The house is in Park Slope, arguably the best neighborhood in New York City, at least according to New York Magazine (April 2010). It's a beautiful neighborhood with historic brownstone and limestone row houses.
Park Slope is 20 minutes away from downtown Manhattan, closer to the action than the Upper West Side or the Upper East Side. The subway line F can bring you quickly and easily anywhere in Manhattan, and the "7th Avenue" stop is half a block away from the house.
Also half a block away is the famous Prospect Park which was designed Olmsted and Vaux, right after they finished Central Park. Prospect Park is a wonderful place to picnic, jog, bike (there are 4 in the house) or just relax on pedal boats. In the winter, it's a great place for sledding (sleds provided). Every summer there are world-renowned musicians playing in the Prospect Park Bandshell (free concerts).
On 7th Avenue, you will find a lot stores and restaurants while 5th Avenue is more hip with cool bars and restaurants.
Safety is probably one of the best features of Park Slope, especially when you compare to some of other Brooklyn neighborhoods (Crown Heights, BedSty, etc) or even Manhattan!
It's the perfect place to relax after a hectic day in New York City.
The apartment turned out to be much better even than the photos suggested. We had feared something small and found it spacious for our family of two adults and two teenage girls.
We had a wonderful stay. The subway to Manhattan is a few doors down the street. The Park Slope neighborhood is beautiful. Everything was very relaxed and convenient.
What a terrific place! Me and my 70 year old mother stayed for two days while visiting family. It had everything we needed, was spotless and very comfortable. The F line to Manhattan is on the corner and Prospect Park is just up the street. We will definitely be back next time we're in Brooklyn.
Quiet and comfortable. Stones throw from the subway and a direct shot into Manhattan. Would have liked to explore Brooklyn more, but great stay for a quick business trip!
This was my second time staying at Vero's apartment, this time for 9 nights. I chose this apartment again for the following reasons:
- The F /G trains are on your doorstep taking you to Manhatten in 20 minutes.
- There are restaurants and shops in close proximity to the apartment. Talde is one of my favourites.
- Prospect Park is a stones throw away, which is great for a walk / bike ride or run. On saturdays there is a farmers market.
- BAM Brooklyn Art Museum, a gem of a museum nearby.
- The apartment sleeps 6 and has all the ammenities you need for a comfortable stay. Beds are comfortable.
- communication with Vero was always correct and prompt.
- check in and out was easy. On my departure date I was able to check out later which was great for my afternoon flight.
I will definately return again.
We had a verry fantastic time in the appartment, in Park Slope and NYC! The appartment is verry close to the subway station 7th AV (G/F) only about 1 minute :-) and of corse verry nice. It has everything we needed. Vero and her family were verry friendly and helpful. If we can we will come back sometime.
We stayed for a week, 3 couples, and were positively delighted with the apartment: it is well located, only 2 minutes from the metro stop and 5 minutes from the Park, a nice place with everything needed inside. You can hear the metro at night but it is really quiet for New York. I recommend the place for 4 to 6 persons.
Nous avons séjourné une semaine dans l'appartement, très bien situé, à deux pas du métro et du Parc, quartier très agréable, bien meublé et tout le nécessaire dans l'appartement. Je recommande cet endroit pour 4 à 6 personnes, en plus Veronique parle Français.
