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.

Es war sehr gemuetlich in Lulus Wohnung und wir haben uns sehr wohl gefuehlt. Eine ruhige Wohngegend und nah zur Subway, sind gute Voraussetzungen für einen Besuch in Big Apple.
The house was really nice,everything was clean and tidy and the neighborhood is just amazing. Lulu wasn't there so Claire welcomed us and has been really helpful, we stayed there for 9 days and we enjoyed every moment.
Lulu et Claire (son apartment manager) se sont montrées très prévenantes et disponibles pour organiser notre arrivée à l’appartement et s’assurer que notre séjour se déroulait bien.
Le logement est tel que décrit dans l’annonce, très propre et fonctionnel. Pour ceux qui ont le sommeil sensible, la chambre donne sur la rue, mais cela n’est pas gênant avec une bonne paire de boule quies.
Comme indiqué dans d’autres commentaires, il n’y a pas de lavabo dans la salle de bain, mais cela n’est pas très gênant pour un séjour de quelques jours.
Le quartier est très sympa (beaucoup de restaurants, bars, …) et bien desservi par le métro qui permet de rejoindre facilement Manhattan.
Lulu's place is lovely and very cosy. The room was clean, the bed comfortable and we didn't have anything to complain about.
As others already wrote, the bathroom is very tiny, but even for us (we are both very tall) was it still ok to use.
We had free coffee or tea and towels which was nice.
Unfortunately we didn't meet Lulu in person, because she wasn't in the US during that time, but her apartment manager Claire took care of us. She was so nice and helpful with everything. She even took us out the first night for some drinks, which was very cool.
The neighborhood is just perfect. You get very quickly to Manhattan but at the same time you live in a very hip area that offers everything you need. Hip bars, cafes, shops, galleries and restaurants.
We definitely enjoyed our stay at Lulu's place and we would recommend it for sure!
And because there are two rooms, that can be booked with airbnb, you are able to meet other travellers and people from all around the world, which is awesome, too.
Thank you for letting us feel so welcome. We will be coming back again when its warmer in NY :)
Lulu is very organised and she made everything so clear before we came. The description was accurate and it looked similar to the pictures. We had lots of space to store our stuff.
We liked the neighbourhood, lots of cool cafes, bars and shops and we went to a few of the places that Lulu suggested. We felt safe walking around at night and it wasn't hard to find the subway.
Lulu' place is a lovely old Brooklyn building. Her manager Claire lives on the property and does everything she can to help out. I didn't have internet for a day and she bent over backwards for hours on the phone to get it back online. If you're tall like I am the bathroom might be a little cramped for you, and the sink is in the kitchen, but I think most people under 6' should be fine.
Plenty of heat in the cold NYC weather and the place was very homey. A great place to live if you don't mind a 5th floor walk up.
Lulu is also very accessible through airbnb and gets back to you very quickly. Had a comfortable stay.
Lulu was a pleasure to deal with and although she was not in town at the time of my stay, she was super efficient at communicating.
The apartment is located in a great spot! It is at the beginning of Bedford Ave; a nice street to walk, eat, shop and catch the subway. We also walked home from Manhattan over the Williamsburg Bridge.
The apartment was as described; simple yet cosy. It was extremely clean!!! We stayed in the front guest room; the bed was comfortable (mattress was foam) and the shared bathroom includes a toilet and bath/shower (the basin is shared in the kitchen).
Overall a good experience and great value for money!
