If you are looking for a melting pot NY City experience in a up and coming, bohemian style neighborhood, this is your place!!! However, if you are looking for a 'Sex in the City' experience, this is not the right place for you.
This IS a wonderful loft in a renovated warehouse, just like you see in the movies. High ceilings with exposed beams and polished cement flooring from the turn of the century (the other century). Wonderful views of the Empire State building. This apartment accommodates up to 6 people easily, with a queen bed, fold out couch (queen) and a queen air bed. (NOTE: One bed is included in the price, any extra beds are $25/night per bed.) There is a kitchen with everything you could need plus staples like coffee, salt, sugar.
Located on a main street on the borders of Bedford Stuyvesant and Crown Heights sections of Brooklyn. A safe and racially diverse neighborhood- comprised mainly of families, younger professionals, and artists- this area offers many conveniences such as markets and local shopping, cafes and a bevy of dining/eating options…in addition to the Brooklyn Museum & Children’s Museum, Botanical Gardens, and Prospect Park being within walking distance so are the popular sections of Park Slopes, Fort Green and Clinton Hills.
It is located 2 blocks to the express A/C and 1 block to the LIRR so you can get to and from JFK easily. Plus get to the city in 15 minutes.
I have lived in the area for 6 years and love it and am usually in the area and available for advice, etc.
Fabulous changing neighborhood. With up and coming bars and restaurants. And great access to Manhattan.
2 blocks or 5 minutes walk to the subway. 15 minutes to the city.
Other Things to Note
One bed is included in the price, any extra beds are $25 per bed.
There is no smoking allowed in the apartment or the building. You must go to the street or the roof to smoke AND collect your cigarette butts.
Great spacious loft in Brooklyn. Only two blocks (5 minutes) from a subway station that services the A & C trains, so it's easy to get to Manhattan. Jennifer is a great host and the communication, booking, arriving & departing was all very easy. She made a late checkout possible even though she had already the next guest coming the same day. There is an elevator in the building so you don't have to carry the luggage to the third floor (I did because I didn't know there is one ;-) )
If you are very sensitiv to noise this might be not your place to be. Actually I am, but with the provided earplugs I slept like a log...
Die Kommunikation mit Jennifer war gut. Die Unterkunft entsprach der Beschreibung. Die Lage der Wohnung ist für einen Kurzurlaub in NYC hervorragend. Nicht Manhattan, aber eine gute Anbindung per U-Bahn. Somit sieht und "spürt" man auch, wie die normalen New Yorker leben und arbeiten. Denn Manhattan ist nicht wirklich NYC :-)
Sehr schöne und helle Wohnung in zentraler Lage. Die Express Linie nach Manhatten fährt direkt um die Ecke. Die Wohnung liegt an einer großen Straße, mit Oropax lässt sich aber super schlafen. Jennifer ist super lieb und hilfsbereit, wir konnten sie immer problemlos erreichen. Ich kann die Wohnung nur weiterempfehlen.
My experience was great! Jennifer was very hospitable and very accommodating to allow my film crew to shoot there. I would highly recommend this clean and convenient location.
Jennifer's communication is excellent and the space is great. Jennifer helped us navigate potential issues, and was unobtrusive when we didn't need assistance. An excellent introduction to AirBnb, thanks!
Apartment was exactly as described, clean well maintained and with all the information required. Jennifer was fantastic with everything, on top of any problems and very prompt with her responses. Would definitely stay again.

I currently live in NYC. I was raised in New Mexico, moved to Austin, Tx for 19 years where I did GPS research and then worked on Game development in Flash. Now I live in NYC and do real estate. I love to travel and Akumal is one of my favorite places to visit.
