The apartment is located on S.3rd & Bedford Avenue - which is the beginning of the popular Bedford Avenue Strip. It's in the quieter end of it so you will enjoy the benefits of this busy neighborhood in a quiet space.
You'll be half a block away from great restaurants, bars, shops, food markets, etc.
The apartment is 7 minutes away from the L train on the Bedford Avenue Stop, one stop to Manhattan and 5 minutes from Union Square. The L train will take you from the East side to the West side connecting you to all of the major subway lines in NYC.
It is also located 7 minutes away in the opposite direction from the J/M/Z lines. These lines will take to the center of the Lower East Side, Chinatown, City Hall, Wall Street, and Fulton Street which is a 7 minute walk from the South Street Seaport. The M train will take you directly into Midtown.

Lulu is the kindest, most helpful person you'll ever meet!.
We stayed at her appartment for over a week and she made us feel at home instantly!
She has a lot of experience of New york and Williamsburg, giving us many advice on where to eat breakfast and what bars to visit!
She helped us alot more than we could possibly ask for.
Lulu is super easy to talk to, and we had some really nice moments with her.
We could not have asked for more!
Lulu! see you next time we're in New York
Nous avons passé 6 jours très agréables chez Lulu. L'appartement était très propre, à proximité de 2 stations de métro (qui mènent à Manhattan en 2 arrêts) et à l'angle de la Bedford Avenue rue animée et très agréable. Le quartier en pleine gentrification était très calme et compte de nombreux commerces ouverts 24/24, ce qui est appréciable après l'effervescence de Manhattan.
Jonah, le "apartment manager" a été très accueillant et nous a recommandé des adresses dans le coin. Lulu a été très sympathique et a toujours été disponible et très réactive par message (dommage que nous ne l'ayons rencontré que le dernier jour).
Seul point négatif : Jonah n'était pas là à notre arrivée (il avait une urgence)...nous avons donc attendu une petite heure qu'il arrive.
En tout cas je recommande Lulu et son appartement de Brooklyn!
We had a very nice time in New York City. Lulu's apartment is not huge, but large enough to feel really at home. Even the tiny bathroom is sufficient, if you do not expect a 4-star-hotel ;-). Even more, the flat is cozy and very convenient (e.g. close to the subway, close to supermarket, nice / hip area). The communication with Lulu and her apartment manager (Claire) was very easy: short response time, always reachable ...
In summary, we would definitely recommend Lulu's appartment! Thank a lot Lulu and Claire!
Tak for opholdet i Williamsburg. Vi nød turen til N Y C.
Lejligheden levede op til vores forventninger og Clair var venlig og hjælpsom.
Området med Bedford Ave. var især en positiv oplevelse.
Look beyond the weathered (boy do they have weather here!) building façade to find this delightfully warm, light, cosy yet surprisingly spacious apartment in the Williamsburg neighbourhood of Brooklyn. Well situated between the Subway stations (lines) of Bedford Avenue (L), Marcy Avenue (J,M,Z) and Broadway (G), travel between here and the rest of Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx and Manhattan is effortless.
Very well presented with a lot of character and charm containing everything we needed: 2 double rooms, bathroom (with in bath shower), all linen, spare toiletries, towels, full use of the kitchen (although you're likely to be eating out most of the time as it is a lot less expensive and you're on holiday!), guest information library, guest welcome booklet and a selection of games.
The Williamsburg neighbourhood appeared to be very clean, safe and was a stones throw away from the waterfront. A plethora of shops, coffee houses, bars, art galleries, restaurants and public outdoor spaces meant that we only scratched the surface of what there was to discover in the short time (5 days) we were there.
Our host made us feel welcomed, relaxed and even stayed awake to greet us for our delayed (the taxi drivers seem not to be required to know where anything is!) 2am arrival! - we would not hesitate to book this accommodation again.
We loved our stay at Lulu's cozy little apartment! It was perfect for 2, plus Claire who lives there, and we loved how homey it was. During some of the coldest days of the year, it was a warm and comfortable place to retreat to. Claire was very nice and easygoing and, though we didn't overlap much, she was welcoming and accommodating! The space was very clean and comfortable and we loved the neighborhood. Parking wasn't even bad! We would definitely stay again! Thank you Lulu and Claire!
Great, clean and really warm place on the fifth floor without elevator. Good location on fairly quiet street close to Bedford Av.
