This limestone home has been carefully taken care of since it was built in 1910. The neighborhood of Stuyvesant Heights is home to many families including my own. We enjoy the neighborhood feel, the magnificent New York architecture, the independent coffee shops and trendy restaurants. The A Train is less than 100 ft. from the apartment and your trip into the city will take approximately 25 minutes. Clearly, Brooklyn itself is a destination and you will be right in the center if you choose to stay at the Reading Room Suite.
We look forward to having you enjoy the neighborhood as many, many travelers from around the world do every day! Have breakfast in the Reading Room Suite or in one of the many neighborhood eateries before setting out on your day to explore all that New York has to offer.
Warmest regards, Jason
Jason purchased this apartment in 2007
Our stay at The Reading Room was great.
Right from the start we found Jason to be excellent at communicating with us, always responding to emails/ questions. Then when we arrived he met us and helped us settle in. The apartment was perfect for a family of 4, very comfortable and well appointed. The useful fact sheets of local amenities were very beneficial and Jason's recommendations were spot on.
The location was just what we needed for our short stay in Brooklyn/ New York, close to the subway meant easy access to Manhattan.
As a family of four with two teenage girls we were a little apprehensive about staying on the outskirts of the City in Brooklyn, but how wrong could we have been.
We arrived after the long flight and a cab ride (with a wonderful Taxi driver) and were met by Elizabeth, Jason's Mum what a lovely lady. Elizabeth took us through everything we needed to know about the property the area travel etc etc, you name it she had it covered.
The property was much larger than we first thought and very well equipped with everything you would want (even a small back yard with patio furniture) the place was great.
We travelled into Manhattan every day using our 7 day Metro cards (really good value) sometimes going in and out twice and using them to go up and down Manhattan from the Battery Park at the bottom to Central Park at the top. Jason and his mum Elizabeth are lovely people and you feel instantly at home, Brooklyn's immediate area was really surprising with a Park at the end of the road (where the subway started) a few restaurants, Peachy's was great the first night and Daddy Greens Pizza shop was amazing food and really friendly people.
Would definitely recommend Jason's apartment and the area for your Manhattan trip. Wonderful experience. Nice people, good value and easy travelling, great place. Get off at High Street on the subway and walk the Brooklyn Bridge for great New York Sky Line images. All in all great place and people will definitely come back.
We can only find compliments for our stay in the Reading Room Suite in Brooklyn. The apartment was comfortable, stylish, spotlessly clean and somewhere to look forward to getting back to after a day in New York.
Jason was an excellent host who even came out near midnight to rescue us when our taxi driver couldn't find the address.
The location is very convenient and close to the A Train, which makes getting into Manhattan easy. Importantly, the bed is very comfortable. Full washing facilities makes it easier for travellers.
We readily recommend this apartment to anyone spending time in NYC.
It is a pleasure to recommend this great affordable apartment.
We are a family of 5 with 3 kids ages 6 11 and 13.
The location is perfect just 2 min walk from A train. Lots of parking in the area. The apartment has everything you need it looks like new and is cozey and super clean.
Jason was so amazingly nice and helpful and went out of his way to be nice.
We loved every minute and we will recommend it to all our friends.
Me and some of my nursing school friends came to NY back in August and stayed in a nearby VBRO and loved it. This time around we knew we wanted a place in Brooklyn again and when we stumbled across Jason's place it seemed too good to be true! It was affordable and convenient. The little area of Bedford-Stuyvesant is so quaint and just like you'd picture NY streets. Jason was very hospitable. There were an abundance of linens, extra blankets, water bottles, and little snacks. Jason's place is 2 mins from a subway station that took us anywhere we wanted to go. The station was even located in a beautiful little park! Jason even had a list of recommended places to get a bite to eat in the area. We loved the local bakery with fresh pastries and coffee. We could not have asked for a better experience and would go back again and again! Thanks for a great week, Jason!
Our stay at the Reading Room Suite was truly wonderful! Four of us stayed at the suite for 6 nights. We were out touring the city most of the day but is was so nice to have a place to come "home" to. The suite was impeccably clean and the towels and linens were fresh and clean smelling. The subway station was just a block and half away which was very convenient. Jason was very helpful at check-in and showed us how everything worked. He even brought us cake one evening! The only issue was the street parking, we had to move the car every other day for street cleaning but that was a minor inconvenience. I would definitely recommend staying at the Reading Room Suite.
