Open artist loft close to Manhattan

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Moore St, Brooklyn, NY 11206, United States

Welcome to my home and studio! This is not a second property that I rent out like a hotel. It's a former shoe factory, and the loft has lots of light, a totally open floor plan, big windows, exposed brick, and a movie projector.

Your host, Jacob

Welcome to my home and studio! This is not a second property that I rent out like a hotel. It's a former shoe factory, and the loft has lots of light, a totally open floor plan, big windows, exposed brick, and a movie projector.

The Space

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).

Guest Access

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

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.

Getting around

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.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Very nice flat and really close to the subway, just one minute by foot. The flat looks just like the pics, very spacious and a lot of light. The subway brings you in no time to Manhattan. Jacob is very helpfull. The wifi didn't work the moment we arrived but Jacob passed by the same day to fix it and it worked very fast from that moment. We would book this flat again if we ever come back to New York. Thank you Jacob!

  • We enjoyed our stay in Jacob's loft. It was a new experience to live in one room and we felt immediately at home. It was clean and we had everything we needed.
    We were glad to have a grocery store and some restaurants in the neighborhood.
    The nearby subway station made it easy to get downtown Manhattan.

  • We stayed at Jacob's a week and he was a wonderful host. Really helpful with everything and made us feel like home from the beginning. The flat is everything it says in description and the location is great.

  • Wat een geweldige plek. Voor 1 week voelde het echt als thuis in the big apple. De ruimte is geweldig. Metro om de hoek en je zit binnen 15 minuten in Manhattan. Met Roberta's place (heerlijk italiaans eten, lekkere wijn en betaalbaar biertjes drinken in leuke tuin) aan het einde van de straat. Een wijk die over 2-3 jaar waarschijnlijk niet meer te betalen is. Een absolute aanrader met wel 1 minpuntje: geen gordijnen, maar alles is oplosbaar. Jacob is erg gastvrij en behulpzaam.

  • Although Jacob was not in town, he and his girlfriend did their very best to make us feel comfortable. They were very flexible in meeting us so we could receive the keys. The artist loft was spot on for us, especially because of the very convenient designer desk. iMac & Apple Led Display Cinema included :)

  • I had an incredible time at Jacob's place. The apartment is in a great location of Brooklyn, close to the subway, cafés, a grocery store, and of course, Roberta's pizzeria. The space itself is bright and beautiful. Jacob was a great communicator before I arrived and throughout my stay, and kept perfect instructions on how everything worked, as well as leaving recommendations for what to do in the area. I would definitely recommend Jacob, and would stay here again!

  • Jacob was a courteous host. He was a good communicator. The place itself looked as advertised - it was large and neat. We used the projector once - it was nice. The bed was comfortable, and my brother reported the futon was tolerable. The neighborhood was okay - a little farther from Manhattan and the heart of Williamsburg than I expected. Otherwise, it was a good place to stay, although I'll likely try to find a place closer to or in Manhattan next time.

  • We came for one week and stayed for two; I think that sums it up. Jacob was a fantastic host. He was easy to get in touch with, super helpful, and very accommodating. The apartment was comfortable, clean and bright, exactly as presented in the description. The neighborhood was a nice change from the bustle of Manhattan, but still convenient. Plenty of good food in the neighborhood, so there was really no need to leave. For us, it was perfect. We''ll definitely stay again.

  • We spent a week in Brooklyn and had a great time. We rented bikes and biked all over Brooklyn, Manhattan and even New Jersey. Quite a challenging experience biking in NY, but certainly wortwhile. The loft of Jakob is spacious, full of light and very pleasantly cool even on hot summerdays without airco ! We just loved, it. Roberta's acroos the road is fantastic, and the convenience stores around the corner provide good quality (and fresh) food and beverages. We'd certainly do it it again
