I had a late night flight into the city on arrival, but David was super accommodating of my unusual check-in time. The room and the experience were exactly as described, and I greatly enjoyed my stay.
Lovely apartment in Greenpoint. Central to a great choice of cafes bars and boutique stores. David was very prompt and helpful even though he was ill. Highly recommend staying here.
Super Appartement, très bon secteur, et très sympathique! Encore merci pour tout!
David was a very nice and helpful host. The neighborhood is super safe, the beds are really good and the rooftop is mind blowing. Especially if you are not only interested in midtown it is a really good spot to visit greenpoint, Williamsburg and other Brooklyn neighborhoods.
David was a wonderful host. He was very responsive, sent me information about the neighbourhood and managed to get me the keys at 11:00 am instead of 3:00 pm. The apartment was very clean and the bed was wonderful. One complaint was about not being able to flush toilet paper as the plumbing couldn't handle it. I guess that comes with the 1912 building. It was also extremely quiet in the apartment. Lots of shampoo and other sundries too.
David was away for most of my trip, but was a cool dude when we met. His communication was on point. From the moment I booked he had given me all the information I needed & responded really quickly.
Had a nice stay at his spot. Room was as described [accurate photo] and is actually a little bigger than it appears. Nice view of Manhattan.
Clean bathroom. The gym type multi shower [gang shower] was fine and powerful, I never ended up sharing with anyone.
Clean kitchen utensils, microwave and kettle [never ended up using the fridge but I'm sure it was fine].
Greenpoint felt like a safe neighbourhood.
G Train was close, a couple blocks away [6min walk] took me 20-30mins to get to Manhattan which varied depending on where I was going.
It basically felt like I had the place to myself.
Two things to be mindful of:
There is no door on the room (at the moment, that could change at some point I guess) it's a curtain, so you can't lock the door because there isn't one. Theft could be an issue but nothing of mine went missing, people shouldn't be stealing on AirBnB but the world is a harsh place. I locked my valuables away.
The apartment is on the fourth floor with no passenger elevator/lift so if you have heavy luggage (like I did) make sure you let David know in advance so you can use the freight elevator/lift because the stairs are big steps and if I wasn't a gym guy I would have struggled to get up those stairs with my stuff but I was certainly sweating by the time I got to the top, it wasn't easy.
All in all, I'd recommend it. Good value for money.
A fun place to crash just over the river from Manhattan. As described, it's a shared living space, so those of you very concerned with privacy probably wouldn't feel comfortable; but if you want a truly unique experience with a friendly host, you will love it as I did.
The lift didn't work, so David helped me up some of the three flights of stairs with my bags. He was in the middle of renovations, so the induction was minimal. The building itself is old and unrenovated, so bear that in mind - the floors creak, the roof leaks and it's pretty funky in all senses of the word. To me that makes it feel more real and provides a genuine NY experience. There are five bedrooms in the loft and the space and it's very resonant, so bear that in mind as well. The room has glass brick windows and no direct ventilation, but you kind of get used to it. The view of Manhattan from the lounge room and roof is spectacular, although you can't take a chair up there. The location is great with the subway only a couple of blocks away and the main drag providing most of the things you'll need. The area itself felt perfectly safe, even late at night. If you're broad-minded and after a real NY experience, give it a try.
This was my first experience with Airbnb, so I cannot compare. The house was beautiful and it is interesting to see how David has made it according to his own special style, I loved that! The view is gorgious from the window and rooftop. But I did not know before that there was no door in my room, nor in any other rented room of the loft. It made it also noisy in the room, people have to pass by that room to leave the house. David was friendly and waited for me when I arrived quite late.
I would have liked some more information from him, and I missed a simple introduction to the people that lived in the house at that time.
This room now has a door and I put a carpet down. Both of which help cut down on the noise. I wish I could have done this while Anja was a guest but my timing was off.
Lawrence was very kind and helpful. He made our experience in brooklyn very easy and affordable.
Lawrence is a great guy. Fun, funny and a gentleman. He's very easygoing, knowledgeable about the city, and his place is certainly unique, as others have commented. I'd recommend staying with him, he's very accommodating! I ended up staying for more than 2 months in total!!
This is a fantastic apartment! Not only is area full of hip stores and restaurants, Lawrence is helpful and friendly from the moment you book a room. He makes sure you have clear directions to the neighborhood and is ready to give you advice on things to do and directions around town. Oh yes, the rooftop view is NOT to be missed!
Love to visit New York as often as I can, when there I always stay at this modern greenpoint location. the neighborhood is becoming very hip and you can also get to manhattan very quickly. the price to stay is so reasonable and lawrence is an amazing chef, if he is not too busy to cook for you. thanks for the memories. love you, babe.
Lawrence is a creative artist with an eye for finding beauty in the mundane. He is an amazing entertainer. It is easy to have fun when Lawrence is around. He is a great storyteller can always make you laugh. He is loyal to his family and friends. You can always count on Lawrence to stick up for you.
I loved staying with Lawrence. The loft is comfortable with a beautiful view of the city, and of course Lawrence is a wonderful host - attentive, generous, and welcoming - as well as a fantastic cook!
Lawrence is a friend and a neighbor--I'm lucky to live down the hall from him! He is great to talk to about everything--movies, art, music, and a good source of information and interesting stories. I know from experience that he is a charming host!
Lawrence is a great host, and a funny, engaging, and generous friend. He made me great coffee AND fixed my computer the last time I stayed with him.
