Come stay in my private apartment located in the heart of Greenpoint, Brooklyn! This private, clean 1 bedroom is located on the entire 2nd floor of a 3 family building.
The apartment is located on a very quiet, tranquil tree-lined street, yet 1/2 block away from amazing restaurants, bars, shops, laundromats, grocery & 24-hr convenient stores on trendy Franklin St. so you get the best of both worlds!
If you decide you'd like to venture out to Manhattan, it's super easy! There are plenty of options to get you to there quickly:
1) We are 1 block from the East River Ferry, the best way to both get around & see the city. A 10 minute, cheap & spectacular boat ride to Midtown Manhattan (on 34th street). 5 other stops going to all the great Brooklyn and Manhattan destinations: Wall Street, Dumbo, Williamsburg, Long Island City and on weekends to Governors Island. You can do an Internet search for East River Ferry for more info.2) We are 2 blocks from the Greenpoint Avenue G (Subway) Station.
3) It's a 10 minute walk to the 7 train (Subway) over the Pulaski Bridge which brings you to Grand Central Station and Times Square in 5 min. (total approx. travel time 15 min)
There is one large queen sized bed with a beautiful view of the back yard garden. The comfy couch can also sleep 1. In addition, we have a queen sized air mattress if you prefer.
Children are definitely welcome! We have a high chair, pack-n-play and plenty of toys available upon request & all are always free of charge.
Linens, towels, basic paper products and soap/shampoo/conditioner are included. On street parking is free, safe and widely available most likely in front of our home.
The bathroom is clean and new and has a tub/shower, toilet & sink.
Kitchen is equipped with a fridge, sink, gas stove, pots & pans, toaster oven, coffee maker, coffee grinder, kettle and blender. We have plenty of dishes/cups/coffee mugs/utensils as well.
Wi-Fi and Satellite TV included. Satellite TV has 259 channels as well as HBO, Showtime & Cinemax in case you want to stay in and take it easy.
This is a super clean newly renovated private 1 bedroom on a quiet block. You really can have it all here, quiet when you need it but minutes away from all the action!
Getting to our apartment from the airport is also a breeze:
-Laguardia Airport is 7 miles from the apartment. It typically takes 15-20 min. for a taxi/car ride. Taxi fare is approx. $23-25 (both dependent on traffic)
-JFK Airport is 15 miles from apt. It typically takes30-35 min. for a taxi/car ride. Fare approx. $35-40 (both dependent on traffic)
-Newark Airport is 18 miles from apt. It typically takes 35-40 min. and is around $50 for a taxi (both dependent on traffic)

Loved my week here, was a pleasure to return here after a huge day out & about. The area was quiet, the neighbourhood felt safe & I was happy to walk back from the subway by myself at night. The apartment was exactly as it looked in the photos & was close to the subway, restaurants, small supermarket & the ferry was at the end of the street. Communication with Lisa was easy & no issues arriving or leaving. It was nice knowing I could ask questions if I needed to but it was also nice having my own space!! Will hopefully be back one day & would recommend to anyone to stay here, you won't regret it.

My girlfriend and I have visited NYC this time for a weekend. The apartment is newly renovated, cozy and tastefully furnished. It*s located in close proximity of metro and east river. There is even a ferry boat which takes you either to midtown or south street seaport. We absolutely loved it!

From the friendly greeting from our host Lisa on arrival to the lovely appointed apartment with everything you could possibly need along with the fantastic location in Greenpoint(just a 5minute stroll to the East Point ferry which for $4 will take you from Upper To Lower Manhattan and all points between).Away from the hustle and bustle yet so close to all the action that New York has to offer.A hidden gem we were lucky to find.A heavenly bed and terrific shower and bath and modern kitchen adds to the vibe of this little gem.Thank you Lisa for your hospitality.
