Located on a beautiful tree lined street in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn this lovely 2 bedroom apartment offers privacy and comfort all while being close to the excitement of New York City!
Apartment has washer, dryer and dishwasher, wireless internet, central ac/heat and 100s of vinyl records for you to listen to. Located on the 4th floor of a beautiful brownstone, the apartment also has it's own private roof deck with gorgeous views of Manhattan.
The apartment is in a great location, right on the border of Brooklyn Heights and Cobble Hill. It is close to DUMBO and the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges, and is a stone's throw from the new Brooklyn Bridge Park, and a 5-10 minute walk from 2,3,4,5,F,G,A,C and R subways-- so you can quickly get to any neighborhood in Manhattan or Brooklyn.
The Governor's Island Ferry leaves from the dock that is just 2 blocks from our house. The other ferries and water taxis to Manhattan leave from the dock in DUMBO which is a 20 minute walk away. The East River Ferry can even take you up to Williamsburg in 5 minutes flat.
We are right on the border of Brooklyn Heights/Cobble Hill, and both neighborhoods are equally gorgeous and charming. Both historic neighborhoods, they are filled with brownstones, tree lined streets, little parks, cobble stone streets tucked in unexpected places, even water access. Lots of movies are filmed on our area blocks, and its no surprise why-- the area is lovely.
The Brooklyn Heights Promenade and its gorgeous views of Manhattan are a short 7 minute walk away. We are also close to the Red Hook, Carroll Gardens, Boerum Hill and DUMBO neighborhoods.
SHOPPING (GROCERIES TOO):
One of our favorite things about this neighborhood is the shopping. There's an Urban Outfitters and a Barney's CoOp 2 blocks up Atlantic Ave, and Smith Street, Court Street and Montague Streets have lots of small boutiques, antique stores and specialty shops.
If you like to cook, there are amazing butchers and cheese shops and bakeries and middle eastern shops that sell in bulk-- even one of the city's few Trader Joe's is just a few blocks up on Atlantic. If cooking is your thing, you could definitely have a great time doing so here. We also have a fully stocked kitchen that you are welcome to use to create your meals.
On Saturdays, the outdoor Brooklyn Flea in Fort Greene is a 30 minute walk away, faster by bus. Prospect Park and all of Park Slope's shops and brownstones are a 30 minute walk. There are farmer's markets here in our neighborhood on both Saturday (Borough Hall) and Sunday (Cobble Hill Park).
There are GREAT cafes, coffee shops and brunch spots in a 2 block radius that make for a delicious local (and authentic) Brooklyn breakfast.
Smith Street is known as Brooklyn's Restaurant Row and boasts all kinds of dining from casual to fancy, local to international cuisine. The area has many great places to eat, and we have lots of favorite spots. We are happy to provide a list of our top choices/recommendations if you are interested.

First time and last time air BnB user! Owner completely unhelpful and obstinate about having been clear with instructions when they were not. Finally checked my mother and sister in to find an apartment sparsely and super cheaply furnished (300/night!) and a note advising them to not be alarmed when a plumber would randomly stop by to "fix something" during their stay. The note also invited them to help themselves to anything in the fridge. Upon opening it, the disgusting state of the filthy refrigerator was enough to force me to profusely apologize to my Mom and sister for my poor judgement in choice of accomodations. Icing on the cake is after checkout, we were accused of somehow stinking the joint up (with diapers?, huh?) and apparently, wantonly moving furniture around. Avoid at all costs!
I was blown away at how nice this place was! The place was incredibly clean and comfortable. Sophia was really easy to work with. The next time I'm back in town, I'll be seeking this place out first.

Sophia's apartment is the epitome of urban cool. The apartment is bright, quiet and comfortable and we loved their littles touches with the typewriter and vintage furniture pieces. The bedroom is fantastic, huge with lots of light, along with a nice, big kitchen too. The vinyl collection is enviable and Sophia made us feel most welcome. The neighbors are very friendly and the location is really good, just a couple of blocks to Court Street.
The apartment was awesome, clean, and very bright and airy. The roof deck was great, just wish the weather had been better so we could enjoy it more. The apartment is on the 4th floor so if you have mobility issues this may not work well for you. Nice quiet street, we had a car and there is street parking but it can be hard to find. Subways are a few blocks away, about a 5-10 minute walk, but there's tons of good restaurants close by and a cute movie theatre. Sophia was easy to work with and we felt at home. Thank you.
Great apartment in truly one of the best neighborhoods in all of New York City. Clean, spacious, quiet, and a roof deck with an outstanding view of downtown NYC.
