To spend a week in New York we decided to take an apartment on airbnb at Williansburg. It was the best idea ever! Not only because the apartment was incredibly awesome, but because we got to live in New York as newyorkers, enjoying the city walking a lot, taking the underground, eating bagels for breakfast and go shopping to the best thrift shops.
Warn, the owner, wasn’t at the country so he left the maintenance of the apartment to a company in the city, but everything was perfect. We had help when we needed it and when we understood all the tech things inside the house our stay was really confortable.
