Massive sun-filled loft in prime Williamsburg

Williamsburg is also known as the birthplace of the modern-day hipsters, which you’ll notice immediately once walking its streets. Nevertheless, this does mean that the place is filled with nice coffee places and restaurants. You do need to cross the Williamsbridge to visit Manhattan, which will cost you some time but if this means you can wander the streets of Williamsburg that doesn’t even matter. This apartment fits perfectly with that.

Union sq/flatiron studio loft

This is our favourite neighbourhood in New York, just outside the chaotic neighbourhood of Midtown and right in, what feels to us like the real New York. Perfect to get a cup of coffee in Greenwich and walk straight to the Hig Line. This place has it all.

Don’t blame us as this isn’t the most ‘stylish’ Airbnb option but its location is certainly worth it. Located in the same neighbourhood as the first apartment, this is once again the best place to stay in NYC. Don’t take the photos too serious, the interior design is very interesting, but the reviews are great (trust us).
