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

Nice, clean, super friendly, convenient

  • 4 of 5

If you're looking for a cheaper way to stay near Manhattan...this is it. This peoperty Is just a couple minutes walk to the subway. It is in a nice, clean neighborhood. It is a basement apartment, but it was clean and they thought of everything that you may need for a great stay near the city. Everyone that we dealt with was so friendly and helpful.

Most Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is conveniently located near to subways, shopping and site seeing. The apartment itself is furnished 'over and above' for a family of 5 or 6. It is very comfortable and the owners are very personable. My family and I spent three nights there and we're already planning to return. It's so much nicer than staying in a hotel room. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a "home away from home".

Took the stress and concerns out of our trip.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were very delighted to have located and booked our stay with our 10 year old granddaughter at this location. We appreciated Jason, and others in his family, making our visit smooth and enjoyable. We received great information that helped plan our trip, our arrival and places in the area that helped with the day to day needs while there. When I started to feel concerned about returning to LaGuardia, he made arrangements while I was with him that relieved the stress I was beginning to feel. The property was very nice, clean and cared for, and in a charming neighborhood. The close access to a major line (express) of the subway system made getting into and around Manhattan from Liberty and Ellis Island to Central Park, or beyond if we had planned to go that far north, very quick and smooth. This is definitely a place to stay when visiting New York.

True HOME away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Our situation was a bit unique, we actually live nearby, but had to relocate for a few days while our home was being renovated. Jason was incredibly gracious, understanding, and professional. The apartment was pristine and exactly as pictured/described - immaculately clean, very spacious, fantastic backyard (truly a gem in NYC), convenient proximity to the train (1 block), and lots of awesomely delightful restaurants within walking distance. The apartment had everything you could need to make your stay as comfortable as possible - extra linens, cots, stove top, refrigerator, cable, laundry, storage. You can tell the neighbors really care about their block, also very clean with nicely lined potted plants vibrantly adorning both sides of the street. We felt safe, very 'at home' and truly enjoyed our experience at The Reading Room. Highly recommended!

Great Place to stay at!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 3 nights, the place was clean and spacious. Jason was really helpful and he made sure we were at home. I could reach him at anytime and he would respond quickly. The subway was less than 5 minutes walk. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who wants to stay in Brooklyn and visit Manhattan everyday.
