The Space

You've probably heard by now that Bushwick is the next Williamsburg and this apartment is 10 minute walking distance to the center of all the action. The sun-filled bedroom you are inquiring about has its window going to a quiet backyard belonging to the property.
The 3 bedroom apartment is seated right off the L&M train with tons of grocery stores, hip bars, new restaurants, and art galleries steps away. This unique apartment has 3 sunny bedrooms, 2 full baths, a beautiful kitchen with spacious countertops, 12ft ceilings, and very spacious closets. Also the apartment faces south so you get lots of light all day.

The L&M train at the Wyckoff&Myrtle stop is literally right around the corner which makes a commute to the city approximately 15 minutes. You have many food and dining options from organic grocery stores to 5 star restaurants and bars.

The New York Times had recently an article featuring Bushwick as the neighborhood to be in -- please feel free to read online:

ART REVIEW, June 7, 2012
"The Latest Vibe Moved to Brooklyn"

Also Bushwick is called New York's new Soho by Artnews:
A Scene Grows in Brooklyn
BY Carolina A. Miranda POSTED 01/24/12
"Artists by the hundreds have been flocking to Bushwick, a working-class neighborhood just east of trendy Williamsburg. Curators, collectors, and dealers are following."

Also a great piece on restaurants in Bushwick by the NY Daily News on February 23, 2014:
"Bushwick is becoming a foodie haven"
and by the New York Magazine listing some of the recently opened bars in Bushwick on May 4th 2014: "The Bushwick Barsplosion"

Last not least not only Lonely Planet is featuring Bushwick the destination for a NYC greatest outdoor graffiti collection, but also the New York Times has recently published on May 3, 2013 the following arcticle: "Bushwick Gets a Fresh Coat: A Son of Bushwick Turns the Neighborhood Into a Gallery for Street Art"

About the room:
There is a comfy queen size bed, an in-built closet and a desk so you can use the Internet, watch movies, listen to music or work as needed as the whole apartment has high speed WiFi. The private bedroom can accommodate 2 people.

The main floor is an open plan living room/ kitchen, and fully available for you: guests will have use of a completely functional and spacious kitchen with all new appliances. The entire apartment has great light and new hardwood floors.

Bikes can be rented from a local shop less than one block from our house. I also have two bikes which you can rent for $15 per day.

  • Marc hosted me for 8 weeks while I was on internship in the city this summer. During my long stay I began to feel very at home, both Marc and Sascha were very hospitable and friendly, and they did what they could to make me comfortable. The neighbors are friendly and the subway stop is very close. I had a great stay here, thanks so much!

  • Marc was very friendly, and helpful in recommending things to do in NYC. His apartment was clean and had a nice atmosphere. The neighborhood was not very attractive, and not somewhere I would be comfortable walking around at night, but I spent most of my time in other parts of the city and the Metro was very close.

  • Marc and his roommate were very nice with us, they both gave us directions to move around New York and gave us a map of the city. The room is really comfortable, they also offered us the kitchen in case we wanted to cook. I definitely recommend staying at his place; besides, it is very easy to get there.

  • The stay was great, the area is pretty safe, even if it doesn'tlook like. We returned couple of times after midnight and everything was ok. The room is very quiet and everything is clean.
    We didn't get to meet with Marc but his roommate Sasha gave us advices where to go and what to see.
    Not far from subway like 3-5minutes, depending how you walk.
    I recommendt this place for exploring New York.

  • The area isn't great but the apartment was really nice and spacious. And they made us feel right at home!

    May 2012
  • Marc was very helpful as he was there to open us the door when we arrived the first day on a Friday afternoon. Marc's roommate is also a very nice guy.The only thing we would have wished would be warmer blankets but it's just a detail and my friend and I highly recommend Marc as a host.
