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.

Interaction with Guests
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. 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.
Other Things to Note
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 ( best suited for 2 adults / 2 children). Please let me know if you'll need that before you book it.
Sorry, no pets, candles, smoking or unapproved guests. Also, if you use any of the common areas, please keep them reasonably clean while you're here. Thanks!
Perfect host, perfect location and perfect apartment.
Lane was extremely hospitable, his apartment was immaculate. Ideal location for those visiting New York. Would highly recommend to anyone!!!!
Lane's place was better than expected! The condo was clean, beautifully decorated, well equipped and clutter free. Lane provided a large wardrobe for guest belongings -- an unusual feature for most airbnb's. The king bed was comfortable and dressed with hotel-like bedding. Communication with Lane was prompt and clear. My husband and I would definitely stay at his place again -- if we can find dates that are available. We can understand why his condo is in such demand.
I was caught in a blizzard coming from Manhattan but Lane waited until I arrived somewhat behind schedule . The apartment was great ... Very comfortable , stylish and accessible . Hi quality appliances and fitout made for an easy time . A large bed and nice linen , quality towels ... All made a difference . I was there for 12 days so I add ample time to appreciate the area and the aoartment . Close to everything and nice views.
The fridge was generously stocked which i didn't expect and after 12 days it felt like home .thoroughly recommend it .
Lane's apartment was lovely. He was beyond an exceptional host with easy communication, great recommendations, and little treats for the stay. The apartment is a few blocks away from the L and right on the park. I would highly recommend this location for anyone visiting Williamsburg or Greenpoint, BK.
I think James Bond uses this apartment as a save house whenever he stays in NY. That's the impression I got when I entered the living room from the elevator door. The one bedroom apartment is very clean, modern and cozy. Lane was very accommodating and pays close attention to details. I would highly recommend this place gem whenever staying in NYC. 5stars, Thanks Lane!!
The listing is exactly how described and even better. The apartment is lovely. It has everything you could want or need. The bathtub is one of my favorite features. It very conveniently located to the train and restaurants and shops. The communication with Lane with easy and and seamless. I would highly recommend this apartment.
Lane this time around prepared his place on short notice and met me at a later hour to hand over the key...which was greatly appreciated. I had business in NYC back to back weeks and noticed how quiet his place is, modern, and clean. Just an overall comfortable stay!
I'm down to earth, easy going kind of guy. I love going out to shows and all the great restaurants in Williamsburg. The community here is great and hope you get a chance to stay for awhile. Its the best.
