I'm subletting my 2-bedroom apartment from August 4th-31st in Greenpoint, which is fast becoming French Brooklyn, as the local school now has a dual language program, and new French restaurants and cafes are springing up.

The apartment is one block away from the beautiful McGorlick park, which hosts a Sunday farmer's market. Greenpoint is a very low-key, easy to-navigate neighborhood that retains a lot of its neighborhood heritage while also being part of a great arts/nightlife scene in New York.

It's a five-minute walk to Williamsburg and the much larger McCarren Park, where there is shopping, rooftop bars like Berry Park and great restaurants-- French, Polish, Japanese, Thai, Mexican, etc. In the summer, McCarren Park also has open-air film screening, fairs. It's also reopening their gigantic outdoor pool on June 28th.

The apartment has a twin bed and a double bed and is on the top floor of a 3-story building and is very quiet and sunny. The nearest subway is a five-minute walk to the Nassau G train or a 15-minute walk to the Bedford L train.

Some plant watering required. $500 deposit.
