This desirable little bolthole provides sweeping views of the boroughs, which is impressive in itself, but the windows also look out onto one of Brooklyn's oldest trees (according to the host anyhow). The studio is small (read: cute), but is decorated beautifully and the windows run almost orund the entire room. The parts you can't see out of, can be glimpsed from the sizeable roof terrace, which is accessible directly from the room. There's a separate bathroom, and a fridge, coffee machine, microwave and hairdryer are tucked away in the cupboard.
Straight out of a 19th century novel, this picturesque private house offers one of its floors for visitors (the hosts stay on a separate floor and promise to never compromise your privacy).

A stone’s throw away from Williamsburg’s bustling heart, as well as the ferry to Manhattan, it’s a fantastic way to get a bit of city and country all in one.
Housed in a renovated former sweater factory, this five-bedroom loft is decked out in handmade furniture created by the hosts, as well as vogueish mid-century goods.

Or if you fancy staying in for a night, your hosts have a lovely living room with a projector that's perfect for movie nights. Fun fact: the hosts also speak Mandarin Chinese and Spanish.
