|Address||A Monroe St, 11221 Brooklyn, United States|
|Property type||Private room|
|Response time||A few hours|
A charming, modern, and spacious 2 bedroom apartment with eclectic decor in a quiet building and historic neighborhood, adjoining the Stuyvesant Heights district in Brooklyn, NY (designated a historic district by the NYC Landmark Commission). The living and dining rooms separate the two bedrooms, thus providing plenty of privacy. Guest(s) stay(s) in one bedroom while host stays in the bedroom across.
Both the bathroom (which faces the backyard) and kitchen (which faces the street) are modern and both get beautiful light as well. The living and dining rooms are furnished with an eclectic mix of modern and antique furnishings. Large TV monitor and excellent audio system at your disposal. CD collection of classical, jazz, world, and R&B music.
The entire apartment and building was renovated just over a year ago. So it's quite new. For those traveling by car, there is plenty of street parking available.
My place is located on the 2nd floor, a short and easy walk-up a flight of stairs. It is a pleasant 12-minute stroll on a beautiful tree-lined street, to the subway station which is frequently serviced by express (A line) and local (C line). Only 15 minutes on the express subway line to Manhattan.
Lots of public transportation options in the 'hood: at least 6 bus lines service the neighborhood (B52, B26 and B25 to Fort Greene and downtown Brooklyn, B15 to JFK Int'l Airport, B46 Limited Stop and Local Stop services to Williamsburg, and, B43 to Greenpoint). If you don't feel like walking to/from my place to/from subway stop, you can take the B15 FROM the subway station or take the B46 TO the subway station.
During specific times of the year ONLY, the guests in the shared private room will have the entire apartment available on a completely private basis (i.e. only the guests will be occupying the apartment); The available dates for this private arrangement:
May 13 - 17
May 23 - 26

August 30 - Sept. 1
Nov. 22 - 29.

Please refer to a different listing to book the entire apartment for 3 to 4 guests for time periods stated above: https://www.wimdu.com/offers/8XD3BPPX.
As for detour-worthy restos in the 'hood, SARAGHINA (a casual and excellent Italian resto, just 5 blocks away) is highly recommended. Other suggestions include CELESTINO (a casual Italian resto also a mere 5 blocks away) and PEACHES (a casual resto serving cuisine from the South - think soul food - about 7 blocks way). For bars, there are excellent drinks at SARAGHINA's intimate bar and there is also THERAPY (also 5 blocks away). For reliable sandwiches, salads, pastries, coffee, there is a Cafe, a sister property of PEACHES (just two doors down from the resto). There is also very good restaurant called HOTHOUSE located 7 blocks away that serves an "urban" interpretation regional American classics from the South. It is another sister property of the highly regarded PEACHES restaurant.

Reviews of this property
The apartment was very clean. The room was great with a big and comfortable bed. The apartment is well-located (7-8 minutes from the Subway station Utica A-C) and the neighborhood is very quiet and safe. We could even park our car for free for 5 days without any problem !
Jerry, the host, was very friendly and he will give you some very helpful recommandations in order to improve the quality of your trip in New York ! He is a very interesting person and very open minded. My girlfriend and I truly appreciated our trip and staying in his apartment was a very good idea.
Don't hesitate anymore if you are looking for a very nice place in Brooklyn, Jerry's place is the best ! And if you like italian food, go to Saraghina !
Thank you Jerry for everything !
We (3 men) have spent 4 nights at Jerry. Jerry has a nice, clean apartment in a 3-party house that is located in a safe and clean area of Brooklyn. Our car we could easily park on the street. In 10 minutes you can walk to the nearest metro station (Utica). With the high-speed railway line of U.Bahn can be reached in 15 minutes downtown Manhattan.
We had a bedroom alone for us. Together we were able to use the kitchen, living room and bathroom. Jerry on read us his entire apartment and had to us a lot of confidence. For breakfast there was fresh coffee, good bread, butter and jam.
Jerry is very friendly, helpful and gives a lot of useful tips.
We can highly recommend Jerry and his apartment and would definitely come again.
Wir (3 Männer) haben 4 Nächte bei Jerry verbracht. Jerry hat ein schönes, sauberes Appartement in einem 3-Parteienhaus, das in einer sicheren und sauberen Gegend von Brooklyn liegt. Unser Auto konnten wir problemlos auf der Straße parken. In 10 Minuten ist man zu Fuß an der nächsten U-Bahn-Station (Utica). Mit der Schnellbahnlinie der U.Bahn erreicht man in 15 Minuten Downtown Manhattan.
Wir hatten für uns alleine ein Schlafzimmer. Gemeinsam konnten wir die Küche, Wohnzimmer und Bad nutzen. Jerry überlies uns seine gesamte Wohnung und hatte zu uns viel Vertrauen. Zum Frühstück gab es frischen Kaffee, gutes Brot, Butter und Marmelade.
Jerry ist sehr freundlich, hilfsbereit und gibt viele nützliche Tipps.
Wir können Jerry und sein Appartement sehr empfehlen und kommen gerne wieder.
Cosy, clean, cozy and it feels really good. 15 minutes from the Subway. And thank you to Jerry for his home and his confidence and all this attention!
Appartement chaleureux, propre, cosy ou l'on se sent vraiment bien. 15 minutes du Subway. Et encore merci a Jerry pour son accueil et sa confiance ainsi que toutes ces attentions !
So happy and lucky to find Jerry's cosy flat thanks to Windu. Very well situated in this charming Brooklyn, typical , calm and in the same time so closed from Manhattan ( 20 mins subway ). The last but not least is the real meeting with Jerry !
So thoughtful, nice, discreet, open ect..thanks a lot Jerry for your warm welcome.
We really enjoyed our stay at Jerry`s place.The apartment and our sleeping-room were beautiful and very quiet.The bathroom looked brandnew and was absolutely clean.Jerry was a very friendly host.He offered us breakfast and fruits and even shampoo etc.He gave us a lot of useful recomandations for exploring the city and he was an excellent babysitter while we were packing our bags:-)
With the express train we were in Manhattan in about 15 minutes.The next metrostation is a few blocks away,but we felt very safe walking there, also during the night.Thank you for everything,The Grillis
We had a nice and pleasant stay at Jerrys apartement. Our expectations were far exceeded. Jerry is a friendly, approaching, helpful and experienced host, who offers just the rigt near-distanz ratio. The apartment is very aesthetically furnished and a real comfort zone. The neighborhood is very quiet and therefore a balance to the pulsating life in the city and only a 20 minutes ride by tube away from Manhattan. The nice, brooklyn style house is situated in a calm and picturesque alley. We also enjoyed our stay at the "Summer Cafe" and "Peaches". We plan to stay at Jerry again.
Jerry ist ein super netter und hilfsbereiter. Wir haben uns von Anfang an sehr wohl und willkommen gefühlt. Des weiteren war seine Wohnung auch zugleich wie unsere. Ich kann einen Aufenthalt bei Jerry nur weiter empfehlen.
Gerne wieder :)
Es war ein sehr schöner Urlaub. Jerry war ein sehr guter Gastgeber mit vielen hilfreichen Tipps, zur Erkundung der Stadt. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt, auch die Nähe zur U-Bahn war angenehm.
Nuestro anfitrión fue muy atento desde nuestra llegada al piso. Conoce muy bien Nueva York y sus rincones, haciéndonos muy buenas sugerencias para conocer la ciudad desde otro punto de vista. Sus desayunos fueron geniales!!!
Es War alles wie beschrieben.
Jerry hat uns ein Schlafzimmer überlassen und mit einer weiteren Matratze ausgestattet für unseren kleinen Sohn.
Er War sehr Auskunftsfreudig und man konnte immer New York Insidertipps usw. Erfragen.
Das Frühstück bestand wie angekündigt aus Kaffee Brot Butter und Marmelade.(alles hochwertige Lebensmittel) Jerry hat soviel Milch für uns gekauft das wir auch den kleinen Mann mitversorgen konnten.
Das Bad War sehr sauber und die Wohnung auch immer gepflegt.
Der Duschkopf gibt etwas wenig Wasser so dass man mit längeren Haaren etwas Zeit braucht.
Der Weg zur Bahn dauert etwa 10-15 min und die Bahn braucht ca 20-30 min bis Manhattan(sehr häufige schnelle Verbindung).
Sehr weiterzuempfehlen bei Jerry zu wohnen.
