Williamsburg is by far the most popular neighborhood in brooklyn with loads of awesome bars, music venues, shops, cafe's and restaurants. The waterfront (east river park) is my personal favorite.
There are 2 subway stations both in equal walking distance as well as 2 bus stops just one block away.
Other Things to Note
The buzzer doesn't work from downstairs so you'll have to call my phone in order for me to open the down stairs door for you. It works from upstairs.
no shoes on in the apartment.
clean up after yourself.
my bedroom is off limits.
Smoking is permitted, I do smoke so if you're not ok with the smell you might not be a good fit.
I really liked Francis's place, and Francis is a really nice host, easy to communicate with and was very accommodating for my times coming in and out of the place.
Francis's cat, King Tubby, is the FRIENDLIEST cat I've ever seen, really loved having him around too.
The flat's location is really great, so close to many great bars and restaurants in this very hip neighborhood is and very close to the Williamsburg bridge. Make sure to walk or run across it when you go.
The flat had a very relaxed feel to it, which I appreciated. Didn't feel like I needed to tiptoe around the place.
Francis was a great host. Really easy to get the key, awesome place to stay with very cool decor and art everywhere. It was close to everywhere that I needed to be with loads of great places to eat and drink around.
Nice little apartment in Williamsburg, great location just off of Bedford and down the street from lots of bars and live music. Francis was a great host, the place was clean, and the cat was very friendly. I would definitely recommend to a friend!
Ce fut un superbe sejour à Williamsburg, chez Francis. Je recommande cette adresse pour quiconque souhette decouvrir Brooklyn.
Great spot, very cozy. Francis was super nice and always helpful and accommodating. The secondary host, King Tubby, was super cute and always visited us. We will definitely stay with Francis again next time we visit Brooklyn. This place is just blocks from the train, cool bars and restaurants, as well as a 24 hour market. Definitely stay here!
He was a great host. His apartment is super cool and he was out most of the time, so I didn't see him too much. He was super accommodating when I needed to stay a bit longer for some housing problems.
About the Host, Francis
I am a laid back 33 year old Japanese/American male from Honolulu Hawaii that owns a kitten named King Tubby. My life revolves around music and NYC nightlife. I dj/throw parties as often as possible (usually 2 or 3 times a month). I'm super easy to get along with, tolerant and respect one's personal space very much.
-your friend in brooklyn. Francis :)
