A beautiful, spacious 900 square foot, one-bedroom loft in the heart of Red Hook. Features exposed brick, lots of light, lots of art, family antiques, an incredible kitchen, a home theater and a yard with a grill. The hourly rate may increase for larger productions and may decrease slightly for smaller productions. The place really is special. Not only is it spacious and comfortable and beautiful but I've taken great care to make it a home. To me that means that everything in it has special meaning and I think you'll get that sense immediately when you walk in. The house only has four units so there's very limited traffic but the other people in the building are wonderful neighbors. The kitchen is a joy to cook in. The island is perfect for hanging or working around. The dining room table is great for big meals and the living room is a cozy dream for musicphiles and film fanatics. I'm a filmmaker so creating such a space was important to me. I'm also a photographer and my work and the work of my family and friends adorns the walls and the rest of the apartment. My place is smack in the middle of the best part of Red Hook and Red Hook is my favorite neighborhood in New York. There are super restaurants and cafes and bars all within a block or two or three. The best supermarket in New York (Fairway) is six blocks away. You also have the oldest (and I think best) bar in New York in Sunny's just five blocks away. And then you're just a few blocks from the water which you can access at a couple different parks. A ferry (which is free on weekends) even takes you straight to Manhattan. There is a B61 bus that stops a block away on Van Brunt Street which runs every 10 minutes and takes you either to the subway stop or Park Slope or to Downtown Brooklyn. The subway stop is the Smith/9th Street stop on the F and G lines and is a 20 minute walk. There is a ferry which is free in the weekends which runs from Ikea and from Fairway (6 blocks away) and from Atlantic Basin (3 blocks away) both to Manhattan, north up the East River to points Brooklyn and south to Bay Ridge. The Brooklyn Queens Expressway is a couple of minutes away by car. And if you have a bike (as I do), everything is close
I expect guests to respect the fact that this is my home and that they are guests in it. The items in the house are valuable to me in every sense and should be treated with care. I expect the place to be left in the state it was found in.
