Clean, bright, cozy room in a beautiful, funky, artistic apartment. Clean linen, bedding, and towels are included.
The bedroom has a lot of storage, with a large closet, 6-drawer dresser, and bookcase to house your belongings. The apartment has a comfy couch, a large TV, and high-speed wireless internet. You are welcome to take advantage of the fully stocked and supplied kitchen, with fridge, stove, microwave, and toaster.
The real selling point of this apartment is the neighborhood. 10 minutes from Manhattan, you feel like you’re in a different city. Located at the intersection of Cobble Hill, Boerum Hill, Brooklyn Heights and Carroll Gardens, you are steps away from an endless supply of great food, fantastic shopping, and amazing people. Smith St. is known for its restaurants, and it does not disappoint. Also within walking distance are BAM, DUMBO, Red Hook (amazing views of the Statue of Liberty), the Promenade, and (last but definitely not least) the Brooklyn Bridge. This area is known for attracting celebrity residents, and you will quickly understand why.
The F and G trains are less than 5 minutes away (Bergen Street station), and the 2/3/4/5/N/R trains are a couple of blocks further at the Court St/Borough Hall station. Manhattan is as few as three stops and 10 minutes away. Cabs are also readily available at all hours. If you have a car there is a good amount of on street parking in the area, and several parking lots are close-by. JFK Airport is just over an hour away by AirTrain and Subway.
A few more notes on the apartment:
- No Smoking
- No Pets (I’m allergic)
- The Apartment is a 3rd-floor walk-up, so there are two flights of stairs to get to the apartment.
- Depending on the length of your stay, an additional charge for a cleaning service may be added (I will let you know when you make your reservation).
- There may be room to accommodate 1 or 2 additional people for very short stays (Please contact me for more information).
Cy is a wonderfull host and very easy to communicate with. Her flat in Brooklyn is cozy and very (website hidden) is a graphic designer by profession which clearly shows in the awesome decoration of the living room. I highly recommend the place.
I had a very good stay for 3 weeks in October. The location was perfect for a short commute to downtown manhatten (less than 20m by subway). The room is right between smith st, court st and atlantic avenue. So lots of things right around the corner (gym, food, bars, trader joes, etc.). The room and apartment condition is solid - typical NY style. I would certainly stay again - thanks to Cy for the great time I had!
Highly recommended. Perfect location. Apartment is typical NY old school - nice laminate on the floor, well maintained and superb decoration in the (website hidden) is a perfect room-mate - sympathetic understanding and always willing to help - now turned into a friend! So next time you go to NY - 1. enjoy living like a New Yorker in a typical NY apartment - 2. enjoy the company of a nice lady, always willing to help (arranged a cab for me etc.) 3. save money... You d be crazy to spend more money in a tasteless hotel! Definitely worth the experience.
Cy seemed like an amazing person, unfortunately we were both very busy this week and didn't get a chance to hang out. The location couldn't have been better. Smith st. and Atlantic Ave are right there, and most trains are within a ten minute walk. The bed was clean and comfy, and I could tell that Cy took great care to make sure that the place was clean and tidy.
My first night at Cy's place was also my first night in NY and I felt at home the moment I entered the appartment. Plus the neighborhood is lovely and trendy, 5 minutes away by walk to the train to Manhattan, 10 minutes to Bklyn promenade, and 15min to Dumbo.
I would recommend Cy's place to anyone !
I stayed with CY for a little over a month. The place was great and CY is a wonderfully chill host. The apartment is extremely convenient and great for anyone who wants to experience the awesomeness of brooklyn.
Stayed with Cy for over a month and would do it again anytime! The room was just as she has described it in her listing. She keeps the apartment very clean. Awesome TV in the living room. The best part about the apartment is its location. Every cuisine conceivable is available on Smith and Court streets which are both around the block from the apartment. If you want to venture further, there is easy access to almost every subway (website hidden) is laid back, friendly and accommodating. This is the perfect place for both short term and long term visitors. Thanks a lot Cy for a great stay!
Cy was a gracious and friendly host. The apartment in an extremely convenient location for exploring the best parts of Brooklyn and Manhattan. There is construction going on across the street so it may not be the best for someone who would like to sleep late on weekdays, but otherwise you cannot beat the location or value.
Location: 5 mins walk to the nearest subway and you'll get into Manhattan (say Union Square) in just 15 mins. Very convenient and handy, we absolutely love it
Area: safe, hip and cool. Many nice cafes, bars and shops on Smith Street, which is literally just around the corner
Room and apartment: very clean and comfortable. The room is quite large and bed is super comfy. Bathroom has the best hot shower
Host: Cy is fantastic - prompt communication, warm, friendly and helpful. We are so delighted to have stayed with her. Thanks Cy
Highly recommended to anyone looking for a great place to stay in NY
I really enjoyed staying here. The apartment was definitely clean and Cy made sure we had everything we needed. It's in a great location and convenient to almost every subway line.
