Great location, spacious room in two-bedroom apartment. Courtyard access, nice living room, and cheery kitchen. Super close to bars and restaurants.
Spacious, private room in a ground floor, two-bedroom apartment. It has its own entrance to the main hallway, giving you the option of entering directly to it, or entering through the front door and walking through the living room. The room you're renting has a (non-working) fireplace, two windows, a closet, table and chairs, chest, and comfy, full-size bed. Included are clean sheets and towels, duvet, body wash, shampoo, conditioner, and toothpaste.
I live in the other private room, and will be home during your stay, although I work a bunch and am never home as much as I'd like!
The apartment offers access to a tree-shaded courtyard (which is shared with the three other apartments in the building), a nice living room with tons of art and plants, and cheery kitchen with all the cooking tools you'd need, and a stove and toaster oven, if you'd like to cook! I also have a drip coffee maker and a French press, and have tea and coffee for you. The apartment is nicely decorated throughout, check out the pictures. And when you arrive, don't judge a book by its cover; while the outside of the building is (ahem) "old school" and graffiti-covered, the inside is homey and spacious, with exposed brick and high ceilings. And overall, in my opinion, way nicer and more homey than the new glass and steel behemoths that are popping up all over the area. Please note that because the apartment is so centrally located, and the bedroom you'll be renting is adjacent to the street, you may hear the murmur of folks walking by outside, especially on weekends. If you are especially sensitive to noise when going to sleep, this apartment may not be the best choice for you.
To reach the subway, it's an approx. 6-minute walk to the Lorimer/Metropolitan L or G train, or a 10-minute walk to the Bedford L train. It's an approx. 10-minute walk to the Broadway J/M/Z train.
You're just minutes away from tons of restaurants, bars, stores, and a grocery store on Grand Street, Havermeyer, and Roebeling. I'll leave you with a guide to my local favorites, as well as suggestions if you have a specific hankering. I love to meet travelers and give recommendations! I will also leave you with maps to Brooklyn and Manhattan. Many travelers who stay with me are surprised how much time they end up staying in Williamsburg and other areas of Brooklyn, and not as much time in Manhattan as they expected. Don't be surprised if you find yourself doing the same.
Feel free to contact me with any questions about my place, or the area at large! I love my neighborhood and am happy to share it with cool folks, and want you to make the most of your stay.
Access to entire apartment, except for my bedroom, which I will be in.

I have neighbors who live in the apartment above me. They're cool, but please be courteous, especially about noise later in the evening.
