Beautiful house in a great neighborhood
We loved our stay in this gorgeous, third floor brownstone. It’s a half-block walk from the 5th St entrance to Prospect Park and a 5 minute walk to the subway. Nicely kept walk-up with lovely hardwood floors and original wood trim. The owner, Athena was very responsive and accommodating. Will definitely stay here again if we return to the area.
Unique home in convenient location
A comfortable apt. Very near the Park and amenities, easy access and not too much trouble in finding parking.
We loved our visit to Athena's home. The location was unbeatable. Close to the park and 7th Ave. Thank you!! We hope to return soon.
Park Slope Getaway
My wife and I were in the city for a long weekend with her sister and her daughter. The apartment is a third floor walk up in a charmingly historic brownstone. The home has not been cut up into condos but retains its original configuration allowing you the sense of being a guest in large family home. The woodwork, radiators and fireplaces have been restored to their original glory. It has a spacious living room, two bedrooms, small but very serviceable kitchen with gas range, oven and full size fridge. The skylight in the bathroom gives it an airy feel. The house is situated on a very quite street just steps away from Prospect Park and within easy walking distance to the Brooklyn botanical gardens. Several restaurants are within 2 or 3 blocks. We will definitely be coming back to this gem!
Park Slope Gem!
This is a beautiful brownstone building...classic New York elegance. The apartment is cozy and comfortable and the neighborhood is SO peaceful. It was quieter at night than at our home in the suburbs of Seattle!
A short walk to the subway, convenient into Manhattan.
Athena was a wonderful host - she texted us several times to make sure everything was perfect with our stay.
We hope to return again soon.
A great location in Park Slope, just 1/2 block from Prospect Park.
Everything we needed was in the apartment and host was helpful and attentive.
"Park Slope features historic buildings, top-rated restaurants, bars, and shops, as well as proximity to Prospect Park, the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM), the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, the Brooklyn Museum, the Brooklyn Conservatory of Music, and the Central Library as well as the Park Slope branch of the Brooklyn Public Library system. The neighborhood had a population of about 62,200 ...Park Slope is considered one of New York City's most desirable neighborhoods. In 2010, it was RANKED NUMBER 1 in New York by New York Magazine, citing its quality public schools, DINING, NIGHTLIFE, SHOPPING, access to PUBLIC TRANSIT, GREEN SPACE, SAFETY and CREATIVE CAPITOL, among other aspects. It was named one of the "Greatest Neighborhoods in America" by the American Planning Association in 2007, 'for its architectural and historical features and its diverse mix of residents and businesses, all of which are supported and preserved by its active and involved citizenry.' In December 2006, Natural Home magazine named Park Slope one of AMERICA'S TEN BEST NEIGHBORHOODS based on criteria including parks, green spaces and neighborhood gathering spaces; farmers' markets and community gardens; public transportation and locally owned businesses; and environmental and social policy."
