I just put up new photographs because I have changed quite a bit.. I need to get brighter photos... Also, I have been told many times that the apartment is much larger and nicer than it appears in photos (maybe I need a photographer).
Large one-bedroom apartment in Williamsburg, Brooklyn all to yourself! Third floor walk-up in four-story building (only 8 units). The building is really secure with two front doors, video surveillance in all of the common spaces- hallways, stairs, basement, yard, etc. Also, nice, normal, human neighbors.. Big plus in NYC.
Included in your stay:
-Clean and new bedding
-Fresh cut flowers
-A complete breakfast
Air Conditioning in both rooms!!!
You have full control of the heat/cold for the apartment (rare in NYC).
Full kitchen with dishwasher, microwave, large sink, oven, counter space and dining nook. Complete with all the tools, dishes, etc to serve an entire gourmet meal (dessert included)!
Spacious living room with 42" flat screen, DVD player (w/USB port), appleTV (netflix + huluPlus + HBOgo), wi-fi hard drive with tons of great movies, surround sound, XL sectional sofa (ottoman +fitted sheet+pillow top = queen size bed). Optional airbed available..
Large bedroom with Queen size bed, large closet and a large desk- wireless turbo internet.
Bathroom with full bathtub, great water pressure and a large vanity.
Washer/Dryer in the basement and a shared backyard w/barbeque grill, patio table + chairs.
In terms of travel convenience, I might say this is the best spot in Brooklyn.
10-15 min subway to Manhattan:
3 blocks to Broadway G
4 blocks to Lorimer JMZ
7 blocks to Lorimer L
Very close to the Williamsburg bridge. I'd estimate a cab to lower Manhattan (les, tribeca, soho, noho, east village, chinatown, west village, chelsea) at $10-$15. Really good street parking.
Williamsburg and Bushwick have become even more trendy than the East Village- I remember back when I was a teenager, this neighborhood wasn't so hot- now, its a destination! Tons of art, the best food and the greatest cross-section of people. The neighborhood keeps getting more and more popular everyday. Tons of new apartments on the block just in the past few months. And, with new buildings come lots of new shopping and great food and bars within walking distance. Just ask and I will provide you with suggestions on where to go, eat, drink, shop, play, and see...
If you're interested in nightlife, I can help with that too (I'm a NYC native and have been a promoter since high school).
We're really close to LaGuardia Airport and JFK (public transportation to both and under $30 cab)..
My friends tease me about having "grandma taste"... I like cozy. A lot. I hope you do too.
