About Minnette LeBlanc, Owner, Miu Wong, Bookkeeper

Developing and brokering new restaurant, club and music venues in Williamsburg, and retail and commercial real estate in Brooklyn; classical singer, fine art dealer; knowledge of German language and culture; frequent traveler to California and Europe.

Minnette LeBlanc, Owner, Miu Wong, Bookkeeper purchased this apartment in 1988

Why Minnette LeBlanc, Owner, Miu Wong, Bookkeeper chose Brooklyn

This is a large house for the City, but the sun, nearby East River air and gardens make it feel like the country. After living in Tribeca, Manhattan, I felt as though I bought the gardens and the house came with them. I live and work in the building and one floor is often available for guests. It is quiet for New York, restful, out of the way and private - and 2 blocks away from everything!

What makes this apartment unique

Fresh breeze drifts in from the river - there are actually windows on all 4 sides! The garden is full of the scent of roses, lilies, honeysuckle, violets, lavender and herbs just outside the windows. ....It's great to walk around the corner early in the morning for newspapers, cappuccino and home made croissants, and sit at sidewalk cafe tables and meet the locals!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Minnette,



Thank you for letting us stay at your apartment. It was as you described. Very quiet, spacious and perfectly close to restaurants, shops and most especially our new grandson!

Notes:
One of the great things about this apartment is its ':walk-ability'. It sits in the middle of a vibrant, international village, and you can go anywhere or get anything - on foot, or with a car that will affordably pick you up in 5 minutes and take you anywhere. But when you are at home, it is quiet and restful, and feels like the country - at least, to a New Yorker!

Large and comfortable apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Apartment 3 on the second floor. It is clean and comfortable and decorated in an old fashioned attractive way. We stayed there in July but were comfortable with the cross ventilation and the air conditioner in the middle room when we needed it. The kitchen is large and well equipped, with a big table that worked wonderfully as a place to share pre-dinner appetizers and drinks with our Brooklyn based kids and their partners who we came to visit. Yes, your are near the train, and you can hear when it passes, but we got accustomed to this pretty quickly. We loved walking over the Williamsburg Bridge, not mobbed like the Brooklyn Bridge, and with separate lanes for pedestrians and bikers. The pizzeria Fornino recently opened a place about tree blocks away from this apartment. Great thin crust wood fired pizza. The owners were very responsive, and were quick to address a problem we identified with the outside steps. Recommended.

Great location in Williamsburg. Walking distance to food, coffe, bars and shopping.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was even better than expected. Roomy, comfy beds, beautifully decorated and super clean. We walked to many great spots in Williamsburg including an awesome food market. We took the nearby subway to manhattan or used the Lyft app. Minnette was very helpful and accommodating. My sister enjoyed looking through the "bad cat" book(1 of many books available) before falling asleep. I would love to stay there again.

Affordable and clean

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this townhouse which was clean and conveniently located in Williamsburg. The owner was accommodating and the check-in/out process was easy. Noise was somewhat of a factor at night in the bedroom, but the air conditioning offset some of it. We were surprised to see the condition of the outside of the townhouse, both front and back were not represented accurately by the photos. Apparently, there was damage to the front entrance and the back yard was overgrown and not accessible. Beds were comfortable and the kitchen provided the basics.

Wonderful apartment! Great Brooklyn location with Marlowe & Sons, a perfect breakfast spot, just around the corner. Plenty of space to spread out. I will definitely be back!
