The space

ASK ABOUT OUR SPECIAL MONTHLY PRICING for This renovated 3 bedroom apartment in Bed-Stuy Brooklyn (the neighborhood that brought you Jay-Z, Lil' Kim, The Notorious B.I.G., Big Daddy Kane, Mos Def, and was home to the first Black American Major League Baseball player, the legendary Jackie Robinson), offers spacious, modern living in a historically rich and diverse but tranquil neighborhood packed with beautiful brownstones on tree lined streets. 15 mins to financial district/Statue of Liberty Ferry, 40 mins to mid-town/Times Sq. Travelers can get here from JFK via the A Train Utica stop ($7) or the B15 Bus ($2.50) which stops at our corner. (The bus may take longer)

Reviews: Please don't be confused by the reviews here on Air BnB. There are reviews about our current apartment and our PREVIOUS apartment. That previous apartment is no longer available but it should give you an idea of the level of service we offer and our longstanding relationship with Air BnB. We take pride in providing the best lodging for our guests.

Note: We have recently finished renovating this garden apartment. The garden itself has not been landscaped yet but there is an outdoor deck up stairs you should feel welcome to use for hanging out and BBQing. We are in the process of accessorizing the apartment so it's a bit Spartan at the moment but still cozy and immaculate. If you are in need of any amenities that we have overlooked, please just let us know. We live right upstairs and will do our best to accommodate any and all reasonable requests in a reasonable amount of time.

Note 2: We keep a high security deposit for large groups. If you're a small group staying for only 1 week...just ask about it.

Note 3) As always when traveling on Holiday, be aware of your surroundings. Search on the internet about the neighborhood you're considering! Brooklyn is a wonderful place full of some amazingly nice people. But it is not Disneyland. We will advise you upon arrival about any safety concerns or areas you should avoid in Brooklyn. (Other boroughs...we can't help too much there.) But this is New York city...try not to look like a tourist...ask us questions and use basic common sense that you would use at home or in any other urban area.

Interaction with guests

We live right upstairs. You can always text, call or email us...or just come upstairs and ring our bell. Just wait a little bit and ring again. Sometimes we don't hear it right away.

Getting around

We use the Utica station. That's the A Subway train. It's express. 5 stops from Manhattan. It's about a 8~12 min walk to Utica station down a nice street with bars/restaurants and shops, then through a lovely park. Teedo rides his bike to work in lower manhattan in 30 mins. The train takes a little longer because of the time to walk to the station. But you can get to Manhattan pretty quickly/effortlessly. There's also buses, uber/Lyft/Way2Go, and Citibikes are right at the corner.

I stayed 9 days at Saeko and Teedo's "the putnam" with my son. Tha apt is excellent and exactly as you see in the pics. Very comfortable and with everything you need in a visit to NYC. The neighbourhood is fine and you'll find everything you may need around. The only con (we already knew about it) but let's say a mild one, is the distance to the subway station Utica and sometimes the time it takes to get to Manhattan. We didnt meet the owners (personally) but always responded by mail. Recomended.

Saeko & Teedo were wonderful hosts! My husband and I eloped in NY and Saeko went out of her way to make our stay special. Our party of four had a very comfortable stay and the neighbourhood is full of character and charm! The suite is extremely clean and newly renovated and close to homey restaurants & cafes. We loved our time in Brooklyn!

The hosts made a great welcome. They are uncomplicated and open. The neighborhood is very nice for people who likes Brooklyn and or people who want to make a great experience in Brooklyn. By subway it takes you only 35 min to Manhattan. We enjoyed!

Our stay at the Putnam was fantastic. We loved staying in Brooklyn, it was close to everything. Times Square was only a 10 min walk to the subway then a 20 train ride. The Putnam was very well presented and had everything we needed for our stay! Thank you so much and we look forward to staying again some day. Will recommend to family and friends!

We shared our previous penthouse apartment with many travelers from all over the world, from Grand Parents to Teenagers, from Saudi Arabia to California, USA...then we sold it. Now we are introducing a new fabulous 3 bedroom, The Putnam, in a wonderful, up and coming neighborhood in Brooklyn, with the same level of service and attention to detail as our previous apartment.

We're busy new yorkers so we might be able to see you only a few minutes a day but if you need any information about NYC, we will be able to assist you in having many enjoyable experiences in NYC. Either one of us speaks French and Japanese, you might be able to guess which one speaks Japanese...
