The Space

Similar to the contrast between the magnitude of the entire city skyline seen from our roof and the birds outside our window, we built a loft that captures an NY artists energy and a quiet refuge. We our so lucky to live here and even more to share our home.

Similar to the contrast between the city skyline seen from our roof and the bird sanctuary outside of our window, we built a loft that captures an NY artists energy and a quiet refuge. We our so lucky to live here and even more to share our home.

Cozy 800 square ft loft with views of city skyline. Rooftop access and a location 2 blocks from East River ferry or subway giving you almost instant access to New York city whether visiting or admiring from across the river.

Would you believe that Brooklyn is quiet? Maybe not all of our borough is so sweet and serene, but we are lucky enough to wake up to a bird sanctuary in our backyard. Our FOUR windows look out to trees and beyond that, the midtown skyline. After living street-side in my first two apartments here, I thought New York really was the city that never sleeps. Now I know that some of us sleep perfectly well! You just need to be in our apartment.

Great shops and restaurants in our quiet neighborhood give you perfect home-base to attend Broadway shows or go shopping and sightseeing without having to stay in the city or pay NYC hotel prices.

Full kitchen, bath for two, queen size mattress in separate sleeping area and enclosed guest nook with full size futon. Wifi and air-conditioning to make your stay an easy and comfortable one.

We have fallen in love with the neighborhood to the point that my wife has opened up a salon called the Parlour Brooklyn down the street. We are mainstays in this neighborhood, but when we leave on the weekend or for vacation we have loved sharing our home.

One of our favorite things about Brooklyn, is that you get to SEE the city and there is nowhere better to do that than our roof. Some of our neighbors are into rooftop gardening, but with our crazy lives, we like to put a blanket down for a beer or a picnic with wine.

We know you will enjoy your stay!

Per a recent request, a parking spot can be reserved for an additional fee.

Small dogs are allowed for an extra fee. Unfortunately we have cat allergies.

*There is a freight elevator in the building, but lately out of order more than it is working. As of 7/20/13, I am removing it from the amenities. Please expect a three floor walk-up and if the freight is available, lets call it a bonus.

**I have never listed cable TV, but I often get questions about not getting any stations on the TV. There are many DVD's in the apt, but to reiterate... there is no cable.

*** Our place still rocks!

I always try to get back to our guests questions within a couple hours prior to their arrival. We are around the neighborhood often but mostly we stay out of our guests way. When they need a guide and I am able to step away from the toddler business, I have enjoyed a beer from time to time, but I think our guests have preferred feeling like our home was their home for a while.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • This apartment is beautiful and extremely comfortable (best night's sleep ever). The view from the roof is even better than the photos make out, and there are loads of great places to eat get breakfast/brunch/dinner nearby (favourites: Champion Coffee on Manhattan, Eagle Trading on Franklin/Eagle and 5 leaves on Bedford Avenue). Pat was a v. helpful and straightforward host. Thanks!

  • We had a great time in Greenpoint. The area is great for little shops, restaurants and hanging out. The street, where the apartment is located is quiet and the area is totally safe. And the roof top has the most amazing view of the manhattan skyline.

  • We stayed with Pat for the first stop on our honeymoon roadtrip. The apartment is absolutely lovely and the location was perfect. The view from the roof was worth our trip alone, but the bed maybe the most comfortable one I've ever slept on. Pat was brilliant throughout our stay and the booking process, even offered to send us a bottle of wine when he realised it was our honeymoon. Would definitely recommend it and would undoubtedly go back.

  • Lieber Patrick,

    die Wohung ist wirklich toll und verfügt über eine gute Lage.
    Mit den öffentlich Verkehrsmitteln ist man sehr schnell in der Stadt. Man sollte sich aber auch Brooklyn anschauen, da es auch hier viele nette Ecken und Restaurants gibt. Deine ganzen Tipps waren sehr hilfreich, wir einige zum frühstück geteste. Wir würden wenn wir das nächste mal in NYC sind gerne wieder bei dir übernachten.

    Vielen Dank.

  • Great place to stay in the area of NYC. Well situated and good if you have friends visiting you. Pat is very present to answer quickly when you have any questions or need. And you CAN park your car in streets around for free! Quite important in NY
