Our recent trip to New York took us to Brooklyn for the first time, and I was completely charmed by all the cute neighborhoods and enticing shop and restaurant lined streets. Franklin Guesthouse located in Greenpoint was one of our favorite spots. The inviting boutique hotel houses studios fully equipped with kitchens, lounges, outdoor areas, and cozy bedrooms creating the ideal home away from home. Surrounded by fragrant coffee shops, intimate bars and restaurants, and only a few minutes walk to the East River Ferry, it’s such a perfect jumping off point for exploring the area and beyond. I loved the friendly staff, convenient 24 hour gym, laundry machines and free car service for the local area. An ideal choice if you want to live like a local during your holiday.
