Every first Saturday of each month, the Brooklyn Museum has free family events, including arts and crafts, live music and a dance party.

Please NO parties keep a loud music loud talking loud movies down in the late-night in order to keep the building quiet thank you
Simple but clean, safe, quite , close to the subway , several grocery shops around. Only negative point is the bathroom which is a little bit worn out, still clean. Would stay there again !
A decent, if basic, apartment in am up-and-coming part of Brooklyn. It's close to lots of subway options. Bring an eye mask - there are no curtains to block out the bright morning sun!
Minha estadia foi ótima, Edgar foi muito solícito e esteve disponível sempre que precisei. Não tivemos nenhum tipo de problema com a casa. O bairro é amigável, e a casa é bem localizada perto da estação de metrô. Além disso o comércio ao redor era bom, e não precisávamos ir muito longe para comprar as coisas que precisávamos.
Nice, big and clean apartment. It was very good to stay there.Thanks for it!
We didn't meet Edgar but everything is all set for us! The kitchen got everything we need. And the room is big, but the heater is not so even lol. Parking on street is not so easy but Edgar's friend help us find a spot! And the location is good,3 minutes walk to the nearby metro station and the neighbourhood is safe , the nearby grocery is awesome,got fancy milk and organic food! The TV has no program maybe we don't know how to use lol...
I highly recommend staying at Edgar's place in Brooklyn. Not only was the apartment spacious, but it's located in a great area. Very safe neighborhood located near subway. You can catch the 2 or 3 train nearby into Manhattan. Edgar was really helpful with any accommodations. He helped make the stay as comfortable and enjoyable.
Ich und meine Familie (phone number hidden)) sind vom (phone number hidden) bei Edgar im Appartement gewesen.
Bei unserer Ankunft erwartete uns eine unbekannte Person, welche lediglich von Edgar geschickt wurde. Edgar bekamen wir auch im Laufe der Woche nicht einmal zu Gesicht.
Die Wohnung befand sich in einem schmutzigen, unbewohnbaren Zustand. Es waren keine Bettdecken, Bettlaken oder Bettbezüge vorhanden und erst nach 1 1/2 Stunden (mittlerweile war es in New York 23 Uhr) bakamen wir schmutzige, stinkende Bettdecken die, wie wir vermuten, aus einer Altkleidersammlung stammten (vor der Tür stand ein alter Wäschesack mit weiteren unebnutzbaren übel riechenden Decken).
Als wir das Badezimmer betraten ekelten wir uns extrem, da der Duschvorhang zerfetzt und verschimmelt war. Auch der Rest des Badezimmers machte einen ähnlichen Eindruck.
Die Schlösser der Wohnungstüren waren alt und teilweise bereits komplett morsch, sodass die Wohnung nicht gerade einbruchsicher war. Zudem lag das Badezimmer außerhalb der Wohnung und besaß kein Schloss, was ungünstig war, da in dieser Woche in dem Haus Handwerker arbeiteten.
Die Wohnung war sehr kalt und auch nachdem wir Edgar gebeten hatten die Heizungen anzustellen, wurde sie nicht merklich wärmer.
Die Darstellung der Wohnung hier im Internet entspricht nicht der Wirklichkeit. Die Fotos müssen aus guten Winkeln geschossen sein und aus einer Zeit in der sie noch in einem besseren Zustand war.
