About this listing
Bright, charming 1.5 bedroom (with twin-sized couch) with exposed brick is a Park Slope gem. Centrally located near 5th avenue shops & dining, 5 blocks from the Barclay's Center subways (2/3/4/5/D/B/Q) & Prospect Park, you'll love your stay here.
This bright and sunny floor-through in Park Slope is only a few blocks from the Barclay's Center and Prospect Park. Located between the bustling coffeeshops, boutique shopping and restaurants of 5th Avenue and sleepy 6th, it's a hop, skip and jump to the restaurants of Prospect Heights, Fort Greene, and Boerum Hill. One comfy queen bed and a long couch that becomes almost a full twin, plus a self-inflating twin mattress (Serta, raised) available upon request. There's a beautiful kitchen, full bath, A/C in two rooms, and a quiet view to backyards. Wake up to birdsong as if you aren't in the city, bike or run in the park (bike available to borrow), visit friends for brunch, or walk over to Barclay's Center to catch a game or a show. If you'd rather stay in, enjoy cable on the nice flatscreen TV, order in & watch movies. Near Fort Greene (Flea Market!), Boerum Hill, Smith St. and Court, a nice meander up to beautiful Prospect Park (where there's a farmer's market on Saturdays), the Brooklyn Museum and the Botanical Gardens. There's a yoga studio, a fantastic coffeeshop, a large grocery store, a great nail salon, laundromat & best massages in Brooklyn across the street and pretty much everything you could want within a mere half block. Atlantic terminal is about five blocks away; you can catch the 2,3,4,5,B,Q, N and R trains, or you can take the B63 bus from 5th down to Cobble Hill / Brooklyn Heights (Sahadi's deli is a must) if you'd rather not go underground. If you're driving, there is alternate side parking on the street (Tues/Weds) and I never have trouble parking.

Other Things to Note
This is an old apartment building and the floors are creaky; please respect my neighbors and live lightly in the apartment, removing your shoes and keeping the music at a respectable volume.
Please respect my neighbors. No smoking. I'll leave guidebooks and do my best to welcome you if you are from out of town. NO extra people, please, unless we have made a special arrangement.
