About Jason

This limestone home has been carefully taken care of since it was built in 1910. The neighborhood of Stuyvesant Heights is home to many families including my own. We enjoy the neighborhood feel, the magnificent New York architecture, the independent coffee shops and trendy restaurants. The A Train is less than 100 ft. from the apartment and your trip into the city will take approximately 25 minutes. Clearly, Brooklyn itself is a destination and you will be right in the center if you choose to stay at the Reading Room Suite.

We look forward to having you enjoy the neighborhood as many, many travelers from around the world do every day! Have breakfast in the Reading Room Suite or in one of the many neighborhood eateries before setting out on your day to explore all that New York has to offer.

Warmest regards, Jason

Jason purchased this apartment in 2007

Charm & Chic

  • 5 of 5

My stay at the reading room exceeded my expectations. The property has the details you will find in any European capital. The exquisite details and Architectural flair gives one the impression of charming library along the Thames river in London. I would recommend staying here for any family that loves a cultured environment while thriving in an energetic city. The staff and owner has exceptional attention to detail while providing the warmth a weary traveler would need after a long trip.

Exceptional Value for this modern boutique hotel

Emjoyed our time in NY

  • 5 of 5

The Reading Room was very clean. It had everything that we needed.

Jason was very accommodating. We called Jason 15 minutes before arriving. As we arrived late, Jason waited on the street for us, then moved his car so we could park. It was after 10pm. We were tired and didn't feel like going out to eat. Jason suggested we order pizza. He then called and ordered pizza for delivery. Jason showed us how to get around NY using the subway. There was a map of the subway on the wall. The whole time we were in NY, Jason was very helpful.

Good Stay

  • 5 of 5

This property is as described. It is a convenient walk to the nearby subway station. Takes about 30 minutes on the train to get to Manhattan. Jason was helpful in making sure we had what we needed and was happy to answer questions.

Very comfortable apartment and super convenient to subway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay with our 10 and 12 year olds. Went to Manhattan four full days without a problem. Jason was really helpful during our stay and always available if we had questions. The apartment was great to come back to after long days in the city.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review! Manhattan is fantastic and it certainly is the place where our guests spend most of their time. However, we often hear about how great it is to return to the Reading Room Suite at the end of a long day sightseeing in Manhattan. Thanks for sharing your feedback and I hope to see you back sometime in the future!

What a great stay!

  • 5 of 5

The moment we stepped into this apartment, we were impressed. It's beautiful decorated, very spacious and the bed is very comfortable.

Both Jason and his mother are very kind people, they even gave us flowers for our 25th Anniversary, which is very appreciated by us. They did all to welcome us in their house.

We couldn't be happier with the location, it's very close to the A/C train, that brings you in 30 minutes to Manhattan. After a long day, spending in Manhattan, it's nice to come home in such nice neighborhood and place to stay.

We had a great week, and hope to come back sometimes.

Thank you, Jason and your mother, for being such nice people.

Kind regards from the Netherlands
