Located in one of Brooklyn's primo hipster neighborhoods, my large one bedroom apartment with balcony is approximately 15 min from Manhattan's Lower East Side.

The Space

Located in one of Brooklyn's primo hipster neighborhoods, my large one bedroom apartment is located a few blocks from the express J train, approximately 15 min from Manhattan's Lower East Side. The apartment building is brand new with an elevator and very large finished roof deck with great views of Manhattan. I live on the 6th floor, not quite the penthouse but pretty darn close! The glass doors in the living room open up to a full sized balcony with nice views of Brooklyn. There are a couple lawn chairs and a small bbq if you feel like barbecuing. I don't mind smokers as long as you do it outside on the balcony. The bedroom has a queen bed with comfy brand new tempurpedic memory foam mattress. I can also accommodate two more in the large living room. I have a brand new Beauty-rest riser queen sized air mattress. It's really nice and extra sturdy. The kitchen has everything you need to cook a meal including dishes, pans, utensils, microwave, electric kettle and french press. There is also a dishwasher so no need to scrub the dishes while you're on vacation! The bathroom is clean and has a deep jaccuzzi bathtub, if you feel like a soak. I usually have some travel sized shampoo and soap if you forget to bring your own. And plenty of towels, so no need to pack those. The living room comes with flat screen tv, dvd player and streaming Netflix, along with other streaming channels you're free to use. The apartment has wifi so you can stay connected. The neighborhood is safe and I am very close to the the J train, just two stops from Manhattan's Lower East Side. There is also a bus right on the corner that will take you to Williamsburg, it is the no.47. In my neighborhood there are: eateries, grocery stores, laundromats, vintage and new clothing stores and two pretty hip bars just around the corner if you don't feel like venturing far. If you have any questions please feel free to ask!

Guest Access

You're free to use all of the dishes, pans, sheets and towels. Personal items such as; clothes, decor, etc... are not for use by guests.

Interaction with Guests

The whole apartment is for rent. I will not be there during your stay.

The Neighborhood

It's close to Manhattan by train and neighborhood is diverse. True, there are a lot of hipsters that live here, but the community has blended well with the folks that have been here for years. The subway is elevated near my apartment and you can see it in the distance when you look out the balcony. It's kind of romantic. Plenty of bars, restaurants, supermarkets, laundry--pretty much anything you need can be found nearby, but that's New York for ya!

Getting around

Access to the J and M train. J train is express and is a 15 minute ride to the Lower East Side of Manhattan.

  • I loved staying in Tracy's apartment. It is a real home away from home. Clean tidy and good style. Was just what I needed. It is an easy ride into Manhattan if that is where you want to go. Otherwise there is a lot of great stuff in Brooklyn. Fab juice and grocers shop near Myrtle st station! Tracy was great and contactable. Would definitely want to hang here again. Thanks Tracy

  • Tracy is a wonderful host. She could be accessed both before and during the stay. Three days before the trip, I had a change in travel plans which she was gracious enough to accomodate.
    Her ad was as described with accurate pictures and a clean environment.
    I always appreciate my rest when traveling. The bed has a solid foam mattress that brought back many happy dreams.
    I didn't have a driver or limo, so the subway system was my main mode of transportation. Tracy's apartment is near the Broadway-Myrtle station which is the junction of four main lines (G,M,J,Z). It is an easy ride to the apartment from JFK through Jamaica station on the J or Z line.
    During my stay, I was uncertain about which line to take on several occassions. The NYC MTA can be accessed via (website hidden) maps, which will plan your route for you. Its not foolproof, can be frustrating reading a dark screen and time consuming. Sometimes it was easier to ask a New Yorker for directions.
    I've often found it difficult to find good quality produce in many large cities. Mr. Kiwi is at the Broadway-Myrtle station and offers a great variety of fresh produce. This was perfect for breakfast or snack treats during the day. There is an abundance of economical good quality restaurants within 15 minutes of the apartment.
    I would stay at Tracy's on any occassion. She's accomodating and provides an honest description of her apartment.

  • Nous étions à notre premier voyage à Brooklyn, nous voulions découvrir ce quartier de New-York. L'appartement de Tracy était génial pour cela, il est très bien situé, près du métro, et de quartiers intéressants de Brooklyn. Le logement était très propre, agréable, confortable et chaleureux. Nous y retournerions sans hésitation!

  • We wanted to stay in Brooklyn, rather than Manhattan, and we chose this apartment because of location and availability. There were 3 different subway stops within easy walking distance, and the rest of Brooklyn was reasonably easy to get to. Manhattan was actually easier to reach.

  • We enjoyed our stay at Tracy's place - it's clean and comfortable, and near the subway so it is easy to get to Manhattan. The neighbourhood is interesting, with some small bars and restaurants nearby (although Bushwick can feel a little edgy late at night, it's wise to take a taxi home!). We liked it though and would happily stay again.

  • The Tracy's flat is really good. My friends and I were really satisfy by the disponibility of Tracy. The flat is great, clean with a big livingroom, a free wifi access that is really helpful when you want programm your activities in NY, a balcony to stay outside with a typic view of Brooklyn. The neighboorood is popular and safe with a really easy connexion with the J and M lines that go directly to Manhattan. We really had a great time in this flat and we didn't have any bad surprise. Thanks to Tracy.

  • We stayed at Tracy's apt for three nights and we spent really amazing time there. The apt was spacious, bright, clean and cozy. Princey, her cat, was really easy-going, he slept 99% of the time we were there) The apartment is located just 3 minutes from J and M subway station, so you can reach Manhattan as well as the transfer station to JFK just in few minutes. And if you have some question and text Tracy, you can expect that she will answer you in a minute!

  • Tracy is sweet and available for all informations. The apartment is beautiful, sunny, two minutes walk from the train station.

    The district may, at first, seem a bit ghetto, but it turns out to be great! 1 minutes to a thrift(second hand store to the apartment on Broadway worth seeing, small bars also for frenzied hipsters' nights.

    I stayed here for 5 days with two friends and we had a great time, taking breakfast on the balcony before going to visit Manhattan !
    The cat is super quiet, a old cat, but really easygoing.

    Well, I strongly advise you to stay in the Tracy's apartment !

Hi! My name is Tracy. I've lived in NYC for 10 years and love it! I love to travel and have used airbnb myself. I think it's so much better than a hotel. You really get a sense of what it's like to live in that city. My place is available on a limited basis, but I will let you know right away whether or not i can host you. Thanks for considering my apartment. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask!
