About this listing
I'm renting out my loft.
It's a huge space, right by the L train stop (it take 10 second to walk to the subway!). The view from the windows is amazing. You can see a manhattan and it looks like a postcard. The space it self is very big, nice kitchen and bathroom.
Two private rooms with queen size beds, as well as a single futon and a queen size air mattress. Total of 4 beds that can sleep 6-7 people. You will get clean sheets and towels. Also, for your entertainment: sounds system with Airplay (connect iphone/ ipod wirelessly), video projector with free Netflix and Hulu plus!
The area is super cool. Lots of places to eat. drink and to hang out. Huge organic market , cute cafe, great Zagat rated restaurant, fantastic Mexican place- everything that you need a block away! Post office, supermarket, and a hospital down the street.
It's super easy to get to the city. The subway stop is right across the street, about 10 seconds walk from the building and the L train runs every 3-6 min. It takes around 13 minutes to get to Union Square.
If you like scenic NYC, you must check out the rooftop with a view to die for. Really.
All and all I just want you to enjoy your stay, and I'll do everything that I can to ensure that, but I do ask of guests to follow some common sense rules:
- Please no extremely loud music.
- Please notify me if the number of guests has changed.
- Please respect my neighbor's privacy
the place is located in the middle of brooklyn with a subway station right infront of the house, which is pretty cool. so is the rooftop, from which you can see whole of manhattan. unfortunately the appartment itself is very rundown, many things are broken (hairdryer, lamps) and the air condition made it impossible to sleep when turned on because it was so loud. sorry to say that the pictures posted on airbnb must be many years old... but hey, there is always room for improvement!
We hebben genoten van het appartement. Bushwick is een levendige hippe buurt met restaurants, bars, winkels en mooie graffiti. De metro is heel dichtbij. Omdat het erg warm weer was, was het in de huiskamer te warm. De slaapkamers met de airconditioning waren prima. Alles dat we nodig hadden, was er. Het uitzicht vanaf het dakterras is geweldig.
The neighberhood is great -there are a lot of cool places. Itamar wrote them perfectly down in his manual. we tryed most of his suggestions and they were great. Thank you Itamar! It is very convenient to go to town with the L Train
The rooftop is wonderful we used it for breakfast.
A great Yogastudio is directly on other side of the street.also suggested by Itamar.
The Appartement has a lot of space-but you should be a little adventorous and better arrive by daytime when sombody can give you the keys and introduce you to the appartement.
Otherwise we liked it and would go back!
Great location! Literally 10 steps from subway station, terrance view is breathtaking and overall building and neighborhood are awesome! I would take into consideration that appartment is not very clean and poorly mantained, besides that, is a great choice!
Our stay at Itamar's loft was good and the flat itself is brilliant! The loft was an amazing base to explore from and felt very homely - the kitchen was great and we had breakfast and dinner in the flat frequently. We loved the quirky decor and access into Manhattan was very easy. It was incredibly hot and stuffy but that is to be expected anywhere in summer that doesn't have aircon.
Communication could have been improved on and I was concerned about checking in - I had tried to contact Itamar in the 2 weeks leading up to our stay but hadn't received a reply to confirm the check in process. However, when I arrived at the flat his housekeeper was expecting me and the process was smooth. There were some problems with the speakers on the projector which unfortunately meant we weren't able to use it, but we didn't spend many evenings in the flat anyway. Finally, it's worth noting that there is NO LIFT in the building and the flat is on the 4th floor, so it was difficult carrying heavy cases up 3 flights of stairs.
Overall, it was a great place to stay and it was in a fun, safe part of town - though it can be noisy at weekends, so bring ear plugs if this bothers you!
Itamar was very responsive and kind. Anytime there was any question of how to do something or get something, he immediately responded, this made trouble shooting very easy. The location could not be a better one. Perfect for hopping into Manhattan for the day and coming home to a calm space.
But that doesn't mean the neighborhood isn't awesome! 24/7 grocery across the street, lots of bars and restaurants, plus the subway directly across the street, it was an amazing place to stay.
The building and apartment are certainly industrial feeling, but I thought that was great. Two private bedrooms with doors plus a futon and blowup mattress, it certainly fit our party of 3 very comfortably. Kitchen had everything you needed to cook, which was nice. We typically cooked every morning. Plus, the rooftop is killer!
The overall expereince was great! We stayed for about 5 days and loved it.
