A true-loft living experience in the heart of hip Williamsburg. Your own private bedroom in a spacious 2-bedroom, shared with a long-time veteran of the neighborhood who is happy to share insights and suggestions with you.
Settle into your own private room and work space in a spacious and stylish loft on one of the best blocks in the Burg. Ideal location - just a 3-minute walk from the Bedford stop on the L train, which will get you to Union Square in Manhattan in 5 minutes. You can also catch the East River Ferry from the nearby North 6th Pier.
On North 9th St., you are in the center of it all but still on a quiet, tree-lined block. The high street of Bedford Avenue is two short blocks away, and one block in the other direction is gorgeous East River State Park. You’ll be perfectly positioned to take in the neighborhood’s countless cool bars, restaurants, boutiques and events.
As for the space, the loft is on the 3rd floor of a former factory building. In all it is approximately 1,100 square feet, with 12-foot ceilings throughout, a huge common living room space with Manhattan and Brooklyn views, and a massive roof deck with sweeping views of the East River and Manhattan skyline.
The bedroom I’m offering is about 11’x12’ with a 12’ ceiling, a sliding barn-door, queen size bed, and a wall of shelving, closet space and hooks for all your belongings. It is freshly painted and freshly furnished with everything you’ll need including a clock-radio with iPod dock. It is one of two bedrooms in the space (not a multi-roommate flophouse situation.)
In addition to the room, you will also have use of a large steel desk and file cabinet in the shared office area, a good place from which to work or catch up on emails.
There are two washers and two dryers at the end of the hall which are FREE, so you won’t have to haul your clothes to a laundromat.
There is a large freight elevator right outside the apartment, so no matter how much luggage you have getting it into the apartment will be a breeze.
The open kitchen is fully functional and I have all of the basics if you should feel like cooking for yourself.
As a host I am easy-going, fun to be around, and out a lot of the time. I work during the day and go out most evenings. I can be as engaged or distant as you need me to be. I can take you out for drinks or send you off on your own.
Any other questions? Ask me!!
In short, here’s what you’ll get:
•Your own well-appointed room with fresh linens and towels
•Your own desk in common office area
•Huge roof deck with panoramic skyline & river views
•FREE laundry down the hall
•Freight elevator for your luggage
•Basic Cable TV
•AppleTV with Streaming Netflix
•Tons of closet space and storage
•Huge, comfortable and well-furnished living room space with a dining table
•A charming and accommodating host!
Make yourself comfortable! Lounge in the spacious living room to read or watch TV. Help yourself to complimentary coffee and tea in the mornings, or cook yourself a gourmet dinner in in the fully equipped kitchen.
I'm happy to give you as much or little input as you want or need. I know the neighborhood and city very well and am happy to point you in the right direction.
The Bedford Avenue stop of the L train is just a 4 minute walk away. From there you are 5 minutes from Union Square in the middle of Manhattan.
living in williamsburg really makes sense, local, city, urban, cool, best hipster bars;-) restaurants. Annes place is 2 blocks from the L train. so you can be in Union Sq in less than 10 minutes - leaving her urban NY city loft. Anne has a brilliantly cool place - a loft bigger than most NY apartments - I had to work out of her house. and the layout of the apartment made it possible to work/talk etc without feeling like an intruder and her style is quality/personal/hipster cool. Anne is laid back in the best way. she is also very NY so she can "update" you in all the best ways. any day, from now on her place in williamsburg will be my absolute first place to check when back in NY - Anne if you read this.. you were a brilliant host, laid back, both open and private- I love that.. we will meet again, I am sure. my absolute best recommendations xx Majken
We had a great stay at Anne's loft! She was super helpful all the time and had lots of good suggestions about what to do in the area. Her loft is super cool and the location just off Bedford Avenue is just perfect. I would definitely stay with her again!
Anne was a great host. She took time out of her Friday night to let me in and get me settled. We chatted a couple times throughout the weekend, but mostly I did my own thing.
Her loft was trendy, neat, and welcoming. Even during a December snowstorm, it was warm inside. The room I stayed in had plenty of closet space for my clothes and things. The bed was comfy and came with nice pillows.
As I was leaving, Anne offered me cookies. Thanks and happy holidays!
Perfect NYC choice!!!
From not knowing NY I thought this place was a little "out of town"... I was wrong. The location was my favorite on my trip, great little pubs and restaurants around. Subway station a really short walk away. You are in the center in minutes!
Apartment was great! Safe, internet, warm. Everything you need!
It is really nice that you can leave Manhattan to go home, then go for a drink on a nice rooftop bar and over look the skyline!
Hemos pasado 9 días en casa de Anne y han sido fantásticos. Su casa está muy bien equipada y cercana a conexiones de metro y en pleno centro de Williamsburg. Hemos pasado unos días increíbles en nueva york. Por lo que recomendamos sin duda su casa como alojamiento para realizar una visita a fondo de la ciudad.
Anne was the perfect host. I rented the room for my parents who had a really great time staying at her place. Very well located in one of the best neighborhood in NYC. Highly recommended.
My sister and I had the greatest time staying with Anne in her Williamsburg apartment. Anne was so welcoming and nothing was every too much. I couldn't recommend a nicer experience in Williamsburg; an interesting, engaging host, a stylish apartment and a decent (quiet) night's sleep. I will definitely be recommending Anne's apartment to female friends travelling on their own and couples.
Extrêmement bien placé, équidistant à 2 mn de l'East River et du ferry, et 2 mn de l'animation de Bedford Ave et du subway ligne L (5 mn de Union Square). Des millions de restaus, terrasses, oysters bars et friperies, bienvenue chez les hipsters ;)
Le loft est superbe, la chambre n'est pas très grande et fermée par une porte coulissante, mais ce n'est pas bruyant du tout. Et Anne est adorable.
Dans l'absolu on a trouvé ça un peu cher, mais c'est New York !
Anne was a great host, with a comfortable apartment close to all the action on Bedford and weekend activities at the East River Park around the corner. Also a quick walk to the L train into Manhattan and the East River Ferry which is a perfect way to visit the Brooklyn Bridge Park.
Anne was a fabulous host and we had such a pleasant experience! Her apartment is amazing and provides a good amount of privacy. It's in a perfect location and very quite and clean. We really loved getting to know Anne but wish we could have spent more time together. I will definitely stay with her again when I need a place and recommend to anyone.
