You have access to the full-size bathroom, kitchen, and living room.
The living room adequately holds two carry-ons and a roll-around. You'll sleep on a comfortable full-size pull out bed. Feel free to watch TV. I set up a guest account on my PC for those you lose their phone or it becomes inoperable.
This neighborhood has a variety restaurants, pizza parlors, lounges, and Chinese take-outs. There are major retailers & bargain stores. I live in between 2 colleges and 3 major malls.
Unwind from a day of conferencing, sight-seeing, or otherwise in a clean, attractive apartment in a recently renovated walk-up building with an awning. Given the size of my apartment, this is ideal for a stay of up to 6 days.
You'll sleep on a sofabed--covered in clean sheets--that can accommodate up to 2 people, if necessary. Clean up in a full-size bathroom with electric outlets, fan, & a window. You can keep food & beverages in the refrigerator. There are several clean, moderately priced Halal, Chinese, Latino, New American, and Caribbean restaurants to choose from.
The building is located in between the B/Q and 2/5 subway lines and minutes from the Flatbush Ave. bus and the fun dollar vans.
I'm willing to give you a short tour of Flatbush, Ditmas Park, or East Flatbush if you ask.
I have a cat that's friendly but not intrusive and the same is true about me :-) Non-smoking women are preferred. All people welcomed.
You may use the PC to check your flight, etc.
Watch TV and put your food in the refrigerator. If you love your own cooking, then cook and clean up afterwards.
There is a laundry room in the basement.
Interaction with guests
I live here so you will see me but I will respect your privacy. Based on my guests' openness, we can have conversations.
Other things to note
While my check-in interval is 12 noon - 9 pm, I need to know your estimated time of arrival (ETA); i.e, when you plan to come to my home. I work in the area & can be here to greet you & settle you in.
Please know that I have a pleasant, cute tomcat. He's friendly but not intrusive. Close your luggage. The cat hasn't done so but he may sleep on your clothes.
I have a list of Brooklyn attractions & subway touring to encourage exploring Brooklyn.
I provided 5 verifications to have potential guests feel comfortable staying with me. I readily accept guests that have uploaded government ID to AirBnB.
Please leave your shoes in the entrance hallway (flip flops provided).
I give accommodation to one adult, or one adult with one infant under two years of age (at no additional charge for the infant), or one adult with one child between 2 yrs and 12 yrs of age (at half the charge of the adult).
You must prove you are the legal guardian of the infant or child before I approve your request. Please understand: there are so many missing children in the United States that this precaution is needed.
This is a quiet building. Please no very loud music and meet your friends outside of the building; however, If you require a friend to lead you around, tell me in advance.
The co-op board doesn't permit us to copy the front door key - "do not copy" tag on the key --so, I will buzz you into the building. No worries: I work very close to home. No worries: You can come in LATE at night--just text me about it.
We'll stay in touch with each other through texting. No phone calls please because I don't always hear the phone but will feel the vibration of a text. BUT, if 1 hour goes by without me replying, text & ring.
There are two wall outlets--one in the kitchen area and the other in the bathroom--that you may use to charge your electronics safely. To use outlets located low to the floor is risky due to the possibility of my cat chewing wires. To plug in the lower outlets is at your own risk and expense.
You may keep food in the refrigerator. Please throw away the remainder in the hallway garbage bag. Please crush your boxes and cartons. Further, you may cook here.
While you're here, it is my responsibility to do the major cleaning. I ask that you rinse out the face bowl and tub after using them. Also, shake water off the tub mat and hang it on the wrung.
There's a lot to do in Brooklyn. I have suggestions :-).
My favorite travel destinations include any part of the world. I've enjoyed meeting the different people; eating the different food, seeing the sites, and becoming more human from the traveling.
As a host, I'm neat and will help you get acclimated to the city. I can give you a personal tour of Brooklyn, if you like. We'll use public transit and walking. If you want to bike it, there are Citibikes. Living in the city made of 5 smaller cities is interesting.
The kind of woman I am is fast walking, friendly, curious, and helpful. These qualities are assets as a teacher and writer. Very important: I have a fluffy male cat that's cordial. I frequently whisk my furniture.
