The perfect location for the visiting artist, photographer or creative. At over 1600 square feet, this is one of the largest lofts available in the bustling art-world mecca that is Williamsburg/East Williamsburg/Bushwick.
This listing is for the lofted bedroom. A creative, spacious, open-air loft - filled with art. The perfect retreat for a visiting creative artist or photographer. Your host is a working artist and designer and has kept the space, open, minimal. We are a short 2 minute walk to the Jefferson L train, which will get you to Union Square in Manhattan in 15 minutes. The loft is located in the art filled neighborhood of Bushwick, within walking distance to restaurants (Robertas, Northeast Kingdom) and great bars (Tandem, Heavy Woods, Pearls, The Narrows) along with art galleries and performance spaces.
Full kitchen, wifi, Spotify account, use of space for limited photography. No roof access. Note: we are on the 4th floor and the building is a walk up, so do keep that in mind!
Interaction with Guests
I'm in and out of the space, and let the guests keep to themselves. But I'm always available for questions, tips, information etc. Very chill and friendly.
East Williamsburg / Bushwick over the last few years is being rapidly transformed into the creative neighborhood of New York City - displacing Williamsburg as that area has rapidly gentrified. Bushwick Open Studios has become an important yearly event, and the neighborhood surrounding the loft has a very Berlin feel, with artist studios, galleries, and incredible streetart everywhere.
The L train (Jefferson stop) is a quick 2 minute walk. We also have excellent local car services that can arrive at the loft in usually 5 minutes or less, if you are in a hurry or need to go somewhere not easily reached by subway.
Other Things to Note
Visiting photographers/filmmakers can additionally rent the studio for non-commercial photoshoots at a rate of $75/day for crews of up to 4 people, 6 hour shoots. Want to shoot a video or do something more elaborate? Drop me a line and we'll work something out!
No pets, no smoking, no roof access, no parties or gatherings without approval, no overnight guests. Try to be quiet in the main space before 10am and after 11pm. No cooking after 11pm.
Kurt is a kind and generous host whose artistic environment made staying in his loft a creative experience.
Amazing host. The room is very nice. Live here. Kurt will make you feel like home. :)
I spent a couple of weeks in the apartment and the place and location were perfect. Kurt is a great host and knew of some great music venues as well as some great places to eat and drink. The proximity to the L train makes it easy to get around too.
Simply the BEST! Best Location for experiencing vibrant art scene of Brooklyn and at the same time short subway ride away from Manhattan. Best space to experience NYC, nice and roomy with amazing views of Manhattan skyline. Best host; Kurt took us to most amazing party in the first evening there and was very helpful giving us pointers on best restaurants and art studios. Best place to experience vibrant and artistic NYC while feeling like being part of it!
I threw myself into a new job in NYC and decided to use airbnb week over week to try living in new areas. Kurt's space is by far the most interesting. He also introduced me to the neighborhood and always had suggestions of unique things to see. Amazing view. Great host.
Kurt's loft was spacious and bright. We shot a project there, and with a little set decoration, it looks gorgeous! Kurt was a great host, informative, accommodating, and very, very helpful. It was a wonderful experience. Thanks Kurt. Will be back!
I had a great stay with Kurt, I booked two nights originally and then as the olive was open decided to stay for a week! Kurt was helpful and a great guy. The space is huge beautiful and great for creative thinkers. Cannot recommend highly enough! Next time I am in NYC I know where I will be!
