It's a nice, artistic, and beautiful apartment. Has an amazing view of New York City!
Although my flight landed earlier than the check-in time, David was accommodating and provided clear directions to get to the location. And once you reach the roof, the views are spectacular! It's fairly close to the metro which makes going to Williamsburg, DUMBO, or Manhattan, a breeze. I saw David from time to time, and he was always cordial.
Since this was summer, my sleeping area was actually quite hot, so protip: turn on the fan as soon you get there and let the air circulate. Also, to slow yourself going down the slide, simply lean forward and put more pressure on your foot.
There are actually 4 other sleeping quarters, one of which is for David. I didn't mind since I was out most of the day. But I didn't really have a place to put my stuff so it ended up sprawling at the end of the slide. Also, since there is only 1 restroom for potentially 7 guests, it could be a challenge sometimes (I didn't mind it either).
The place is neat, spacious, and in a great location. If you plan on seeing the city most of the day, you can't go wrong with this loft. Plus, it's way more interesting than a hotel, and cost way less. I would say this loft probably isn't right for someone who is high-maintenance.
Good location and directions.
Thanks for David to host me.
David was really helpful and nice, I really enjoyed the stay.
David made it easy to arrange check in, his place is original and beautiful, my friend and I had a perfect stay. Greenpoint is amazing, the apartment couldn't have been better located for us.
House is clean and David is nice.
Really enjoyed my stay and conversing with David whenever we overlapped in the apartment.
David was a great host very flexible with timing the location is great point to explore Manhattan and Brooklyn from as well
Williamsburg was totally worth a visit. I felt very comfortable living at David's place. Everything was easy to arrange. I had an amazing view from the Loft and the rooftop is cool af. I loved to climb up the slide and it's really cozy up there in the bed. And a big plus for the ultra high waterpressure in the shower. Totally recommend it!
David was a great host and always available in person or by phone if needed. Fun place to stay in great location.
Lawrence is a very solid person, hospitable, accommodating, generous, and fun to talk to and hang out with. A great place to stay!
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.
