The space

This wonderful space accommodates two people (couple) easily. It is a sunny and huge one bedroom apartment (730 sq ft) with amazing views of the Brooklyn and Manhattan skyline in a new high rise doorman apartment building extremely close to all subway lines. The apartment is at the intersection of Downtown Brooklyn and Boerum Hill and mere steps from Cobble Hill, Park Slope, Fort Greene, DUMBO, Brooklyn Heights and the Barclays Center. Less than 10 minutes to downtown Manhattan via multiple subway lines.
The apartment has hardwood floors, stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, and central air conditioning. The bed is a comfortable queen size. The spacious kitchen is fully equipped and has an open living/dining area with a farmhouse dining table that easily sits 6-8 people. The apartment is accented with fresh flowers and plants keeping it cheerful and relaxing.

The Boerum Hill/Brooklyn Heights/Downtown Brooklyn neighborhoods are a lovely mesh of bustling shops, popular restaurants and bars and quiet tree lined streets with beautiful brownstone townhouses. You can jump on one of a dozen different subway lines to any place in NYC, including Times Square, the theater district, Brooklyn Bridge, Midtown, Central Park, 5th Avenue and SoHo shopping districts, World Trade Center and JFK, La Guardia and Newark airports.

There is a gourmet grocery store on our block that has everything you could need during your stay. Also on our block: a coffee shop/cafe, dry cleaners, and a hot yoga studio. Within a one block radius: Macy's, Century 21 Department Store, Alamo Drafthouse movie theater, Trader Joe's, Dekalb Market gourmet food court with outposts from famous NY restaurants, and Target.

This was a wonderful Air BnB. Stayed for a weekend and the location is perfect to get around in Brooklyn or Manhattan. The subway is underneath the building so it makes traveling very easy. The apartment was exactly as described and as it looks in the picture. Lovely home, quiet apartment, great place to come back and relax after exploring NYC.

My husband and I stayed here for two nights; it was perfect for us. The location can't be beat- right above a subway stop, minutes to multiple other MTA lines, and a few minutes walk to all that Court/Smith streets have to offer. The apartment is clean, quiet (and I'm a light sleeper), and has an amazing view. Communication was great and all the necessary details were provided. I highly recommend!!

If you're coming to NYC to explore Brooklyn, this is the perfect spot. Lots of trains nearby, and also easily walkable to Cobble Hill, Boerum Hill, Fort Green and Brooklyn Heights. Very clean and Simon was really easy to communicate with.

We just want to thank Simon and Josh for being excellent, honorable, thoughtful hosts. Our flight from Milan was canceled by the airline 4 hours before departure and we were obliged to cancel our trip which was heartbreaking and very frustrating. Simon and Josh were incredibly understanding and worked with us to find a solution to this sudden and unexpected problem. They are as professional and courteous as you could ever hope to find in hosts, and we would love to stay with them in the future. Highly recommended!

This contemporary apartment is spotless and provides everything you will desire. Located in the most desirable neighborhood of Brooklyn, the building provides 24 secure/doorman service. Subway is literally steps outside the entrance to the building. Close to shopping, parks and movie theater selections and close to most any cuisine that interests you. Simon the host is attentive to inquiries and cares that you are enjoying your stay. This is THE place if you want to feel what a luxury apartment in NY feels like. Building even provides free specialty coffee any time and water stations to refresh you upon your return from excursions out and about. We were impressed all around and have only positive things to express about our stay. The view is just wow as you look out the windows.
