Welcome... to my retro pad in world-famous Williamsburg, Brooklyn! Here's what I have in store for you and all your lodging needs...
One clean, large, quiet, private bedroom... newly renovated... high ceilings, hardwood floor, 2 large windows... lots of natural light from southern exposure (view of nice, old church... see pix). Room is furnished with king-sized bed, chair, dresser, old kitchen compact unit (also known as a Hoosier... has a pull-out counter-top), bar for hanging clothes (closet space available, if needed). Fresh, clean towels and linens are provided. Air conditioning and heat are included.
The loft is unique, spacious, and comfortable... 1000 sq. ft. with 2 bedrooms I built a while back... it's kept clean and uncluttered... the decor is vintage... mostly 50's and 60's with the center-piece being a swanky bar. Care for a martini? You shall have this thing you speak of.
The fully equipped kitchen is available to you... refrigerator, gas stove/oven, microwave, coffee maker, toaster oven, juicer, and beyond. The bathroom is shared.
The building is safe and clean with an elevator and security cameras... and has an enormous roof-deck with incredible views of most of Manhattan (I have folding lounge chairs for all your roof excursions). There's laundry in the building (plus a 24 hour laundromat a block away). There's a gym in the basement (membership required... day passes available at $10/day)
Also... for your edification... the building is an old converted industrial building with finished lofts. Word on the street tells me the following:
1893... it was The I.S. Remson Manufacturing Company... "the largest carriage, harness, and horse goods emporium in the world" (there's just no good reason they would ever lie about a thing like that)
1908... The I.S. Remson Manufacturing Company (still into carriages, harness, horse goods)... also got into the car game... they were the Brooklyn dealership for a make called the Locomobile... the most expensive car in America at the time... they also had a garage/showroom over on Bedford.
1921... it was the Interstate Corrugated Box Company
1931... it was the Ainslie Knitting Machine Company
Location... location... location! The loft is a block and a half from the Grand St. stop on the "L" train... also close to the 3rd stop (Graham Ave.) which is just a few steps further away...either way the subway will get you to the East Village or Union Square in 10-15 minutes. Street parking is relatively easy.
The neighborhood is safe, friendly, and lively with lots of restaurants, bars, cafes, coffee shops, retail shops, and music venues. There's a 24-hr organic super market around the corner... there's a 24-hour deli on the corner.

Cool flat and host, recommended!!
We stayed at Pete's apartment for 10 days.
Pete is an extremely good host and we enjoyed staying with him.
The location is really, really good. Very conveniently situated with easy access to Manhattan. Lots of good restaurants in the neighborhood. A fantastic view of Manhatten from the rooftop.
This was my first airbnb experience and it went well. Pete was friendly andwelcoming. He answered my questions about the subway system and gave recommendations for places to go at night.
The room and apartment were exactly as described. The bed was very comfortable, I didn't want to get up! The bathroom and kitchen were clean.I had no issues with the apartment at all. I felt safe, the building can only be entered with a key.
Lastly, the location! It was perfect. It's a 3 minute walk to the L train, whichtakes you straight to Manhattan. But you can stat right there in Williamsburg and have a great time. The area is very cool, with shops, bars and restaurants all within walking distance.
If I go back, I would stay at Pete's again. I highly recommend.
I had a great stay at Pete's place.
Had good connection to Manhattan and plenty of good places close by to eat.
I had come over for a friends wedding so wasn't around to much but Pete was helpful and accommodating when I was and needed something.
We had a great stay at Pete' s place. Shared his love for vintage decor. Very convenient for local eating out - huge variety within walking distance. Easy subway to New York main 'attractions' and to the more alternative attractions of Williamsbrg area. Pete was an assiduous host, easy to be around. Good conversations too!
First AirBnB experience and what a way to start.I felt like it was home away from home,very clean,quiet and comfy, Pete is super friendly and calls it like it is.Handy to everything you need while you stay in New York only a few stops away on the train.Very safe,very secure.I will be back for sure.Thanks Pete
Pete is a good host, he was helpful and flexible. Nice apartment, located close to the downtown Manhattan.
Pete's place is great. It is very comfortable and incredibly clean. The room was large and very private, I appreciated the lock on the door for peace of mind when leaving valuables in the room during the day. The apartment is large and decorated with care. Pete is very professional with the way he runs the house and was very easy to communicate with. I made a last minute booking and Pete was very accommodating
Nice and clean room. Pete was very helpful. Good location to explore Williamsburg and a short subway ride to Manhattan. Great views from the rooftop.
Great place and very friendly and helpful host! Would recommend for any Airbnb traveller :)
