About this listing

Great location, spacious room in two-bedroom apartment. Courtyard access, nice living room, and cheery kitchen. Super close to bars, restaurants, L and J/M/Z subways.

The space

Great location, spacious room in two-bedroom apartment. Courtyard access, nice living room, and cheery kitchen. Super close to bars and restaurants.

Spacious, private room in a ground floor, two-bedroom apartment. It has its own entrance to the main hallway, giving you the option of entering directly to it, or entering through the front door and walking through the living room. The room you're renting has a (non-working) fireplace, two windows, a closet, table and chairs, chest, and comfy, full-size bed. Included are clean sheets and towels, duvet, body wash, shampoo, conditioner, and toothpaste.

I live in the other private room, and will be home during your stay, although I work a bunch and am never home as much as I'd like!

The apartment offers access to a tree-shaded courtyard (which is shared with the three other apartments in the building), a nice living room with tons of art and plants, and cheery kitchen with all the cooking tools you'd need, and a stove and toaster oven, if you'd like to cook! I also have a drip coffee maker and a French press, and have tea and coffee for you. The apartment is nicely decorated throughout, check out the pictures. And when you arrive, don't judge a book by its cover; while the outside of the building is (ahem) "old school" and graffiti-covered, the inside is homey and spacious, with exposed brick and high ceilings. And overall, in my opinion, way nicer and more homey than the new glass and steel behemoths that are popping up all over the area. Please note that because the apartment is so centrally located, and the bedroom you'll be renting is adjacent to the street, you may hear the murmur of folks walking by outside, especially on weekends. If you are especially sensitive to noise when going to sleep, this apartment may not be the best choice for you.

To reach the subway, it's an approx. 6-minute walk to the Lorimer/Metropolitan L or G train, or a 10-minute walk to the Bedford L train. It's an approx. 10-minute walk to the Broadway J/M/Z train.

You're just minutes away from tons of restaurants, bars, stores, and a grocery store on Grand Street, Havermeyer, and Roebeling. I'll leave you with a guide to my local favorites, as well as suggestions if you have a specific hankering. I love to meet travelers and give recommendations! I will also leave you with maps to Brooklyn and Manhattan. Many travelers who stay with me are surprised how much time they end up staying in Williamsburg and other areas of Brooklyn, and not as much time in Manhattan as they expected. Don't be surprised if you find yourself doing the same.

Feel free to contact me with any questions about my place, or the area at large! I love my neighborhood and am happy to share it with cool folks, and want you to make the most of your stay.

Brians place is soooooo cool its like a small vintage museum. Where every single thing in his house has a story, and everything lays in a perfect composition. You gotta see it, to understand what i mean. its awesome. the room is big and confortable and the patio is a classic williamsburg inside patio where you can hang out with other young neighbours and its walking distance from all the best spots! Highly recommend

Brian's place is very unique and offers a great experience of how true New Yorkers live. We didn't see much with Brian, because of our schedules, but the little we saw, he was very nice and helpful. The location is great, right in the middle of the buzz of Williamsburg.

Brian's place is perfectly located in Williamsburg. Close to the L train, the line will become your best friend. Brian's a busy bee so you won't find him at home much, its kinda like being in your own place. Check out Brooklyn (Williamsburg and bushwick) they are worth checking out.

My name is Brian. I'm 31, and I am a partner in a photo studio, prop house, and set-building shop in Williamsburg, BK, about ten minutes from my apartment. We do some really cool stuff. I love living in Brooklyn and am happy to share it with travelers! Life motto: say yes more than no.
