This place is ideal for a clean, responsible, and matured female visitor to NYC that wants to be in a safe and clean space, with someone that is very hospitable and trustworthy.
I am offering the use of an air-conditioned double room in a 1 bedroom apartment. The bedroom has a comfortable queen size bed, WI-FI, and TV. Fresh bed linen and towels are provided. The clean and tidy bathroom is just off of the bedroom. This you will share with me. I have a hair dryer and iron available for your use. You are welcome to use the living room and have full access to the kitchen to prepare meals. You are welcome to store food in the refrigerator and in the kitchen.
The apartment is located in historic and multi-cultural Bedford-Stuyvesant, which borders Williamsburg and is located 10 minutes away via the nearby G subway. It is a short walk to to the A/C subway lines, which take 10 minutes to lower Manhattan (New World Trade Center, Battery Park City, South Street Seaport, Staten Island Ferry, Century 21, Wall Street, and New York Stock Exchange). The A express train or C local train will also take you to Soho, 34th Street, Times Square, Central Park, Upper West Side, and Harlem. You can also connect quite easily to get to the Lower East Side and the Upper East Side. There are supermarkets, restaurants, bars, delis, laundromats, and Citibike stations within walking distance of the apartment.
In about 5 minutes on the A train, you can get to downtown Brooklyn (Fulton Street Mall) which has endless shopping options. A few blocks from the Fulton Street Mall, you'll find Cobble Hill and Carroll Gardens, which have many restaurants and boutiques. Brooklyn Bridge, Brooklyn Bridge Park, Dumbo, and Brooklyn Heights are nearby. A short bus ride away, you'll be in Park Slope, where you can people watch whilst enjoying a latte.
The Barclays Center, Brooklyn Academy of Music, Atlantic Center Mall, and Brooklyn Bridge are all within walking distance of the downtown area, whilst Prospect Park, Brooklyn Botantical Garden and Grand Army Plaza can be reached quickly via subway or bus.
The apartment is a quick bus ride or 15 minute walk to Clinton Hill/Fort Greene, where there is a great cultural vibe. There are many restaurants, cafes, and small boutiques in this area.
The apartment can be easily reached from JFK airport via the shuttle and the A train, so you can save money if you don't want to take a cab. It takes about 25 - 30 minutes via cab and costs around $35.00. I can arrange a taxi for your departure.
I look forward to hosting you! :-)

A perfectly comfortable place in a perfectly safe neighbourhood with a perfectly welcoming host for an unfussy budget traveller. I was extra lucky to try Sorita's cheese scones - delicious!!
I had a very nice time at Sorita's! The room was clean and cosy, the neighborhood very nice and friendly. Sorita was also very helpful recommending me good restaurant places and addresses, and explaining me how to read this crazy subway map!
Sorita is a great Host. I felt very comfortable and had a really fun time with her. She is very helpful and also has great cooking skills :)
I had no problems to go to Manhattan or the airport with the subway. I can really recommend her! Thank you for everything!
Sorita is a great host! I had a wonderful Christmas holiday with her and her tasty cake:) She offered many advice which I found it very useful. She is also a good company if I want to have a talk. The room is very clean and neat. I felt very comfortable staying there. Strongly recommend it to girls who want to visit NYC and make friend with New Yorker!
Ich habe zum ersten mal diese Form der Unterkunft gewählt und es war die beste Entscheidung meines Lebens. Es war auch der erste Urlaub, in den ich allein gefahren bin, und ich hätte es nicht besser treffen können als mit Sorita. Sie war einfach total herzlich und hilfsbereit. Es war toll, nach einem aufregenden Tag in New York "nach Hause" zu kommen, denn so hat es sich angefühlt. Das kann einem ein Hotel einfach nicht bieten. Sorita, du bist wirklich ein Engel und ich danke dir, dass du mit deiner Hilfe und deiner tollen Persönlichkeit meinen Aufenthalt in New York so toll gestaltet hast! Ich hatte es ja beim Abschied schonmal gesagt: Solltest du jemals nach Deutschland kommen, hier steht auf jeden Fall ein Bett für dich bereit ;-)
Das Appartment war sehr sauber und man hat sich auf Anhieb wohl gefühlt. Ich kann es jeder Frau nur empfehlen, die es allein nach Brooklyn / New York verschlägt. Es war perfekt!
I felt very comfortable and secured with Sorita.
Sorita is a great host and her velvet cake is delicious!
Thanks to her advices, I didn't have any problem in navigating around NY.
I really enjoyed to stay with Sorita and if I decided to come back to NY, I would like to stay with her again.
Thank you Sorita.
Sorita was an amazing hostess!! She was very knowledgeable about the city and getting around. Make sure to ask her questions so as to not get lost like I did haha.. And make sure to get in touch with her before arriving so she can help plan your visit.
About the Host, Sorita

I enjoy traveling, meeting people from diverse cultures, baking, trying different cuisines, socializing, concerts, watching travel shows and dancing. I enjoy walking to nearby Fort Greene Park or all the way to Lower Manhattan via the Brooklyn Bridge, and attending free concerts/festivals in NYC's beautiful parks during the summer.
I have a keen interest in what's going on in the rest of the world. I am involved in cultural exchange meetup groups, which gives me the opportunity to meet people from all over the world. One group, a language exchange meetup allows me to practice my Spanish whilst helping non-native English speakers to practice and improve their English.
I love shopping and am a bargain shopper at heart. I always like to make sure that visitors to NYC get the best deals for their money. Moreover, as someone who travels solo often, I know how important it is for women to be in a clean, comfortable, and safe environment.
PLEASE NOTE - VERY IMPORTANT
Kindly send me a message before trying to book. I will respond to you as soon as possible and let you know, if the room is available. You'll get a clean, tidy, safe and comfortable place to stay in, and a kind and helpful host; I'd like a guest who is responsible, respectful, pleasant, drama free and willing to clean up after herself. I do this because I enjoy traveling and like to connect with people from diverse backgrounds. I've met some really wonderful people through this service and hope to meet many more. Thank you. I look forward to hosting you. :-)
