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.

Appartement was ruim en op een goede locatie gelegen! Op loopafstand veel restaurantjes. Ook het metrostation (voor metro richting Manhattan) ligt op twee blokken loopafstand. Hartelijk ontvangen door verhuurder en erg behulpzaam.
Appartement was schoon (ook de badkamer).
Bij volgend verblijf in NYC zouden we hier weer verblijven.
El apartamento esta genial, tiene todo lo necesario y en su sitio. A sido una estancia muy confortable, da gusto llegar al anochecer despues de estar todo el dia visitando la ciudad y poder descansar, las camas son muy comodas. El barrio es residencial, muy tranquilo y muy cerca de Manhattan en metro.
La anfitriona, Laurence, muy cordial y agradable, nos dejo lo necesario para desayunar y cocinar, algo que se agradece cuando solo te vas a quedar unos dias.
Although Laurence was not there when we were staying there, there were no problems with the keys for the appartment. The appartment is clean and cosy and is just likes it looks in the pictures. The location is great: grocery stores and restaurants are almost around the corner, the subway station is very close too, and so you can reach downton Manhattan really quickly. Brooklyn Promenade is within walking distance. There you can enjoy a great view of Manhatten . We had a wonderful time in Wycoff Street and can definitely recomment the place. We would stay there again.
Lawrence was a perfect hoster, the place was so good, the neiborhood is quiet and safe, closer the subway, the groceries, the pubs, etc. Just need improve the entrance because the rooms are excelent. I recomended with A+. Thanks a lot.
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.
I, Laurence, and my husband Reginald have owned our brownstone, in which the rental apartment "Wyckoff Street garden apartment" is located, since 1999.
We live above the rental apartment with our 3 children.
While we are new to Airbnb, we have been listed with NY Habitat since 2005.
