We arrived in Brooklyn to meet Coretta and pick up the keys. She talked us through the apartment and was happy to answer our questions. Many useful items were available in the flat and Coretta left us water and juice for our stay which was nice.
The flat is great value for its size and proximity to Nordstrand Ave station which takes you into Manhattan or to the JFK airport connection which worked for us. Safety was not a issue, we travelled back late most nights and found people in the area very helpful.
It was minus temperatures during our stay but the flat was warm and cosy throughout. There was a little noise from the bathroom during the night which was reduced by closing the door, not a massive issue though.
If you are looking for a great value place to stay, which offers both an authentic feel of Brooklyn and being close to Manhattan and the very cool Williamsburg this is worth a look. mehr
