This unique home is a gorgeous setting for a real Brooklyn experience. Situated less than two blocks from the R train, which goes directly to Times Square in Manhattan, this is a taste of authentic New York.
The house has two full floors: the ground floor has a living room (with cable TV and high speed WIFI), a separate dining room, and a large galley kitchen with dishwasher. Upstairs are three bedrooms - one with a pillowtop queen sized bed, one with a standard full bed, and one with a crib, suitable for a toddler with room for a cot for bigger people. The bathroom with bath/shower is located upstairs.
The house is filled with art and light, and beautifully decorated with midcentury modern details. It is quiet and cozy, and a lovely place to come home to.
The neighborhood has wonderful restaurants all within one or two blocks. There is an artisanal coffee shop with a kids play area, a superb sushi restaurant, a classic American steakhouse, a delicious bagel shop, the best pizza in Brooklyn, and several pastries shops that vie for the prize of most excellent cannoli. There are also several super markets, a wine store, a butcher shop and a pharmacy. For families, there is also a playground and a library right nearby.
Walk a bit further in the neighborhood and you will find fantastic Middle Eastern restaurants (one with a Michelin rating), several great bars and Mexican restaurants, plenty of Irish pubs, and several shopping options, including the world famous Century 21 discount designer department store. Walk ten minutes to the promenade that runs along the New York Harbor for stunning views and cycling.
This is an excellent home base for those looking to explore a well-loved part of Brooklyn, with all the convenience of home and a subway ride straight to the heart of Manhattan. Bay Ridge is a Brooklyn gem that will charm you.+ More
