Live like a local in the heart of Brooklyn.
Sun-drenched one bedroom. Exposed brick. Stainless steel appliances. Washer/dryer. WiFi. Steps from Brooklyn Museum, Prospect Park, Brooklyn Botanic Garden and 2/3/4/5 subway lines.
Franklin Ave. is just down the block and your go-to for dining and drinks.
BKW is a great spot for a casual dinner. The wine bar has locally made vino and an outstanding double cheeseburger.
After dinner, stop by Chavela's for the pepino margarita, then head to Franklin Park and try your hand at skeeball.
End the night at Crown Inn with a New Pal (bourbon, campari, sweet vermouth) or craft beer and join the motley crew of locals at play.
Three-minute walk to the 2/3 and 4/5 train lines.
Ten minutes to see the Brooklyn Nets at Barclays Center.
Twenty minutes to lower Manhattan.
I'm a Brooklyn-based journalist! I write long-form story about true crime, war and adventure. My recent reporting trips have taken me to Uganda, Congo and, most exotic of all, Orlando.
I've lived in Crown Heights for three years and have fallen in love with the neighborhood. I work around the corner from my apartment at a co-working space as well.
Among my obsessions: squash, rosé and riding my bike around Brooklyn.
