The Space


-Bedroom has TWO windows, a QUEEN size FOAM mattress. I love it!

-Dresser drawers available in bedroom! Lamps, overhead lights and plenty of natural lighting!

-This room connects to the Spare room. We usually come through this way and take our shoes and stuff in here to not track in any dirt. This spare room has the separate entrance.

-Air Conditioning window unit in bedroom and living room. We also have fans if you need more air to cool down or the heater comes on automatically in the night. We cannot control it.

-We have a nice chocolate colored COUCH with chase section to lounge back. It also folds into a SOFA BED. It's actually comfy!

Guest Access

-We have a cute kitchen. Use any spices, dishes, shot glasses, dishes, utensils, magic bullet, brita pitcher for cold, clean water! We recycle so please put in the right bin. It's labeled on the wall.

-TOWELS, HAIR DRYER, Toilet paper. Use any of our soap and shampoo if you like! Bathroom entrance is from the living room

Interaction with Guests

Depends! We may be stay at my sister's or out of town. I also have a friend that could come by, if necessary or if the guest wants to hang we will try if we are not working :)

The Neighborhood

This neighborhood is BED-STUY / borderline BUSHWICK, Brooklyn. I love this area. It's not so pretentious and our neighbors are friendly in our street and building. There is a mix of people that live around here, mostly from the Caribbean.

-SAFE neighborhood! Police station on same block, so it can get quiet during the week and more lively on the weekends.

-MORE LAID BACK, Residential, and less people than Manhattan!

We also live on the SAME BLOCK as a POLICE STATION, so it can be a quiet street! A lil more lively on weekends. YOU CAN GET TO THE CITY WITHIN 20 mins!!!! or 10 to Williamsburg!!

Broadway is the street running along under the J train (block away) and has many shops!! Hardware store, Bargain store (has everything!), a fish market, Family dollar, Rainbow, Hair and Nail salon, pizza, ice cream, a Chinese buffet, Radio Shack, Tmobile, manyyyyy corner stores/bodegas, Bank of America (next block on your way to the triain) and a supermarket called "Associated" on Broadway, which is fairly decent!

-Trader Joes is in downtown brooklyn (we take the b52 bus on Gates all the way to Fulton mall in downtown brooklyn, walk to Court st and make a right on it. It's at Atlantic and Court st).

Getting Around

-ONLY ONE BLOCK FROM the J Train (GATES stop)! yet Far enough to NOT hear the train at night!!! Only 15-20 mins to the city (Lower East Side)!!

-There usually is PARKING on my block OR around the corner! Just make sure to move your car during certain hours during the week (I think the sign side 'No parking on our side of the street TUE & FRI from 11am-12:30pm') So remember to move your car! or you'll get a ticket!

ALSO, if you take the J train (away from Manhattan) 3 stops to Broadway Junction, there is the L train which also takes you to East Williamsburg/Bushwick, Williamsburg, and 14th st (East and West Village) in the city. You can also get on the A, C at Broadway Junction.

OH, and sometimes I take the b52 bus (on Gates ave, directly behind and parallel to our street). I sometimes take it to downtown Brooklyn or further north to the L train (Myrtle-Whykoff) which is a bit closer than Broadway Junction.

Other Things to Note

-keys are marked w/the numbers 1,2,3: rubber key for 1st gate, copper for the 2nd and silver for the apt. Silver key opens both doors to living room and spare room.

-REMOTES on WALL: White remote on wall is for projector, Black remote is for the sound and you have to turn on the playstation/use its controller to watch anything. We have NETFLIX!

-WiFi: E63F0C
password: 52974168

-We're also be happily glad to recommend on places to see, eat and go out! (especially if you're a vegetarian/vegan, Rebecca knows good places)

House Rules

-we expect whoever is staying in our place to treat it like how we treat it:
-please remove your shoes at the door,
-clean up after yourself,
-don't leave dishes in sink (we don't want any nyc pests!!!),
-Take out trash and recycle. We have bins and more blue bags for the recycling.

-Smoke out a window or go outside, please!

ALSO, THIS IS IMPORTANT: Our landlord's relatives live in this building, so if they ask PLEASE SAY that YOU ARE OUR FRIENDS, JUST VISITING NYC. We don't see them much so, it will be fine. Plus, they are very friendly people. Say hi if they see you!

-NO DRUGS. Alcohol is fine as long as you don't get crazy and trash the place or make a lot of noise.

You can play music during the day semi loud, just not passed, maybe 11pm! (Neighbors downstairs have kids) so also don't be too loud during the week.

Although Im an animal LOVER, No pets please (it's part of our lease and will leave hair anywhere UNLESS it's caged or a fish?

Please don't bring a bunch of people over! This is not a party house.

ALSO!!! I have a lot of Dia de los Muertos (Day of the dead) figurines and skulls. My family celebrates it since we are Mexican. It is a catholic holiday in which you honor your dead loved ones and celebrate life, so don't think we are into voodoo or anything. So hopefully you respect my stuff by not touching, stealing or judging me :) It's my culture!

Don't touch projector! We have easy remotes to use to turn on the projector which is hooked up to the playstation and surround sound. It can get really loud so try and turn down when it does.

Sorry for the rules. Be respectful, especially our neighbors. We love our home. Hope you will enjoy it and your stay in New York! It's a fun town!!
