About this listing

Thank you for taking the time to look at my listing. Please read the full description and house rules before contacting me with any questions. Thanks!

PLEASE NOTE: This listing is for a private room in the apartment. I am in residence as well.

The space

The room can comfortably accommodate two people. This apartment is a private abode that has a full time live in resident. That means you will be more of a roommate than a guest, so make yourself at home! Your room and common areas are yours to use freely and you are free to come and go when you want. The room is perfect for people who are looking for a safe, friendly and clean environment as a base camp for whatever activities you have planned for your stay in New York City. This is a pre-war building so it is very old. The neighbors are active during the day so this is not a great place for you if you want to be here to sleep after about 10am. If you are looking to stay in a lavish, spacious and opulent luxury suite, please review your options for one of the abundant hotel rooms available in and around the City. Please note: THE ROOM IS SMALL.

The apartment is centrally located in the block and is devoid of the normal city noises like traffic and honking horns so you can get the quiet rest you need but still enjoy what NYC has to offer. The heart of Manhattan is easily 20 minutes away on one of the many nearby subway stops.

About the Neighborhood:
Greenpoint is one of the safest, quietest, quaintest, prettiest and most convenient neighborhoods the City has to offer. Five blocks away you have the East River Ferry, which for four dollars will shuttle you directly to Midtown (as well as Williamsburg, Dumbo and Governor's Island). The G train is less than a 5-minute walk from the location and connections can be made to the L, E, M and 7 trains. All trains are within walking distance. McCarren Park is close by as well as playgrounds, a track and a Farmer's Market on Saturdays during he summer months. If you have a car, parking is relatively easy to find in the neighborhood. Regular alternative side of the street parking rules apply.

About the apartment:
The apartment has two bedrooms and a small bathroom with shelving space available for your toiletries. The kitchen has all the necessary appointments and a small kitchen table that seats 4. The living room has a sofa bed and a flat screen TV with a DVD player. I have an extensive DVD collection that you may browse and watch including sci-fi/horror, romance, action and more!

The room you will be staying in has a full size bed. The room faces the sunny and quiet balcony. A bath towel, a hand towel as well as toiletries such as tooth brushes, toothpaste, cotton swabs, body wash and mouth wash are provided as a courtesy for guests and is provided at no additional charge.

Please note that this listing is for a private room only. I am in residence in the apartment full time. Guests have access to the full apartment except for the main bedroom. If you want the room you MUST be okay with this.

By far the cleanest Air BnB in which I've ever stayed. Patricia exceeded our expectations as a host. We felt safe, comfortable, and welcome. I highly recommend Patricia's place. We loved staying there and being close to everything in Greenpoint: great food, coffee shops, the G train! Next time I'm town we'll try to book!

My stay at Patricia's was okay. She was very communicative and gave me lots of privacy.
Patricia User Profile
Response from Patricia:
Ivy gave me some feedback! The first was simply "noise" and that it was not accurately reflected in the description. This is an apartment building where other people live. This is not a hotel. I do state that the neighbors are active during the day. I can't stop them from being noisy during the day because they live here too. If you would like a completely quiet place to stay during the day please find a hotel where you have more ability to control something like that. The second complaint was "entering the home". I showed Ivy how to open the door when she got here. Either she was not paying attention or she didn't get it but she called me when she had trouble and I was right here in the apartment to show her how to open the door right away. I am sorry Ivy had an issue with her stay but I was here to field any complaints she had and make her feel comfortable. It's unfortunate she did not take advantage of my offer.

Patricia is a good communicator and a gracious host. The accommodations were as described. It is a small room in a small apartment in a convenient part of Brooklyn. Good value. It seems like Green Point is home to many Polish speakers and a large number of Thai restaurants.
