About the property

Your NYC Vacation

***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 Bedford-Stuyvesant

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.

Great location, great host!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is a few blocks away from the subway. Clean and comfortable beds and Emma is a great host. She had maps and a book that provided information around the neighborhood. I would recommend this apartment to anyone. There are stairs so if you have a lot of luggage, it will be a hike. It is New York so be prepared to walk up and down stairs everywhere.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was great. Quiet location with food and shopping near by. The drive to Manhattan can vary depending on the time of day from 45 mins to 2 hours. If your expectations of NYC traffic are correct you will know this is normal.

Owner's Response: Thanks Jonathan for your positive review. If at all possible, I advise guests to take the subway which has you in to Manhattan in 20 minutes. Traffic is not very forgiving in NYC and so it's a relief that 95% of my guests don't have a car!

Fantastic place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the third Floor appartment and hugely recommend this property. Very well equipped and kitchen, sitting room, bathroom and 2 bedrooms are all in perfect condition and offer everything you could possibly want for a succesful holiday or stay in NYC. Moreover situated in a quiet but very nice neighbourhood, where you are not treated as tourists. Lot's of good grocery and general stores in walking distance (max 5 minutes) and also some excellent local restaurants (all suggested in a nice little guide by the owner). Close to the subway station (450 meters) with excellent connections to all directions. Short summary : don't hesitate, excellent value for money and if we come back for holiday or business this property will be high on the wishlist.

Great stay in Brooklyn

  • 4 of 5

Emma was a great host, she met us at the apartment, was really helpful offering guidance on transport, restaurants, etc. The apartment was really lovely, very clean, and had everything we needed. I would recommend Emma and her apartment to anyone going to New York. It was only a couple of minutes to the subway, plenty of local shops and coffee shops. We had a great week in New York.

Great home base

  • 5 of 5

Clean, comfortable, spacious and surprisingly quiet. Wi-Fi generally good. Easy access to public transit. Lots of food choices in walking distance, and also easy to cook at "home." Plus, Emma was a friendly, accessible host. I would be happy to stay here again and have already recommended this rental.
