About this listing
Conveniently located on the border of Williamsburg/Greenpoint, in a very quiet neighborhood.
We have a sweet cat, Corrie. If you don't mind petting and feeding her, we would be very thankful! Otherwise, we'd be putting her up at the Kitty Hotel.
Very nice apartment bordering Greenpoint and Williamsburg, just an 8 minute walk from the Graham L train stop. You can get into the city in about 10 mins on the train after the walk.
This 2nd floor apartment is about 950 square feet, right across the street from a beautiful historic church called St. Cecilia's. It's also 3 blocks away from McGolrick Park, which offers an amazing farmer's market on Sunday's (check hours and seasonal availability). This apartment has storage space that's unheard of for New York standards. Brand new kitchen and appliances, original black and white tiles in the dining room from the 60's, amazing light throughout the apartment. It's truly a Brooklyn gem.

Excerpt taken from Airbnb about the neighborhood:
"Brunch and bike away the day and lounge and drink away the night in this infinitely hip warehouse-turned-loft Brooklyn neighborhood. New York City’s top spot for looking awesome while ordering beers that come in a tall can, Williamsburg is a food, drink, and music lover’s paradise. This ultra-trendy neighborhood completes its super cool repertoire with alternative-looking street art and two-story murals."
No parties, no pets, no smoking inside the apartment, no rooftop access.
Roy and Katie's home was gorgeous. So spacious yet with a cozy homey feel, the space made us feel like we were true Brooklyn-ers. Each room has its own feel; the tile floor is beautiful, the kitchen pristine, the bathroom elegant and spotless, and the bedroom is a warm den in the evening and full of light during the day. We were looking for a beautiful, clean apartment with personality, and we found it.
But the best part of our stay had to be the hosts themselves. Roy and Katie left us a couple welcome goodies on the table as well as an unbelievably helpful and organized welcome binder, with ideas of places to eat, drink, get groceries, order takeout, find emergency help, catch the subway, and anything and everything we'd ever need while staying there. It was funny too, with personality... just like their home. We referred to the binder pretty much constantly throughout our stay, frequently finding ourselves saying, "Do you think there's any good pizza around here?" ... "To the binder!" and it really did guide us to the some of the best spots we've ever found in the city.
Not 2 blocks away we found what may be our new favorite bar we've ever been to, called The Richardson. Katie and Roy left a note saying the bar has a "speakeasy feel" and great cocktails, and they were spot on. Every place we visited suggested by the hosts was truly fabulous -- Mesa Coyoacan 3 blocks away, Humboldt & Jackson right down the street -- these were our favorite moments of the trip. We utterly and completely fell in love with Brooklyn.
Not only would we stay at this beautiful gem again, but we plan to!
