This is a great duplex in the heart of Brooklyn! The bedroom is huge w/ a queen sized bed,32' flat screen w/ Apple TV and Internet. Also,the apt. has a big kitchen & living room w/ a balcony facing the now famous Barclays Center. The amenities are endless!
The size for New York is great as well as just being so close to 4 different neighborhoods in Brooklyn is amazing. Great lighting also w/ our great balcony. Enjoy!
Great restaurants & bars in the area. Basically anything you need is a few steps away.
I'm am right across the street from the 2,3,4,5,6,R,N,D Trains located conveniently in front of the Barclays Center
Great location near Barclays, Park Slope's cute shops and conveniently located Atlantic terminal so easy to get into the city fast. The apartment has a cool set up with a and bedroom has comfy memory foam bed. Alex and his roommate were both great to chat to in passing.
My cousin and I were not only put up in a beautiful 2 story apartment in the heart of Brooklyn, but Alex actually took time out of his daily life to bring us around the city and show us all the hotpots, whilst drinking beer along the way in local pubs ;)
fantastic time, fantastic host....a must must do for anyone going to Brooklyn.
Went up to Brooklyn for a concert at the Barclays. Alex's apartment was in an awesome location! Alex was very friendly and an awesome host! Stay two days and would definitely use his place again!
Alex was solid. Very succinct, and punctual in his communication. The room was spacious, and comfortable. Very nice central location. Alex was also helpful in suggesting some neighborhood events, as well as places to eat. I would definitely consider staying with Alex again in Brooklyn.
My girlfriend & I came in for a weekend and stayed in Alex's room. The location is amazing, convenient to every train, near many restaurants & bars. Alex even had a list of good restaurants for us when we got there. We never saw him in person, but he texted or called us to answer any questions & make sure we arrived from the airport ok. We will definitely try to use Alex whenever we get back to the city. Also, if you aren't familiar with the subway, the Embark NY app proved extremely helpful for us.
My girlfriend and I live in Brooklyn but needed a sublet for a couple of weeks. Alex's room is definitely in the thick of things... an easy walk to the largest transit hub in Brooklyn and on the edge of friendly and safe Park Slope. So if you plan to be out and about, this might be the spot for you! The room and common spaces were clean and bright, Alex is polite and nice and considerate, and as attentive as you want, or don't want.
The room is at the front of the building and Flatbush Ave is rightthere; so the round-the-clock traffic noise can be a little intense if you are a light sleeper, but I adapted after a couple of days. Most shows and events at the new Barclays arena (also very close) are done around midnight... so there's frequently a strong night life in the surrounding neighborhood as the crowds disperse to bars and restaurants.
If you're visiting NYC, traveling light, and looking for an alternative to a hotel, Alex's place is a good choice at a fair price.
Alex is a very accommodating host and provided us with a list of nice restaurants to visit during our stay. The balcony is pleasant and looks out over the new stadium and the main Brooklyn street. I would recommend this apartment.
Alex's apartment is just as cool as he is. His room is very spacious and is in a great location that's close to plenty of cool cafes, bars and restaurants. He's a very friendly, fun guy who showed us around the area and took us out for chicken and waffles the next morning! We only spent one night there, but it was enough to know that we want to go back and hang out with Alex again-looking forward to seeing him in London!
Very good. The room is really comfortable, and is just a few steps away from Barclays Center. I'd definetly choose this room to stay if I had to travel again to NYC.
