Three blocks from the E, M and R trains.

The Nest offers the best of both worlds. A quiet, safe neighborhood while being the CLOSEST thing to the city (any closer we'd be IN the city)!

There are great restaurants and a handful of bars within walking distance. A 10 minute walk will bring you to PS1, a satellite museum of The Metropolitan Museum of Art (MoMA). It has great, funky pieces of art from cutting edge artists. PS1 also host amazing summertime parties called "The Warmup Sessions" with international DJ's. A little further on is the Pulaski bridge connecting to Brooklyn.

Street parking generally opens up by 4pm. There are also parking lots within two blocks charging between $7-12 for the day.

We pride ourselves in going above and beyond for our guests and if we can accommodate you, we will.
As the managing director of The Nest, I'm always a flight of stairs away if needed. As a native New Yorker I can suggest places to go, things to do and point out cool little spots that only New Yorkers know about :).

Please feel free to contact with any questions you may have.

Thanks!
Aram

Schöne, gut ausgestattete Wohnung. Verbesserungswürdig sind aus meiner Sicht lediglich fehlende Nachttische bzw. Leuchten oder wenigstens Lichtschalter am Bett. Auch fehlten Teelöffel. Am Anreisetag war die Wohnung zu kalt, eine zweite Bettdecke wurde immerhin angeboten. Die Sicherheit in der Nachbarschaft kann von uns nicht objektiv beurteilt werden, wir haben uns aber subjektiv nicht immer sicher gefühlt. Gut ist, dass der Bus b15 in unmittelbarer Nähe hält und sogar eine Direktverbindung vom/zum JFK-Airport, Terminal 5 für $ 2,75 ermöglicht! Der Transfer zwischen den einzelnen Terminals mit dem airtrain ist kostenlos.
from $222 per night

Die Wohnung war genauso, wie sie beschrieben und wie wir sie uns vorgestellt haben. Nach Downtown dauert es ein wenig mit der Bahn aber man kommt ganz wunderbar mit der nahegelgenen Metro überallhin. Es hat alles wunderbar geklappt und wir würden sofort wieder buchen.
