Having been to NYC before we wanted to stay in Brooklyn for this visit. This house in the diverse Bed-Sty district was warm, spacious and very comfortable; well-appointed and close to public transport. Only 5 minutes walk to the local C line and 10 minutes to an express A line subway station. Around the corner was a great natural foods...

Reviewed 18 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Stayed in this for one night having booked 4 nights. Couldn’t lock the internal doors and felt very uncomfortable about leaving our stuff knowing someone was living on the top floor. We left after one night to realise we could have spent the same money for a hotel in Manhattan and be round the corner from Times Square.

Management response:

We're truly sorry that you left before we had a chance to talk or to show you that all the locks work. Our house is 100% safe and the person on the top floor has no access to any of the guests' rooms

About the neighbourhood
The Neighborhood: Recent NY Times review of the neighborhood sums up the essence of this stunning, vibrant and constantly changing historical neighborhood.


Located in the historic district of Bedford-Stuyvesant; today a vibrant urban Caribbean/African American community (sandwiched in between the fascinating Hasidic areas of Crown Heights and Williamsburg), only 15 minutes from the Barclay Center, Prospect Park and Brooklyn Botanical Gardens/Zoo & Museum of Art. Nowhere else can you find such luxurious, spacious living, in the heart of New York City and only a 20 minute subway ride to Greenwich Village. the neighborhood is quiet, neighbors are warm and very friendly and you will find...
Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: JFK: 9.0 km
Railway: Kingston-Throop subway: 0.2 km
The ride from JFK to our house is approximately 40 minutes.
The city charge a flat rate from the airport to Brooklyn, which I believe is now $52
This would certainly be the easiest and most convenient way.

Your best value would probably be the airtrain (free) to the subway (2.75 each) . but it would take over an hour and then another 5-7 minute walk from the subway to the house. Our closest subway is Kingston-Throop on the C line.

You also have the option of supershuttle ($15 each) - but that would stop off at several destinations before you got to the house.
