About our home

Not available in June, July or August. Our large 2 bedroom home is located right over the promenade along the East River, making the oversized living room feel like a boat, due to the expansive view from the floor-to-ceiling windows to the south and west. Stunning sunrises reflected on the Manhattan skyline and amazing sunsets followed by the sparkling view of the skyline at night make this home an amazing place to spend time. It is very tranquil. The open plan living room and kitchen has high-end amenities including large Plasma TV, high-speed wireless cable internet and cable TV, Bose stereo, and a washing machine in the apartment. The living room has French doors onto a long, slender balcony with plants, overlooking the river. The main bedroom has a king-sized bed and a marble bathroom with glass shower and separate bath-tub. The second bedroom has a large desk and a comfortable convertible sofa-bed. There is also a second full bathroom. The building has a 24-hour concierge. There is a parking garage in the building for additional fees, and free street parking nearby.
The building has a beautiful roof terrace with views over Manhattan and Brooklyn. We have 2 sweet-natured cats, Felix and Tatze, and we can exchange cat care. Our apartment is not suited to young children.

More about us

  1. We are a couple both working in film (documentaries and independent feature films). Wolfgang is a cinematographer, Pola is a filmmaker and editor. We travel a lot. Wolfgang has family in Germany. We sometimes like to do a non-simultaneous exchange in which we travel at a different time from our host family. We love our 2 cats and are happy to exchange cat care.
    We have had several successful and delightful exchanges during which we have greatly enjoyed meeting our exchange partners.

Where is it?


Our condo is located on the 3rd floor of a 15-storey high-rise building built on the site of a former Brewery, called Schaefer Landing, on the edge of the Brooklyn side of the East River, just north of the Brooklyn Navy Yard. We are in South Williamsburg. It has a nice promenade and public areas. A ferry boat right under the apartment brings you into Manhattan from early in the morning through the evening in just 20 minutes, 7 days a week. Williamsburg, Brooklyn is a hip and artistic community, home of many ethnic groups. It lies just over the walkable Williamsburg Bridge from downtown Manhattan, or one subway stop on the L, J or M lines away from the East Village, Lower East Side and Wall Street Area. There are many outstanding restaurants, cinemas, galleries and venues for live music right in Williamsburg within walking distance, as well as an excellent large supermarket one block away. The J and M trains are a 10-minute walk, the L train a 20-minute walk away. There is also a shuttle bus from the building to the subways at morning rush hour. There is a Citibike bike-share station near the building.
