The NeighborhoodStraddling the neighborhoods of Bushwick, Brooklyn and Ridgewood, Queens, the house is 5 blocks away from the Dekalb Street 'L' train station in Brooklyn—one of the best subway lines in the city. Union Square, the heart of downtown Manhattan, is only 15 minutes away via a direct subway ride; Williamsburg, Brooklyn's stylish boutiques, bars and restaurants are only a 6 minute train ride away. Ours is a quieter, more residential neighborhood—it is safe and ethnically diverse, with plenty of it's own charms—like local Italian bakeries, Halal butcher shops, Equadorian bodegas, Polish food markets and the best tasting Mexican tamales we've ever come across. In recent years, the conversion of a number of buildings and factories in the area to artists live/work lofts has brought a huge influx of businesses—including cafés, pizzerias, galleries, and stylish restaurant/late-night lounges, all of which are walking distance from the apartment.

Dekalb L Station in Bushwick, Brooklyn
Jefferson L Station in Bushwick, Brooklyn
