Situated on McCarren park, this large luxurious 1 Bedroom 1.5 Bath is at the center of the action in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Steps from all the bars and restaurants on Bedford Ave. Enjoy a gourmet kitchen, doorman, roof deck access, and close proximity to Manhattan via the L subway line.
The apartment has floor to ceiling windows with southern exposures and view of Brooklyn. The direct elevator access make for a dramatic entry. Sub-Zero refrigerator, Wolf range, and black granite countertops. DWR theater sofa, with 50" Plasma TV with Cable TV and DVD. Marble vanities in bathrooms, lighted magnifying makeup mirror, Zuma soaking tub and slate-tiled shower in master bath.
Common roof deck with sweeping views of Manhattan skyline and Brooklyn. Common gym area located on the roof as well.
Minimal interaction but will provide as much contact or information as needed. Very private, quiet, relaxing.
Williamsburg is known for being a hub for trendy bars and restaurants, indie music venues, vintage clothing, and a vibrant art scene. Music Hall of Williamsburg and Glasslands attract both big name and smaller indie bands. A new addition to the neighborhood is the Brooklyn Night Bazaar -- "a night market and concert space that brings together independent vendors, musicians, chefs and artists." Some excellent restaurants are Five Leaves, Aurora, Brooklyn Star, Paté et Traditions, Traif, Cafe Mogador and Peter Luger's. The apartment is also across from the newly renovated McCarren Pool and Play Center, with Olympic sized swimming pool in the summer and ice skating rink in the winter.
5 streets from the Bedford L subway stop -- you can be in Manhattan door to door in 10 minutes. From the airport, taxis can take the BQE (Brooklyn Queens Expressway) to the Metropolitan exit and turn right on Union Ave. If you would like to use a car service, I recommend Northside Car Service, which is local to Williamsburg.
Bottled water, juice and bagels provided. A complimentary bottle of wine is given to guests staying over 4 nights. There is a fold-out twin sleeper bed as well as bedding for the couch. Sleeps 4. Please let me know if you'll need that before you book it.

Lane and his place is more than I could have asked for. He was always there via phone whenever I needed him. Setup was easy, doorman was a ton of help and friendly, neighborhood was peaceful and safe, and the apartment itself was immaculate. Don't second guess when booking this place, especially for the price he has it listed for, nothing will beat it. He even had a bottle of wine for us, and the bagels with drinks stocked in the fridge just topped everything off. Wish I stayed longer. Already missing it all.
The apartment is perfect and Lane was very responsive via email / texts. This experience exceeded my expectations. Highly recommended!
So this place isn't just an apartment someone rents out when he's out of town -- it is stocked and set up as an upscale, full service hotel suite. It's fantastic. This would cost $700+ a night at the Wythe or any decent midtown hotel. The space is much larger and more impressive than the photos convey; check-in was a breeze. Close to Bedford L stop. There was a complementary bottle of wine and some chocolates waiting for me when I got there (!). Fridge has OJ, sparkling water -- very nice! I don't know what else to say. If I'm staying in BK again I'm staying here.
The host also reached out via text to make sure I had everything I needed, which was nothing, because the place was perfect.
Perfect week-end visiting our children! Apartment was a dream and views were heavenly. Walking distance to so many great Williamsburg restaurants and watering holes. Lane was a superb host who anticipated our every wish -keurig, juices, bagels, wine bottle opener, comfiest bed, bath salts etc...No more over priced miniscule hotel rooms for us...we have found our go-to place for all future Brooklyn visits.
Couldn't have wished for a better place to stay! It was our first time in NYC and I would definitely recommend staying in Williamsburg. It's got a great vibe and so easy to get the subway to Manhattan from Lane's apartment. The apartment was just as it looks in the photos, clean, modern and very comfortable. Lane was always easily contactable and helpful, what a great place!
Lane's apartment is stunning. We felt like we'd stumbled into a trendy five star hotel. It is stylishly and thoughtfully decorated, and it turns out a lot of the art is actually by him. Everything was pristine, there was a bottle of wine and chocolates to greet us, water and juice in the fridge, and bagels in the freezer. Lane also left a helpful list of local restaurants, bars and cafes, including family-friends ones for us. Lane responded promptly to e-mail and phone calls. I doubt you could find a better host or apartment.
Lane was an excellent host. Very responsive and friendly. His place is clean, tastefully decorated, & a great location for 'Williamsburg' life. Lane added value to our stay with complimentary coffee, wine, bagels, & comfort. If you are looking to stay in Williamsburg he should be your first inquiry.
Our best experience with Airbnb so far!
The apartment is perfect and the location is great!
We were travelling with our 1 year old baby and Lane provided us with a high chair and a baby bed. There was also a bottle of Wine and some chocolate for us, as well as some Orange juice and water in the fridge.
We didn't meet Lane but he was always available via text messages or email during our stay.
I will recommend this location to friends and family. If i have to go back to NYC i will definitely try to stay at this place again.
Thanks for everything Lane!
My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Lane's luxurious apartment! We were very appreciative of the bottle of wine, chocolates, coffee/tea, stocked fridge, and toiletries left for us. The building is very safe, quiet, and a short walk from the station and plenty of restaurants. The view, bed, and bathtub are all especially amazing! The apartment is also bright and spacious, exactly as pictured in the photos. We would happily stay at Lane's place again!
we really loved lanes place and it felt like home right away.
he left us the the appartment in a perfect state. absolutely clean and nice!
the fridge was filled with drinks and food, coffee and wine for us to use, too. very nice doormen and great location!
i already miss the view, especially when the sun is shining in there all day.
can't wait to come back to nyc and stay in this appartment!
