Why Lisa Schumann chose Brooklyn
I have lived in New York City for the last 14 years and came to love this neighborhood. I just love that it is a family friendly area with lots of fun things to do

Great home base for NYC sight seeing
This property served as an excellent jump off point for our four days in the city. It is a fairly quiet neighborhood with everything we needed, living-wise, within a few blocks. Transportation via metro was also close and accessible. We took the ferry (one block away) to Lower Manhattan one day and it was faster, as cheap, and much more scenic than the subway. The apartment is a bit tight, but that is the case with pretty much anything you'll find in the city. The kitchen had what we needed and some basic cooking supplies. Air conditioning was only in the bedroom, so we needed to crank up fans in the living area for the kids, but they slept well.
Fun weekend in Brooklyn
We really enjoyed our stay at this property. The location is a short walk to bars, restaurants , parks and subway. Lisa was very nice and check in was a breeze. Hope to go back again.
Wonderful apartment and location!
4 days 4 nights in Greenpoint, visiting NYC with 2 kids, 7 and 5. They loved the property so much they never wanted to leave, ha ha. Subway access and trains were very easy and manageable, and a great variety of shops for groceries and meals within walking distance. I loved that it was quiet and peaceful after spending time in the bustling streets of Manhattan. We loved our stay :)
Great location. Nice neighborhood. Everything we needed and good communication.
Quaint little home.
Beautiful quaint apartment. The owner provides so many amenities, that it makes the trip very comfortable. The street is just around the corner from the ferry and that helped us to get to Manhattan. It’s the perfect place for your New York trip.
Check this one out
The apartment is terrific. Plenty of room. Super location in a quiet neighborhood. Very clean. Just a short walk to the East River Ferry and I certainly suggest this form of travel to and from the city. Nice grocery store nearby and subway a short walk. Who could ask for more. Really did enjoy my stay. Great retreat after a full day of seeing the sights.
