This cozy home is 6 minutes walk from R Train with 30 minutes commute to lower Manhattan and 45 minutes to middle Manhattan. It's one block away from the famous Bay Ridge restaurants street- third avenue-Grotto, Tanoreen and Grand Sichuan House, just name a few. It's also 5 minutes walk away from Century 21. You’ll love my place because of the location, the people, the neighborhood, and the ambiance. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and families.

About Jing Song
I am a CPA working with a Manhattan accounting firm for the past 13 years. I grew up in Mainland China and came to US for my Master degree. I went to Baruch college and obtained my MS in both accounting and taxation. I met my husband here and we got married in 2006 and moved to this house in 2008. We also speak Mandarin and Cantonese as our native language. My husband and I both enjoyed good food, cooking and shopping. That's why after hearing his uncle's advice we decided to settle down in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn.
Jing Song purchased this House in 2008
Why Jing Song chose Fort Hamilton
We love this house for its prime location to all! The R train is within walking distance. Commute to lower Manhattan usually takes 30 minutes and Mid Manhattan 45 minutes. And if you'd like to venture to Staten Island, New Jersey, the Verazano Bridge is also nearby. Please note that there is no parking onsite but street parking or paid garage parking are both available. This is the second floor of a two family house. The total floor space is around 800 sqf. You have full access to the whole second floor apartment, including two bedrooms, sitting room, kitchen with microwave, refrigerator and essential cooking utensils and dishware, bathroom and the office room. There is wifi access and wireless TV for your entertainment. There is the famous Shore Road Park 6-7 blocks away from our house, you'd fall in love with the sunset view and taking a jog along the shore will be a guaranteed memorable experience. We love the location so much that we decided to invest in another property in this neighborhood. As we enjoy being a host, we'd like to put up our house with HomeAway and share that wonderful living experience with you!

What can I say.. it was perfect. So much better, than any hotel and I travel a lot.
The hosts were courteous, accommodating, and the place was spotless. The neighborhood was quiet and no issue at all parking. Just around the block was everything you would need: eateries, a gym, supermarket, and an inexpensive parking lot ( that I only used twice in 10 days). I will definitely be back. In short, my experience here was a 10 out of 10.
Very lovely place to stay at!!
So many paces to eat around the neighborhood and very close to many shops!
Great apartment, well located
Clean, quiet, roomy apartment on second floor of two family house. Great beds/bedrooms, kitchen, bathroom and tv. Well stocked apartment, very well located. Great AC system. We would use again!
So much better than i expected.
The neighborhood is very quiet and feels safe. The home has every thing that you could want. The beds are nice and comfortable. Having AC was a life saver coming from Alaska I was not prepared for 80 degree weather. There are great shops located near the rental and the R train stops very close and makes for a convenient commute any where you need to go.
Very comfortable and quiet!
Our week we had great weather and everyday we were out and about. The subway station was really close and made traveling to Manhattan easy. The time we spent in Brooklyn we were very close to great food and desserts, a really nice grocery store was in close walking distance. This particular property worked very well for us, we were able to "play" all day and still get a good night's safe and quiet sleep!
cultural trip in New York city
Nice and cosy apartment. The host provide everything we need and respond at the query really fast. We arrived late and found everything for our first breakfast. We like the IKEA decoration. All accessories were available like in the hotel. The apartment is very well situate near metro and convenient store. the area is really peaceful and secure (even when we arrive late). We recommend the Turkish vegetable store ``Garden hill``, their service was very good and helpful and they are open 24 hours.
