Room in Greenpoint Loft w/ Roof

Apartment - Private room · Anthony St, Brooklyn, NY 11222, United States

A private bedroom in an eclectic 3 bedroom loft apartment. Very close to lots of great bars, venues, shop, restaurants and activities in Williamsburg and Greenpoint, and just 30 minutes to central Manhattan. Best for laid back younger guests.

The Space

Available for short term stay is ONE of three separate small private rooms, each about 90 SF, with full bed mattresses lofted above the floor with some short steps up. There is a roof with some chairs and a good view of the Manhattan skyline.

It's very near delis, fun bars, really great restaurants, awesome pizza, a nice cafe, 15 minute walk or 5 minute b24 bus ride to the Graham L subway stop and 15 minute walk to the Nassau G, and 30 minutes total travel time to Union Square. That is a central subway hub. From there you can get to Times Square, Grand Central, Chinatown, and Wall Street area in 5-10 minutes, or the major museums in 15 minutes.

It is a 15-20 minute walk to Williamsburg, a very nice Brooklyn area with many great shops, restaurants, bars and a huge music scene. There are free transfers between the buses and trains. Also it's right off the Morgan exit of the BQE/395, which makes it a 10 minute, $20 dollar cab ride from LaGuardia and 20 minute $40 ride from JFK.

This is in a big 1,200 SF loft with 12 Foot ceilings, hard wood floors, fridge, microwave, shower(shared, across the hall, through my kitchen), 2 half bathrooms, a couch, recliner, kitchen table, two computers, and wifi. There's a lot of big windows, and great light during the day! I'll provide clean sheets and towels.

The space is a converted warehouse space with rooms built out above a hardware store and next to a gas station. It's pretty quiet other than the constant whooshing of the highway nearby, which is not an issue for most people. It's kind of like the ocean waves! When the windows are all closed, it's hardly noticeable. The rooms do not lock, but the apartment itself is behind a series of three locked doors.

It's right across the street from a nice residential neighborhood with all your needs.

Sometimes there's band practice or recording across the hall, but it's rarely noticeable in the bedrooms, and not very loud in the living room.

There's a full fridge, a double hotplate, a toaster oven, pots and pans, and salt and pepper for all your basic cooking needs.

There's also a teapot and tea, and a coffee machine and coffee, for your morning rituals.

There is a TV and a projector to watch movies on VHS, Blu-Ray, DVD, and Netflix! I have a pretty big and varied collection. Also I have a nice record player, and a pretty good collection of Records and CDs. There's an input to connect your iPod or other MP3 player to. There's a piano to play also, if you're so musically inclined!

I live in the building, so I'll be around pretty often if you need anything.

There are no animals here, but some pets may be OK for a few days.

Parking is plentiful, right in front, safe and free.

Available by the day, week or month for a couple months. If your dates don't look available on the calender, please inquire, as I have multiple rooms, and this system is sometimes inaccurate. Please read and follow the rules. Hope to talk soon!

Guest Access

Minimal but functional kitchen, 2 half bathrooms and one with a shower. Roof. Street parking. Living room with stereo, records, CDs, TV, Videos and Netflix. Lots of books and graphic novels.

Interaction with Guests

I live across the hall, so I usually stick to myself except for check-in, though if I'm not too busy, I'm often up for a beer around the corner!

The Neighborhood

Within a 5 minute walk, there's 4 bars. Two of them have great beers and food, and one also has a very nice whiskey collection. Two awesome pizza places are also 5 minutes away. Within a 15-30 minute walk this increases by at least 10x!

Best BQQ in the city: Fette Sau
A really fun bar any night: Union Pool
A great venue and fun place: Brooklyn Bazaar
Can't miss Smorgasburg and Brooklyn Flea during the warmer months!

Getting around

It's a 15 minute walk to the L train, or a 5 minute bus ride.

There's free parking right in front.

It's super easy by car, as it's right next to the Morgan Ave and McGuinness Ave exits of I-278.

LaGuardia takes 10 minutes and 20 bucks in a taxi! Double both for JFK, and triple for Newark. All are about 60-90 minutes by public transport.

  • Everything was exactly as expected! Our host provided us with all the information we needed to feel comfortable, and at home. This was my first time using this site and i'd say it was a solid first experience. I would recommend this place to anyone. I will admit, it was a little off the beaten path, with the nearest subway being a 15 minute walk away. On the contrary, there was some really good food and beer in this neck of the woods. Greenpoint Heights I believe it was called, is a amazing brunch spot only a few blocks away. Overall, good stay!

  • This stay was just great! The room was quite charming. I loved the livingroom. I felt very comfortable. Andrea is an outstanding nice, and very relaxed host.

  • This place is great to stay! The subway is about 15 minutes away walking. I was a little nervous before arriving because (website hidden) maps didn't make a lot of justice to the area, long story short, the area is pretty safe and I walked by myself a couple of times. There are three rooms in the loft, it has half bathroom inside and the shower is outside. The place is pretty comfortable, kitchen is small but we managed to cook large meals for the four of us with no problem. The rooms are a bit small, but there's plenty of space in the living room to hangout. I read that the highway was noisy but we could sleep up to noon with no problems. Andrea has a great music collection, and movies as well, everything you need for a snowy day. The place is a bit messy, but I think ithe was mainly because all three rooms were rented the time we were there. I fully recommend this place, and I would definitely stay here again. Thanks Andrea for the hospitality :)

  • Great dude, great place, great price! Perfect for people who want to go out in and around Greenpoint, 15$ cab ride to manhattan, the roof is amazing. Do I need to say more? I don't think so! Totally worth the price, oh yeah and parking space right in front all the time!

  • Hey! The place is ok for the price. The kitchen and living room are nice. Andrea is a really nice guy altough we didn't see him very often.
    The bathroom was quite dirty but it didn't bother us a lot. We weren't at home much.
    The rooms are ok but right next to a huge Highway so there is a loooot of noice. The bed was vibrating from time to time because of the big trucks on the Highway.
    The Subway is the one that bring's you right into Manhattan. You have to walk about 10-15 min to get to the station. All in all we liked the neighbourhood. It Is close to cool places in Brooklyn williamsburgh.

  • For the price and location of this place, it was so worth it. Upon checking in we met Andrea, who by far was one of the best hosts we had during our stay in NYC. Besides sharing some yummy brews on the rooftop, he made us feel very at home as we played records during the day and recommended some awesome places to check out at night.

    The place is lofted with each room separated for privacy and although cluttered the space was very very cool. We stayed there when there were other guests as well so it was nice meeting some new faces. The location was 15min walking distance from Williamsburg, which has tons of bars and food places but there are a few places down the street to check out as well and a very convenient little market. I would definitely recommend this place for future guests!

  • location is good, nice area, with an excelent view of the rooftop; but the apartments is messy and dirty, the shower is small and dirty, we had to clean the restroom because one of others guest left it impossible and Andrea said he couldnt clean it until next day.

    The rug of my bed was dirty with a lot of hair, I preffered not to use the pillows... is not easy to access the bed (in a mezzanine) from the wood stairs, you have to be vary careful.

  • Andrea is nice and is keen to make sure you are comfortable. The apartment and room itself were a little cluttered and untidy. The rooms do not have keys and as the apartment is shared with other guests I would have appreciated the option to lock my door. Also if it is possible request the room away from the highway, although I am not a light sleeper the noise was quite considerable at times.

  • This place is pretty much ok if you're a back packer and not used to stays in 5 stars hostel. It's nice to meet your roommates in the living room. Rooms are small, but it's not ment to fit a family trip. The shower definitely needs a cleaning but i've seen worst. It worth what it cost. andrea is a nice guy who is helpful when you're in needs.
