About this listing
We are a 20 minute subway ride from Manhattan. Exposed brick walls, hardwood floors, high ceilings, granite countertops and cherrywood cabinetry, what more could you want for your vacation in NYC?! This typical Brooklyn townhouse is nestled in a row of similar buildings on a charming street near Cooper Street and Irving Avenue in Bushwick, one of Brooklyn's up and coming neighborhoods. Just off the L line, this accommodation has been restored and modernized, but traces still remain that hint at its prewar construction (1906!).
Like many townhouses in New York, this apartment has two entrances, one into the main foyer and living room of the apartment, and one that goes directly into a bedroom, increasing privacy for guests. While both bedrooms are connected via a door, they also can be accessed independently. The rooms are both simply furnished with cast iron beds - a double and a single in each allows for a variety of sleeping options. The living room also has two convertible double size sofa beds to accommodate additional guests. The kitchen and dining area are completely open to the living room, allowing for you to have some pleasant conversation with your roommates while cooking dinner or watching some of the cable television. Wireless Internet access is also available, ideal to help you plan your days in the Big Apple. Throughout the apartment, the blond wood floors and cherry red brick wall are highlighted by the light that comes in through the windows into each room, including the bathroom.
Step outside the door of this townhouse and you'll find yourself in Bushwick, a part of central Brooklyn that is becoming more and more popular, and is conveniently located off the L subway line, which leads into Manhattan though the trendy Williamsburg area. You have the Wilson stop about 3 blocks away, and the Halsey station on Wyckoff Avenue is just 4 short blocks from this Beautiful accommodation. Though largely residential, there are some restaurants and shops on Cooper Street and Wyckoff and Wilson Avenues, including the infamous Brooklyn pizza. Try a slice at Jimmy's Pizza Shop to compare with the innumerable other pizzerias you are sure to try on your trip to New York. If you take the train just 3 or 4 subway stops east, you will find yourself in a hipster-haven, with fun bars and the New York Times favorite, Roberta's pizza off of the Morgan stop, not to be missed! A few stops further and you'll be in Williamsburg, a great place for shopping and catching live music at one of the countless venues. Stay on the train and you'll soon be in Union Square, home to the year-round Green Market, Forever 21, Whole Foods, and the entire transit hub that will take you around the rest of Manhattan
