About This Listing
A comfortable, fun 1BR with two balconies and a rooftop with skyline views. It's close to the nightlife of Williamsburg and many transportation options, yet its peaceful and quiet. THIS IS AN UNFURNISHED SUBLET.
UPDATE: This apartment will be unfurnished starting June 1st, 2015 and is being offered as a sublet. You will be responsible for all utilities.
Sunny fun in Williamsburg! A great, conveniently located apartment for long stays, dinner parties, and all around fun in NYC's most vibrant and exciting neighborhood.
- Air conditioning/heating
- Two balconies and an amazing rooftop
- Building laundry room
- In-building gym
- Great kitchen for cooking, etc.
Williamsburg is the most exciting place in NYC these days: the best restaurants, nightlife for anyone's tastes, edgy theater, funky galleries, and all varieties of live music all over the place. My spot is convenient to all of that, yet the spot is quiet and safe.
J/M/Z, G, L trains are all convenient, plus buses to nearby parts of Williamsburg and remarkably easy street parking (though be mindful of alternate side parking restrictions).
Other Things to Note
There's one ugly building nearby that blots out part of the skyline. It's only fair to mention that. You still get a lot more sunshine and a grander view than almost anywhere else in Williamsburg that isn't on the river.
I am trying to sublet this apartment-- once you're paying the rent, it's basically yours, just don't destroy it.
Nice big fridge, microwave, oven, gas range, dishwasher, nice big sink. NOTE: APPLIANCES WILL BE REMOVED
Ben's place is so comfortable and homely. We loved it! The rooftop and gym were definite deal breakers! The view was gorgeous and the sound system was amazing, not to mention the massive projector screen! Would highly recommend it! Hope to stay again!
The apartment has absolutely everything, it was better than what we expected. The location is very close to Manhattan and the train station just a couple of blocks away. Ben makes sure you have everything you might need already there at hand (even museum cards). The only bad thing was that the entrance key of the building changed by the week we arrived and we only had one key for the buildings main door.
Our stay at Ben's place was great - it's even more spacious than the pictures and better in person. Clean, modern, with lots of amenities like the gym, laundry, and roof deck all in-building. The apartment was well-located nearby public transportation and had plenty of spaces on the street for our car. Communication with Ben was quick and easy. Would definitely stay again!
About the Host, Benjamin

As a host I will try to ensure you have a great stay in a clean apartment. As a guest I will do my best to keep your apartment in the same (or better) condition it was in when I arrived.
