About this listing
Check out all my listings! :-) Please note, I don't accept reservations more than 3 months in advance...
This is a very unique, historic space right on the East River! Available for only a short time until the antique store re-opens; the space has been emptied and converted into a comfortable apartment while still retaining the charm of the boutique.
The Storefront is a lovely & light-filled space on the ground floor of a waterfront rowhouse with a big private garden in Brooklyn's booming Greenpoint Historic District, on the riverfront just north of bustling Williamsburg. Walk to the Bedford "L" subway stop, or just a few blocks to the Greenpoint "G" stop. East River Ferry service (with multiple stops in Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Queens) is 2 blocks from the building, on the India Street waterfront, and many bus lines cross through the area as well. Plenty of restaurants, bars, boutiques, cafes, galleries, banks, gyms, etc all within blocks.
800 completely open interior square feet. This building was a loving & complete gut job from top to bottom, with all new electric and plumbing, but every effort was made to bring historical detailing back to this late 1800s commercial space. The Storefront features beautiful salvaged wood floors and a fantastic mid-1800s tin ceiling that was brought in from an old schoolhouse! You will find a cozy living area, a comfortable Queen-sized bed, a dining area with a basic kitchen (electric 2-burner cooktop, sink & refrigerator), a separate lavatory and an open-space clawfoot tub. (Note: a handshower attachment & hand-made copper ring enclosure have been installed, will update photos ASAP!) You'll also have exclusive use of the 1200 sq ft lovely landscaped garden, a true luxury in the city! WiFi access. There is a window A/C unit and an efficient ceiling fan, and there's generally a nice breeze off the river, too. There is no television in this rental, because you have better things to do here in NYC!
Commercial & residential dead-end street, terminating at Transmitter Park on the East River. Please be aware that this street is both commercial & residential; while the noise level is normal for NYC, this is not a "silent" apartment.
Privacy & comfort await!
*please note: you will have exclusive use of the garden during your visit... depending on the length of your stay, you'll likely be asked to water the plants when the weather is warm... :-)
I have a few listings available in this wonderful neighborhood, if you click on my profile you can check them all out.
Thanks for looking, and we look forward to hosting you in fantastic Greenpoint!
**PLEASE NOTE: under NO circumstances is there to be any shooting/filming of any kind on the premises. I do periodically rent my spaces as locations for film & photo projects, but never at the standard Airbnb rate and never without a Certificate of Insurance. If you are interested in shooting, please provide me with all of your project details and we can potentially come to an agreement. Any unsanctioned shooting will be heavily penalized.
Everything at the Storefront is pretty self-explanatory! I'll ask you to please adhere to local recycling rules, and will provide the proper receptacles.
Check-in is any time after 2pm and check-out is any time before 11am, but I aim to be flexible whenever there aren't other schedules to juggle; let's be in touch directly regarding your timing.
You are more than welcome to have your friends over and I certainly want you to enjoy your stay, but please no big parties & no groups of total strangers :-)
Have a wonderful visit!
