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 Williamsburg

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!

A gem in the heart of Williamsburg

  • 5 of 5

This well maintained 3 room apartment was perfectly located near grocery store and tons of fabulous restaurants. Having our own kitchen made breakfasts and entertaining guests easy. There’s plenty of sleep space for a larger family than just the 2 of us. Street parking was plentiful- just have to remember alternate side of the street parking regulations. The only negative was the sound of the subway, but even that did not interfere with our enjoyment. I highly recommended this gem.

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is BEAUTIFUL. It's located just a couple blocks from the subway that takes you anywhere you'd like to go in Brooklyn or Manhattan. The home was very comfortable and in my humble opinion, the most quiet place I've stayed in the 4 visits to the area. Also, you're just about a block or two from the waters edge on the East River, so at night, you can walk down and enjoy the most beautiful view of Manhattan. The home was clean and well equipped and even had coffee and bagels waiting for us! My husband and I loved it and will definitely be renting again. Dan and Vanessa thank you!!!

Everything we expected and more!

  • 5 of 5

We chose this charming home for our stay in Williamsburg and we will definitely be going back. The online photos are true to life. We walked into our accommodation and immediately felt at home.

The location is ideal for walking to many restaurants and attractions and there is a fabulous market less than a block away.

The decor is comfortable and inviting.

We look forward to our next visit

Fantastic townhouse!!!

  • 5 of 5

This townhouse was so quaint and cozy. It was well decorated, nicely furnished, well stocked, very comfortable, had tasty goodies in the fridge, and was just over the top in every way! It was very clean. It’s location was perfect for walking, and not too far from the subway. It was just the perfect rental for our stay! We will be staying there again!!!
