About Jason

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

Jason was very accommodating and flexible. Property comfortable and clean. Close to metro. Safe area

It's in a basement, without windows in the common area with the hideabed, so it's easy to oversleep!

Helpful and friendly hosts.

Good value.

Owner's Response: Hi Janice, thank you for your review! The Reading Room Suite apartment is located in the lower garden level of a historic limestone house. The common area allows light through the blinds of the front door. The sun comes up late in the winter and it is easy to snooze after a long fun-filled day. I'm so glad that that you found the apartment to be convenient, safe and a great value. Please visit us again in the future :)

  • 5 of 5


Stayed from Oct. 24 -31 2017. Family of six . Children 15 , 11 and 8 . We really appreciated coming home to Brooklyn after being in Manhattan all day running around. There is a great convinience store just a block away and an Italiann bakery near by great for coffee. Jason was awesome !! The house has everything you need . AC .. a lot of towels and is just great overall ..We totally recommend it . We were visiting from Mexico and enjoyed getting a feel of the normal life in Brooklyn did some really good shoping in Brooklyn too. Thank you Jason for everything.

Great property in a good location

  • 5 of 5

The property was great. Very spacious. Very comfortable. We were right by a subway stop so getting into the city was easy. Had to search a bit for parking and keep an eye depending on the day, but we did ok. Jason was awesome. Very friendly and helpful. He met with us when we got there and showed us how to get into the city with the subway. He had a map of NYC so we could see different trains. It was a great stay and would love to go back.

Owner's Response: Hi Annette, It was great meeting you and your husband. The subway is super convenient and I'm glad that you were able to travel easily. There is parking readily available on the street. (It is certainly a lot easier to park here compared to other parts of Brooklyn.) However, depending on the length of your stay, you may have to move your car to the other side of the street to allow for street cleaning. We do take the time to clearly explain the parking rules to each guest who drives in to stay with us. It would be great to see you again in the future :)

Girls weekend in Brooklyn

  • 5 of 5

Awesome apartment, safe neighborhood, great weekend. Jason is wonderful and was very responsive to our every need. We have been to New York a lot, but never stayed in Brooklyn. The apartment is one block from the subway and a short trip in to the city. Every amenity you could ever want is here. You can pack light and shop more.

Owner's Response: Hi Faith, thank you for your positive feedback! It is always great for us to welcome close friends who are here to have a great vacation in New York City. I am glad to hear that the short walk to the subway was convenient for you and your friends. The A Train is also very convenient. It is one of our major subway lines that runs express to Manhattan. We hope to see you on your next trip to NYC. Best, Jason
