The Space

Large private Bedroom with a private 1/2 bathroom (sink/toilet). A Shower is in the shared bathroom upstairs. Room has one small window (this faces an airshaft and receives minimal sunlight), a large office desk, dresser, nightstand, large mirror and a hanger rack. There is a spiral staircase that leads to the kitchen (a picture of the staircase is attached, it can be a bit cumbersome with luggage). There is a private door from the room that leads to the backyard/garden. This is not a sunny room. However, it is very quiet, a great spot for those who are looking to escape the noisy city or sleep in late after a long night out! If you are looking for a sunnier room, please see my other listings.

Guest Access

Guests will have access to the Fully-Equipped Kitchen, shared Bathroom with Shower, Washer/Dryer and Backyard/Garden.

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. Dave serves as a host when I am not available. You can view my other rooms under the "Other Listings" section on my profile.

The Neighborhood

Many love this trendy neighborhood that is Bushwick. It's not for everyone, but some find it their favorite neighborhood in NYC! It 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 12 years without any issues. My guests have given me lots of positive feedback. 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. There are many great new restaurants and bars nearby, check out my Guidebook on this site and in all guest rooms for local favorites! We are also located across the street from Wyckoff Heights Medical Center! This is a Great Location for short-term Medical Students!

Getting Around

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 GOOG MAPS FOR SUBWAY DIRECTIONS! It is also available as an app. This will give you clearer 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 thoroughly cleaned before arrival and upon exit. Fresh linens and towels are provided. 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 as a courtesy for other guests. Check-In time is 2:00 pm or any time thereafter. Check-Out time is 12:00 NOON. I unfortunately do not store luggage or personal items after Check-Out time. The earliest guests can arrive is 2:00 pm to allow former guests time to depart and for the rooms to be cleaned. 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).

Please Let Me Know If You Have Any Questions or Concerns, so We can Address any potential Issues Immediately! I try to keep everyone happy who stays with us!

Thank You,
