Stay in our large and just homemade-enough loft apartment in Boerum Hill, one of the most convenient and lively neighborhoods in Brooklyn.
We’ve got handmade furniture, found art, custom lights, a lofted bathroom, a projector and of course, plenty of plants. But our 1,000 square-foot, open floor plan, well-lit apartment with courtyard views also features plenty of regular amenities.
* a common area with large living space, sectional couch and converted church pew bench
* a well-stocked kitchen
*an unconventional , but in the best way, bathroom. The elevated toilet (steps included) is more like a throne and the shower features an eye level window to the apartment. Close it off if you are shy or keep an eye on your boiling pot in the kitchen.
* a projector for watching movies on the wall
* an apartment full of homemade furniture and art that we've found on the streets of NYC
* an awesome roommate
* the most convenient location in Brooklyn? See below for long list of nearby subway lines
Originally a factory (textile and paper likely) the building was converted to apartments about 30 years ago. This is true New York style living. It retains a bit of an industrial feel and it's rough around the edges. It's not a modern building, but that's what we love about it.
The loft is on the third floor - the top floor of the building. It gets great light, but during the afternoon in the summer it can get hot. We have plenty of fans and there is air conditioning in the bedroom.
Boerum Hill is one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Brooklyn. It’s all beautiful old town homes on tree-lined streets, neighborhood storefronts and amazing backyards if you can get invited into one. Be sure to wave if you see our favorite neighbors Michelle Williams and Keri Russell. Our block is a little grittier, but that's what you get when you live in a converted factory, and its safe and well worth it for the extra space.
Smith Street is the main strip in Boerum Hill which has been referred to as Brooklyn's "restaurant row" - ton of restaurants, bars, boutiques, markets and coffee shops. Court Street is one block further and boasts even more shops and restaurants. On the other sides are 5th Ave in Park Slope, Atlantic Avenue on your way to downtown Brooklyn, and the Gowanus bars and restaurants of 3rd Ave.
The best thing about this neighborhood is that on top of being an outstanding neighborhood, it’s completely surrounded by the other best neighborhoods in Brooklyn. We are a short walk from Park Slope, Cobble Hill, Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn Heights, Downtown Brooklyn, Fort Greene, Prospect Heights and up-and-coming Gowanus.
We are not exaggerating; the apartment is probably in the most convenient location in Brooklyn. The apartment is just a 5-10 minute walk to:
Atlantic Avenue / Barclays Station
