Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Brooklyn - Your NYC Vacation

Comfortable and convenient apartment for up to 6 people in NYC!

***You will be greeted with a complimentary bottle of prosecco to celebrate your arrival in New York City!***

Spend your days amidst the hustle and bustle of Manhattan and then take the short trip back to our quiet, well-appointed and relaxing home away from home in Brooklyn. It's so much more comfortable than a cramped NYC hotel room!

Our modern, bright two bedroom and studio apartments are located in a townhouse in the heart of 'Brownstone Brooklyn'. We are situated on a quiet, tree lined street only two minutes walk from the subway for easy access to Manhattan in 20 minutes. The two bedroom apartment overlooks a garden and the studio has its own front garden complete with a bench to sit and watch the world go by.

The apartments are comfortably furnished with everything you need for your wonderful vacation in New York City!

An added bonus!: The townhouse is privately owned by an ex-pat from England. Emma came to New York to live and work, but spent several years seeing the city from a tourist perspective as she explored a new city. If you stay with us at Jefferson Apartments, Emma's experience will be an added bonus - it's like having a concierge on the premises! Emma is on hand to help with directions, restaurant recommendations and off-the-beaten-path tourist tips!

About Emma James

I moved from London to LA in 1994 and then to New York in 1995 and I've been here ever since! I lived for 8 years in Greenwich Village in Manhattan and then moved to Brooklyn in 2002.

Emma James purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Emma James chose Brooklyn

We bought the property because it had a garden and there was more space for our family. Once we moved in, we discovered that we live on the friendliest block in Brooklyn!

What makes this apartment unique

Many people are new to renting a vacation rental as opposed to a hotel. You can rest assured that you will enjoy the experience! I live with my family on the premises and I am here to make sure you have a wonderful stay. I can help with directions and recommendations and any questions you might have whilst you are here. Please email me with any questions and you will see that I respond very quickly!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Stayed at the this excellent apartment for a week just before Christmas - a great time to visit New York and had the best time largely due to our accommodation. It was good to be outside of Manhattan to experience the real NY but conveniently situated for everything. It's 2 minutes from the subway so couldn't have been better. Emma is a great host and recommended the coolest places that wouldn't be on the tourist trail. So best apartment, best location and best host, win, win, win. Thanks Emma.

Pocket sized, but very comfortable and clean

Emma, was very helpful with advice on getting around, and arranging car service from and to the airport. I had a great 4 days in Brooklyn and New York. The location of this lovely apartment was great with a 5 minute walk to the C-line into Manhattan.

Great Apartment in Brooklyn

  • 5 out of 5
Our expectations were exceeded by this greet apartment in Brownstone Brooklyn. It was a treat to come back to our bright, comfortable & clean apartment after a day of sightseeing. This is a great base for exploring Manhattan with the subway just moments away. We especially enjoyed exploring Brooklyn and found the area friendly & interesting with lots of great restaurants nearby. We would highly recommend this apartment to anyone visiting NYC!

Great Apartment in Brooklyn

  • 5 out of 5
My husband, daughter, her boyfriend and I stayed for a week in the apartment. It was spacious, well appointed and had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable and relaxing.
Emma James was so welcoming and friendly. She was helpful and informative but never intrusive. She helped us to locate the local trains to Manhattan, local restaurants and coffee shop (The Corner Grind) which we loved. It served good coffee and breakfasts.
Emma booked our taxi for us on departure. We were sad to leave and would definitely recommend this apartment. We'd come back again too. Many thanks Emma.

Great holiday experience!

  • 5 out of 5
I stayed here last Christmas with family and I can't help but think that it was the perfect place to really see NY. It was very near the train to Manhattan and both the host and the locals were very friendly and helpful. I'll definitely return here when I get the chance.

Perfect base from which to see NY

  • 5 out of 5
We were a family of four staying in the Brooklyn two apartment for 9 days. The place is exactly as described - clean, tidy, well furnished and 2 minutes from the C train up to Manhattan. Emma's welcome and advice during the stay made it a great base from which to explore the city. The neighbourhood was friendly and authentic, a great experience. We will happily return here on our next visit. Emma thanks for helping make such a memorable holiday.

Wouldn't stay anywhere else when visiting NYC

Wouldn't stay anywhere else when visiting NYC
  • 5 out of 5
This was my second time staying in Emma's studio apartment and what a hidden gem it is!

The apartment is clean, safe, comfortable and homely. The locals are very friendly and welcoming with them often smiling at you or saying hello as you pass! Since my last visit a lot has changed in the neighbourhood. There are lots more bars and restaurants and the quality of the local food is very high (particular kudos to Scratchbread for breakfast and Speedy Romeos for pizza). The apartment is well located for both the C and A trains and then you are in Manhattan in 20 mins. It is just far enough out of 'tourist town' that you feel like you are living like a real New Yorker but close enough that you can explore all of the regular tourist spots with ease!

Emma is an excellent host and is very friendly and welcoming. Nothing is too much trouble for her (as we found out one particular night when we needed a computer printer FAST!) and her knowledge of what's going on around you is extensive meaning that you can see more than the average tourist if you so choose!

I simply wouldn't stay anywhere else when visiting NY.

Thanks for everything, Emma :)
