Descriptions of 254 S 1st St

Prime Williamsburg, close to the Bedford L, around the corner from Williamsburg Cinema and in the center of the vast array of international restaurants, dive bars, craft cocktail lounges and unique shops that make Williamsburg such a mecca for so many people. Kathleen (Kat) McEldowney (Jun 2014)
Conveniently located steps away from the Bedford L train and a 5-minute walk from the JMZ trains at Marcy Ave, this space is your chance to grab one of Williamsburg’s last best kept secrets. If you’re not down with waiting two hours to be seated for brunch, Rye, one of the only restaurants left that takes reservations in the hood, is just down the street. Desnuda Cevicheria is one of the most gorgeous additions to the south side thus far and Tabare, also down the street, offers incredible local and organic fare. Brian Moskin (May 2014)
In a charming building close to mass transit and all the rad stuff that put Williamsburg on the map, this is the perfect place to celebrate Summer in Brooklyn. With nice hardwood flooring, 5 tremendous closets and a laundry in the building, this one will move faster than Usain Bolt. Thomas Handschiegel (May 2014)
