At the heart of the Cobble Hill historic district, we are offering since 2006 the spacious parlor floor apartment of our 1840 house, styled to give a mid-19th century feeling with modern amenities. Our street is tree-lined and quiet, yet merely a block away you'll find restaurants and cafes, movie theaters, antiques shops, all kinds of gourmet and Italian food stores, and more.

The apartment is ideal for parents visiting their children or grandchildren in the neighborhood, for business travellers or as a base to explore New York. Midtown Manhattan is 20 minutes away by subway. The kitchenette is fully equipped. With its 12' ceilings and original stencils appearing through the colored plaster, the parlor conjures up the romantic charm of the Greek Revival period. Its earth tones make for a restful decor after a day out.

Accommodation

The studio apartment is a spacious and bright room overlooking the quiet backyard garden. Adjacent to it is a sitting room that can be rented additionally to form a suite. An extra bed is available in that room (twin size). In all, we can accommodate 3 people.
The apartment is independent from the rest of the house. Once we give you the keys, the place is like your own. We just ask that you return it "broom clean" at the end of your stay.

Getting around

F and G trains are 3 blocks away; 2, 3, 4, 5, N & R, a 7-10 minute walk. Midtown Manhattan is 25 minutes door to door.
LaGuardia and JFK airports are within 25-35 minutes by car. Newark is at 45 minutes (allow more for traffic conditions).

Things to do and see...

Great shopping and countless restaurants nearby: Court Street and Smith Street, Atlantic Avenue, Brooklyn Heights and Carroll Gardens are a short walk away! 2 movie theaters, bookstores and Antique Row on Atlantic Avenue are all within 5 minutes walk. Parks and playgrounds are just around the corner and all the way to the Brooklyn Bridge. Cobble Hill and Brooklyn Heights are rich in architectural treasures.
Our favorite stroll follows the Promenade in Brooklyn Heights with its breathtaking views of the Manhattan skyline and continues on to cross the Brooklyn Bridge on foot: 2 miles total and you are in downtown New York City! Many local residents walk or bike to their lower Manhattan offices.

While Manhattan is nearby, Brooklyn has plenty to offer, from the collections of the Brooklyn Museum to the Botanical Garden and the Prospect Park Zoo, to the rides and beaches of Coney Island. Many neighborhoods have a unique ethnic identity and offer local flavor in many forms. Most locations are easily accessible by public transportation.

We're looking forward to hearing from you.
