We are in the middle of one of NY's hottest neighborhoods. World class architecture,food, art meets cobble stone streets, tree-lined parks and stunning views of the bridges and lower Manhattan. DUMBO is one of the reasons why Brooklyn is so chin right now.
One of the most charming things about this visually stunning corner in the city is that we are not filled with chain stores. No Victoria's Secret or Barnes+Noble. Like NY neighborhoods used to be -- we have our own bookstores, toy stores, high end fashion, vintage fashion…our own galleries, cafes, chocolatier, coffee-roaster, french bakery and restaurants. The restaurants are very highly rated. Its still a true NY neighborhood compared to Manhattan -- which has unfortunately been taken over by large chains and department stores. The only chain we have is a Starbucks.
We are five minutes from 2 major subway lines, the A/C train and then the F train. We are one stop from Manhattan. We are also a very short stroll from the river taxis and river ferries that run along the East River. And of course there are plenty of cabs available through the day and evening in DUMBO.

My family and I had a wonderful time staying in Karen's apartment. The location of Karen´s apartment was just perfect. Dumbo is nice heighborhood with nice restaurants, perfect croissants, a good grocery store and near the Brooklyn Bridge park from which we had a lovely view of the skyline of Manhattan. It was a short walk to the subway which made getting into Manhattan super easy.
The appartment was perfect! We felt quite at home and had plenty of space. Karen communicated with us asking if everything is go well. She was very helpful during our stay. Her recommendations were great. If you want to visit New York her place is a perfect location. Would absolutely book with her again!
The location of Karen´s apartment was just perfect. Dumbo area is very nice with nice restaurant, the perfect almond croissants, over the top grocery store, bookstores - and of course the Brooklyn Bridge park.
From the beginning of booking process to the minute we left to the airport, Karen always answered all questions very fast and gave nice info on the neighborhood.
The apartment was specious enough for five, although the smaller bedroom bed is not big enough for two tall scandinavians - one of us ended up sleeping downstairs, but it worked out fine. We didn´t get to enjoy the patio due to weather, but it looked nice. Towels and bathrooms were nice, only thing we would have liked to see was soap (she did tell us to bring our own) and some space in the closets for our clothes.
Overall this being our first Air b n´b experience, everything went very smoothly. Karen was flexible on the check out hours and both her and the apartment had a very welcoming feeling. Would absolutely book with her again!
Karen was so accommodating and helpful! She went our her way to make sure we had keys before arrival by stopping by my office to deliver them. She left detailed instructions about her home and its accommodations, which was perfect for 2 new employees who were visiting for orientation. She also checked in twice to make sure our stay was going well.
My friends and I had a wonderful time staying in Karen's apartment. The location was perfect for us. Short walk to the subway which made getting into Manhattan super easy. DUMBO is a great neighborhood with a really nice vibe and excellent views of the city, It had everything we needed within walking distance.
The apartment was everything that we needed. The 4 of us felt quite at home and had plenty of space.
Karen was so easy to communicate with, both in the lead up to our stay and also during our stay. She was very helpful and her recommendations were great.
We hope to come back one day!
Location was great, right under the Brooklyn bridge. Apartment was exactly as described and very comfortable. Karen was a great host and extremely helpful with arranging for key pick-up and responding to our queries! Would strongly recommend this listing.
