Loft in Williamsburg Area w/ Roof

Apartment - Private room · Anthony St, Brooklyn, NY 11222, United States

A private bedroom in an eclectic 3 bedroom loft apartment. Very close to lots of great bars, venues, shop, restaurants and activities in Williamsburg and Greenpoint, and just 30 minutes to central Manhattan. Best for laid back younger guests.

The Space

Available for short term stay is ONE of three separate small private rooms, each about 90 SF, with full bed mattresses lofted above the floor with some short steps up. There is a roof with some chairs and a good view of the Manhattan skyline.

It's very near delis, fun bars, really great restaurants, awesome pizza, a nice cafe, 15 minute walk or 5 minute b24 bus ride to the Graham L subway stop and 15 minute walk to the Nassau G, and 30 minutes total travel time to Union Square. That is a central subway hub. From there you can get to Times Square, Grand Central, Chinatown, and Wall Street area in 5-10 minutes, or the major museums in 15 minutes.

It is a 15-20 minute walk to Williamsburg, a very nice Brooklyn area with many great shops, restaurants, bars and a huge music scene. There are free transfers between the buses and trains. Also it's right off the Morgan exit of the BQE/395, which makes it a 10 minute, $20 dollar cab ride from LaGuardia and 20 minute $40 ride from JFK.

This is in a big 1,200 SF loft with 12 Foot ceilings, hard wood floors, fridge, microwave, shower(shared, across the hall, through my kitchen), 2 half bathrooms, a couch, recliner, kitchen table, two computers, and wifi. There's a lot of big windows, and great light during the day! I'll provide clean sheets and towels.

The space is a converted warehouse space with rooms built out above a hardware store and next to a gas station. It's pretty quiet other than the constant whooshing of the highway nearby, which is not an issue for most people. It's kind of like the ocean waves! When the windows are all closed, it's hardly noticeable. The rooms do not lock, but the apartment itself is behind a series of three locked doors.

It's right across the street from a nice residential neighborhood with all your needs.

Sometimes there's band practice or recording across the hall, but it's rarely noticeable in the bedrooms, and not very loud in the living room.

There's a full fridge, a double hotplate, a toaster oven, pots and pans, and salt and pepper for all your basic cooking needs.

There's also a teapot and tea, and a coffee machine and coffee, for your morning rituals.

There is a TV and a projector to watch movies on VHS, Blu-Ray, DVD, and Netflix! I have a pretty big and varied collection. Also I have a nice record player, and a pretty good collection of Records and CDs. There's an input to connect your iPod or other MP3 player to. There's a piano to play also, if you're so musically inclined!

I live in the building, so I'll be around pretty often if you need anything.

There are no animals here, but some pets may be OK for a few days.

Parking is plentiful, right in front, safe and free.

Available by the day, week or month for a couple months. If your dates don't look available on the calender, please inquire, as I have multiple rooms, and this system is sometimes inaccurate. Please read and follow the rules. Hope to talk soon!

Guest Access

Minimal but functional kitchen, 2 half bathrooms and one with a shower. Roof. Street parking. Living room with stereo, records, CDs, TV, Videos and Netflix. Lots of books and graphic novels.

Interaction with Guests

I live across the hall, so I usually stick to myself except for check-in, though if I'm not too busy, I'm often up for a beer around the corner!

The Neighborhood

Within a 5 minute walk, there's 4 bars. Two of them have great beers and food, and one also has a very nice whiskey collection. Two awesome pizza places are also 5 minutes away. Within a 15-30 minute walk this increases by at least 10x!

Best BQQ in the city: Fette Sau
A really fun bar any night: Union Pool
A great venue and fun place: Brooklyn Bazaar
Can't miss Smorgasburg and Brooklyn Flea during the warmer months!

Getting around

It's a 15 minute walk to the L train, or a 5 minute bus ride.

There's free parking right in front.

It's super easy by car, as it's right next to the Morgan Ave and McGuinness Ave exits of I-278.

LaGuardia takes 10 minutes and 20 bucks in a taxi! Double both for JFK, and triple for Newark. All are about 60-90 minutes by public transport.

  • Place is as described. I loved my room and the location was great for the price. Well heated, slightly cluttered, def suits younger guests.

  • We were not very comfortable in this place. The location is quite remote from williamsburg. To go for a shower, you need to go out of the apartment and into the host's apartment. This shower is shared between everyone. We didn't find anything ready, the sheets were cleaned after we arrived but never put on the bed or anything remotely as that, we didn't receive new towels troughout our stay. We only saw the host the day we arrived in the place. It's very noisy, you can hear the highway traffic from your room. The whole place is full of things, would be quite spacious otherwise, and the kitchen is no exception (it has a lot of things but lacks other basics like a sharp knife). The people were ok but we didn't find the place confortable at all and wouldn't stay again.

    Response from Andrea:

    I describe in the ad exactly the location(15 minutes to the train and Williamsburg), the situation with the shower, and the sound from the highway. The huge amount of pictures in the ad shows exactly the amount of things I have, such as the piano, two couches, books, records, TV, tables, etc... If she had only looked at the ad throughly, she would have known ALL of this. If she wanted fresh towels, or a sharper knife, she could have asked. It's not for everybody, that's why I describe it SO thoroughly. However most people love it.

  • Andrea is awesome! Nicest guy ever and his place is hella cool.

  • I stayed at Andreas extremely late notice and also added an extra night late notice and Andrea was extremely accommodating in the circumstances. His communication was great and accessing the unit/keys was super easy. The unit/room itself was tiny but exactly what I needed for my short stay. It has to be mentioned that the room is right beside a busy road, so bring ear plugs if you are a light sleeper. The room was very inexpensive, you get what you pay for, if you're expecting a five star room you will be disappointed. BUT if you're a simple traveller who just needs a place to recharge then I would definitely say to lock it in. Train station 10 minute walk away and easy to get to. Thanks Andrea!

  • Our stay was so sick! Andrea's apartment is in a cool spot easy to access everything and he was a super nice dude, help us out in many ways! Thanks man!

  • I stayed in Andrea's place for a month. I had a good stay here. It was quiet the vast majority of the time. It felt cozy and homey. Andrea is a cool, helpful guy. I met some cool people who stayed during my time there. The road noise can get pretty loud, so I would recommend earplugs while sleeping (which I had).

  • We stayed at Andrea's only a couple of nights - it was a little different than expected but still a total NYC/Brooklyn experience that we liked. We had a lot of privacy which was nice - other guests only showed up on the last night we were there.
    The location is fine - close enough to great food, shops, etc. We walked everywhere and got to see a lot of the area.
    Andrea is great! Super friendly and accommodating. Gives you everything you need and leaves you be.
    I would definitely recommend the space if you're open to a true experience and not expecting the cleanliness and order of a hotel. You have to rough it a tiny bit but its worth it and fun - and so affordable!

    Thanks Andrea!

  • Incredible place. Very creative and lots of energy. Lots of funky things to check out. Even has American Beauty on DVD great locale for the movie. One thing, there are some relics from the past that you may think you steps back in time by seeing an old iMac or an old G3 tower but great experience for a flashback. Andrea is a creative & funky but straight to busy dude loved his demeanor.

About
Audio Engineer and Sales Associate living in New York City for 12 years now. I know a lot about the city if you need any advice. I keep my own home nice, and have the respect to keep others nicer. Easy to get along with, even though I like to keep to myself a lot to read, listen to records, and work. I sublet my rooms very frequently and haven't had any big problems. I've been doing this over three years now, so I'm getting good at it!
