I'm from San Francisco, but I've been living in Brooklyn for several years now. I work as a librarian and I'm getting a doctorate in English literature. When not handling books, I run. A lot.
Emma's cosy apartment is very well located. Ideal for explorations of Brooklyn and Manhattan. It is very clean and tidy and Emma was for all questions immediately accessible. I felt comfortable. It was a nice stay for me. Thank you.
My Stay at Emma's place was great! I stayed there three nights with a friend of mine and then I added three additional nights because I felt very comfortable at Emma's place and did not want to look for something else.
The location is great. Greenpoint has a lot of bars, cafés and restaurants to offer. Besides, the neighbourhood still feels quiet and non-tourist, which I liked a lot. To Manhattan you only have to walk over the Pulaski Bridge, which takes like 10 minutes and then you are in Manhattan with only one subway stop. Even walking over the bridge at night, I always felt safe in that area.
Thanks Emma for hosting us!
Our stay at Emma's place was great. Emma has a very cozy basement apartment in a great neighbourhood in Brooklyn, Greenpoint. There are a lot of good breakfast places, cafés and bars around. To get to Manhattan, you have to walk ten minutes over a bridge, but then it's only one stop to Grand Central Station, thus it's very close and convenient. I also stayed an additional three nights at Emma's place by myself and felt very safe in the area (also with walking over the bridge at night).
Emma has a cat that will look for your attention, but we decided to keep it out of our room, which was no problem. You should also be aware, that the bed is a futon and therefore there's no real mattress.
Emma was very helpful with information regarding places to eat and how to get around. She also stayed at her boyfriend's place some of the nights we were there.
I would definitely recommend staying at Emma's place. It's a very good option to stay in New York!
Great stay at Emma's house. The room was just exactly has described, and Emma is a very friendly person. Neither us and Emma have spent many times at home but every time we asked her for any info or advice she helped us. And ... yes Ron the cat is also very friendly and cute :)
My stay at Emma's was great. She was polite and friendly. Her place is immaculately clean and very nicely decorated. Best of all, it is so quiet at night. I hope to get the chance to stay again.
Emma was a great host. The place is located in wonderful Greenpoint... You have all what you need around the appartment.. Supermarkets, underground, bars, dinners ...etc.
We loved to stay there, beautiful, clean and quiet room.
Emma's place is very clean and nicely furnished and decorated. The apartment is located in a nice area. I would definitly recomend staying with her.
We had a great stay at Emma's. Emma had many great recommendations for the area. She was also very responsive in communications leading up to our stay. Ron the cat was great company to keep too.
Greenpoint is a nice and quiet neighborhood. It's only about a 15 minute walk to Williamsburg, too. It was nice to come home to Greenpoint after a busy day in Manhattan.
We would definitely stay with Emma again.
Emma was a great host. The apartement is superclean and Greenpoint is a easygoing neighborhood aside the Manhatten-crowds. Ron is a friendly cat in need of a lot of affection (petting).
Excellent experience. Convenient, cute and cozy flat (though I did bump my head a couple of times being 6'3). Emma is very friendly and helpful. Ron the cat is awesome, super friendly, so if you wear dark clothes, bring a lint roller, Ron is a bit hairy :). And Greenpoint is a very nice area! Would like to stay again when visiting NYC.
Emma and her partner were great guests - considerate, laid back, and easy to communicate with. They left the place just as they had found it. They are welcome back any time.
Emma was a wonderful, respectful guest. She followed all of rules and directions with ease and left my space in perfect condition. I would host her again anytime.
It was a pleasure to host Emma! Communication with her was easy and effective, and I'm pretty sure I returned to the apartment cleaner than I left it, which was so nice. She also left me a bag of coffee, which was totally unnecessary, but really sweet, and a treat to return home to. I'd gladly host her again!
A very nice guest
I've known Emma for a couple of years now and can honestly say she is trustworthy and reliable. Her apartment is well maintained, comfortable and also happens to be in a charming and hip neighborhood. A must see if you are visiting NYC, if you stay with her I guarantee that you will have a great time!
