= marks the location of this home
The neighborhood is filled with clothing boutiques, art galleries, the New Museum, a huge range of restaurants, music clubs, and bars. Some local restaurants within 5-7 minutes walking include WD-50, Schiller's, and Barrio Chino. Great coffee shops are also only across the street. There is a bicycle rental shop a block away as well as a small ladies bike for your use. The subway is two blocks away. Within walking distance is Chinatown, Soho, South Street, and Wall Street. We are two minutes walking distance from the Manhattan side entry of the pedestrian path of the Williamsburgh Bridge so it is a lovely walk or bike ride into Williamsburgh, considered the trendiest neighborhood in Brooklyn.
