About This Listing
Check out all my listings! :-) Please note, I don't accept reservations more than 3 months in advance...
This is a very unique, historic space right on the East River! Available for only a short time until the antique store re-opens; the space has been emptied and converted into a comfortable apartment while still retaining the charm of the boutique.
The Storefront is a lovely & light-filled space on the ground floor of a waterfront rowhouse with a big private garden in Brooklyn's booming Greenpoint Historic District, on the riverfront just north of bustling Williamsburg. Walk to the Bedford "L" subway stop, or just a few blocks to the Greenpoint "G" stop. East River Ferry service (with multiple stops in Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Queens) is 2 blocks from the building, on the India Street waterfront, and many bus lines cross through the area as well. Plenty of restaurants, bars, boutiques, cafes, galleries, banks, gyms, etc all within blocks.
800 completely open interior square feet. This building was a loving & complete gut job from top to bottom, with all new electric and plumbing, but every effort was made to bring historical detailing back to this late 1800s commercial space. The Storefront features beautiful salvaged wood floors and a fantastic mid-1800s tin ceiling that was brought in from an old schoolhouse! You will find a cozy living area, a comfortable Queen-sized bed, a dining area with a basic kitchen (electric 2-burner cooktop, sink & refrigerator), a separate lavatory and an open-space clawfoot tub. (Note: a handshower attachment & hand-made copper ring enclosure have been installed, will update photos ASAP!) You'll also have exclusive use of the 1200 sq ft lovely landscaped garden, a true luxury in the city! WiFi access. There is a window A/C unit and an efficient ceiling fan, and there's generally a nice breeze off the river, too. There is no television in this rental, because you have better things to do here in NYC!
Commercial & residential dead-end street, terminating at Transmitter Park on the East River. Please be aware that this street is both commercial & residential; while the noise level is normal for NYC, this is not a "silent" apartment.
Privacy & comfort await!
*please note: you will have exclusive use of the garden during your visit... depending on the length of your stay, you'll likely be asked to water the plants when the weather is warm... :-)
I have a few listings available in this wonderful neighborhood, if you click on my profile you can check them all out.
Thanks for looking, and we look forward to hosting you in fantastic Greenpoint!
Everything at the Storefront is pretty self-explanatory! I'll ask you to please adhere to local recycling rules, and will provide the proper receptacles.
Check-in is any time after 2pm and check-out is any time before 11am, but I aim to be flexible whenever there aren't other schedules to juggle; let's be in touch directly regarding your timing.
You are more than welcome to have your friends over and I certainly want you to enjoy your stay, but please no big parties & no groups of total strangers :-)
Have a wonderful visit!
Maya's loft is enchanting and cozy, just like the photos, full of vintage details and very well decorated. The garden is a piece of heaven in earth. I arrived in spring and flowers were in bloom, you could smell it form the back door at nights. Bees, birds and squirrels were great company in the patio. There is a park right a few steps of the door that grant access to an amazing concrete and steel pier with Manhattan view. day or night is very relaxing to visit the pier and have a walk to the end and back. The neighborhood is amazing, quiet and familiar. You can find great food anywhere you go, just have to pick your favorite. Prices vary as menus but it's mostly affordable everywhere. I enjoyed every meal and loved the Maya's place and the area.
Eine sehr spezielle und witzige Unterkunft in einem aufstrebenden und noch sehr ursprünglichen Stadtviertel. Hier fühlten wir uns fast ein bisschen als New Yorker. Maya haben wir zwar nicht selbst kennengelernt, aber Sie hat sich um alles bestens gekümmert, um uns den Aufenthalt angenehm und problemlos zu gestalten. Besondere Unterkunft, nicht unbedingt für jeden, aber wer was spezielles erleben möchte in NYC ist hier sehr gut aufgehoben.
Our stay at Maya's place was amazing. The antique shop is truly unique and perfect for a couple. Maya was great with her communication leading up to our stay and even during when we had a few questions. The location is perfect for getting around Brooklyn and close to the station to get into Manhattan if you need to. Will definitely stay here again when we come back to the city. Thanks so much, Maya!
This space is truly unique. Amazing location + charming + comfortable = I will book again.
Great place in a great neighborhood. Very charming and comfortable. Close by to almost everything: groceries, markets, restaurants, cafes, yoga and even a riverside park with a peer to see the sundown over the Manhattan skyline. Loved it. Maya was very helpful and a great communicator.
Cons are details and can be easily solved: a "dancing" table not comfortable to eat or work and lack of cleaning instruments. Bottom line: I would be back if I had the chance.
Another great stay in greenpoint. Such a beautiful space. Maya was as usual easy and quick to communicate with. Already planning our next visit!
Good vibe, location & atmosphere. Maya was a great communicator. Easy process to access the keys. Basic amenities available, we stayed in the fall & the place was toasty warm. Thanks Maya, Yvette & Wayne
