The apartment is spacious and clean. Bathroom is a bit small but absolutely adequate. The bed in the second bedroom was a bit narrow for our 14-year-old twins so one of them slept on the sofa bed which was perfectly ok. Coretta was very nice and easy going. The neighborhood is safe and sound, very quiet and neat street, and the apartment is only a few blocks away from the A train to Manhattan. We stayed for 9 nights and enjoyed it very much.
Very nice apartment and about 10 minutes from Manhattan by subway, Coretta very good hostess, insurance and multicultural neighborhood, totally recommended
Apartamento muy bonito y a unos 10 minutos de manhattan en metro,coretta muy buena anfitriona ,el barrio seguro y multicultural,totalmente recomendable
We had a great stay in a well-furnished apartment, close to public transport and within easy reach of supermarkets and delis, in a safe neighborhood. If you want to get to know everyday life and not feel like a tourist all the time, this is the place for you. Coretta was a wonderful host, everything was in perfect order and water and juice were waiting for us after a long trip. JFK can be reached by direct train, just like Manhattan. Anyone interested in more than just buying up Broadway will find this a very convenient location with a host who can reply to any questions asked and who is very helpful.
The apartment (1st floor, old building) is located in a quiet residential street of the American middle class and is well and practically equipped, clean and in good condition. The device corresponds exactly to the photos. Nice detail: Coretta had stocked the fridge with various beverages. They are also valuable tips on where to find what. To the underground there is a pleasant walk of about 10 minutes. The trip to Manhattan (south point) takes about 20 minutes, about 40 minutes to Midtown. The apartment is perfectly situated to get to know the 'normal' New York life that is predominantly African American in this area. Specific recommendations for Brookyn: Prospect Park (can compete with the Central Park), right next to the Museum (the second largest in NY), a trip to Coney Iceland, a shopping spree in the lower Fulton Street (including here also Macy's) and Walk across the Brooklyn Bridge to Manhattan.
Note for NY newbies: life here is generally loud and hectic, you can not recognize a German quality standards, the people friendly and helpful, no safety concerns, a lot of police presence.
Die Wohnung (1. Stock, Altbau) liegt in einer ruhigen Wohnstraße der amerikanischen Mittelklasse und ist gut und praktisch ausgestattet, sauber und in ordentlichem Zustand. Die Einrichtung entspricht exakt den Fotos. Nettes Detail: Coretta hatte bereits den Kühlschrank mit verschiedenen Getränken bestückt. Sie gibt auch wertvolle Tipps, wo was zu finden ist. Zur U-Bahn ist es ein gemütlicher Spaziergang von knapp 10 Minuten. Die Fahrt nach Manhattan (Südspitze) dauert ca. 20 Minuten, bis Midtown ca. 40 Minuten. Die Wohnung liegt ideal, um das 'normale' New Yorker Leben kennenzulernen, das in dieser Gegend vorwiegend afroamerikanisch geprägt ist. Besondere Empfehlungen für Brookyn: der Prospect Park (kann mit dem Central Park konkurrieren), gleich daneben das Museum (das zweitgrößte in NY), eine Fahrt nach Coney Island, ein Einkaufsbummel in der unteren Fulton Street (u.a. ist hier auch Macy's) und zu Fuß über die Brooklyn Bridge nach Manhattan.
Hinweis für NY-Neulinge: das Leben ist hier generell lauter und hektischer, man kann keine deutschen Qualitätsstandards ansetzen, die Menschen freundlich und hilfsbereit, keine Sicherheitsbedenken, viel Polizeipräsenz.
After one or two days, we have become so accustomed to that we already feel really had to live there. Coretta was very nice and accommodating and we can only recommend the hotel.
Nach ein bis zwei Tagen haben wir uns so sehr daran gewöhnt, dass wir schon das Gefühl hatten wirklich dort zu wohnen. Coretta war sehr nett und zuvorkommend und wir können die Unterkunft nur weiter empfehlen.
During our stay at Corettas' place everything went perfect and was just as expected. Coretta was very helpfull during our stay and made our visit even more comfortable. The appartment is just like described - everything was clean and neat.
The Location was perfect for us, grocery shops and coffee shops are all in walking distance. The Metro connection was fast and easy to Manhatten. The Station is about 2min walking distance away.
We had a lovely week in NY and found that the price-performance ratio of Corettas apartment is entirely appropriate. It is a small walk from the station Nostrand Ave away, from where you can relatively quickly drive to Manhattan. The street outside the front door at night was nice and quiet and looked different from the area directly at the train station quite safe.
The interior of the apartment is simple and clean. In the fridge was fresh juice and in the kitchen cupboard were small snacks and coffee ready when we arrived. Coretta greeted us very friendly and offered us at all times to help if questions would arise. The apartment we would recommend for a cheap sightseeing stay with a small group of very.
Wir hatten eine schöne Woche in NY und finden, dass das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis von Corettas Wohnung völlig angemessen ist. Sie liegt einen kleinen Fußmarsch von der Station Nostrand Ave entfernt, von der aus man relativ zügig nach Manhattan fahren kann. Die Straße vor der Haustür war nachts angenehm ruhig und wirkte anders als die Gegend unmittelbar an der Bahnstation recht sicher.
Die Einrichtung der Ferienwohnung ist einfach und sauber gehalten. Im Kühlschrank stand bei unserer Ankunft frischer Saft und im Küchenschrank standen kleine Knabbereien und Kaffee bereit. Coretta begrüßte uns sehr freundlich und bot uns jederzeit Hilfe an, wenn Fragen aufkommen würden. Die Wohnung würden wir für einen günstigen Sightseeingaufenthalt mit einer kleinen Gruppe sehr empfehlen.
Spacious apartment in very quiet neighborhood, with garden, a good bed and well equipped kitchen. Nice to be welcomed with water, coke and juice. 4 minute walk to supermarket, 6-7 minute walk to subway: express train to Manhattan, and direct line to JFK. The house is a bit noisy inside due to the wooden floors: you can hear other people walk, not talk. We had a great stay in Brooklyn, NYC.
A very pleasant stay at Corettas in Brooklyn. Price vs quality was very good and everything was nice, clean and tidy. You can really feel at home her, making your own breakfast and also dinner if you want.
The concept of living in Brooklyn as a home-base was excellent!
Coming back from Manhattan to Bed-Stuy in the evening was really nice.
Going with the Metro late nights was no problem, feeling secure the whole way.
A quiet place with a bunch of friendly and helping people.
Small restaurants nearby and several stores to by food and others.
Next time we'll go to New York - this is the place to book!
Thanks Coretta and thanks Wimdu for good services and a reliable concept.
It was superb!
Det var kanonbra!
Das war wunderbar!

We really enjoy our stay in New York.
The apartment is particularly well situated, near the subway. It is also spacious. The neighborhood is so quiet.
Coretta was present when we arrived. She gave to us information we needed (shops, subway, ...).
When we had a problem with the hairdryer, Coretta solved it very quickly.
