie if you get up and run to the kitchen. Everything here is here for a good reason and we feel it makes life so much more fun and easy.

It is also highly unusual to have not only a washer/dryer and dishwasher but a virtual farm on the roof! The satisfaction of growing and eating your own vegetables is wonderful and makes our place truly unique.

What makes our place so unique is that we have custom designed it for exactly the life we like to enjoy in NYC. We think you will agree! The East Village has a wonderful, creative vibe and our place fits right in. The space is super functional- every inch is used well and all serves to make your day easier and more comfortable- from the waist-high bathroom sink, to the working height island in the center of the kitchen. Finally the rooftop is a precious respite in NYC. Less than 1% of NYC apartments in NYC can boast a vegetable garden, and that is how we find the balance of life in the city, along with nature! : )

Great location in the East Village.

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is 3 floors up but the advantage is the roof top access.

There is plenty of space inside with a comfortable Mason bed.

The kitchen is well equiped and Kirsten kindly offers access to her pantry items .

The washing machine and dryer are excellent and it was invaluable to have.

The area is full of great restaurants and all the shops you need, the subway directly across the road makes travel to any location very easy.

Kirsten was very easy to deal with provided local info needed.

great location with lots of space to unwind

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Kristin's apartment. Our daughter was getting married at a nearby community garden so we were able to walk there easily to help prepare for the big event. The apartment is super clean, well laid out and comfortable. Kristin was very welcoming when we arrived and very quick to answer a few questions by text during our stay. We enjoyed being able to have a coffee or late night drink on the rooftop patio. A truly lovely spot that we would book again!

Absolutely magical apartment in NY!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely adored our stay in this apartment! Kristin was the most amazing host, replying to all of our messages and even leaving a handy guide to the apartment and area to make sure our stay went smoothly! The apartment itself is light, airy, clean and has a wonderful homely feel about it. And we have no words for the roof - a little oasis in the heart of NY. Can't speak highly enough about our stay, we would come back again in a heartbeat!

We had the most wonderful 7 days staying at kristens property, the apartment location was perfect,

  • 5 of 5

Kristens apartment was absolutely perfect for us, we stayed there for 7 days, great location, very comfotable and fully equipped for all your needs. The roof garden was our own little oasis, great space with wonderful produce grown on the rooftop.

It made our first week in New York an absolute joy, we have loved the people and the city, thank you Kristen for sharing your apartment with us, I will be highly recommending it to everyone I know heading up this way.

Lovely weekend in the East Village

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying in this beautiful, spotless, well-appointed apartment. The roof top garden is an oasis with fragrant herbs and flowers. The pictures don't do it justice! Even though our flight got in 4 hours late, Kristin had the apartment all ready for us -air conditioning blasting away against the 95 degree heat with 100 % humidity, but we quickly cooled off in the "spa like" shower. We then walked around the corner for the best cold borscht I have ever tasted at Veselkas - a fabulous Ukrainian restaurant open 24 hours! We had a fascinating time exploring the East Village...the Mast bookstore...the old CBGB's site, Search and Destroy ...too fun!

We will definitely be back!
