The Space

This classic NYC one bedroom apartment in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn offers a comfortable and charming setting within a trendy NYC neighborhood. Conveniently, this home is just down the street from the F and G trains, taking you into Manhattan in just 3 short stops!

Located on Wyckoff Street & Hoyt Street, the contemporary brownstone apartment combines the old-world charm of exposed brick walls and decorative fireplaces with modern amenities for comfort and convenience. It sits on the ground floor of a 4-story owner occupied building.

Hard wood floors, an exposed brick wall, and a white decorative fireplace decorate the charismatic living room. Here you will find such basic amenities as a wooden dining table, double-sized convertible sofa bed, and modern artwork. Two windows look towards a residential street, providing ventilation and natural illumination.

A compact kitchenette area is open to the living room. This commodious space offers countertops, white cabinetry, and most essential cooking appliances, such as an electric stove, microwave, coffee maker, electric kettle, toaster and small refrigerator with a mini-freezer compartment. The elegant white-and-blue tiled bathroom supplies a sink with cabinets, full-sized tub/shower with curtain, and toilet.

A hallway with linen shelving leads from the living room to the bedroom. It includes a double-sized bed facing an exposed brick wall; the decorative fireplace has been converted, now housing cabinets and the small TV. Closet space, dresser drawers are also included. The windows look onto a grassy garden and patio area (not available to renters).

Please Note: There is no door separating the bedroom from the living room. As a result, privacy may be limited for larger parties.

Boerum Hill, Brooklyn is a largely residential New York neighborhood near Cobble Hill and Gowanus. A truly lovely environment, it features tree-lined streets and historic brownstone apartment buildings, which have become a staple in NYC. For your convenience, a Laundromat is located just around the corner on Hoyt Street. Along Smith Street or restaurant row, you will find a hub of restaurants and small shops.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Laurence is a great host with a lovely apartment.
    Our late check in did not cause a problem for her.
    Location is really handy, 3 min. walk to train F, peaceful neighborhood.
    Good price/performance overall.

    Tip: Try Cafe Luluc (2-3 blocks south) for a great american breakfast :-)

  • Definite pros and cons to staying here. It's a good price with good space in a very convenient location. The hosts were easy to deal with. However, we could hear every step they took on the floor above us and we needed ear plugs to sleep past 7 am. The bed is also very uncomfortable. Not a bad experience overall, but I will keep looking the next time I visit NYC.

  • My husband and son and I had a great experience staying at this apartment. The neighbourhood is great and central to many subways and a short ride to manhattan. The facilities were clean and comfortable, I would recommend this place to friends wanting to stay in Brooklyn.

  • Bon appartement, conforme aux photos et description. Nous avons apprécié le style typique du coin, le calme de la chambre qui donne sur le jardin ainsi que la disponibilité et flexibilité de Laurence. En effet, nous avons pu nous installer dès notre arrivée, aux alentours de 9h du matin.
    Nous recommandons cet appartement :).
    Merci !
