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.

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.

A very good stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Emmas apartment in June and had a great time. The apartment has everything you need and was in very good condition. We walked to Williamsburg (but we are a walking family...) or went by subway to Manhattan. It took us about 20 min to there. Emma is a very good and helpful landlord. This is a stay we highly recommend! We had a lovely stay.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Its not easy to find the right place to be in NYC when you cant afford a first class hotel-suite in the center of Manhattan. Right from the start this offer sounded good and whats more: thrustworthy. Especially for a family of 4. Emma was always quick to answer. The apt is easy to find from JFK and easy to go to Manhattan, Metro just 2min to walk. The apt was just as described. Clean, tidy and fully equipped for a pleasant stay. Absolutely sufficient supermarket right around the corner. Emma is easy and has always some useful informations if you want to. The neighbourhood is quite and safe, even when returning late in the evening, but not hip. Time to Manhattan downtown is OK. We would highly recommend this offer as it is well balanced between size, prize and distance. It was a great time and we really enjoyed.

The apartment was a good size for a family of 4. It was clean and had everything we needed including extra bedding and towels. Emma was a great source of local knowledge and we found plenty of coffee shops and reasonably priced restaurants nearby. For a great breakfast we recommend Tom's and you must try the cheesecake at Junior's. Emma was very helpful and accommodating especially when we had a change in flights. We had an amazing week and recommend the apartment to anyone.
