About This Listing
Enjoy your New York experience while staying at this brand new, cozy, very homy apartment. It is literally located in the heart of NYC, in Greenpoint Brooklyn. Its strategic location allows you to connect to all 5 boros within minutes. You will find the G train (subway line) just a block away from the apt, which connects you to either Uptown Manhattan and Queens, or to Downtown Manhattan and Brooklyn. You will also enjoy the gorgeous view of the New York skyline by the East River which is located a block and a half away from the apt. There you will be able to just sit and relax on a bench at the pier while enjoying the view, or you can take the Water Taxi (from that very pier) to cross directly to 34th street Midtown Manhattan, or to Downtown manhattan within minutes.
The neighborhood is very nice and safe, it reflects the typical NY home style that you see in movies. excellent restaurants surround the apt, as well as great supermarkets, delis/ groceries open 24/7, and all major banks (Citibank, Bank of America, HSBC bank, Chase bank, and more). There is a laundromat right in the building of the apt. The famous McCarren Park is in the neighborhood at a 15 minutes walking distance.
Did i mention that the apt is on the 1st floor of a secured bulding? therefore you won't have to carry your luggages for too long.
The apartment is large and is great for for singles, couples, students and whole families. It is equipped with a big kitchen/ dining room, from which you can freely use all dishes, frying pans..etc., a beautiful private bathroom with bricks all over, and a private bedroom with a super comfortable Queen bed. All rooms have windows including the bathroom, and the sun hits everywhere!

Skan was incredibly helpful and his place was excellent. He was very responsive to any questions I had and was full of suggestions. Luckily I used to live around the corner so I was quite at home. It is an exceptional location and a great place to stay! I'll definitely go back next time I need a place in Greenpoint or NYC!
Like the other reviews have stated, the apartment is very nice, the neighborhood is fantastic. It's close to transportation, great restaurants bars etc. And the bed and shower were very good. My one complaint was that there is no method for preparing coffee in the apartment. We stayed there a week and it was kind of a hassle to have to run out for coffee every morning. Even a simple Melitta pour over cone would have been great. I actually tried to buy one in the neighborhood to leave there but couldn't find one. So that is my suggestion to make the place 100% perfect.
This was my first Air bnb experience ... and will not be my last.
Skan's place was/is amazing. It is beautiful, clean, comfortable, safe and very very close/ accessible to all transportation, sites, venues, shopping, delis and resturants in all boroughs. Skan is consistently quick in responding to all inquiries ---from my initial request to stay... to making him aware I was checking out. Skan really made my first Air bnb experience smooth - which was great as a solo traveler!!!
The roomy apartment is only a block from the G line ubway/train. The East River Ferry is one block away and gets you to Manhattan in 20 minutes! There is a bus stop right out front. I was suprised to see so many new cafes, juice bars, book stores--right on the same street...its a new and inviting area. The apartment was very clean, well supplied (towels, blankets, etc.), has a full kitchen and bathroom--just as described..... and so comfortable!!
The process for getting and returning the keys was very easy. Skan contacted me to be sure I was settled in and if I needed anything, he was available. I really anticipate returning to Skans place on my next visit. It's the perfect place to enjoy NYC. ..with the comforts of home!
Wir haben eine tolle Zeit in Skans Apartment verbracht. Die Lage ist super, Skan war ein sehr netter Gastgeber, Greenpoint ist ein wunderbarer Bezirk für einen New York-Aufenthalt: Sehr ruhig, und dennoch gibt es viele sensationell gute Restaurants und Cafés in der Gegend. Die Fähre nach Manhattan fährt nur ein paar Hundert Meter weiter ab und auch zur U-Bahn ist es nicht weit. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt.
About the Host, Skan
I've lived in Greenpint Brooklyn NY for the past 13 years, it's definitely changed towards the psitive dramatically, not that it was ever bad. I am an athletic person who loves to play sports, basket ball in particualr, and on the professinal side i distribute pharmaceutical products, vitamins to be exact. I love to meet people from all over the world, and NY never failed me on that side, it's a city filled with peopel from all walks of life. Getting to know my guests will only better me as a person and enrich my knowledge about life ;)
