A Ten-year resident of New York City, I love exploring this ever-evolving microcosm. When I'm not running around I'm usually working at my vintage boutique or hunting down amazing items to put in it!
To all the people who are looking to rent this room out!
Hi guys just wanted to write a little comment about this place for all of those potential renters out there. I stayed at this place for about 3 weeks, it was my first time in New York, I came from Europe and this really seemed like a sweet deal when I looked it up online. However, I just wanted to warn all the potential renters that this is not what it looks like, there were a few issues along the way and I feel obligated to just let everyone know!!!
First and foremost it is absolutely unbelievably cold in this apartment the owner saves money and the heat is always shut down!!!!! I have let the owner know that I am very cold and I am not used to these temperatures. I have asked her to provide me with the heater and she did however I was not allowed to keep it on at night time or even while taking a shower. As a result I got REALLY badly sick due to the cold temperatures and now that I have moved out of this place I am still recovering from being sick.
Another issue is the apartment is quiet dirty due to the cats that the lady owns; she works a lot and does not have the time to clean after the animals which I have found pretty disgusting.
All and all I have paid $1200 for the time being in that apartment and froze the entire time there, pretty ridiculous if you ask me NOT to provide people with heat for THAT much money!!!! RENT THIS ONE AT YOUR OWN RISK.
Living with Jess was nice. The area has a lot of cool stuff happening and I love Bedford Hill Coffee shop which is only a couple of minutes away. The subway is very close. The room is light and clean!
Had a great time at Jessica's place. Jessica is a wonderful and very knowledgeable host. Her place is cool, clean, cosy, and situated in an interesting neighborhood with a good mix of old Brooklyn and new Brooklyn. There is a G line subway stop just across the road which makes it very convenient.
I absolutely adored staying with Jess! Such an awesome and cool girl. The apartment is gorgeous and I fell in love with her kitties, they're a really nice little addition to such a cute place. Jess was really accommodating, always invited me out and was fantastic fun to go out with too! I'd recommend this place to anyone especially of you're on your own and want to have lots of fun, meet some seriously cool people and be in an area that is endlessly fascinating to explore.
Staying with Jessica was very nice.
Her place is funky and comfortable. You really get the Brooklyn & vintage feel which provides a real authentic New Yorker experience.
Her cats are very sweet and easy-going and enjoy the care and attention.
Jessica was very easy to organize things with and very helpful in answering all my questions. I didn't see her much during my stay as she was either at her store or out. It's a place to stay - not a flatshare in any way so if you are looking for the latter this is not it.
Overall my stay was very pleasant and I would recommend it to others.
Very nice host, creative apartment and amazing cats!! Her vintage shop is great and very nice restaurants and bars in the neighborhood!
Jess is great. Simple and direct communication and she was very accommodating to my girlfriend and I the one night we stayed. Her apartment has ton of character, as do her two cats and we would definitely recommend the stay.
Jess was direct, reliable and no-nonsense. Our stay was comfortable and her place was cozy and quiet. We were a little concerned about the area since we didn't know too much about Bedford Hill. But we found it to be charming with a few awesome cafés and restaurants nearby (Bedford Hill Coffee and Do or Dine) and the metro ridiculously close-- so it was easy to get to Williamsburg or Manhattan.
She also has two awesome cats... one of whom was trying to steal my boyfriend the whole time. Such a flirt!
Thanks again Jess.
clean place. spunky and knowledgeable host!
Very nice apartment in amazing neighborhood
Half a block till subway, plenty of interesting places to go in walking distance. Very safe.
Free parking - very convenient.
We enjoy our stay!
