The Space

Offering up the spacious living room of our two bedroom apartment for short stays in NYC. Located in Boerum Hill, the apartment is one subway stop away from downtown Manhattan. A minute's walk will bring you to the 2,3,4,5,N,Q,R,B,D,LIRR trains at Atlantic Terminal and a 5 minute walk to the A,C,G lines. Only 2 blocks to the nearest CitiBike station if you want to rent a bike to get around.The apartment is only 2 blocks from from the Barclay's Center if you're looking to catch a concert or game while you're here.

The Neighborhood:
Located in a safe, family friendly neighborhood of Brooklyn, the apartment is situated walking distance from some of Brooklyn's best cafes, restaurants, and bars. We live above one of the best coffee and chocolate shops in NYC. A great vegan restaurant and craft beer shop are accessible through the courtyard. In addition, you're a short walk to Fort Greene, Downtown Brooklyn, or Park Slope. A quick walk, train or bike ride will bring you to the Brooklyn Bridge or many of the cute parks that Brooklyn has to offer. Again, you'll be conveniently located across the street from 9 different train lines that can take you anywhere you need to go in Manhattan, and the G train to Williamsburg/Greenpoint is only a short walk away. An ideal location for any travelers on a budget who are looking to explore all the city has to offer.

The Accommodation:
Our second floor apartment has two bedrooms, but the living room/common area will be yours to stay in. We have two futons in our living room that can be opened simultaneously, accommodating 4 comfortably. One opens to a queen-sized bed, the other to a full-sized bed. The living room has a window air conditioning unit. There is one full bathroom in the apartment, but this shouldn't be an issue since we are typically out of the apartment early on workdays. If you need a lot of privacy or you are a very light sleeper this may not be the best for you. Fresh linens and towels will be provided upon arrival. Laundry in the building. Breakfast foods available upon request, just let us know ahead of time and we can stock the fridge for you, no additional cost!

You are welcome to use our kitchen if needed or join us for meals if we are cooking at home. The living room also has a large flat screen TV equipped with basic cable as well as Netflix, Amazon Prime, and more. WiFi is included. No smoking inside the apartment, but our building also has an outdoor courtyard if you'd like to smoke or hang out outside. There are cafe tables, a large dining table, chairs, and a grill/tools to relax or enjoy a meal outdoors.

Your Roommates:
You'll be sharing the apartment with 3 young professionals, including me, my sister and her boyfriend. The three of us work during the day in marketing, advertising and architecture (respectively). We are all very friendly and willing to recommend some sights or grab a drink during your stay if we're around. Basically, you'll fit in perfectly here if you're relatively clean and respectful of our apartment.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • First of all, I would like to say "This is a great apartment".

    I have stayed in her apartment with my friend. Before I went to her house, I had been worried about our beds because she told me that there were two couches for us and these couches would be our beds. Actually, though I didn't like to sleep on the couches, it was totally no problem to sleep on the couch. It was so comfortable. In addition to that, the room was neat and tidy, and her room mates were so friendly and kind. I spent wonderful NY life thanks to her room.

  • Michelle was a great host! My only regret is that my brother and I were so busy running around NYC that we didn't get enough time to chat with her and her roommates. Michelle provided lots of helpful tips on the area and things to do. The apartment is very conveniently located near Atlantic Terminal and walking distance from great bars, restaurants, etc. It was very convenient that there were two separate beds. The beds are comfortable and the room is quiet at night. All in all a great experience that helped make for a perfect visit to the city.

  • Great apartment in really convenient location - easy to get into Manhattan. Good bars in the area - loads of helpful local knowledge from hosts. Would definitely recommend.

  • Fantastic place! I enjoyed my stay here quite a bit. Michelle, Jan, and Dave were all super nice and accommodating. The apartment was very comfortable and convenient for me getting around to different parts of the city. I ended up leaving earlier than I thought and Michelle was gracious enough to refund me the difference. Would definitely recommend!

  • Michelle's place was even better located than she mentioned, its a stone's throw from the Atlantic Terminal which allowed us to get out and about. Had plenty of space, the beds (I guess they were couches) worked just fine, and everything was more than we expected!

    July 2013
  • Everything was perfect! The apartment is closed to the subway!
    The hosts were nice and weren't in the apartment all the time! So it sounded like we were in our own place! Very clean!
    Thanks again!

    June 2013

    June 2013
  • Michelle and her roommates are very friendly and fun people. :)
    We had a nice stay in their living room. (We were 3)
    Their apartment is really typical and charming, quiet and fully equipped. Many subway stations nearby allow to reach several areas of NYC fast enough.
    En français : Le séjour a été vraiment agréable, Michelle et ses collocataires nous ont donné de nombreux conseils. Le lieu est propre, et bien équipé.

    Thank you again Michelle for your advice and your hospitality.

    See u soon

My name's Michelle, and I'm in my mid 20's. I've lived in LA and Paris before moving back home to New York, where I now work in sales/marketing for a beauty company. I like exploring different cities and countries, which is what brought me to Airbnb in the first place. Outside of work you'll probably find me cooking at home, eating out or just grabbing drinks with friends. I love meeting new people through Airbnb, and like to think I'm pretty friendly. I'm happy to give recommendations for fun spots around my city, and appreciate when others do the same for me.
