Interaction with Guests
I reside at this listing (and sometimes work from home), but I am available to talk to my guests when they are around.
Friendly, youthful, diverse, dog friendly, lovely neighborhood great little shops, cafés, restaurants and entertainment. This neighborhood is a great place to hang out and explore and not an outpost from which you must escape into Manhattan. It quintessential New York. In the immediate neighborhood are the Brooklyn Museum, the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens, Prospect Park, and the Barclays Center is in walking distance. The immediate neighborhood also features excellent restaurants, venues offering jazz, blues and indie rock. So stay in Brooklyn or run around Manhattan. Either way, you will have a great time.
Six subway lines and 3 bus lines in close proximity for quick rides into Manhattan or around Brooklyn. There is a subway stop on the block. Getting into Manhattan is very quick, only 4 stops to Bowling Green stop on the 4 or 5 trains (less than 20 minutes).
Travel to and from JFK by taxi is about 25 mins and $40-45. By public transportation it is about 1 to 1-1/2 hours depending on time of day and day of week.
