Interaction with guests
Depends! Whatever you want and depending on our schedule. We usually stay at my sister's. We also have a friend that could come by if necessary or if the guest wants to hang we will try to meet up if we are not working :)
We may be out of town and will have Rebecca's cousin, Daniel or another friend to let you in.
Other things to note
-keys are marked w/the numbers 1,2,3: one for 1st door, 2 for the 2nd door and 3 for both entrances to the apt. Silver key opens both doors to the living room and spare room.
-REMOTES on WALL: White remote 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!
-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)
-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!!

I am Rebecca and I moved to NYC in 2008 from Houston, Texas. I'm of Mexican descent but born and raised in TEXAS from a big family. I am an preschool teacher here in Brooklyn.
My husband is James and we got married Friday the 13th! He is from England and this is our first apartment together.
We love our new place and we love traveling. We had roommates at our other place, but decided to get a new apartment. However, NYC-livin' can be expensive so we thought we'd join this site!
Rebecca - I love music! Punk rock, swing, 50's doo wop, rockabilly, ska, Industrial, hip hop, The Smiths! I love going to shows, 80s clubs, traveling, helping others and I love my job. I got my Bachelors in Early Childhood Education, a Masters in Special Education; kids are hilarious. In a way, it's a dream job (you get a lot of holidays and summers off !!) Therefore, I love to travel. I met my husband few years ago in Williamsburg, Brooklyn when he vacationed here (he's from Birmingham, England, but moved here from London).
James -loves all kinds of films, especially bands from England ha. He has a degree in Film, he enjoys reading, dive bars, the Libertines, Serge Gainsbourg, David Bowie, Oasis, Happy Mondays, the Stone Roses, and the Rolling Stones, he has traveled the world, is very fun, funny and friendly!
We love meeting new people!!
