About this listing
Welcome to my home and studio! Located in an artist neighborhood with good transit to Manhattan and Bedford Ave., the loft has lots of light, a totally open floor plan, big windows, exposed brick, and a movie projector.
These photos were taken when I had just moved in, so it's actually quite a bit more comfortable now. (New photos are coming.)
It is a 900 sq. ft (~85 m sq.) open loft space in a converted factory. There is a giant wall of windows that get indirect light all day, 13 ft. ceilings, and a brick wall. The kitchen is well equipped, there's a dining table to comfortably fit 8, espresso machine, etc. The building has a shared outdoor area and big rooftop that looks out to Manhattan. There's a fold-out futon and queen-size bed so it comfortably sleeps 2 couples; can also provide an air mattress for more people. Stays cool in the summer, quiet neighbors. Projector for giant movies and iPod-stereo hookup (no TV, sorry).
Everything – make yourself at home.
Interaction with Guests
As little as getting the keys when you arrive or as much as having a drink in the neighborhood – up to you.
The neighborhood is great: You won't find it in guidebooks, cool little creative enclave in a safe, diverse, true NYC loft area. Easy access from JFK. The L train is less than two blocks away and goes directly to the city (about 15 minutes). You can also get to the main part of Williamsburg via the same train (about 10 minutes). There's also the JMZ line about 10 minutes by foot. Our neighbors are the incredible pizza and garden at Roberta's, coffee shops, an organic market, a sushi restaurant, a wine shop, and a few other nice little bars.
The L train is less than two blocks away, which takes you to Manhattan in about 10 minutes. The J train is about a 10 minute walk. You can also bike or walk to Williamsburg.
Other Things to Note
- this is for the whole apartment.
- available by the day for photo shoots.
- also willing to trade apartments in another (non-US) city.
Pretty easy, really:
- Treat the apartment as if it were your own. Treat the neighbors as if you had to live with them all year
- Be open-minded about New York and the neighborhood. Diversity is why it's a great city.
- Please don't smoke inside
- Be careful with food/drinks on the couch, and no guests sleeping overnight on it
- Enjoy your stay!
