About this listing
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.
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, El Born, 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!
