Chris' place has one of the most accessible location in Brooklyn! The subway station for the A&C trains is only about 3 minutes walk while there are 2 other major subway stations for other lines within the 10 minutes walking radius. This is actually very important especially during winter/cold seasons because you don't need to walk very far!
In general, the apartment faces a main road. During daytime, you may have noises coming from the traffic and business activities, but by the evening, the area will be very peaceful and relaxing, whereby you can explore the surrounding food joints, shopping malls and convenience/grocery/pharmacy stores at your own leisurely pace.
Do note as well, because it's near to the subway station, you can hear the sounds of the trains passing by especially during night time -- but this will only bother someone who is a light sleeper. Otherwise, you will fall in love with the cozy abode with warm lightings.
The apartment is located on the 3rd floor. For those with big and heavy luggages, you have to be careful with the steep stairs.
