About this listing
Spacious and quiet 1 bedroom apt with great views and a homey feel.
This 1 bedroom apartment is very spacious (it would be considered as a 2 bedroom apartment in most places) and has a great homey feel: long brick wall, wooden floors, high ceilings, eat-in kitchen, living room with flat screen TV (Netflix, HBOgo, Hulu Plus and Wifi included in price), dining area with big table for 6 people, lounge area for your morning coffee or evening drink by the windows, overlooking the park. We're located around the corner (literally) from Park Slope's numerous restaurants (Mexican, Vegetarian, Japanese, Chinese, Peruvian, Colombian, French, Portuguese, American, British, Italian etc...) bars and concert venues (The Gate, Union Hall, Littlefield, Bell House, Beauty Bar, Bar Reis, Barbes etc..) and quaint boutiques. Barclays Center is a mere 15 minute walk on 5th Avenue and Whole Foods is 1 block away (on 3rd Avenue and 3rd Street).
Being 35 minutes away from Midtown Manhattan (we are a few blocks away from the F and R trains, 1 stop away from Atlantic-Pacific), it's the perfect compromise for people who are looking for:
- a comfortable and spacious place to stay
- a place close to Manhattan and far enough from all the City noise
- a place with easy access to Long Island
- an off the beaten path experience
The apartment fits 4 people comfortably. 2 people can sleep in the bedroom with a queen size bed and 2 people on the queen size sofabed in the living room separated by curtains across the apartment. There is easy and safe street parking.
Needless to say we provide bed linens and bath and beach towels. Also, you may use every appliance in the kitchen: mixer, toaster, coffee machine (espresso machine or Italian pot), microwave, fridge, oven etc...
Please note that it's a 4th floor walk up and therefore is not suitable for people with limited mobility.
It is a very family-oriented neighborhood with great restaurants and cafés and it's also very safe, even late at night/early morning!
There is free and easy street parking.
Our subway stops are Union Street R train (1 stop away from Atlantic-Pacific) or 4th Avenue/9th Street F train.
From JFK you can either take a taxi, which costs about $45-$50 and is 30-45 min away or the train. For the train option you can take the Airtrain from the airport to Jamaica Station, where you would catch the LIRR train to Atlantic Terminal, which is 20 minutes away. Once you arrive at Atlantic Terminal, you can either walk for 20 min or take the R train (subway) to Union Street (1 stop) then walk for 5 min. This option costs about $17 per person and is about an hour/1h15 travel time. The last option is to take the Airtrain to Howard Beach, then take the A train (subway) towards Manhattan, switch for the F train (subway) at Jay Street/Metrotech toward Coney Island/Stillwell Avenue and get off at 4 Ave/9th Street stop, which is a 5 min walk to our apt. This option is $7.50 per person and about an hour/1h15 travel time. I would take a cab if you're not on a very tight budget... If you do, tell the driver to take the Belt Parkway to North Conduit Ave to Atlantic Avenue. We're located between 4th and 5th Avenue.
Other Things to Note
A list of restaurants/cafés/grocery stores/farmers markets will be at your disposal upon arrival.
Shoes off in the apartment and no-smoking. The rest is just common sense!
