Basement with complete laundry room. What more do you need?? This house is a gem of a find! Hipster Bed-Stuy Recent NY Times review of the neighborhood sums up the essence of this stunning, vibrant and constantly changing historical neighborhood. So many exciting restaurants and cafes opening up it's impossible to keep up with the changes. including famous Peaches and Saraghina pizza/bakery. Make sure to visit our local farmer's market! Located in the historic district of Bedford-Stuyvesant; today a vibrant urban Caribbean/African American community (sandwiched in between the fascinating Hasidic areas of Crown Heights and Williamsburg), only 15 minutes from the Barclay Center, Prospect Park and Brooklyn Botanical Gardens/Zoo & Museum of Art. Nowhere else can you find such luxurious, spacious living, in the heart of New York City and only a 20 minute subway ride to Greenwich Village. the neighborhood is quiet, neighbors are warm and very friendly and you will find an abundance of fresh fruit, seafood, meat and grocery stores -- New local restaurants and coffee shops are cropping up everyday and lines wrap around the block for famous new establishments, Peaches and (vegetarian) Saraghina. Fashionable Fort Greene and Williamsburg are only minutes away on foot, by bus or subway and home to some of today's best bars and restaurants in Brooklyn Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: BB38572More
