Looking for a slice of NYC character as authentic as its pizza?

Smack in Brooklyn's center by Von King Park: an exceptionally well-located, spacious, and unique home. As the sole guest or couple, you have a lovely private room in a quiet but lively area: Bed-Stuy, 1/2 hour to Manhattan by subway or bike.

I enjoy hosting culture - call it a retrograde ethos. Happy to share my home, kitchen, backyard, and great stories. Your stay will be a New York experience like few others.

The space
With regard to covid-19: no instant book available. No worries!; in the interest of hosting safely, send a short and sweet message about your trip. Let me know if any issues arise before you arrive. I'll do the same.

This is a cool space with its own character, a reflection of your host. I've put a lot of work into it over the years, made much of the furniture myself; and collect, build, and use many items that you can explore during your stay.

FAQs
◥ YES, free street parking, often out front.

◥ Listing will not be available if there are any health concerns.
◥ Award-winning hospitality!

A splendid shelter in the City. You have a spacious 125sft (11.5sm) bedroom, but don't feel the need to stay locked in. Common spaces are...common! Instruments if you're musical; private backyard for you smokers or squirrel watchers; kitchen with gas range and dining area if you wish to be chef while you're here.

It's just me living here; home is where I work and play. While you have all the privacy you need, I enjoy the art of hosting and getting to know you, too. Ask about weekend brunch at home. Best chef in town.

Yours is the main bedroom: south-facing, full-size bed, closet, desk space, ceiling fan. It's the most private room in the house, immediately adjacent to the living area/bathroom. Street-facing but quiet relative to NYC.

I've lived in NYC for a decade. It's a pleasure to share my experience of the city, especially with regards to music and art - even nature!

Where you’ll be

Brooklyn, New York, United States

Without a doubt, a perfect New York mix of residential and city life. At the heart of Bedford-Stuyvesant - the largest neighborhood in Brooklyn - it's peaceful but happening at the same time.

Right next to a park, but also more cafes than sunrises in the year, but also down the street from that perfect brunch spot in a greenhouse, but also a short walk from the most down-to-earth (or hippest) bars around...but also Ornithology, one of the funkiest music venues in Brooklyn. Theaters, performance spaces, Downtown Brooklyn, and Barclays Center are close by as well.

Travel is certainly about self-discovery, but none of that matters if kept to oneself. I appreciate textures and rhythms of other places...there is no better way to do that than with locals. I have lived, studied, and worked abroad in many places, and each instance has shaped my worldview. Those moments when strange places and strangers soon become familiar friends...

During your stay

I work from home but if I'm out of the house, you will easily find keys and get set up on your own if I'm not around. I'll probably run into you most days, but the spaces in the house are for you to enjoy. Please inquire before using any of the equipment, etc in the house.
