Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Roosevelt Island

Enjoy your stay in Brooklyn in our light-filled Greenpoint apartment. The private, railroad-style apartment occupies the entire 2nd floor of a 3-family home. It is fully furnished, charming family home. The master bedroom, with queen sized bed, overlooks a quiet, tree-lined street through bay window. There is a large playroom just off of the master bedroom stocked with games, childrens books, and toys, along with a comfy armchair. The office has a small sofa and desk. There is an extra full-size mattress that can be set up in this room or the playroom if needed. The kitchen is set up with a gas stove, microwave, coffee maker (or french press), food processor, blender, and table with seating for 4. The kitchen is fully stocked with pots, pans, dishes, cutlery, and anything else you made need to cook or bake. The living room has a comfy couch, rocking chair, plenty of books, DVDs, and music, as well as a flat screen TV with Roku. There is free WiFi throughout the space. The bathroom has a full bath/shower. Nearly every room has at least one window and the apartment fills with beautiful light all day.

We are located just two blocks from McGolrick Park on a quiet street. We are a quick walk to delis, laundromats, fantastic new restaurants and bars, groceries, boutiques etc.

As far as transportation, we are close to G train (Nassau Stop); L Train (Bedford, Lorimer, Graham are all walkable options) and for buses the 48, 43 and 62 are all quickly accessible. We are a quick cab ride (15-20 minutes) from Laguardia airport, with fare being around $25-30. JFK Airport is just a bit further at 30-35 minutes for a cab ride, with fares around $35-45.

There are 2 shabby, loving, old family cats onsite, so please no more pets. Cost of rental can be negotiated with renter if agreement is made on looking after the cats, otherwise, a caretaker will be dropping in every day to check on them.

About Kara

Though I was born and raised in New England (New Hampshire, more specifically), I consider myself a California girl at heart. After studying at Boston University in the astronomy and physics program, I transferred to Emerson College to pursue a lifelong love of art and media. From there, I moved to San Diego, where I spent four years running my own underground booking agency, creating posters and album art, and hosting a weekly pirate radio show. After that came a year in San Francisco, which was completed with a cross country drive with my cats and some books and records, and then I settled in Brooklyn. I live in this wonderful apartment in Greenpoint, with my five year old daughter, Clementine, and those same cats. Occasionally, I still go to shows and sometimes sing in bands when people let me. I work in the enthralling world of health care advertising as an art supervisor and write stories in my spare time. I love exploring the world, so I travel often (for both work and pleasure), and try to bring Clementine with me whenever possible!

Kara purchased this apartment in 2008

Nice place to stay

  • 4 out of 5
Hi, my husband and two young children (3.5 and 6.5), decided to visit friends in brooklyn and rented Karas apartment for three nights. We had never stayed in nyc before and were looking for a quiet location, walkable, easy access to public transit and places for the kids to play. We also wanted to atay someplace where the kids could play. The apartment was quite comfortable, in a great location for needs, quiet area for nyc, plenty of things for the kids to play both in and out (there was a parkxlose by). We really appreciated the use of karas daughters toys. The cats were easy. The only downside for us as country mice was the shades werent adequate for blocking the streetlights. Im sure plenty of people would be ok with the light, it was difficult for us to sleep with. We would definitely stay there again. Thanks kara!

Owner's Response: So glad you and your family enjoyed your stay. Apologies about the shades, I suppose it's something I've grown accustomed to, but will definitely look into changing. It's so nice to hear that you found my place to be comfortable and a nice place to stay during your trip. We look forward to hosting you again!
