Interaction with Guests
This room was designed for the lighthearted individuals, who enjoy life and seek something different. Staying here is almost like camping in the sky and not for the too serious. Thus far, all of my guest absolutely loved it and want to come back for more, see my reviews!

This location is the ideal spot to get a rich NYC experience. It's the first stop in Brooklyn on the L train, and within minutes you can be in either the East Village, Union Square, or Meatpacking District. There's also a ferry that'll take you to Manhattan via the East River, just a few minutes by foot from the place. Open-Air Farmer's Market with local produce every Saturday just across the street. A 7min walk to the waterfront "now open" weekend outdoor flea market, featuring a new "Outdoor Smorgasbar", selling local Beer, Wine & Sprits.
Conveniently located near Subways (metro), Buses, Taxi cabs & Boat Ferry (to Manhattan) all in walking distance. My lobby concierge can arrange assistance if a car or limo service is needed, driving you anywhere in NYC (including all airports) at a fair price.
Other Things to Note
There is a cute, "overly friendly" but NOT annoying - French Bulldog that resides within the main area of the apartment (not in the rental space) . He is not a bother at all, on the contrary..Most guest find him a real pleasure!
In my dealings with Airbnb, I found most people are very respectful to me and my home. For this reason, I do not charge a deposit at this time.
Thanks for looking, hope you can join us.
Smoking is permitted outdoors, on the terrace but NOT in the room. Pets and guest, not on the reservation are not allowed. This means, NO unauthorized parties, visitors, commercial shoots and NO pets are allowed. This is simply a really nice, very clean & safe place to sleep and experience Williamsburg NYC.
The Williamsburg Sky Box was the most fabulous Air bnb experience I've had. The room was spotless and very comfortable, the hosts were charming and delightful, and the view from the terrace was spectacular. The location is very convenient, and John made me feel very much at home. I will definitely stay there the next time I am in NY (if it isn't completely booked!) I recommend this place to everyone!
Everything is the best! The hotel is not at the Manhattan but the public transportation is very conveninent. The scenary is very good especially at night. John and his friend are both very nice! They shared their salad and cake with me. I even have a small refrigerator to use!
Staying at johns skybox was worth every dollar. The room was nice and clean and the view was amazing! Both John and Danny were very friendly and always available to give you good advice about Williamsburg. I will definitely book the skybox the next time I'm in town. Thank you so much for your hospitality John :-)
Well, that will probably be just another one good comment on John and his SkyBox... But all those good words said here are just deserved. First, the facts: John's place is astonishing. And even the pictures published don't tell you the truth. The view on NY's Skyline is just a blast, the terrace where "the box" stands (a small but very charming and convenient room, which's large window opens right in front of the Empire State Building, and the house's environment is great. Very close from Manhattan but in a neighborhood more quite and although trendy and fun.
Besides, John is very welcoming and helpful, the addresses he gives saves you lots of time and bad experiences in "sheet-food-expensive-bill-tourist-restaurants", and, well... the human being living there is more than interesting. OK, I'll stop, but it's really the best address I've found in AirBnB so far.
My experience at John's place could only be described as perfection. This was my first Airbnb experience and it was worth every penny. John made me feel welcome, right at home and made my move to the city all the more pleasant. The room has a beautiful view of the park. The apartment is situated close to the L which takes you right into the city. It is situated in the best area, close to the action. The smell of clean sheets made sleeping here magnificent. I highly recommend staying here.
Si vienes a Nueva York recomiendo que te quedas en este apartamento. Yo me quede encantada con el hogar. John y Danny son muy amables, y te van a cuidar.
Another lovely stay with John and Kevin. Yes we did get Kevin all over excited by letting him up on the bed, but John forgave us. What a beautiful spot in any season. John, your patio garden is amazing!
See you in the fall!
