We stayed at Mayor Mansion for 5 nights at the start of our 3 weeks holiday. We loved the feel of the Brooklyn appartement. Great location close to 3 subway stations that take you to Manhattan in less than 20 min. Good breakfast, lunch and diner restaurants and grocery stores nearby. Leo and Claudia have a great eye for detail...

I recently stayed in this Forte Green apartment while having a six day trip from the UK to New York. It was just as the owner had described, clean, well furnished, safe, quiet and well placed for the subway to Manhattan. The owners live in the building and this was very reassuring for first time visitors to the city. Forte...

My husband and I, our daughter and her boyfriend stayed here in Oct/Nov 2015. It is a comfortable, clean, spacious apartment with every necessary amenity and perfect for 2 couples, or family of 4 and we felt very safe and secure there. It was the most wonderful place to return to after a hard days sightseeing; sufficient comfortable chairs and...

About the neighbourhood
Our neighborhood, Fort Greene, is very close to Manhattan (we are just two blocks from a subway station), but feels much more comfortable. It's quiet and spacious, with tree-lined blocks filled with historic 'brownstone' houses from the 19th century.

There is a beautiful park designed by the same people who designed Central Park, a local farmers market, a famous flea market, and plenty of cafes, restaurants, and fancy food stores. You can search online, as there have been many articles written about our neighborhood. Also, AirBnB has neighborhood guides you can look at.

As for transportation, you can get to Manhattan very easily via subway. We are two blocks from the 'C' train, and 7 or 8 blocks from the 2nd largest subway hub (after Grand Central) in the city,...
Getting around
The best way to get around New York is by subway. We recommend google maps to help you plan your subway trip. You can also of course use taxis and ride hailing apps.
