Ditmas ParkRuns from Beverly Road to the north, Foster Avenue to the south, Ocean Avenue to the east and Coney Island Avenue to the west.
Ditmas Park has one of the largest collections of Victorian houses in the nation, and many of them are large, with multiple bedrooms, porches, and garages, and full of stunning details. That’s because these Ditmas Park homes were originally built for the likes of the Guggenheims, and film stars like Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks.
This landmarked district, however, also contains other styles of houses: Colonial Revival houses, Tudors, and even Swiss Chalets line the wide, tree-lined streets of Ditmas Park, which often have English-sounding names like Marlborough and Stratford. (The Ditmas Park neighborhood is actually named for the Van Ditmarsen family, who were 17th-Century sheep farmers.) Co-ops are available, some with eat-in kitchens and shared garden access. Adding to the country feel of the Ditmas Park neighborhood are apple, peach, cherry and pear trees.
But Ditmas Park — which New York magazine called “the New San Francisco” — is definitely not the suburbs. There are great restaurants, notably The Farm on Adderley, which serves delicious American Nouveau cuisine. Cortelyou Road is the major shopping street, with a greenmarket that’s held every Sunday, and Newkirk Plaza, an open-air mall of 30 retailers which offers everything from doughnuts to medical supplies for sale, recently underwent a million-dollar facelift. For books and bohemia, hit Vox Pop, a bookstore/performance space/community gathering place which offers an open mic every Sunday night.
Armel is a very nice person and he was very punctual and efficient when he welcomed us and came to pick up the keys (we stayed 8 nights). The neighborhood is also nice and seems safe. Newkirk Plaza subway station is at most 10 minutes by walking. During the day it takes about 40 minutes from Newkirk Plaza to get to downtown (during the night it takes longer). However, the apartment suffers from same drawbacks: first, it is very dark. Even in a sunny day you need to switch on the light, because all windows open on an small internal courtyard with scarce illumination. Second, the centralized heating system is really very bad: the apartment was exceedingly hot even when, following Armel’s suggestion, we operated the air-conditioning system to contrast the heat. Third, the apartment had been cleaned but it was not as clean as we might have wanted. Fourth: Armel can provide the guests with just one key. I was with my wife and we had different schedule, so it was not possible to go home independently. Having said this, we paid a little less than 800 dollars for 8 nights. Although this is not small money in absolute, it is harder to find less than that in New York City. So, the apartment is still a good compromise between quality and budget constraints.

We felt really comfortable in Armel's place. The appartment fully complied with the description - clean and spacious, in a nice safe neighbourhood, I actually think that it looks better in reality! Regarding issues mentioned in other reviews - we didn't have any problems with the heat both air conditiones worked fine, also we found the water pressure in the bathroom completely normal. The wifi and large TV were a nice improvement of our stay.
The bulding is a clean and very quiet, all neighbours we met were friendly. A supermarket, few restaurants and metro station are literally two blocks away, trains come quite often so no worries there.
Armel as a host was perfect - very friendly, helpful and communication was perfect - quick responses and to the point. He welcomed as on time, helped me with luggage and prepared a bowl of fruit, bread, water and orange juice for us. He explained everything patiently and on our last day when we were leaving he called a taxi for us.
I would definitely recommend Armel's appartment to anyone.
Our stay in Armel s apartment was great. It is located in a very nice and safe area, 200 meters from subway station Newkir Plaza (B,Q lines) and from Supermarket. The apartment is very comfortable and no problem with hot weather because of the A/C.
Also, Armel was a great Host , welcoming us with juice and fruits and explaning all the details.
It was a excellent experience. I would definitely come back to Armel s apartment. Thanks Armel !!
Stayed for 2 weeks at Armel's place and it was fantastic. The place itself is big and clean and the neighborhood was great. Never felt unsafe walking around. The big TV did not hurt either. :)
If you want to go to Manhattan, the subway is in 5 mins walking distance and brings you to Times Square in about 40 mins. But I would recommend exploring Brooklyn at least once during your stay.
Armel was a great and accommodating host, who made sure that everything was ok. Will definitely contact him for the next stay.
Big and clean place to stay. Neighbors were very friendly and having laundry in building is amazing. Armel was a great host and took very good care of me. I will stay here again.
