The Newkirk House is located just a few blocks from Brooklyn College, and is an easy walk from plenty of local restaurants and shops. This house features three newly renovated floors, with plenty of common space for members to work, entertain or just chill.
The house is a newly renovated space inside and out, with split-unit heating and air conditioning, updated appliances and hardwood floors. This is a three-story, two-unit home, and each unit comes equipped with a full kitchen and living room, as well as access to a large downstairs common area.
There are two full bathrooms and one half bathroom in each five-bedroom unit, so you’ll never have to wait. The space is designed to feel open and airy, with light colors and large windows to let in plenty of sun. Additionally, two of the bedrooms have access to a large private terrace, a perfect spot for morning coffee or an evening cup of tea.
This coliving space is conveniently located just a 10-minute walk from Brooklyn College, on the neighborhood’s main thoroughfare. It’s an 8-minute walk from the Newkirk Ave. stop on the 2 and 5 trains, and a 15-minute walk from the Newkirk Plaza stop on the B and Q trains.
You can be in downtown Brooklyn in less than half an hour, and in lower Manhattan in just a few minutes more.
THROUGHOUT THE HOUSE
We worked with interior designers to make the house comfortable for all of our members in any room of the house. For the furniture we used only the best suppliers and materials, from real wooden surfaces to sleek countertops.
We’ve thought of all the little things you need to feel right at home upon arrival.
As always, the well-being of our members is our top priority, and we're committed to providing a safe environment for members at all Outpost houses as the novel coronavirus pandemic continues to evolve. We're following expert recommendations within our houses to ensure your safety, including by leaving rooms empty for at least 24 hours after a move-out, providing our staff with appropriate PPE and using high-strength Lysol, Clorox and bleach disinfectants to clean after every guest departure. We'll continue to adapt our strategies moving forward to ensure the health and safety of all of our members.
