About Carole Musaracchia & Beverly Balbirsingh

Hi! We are Beverly and Carole, who are the owners at 823. We live on the first and second floors of our home. We welcome you to a comfortable stay in our studio apartment

Carole Musaracchia & Beverly Balbirsingh purchased this studio in 2005

Why Carole Musaracchia & Beverly Balbirsingh chose Brooklyn

Our home is situated in an up and coming section of Bed Sty. It is a 10 minute car drive to both the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges. We enjoy the conveniences to activities in and around Brooklyn and Manhattan. We like the vibe of the neighborhood and the diverse population.

What makes this studio unique

We fell in love with this house because of the backyard space. We created a private space in our back yard to enjoy when we need to unwind. It makes us feel like we are in the country in the city. We like to entertain and having friends and family over to enjoy the space with us.

Comfortable, Clean, Convenient

  • 5 of 5

We chose this apartment for the location close to our family. Due to a major snowstorm we spent more time in the apartment than originally intended but were very comfortable there. First, every part of the unit was clean. The main room is large with ample seating. It was nice having a separate kitchen to eat in. Both rooms had three windows with interesting views. Carole was friendly, available, and prompt in answering our questions. There were even two people from the building next door who recognized us as Carole's guests and offered us help in getting through the piles of snow with our baggage. It was easy to procure groceries from a store down the street in spite of the snow. We would definitely try this apartment again for future visits.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing time at Carole and Beverley's apartment in Brooklyn. Easily accommodating our late check in and check out (which was hugely useful due to a late flight!) plus much needed snacks on arrival - we felt comfortable immediately and every bit at home in the apartment throughout the week. The location is great, cool restaurants and only

30 mins to Williamsburg and about 40 mins Manhattan. We split our time between Brooklyn and the city which was perfect and Carole kindly explained the bus system which was invaluable for our stay. The amenities are great, the apartment spotless and the bed is so comfortable!! We would recommend the place to anyone and will be back next time we visit. Thanks again, Gemma and Nick x

We are located in Brooklyn in historic Bedford Stuyvesant. Our home is right on DeKalb Avenue just steps away from the B38 bus to Downtown Brooklyn. It's a ten minute bus ride to a strip of fantastic restaurants, Fort Greene Park, the Barclay Center, home of the Brooklyn Nets and the venue for concerts and BAM. Take a stroll through Pratt Institute's Sculpture Garden which is only 7 minutes away by bus. Have a slice of Juniors famous cheesecake only 15 minutes away by bus, before you connect to the B,Q, N or R train to New York City right on the corner of Juniors. Stroll through the mall near Barclay Center where you will find stores such as Target, Marshalls, Uniqlo and DSW. Or explore the newly reorganized and rapidly changing Fulton Mall near Juniors in which you will find Macys, Aeropostale, Aldo, American Apparel, Armani Exchange, Banana Republic,Brooklyn Industries to name a few. We are very close to the Brooklyn Museum, the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens, beautiful Brooklyn Bridge Park where you will find the most spectacular views of NYC between 2 bridges. Brooklyn Bridge Park offers free outdoor movies in the summer with the NYC skyline as a backdrop, Beach Volleyball courts, Kayacking,

and the famous Janes Carousel where, for 2 dollars, young or old, you will enjoy this. There are fun parks within the park for children and a scenic bike path. Food festivals are a regular attraction at this park. Citibikes are available a few blocks from us, where you can rent a bike and use the bike lanes made available, we will supply maps. Prospect Park is also nearby Grand Army Plaza and the Brooklyn Public Library and the Brooklyn Museum and the Zoo. A large green market takes place during the summer at the edge of Prospect Park and also every Saturday at Fort Greene Park. Many farmers from upstate New York attend these markets as well as every Wednesday near Union Square Manhattan, a short ride on the D train.

There are a number of public parks and a public pool (Kosciuszko Pool) which is 3 blocks from our house. There is so much to do in Brooklyn, so many restaurants and bars near our home and in the nearby Williamsburg section of Brooklyn. We are centrally located and a very easy commute to all attractions.

You will have a great time and we will help you navigate your way around town. We are gay friendly and straight friendly. Family with children welcome!

Notes:
Brooklyn is the home of Hip Hop and everything that is cool and happening. Bed Stuy is becoming the mecca for up and coming musicians and artists. Nearby Bushwick and Williamsburg offer many art galleries to explore. While BAM, Brooklyn's own theater has live events and shows as well as BAM Rose cinema that shows great art house, foreign and current films. You will never be bored in Brooklyn.
