A PERFECT GETAWAY! LOVELY APARTMENT AVAILABLE ON A QUIET STREET IN NYC!

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.

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

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 :)

Comfortable and Clean

  • 5 out of 5
Great stay in Brooklyn. The apartment is comfortable and clean with good transport to Manhattan and beyond all for $2.50 a trip. City Island is worth a day trip for the scrimp dinner alone. Emma is really helpful and welcoming. Walking around Brooklyn is great a real taste of New York.

Comfortable, clean and affordable.

  • 5 out of 5
A family group of six adults, we spent two weeks here over Christmas and New Year. Emma had warned us we may feel a little cramped but we found the space to be comfortable. Having only one bathroom required a little forward planning but was not a problem.
The apartment was clean, well equipped and serviced, warm, quiet and pleasantly decorated. We were pleased we had made the decision to stay in a quieter area.. Downtown Manhattan was easily accessible by 20 min subway ride and the nearest subway was just around the corner. The neighborhood was interesting, felt generally safe and friendly, had all the necessary amenities and some good restaurants.
Emma was friendly and helpful from the time I made the booking. She was very accommodating with our very early arrival and departure times, respected our privacy but was accessible if we had any queries and was a wealth of information on 'everything' we asked. Made life easier!
With several 'foodies' in our group we ate out most evenings. Our best restaurant in NYC recommendation is PUBLIC - exceptional food and service. We ate here on Christmas Eve, wonderful for special occasion. Our best local vote goes to Alice's Arbor. A short 3 min walk from the apartment, always open it seemed and food is consistently good, prices reasonable for everyday.
I would not hesitate to recommend this apartment to others. It is not luxury but it is safe, warm, pleasant and comfortable and came to feel like 'home' over the two weeks. We were very happy!

This apartment was perfect for our one month stay in NYC. It was clean, spacious, attractive and conveniently located. Our host, Emma, was welcoming and had lots of good advice and suggestions. The neighbourhood was colourful and friendly.

Nice and cosy apartment for couples

  • 5 out of 5
Stayed in the small apartment for two during Christmas and New Years (2009-10). Small but very clean and nicely decorated (we even had a small christimas tree). We would recommend this studio for couples. Many shops and takeaway restaurants just around the corner. Metro is approx. 8 minutes away. Emma was really helpful when planning our trip. We had a lovely time in NY.
