Luxury 2BR Flat in Prospect Heights Brooklyn - (We do not travel in August)

Visit New York City from the comfort of Brooklyn, easy walking to neighborhood restaurants, cultural venues, and virtually every subway line in NYC. And only 10 minutes by subway into Manhattan.

Our huge flat (170 meters squared) is a duplex on the third floor of an elevator building, just one block from the Barclay's Center.  On the upper level there are two large bedrooms, a home office, an exercise machine and a full bathroom with jacuzzi tub and a separate shower. On the lower level is an open plan living space with two seating areas, a TV, a dining area, chef's kitchen and another full bathroom.   The style is modern, yet very comfortable.

Please note that inside the flat there are stairs to the upstairs and stairs to the downstairs, so it is not a friendly flat for visitors with mobility issues.

Our building was a printing factory built in the early 1920's, where the New York Daily News (a tabloid newspaper) was printed.   In the 21st Century, the building was converted to loft/flats with 24 hour concierge service and an excellent security system.  We share a fabulous roof deck (1550 meters squared), a fitness room and a laundry room.  You are welcome to use these amenities (you do have to pay for the laundry machines) during your visit.
 
Please, no children under the age of 10 - the flat lacks safety gates on the windows and does contain breakables.  

We have made been using Intervac to make great vacations since 1996. We have made exchanges to Paris, Rennes, Montreal, London, Sevilla, Bruges, Berlin, Marseilles, San Sebastian, Copenhagen, Stockholm, Athens, Amsterdam, Lisbon, Valencia, and Rome. We are always looking for another adventure.

Brooklyn is where everyone wants to be. Our Intervac guests have said they have only gone into Manhattan once or twice on their whole trip!    But whether you stay in Brooklyn or whether you go into "the City," (Manhattan), our flat is perfectly situated for all your explorations.

There are 9 different subway lines that stop within 3 blocks of our home - there is even a Long Island Railroad station.  And public "Citibikes" are just a block away, so that you can hop on and off a rented bike as you explore New York if you want. 

We are in the Prospect Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn, at the intersection of Park Slope and Fort Greene.  We are within walking distance of most of Brooklyn's main attractions - Prospect Park, Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn Botanic Gardens, Brooklyn Academy of Music, Theatre for a New Audience, Mark Morris Dance Center, the Fort Greene "Brooklyn Flea" market.  We are just a short bus or metro ride from the Brooklyn Bridge, the Brooklyn Heights Promenade, Brooklyn Bridge Parks, DUMBO, Building 92 in the Navy Yard, and all the interesting and diverse neighborhoods that make up Brooklyn.  We will leave you plenty of maps and guide books so that you can find your way around and explore what you find interesting.

Brooklyn is home to many different neighborhoods, each with its own character. As for eating, we have a renaissance of quality food production (tortillas, ramen, beer, gin, sausage, chocolate, etc.), and we have many, many excellent restaurants that cost, in general, far less than Manhattan.  You can walk to lots of great places from our flat, or you can explore nearby neighborhoods. Don't miss the enormous farmer's market every Saturday at Grand Army Plaza, where you can buy local produce, bread, cheese, fish, meat, and grains.  Join the locals before 10 a.m. when the best ocean fish is already sold out. And if you want your food already prepared, you can't do better than the Brooklyn Smorgasburg, now with lots of locations.

Perheestämme

I am a lawyer/mediator and also an artist. You will find many of my ceramic pieces in our home.  My children Madeleine, age 29, and Samuel, age 31, are now living on their own, but we do like to travel together on occasion. I also often travel with my brother and his children, or with friends. Our dog, Rossini, is 2 years old, but we will have friends care for her during travels unless someone especially wants that responsibility.
