Photos and Description of this 1 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

We have just stayed in the studio apartment this september and found it very comfortable with everything we needed including a coffee maker, fridge, microwave and iron. It is in a perfect location for Manhattan which we found it very easy to travel to and from everyday, with 2 subway stations nearby. Emma and James were extremely helpful before and during our stay, willing to answer any questions that we had. I would definitely stay here again and recommend this place to anyone wanting a great quality holiday at a budget price in NYC.

Fantastic Base for 2 from which to explore NYC

  • 5 of 5

Great host, prompt with replying to emails. Very helpful.

Apartment was clean and comfortable. Well set up with basic kitchen (make breakfast or a drink/ serve up take out - perfect for us). Bed and TV were well used after a long day exploring the city.

Subway stop, grocery store, laundry, coffee, take out and good restaurants all within 1-2 blocks. Would have liked a little folder of take out menus/ list of good restaurants in the area. Did manage to find a gorgeous little Mexican restaurant 3 mins walk away. Lovely neighborhood with friendly people.

We arrived late at night and left early in the morning. Emma was more than accommodating and made it very easy. I have visited NYC before this trip and found this a much better experience than staying in a hotel. Would recommend to anyone visiting New York.

Owner's Response: Thank you for writing this review. I am pleased that you enjoyed your stay. Best wishes Emma There is a folder in the studio with lots of information about local restaurants and things to do in New York. It includes links to websites where you can order in food. We are very spoiled for choice when it comes to food delivery in New York and can literally order in from hundreds of restaurants! Future guests--please text me the minute you need additional information and I will respond!

Perfect Location. Live like a New Yorker!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Emma's studio apartment for a week over the New Year period. The apartment is well equipped for 2 people. We had all the facilities to make our breakfast before heading off exploring each day. And when we came home in the evening to the lovely warm studio (considering it was -11 outside) we could relax with a glass of wine watching a movie on the TV before a good night's sleep in the very comfy bed. Facilities around the apartment were very good. It's only a 5 minute walk around the corner and you're at the Subway entrance that runs direct into Manhatten every 10 minutes and only costs 2.75 $ each journey which is amazing considering what we pay for transport in the UK. We found a lovely Organic Juice Bar on our way to the Subway and enjoyed trying something new each morning. We also found a great bar serving all different kinds of beers and ciders and a restaurant within 2 blocks of the apartment which was so good we ate there twice! I must add the people of Brooklyn are so friendly. On New Years Eve we walked to Grand Army Plaza at Prospect Park in Brooklyn where they had laid on Fireworks at Midnight as well as serving Hot Chocolate and there was a band playing all for free. Walking home everyone constantly wishing us Happy New Year. We felt very safe indeed. Overall I would give Emmas's studio flat 5 out of 5 stars for giving us the opportunity to live like a New Yorker for a week which I much prefer than staying in a characterless hotel room for a week. Thanks Emma for your hospitality including arranging our cab back to the airport on our last day.

Very nice and comfortable apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is small, but comfortable enough for two people. Has everything necessary for a vacation in New York. Emma (the owner) was very nice and attentive. There are a few grocery stores very close by and the subway station is just 2 blocks away and a subway ride to mid manhattan takes about 20 min.

When we arrived, everything had just been thoroughly cleaned and we were allowed a late checkout the day of our flight. I'd really recommend this place for the price/quality relation.

Lovely apartment, perfect for two!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a fantastic time in New York and the studio apartment in Brooklyn was a perfect base for us. It is exactly how you see it in the photos, clean and modern. Emma was very helpful, from the initial booking up to when we needed a taxi booked to the airport. Nothing was too much trouble.

The apartment was in a lovely, relaxed street not far from some brilliant bars/restaurants and shops and the metro was only a couple of minutes walk up the road. It only took around 15-20 minutes to get into the centre of Manhattan. After lots of walking around New York it was nice to get back to the quiet apartment to chill out!

If you are looking for a cheaper alternative to expensive hotels, I would highly recommend staying here!
