This apartment for rent is a duplex with 2 bedrooms, going from the basement to the second floor of a 3-story (equivalent to the European 2-story) townhouse dating from 1899, situated in the Brooklyn neighborhood of Park Slope, New York. One of the best parts of this apartment lies in the access to a private garden, where the usually pleasant New York City weather will enable you to make the most of your stay.
Perfect for families, this 2000 SQF (185 m²) two bedroom apartment features an additional sleeping alcove in the basement (Living Room 2), and a variety of utilities for young children, such as a portable crib, a toddler bed and high chair. The apartment has a vast living room that is open to the kitchen, directly connected to the garden, meaning that you will have plenty of space for common activities, and the option of having a meal outside certainly is appealing. The living room is bright and colorful, thanks to numerous windows giving north on the garden and south on the street. This combines nicely with the colorful furniture to bring out the welcoming side of this apartment. The open kitchen will display most necessary appliances when it comes to cooking, and from there the dining tables inside or outside are only footsteps away. There is a half bath on the ground floor, and both traditional bedrooms can be reached by climbing up to the second floor, and where a lovely bathroom with a marble-lined tub/shower is found. The basement (Living Room 2) offers a double bed and convertible futon bed, and can be used as a sleeping alcove or recreation room, offering privacy from the upstairs bedrooms. The washer and dryer are also in the basement.
This two bedroom furnished apartment is situated on Carroll Street & 5th Avenue in Park Slope, only 4 blocks away from Prospect Park, the biggest park in Brooklyn. There are many opportunities to stroll around, jog on one of the numerous tracks or just accessing the sports fields all over the place. You will certainly enjoy the possibility of visiting the Brooklyn Museum (second largest arts collection in New York), borrowing a book from the extensive collection of the Brooklyn Public Library, or admiring the wildlife at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden or the Brooklyn Zoo. Concerning daily needs, Carroll Street is mainly residential but 5th Avenue, just around the corner, is a main thoroughfare of Park Slope, with plenty of stores, shops and restaurants. A good pick for dining out would be 200-Fifth (3 blocks), with a choice of American and Continental meals, or perhaps Al Dilà (1 block) and its tasty Venetian cuisine. There are also many schools in the area, and a set of “Brooklynian” landmarks are within reach, for instance the Old Stone House (4 blocks), dating from all the way back in farming history of the area.
The closest NYC subway station is only 3 blocks away on Union Street / 4 Avenue (0.3mi/450m) and will give you access to the R line, which will take north towards Manhattan or further south toward Bay Ridge. The 2/3 lines and the B/Q lines are also easily accessible, found a bit further on 7 Avenue / Flatbush Avenue (0.6mi/1km).
