The Space

My apartment is located on of the most central streets in the Ft. Greene/Clinton Hill area of Brooklyn. It is spacious, with hard wood floors, artwork, wifi, cable, and a view of the common shared area garden. The room you will be staying in has a full sized futon, air conditioning and I will provide fresh sheets and towels for your use. The room can comfortably accommodate up to 2 people.

Ft. Greene/Clinton Hill is a great area; filled with quiet, tree lined streets and amazing restaurants and bars all within walking distance. I am within two blocks of the C train line that can get you to Soho/Tribeca within 15mins. Just a short walk further and you are at the Atlantic Ave-Barclays Terminal which is the 3rd largest subway hub in the city. For basketball fans and music lovers we are 5 mins away from Brooklyn's newest attraction Barclays Center. Brooklyn Nets basketball and Jay-Z, Coldplay and Rihanna are at your fingertips.

My place is always neat and organized. As a traveler myself I understand the importance of spending time in a welcoming and warm environment when on the road and I am glad to provide that.
I am quite social and active and can provide as much input to your time in NYC as is wanted. I have lived in NYC all my life and I know NYC extremely well.

  • I had a pleasant stay at Philips' apartment! The location is very close to well connected subway lines in a really nice neighborhood. Too bad I didn´t meet him in person... But he was really kind and communicated very well!

  • We stayed with phil for 4 nights & loved every minute! The location a as fabulous, fort Greene is such a great neighbourhood- quintessential NYC! He was so welcoming & accommodating from the offset, his communication was excellent. The apartment was great, really spacious, clean & comfortable. We stayed in two other areas in manhattan before Phils, this was by far the biggest & most comfortable room we'd had with plenty of hanging space. He was so helpful with brilliant recommendations for different places to see & eat. If you're looking for a real experience of an NYC neighbourhood this is definitely for you! Thanks for having us Phil, I'm sure we'll be back!

  • Phil is a wonderful host, very helpful with directions and places to visit. Plus he is a genuine good guy easy to talk to with. His place in brooklyn is very convenient as an access place to Manhattan. There are two subway lines within a couple of blocks of his flat that would take you directly to times square and the broadway theatres. I did not take advantage of his kitchen and or living area because I was out pretty much the whole time I was there. But they looked good and seemed to be fine. I would stay at Phil's again.

  • Staying at Phillip's couldn't be easier. Great location, great host, comfy room. I'll be back.

  • Good host: Philip is great with late arrival and early departure times. He checked with me ahead of time to confirm my late arrival and ensured he was up to receive me. He generously shared his home with me. I would recommend him.

  • My girlfriend and I came to New York from Boston for a 4-day weekend and had a wonderful stay at Philip's place! Cozy room, a very clean and comfortable apartment in a nice neighborhood, greeted us upon our arrival with clean linens and towels and Philip had great advice throughout the weekend on where to grab food and coffee. Philip definitely has the host routine down and offers a great place to stay!
