The Space

This clean, modernly designed apartment in the heart of Prospect Heights is the perfect Brooklyn hangout for a single or couple to staying in Brooklyn. The apartment is on the second floor on a building on a block that has everything: a cool cupcake shop, two great cafes, a trendy lounge, a speakeasy, a wine shop, a taqueria, a thai (email hidden)--just on the block. The neighborhood is the new hot spot in Brooklyn. My apartment faces the street. Some people complain about street noise at night, it does not bother me but I am long time New Yorker. It is close to subways (2,3,4,5, Q) and walking distance to Prospect Park, The Brooklyn Botanical Gardens, Grand Army Plaza, The Brooklyn Public Library. The Q train provides a quick commute to Manhattan (3 stops, 11 minutes), but the pace of the Brooklyn lifestyle is why there are some many young professional and artists in Prospect Heights.

  • Sam's clean, perfectly laid-out apartment in the Prospect Heights nhood of Brooklyn was the highlight of our recent NYC trip — it was a just the place for two people, right on Washington Ave (which we loved), and in the heart of a neighborhood brimming with great restaurants, bars, etc. Sam himself was a perfect host and quick to answer any questions we had. I highly recommend Sam and his place! --Anjula Razdan

  • Sam’s apartment is perfectly located in the heart of Brooklyn, near Prospect Park. Safe, in a living area with a lot of shops, restaurants and indie coffees. The studio is really cosy, ideal for 1 or 2 persons. Sam was really flexible. I recommend it!

  • Sam's place was clean and perfect. We would highly recommend it. Prospect heights has a lot to offer by way of restaurants and shops. A little far from a subway stop but that was to be expected in Brooklyn.

  • We had a very nice stay in Sam's apartment, which is well located in a safe area, close to the subway, convenient stores and nice restaurants.
    The communication with Sam went excellent, he was really helpful (flexibility regarding the check in / check out hours which was great)

    The main drawback is that it is very noisy at night (there's a bar right downstairs and windows are not well isolated)
    The studio was fairly clean but not 100% spotless.
    And a dinette table with a 2nd chair would have been be nice to have...

    Overall, an A and we would not hesitate to stay there again!
    Very pleasant first experience with airBNB!

  • A beautiful apartment in a very good location with lots of little nice restaurants and shops. Sam is a great host. We had a good communication before our arrival and you can find some recommendations for the area in the apartment.

  • My friend and I really enjoyed our stay at Sam's. We were only there for a couple of days but it was quite enjoyable. The apartment was fairly spacious for a studio & Sam really prides himself on keeping it clean and tidy. The apartment is positioned in a friendly neighbourhood and its conveniently located next to some nice eateries. Unfortunately we didn't get to meet him but he arranged for us to pick up our keys at a mutually agreeable destination & was very quick to respond to any of our concerns. Overall our stay was quite pleasant & I would highly recommend it to anyone else.

  • The Sam's apartment is fantastic!
    Well furnished and clean, private and comfortable.
    We were guests for about 25 days and we knew well his neighborhood. In a strategic location, near the subway to reach Manhattan in a few minutes, a few steps from the beautiful Prospect Park, next to the bus stop to explore the trendiest areas of Brooklyn, also reachable by foot.
    Young and dynamic neighborhood, until late at night. The street is full of good restaurants, cafes and clubs.
    I heartily recommend the Sam's apartment for a true experience of new yorker life.
