The Space

Hello Traveler,
I'm an Artist living in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. I share my Classic Artist's Loft with travelers from Airbnb. I am respectful, kind and accommodating. I am seeking the same out of you! This is a fairly large apartment, it's spacious feeling even when everyone is home. I have been very lucky and met amazing people through this service. Much of my furniture was custom made by the artist Jean-Marie Mauclet of JEMA Design and all my lighting is eco-friendly LED's.

You are welcome to stay in my Bright spare bedroom. It accommodates two single travelers. I would prefer to rent this monthly to the right person. The room is sparsely furnished. One Queen size bed, a single lofted bed, table, desk and small couch. The room does have a window, which is nice for the mind! When at home, I tend to hang out in my bedroom on my computer or on the roof when the weather is nice. The weekends can be a bit livelier, but not by much! I will provide clean sheets for your beds and warm blankets if you should need them. The room has plenty of storage space. It is private, comfortable and clean.

My Artist's Loft is located on the top floor on a quiet street in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. This is a very safe and friendly part of Brooklyn to visit. I have a manually operated freight elevator that is off limits but can be used to transport heavy items if you require. I have fantastic roof access with beautiful views of the New York Skyline. Bring your lap top computer and connect to my WiFi. If you sit in the right space you can enjoy the WiFi in the open air on the roof.

The Franklin Av shops, restaurants and bars are just around the corner. The closest Subway station is the Greenpoint Ave G, also in walking distance is the Bedford Ave L and the Vernon Blvd 7. By subway, I am located 25 minutes from Union Square, 26 minutes from Times Square, 30 minutes from Central Park, 38 minutes from Tribeca and 25 minutes from the East Village. The B61 and B43 bus stop is only a block away and very helpful when weather is uncomfortable. JFK is one hour away by public transport and LGA is 25 minutes away by Cab.
I look forward to meeting you. -Lawrence

  • Lawrence is such a great, very organized host. His place is the real deal -- old school Brooklyn artist-style loft... the kind that used to be abundant in north Brooklyn, but are increasingly rare as the old buildings are replaced with new cookie cutter cheap apartments. The view of the city from our room was fantastic and you get full roof access! The street is mostly quiet, yet everything you could need or want, from restaurants, to bars, to groceries, to laundry etc, is all within a short walk.

    The place is NOT some cushy, faux-swank flat with 400 thread count sheets. So if that's what you want then keep looking. But if you want a genuine Brooklyn loft experience, then it's perfect. And while Lawrence is perfectly hip, he is far from the slacker hipster type you might find in comparable spaces elsewhere.

  • Lawrence and the loft were awesome. He gave us perfect instructions to check in and get settled in the loft. Our room was awesome and clean. We had a great view of the city from our room and loft. Nice little walk from subway. Didn't mind the little walk to get to know the neighborhood. We had a wonderful stay and would highly recommend staying here!

  • We enjoyed our time in Lawrence's apartment very much. Great kitchen, record collection and the most powerful shower I have ever experienced. It's also in a great area and Lawrence himself is a pleasure to deal with. Looking forward to the next stay here!

  • We had a great stay at Lawrence's place. The loft is fantastic, it's uniquely furbished and has a cool atmosphere. Our room was pleasant, the view is amazing. Lawrence was very helpful and easy to communicate with. I would definitely come back to stay at his again! :)

  • Lawrence is a really nice guy. Great apartment, great housemates, great area. The view from the roof at night is amazing. Didn't leave Greenpoint once during my stay-there is so much to do and see. Everything is within walking distance of Lawrence's place and there is a subway stop around the corner.

  • Incredibly cool flat, with an amazing roof terrace, would definitely book it again! Just make sure you contact Lawrence in enough time to get instructions on how to get into the flat before you're on the doorstop!

  • Great place, Lawrence was friendly and helpful.
    My 13 year old son and I had a wonderful time.
    We will particularly miss the hooded smurf fleece blanket with the sleeves!
