Our family-friendly brownstone garden apartment with modern furnishings is a great home base for your visit to New York City, with a big backyard for the kids to play and adults to relax. You're steps away from cafes, restaurants, 11 subway lines, the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM), the Shakespeare Center and Barclays arena. Getting in and out of Manhattan is a breeze, as you're 15 minutes by subway from Chinatown and Wall Street and less than 30 minutes from midtown.
“We had a lovely stay! The apartment was clean and comfortable and Amadou and his wife were very communicative. The neighborhood is absolutely tops.” - Gabriel
“GREAT location to get in/out of NYC via subways. Comfy, spacious, attractive apt w everything we could need. Amadou was a helpful & friendly host. Would stay here again!!” - Noel
“I can't rate or recommend Amadou's place highly enough. I don't think we were ever on a subway for more than 30 minutes getting around NYC which is just perfect. The apartment itself was clean and spacious and gave us a taste of living like a local in Fort Greene. All in all a big thumbs up from us.” - Lisa
“Our experience at Amadou's place was fabulous. Clean, welcoming, and cozy. The location is also perfect--near all of the trains, great restaurants and shopping nearby. I highly recommend this place!” - Lauren
“We had a great stay at Amadou's place. It was very clean and the perfect size - even with four people. It has a great location and is close to plenty of restaurants, cafes, and subway stations. I would recommend it to anyone visiting Brooklyn or Manhattan. Thanks Amadou!” - Trevor

Fort Greene is a neighborhood with great restaurants, live theater, an art film cinema, and performance venue. There's a weekly farmers market alongside Fort Greene Park, which has fields, tennis courts, a running path and playgrounds for both toddlers and the 10-and-under set. Local shops selling everything from handmade ice cream to vintage fashions stretch along Fulton Street and DeKalb Avenue and the local bookstore features readings from world-renowned Brooklyn-based authors. The Barclays Center, a ten minute walk from our front door, is home to NBA and NHL teams and is the tour venue for acts from Bruno Mars to Barbra Streisand. At once family-friendly while offering a great night out for singles and couples, Fort Greene combines modern day New York with classic Brooklyn architecture.
Our block is relatively quiet with little foot traffic and the landscaped backyard offers privacy as it's shielded from street views. Fort Greene is a vibrant and diverse neighborhood that we've called home for almost 20 years. We're more than happy to give you tips on great restaurants, local gems, and how to live like a local.
