My adult family of 3 enjoyed our stay in Brooklyn. The apartment is an easy walk from the subway. Access from JFK was via cab and only about $50. LaGuadia on our way to Canada was less.
The apartment is located in a quiet, safe area with many great examples of local houses in the surrounding quiet neighbourhood streets.
The subway into Manhattan is easy to get to and takes about 30-45+ minutes depending how far uptown you travel.
We spent a lot of time in Brooklyn Heights to eat at the many great bars and eateries.
Highly recommend the apartment if you are after a “lower cost than Manhattan” stat in the Big Apple.
This apartment was a perfect choice for us. Very clean, comfortable and large in a friendly and safe neighborhood real close to the subway so we could move around the city quickly. We loved Prospect Park (so much better than Central Park!) and thoroughly enjoyed getting to know the area and Brooklyn generally, yet still being able to ride into Manhattan in no time. We will definitely recommend this apartment to friends and family coming to New York City.
My mother and I spent 6 days at this apartment. First of all, accessibility, it is at walking distance from Subway and from pretty much everything, Food, Stores, Theatre, market, park. Second, it's about 30 minutos from Manhattan with comes handy for planning activities at downtown.
The place itself is comfortable, the kitchen fully equipped and the internet connection does the job. The owners are really helpful.
I will look for this place in future visits.
Bright, spacious and happy apartment. We were surprised at how clean it was and kitchen had everything you could possibly need. This is so much smarter than renting in Manhattan like we did last time. The area is really interesting and we loved the close proximity to Prospect Park and your recommendations were spot on!
