Great getaway in Greenpoint
I loved this apartment! Manhattan Ave in Greenpoint is a slice of old school New York and the apartment is surrounded with great restaurants (Scalino GP and Calexico to name only two) and stores and very importantly, subway access. The G stop is around the corner and with two very quick transfers you can be on the E or 7 and into Manhattan. The apartment itself is so spacious with a long layout. I would not recommend this apartment to light sleepers, however, the bedroom faces the street and you hear EVERYTHING especially on a lively Friday or Saturday night. Ear plugs are a must and when I stay in NYC I always bring a pair just in case. One could sleep on the couch in the living room which is far enough within the building to be very quiet and peaceful. Even the day bed (where our 8 year old slept), which was in a "half room" you must walk through to get to the living room, was quieter than the main bedroom next to the windows. All in all, it was a lovely place to stay, lots of natural light in the bedroom, cozy in the living room, great access to cable/Hulu on a big, flat screen TV, and a well equipped kitchen. I loved the little things in the apartment too, a pop-up laundry bag was available, extra umbrellas on the coat rack, lots of towels, comfy beds and it was CLEAN! Edyta, the apartment manager, was always available by text for quick communications and the check in with her was very smooth. This place is also very close to McCarren Park and we walked our doggies there every day. Overall, the place was great, the neighborhood safe and it was surprisingly easy to get to by car and find parking on the side streets. Great find!
Un très bon lieu de villégiature pour explorer New York
Il s'agit d'un appartement assez grand (la description est parfaitement conforme) au premier étage d'un petit immeuble dans une rue commerçante mais calme dans le quartier Greenpoint de Brooklyn (juste à côté de la station de métro Nassau Avenue). On se trouve à environ 30 minutes de tous les grands sites de New York.
Very responsive owner/manager. Dog perfect!
We will stay here again!!
This light-filled apartment has a welcome number of windows for its long narrow footprint. Perfect for people traveling w a dog - steps from McCarren park.
Our only quibble/surprise was arriving on a warm day on June 1 to no air conditioning. The owner directed us to the fine print in the listing “seasonal air conditioning” and that they typically do not install until June 15. However they got the units in by the next day, which I greatly appreciated! I would recommend anyone renting between May 1 - and June 15 look at weather forecast and negotiate up front accordingly. Or in early fall depending on when they typically take them out. As this apartment bedroom looks out onto a noisy section of Manhattan Ave the AC is helpful even just on fan to permit closed windows and white noise.
Excellent kitchen! We would have preferred a microwave to the toaster oven but it was otherwise well appointed. I am grateful for small supplies of basics (oils salt tea etc). Ample linens!
Owners stock enough paper and plastic and soap products for the stay - thank you!!
Pros and Cons
Stayed in early October and had both a positive and negative experience. The property owner is responsive and prompt when getting us into the apartment - check in went smoothly. The rental is spacious (for NY), clean, and felt safe. It's located in a cute, hip area that has several restaurants, shops, markets nearby. Take note from the description though - "on a busy street" - this means noisy! The A/C units were taken out of the windows before we arrived, but we had warm, humid weather during our stay so it was hot in the apartment. We had to sleep with the windows open and it was so loud. We hardly got any sleep :( The ceiling fans didn't go very high either. It is close to a subway station and might be 1 stop to Manhattan, but it is several stops and train changes to get to the tourist destinations. Also take note, this is up one flight of stairs - not for anyone with bodily aches or injuries! The place was stocked with plenty of bedding, towels and toiletries. Overall, the stay was was just okay. I'd recommend to anyone that is traveling to NYC to see and do the typical sightseeing - spend the extra money and stay in Manhattan. If most of your spots are in Brooklyn, then this would be a good option for you.
Professional service; Beautiful large space; Super clean!
Love, love, loved staying here! Edyta was prompt and helpful when checking in. Info in the apartment was helpful. The place feels super safe and secure and is in a lively area with great food and shops right out the door. Everything in the apartment was clean and the decor was so nice. Super spaces for privacy, if someone wants to sleep in late while the other(s) are up in the main living area. The subway is just two blocks away to get into Manhattan. The Williamsburg area is an easy walk. We booked a stay to visit family who lives a 15-20 minute walk away in Greenpoint and I regularly walked in the area late-ish at night feeling safe. I will return to this apartment in a heartbeat! You won't go wrong booking this place. It is great to come back to this cute neighborhood after a busy day in the big city!
Only suggestions: the street noise is loud at all hours, so bring earplugs. Suggestion to host: although the bed looks lovely against the window, it might be less noisy if it is moved against an adjoining wall. Also,there is a toaster oven and full stove/oven in the apartment, but a a microwave would have been nice to heat up our delicious left overs! Thank you Edyta!
