This Penthouse apartment sits directly on Mccarren Park, with Iconic views of NYC. 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.
The guest bathroom will be shared with the Skybox, which is another room in the Penthouse that I also rent out here on Airbnb.
McCarren Pool is just across the street, a 7,200-square-foot arena, open to the public seven days a week and is FREE, so bring your bathing suit.
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.
Other Things to Note
There is a cute, "overly friendly" 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...he's 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 only permitted outdoor, on the terrace but NOT in the room. Pets and guest, not on the lease are not allowed. This is simply a nice, clean & safe place to sleep and experience Williamsburg NYC.
Am accurate description of a very high spec apartment in Willamsburgh, Brooklyn.
The room was clean and comfortable and the host was very happy to allow you to lounge in the beautiful common areas of the living area and amazing terrace which I made use of!
The chilled water dispenser and coffee machine were great touches and the apartment is decorated very nicely - all in a la perfect experience and the location allowed me to visit Manhattan easily (1 stop on the subway) but get out of Manhattan and watch amazing sunsets from the terrace.
The friendliness of John the host and Kev really added to my experience. I really do hope to visit again this summer!!!
Thank you John, Danny & cutie Kevin for this gorgeous stay again at your place. We had the chance to stay in your fabulous place once more. All you did with your warm hearted treatment of us and your guests made us feel home and being among friends.
Nothing is missing, everything well organized as we love it. John s place we can only recommend. The location, the loft-type apartment, the terrace with the excellent view, the equipment...... i am traveling a lot...but i can only top rate this. Not comparable with a hotel room at all. Suppose it was not the last time. Pictures of the Rooftop party will be sent in short. Keep on going like this, guys. Huggies.
John's flat has a very good location in Williamsburg. The building is nice, you go with the elevator directly into the flat, very practical, the terrace is beautiful, bathroom and bed everything very comfortable. John was very friendly; it was great to chat with him from time to time.
I slept for 9 hours after a busy NY day:-)
Thanks a lot!
Very good location in Williamsburg, you can go to Manhattan by subway or by ship. I travel alone so I pay more attention on the safety. The neighborhood is good with lots of restaurants. And the building has a private elevator directly into the flat. The bed is extremely comfortable and bathroom is clean.
John is very friendly and helpful. And the bed is extremaly comfortable.
p.s Kevin is so cute!
It was a very good expereince for my first Airbnb.
Thanks a lot!
John and his cute dog "Kevin" were fantastic hosts. John is very friendly, laid-back and made us feel at home from the first minute we stepped in to his great apartment. He even offered us a lift to South Brooklyn as we were running late and was happy to watch "Game of Thrones" with us on his bis screen! The terrace is huge from where you can enjoy an evening beer with a stunning view of the Manhattan skyline. Just fantastic. The room is convenient and clean. We will definitely go back to John's apartment when we are travelling to New York the next time.
I've been trying to think what to write that hasn't been written before regarding the accommodation and hosts, and to be honest it is so difficult as all of the positive things written about the listing and John and Danny are 150% true.
They are not only wonderful hosts but wonderful people too. Always available to offer helpful suggestions and they go out of their way to help when needed.
The home is a great place to stay and has easy access to the train station.
We were thoroughly spoiled and we find ourselves comparing other places to this.
Kevin (the French Bulldog) is lovely and he makes you feel right at home.
I cannot recommend this listing and the hosts John and Danny highly enough and we hope that when we come back to New York there will be room for us.
Thank you John and Danny for being exceptional hosts to Malcolm and I.
