This Greenpoint pad shuns the classic Brooklyn aesthetic, stumbling upon something warmer and more colourful in the process. It’s actually part of a boutique hotel, so while it doesn’t feel totally like someone’s home (more on that later), for those looking for a slice of Brooklyn's low-key cool, with the benefit of a hotel concierge, it's an excellent option. This converted former factory has been given a head-to-toe makeover, with each of the rooms furnished individually to ensure that no two are the same. The open living area creates a great social space that extends outdoors – though you'll have a climb a few steps to reach it. Retro toys, cameras and flea market finds are dotted around the room to add a personal touch. If you want to explore further afield, you're eight minutes from the closest Metro, which will have you in Lower Manhattan in approximately twenty-five minutes. There's also the scenic East River option courtesy of the Greenpoint ferry terminal under a mile away.
