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... high ceilings, hardwood floor, 2 large windows... lots of natural light from southern exposure (view of nice, old church... see pics). 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. 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. It's kept clean and uncluttered... the decor is vintage... mostly 50's and 60's with the center-piece being a swanky bar.
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.

I'm from New York. I like things and stuff.... usually more than slightly aged. I'm in social media management... I'm creative... I like being on stage, but I don't have to be. You should totally stay at my place... it'll make you feel good. And I'll help you find things. Ask me anything else you'd like to know.
