Breathtaking views of Manhattan welcome you when you arrive at this light filled and comfortable apartment in the heart of Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Williamsburg's great restaurants, boutiques, and markets and 2 subway lines are a short walk away.
This penthouse apartment offers clear, sweeping, panoramic views of the city from a 400 square foot private roof deck which is connected to the apartment itself. Hang out on the plant-filled deck and or cozy up and the couch and relax after coming back from your adventures. You may enjoy being in the light filled, breezy apartment so much that you won't want to leave the apartment at all. There is a large, beautiful wood desk for those needing to work. Even in the winter, this apartment is the perfect, sunny and bright getaway within the city.
If you do wander, McCarren Park - including the wonderful farmer's market, newly built pool, ice skating rink, running track, and tennis courts - is a two minute walk. Great restaurants and bars, as well as a spacious gym (with a free day for first timers) are also within a 2-3 minute walk. In addition, all of the nightlife, art galleries, boutique shops, of Williamsburg and Greenpoint are within a 5 - 10 minute walk.
The apartment features new furniture including a tempurpedic bed. There is an outdoor dining table and chaise lounge on the deck, AC, wifi, a well appointed kitchen, and a proper stereo.
Greenpoint and Williamsburg are easily two of the best neighborhoods in the city and certainly Brooklyn. Prior to your arrival I will send you my list of places to drink, dine, and recreate accumulated diligently over the past 8 years of living here.
The G train is one block away and the Bedford stop on the L train is an 8 minute walk. Two bus lines which traverse Brooklyn are also one block away. 30 - 40 minutes to JFK by taxi, or about an hour via train. 20 minutes to LaGuardia via taxi.
My in-laws stayed in the apartment while visiting us. They had a great experience there! the apartment was clean and comfortable. and Will was very prompt to answer any questions. Location is great, two minutes from the G line and 10 minutes from the L. They would definitely come back again.
Will was a very good host for our trip to New York. As soon as he found out my girlfriend and I were cooks he immediately went out of his way to give us a list of restaurants and markets that we could visit. His space is very cozy, with all the amenities you really need for a great stay in Brooklyn. Not to mention the incredible city view from his deck and that super comfy memory foam bed. Thank you Will for being such a great host, we'll be sure to keep in touch with you whenever we're in town.
Will was extremely helpful with us and the view of the NY skyline from his flat is really gorgeous.
If you want the quintessential Brooklyn experience, stay at Will's.
It's a really cute studio in the Greenpoint/Williamsburg area and there are many restaurants/coffeeshops nearby and open late. The apartment was clean and in great condition and you've got a full kitchen if you need it. Oh, the private rooftop deck is AWESOME with an AMAZING view of the city!
Will's place has a good bed and amazing view on Manhattan. We had the place for ourselves which was great but we could also reach to Will when necessary. The L train was easily to take with the bus.
Will's appartment is THE place to be for a trip to New York. The appartment has all you need and the views are just stunning. Also Williamsburg has plenty of good bars and restaurants. Thanks to Will we ended up at some really nice places, Glasserie is our favorite. After a busy day downtown Manhattan, it's great to come 'home' in pretty and laid-back Williamsburg.
Will is truly a great host, very discrete but always available for questions or particular demands. His flat is the best i have ever stayed in. It is literally a penthouse in the sky. The view is magical, you never get tired of it. The deck is panoramical and large. The neighbourhood is both cool and quiet. Only problem with this appartment - the fires of envy. I hope i will stay again in this floating and sun-filled balcony on the City.
Nice location for the price, amenities. Only 30 minutes to mid town Manhattan. 1 1/2 hour to JFK. Quiet, total privacy. Definitely will go again.
Will's a thoughful, responsive and attentive host, and his Greenpoint penthouse and deck are both delighful and functional. Notable assets include a spectacular view of Manhattan from the large and well furnished deck, quality sheets and towels, and a really good bed. There were even moon flowers in bloom during my visit!
Will is a great host! I had a wonderful first-time AirBnb experience all thanks to him. He's extremely organized, clean, easy to talk to, knows his city well, and is very responsive.
His "penthouse" is a thing of beauty with an awesome deck that overlooks the NYC skyline. Great airflow. Comfy bed. Clean sheets. Good sound system. Quiet neighborhood. Cool decor and great water pressure in the showers (relaxing after a long day out in the city).
Overall - Thanks to Will, I don't think I'll ever stay in a hotel again and when I do make another trip out to NY, I'll be sure to check Will's calendar as I would love to stay there each and every time.
Thanks again for your hospitality!
