Interaction with Guests
3 other rooms in the apartment are rented on this site. You may have interactions with other guests in the common areas. I work very long days so you may only see me on occasion. My roommate Dave is home more often, he serves as a host when I am not available. You can view my other rooms under the "Other Listings" section.
The neighborhood is a Puerto Rican immigrant community. Mixed with old gritty industrial areas and new luxury buildings. All kinds of creative types have been filing into Bushwick and a considerable amount of trendiness is trickling in from its ultra-hip neighbor to the west, Williamsburg. New dive bars, bodegas, and gallery spaces continue to flourish, fueled by the intrepid movers and shakers that are pouring into Bushwick’s converted loft spaces. Although Bushwick is busy reinventing itself, a somewhat grungy heart still beats beneath its remodeled exterior. The Neighborhood Is Very Safe. I have been here for 10 years without any issues. My guests have never had any issues as well. There are many people around on the streets at all hours. We are right next to the train for those who are out late in the evening as well.
We are 1 block away from the Dekalb stop L train, 15 minutes to the city and a few blocks away from the JMZ train. USE HOPSTOP FOR SUBWAY DIRECTIONS! It is also available as an app. This will tell you much more clear detailed instructions on getting here from the airport and getting around the city in general. The house is approximately: 20 minutes away from LaGuardia Airport 25 minutes away from JFK Airport 35-45 minutes away from Newark Airport (these are average times with minimal traffic)
Other Things to Note
The rooms are cleaned before arrival and upon exit. Fresh linens and towels are provided. I do not provide toiletries. The bathroom is shared and can be busy at times in the morning, I like to remind all guests to please keep bathroom time to a minimum for other guests. Check in time is 2:00. Check out time is 12:00 NOON. I unfortunately do not store luggage or personals after checkout time. The earliest guests can arrive is 2:00 to allow former guests to depart and rooms to be cleaned. There is a quick turnover with guests and exchanging keys is difficult with my work. Please arrange travel accordingly. Profile pictures are very helpful to have up; it's nice to have a face with a name. (I Unfortunately Do Not Allow Guests Under The Age Of 18 Or Guests With Serious Medical Conditions).

Great host, nice place, close to a lot of cool bars and restaurants. Awesome garden in the back too! Would def stay there again.
Great location to transportation. Quick walk to the bus stop that took us to AfroPunk. The apartment was clean and easy to locate. I loved that everything was labeled. As soon as the question came to me, there was something to point it out. I do wish I would've taken Mark up on the free coffee, but we didn't have time. Overall, a great time.
We had a great time staying in this room. It's a good size apartment and our room had its own restroom which was nice. There was a fan in the room which was great because it can get really hot. You are allowed access to the garden which was really beautiful and nice to enjoy a cup of coffee tea etc. There are a lot of amenities available to use which made our trip easy and smooth. Mark is always available via email or phone which I really appreciate. The room and common grounds are very clean! The neighborhood is very close to the L Train which takes you to Manhattan and other connections. There's a market nearby for food/water and plenty of cute coffee shops. I really enjoyed the area, and house accommodations. Would definitely come back.
The room is in a good location and was easy to find. I would, however, check out some of Mark's other rooms in the same house first if they are available because the purple room does not have any windows and can get a little bit hot. Other than that, the garden was very nice and we enjoyed our stay.
It was a nice place to stay at! The instructions to get into the apartment was very self explanatory and Mark answered my questions without no hesitation! Enjoyed our night to stay. (:

About the Host, Mark
