This is a private room in a sunny shared apartment in the Crown Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn. Great location close to the 2, 3, 4, and 5 subway lines, Prospect Park, Brooklyn Museum, and 20 minute subway ride to downtown Manhattan.
The room has a double bed and could comfortably fit two people.
This is a classic Brooklyn brick walk-up in a young neighborhood. The apartment has three bedrooms, a kitchen, a living room and a bathroom, and is shared among three housemates. The apartment gets plenty of light, has hardwood floors, and guests find it cozy and cute!
Your room has clean sheets and towels, extra blankets, a humidifier or AC if needed, and classic NYC radiator (without the rattling!). There's a desk and chair if you have work to do, and one of the windows leads to the fire escape. The closet is pretty large by New York standards, running the length of one wall, and there's a big dresser inside for folded clothes. This is a sublet of my own room, so my belongings are all stashed at the top of the closet so that you'll have the main area all to yourself.
You have access to your private room, the bathroom, kitchen, and living room. The bathroom has a shower and claw-foot tub, and there is a drawer for your toiletries. You can use any dishes, pots, pans you might need in the kitchen, just make sure to wash up when you're done! The kitchen has a fridge, oven/stove, microwave, water-boiler for making tea, and probably all the cooking/eating tools you might need.
Interaction with guests
There are 2 housemates, both friendly and responsible ladies who would be happy to help you find whatever you are looking for. Both also have jobs, and thus do not stay up all night carousing ;)
Note: because my housemates are both women, I would give preference to booking requests from women. Thank you for understanding!
We follow the golden rule: do unto others as you would have them do unto you. After that, there's just no pets, no smoking, no drugs, generally clean up after yourself. Although what you do on the fire escape is totally up to you!
American student, francophile and lusophile, yoga fan and very much a composite Californian/New Yorker (open and semi-hippie, but energetic and pragmatic). I lived in Paris for a few years too and still feel like a parisienne!
