About this listing
Check out all my listings! :-) Please note, I don't accept reservations more than 3 months in advance...
The Loft is a lovely & light-filled apartment in a waterfront rowhouse in Brooklyn's booming Greenpoint Historic District, on the riverfront just north of bustling Williamsburg. Walk to the Bedford "L" subway stop, or just a few blocks to the Greenpoint "G" stop. East River Ferry service (with multiple stops in Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Queens) is 2 blocks from the house, on the India Street waterfront. Plenty of restaurants, bars, boutiques, cafes, galleries, banks, gyms, etc all within blocks.
800 completely open interior square feet; kitchen, dining area, living room, bedroom nook and private on-floor bathroom. The apartment is located on the 2nd floor of a building which houses an antiques store on the first floor (which has a lovely garden, of which you have a view down below while gazing out at the stellar Manhattan skyline, including a fantastic view of the Empire State and the Chrysler Building!).
Commercial & residential dead-end street, terminating at Transmitter Park on the East River. Full kitchen with gas stove, oven and full-size refrigerator, microwave and dishwasher and washer/dryer. WiFi access. There is no television in this house, because you have better things to do here in NYC! There is a Bose ipod/iphone dock. This sunny loft is furnished with a variety of antiques and modern accessories, and features gorgeous exposed beams and beautiful original wide-plank floors. (*Please note: fireplace is NOT functional!) There is a window A/C unit, and this is an airy apartment with a fantastic cross-current, right on the East River, and in the winter months you'll be toasty warm; this entire building was a loving & complete gut job, with all brand-new electric and plumbing. Please be aware that this street is both commercial & residential; while the noise level is normal for NYC, this is not a "silent" apartment. Closing the front windows at night helps considerably.
Bedroom is a Queen size bed, and sleeper sofa opens to a Double bed.
Regarding the floorplan: It is of course a fully private apartment, it's just an old townhouse layout (the building was built in 1870s) -- your bathroom door and front door are literally right next to each other on the 2nd floor landing, and at the other end of that corridor is the door to the 3rd floor apartment. I own this property with my best friend Alex (a total sweetie) and he lives on the 3rd floor; his apartment is completely self-contained, and you won't be sharing any portion of your space with him.
Privacy & comfort await!

Thanks for looking, and we look forward to hosting you in fantastic Greenpoint!
**PLEASE NOTE: under NO circumstances is there to be any shooting/filming of any kind on the premises. I do periodically rent my spaces as locations for film & photo projects, but never at the standard Airbnb rate and never without a Certificate of Insurance. If you are interested in shooting, please provide me with all of your project details and we can potentially come to an agreement. Any unsanctioned shooting will be heavily penalized.
Everything at the apartment is quite self-explanatory!
Checkin at 2pm, checkout at 11am, though I do try to be accommodating with arrival & departure times so let's please coordinate directly.
I'll ask you to please adhere to local recycling rules, and will provide the proper receptacles. NYC takes recycling seriously & issues fines to landlords whose garbage & recycling aren't properly sorted; it's your obligation to adhere to the sorting rules, if not the fine will be applied to your Airbnb security deposit.
You are more than welcome to have a friend or two over and I certainly want you to make yourself at home and have a good time, but please no parties & no strangers.
NO shooting/NO filming.
Enjoy your stay!
