This great apartment in a historic building is on a gorgeous, brownstone lined street. It's minutes from every subway line you could want and the trains of Atlantic Terminal, gets great light, and has a comfy couch in living room for more space.

The Space

I love my one bedroom! It's on the third floor of a 8 unit brick building in a great neighborhood in Brooklyn -- Boerum Hill, and is near tons of great shops, bars, and brunch places, such as Ganso and Building on Bond. It's also a 10 minute walk from Cobble Hill, a 15 minute walk from Park Slope, and on literally every subway line you could want to get into Manhattan in 5-10 minutes. It also has high ceilings, big windows, and old fashioned touches like a big kitchen sink and hardwood floors. Its 3 minutes from the A/C, 4 minutes from the 2/3/4/5, 5 minutes from the B/Q/R and 6 minutes from Atlantic Terminal and the D/N/R.

Guest Access

You will have access to the whole apartment, as I will not be there. The bed in the bedroom, which is a queen, sleeps two. There's also a queen sized air mattress.

  • Good location on a quiet block, but next to the conveniences of the Atlantic Terminal area, and an easy walk to many surrounding neighborhoods. The pictures accurately portray the space -- although high ceilings make it feel airy and more spacious than it actually is. If using the airbed it fits comfortably in the middle of the living room. Kitchen is functional and includes a small eating space. The host is responsive but is pretty hands-off since she's traveling on business. She gives you plenty of points of contact in case something goes wrong, but we never had to use them.

  • Amazing little apartment in the gorgeous neighborhood of Boerum Hill. The apartment is very close to the subway stations (of various lines, which was very convenient). I was so pleased with the whole experience, and next time I am in New York City, I will definitely want to stay in this exact location!

  • Alana was very kind and helpful, she answered all my questions with efficiency and quickly. It was perfect for me who had a first experience on Airbnb.
    I would definitely recommanded Alana's apartment which is calm, clean and convenient! Very easy to reach Manhattan by train. We were three friends and the apartment was great for these few days!

  • Alana was out of town during our visit, but has prepared everything to make our stay as comfortable as possible. The handover of keys from her friendly neighbor was easy; the apartment itself was very clean, quiet, had great décor and is situated in a fab location, close to numerous transportation options! It is a great place to stay in Brooklyn, just around the corner from bustling Atlantic Ave and close to Atlantic Terminal and Barclays Center. We didn’t meet Alana in person, but we strongly recommend booking her place and exploring the adjoining Brooklyn neighborhoods which have some much to offer!

  • Alana's place was the perfect accommodation for us, in an amazing location. It was clean and it had the amenities we needed for a 3 day stay. She addressed all our requests immediately and proved to be an excellent host. We can recommend Alana and her home with total confidence.
