About this listing

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, 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!
Lane's apartment in Williamsburg were an fantastic base to explore New York from. Close to subway that brings you fast to Manhattan and of course all nice places on Bedford street in Williamsburg. It was also very convenient to have McCarren park just outside and we trained every morning before we started to explore NYC.
The apartment is very comfortable, very nice furnished and equipped with anything needed. We were a family of five and used an airbed and a foldable bed and it was still very comfortable.
Lane is also a great host. Very fast on answering questions and made us very welcome to his place.
So, we strongly recommend Lane's place.
We had a great time in Lane's Appartment. Especially going up to the roof with the fantaatic view to Manhatten we realy enjoyed. But also the Appartment was great, very clean, very nice interior and enough space for all of us. Lane responded always very quickly and even during our stay, he wanted to know, wether everything is ok. We just can recommend it.
We loved the apartment and location. Next to a huge open green space/parkland, which was so nice on hot summer days. We arrived late and Lane was happy to meet us and settle us in. Thanks again Lane for everything!
When I come to New York next time I hope I can stay in Lane's place again. The flat itself is great itself as advertised. Getting to Manhattan is easy and fast. And then there's the McCarren Park right in front of the house including a free public outdoor pool (probably open only in the summer?). I swam there almost every day during my stay.
On top of that Lane was very quick to respond to all queries. Thumbs up!
Lane made us feel very very welcome and his flat was an absolute dream - exactly as described. The wine, chocolates and bagels were a nice touch.
It was in a perfect location, just 10 mins from Bedford Avenue metro and 3 stops into Manhatten. With this flat you get the best of both worlds - the vibe of Williamsburg with so many great places to eat plus access to the sights of New York.
I would certainly recommend Lane and his apartment to anyone thinking of staying in New York.
I just can say excellent! Thanks lane for the great time, we had in your appartment.
Lane was a very courteous host. His apartment was one of my favorite airbnb stays. Our stay was perfect!
