About this listing


The space

Welcome... to my retro pad in world-famous Williamsburg, Brooklyn! Here's what I have in store for you and all your lodging needs...

One clean, large, quiet, private bedroom... high ceilings, hardwood floor, 2 large windows... lots of natural light from southern exposure (view of nice, old church... see pics). Room is furnished with king-sized bed, chair, dresser, old kitchen compact unit (also known as a Hoosier... has a pull-out counter-top), bar for hanging clothes. Fresh, clean towels and linens are provided. Air conditioning and heat are included.

The loft is unique, spacious, and comfortable... 1000 sq. ft. with 2 bedrooms. It's kept clean and uncluttered... the decor is vintage... mostly 50's and 60's with the center-piece being a swanky bar.

The building is safe and clean with an elevator and security cameras... and has an enormous roof-deck with incredible views of most of Manhattan (I have folding lounge chairs for all your roof excursions). There's laundry in the building (plus a 24 hour laundromat a block away). There's a gym in the basement (membership required... day passes available at $10/day)

Also... for your edification... the building is an old converted industrial building with finished lofts. Word on the street tells me the following:
1893... it was The I.S. Remson Manufacturing Company... "the largest carriage, harness, and horse goods emporium in the world" (there's just no good reason they would ever lie about a thing like that)
1908... The I.S. Remson Manufacturing Company (still into carriages, harness, horse goods)... also got into the car game... they were the Brooklyn dealership for a make called the Locomobile... the most expensive car in America at the time... they also had a garage/showroom over on Bedford.
1921... it was the Interstate Corrugated Box Company
1931... it was the Ainslie Knitting Machine Company

Location... location... location! The loft is a block and a half from the Grand St. stop on the "L" train... also close to the 3rd stop (Graham Ave.) which is just a few steps further away...either way the subway will get you to the East Village or Union Square in 10-15 minutes. Street parking is relatively easy.
The neighborhood is safe, friendly, and lively with lots of restaurants, bars, cafes, coffee shops, retail shops, and music venues.

Pete's place -- and Pete - are exactly as advertised. All of the previous reviews are spot on and mostly I want to just say "ditto". Pete's place is convenient, clean, comfortable, and centrally located in Brooklyn. Pete is a gracious host. For this stay we didn't need a lot of information about Brooklyn, but Pete has lots of suggestions if you are new to the area or just want to try some new places.

Pete's spot was perfect for my housing hunt. His apartment had everything you'd need and was centrally located in Williamsburg, a 2 minute walk to the L. The room itself was spacious with a comfortable king sized bed and plenty of storage if you need it. Pete was gracious and gave me tips for my hunt and about Brooklyn and Manhattan in general. Thanks, Pete!

Pete was an easy, friendly and helpful host. His place is located perfectly in a fun neighbourhood, and close to the L subway going right into lower Manhattan.

It was a really lovely place you want to live in for vacation, great location, very close to public transportations, very easy to uber to east village as well. Williamsburg is few subway stops away. Pete is the coolest host I had. Very pleasure.

Response from Pete:
Qiao was absolutely lovely... so glad I could host her. I just have to clarify one part of her review, though. My place is most definitely in Williamsburg. By a "few subway stops away" she's referring to the Bedford Ave. part of Williamsburg which is 2 or 3 stops depending on which station you use. Regards to all!

Great place located about 5 minutes from the L train. His place has a retro vibe but it's clean and organized. Depending on how forgetful his prior guests are, he may have some toiletries for your use. There are a few house rules but they're all common sense and for everyone's safety. Talk to Pete about N.Y., he's grown up in the area and has lots to share. I'll definitely book this place again when I come back.

Unit is on a main street that is well lighted and safe. Access to the building can be achieved from two locations, both of which appear safe. Once guest learns of the system and the route, guest feels that arriving late at night does not present a safety risk. Generally, I was pleased and woud book again if not focused on something in Manhatten.

I'm from New York. I like things and stuff.... usually more than slightly aged. I'm in social media management... I'm creative... I like being on stage, but I don't have to be. You should totally stay at my place... it'll make you feel good. And I'll help you find things. Ask me anything else you'd like to know.
