Sleep in a comfy master bedroom with golden walls and stroll the Paris-like streets of beautiful Fort Greene, Brooklyn by day. Freshen up in a private, connected, spacious airy bathroom for nights on the town. These two rooms are located two blocks from Fort Greene park in the artsy section of Downtown Brooklyn. Near to Q, C and G lines--and walking distance from Brooklyn Academy of Music, award-winning restaurants, live music venues, Dumbo, Williamburg, coffee shops, sexy wine bars and Pratt Art School. Stay in a famous cultural district of New York which is only a 15 minute train ride away from downtown Manhattan. This apartment was designed by interior designer Henry Mitchell (whose work has been featured in New York magazine). Full kitchen access. Lots of free parking available. Citibike rental available on my block as well.

David and I enjoyed our stay at Gordon's lovely home. The pictures on his website are accurate. We loved the neighbourhood of Fort Greene. We had a great meal at Madiba restaurant on DeKalb St. Getting into the city and to other neighbourhoods in Brooklyn was not difficulty. Gordon is an easy-going host. He was friendly and personable and we felt very comfortable in his home. Thanks for hosting us, Gordon!
Gordon's place is well named. Clean and serene. Excellent location, beautiful home (the art is spectacular!) Our room was quiet and very comfortable, great vibe. We enjoyed talking with Gordon when he was around. Looking forward to returning in a couple of months.

Gordon was very accommodating and the room was great, just as described. The location was really convenient and there are some nice cafes and restaurants very close by. It has good train connections within a short walk and you can use the G to get around Brooklyn very easily. The connections to Manhattan are quite efficient as well. We had a great time in NYC and would definitely stay here again.
Best airbnb experience ever! Gordon has a lovely home and the room was just what I needed: it was both clean & serene, and a true oasis. Gordon is a very attentive host. He's got a full life, but he's very responsive -- it was very cold during my week-long stay, and he provided a very effective space heater. I found the room with private bath (which was immaculate and beautifully done, btw) to be very cosy and quiet -- possibly the quietest room in Brooklyn! And if you need to check into work remotely, the wifi connection in the room is great.
But above all, Gordon is a truly wonderful, genuine person. As others have said, there are loads of awards on the wall that tell you he is a gifted musician and songwriter. But there is also a very positive, peaceful vibe that pervades his home, which makes this an extra-special place to stay.
This is my favorite room to stay in in Fort Greene...period.
Gordon is the most wonderful host, and it's always special when we get a chance to talk. Can't wait to get back there.
Our first time using airbnb and it went very smoothly and securely. Also our first time trying out a share apartment. Gordon's room/bathroom was very clean and comfortable . His apartment is located close to all kinds of restaurants, diners (which we enjoyed for breakfast-(The Academy) and coffee shops. Gordon was a welcoming host as well. Using airbnb is a great way to immerse yourself in the city that your visiting!
