About the neighborhood:
Charming townhouses and little shops lend this quickly growing northernmost Brooklyn neighborhood a cozy feel.

The arts, music, restaurants, and nightlife have migrated across the East River to Greenpoint. You will find lots of young professionals and trendsetters in this bustling neighborhood filled with energy, small boutiques, cutting- edge galleries and music venues. Plus, check out that skyline view of downtown Manhattan!
Guests will enjoy clean, air-conditioned single or double rooms, housekeeping, 24-hour security, vending machines, a lounge, and free Wi-Fi.
