One room studio in South Williamsburg with lots of creative details to keep you amused :-) just 5 blocks from the Williamsburg Bridge for easy city access.
It's a hat making studio!
Please be respectful of the hats on display, take care when trying them on and please return them as they were to the mannequins. All hats are one of a kind or some of a kind and Airbnb guests enjoy a 10% discount should anything suit you well enough for permanent ownership. Contact me for any further questions. (email hidden)
Interaction with Guests
Please refer to my guidebook of the nearest cafes, bars, and restaurants from 1/2 block to 7 block radius from the apt. Thanx!
It's a mixture of Dominicans, Puerto Ricans Hasidic Jewish and creative hipster types all wrapped up into a not completely gentrified package of old and new New York.
M train one block away, bus stop across the street, G train is 3 blocks away, L train to Lorimer St is 7 blocks away, 4 block walk or bike to the Williamsburg Bridge into the Lower East Side. Parking is easily available but check signs for parking restrictions
Directions from Airports
JFK: You can either take a NYC Yellow or NYC Green Taxi to the apt (approx $50 plus tip) or you can take the train. The Air Train out of the airport, to the A train to the Broadway Junction train stop. Then catch the J train to Hewes St. Certain times of the day the J train goes express and surpasses Hewes St. If it does you can do either of 2 things: you can stay on the J train and get off at the next stop, Marcy Ave and walk the extra 4 block to the apt, or you can get off of the J train at Myrtle Ave/Broadway and take the M train local to Hewes St. I would just recommend going to Marcy Ave if the J is going express.
LaGuardia: Take a Yellow or Green Taxi, it's 20 mins from the apt and runs about $25. There is no fast or efficient mass transit option.
Newark: Take the Airport Bus to Port Authority(it's about $15 and runs every 15 mins). From there you can take the A,C or E train lines south to West 4th St and transfer to the M train to Hewes St. It is the 2nd stop on Brooklyn and is frequent and fast.
The apt is one block from the Hewes St stop. There is no bell to ring once you arrive so either call myself or my assistant or if you wont have a mobile phone, just knock gently
on the windows to the left of the door.
Enjoy your stay!
Other Things to Note

No smoking, no pets, please self clean, respect the hats on display, put all used linens in the laundry bin and please dispose of your garbage on the way out, thank you!
Anastasia is a charming hostess. The apartment was comfortable and clean. This is an artist's studio, Anastasia creates hats, perfect to plunge into the atmosphere of the neighborhood! It is located in the south of Williamsburg in a residential area which was quiet. I enjoyed my stay at Anastasia !!!
Anastasia's place is a gem and I couldn't recommend it more. Probably the best value I've come across on Airbnb. Clean, interesting and located in an ideal part of Brooklyn. The whole experience was a seamless one. We'll be back!
Anastasia was absolutely amazing and accommodating, especially since we booked in such short notice. Her place was spacious and pristine in terms of cleanliness! She was warm and welcoming to us and extremely easy going when she greeted us upon arrival! Would definitely stay at Anastasia's place in the near future. And we can't thank her enough for her hospitality!
Great apartment at super location in Williamsburg. Somewhat noisy, but that is part of the experience living in a vibrant neighbourhood.
It was a bliss getting the keys and Anastasia was really helpful and welcoming. Recommendable place to stay in NYC!
This was our first experience with airbnb and I cannot express enough in words our gratitude for Anastasia. We were navigating through the city in the pouring rain, she was helpful from the time we got off the plane to the time we left. She met us there with the keys to the apt, and had all kinds of suggestions for things to do/where to eat both in the neighborhood and Manhattan and exactly how to get there . The place is great, clean, cool, spacious and easy to get to and from Manhattan on the train. I would definitely recommend as it was like having a friend in a foreign city. After a cold and rainy weekend with lots of hurdles she even helped us get to a spa in the area which truly came as such an appreciated gift of relaxation when we needed it. Would definitely come again!
Comfy, cozy and cool space! We really enjoyed staying in Anastasia's apartment / work space. Being surrounded by her beautiful hats and other artwork was a great experience. The apartment is in a super convenient and safe location, with easy street parking.
The apartment was very clean and well appointed. The bed is a fold-down sofa with a memory foam mattress that is very comfy, and my 5'10" GF and 6'2" Self slept just fine for four nights.
Anastasia was great in helping us out with everything we needed.
Highly recomend the place and will stay there again!!
Anastasia's apartment was perfect for my stay. The studio is nice and the futon is comfortable once you add the foam top. The location is good - it does get slightly noisy at times from street traffic, but that's normal for NYC. Her hats are wonderful too!
