About This Listing
Williamsburg, currently one of New York's hippest neighborhoods, is an unlikely amalgam of small houses, warehouses, clubs, coffee shops (LOTS of coffee shops) galleries, new condominiums, dozens of restaurants, a wonderful book shop, bars, performance spaces, a world-class cheese shop, thrift stores, clothing boutiques, and looming remnants of the New York waterfront's industrial past.
Our apartment is on North 7th Street, two and a half blocks from the Bedford Ave stop on the L train, the first stop in Brooklyn and a 5-minute ride from Union Square. It's a half-block from the East River State Park, which has summer concerts and a spectacular view of the Manhattan skyline. An esplanade runs south along the river. From a landing at North 6th Street there’s ferry service to various stops in Manhattan and Brooklyn. There's a running track in nearby McCarren Park and a bike path along Kent Avenue. At the end of our block, every weekend between April and November, there's Smorgasburg: an outdoor artisanal food market where approximately 75 vendors sell both packaged and prepared food, from pulled pork sandwiches to fried anchovies and heavenly donuts (Saturdays). On Sundays, there's the open-air Brooklyn Flea, a mix of booths selling vintage, antique, and handmade goods, as well as food vendors.
We supply sheets and towels.
We don't charge a cleaning fee.
We speak French, German, and Italian.
The apartment has:
* a private entrance through our garden
* two bedrooms with queen-sized beds
* a complete and fully stocked kitchen

Our house rules are straightforward. Please treat the apartment as you would your own home. Please tell us of any problems so that we can fix them as soon as possible. If you smoke, please do it in the garden and please pick up your cigarette butts.

Fine small apartment with a great location in Williamsburg. View of Manhattan skyline outside the door. Plenty of great restaurants as well as the Smorgasburg market (food market, Saturday) next door. Easy access to subway and East River ferries. Smooth check in and check out.
La ubicación del departamento es óptima, en un barrio hermoso, muy cerca del transporte público y de la zona comercial de Williamsburg. El departamento muy amplio, limpio y prolijo, y el anfitrión siempre disponible para cualquier consulta y necesidad que tuvimos.
We enjoyed our stay here. It was perfect for two couples, and the neighborhood was superb. We got excellent information about the neighborhood, places to eat, how to get there, in general, all we needed to know and then some.
Short walk to the L-train that takes you to Manhattan in minutes. Thumbs up!
