Staying in an Airbnb near the Brooklyn Bridge provides a convenient base for exploring both sides of New York City. On one side, you have Manhattan, with its soaring skyscrapers, bustling streets, and endless cultural offerings. On the other side is Brooklyn, known for its art scene, stellar restaurants and bars, and historic brownstones. The recent changes in law regarding short-term rentals in New York City have reduced the number of Airbnbs available, but there’s still a handful of rentals you can book. Considering how convenient an Airbnb is, especially in an expensive city such as NYC, it’s worth planning and booking your accommodation in advance. These remaining Airbnbs are within walking distance of the iconic overpass and many of the Big Apple’s must-see sights.

Stylish apartment for a group or family next to Battery Park
If you‘re traveling with a group or family, this is a wonderful place to stay. It has all the amenities of a hotel, with the convenience of a self-catering and fully stocked apartment. The apartment is located in a historic landmark building a ten-minute walk from Battery Park. The Battery faces the New York Harbor and the Hudson River, offering stunning waterfront views. Although surrounded by skyscrapers, the park’s greenery will offer you refuge — which will be very welcome, especially if you’re visiting during the hot summer months. The interior of the stylish apartment is modern, with white, black, and grey tones warmed by burgundy and gold. Much like a hotel stay, bathrooms come stocked with luxury toiletries, and guests can make use of the hotel facilities such as the gym and on-site restaurant.
Six guests, two bedrooms
Price: $925 per night
Two-bedroom apartment with breathtaking views in the Financial District
It might not come as a surprise that many of the Airbnbs still available are either part of a hotel or cater to business travelers who need long-term (more than three nights) accommodation. That’s why many are situated in the middle of Wall Street. And that’s not a bad thing. First of all, you have a central location. Secondly, these apartments are pretty baller. As the listing states, “If you’re looking to live it up in NYC, this is the way to do it.” There are two beautiful bathrooms, two bathrooms, and a fully equipped kitchen — all with breathtaking views of the city skyline. The open-planned layout of the kitchen and dining area are great for entertaining and there’s a large dining table that seats six. Previous guests rave about the friendly and helpful front desk staff at check-in and proclaim that the photos do not do it justice.
Four guests, two bedrooms

Suite in Downtown Brooklyn
This king-sized suite is located on the Brooklyn side of the bridge. It’s part of a hotel, but if you’re visiting in a shoulder season, it’s very affordable. Yes, there are no kitchen facilities but keep in mind that Airbnb has a pay-in-installment system, so if you’re booking in advance, you can chip away at payments and make your dream NYC vacation financially manageable. Located in Downtown Brooklyn next to the Barclays Center, the hotel is a short stroll from some of the top Brooklyn sights and scenery. In fact, you’ll be minutes away from 12 subway lines, so it’s a great base for exploring the city. Guests can make use of all hotel facilities, including the gym and restaurants.

Chic studio with seasonal rooftop
Perfect for a couple or solo traveler, this studio has won awards as a remarkable New York stay. The standout feature is the seasonal rooftop that overlooks the city and the Brooklyn Bridge. The studio has its own kitchen, and within the building, there is a communal cooking space and co-working facilities. The decor is chic with a European flair. It’s a short ten-minute walk to Battery Park, and there’s a Blue Spoon Coffee Company just outside for your morning brioche sandwich.

Garden suite in Prospect Heights
This rental is a little further away from the bridge, but Prospect Heights is a fantastic place to base yourself if you’re more interested in exploring Brooklyn. The neighborhood strikes a perfect balance between old-school charm and modern attractions. Here, you have Prospect Park and the Brooklyn Public Library, and it’s walking distance from the Brooklyn Museum and the Botanic Gardens. Prospect Heights is also home to some of the best family-owned restaurants and bars in the city. This garden suite features a queen-sized bed in the bedroom and a pull-out couch in the garden suite’s parlor area for extra guests. There’s also free parking on the premises, which is almost unheard of.

One-bedroom housed in Art Deco building in Manhattan
Another thing to note with the changing of regulations is that there has been an increase in the price of hotel rooms across the city. This hardly seems fair in a destination that is already an expensive place to visit. One way to keep costs down is to prepare some meals at home. Even a coffee and bagel could set you back $20, so being able to grab a slice of toast in the morning, or prepare a packed lunch to take out as you explore will save you a significant amount. This apartment is a smaller version of the first mentioned. It has a similar color scheme and sleeps up to four instead of a group of six. There’s one bedroom with an extra sofa bed. The price is, of course, lower than the aforementioned, but if you are concerned about privacy, it’s worth opting for the larger of the two.
