About this listing
Couldn't be better!! My home is on the corner of Bedford Ave and Grand St.. Trendy Central of the Universe!! It is perfectly located to everything: restaurants, bars, live music, coffee houses, shopping, galleries and two new cinemas. NightHawk (you can eat and drink!! while watching a film!) and Williamsburg Cinema (all new movies) .. Drink Absinthe and eat oysters , get cheap and delicious dumplings at Vanessa's , hang with the regulars at IONA Irish Bar.
There is a nice upscale cocktail bar on the ground floor .. the apartment is on the 3rd floor.. (2 floors above the bar) .. I have soundproofed and the music levels will not be so crazy.. Sunday - Wednesday the bar will quiet down around 1 am .. Thursday - Saturday the bar will be open til 4 am but again the music and noise ends around 2 - 3 am ..
also .. the bass of the music will be reduced around 1 am ..
so far the guests in this apartment haven't been affected or complained about any noise / disturbance from the bar .. it's ok .. you can read the reviews from the past year.
plus .. you should plan to go down for a nightcap !!
it's a really nice cocktail bar ..
it's a great spot .....
2 bedroom apartment all to yourself. .. Each bedroom can sleep two ..there are two Queen sized mattresses, lots of light .. lots of space, exposed brick but not working fireplace. Sleeps 4 but not more. Clean linens and towels and professionally cleaned before check in.
The shower has great water pressure.. a necessity in life I believe.
The ceiling in the shower is about 6 ft 2 inches .. so if you are tall .. you may have to skootch down !!! I've noticed that Europeans are very tall!!! The kitchen is fully equipped. free WI-FI. Cable TV . HBO
No Smoking or Candles or Parties, please thanks.
-Trains nearby: L, G, JMZ-Neighborhood: Williamsburg (1 stop from Manhattan) -7 short blocks to the Bedford L Train (subway) 5 min walk down Bedford Ave - will take you to 14th St where you can transfer anywhere.
-10 min walk to JMZ .. will take you to Lower East Side-Waterfront ferry to Manhattan
*if noise isn't a factor, I also have listed the 2nd floor apartment for 140$ .. sleeps 4 as well. this third floor apartment isn't affected by the bass noise of the bar and the 2nd floor is, that's why it's cheaper!!
Interaction with guests
I don't really interact with the guests. If you need something.. I'm there, I live in the building. you get your keys and it's very private..
about a 7 minute walk directly down Bedford Ave to the L train one stop into Brooklyn from Manhattan ..
Other things to note
I suggest earplugs .. I am on a busy corner .. but it's basic NYC noise .. morning deliveries, etc .. also at night .. it is very quiet outside so when there are people walking and talking .. and you aren't used to NYC .. it may bother you .. I have very good windows. But in the summer .. when the ac is in the window.. you can hear stuff.
no smoking or extra guests, no pets. no drugs or parties!!! thanks
I am super lucky to have bought my building in 1997. I love Williamsburg, it's truly my home. I am a welder/artist/metalsmith .. you can see my work all over the neighborhood as you walk around.. Which you will be doing !! there is so much to see and do here. My building is typical Williamsburg two apartments over a storefront. It was built in 1900 and has been renovated many times since. It's not a modern condo building !! but it's sturdy! and it's home..
I love to travel and have been all over the world. Cambodia to Costa Rica.. I spent a semester in Florence in 1988!! I was hooked. I've stayed in youth hostels, BnB's and Luxury Hotel Resorts.. it's all good.
