Perks for the Parents

This light and bright apartment is set up for young families and is within walking distance of the Brooklyn Botanic Garden and Prospect Park Zoo. It sleeps a maximum of 2 adults and 2 children under 5. Its unusual layout means that there is a window in every room with south and west-facing views of the neighborhood. Situated in the heart of Brooklyn, the apartment has easy access to public transport and family-friendly restaurants, shops and parks. There are great restaurants nearby and the farmer’s market at Grand Army Plaza a 30-minute walk.

Why Kids Love it

This family home is equipped with toys, books and games for children aged 5 and under. There are 2 cute toddler beds in the bedroom with a dollhouse, a small desk and a cabinet of great toys to play with. In the living room there is a children’s table, books, a piano and television with Apple TV. Within walking distance there is much to explore including Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn Botanic Garden, and Prospect Park Zoo and Carousel. The delightful Mount Prospect Park - 25 minutes on foot - has a big playground and is a good spot for a picnic in summertime.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 7 days. The apartment is on the fifth floor with an elevator. Given the size of the 2 toddler beds this apartment is only suitable for children aged 5 and under.

In the summer, window air conditioning units are provided. No pets allowed. A stroller can be provided on request.

About the Location

The apartment is on the western side of Crown Heights in Brooklyn, New York City between the Franklin 2/3/4/5 and Prospect Park Q/S trains. The neigborhood of Crown Heights is characterised by historic brownstones and tree-lined streets with a diverse and burgeoning foodie scene. It is a 40-minute taxi ride from JFK International Airport and 30 minutes by taxi from LGA Airport in Queens. The area is very family-friendly and easy to get around by foot or by public transport. A car is not essential, but street parking is available if required.

Accommodation Details

This apartment has 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom and is on the fifth floor of an elevator building with a hallway for stroller storage. The main bedroom has been split into 2 and has a queensize bed on one side and 2 toddler beds on the other; there is also space for a travel crib if needed. There is a small, fully equipped kitchen and a living room/diner with a dining table and chairs seating 4 adults and 2 children, plus a living room.

Style Notes

Happy and homely. This cheery and minimalist apartment is filled with books, prints and art. Perfect for young children who will love the kiddy desks, pots of pencils and whimsical, fun design, there is a warm, comfortable vibe throughout. The main living room has a large fiddle leaf fig and floor-to-ceiling bookshelves with books for children and adults alike. We love the Stokke chairs in the dining area, the all-day natural light streaming into the space and the sunny, yellow sofa.

Hi! We're a Texan/Austrian family living in Brooklyn (10 years). We have two kids, ages 4 & 2.5. We travel Europe every summer and America throughout the year with our kids. We joined Kid & Coe in 2016. Our first experience was in Chioggia, Italy. We loved it. Here's to many more trips! We speak Spanish, German and English.

Crown Heights, Brooklyn

Bordering Prospect Park and Bed-Stuy in central Brooklyn, Crown Heights has streets of historic brownstones and parks ringing with the sounds of families having fun. Well connected to the rest of the area by public transit, it's an easy place to base yourself in the city. Don't miss the area's key treats - Brooklyn Children's Museum and Brooklyn Botanic Garden - along with Berg'n, a beer/food hall selling everything from pulled pork to burritos.
