Building tenants are in their mid-late 20s and early 30s. They are responsible, respectful and mindful of their neighbors.

South-facing floor to ceiling windows look out onto your own private balcony/terrace. The entire apartment gets superb natural light. The main area is open-concept with Caesarstone countertops and kitchen island, which opens into the dining/living room space. There is a brand new 40" LED ultra-slim flatscreen television in the living room with Apple TV (with Netflix, HULU). The kitchen has brushed stainless appliances (gas range, built-in microwave, full-sized refrigerator) and is fully equipped for any culinary endeavor. The sofa is roomy and extremely comfortable (approx. 87" long). There is a 40" round table that comfortably seats four (4) people. Please note: It is a different table than the rectangular one in the pictures.
The bedroom is spacious (12x12) and has a full-sized bed. Please note: Access to the aforementioned private terrace is off of the bedroom and not the main area.

You are within close walking, driving and train-ride distance to Lower Manhattan, Downtown Brooklyn and Brooklyn Heights. The apartment is located one and a half blocks from the York Street F train (first stop into Brooklyn from Manhattan). Short walk to High Street A/C train (first stop into Brooklyn from Manhattan). The New York Water Taxi at Pier 1 (Brooklyn Bridge Park) and the East River Ferry are also within close proximity and are an excellent option. Citibike kiosk located one block from the apartment on corner of York and Jay Streets.

Just a couple blocks from downtown DUMBO (Down Under Manhattan Bridge Overpass). DUMBO is Brooklyn's epicenter of technology, art and creativity. It is a neighborhood with an industrial vibe and lots of character and charm. Cobblestone streets separate factories now renovated into upscale loft condominiums and commercial office space.

A few noteworthy spots in the area:
- Parks & Attractions: Brooklyn Bridge Park, The Promenade, Galapagos Art Space, Jane's Carousel, numerous art galleries, and the infamous Brooklyn Bridge itself.
- Restaurants & Bars: Grimaldi's Pizza, Juliana's Pizza, 68 Jay, Vinegar Hill House, Almondine Bakery, Superfine, Starbucks, Gran Electrica, Brooklyn Roasting Company, Pinkberry.
- Retail/Shopping: West Elm, BoConcept, Modern Anthology, NOS Boutique, Brooklyn Industries, and a number of other unique shops and specialty boutiques definitely worth checking out.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • I've stayed at Cassie's place before and would do it again. It's a great 1BR (huge by NYC standards) in a convenient location. Cassie has the place done up nicely and is quick to communicate.

  • The place is lovely. Clean, comfortable and easy to get used to. Kitchen is well equipped, everything is really bright and sunny as stated. Subway is a block away, it's quite easy to get around.
    No central heating, but turning on the a/c and space heater solves the problem rather quickly. Cassie was quick to reply to messages. We'd definitely stay there again!

  • We stayed at Cassie's flat in March 2014 and it was perfect, she was there to meet us at check in and was super helpful during our stay. The flat location is ideal and very easy to get to the metro station with quick links to Manhathan. We will recommend this flat to anyone visiting NYC.

  • After searching multiple locations for the ideal apartment, we (my girlfriend and I) alighted upon Cassie's wonderful place. This place hooked us at first glance! Tastefully appointed, immaculate, catering to all of our needs, great location, amazing views, this was the diamond in the rough! My girlfriend was visiting America for the first time ever, and I wanted her to have a good experience, she loved NY, thanks in great part to the amazing location we found here. It's proximity to all the great features of NY really helped seal the deal for the perfect vacation. I can't wait to recommend Cassie's apartment to all my friends. What a superlative experience!

    March 2014
  • The apartment was great and Cassie was a perfect host: communicative, friendly and thorough. When I'm headed back to NYC, I'll definitely stay at her place again.

  • I stayed in the is apartment for the entire month of January rather than staying in a hotel while working in DUMBO. The location was excellent for this and the apartment was comfortable and well stocked in terms of kitchen accessories. Cassie was responsive before I arrived and helpful in checking in and responding when I had questions. The only downside to the apartment was that I happened to be there during a bitter cold snap and it was very difficult to heat with so many windows - not much to be done about that and fortunately those days passed quickly and I wrapped myself in the cozy throw when I was in the apartment.

    It was my first airbnb experience and was a success. Thank you Cassie!

    February 2014
  • We had a very good time at Cassie appartment. Cassie was very reliable and we didn't have any problem during our stay. We were closed from the subway and probably one the best view of Manhattan near the Brooklyn Bridge.
    I will be to stay at Cassie house again!
    Thank you.

  • The apartment was very nice and modern. The bed and couch was comfortable as well. Got a little cold at times but was an easy fix by turning on the heat. Would recommend to a friend!

    December 2013
  • Place was great. Very conveniently located. We actually had some bad weather and decided to stay in the first night for dinner and Cassie provided great ideas for delivery. Pedro's was great Mexican. Place was clean and well maintained. Would definitely use Cassie again.

    December 2013
  • Super clean and guest ready apartment. Very convenient getting in and out, would recommend to anyone. Thanks Cassie!

I love to cook, entertain friends, explore (both new and 'old familar') places, and see live music. Big fan of DIY projects. Spending my summer back 'n' forth between Martha's Vineyard (where I grew up) and Brooklyn (where I have lived for the last 6.5 years). Life in the City can feel crazy at times. I truly believe that having an inviting place to come home to is essential to one's sanity and overall well-being. :) Mi casa es su casa.
