Only a short walk to both subway lines. With a lot of shops, bars, restaurants, and nice parks around. The heating is fine, the living room is spacious and stylish. You get used to the nypd and fire dpt sirens after a few days. The landlord may seem a little picky at first, but once you start living there, he is quite cooperative and helpful.
The area was great. We spent a month over Christmas & New Year at this apartment and enjoyed the neighbourhood very much. Lots of restaurants, cafes, bars/Irish pubs, grocery markets. We walked everywhere. The apartment is clean and it was warm. A tough landlord - no bargaining. Steve & Maureen (Australia)
