About this listing
When you want to briefly live like a local in Brooklyn, you stay here.
Enjoy one of brownstone Brooklyn's finest neighborhoods in our spacious one-bedroom apartment. The architecture is very easy on the eyes and the food will have you ready to transfer everything you belong to Brooklyn (it did for us!). We're a two minute walk away from the busy Dekalb Avenue full of NYC restaurant gems. The BAM (Brooklyn Academy of Music) and Fort Greene Park are each around ten minute walk. Pratt University is a five minute walk. Barclay's Center is about a 10 minute walk as well. There's tons to do and plenty to eat around these parts.
TRANSPORTATION/METRO: The G train is on our our block. The C is about a 5 minute walk and will take you into Manhattan (G to the L might be quicker!). The B and D are a 10-15 minute walk and are express trains to Manhattan. Walk to Barclay's Center (15 minutes) for lines RND2345B7Q. Taxis are easy to get and cost around $20 to downtown Manhattan. NEW: There are three CitiBike stations within two blocks.
WARNING: This is a four-story walkup!!
WEEKEND BONUS: The Brooklyn Flea (Saturdays) is a block away and offers an amazing array of food vendors (lobster rolls, Korean hotdogs, fresh oysters, Dough doughnuts & more) to go along with a fine collection of overpriced used goods and decent clothing options. (from March until Thanksgiving)
AMENITIES: Futon: sleeps two. King size bed can fit 3! Parking = street, but easy. WIFI = included. Flatscreen with Apple TV. Air conditioning = yes.
