The Space

This stunning apartment is located in one of the most desirable locations in NYC at McCarren Park facing the Williamsburg waterfront on the East River enjoying spectacular views of the city spanning from Lower Manhattan all the way up to the Queens Borough Bridge. This contemporary corner apt is covered with knee to ceiling windows, with rich, wide-plank American walnut floors, custom designed kitchen with sub-zero fridge, viking ovens, chrome hardware, marble countertops with pure crystal white backsplash and a host of sleek appliances. Baths are framed by custom tiling, contemporary chrome fixtures and a frameless glass-enclosed shower with rain head and separate soaking tub.

  • The tagline is totally right - it was a fantastic view of the city - SO GLAD WE STAYED THERE vs MANHATTAN. Every amenity was available - parking was great - subway was close - neighborhood was super safe. Would definitely stay here again.

  • Our stay at Fabio's amazing apartment was awesome. Nothing but good things to say about this place and the experience with Fabio. The view is worth the stay alone.

  • Great location in Williamsburg, with a commanding view of the Manhattan skyline. Very comfortable space, host was easy to work with.

  • Fabio and his place are amazing. Wonderful experience- don't know why anyone would stay elsewhere.

  • I stayed at Fabio's apartment for the New Year period and had the most amazing time. I could see all of Manhattan from the living room and everything in the apartment was in working order. Fabio was a prompt communicator and Bruna was very friendly and helpful when exchanging the keys. I had read the previous reviews about the doorman and met him once when we first arrived, he was pleasant enough, but we used the basement entrance for the rest of the stay. My only suggestion is to replace the blinds in the master bedroom, not such a problem in the winter but they would be a little irritating in the summer months. Williamsburg is a fab little town and my vegan friend was in heaven as there are vegan food stores a plenty.

  • Appartement agréable avec superbe vue sur Manhattan, conforme à l'annonce et répondant à nos attentes, qui nous a permis de passer Noël en famille dans les meilleures conditions.

  • Our stay was fabulous! The view is amazing. My family and I enjoyed having such a lovely large apartment to stay in rather than a cramped hotel room. The park across the street is perfect for morning jogs or strolls. There was also ice-skating. Great coffee shops, restaurants, bars and gourmet grocery stores very close by. I would definitely recommend this place. There were a few scuffs and marks on the furniture, window treatments and floors but nothing too major. Otherwise, it was pretty clean.

  • The apartment is very large and does have a great view of NYC skyline. However, the apartment was filthy. There are stains in all the couches and beds. The kitchen was dirty and the floors and bathrooms were dirty as well. The owner is in some fight with the building and the bellman told us that we were not allowed to ask anything of the building. It was really strange. I would not recommend staying here.

  • Fabio's place is stunning. The view is spectacular and the location nearly perfect. It is a short walk to the L train and only a couple of short stops to either the 4,5,6 or 1,2,3 lines to get anywhere in Manhattan. But you might not go to Manhattan at all since Brooklyn is fantastic. Fabio's place is right on the border between Williamsberg and Greenpoint two really great neighborhoods of Brooklyn, and the rest is just a quick subway or better yet bike ride away. The McCarren framer's market is right there at the base of the building on Saturday and is a place you can get wonderful produce, meat and cheeses. The entire experience was delightful. Thank you Fabio gracious host and Bruna his friend who helped with keys etc.

  • I agree, Fabio's almost-top-floor apartment has the most unbelievable view! A full wall of windows in the living room and kitchen provide a stunning Manhattan ambience to the space, including a cozy but well-appointed, heated balcony. The 2 bedrooms in the back oppositely face out to a beautiful southern Brooklyn view, complete with the master bedroom's additional walk-out balcony with sun-lounger. The master also has a beautiful adjoining bathroom where, leaving the door open, you could shower looking across the bedroom to the same view. The apartment's residential neighborhood near North Williamsburg is also ideal -- only 5 min walk to Bedford (L) subway station, which will get you west to Manhattan's 14St/Union Square station in 3 stops (~8 minutes on board). We also experimented with taxis back from Manhattan: after midnight a cab was $28 from Times Square and $38 from Harlem, before tips. Our group didn't mind paying this since staying in Manhattan with these conveniences (and view) would have been at least $800/night. Fabio's apartment is conveniently only 1 block from Khim's natural grocery store (which was open past 1am on a Friday and has ICE, which was a good find since the apartment does not have an ice dispenser), and there is a heap of cute shops and locales on Bedford Ave too. The cleanliness of the apartment was great considering the previous group left around noon and I needed to check in at 2pm the same day -- I'm convinced this is the only reason a couple of the smaller details were overlooked (some stains on the couch's slip cover, unsightly black scuffs on most of the walls and doors, which I wiped down, so no worries now!). I'm sure with more preparation time these items would have been addressed, but we were excited to begin our stay and were not burdened by these details -- everything else certainly made up for it! Note: responding to previous reviewers, Fabio does provide 2 sets of keys now, and if you want to avoid doorman confrontations (not that we experienced any), it's easy to use the ground-level entrance ("B - basement" on the elevator) as opposed to the main lobby up the front stairs. Oh -- and Fabio provided the FLUFFIEST towels, wow! Another great AirBnB experience indeed.

About
I'm from Brazil and I live in NY since 2006. I worked in the financial market for 17 years to reach really one goal: Fund my dreams :-) This apartment in NY is one of my dreams come true. I really love to travel around the world for surfing, snowboarding and tastings of wine and food. Now I'm into the lodging and wellness segments as an entrepeneur, building boutique hostels with a focus on wellness.
