The Space

Our recently built 2 bed, 2 bath apartment is in New York's hottest neighborhood (City of Cool) and has 1200 sq ft of living space with amazing views of the Manhattan skyline and convenient subway access.

Amenities
This is a full service luxury building with 24-hour concierge, fitness center and large common courtyard along with fantastic appliances including Subzero refrigerator, kitchen with Viking range, Bosch Dishwasher and wine cooler.

Transport
The F, R and A,C subway stations are within 5 minutes walk and will get you to Central Park in 25 minutes, Times Square in 15 minutes, the High Line/Chelsea in 15 minutes and Wall Street or Lower East Side in 5 minutes. The 2,3,4,5 subway is less than 10 minutes away.
A taxi into SOHO only takes 10 minutes (around $12).
Entrances to the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges are also a short 5 minute walk away and from there its only a 20 minute walk into Manhattan.
NYC is a fantastic city to bike and we also have 3 guest bikes in the garage that guests can use along with helmets and bike locks. Its an easy 10-15 minute bike ride into Chinatown or Wall Street. There is also a Citibike station located 50 yards from the apartment for cheap bike rentals.

The Area
There are lots of great restaurants and bars nearby, including Vinegar Hill House, Grimaldis, Gran Electrica, River Cafe and Superfine, to name just a few.

The new Barclays Center is only 1 mile from the apartment and is great for seeing a concert, ice hockey or a Nets NBA game.

Grocery, liquor and drug stores are all within a 3 minute walk from the apartment.

Interior
The apartment has a king bed in bedroom 1 and a queen bed in the 2nd bedroom. There are 2 bathrooms both with shower and tub. A queen-sized air mattress is also available on request. Sheets and towels are provided. The apartment is about 3-4 times the size of an average Manhattan hotel room!!

The apartment has a fully equipped kitchen. high-speed WIFI, AC and heating along with a washer/dryer. There is no TV but hey you did not come to New York to watch TV.

The apartment is ideal for parents with young children as we have lots of stuff for kids (kids books, boxes of toys, high chair, crib) and there some fantastic kids playgrounds nearby.

If you're driving here there are 2 paid parking garages nearby and free on-street parking is available at the front/sides of the apartment (although not guaranteed).

We are happy to answer any questions you may have and will do so ASAP. We'll also make sure there is some milk, juice, and wine in the fridge for your arrival.

Please note we live in the apartment part-time and rent it out when we are traveling or staying in our weekend house. We travel a lot. The apartment is available most Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights.

Thanks for taking a look and I hope you decide to stay in our fantastic apartment.

  • Highly recommended - both Host and Apartment!

    We received lots of good, friendly and welcoming communications from Craig and Anita before and after we arrived and great tips on places to eat and things to do in Brooklyn and Manhattan.

    Apartment is lovely with great view and easy access across New York and also good walking options. Again, made to feel like a welcome guest.

  • The appartement was great and is well located. Craig was a very nice host and had a lot of insider information for us. Check-in and check-out were easy and very uncomplicated. Altogether a perfect location for a stay in New York. Hopefully we will come back soon.

  • Pas de surprise concernant l'appart, il est super, très agréable et surtout spacieux, nous étions 2 couples et avons vraiment appréciés les 2 grandes chambres et 2 salles de bains!!! Rien a dire non plus niveau propreté. Concernant sa situation, parfait pour dumbo et brooklyn, à proximité du métro pour se rendre dans Manhattan. Par contre l'immeuble se situe au milieu d'un carrefour, donc surprenant dans un 1er temps , pas vraiment de vie de quartier , mais nous sommes des provinciaux!!!!!! Un peu bruyant , c'est le seul reproche que l'on pourrait faire. Par contre, Craig est au top!!! Il est super disponible, répond à toutes les questions (mail) donne plein d'adresses, bref on a envie d'y retourner et c'est tout...

  • Craig was gracious and very helpful. The apartment was spacious and a good value. However, I feel the apartment should have been professionally cleaned before our arrival. We did have to pay for a cleaning fee but it was for when we left. I know this was not deliberate on Craig's part but it made the stay a bit less enjoyable than if the place was cleaner. Otherwise, it was perfect for our needs. Lots of room. I would recommend this apartment.

  • Excellent condo, great location, helpful host who met us when we arrived and gave a full low-down on the neighborhood. I'd recommend it to anyone.

  • Anita and Craig's apartment is really big and spacious, as well as extremely modern and clean. The area is really convenient, right near two subway stations and a 5 minute walk from the waterfront. We only met Craig but he was really kind and helpful, giving us lots of recommendations. We would highly recommend staying at their apartment whilst in New York!

  • We stayed at Craig and Anita's DUMBO apartment for two nights and had a wonderful experience. Craig met us (2 couples in our 60's) at the door to the building promptly upon arrival at the pre-arranged time and gave us a tour of the property. He was very informative with lots of neighborhood info and tips for walking routes and places to go. He gave us his contact information in case we need to get ahold of him for anything, but also introduced us to the building doorman as another resource available to us during our stay.

    The building itself is great, with a huge patio and a very nice workout room on the main level. The location is on the eastern edge of DUMBO so you have a 5-10 minute walk to get to most of the things to do and see in that area. It's right next to the Manhattan Bridge and the BQE Expressway so it's rather noisy with traffic when you're outside or have a window open. Otherwise, the apartment was very spacious, clean and quiet. The beds were large and comfortable. Craig even left a few beers and a bottle of wine for us in the fridge - a very nice and thoughtful touch.

    Communication with Craig prior to the visit was so easy. He responded to every email and any question we had very promptly.

    Thanks Craig and Anita for a great first experience with Airbnb. We would definitely recommend this to anyone.

  • Great place. Clean & great building. Looks just like what you see in the photos. Our hosts were very accommodating, getting us extra keys & other items we needed for our stay. I would definitely stay here again & would recommend it to someone else.

  • Great place! Craig and Anita have a spacious apartment, especially for New York standards, with excellent views of Manhattan. The apartment is convenient to many subway lines—A,C, F, 2, 3, 4, 5—and to Brooklyn locations, Dumbo, Brooklyn Heights, BAM, and Barclay Center. Craig and Anita were wonderful in helping us plan our trip and responded to our questions immediately. I would highly recommend this apartment. Thanks Craig and Anita.
