There is only one guest kitchen on the upstairs floor. It is fully functional, modern, all stainless steel. It is shared among the guests of the three rooms.

Per month the Blue room is $1350.
Note: The $1350 monthly price for the Blue room is calculated per 4 weeks (28 to 30 days) even though airbnb does not have a way to calculate the price on a per 4 week basis but on a 30 days basis. In other words, regardless of what airbnb will show as a price on the dashboard, in the event that you will want to rent the room for 28 or 29 days, the price will be 1350$ minimum for four weeks and will remain $1350 from 28 to 30 days. It will then go up 90$ per day.

We are in New York! And Brooklyn is the new hip place of the city, with plenty of culture and shopping during the day and an exciting night life: restaurants, bars, clubs, cinemas, theaters, museums, art galleries, the Brooklyn Academy of Music with a full program of events 365 days a year, a fantastic park -Prospect Park- and so many different neighborhoods to explore. Our neighborhood is called Bedford Stuyvesant: it is African American, Caribbean, and African, with plenty of music, ethnic restaurants and coffee shops. It is surrounded by Crown Heights on the south, Clinton HIll on the West and Williamsburg on the North. Nearby are the Brooklyn Museum with the seond largest Egyptian collection in the world, the Brooklyn Children Museum, The Brooklyn Botanical Garden, Prospect Park, The Brooklyn Library, The Brooklyn Academy Of Music, and the Brooklyn Bridge.
Bedford Stuyvesant is close to both JFK airport and La Guardia airport and the Long Island Railroad, which gives you quick access to Long Island.
We are close to Clinton Hill, Fort Greene, Williamsburg, Park Slope, Downtown Brooklyn, Brooklyn Heights, and Dumbo.
We are 20 minutes away from Manhattan on the blue line (C and A trains).
Taxi cabs are available (both metro cabs and private taxis)

Other Things to Note
Linens and towels are provided by us.
CATS ON THE PREMISES!! Not in your rooms of course, but they are freely allowed to go around the house, so you will meet them! And their fluffy hair!
-No smoking, no pets, and no loud music.
-Just leave the room in the condition in which you found it and we will be happy.
-Clean after yourself in the kitchen. Leave the sink clean, always. Wash your dishes or put them in the dishwasher making sure that clean dishes are not still in it. Dispose of the garbage. Take out days for the garbage are Tuesday and Thursday night for regular garbage, and Sunday night for regular garbage, heavy item, and recyclables.
-Always, always, always lock the entrance doors behind yourself when you leave and when you return home.
-Once a week sheets and towels will be changed and bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen will be cleaned.
-If you rented the room for one week there is a cleaning fee of 25$, if you rented it for two weeks the fee is $40. If you rented the Red room together with the Blue and the Purple room for one week the fee is $50, for two weeks is $60.
-If you rent monthly, cleaning fee remains 25$ per week.. Airbnb will only charge the first week of cleaning with your rent every month. It is then your responsibility to pay us the difference directly, either before you arrive or while here, on a weekly basis. If you'd rather clean your own room you still owe us 15$ weekly for cleaning the common spaces (kitchen, hallways, living room, stairs, foyer, stoop).
-Play with the cats, especially Sophia. She is the calico one.
-If you are a well trained soprano, contralto, tenor, bass, baritone, or a voce bianca you must sing in the tub.
We had a very pleasant stay in the blue room. It has a genuine and romantic atmosphere, which makes you feel at ease. We would certainly recommend it. We loved the cats, especially Olivia. Tiziana called a taxi for us at the end of our stay. Thank you for that!
I am super late with responding but Tippy was A-mazing!!! When I first arrived it was cold and I was ready for summer wether coming form New Orleans, but she went out of her way to help me find warm clothes since I had none, gave great recommendations for food, and was really like a mom away from home! I absolutely adored my room and everyone that stayed there was nice. I made some really good friends there and hope to come back!
Oh, and the cats! they were so sweet and loving!
Thank you so much for letting us stay in your lovely home Tippy and JT! It had everything we needed to get out and explore NYC. Was wonderful talking to you when we saw you. A fun and very memorable part of our honeymoon.
Lovely space, lovely people, lovely cats. We stayed for a full month and enjoyed living here. The subway two blocks away makes everything accessible, the kitchen is well-stocked, and Tippy and JP are ever-gracious hosts. HIGHLY recommend.
My friend and I needed a place in new York for a long weekend. Tippy's place was perfect. Quiet , warm and inviting. Tippy is a lovely person. Very friendly and ready to help with any questions you may have. I loved the little quiet neighborhood and the subway was a block and a half away. The room and bed were very comfortable and very clean and very spacious . The kitchen had everything you could possibly need. Great environment and when I go back I would stay at Tippy's again.!!!!
Had a great stay in New York in this characterful brownstone in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn. Very good instructions on getting to the house on arrival (arrived in the evening, NB actual entrance quite unobtrusive, with ivy over one side). Tippy also kindly sorted out cab booking back to the airport on departure. Excellent transport links once there make this an excellent base from which to explore Manhattan and Brooklyn. Was so busy doing this I didn't get time to talk enough to Tippy, which was clearly my loss. Ah well, there's always next time, would be delighted to stay there again.
