About this listing
Central Greenpoint - Polish neighborhood that has everything in food, drink, shopping, and art.
Great natural light and details in this unique and quirky artist's home. Excellent bakery right downstairs.
Two blocks to the G train, 10-15 minute walk to Willamsburg and the L train or East River Ferry.
Greenpoint is Salt-of-the-Earth NYC - and I know because I grew up here!
Treat my home like your own, please be considerate of neighbors, and most of all, Enjoy your Stay!
Located in the rear of the building, it's quiet and has beautiful morning sunlight. Air conditioned, neat and clean.
Guest(s) will have full access to a full kitchen, bath, and sleeping room.
Interaction with guests
When I am hosting, I occupy the far end of my apartment, which is accessed by a separate, second door. So: I'm available and nearby if you've got a question, but if not, you'll never know I'm there.
Great neighborhood. Really.
Hundreds of bars and restaurants within walking distance, and most of them are very good to excellent! Movie and TV shoots almost every week, and conventions and expos regularly - from WFMU vinyl record fair to brooklyn furniture shows to Greenpoint open art studio weekends to outdoor concerts in the famous McCarren Park.
Take a non-linear walk around Greenpoint and just explore in any direction and you will find NYC's best coffee (really, and there's serious competition), mixed drinks, top shelf pizza, traditional Polish food, burgers, soul food, etc.
Clothing and record shops galore, from low end to high end. Furniture and decor shops too. Neat breakfast nooks just a block away.
Creature needs: three laundromats within a one minute walk, post office and police department two blocks away, fresh green grocers, true gourmet shops, and traditional supermarket all two minutes or less.
Subway one block away, see below :)
My place is serviced most immediately by the G Subway train, which can take you through most of the great neighborhoods of western Brooklyn, from Red Hook to Long Island City. The G at Greenpoint Avenue is just a block away, and at Nassau St just two blocks away. Manhattan's Union Square or Grand Central 20 minutes. 25 minutes to Port Authority or Penn Station. An hour to La Guardia, 70 minutes to JFK.
Green Cabs and Black Cars abound. and North Williamsburg is a ten to twenty minute walk, depending on where you are going.
Rental cars are ubiquitous.
