I am a 26 year old female from Michigan. I moved into this apartment with the intention of staying for a few months and ended up living here for 3.5 years. It is a lovely space and Laura is an excellent housemate/landlord. The bedroom is very cozy and has TONS of shelving a drawer space. The location couldnt get much better! Restaurants, shops, bars, coffee, entertainment etc. are right out the front door. I would highly recommend this apartment. Not only is the location amazing, but the apartment has a home feel to it and Laura is very easy to live with. You also get to enjoy the company of little Woodstock. I am sad to be leaving.
I had the pleasure of staying with Laura this past summer (11). The location was perfect for my two internships in the city and is extremely accessible by train. The neighborhood is really residential and has everything you would need.
Laura is an extremely gracious hostess who helped my adjustment to New York tremendously. This is a perfect spot for a low maintenance tenant. The room is cozy with a large bed and a desk area that was great for studying for my GREs. Plenty of drawers and shelves to store your things. I would highly recommend this room.
Laura was an excellent landlord, and everything that she states in the description of both the apartment and herself is absolutely true. Great place to stay while you get on your feet in the city, extremely convenient location.
She really is gone most of the time, and her dog Woodstock is pretty much awesome.
This is an absolutely GREAT place to stay. The landlord is super cool, and really lets you live and let you be. Shes got a cute lil dog, whos not yappy at all, his name is woodstock and hes VERY friendly but not intrusive. Just like his owner. The kitchen is great, theres no microwave, but there is A/C in the summertime. The room is nice, its got a nice view of the street, but theres cable and wifi. Oh, water pressure, is ok. Laundry is nice and in the building. Several coffee shops within walking distance, and lots of restaurants in the area. I loved living here, my only regret is that I wished I could have stayed longer. But my job keeps me moving around a lot. Oh and one more thing, the landlord is pretty straight forward. Clear, clean, no hassle and no double talk or bull. Shes a straight shooter. She means what she says, and she says what she means!
Laura, Has been the most helpful, supportive, and easy going person during my 4 month stay. Without doubt is this place a recommendation for a newcomer to the City or for somebody that is in need of a temporary accommodation.
By the way, Laura is the majority of the time busy with work or cycling - so you nearly own this place. Note, that it is a very convenient location, close to all the goods things that made Brooklyn the best place to live in NYC!
