Mid-Century Modern on Main sleeps 5

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Main St, Brooklyn, NY 11201, United States

The Space

2 bedroom, 1.5 bath Mid-Century Modern home on Main Street in the heart of DUMBO. 1000 feet from the Brooklyn Bridge, family friendly historic neighborhood right along the cool, relaxing water. Great space and setting to explore NYC!

Outdoor terrace for dining al-fresco. Cathedral ceilings in loft-like great room. Full entertainment, WIFi and office. Master bedroom has a queen and 1/2 bath. Smaller bedroom has a full-size bed. Day bed for 5th guest in living room. High quality sheets and linens, designer furniture for comfortable, luxury living in DUMBO.

Public transport 5 minutes walk. Next subway stop is Manhattan.

The neighborhood is considered one of the hot neighborhoods in NYC right now. Galleries and cafes, gorgeous parks, unbeatable views, outdoor movies, excellent restaurants such as Vinegar Hill House, River Cafe, Gran Electrica and famous Grimaldi's Pizza...not to mention Jacques Torres Chocolatier and Almondine (with the best almond croissants this side of Paris)-- all within one stop of the island of Manhattan. A true respite from the busy city, but with a cool, historic cobble-stoned street vibe itself.

Local theater and music include St. Anne's Warehouse, BAM, River Barge Chamber Music, Galapagos Art Space, PowerHouse Books and ReBar. DUMBO is also home to many startups and design firms, including ETSY. There seems to always be something to stop in and check out.

DUMBO is one of the reasons Brooklyn has made a resurgence.

Portable crib available.

Thanks for looking at our listing and we look forward to welcoming you to DUMBO!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • My in-laws and I stayed in this apartment for nearly two weeks and it was a great apartment. The location was amazing in DUMBO, and there were so many fun restaurants and shops nearby. The space was great in this apartment, with an awesome open floorplan downstairs. The only negatives were that there were a number of lightbulbs out, some of the kitchen cabinets were a bit disorganized, and there was a leaky faucet, but those are things that are easily changed. We had a blast, and the place was great for us. Thanks so much Karen for a cool NY stay!

    Response from Karen:

    Hi Nancy, thanks for the heads up regarding the light bulbs and faucet. Had you told me there was a leak, I would have gladly sent someone to change it. But overall thanks for the visit!

  • L'appartement de Karen est très agréable pour une famille qui vient visiter New York. Nous avons passe un magnifique séjour et découvert un quartier de Brooklyn très agréable et très bien desservi par le métro.

  • Loved this apartment! Was in a great location, near to the subway and walk the Brooklyn bridge. Also starbucks in corner and great sushi place downstairs. Highly recommended!

  • This is a really nice spacious apartment with all you need and right on the doorstep of Manhattan. It was a five minute walk to two different subway stations, and then only one stop to Manhattan, and a short trip to the main spots such as Times Square. It's in a great little area of Brooklyn with nice local shops, cafes and bars. The view from the edge of the water, 20 seconds walk from the front door can't be beat! Karen was a great communicator, with quick responses to my queries. I would recommend staying here.

  • Karen is an amazing host, and her apartment is beautiful- with a very strategic location in the wonderful DUMBO. The apartment has everything you need, including some great recommendations for area dining and activities. I would highly recommend staying here. (Love the Art in the apartment too!)

  • Karen was a great host. The apartment is nice and comfortable. With an excellent location (Dunbo is a beautiful and trendy neighborhood). 100% recommendable.

  • Karen was a wonderful host. Quick to respond to all questions and accommodating of our schedule. Her place is very comfortable and in a great location. We could hear folks in the unit above into the wee hours of the morning on both nights, but earplugs took care of that problem. An eye pillow might be a good idea too if you like it really dark at night. The big modern widows don't have curtains, which is very cool but lets in city lights.

    I would definitely stay with Karen again!

  • Appartement très bien situé, quartier sûr, agréable et animé. Le petit parc sur l'East River à deux minutes de marche, offre une vue spectaculaire sur Manhattan au pied du Brooklyn Bridge.
    Métro à 5 minutes de marche dans les rues animées du quartier.
    Appartement lumineux, confortable et décoré avec goût et très accueillant ; cependant un peu bruyant.
    Karen a été très disponible pour répondre rapidement à toutes nos questions. Karen est une hôte très attentionnée.
    Bref, nous recommandons vivement cet appartement pour passer un séjour aussi agréable que le notre.
