I am from Brooklyn New York. I have spent a lit of time in the south, where my moms family resides. also I attended college in Orlando Florida. I am a pretty straight forward lad back type of guy.
We worked in Manhattan and it took us just 20 minutes by the J-Train to get to the financial district. The connection to Manhattan is good, cause you can also use a few bus lines direct next to the apartment.
The apartment is exactly like on the pictures. Vernon provides us with amenties like coffeepads, paper towels and soap. In general the apartment was outfitted very professional, even an iron was available. If we had any issues, Vernon was very helpful and contacted us immediately. At first we had to become familiar with the neighborhood, which consists mainly of Afro-Americans but we had no problems and people were very friendly and even greet us at the street.
We enjoyed our stay at Vernon on Greene and would definitely recommend his address. Furthermore we would love to stay there again.
Vernon was a great host! we didn´t get to see him during our stay until the last day, but he was very thoughtful! His place was just as you can see it in the pictures, great place!
The subway station is just 3 blocks away, and you always have 2 small grocery store for last minute cravings... Good choice! I´ll recomend it!
Vernon fue un anfitrion buenisimo! No lo vimos mucho durante nuestra estadía, pero de todos modos fue muy amable! Su lugar es como se ve en las fotos, y es un hermoso apartamento!
La estación de subte queda solo a 3 cuadras y puedes encontrar dos mercaditos en cada esquina, muy utiles para compra de comida de ultimo minuto.. Muy buena opción. Yo lo recomendaría!
We stayed there for four days. The Appartement was more than Perfect. The kitchen was fully equipped.
Vernon is a absolute reliable landlord. He Even cared at our departure for the Taxi !
Next Time when we are in New York ,we will definetly stay there again!
Très bel appart. dans un quartier cosmopolite comme seul NY sait le faire. Pour le peut de temps que nous y avons passé, ce fût très agréable. Tenez-vous le pour dit, tout, mais bien tout y est inclus. Il ne manque de rien à l'intérieur.
This place was great. Very clean, and conveniently located in a safe neighborhood. Would definetly stay there again.
My girlfriend and I stayed at Vernon on the Greene for 5 warm days in early September.
Apartment is exactly as it seems - clean, homely and inviting. Really convenient location, neighborhood was good, about 15 minutes to Manhattan.
Vernon was accommodating, although the apparent is set up so well you don't need to really ask him much about anything as everything you need is there in the apartment. Oh and the air conditioning was good for those hot nights.
Stay out in Bed-Stuy and see some of Brooklyn. I will recommend Vernon on the Green to friends in Australia.
Great place in great neighborhood.
The stay at The Vernon on Greene in Brooklyn last week with my family was great. The apartment is as shown in the pictures, with a fully equipped kitchen and everything we needed. The neighbourhood was lively and we felt very safe walking around during day and night.
The transportation from Manhattan can become a bit long, especially at night, due to fewer trains running. Consider the 2 nearest stations in two different lines "Utica" and "Kosciusko", since you might avoid some transfers which can be time consuming.
We didn't manage to meet Vernon, but the arrangement with the keys and all the apartment amenities worked very well during our one week stay.
We will definitely consider the apartment if coming back to New York!
The Vernon on Greene was a perfect stay for us! An immaculate apartment that was presented beautifully, in a fantastic Brooklyn location and with a host very close on hand for anything that may be needed.
Less than a 5 min walk to the J or Z train into lower Manhattan, we found the location unbeatable with only a mere 20 min train into the city.
A true slice of Brooklyn with no comfort spared. Would definitely recommend to anyone and would stay again next time we are in NYC.
We really enjoyed staying in Vernon's apartment. Vernon was extremely helpful, the apartment exactly matched our needs; close to the subway, clean, relaxing, cool, with all mod cons (though I only used one of the 3 ways to make coffee - typical Brit! :-) With two children aged 14 and 9 we found Greene Avenue convenient, stimulating, friendly and safe. We'll certainly be recommending 'Vernon an the Greene'. Thanks ever so, yours Angela, Mike, Toby and Joe
Vernon was an excellent host! He was readily accessible via text or phone if we needed him, but also gave us our space which was nice. This was my first experience using this type of lodging so I have to make a conscious effort not to compare this to a hotel or luxury resort (so bear that in mind as you read.) Overall the apartment is very well kept and updated. The decor is nice and modern and other than the bathroom baseboards showing their age and use (hair, dust/dirt) the apartment is very clean. The railing for the stairwell is broken and the stairs are narrow, steep (and plenty) which was a challenge in heels or after a long night. It also made for quite the workout when trying to get luggage up and down the stairs. The only downside to the apartment was really minor--with 3 women trying to get dressed each day we could have used more mirror space! The apartment is super close to the J train which was great since this was our primary mode of transportation. As others have stated its not in the best part of Brooklyn and there were definitely some colorful characters on Broadway (2 blocks away where you catch the train) but everybody was kind and I never felt unsafe. I would definitely recommend this apartment to others!
