Description

The Space

Enjoy a hidden oasis amid the bustling city—our airy flat is just the place to unwind after a day of sightseeing, window-shopping, and people-watching here in Brooklyn or anywhere else you choose to roam. With high ceilings, exposed brick, and a backyard garden, you will have a spacious, comfortable home base during your travels. Step inside our 150-year-old brick rowhouse and relax—curl up on the couch while you plan your activities for the day, or duck into the yard and enjoy the seclusion of an urban garden.

Want a great meal? Our neighborhood is filled with restaurants, cafes, and bars—something for every palate and budget. Or snack your way through one of several weekend farmers' markets. Or pick up gourmet groceries from one of our nearby markets and make your own feast in our thoughtfully appointed kitchen. It is well-equipped, with a dishwasher, blender, toaster, food processor, coffee press, kettle, etc.

Want to shop? Stroll one block to Smith Street's stores and boutiques. Go one block farther and check out the wares on and off Court Street. Walk 10 minutes to Atlantic Avenue and find antiques, furnishings, and designer boutiques. Take a longer walk or a short subway ride to Ft. Greene, the Brooklyn Flea, or Park Slope. Be adventurous and check out Red Hook and the Waterfront district.

Want views? Head to the river for a look at the Statue of Liberty, ride a water taxi from Red Hook to Lower Manhattan, or take a breathtaking walk across the Brooklyn Bridge.

Want to see a show? Check out the new Barclays Center, the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM), St. Ann's, the Mark Morris Dance Center, or the Brooklyn Museum.

Want to have fun with your kids? Head to Prospect Park (larger than Central Park!), one of several neighborhood playgrounds, the NYC Transit Museum, or the historic carousel in Brooklyn Bridge Park.

Want to get nearly anywhere else in the city? Walk 5 minutes to the F or G trains, or take a longer walk to the 2, 3, 4, 5, A, C, N, or R trains. 15 minutes to Ground Zero Memorial, 20 minutes to Greenwich Village, 25 minutes to Times Square/Broadway Theaters.

Want recommendations? We will be happy to share our top tips for enjoying the best of New York in whatever time you have. We love our hometown and look forward to sharing it with you!

Other notes:

The apartment is one large open space. Except for the bathroom, there are no doors and no walls.

The apartment has no washer or dryer, but there is a laundromat two blocks away which offers self-service and drop-off service. We have a cart and laundry bags to borrow if you want to take your laundry there.

Early check-in and/or late check-out available if the adjacent dates are not booked.

On parle un peu de Français.

*** Please note: We live one block away from a large public housing project. ALL Airbnb apartments in this neighborhood are near it one way or another. It is not dangerous, and you'd have to really go out of your way to walk past it, but it IS an urban environment. However, we have lived here for ten years (we actually live upstairs from the Airbnb apartment with our toddler son.... don't worry, he sleeps through the night!), and have never felt unsafe. ***

NO SMOKING. NO PETS.
