My wife and I took a chance and booked The Box House to hopefully experience a different side of New York. We are glad we did. Great place with a great staff who was always more than willing to help. Cristian and Singh (shuttle drivers) were amazing. We will miss those guys. The taxis were not used but the X5 BMW used to shuttle us around was nothing to complain about.
Rooms: We love the chilly air conditioner, the bed was extremely comfortable, the room was nicely decorated. The decor gave us some ideas for our own home. Although we read something that noted that there is no daily house keeping, we were surprised with the fact that our rooms were attended to daily.
Green Point: A very lively place with plenty of bars, cafes, delis and a couple of nice bakeries. I loved the Mocha at the Eagle Trading Company and Muffins at Ovenly. In my opinion, there were not enough restaurants to choose from. Everybody was extremely friendly with the exception of a few rude people a block away at a Heavy Metal Bar. Lots of patrons dressed in black heavy metal shirts smoking away. Walk to the Greenpoint Station was a quick 8 blocks away.
Advice: Take the G towards Church Ave. and the L Train to get to Union Sq. or all the way to 8th Ave. to be near Hell's Kitchen. You can also walk across Pulaski Bridge and take the 7 train for a quick trip directly to Times Sq.
I hope you enjoy your stay at the Box House like we did.
