About this listing
Unwind in your loft-like 3 bedroom, AirBnB-dedicated apartment in our 1901 curved, brick home on the most beautiful block in Bushwick, Brooklyn. Enjoy local park, restaurants, grocery store, and the L Train. Licensed+Legal.
You get the full second floor apartment all to yourself. It's dedicated to AirBnB guests--that is, it's not someone else's home the rest of the year, so there's never a build up of dust or clutter. It's all yours! Your friendly hosts, Roberta and Chris, live on the first floor.
Bedroom 1 sleeps 2~12x10ft with two 6ft windows that face the yard and large. Queen Bed. Double-closet.
Bedroom 2 sleeps 2~14x8ft with one 6ft window that faces the yard. Queen bed. Closet.
Bedroom 3 sleeps 2~9x6ft, but feels voluminous with 12ft ceilings and stunning 6ft window. I call it the Zen Bedroom. Full or "double" bed. No closet.
Living room sleeps 2~queen-sized futon has individually wrapped springs for a real-bed feel. No closet.
The apartment is 1010 square feet, most of which is an open, loft-like space that includes the gourmet kitchen, dining area, and living area with 11 foot ceilings. Sunlight pours through 6 foot windows. The stunning single bathroom has both a tub/shower and a standing shower with a skylight.
Interaction with Guests
We will welcome you in person. We are available to answer any questions about your visit to Brooklyn and NYC and are happy to tell you about the neighborhood. Included in the price is your breakfast of bagels, spreads, fruit, orange juice, peanut butter and jelly, hummus, coffee, tea, and creamer, delivered at 8:30am, Monday-Saturday (Sunday's breakfast is delivered with Saturday's) or you can opt-out. We'll have umbrellas for you in the rain and sunblock for you in the heat. Alternatively, we can give you privacy.
From New York to Paris, the neighborhood of Bushwick is on everyone's lips. The neighborhood is known for its diverse community, full of families with school age children, where we enjoy an exciting convergence of cultures, arts, foods, and experimentation. Bushwick is known for its industrial history, but our street is an oasis of trees and curved brick homes, a beauty that rivals Greenwich village. (Don't forget to look at our Guidebook!)
We are 1/2 block to Irving Square Park, recently renovated to feature rolling lawns, meandering pathways, full play ground and jungle gym, roses, and benches.
The neighborhood features many food options. Food Bazaar is a large, excellent grocery store within walking distance. Tony's Pizzaria will deliver humungous pizzas when you're exhausted. Houdini's Kitchen Laboratory is an authentic Italian style restaurant the NYTimes awarded 4 stars a short walk away. Yum. We also have “a zillon" bodegas and coffee shops, pharmacies, and bars. A longer walk or short train ride away is Roberta's, a famous restaurant where the Clintons and Beyonce have dined, as well as our own favorite vegan diner, Champs.
A mile path around a reservoir is a 10 minute jog away.
Public transportation is 2 blocks away at the Halsey Street "L" Train stop, part of the 24-hour NYC subway system. The "L" train is the preferred train for many New Yorkers because it crosses all other train lines on its way to and through Manhattan, it runs frequently (every 5-10 minutes), and is the most frequented/used. The ride from Halsey Street to Manhattan takes 20 minutes. Union Square is 25-30 minutes.
JFK and LaGuardia International Airport are convenient to the house. Suggestions and directions are located on the reservation confirmation.
