About this listing
A massive, sun-filled living room awaits you! On Greenpoint's main strip, adjacent to McCarren Park and close to the G and L trains, this apartment is the perfect base for a NYC trip.
The apartment is a large full floor unit with windows on all sides. It is situated above a bar, but if you are doing your NYC trip right you should be too tired to notice. It is probably not for the lightest of light sleepers - though our toddler sleeps through it just fine.
Two people can sleep comfortably on the queen-sized Tempurpedic in the bedroom with double blackout curtains. One to two more can be accommodated on the couch in the living room.
Keep your tasty leftovers in the fridge and enjoy breakfast and coffee at the dining room table before you go out for the day. Your reservation includes enough beans to make a pot of coffee every morning of your stay and an assortment of teas.
The bathroom is huge by Brooklyn standards and the shower has great water pressure.
Wireless internet and a washer-dryer in unit are also available. We don't have cable, but our television is connected to Netflix and Hulu.
Interaction with Guests
We try to greet guests and give them the keys when our schedule permits.
We will leave you a list of some of our favorite spots in the neighborhood as well as a subway map.
The apartment is located in the heart of North Brooklyn on the border of Greenpoint and Williamsburg, just blocks from great restaurants, cool bars, and excellent coffee shops. We will leave you a list of some of our recommendations but the neighborhood is perfect for exploring. We are only one stop from Manhattan on the L train or explore other neighborhoods in Brooklyn along the G train.
The building is adjacent the McCarren Park -- home to a large outdoor swimming pool, quarter-mile track, indoor fitness center, year round Saturday farmer's market, children's playground, and great people watching.
5 minute walk to the G train.
12 minutes walk to the L train.
Buses: B43, B48, B62 (stop right outside the door)
Affordable taxi or car service ride to/from LGA and JFK.
Other Things to Note
Nothing is worse than spending your first or last day in NYC wandering around with your suitcase. Check-in and check-out times are flexible and we are happy to try to accommodate you when possible.
No parties. No smoking. No pets.
Is was simply awesome. Great apartment, great communications, great neighborhood, everything really great.
The apartment was very big and clean! In a great location as well. Will definitely be renting again!
Staying in Brendan's apartment was great. It was clean and comfortable and Brendan left information, maps and instructions for us. The location was perfect for our weekend plans and we were in walking distance to the locations we wanted to visit with lots of restaurant and bar options right outside the door. I would definitely stay at Brendan's apartment again.
We had a fantastic time in New York and Brendan's home was amazing. It was the perfect location, easy access to the trains and heaps of great bars and restaurants. Brendan was such a great host as well, he kept in contact throughout our stay and made arrangements to help make our trip wonderful.
My husband and son enjoyed their stay at Brendan's place. The place is just as described-looks just like the photos, was a 10 minute walk to the subway into the city, and Brendan was very accommodating. He allowed us to drop off our things early so we could head to Manhattan for the day. His communication with us was great. I had lots of question about location, local eats, etc. He was friendly and informative (with many great suggestions), and a pleasure to work with.
Location is nice-close to the park, coffee shops, etc. Bed was very comfortable. Overall a great experience! We would definately recommend Brendan's place and stay here again.
Brendan emailed me several times to make sure we were on the same page regarding the keys to the apartment and what to expect.
Brendan and Amber's place couldn't have been more perfect for us. They were so helpful in so many different ways, and they were so flexible and willing to work with our schedule. The place was great and everything that we needed, and in perfect location for us. We couldn't be more grateful!!
