The Space

Hi there!

Available for short term stay is ONE of three separate small private rooms, each about 90 SF, with full bed mattresses lofted above the floor with some short steps up. There is a roof with some chairs and a good view of the Manhattan skyline.

It's very near delis, fun bars, really great restaurants, awesome pizza, a nice cafe, 15 minute walk or 5 minute b24 bus ride to the Graham L subway stop and 15 minute walk to the Nassau G, and 30 minutes total travel time to Union Square. That is a central subway hub. From there you can get to Times Square, Grand Central, Chinatown, and Wall Street area in 5-10 minutes, or the major museums in 15 minutes.

It is a 15-20 minute walk to Williamsburg, a very nice Brooklyn area with many great shops, restaurants, bars and a huge music scene. There are free transfers between the buses and trains. Also it's right off the Morgan exit of the BQE/395, which makes it a 10 minute, $20 dollar cab ride from LaGuardia and 20 minute $40 ride from JFK.

This is in a big 1,200 SF loft with 12 Foot ceilings, hard wood floors, fridge, microwave, shower(shared, across the hall, through my kitchen), 2 half bathrooms, a couch, recliner, kitchen table, two computers, and wifi. There's a lot of big windows, and great light during the day! I'll provide clean sheets and towels.

The space is a converted warehouse space with rooms built out above a hardware store and next to a gas station. It's pretty quiet other than the constant whooshing of the highway nearby, which is not an issue for most people. It's kind of like the ocean waves! When the windows are all closed, it's hardly noticeable. The rooms do not lock, but the apartment itself is behind a series of three locked doors.

It's right across the street from a nice residential neighborhood with all your needs.

Sometimes there's band practice or recording across the hall, but it's rarely noticeable in the bedrooms, and not very loud in the living room.

There's a full fridge, a double hotplate, a toaster oven, pots and pans, and salt and pepper for all your basic cooking needs.

There's also a teapot and tea, and a coffee machine and coffee, for your morning rituals.

There is a TV and a projector to watch movies on VHS, Blu-Ray, DVD, and Netflix! I have a pretty big and varied collection. Also I have a nice record player, and a pretty good collection of Records and CDs. There's an input to connect your iPod or other MP3 player to. There's a piano to play also, if you're so musically inclined!

I live in the building, so I'll be around pretty often if you need anything.

There are no animals here, but some pets may be OK for a few days.

Parking is plentiful, right in front, safe and free.

Available by the day, week or month for a couple months. If your dates don't look available on the calender, please inquire, as I have multiple rooms, and this system is sometimes inaccurate. Please read and follow the rules. Hope to talk soon!

Guest Access

Minimal but functional kitchen, 2 half bathrooms and one with a shower. Roof. Street parking. Living room with stereo, records, CDs, TV, Videos and Netflix. Lots of books and graphic novels.

Interaction with Guests

I live across the hall, so I usually stick to myself except for check-in, though if I'm not too busy, I'm often up for a beer around the corner!

The Neighborhood

Within a 5 minute walk, there's 4 bars. Two of them have great beers and food, and one also has a very nice whiskey collection. Two awesome pizza places are also 5 minutes away. Within a 15-30 minute walk this increases by at least 10x!

Best BQQ in the city: Fette Sau
A really fun bar any night: Union Pool
A great venue and fun place: Brooklyn Bazaar
Can't miss Smorgasburg and Brooklyn Flea during the warmer months!

Getting around

It's a 15 minute walk to the L train, or a 5 minute bus ride.

There's free parking right in front.

It's super easy by car, as it's right next to the Morgan Ave and McGuinness Ave exits of I-278.

LaGuardia takes 10 minutes and 20 bucks in a taxi! Double both for JFK, and triple for Newark. All are about 60-90 minutes by public transport.

  • Not fancy but fun. Close to all of the things you'll want to see in Brooklyn, and you can get to Manhattan in 30 minutes. I had a very nice stay there. Andrea is great.

  • Great location, great place a very friendly and available host. I definitely recommend the flat.

  • Great stay! Everything was as expected. The spot is amazing, with the view of Manhattan on the rooftop and the proximity with every cool neighbourhood of Brooklyn.

  • This place is comfy and nice, i had a private room with bed and couch and the common room is a big room with every kind of things from couch and TV with a wonderful old-stile stereo with turntable and big speakers to a big studio pro-mixer, from the kitchen with fridge and sink and cooking stuf to any sort of stuff you can imagine.. and a big roof-top where you can go to chill out looking at the panorama or at the traffic on the expway in front of it. Staying there is quiet, Andrea is friendly and available to help you if you need, and sets you clean sheets and towels when you arrive. He helped me when i got to make a package to send my stuff for shipping, too.
    I just have to say that the place could be more clean and well-kept and unfortunatetly is a little far to reach or to leave when you want to move around in williamsbourg or going to Manhattan: the nearest Subway station is 15 minutes walk and the bus that stops near this place has long gaps between eveery passage, so if you don't have a car, a bike or a skateboard, you'll have to walk some, maybe in the middle of the night (i have to say that the neighbothoood is safe and quiet, sp don't worry!)

  • I loved Andrea´s apartment! its well located in Brooklyn, you dont have to walk much from the metro station and the building is amazing. You will get privacy in your room and also theres a piano if you want to play.
    The experience was great overall

  • Stayed together with my brother at one of the three little bedrooms that Andrea provides in his loft. The living room is quite big, but you share it with him and other travellers that may be there at the same time. The shower is actually in his apartment, which means you just have to cross the hallway.
    Williamsburg is worth to discover. It's full of hipsters, nice little corners and coffee places. It's a real cool crowd and it has some nice bars and clubs to go out at the weekends.

  • Alors... Par où commencer ?? SALETEES ? INSALUBRITES ? ou BRUITS ?
    Sensibles s'abstenir !
    Nous avions prévu 15 jours ici, qui ne furent pas sans peine.
    C'est pas cher mais on sait pourquoi, comme nous a dit Andrea "ce n'est pas un Manoir"

    Chambre sale, poussiéreuse, salle de bain étroite et sale (tapis de douche pas lavé une fois en 15 jrs, serviettes de bain également, au bout d'une semaine elles sentaient l'humidité, nous avons demandé à ce qu'elles soient lavées, mais rien, nous avons finit nos vacances avec nos serviette de plage. Nos draps n'ont également pas été changé alors qu'il fait très chaud dans la chambre avec aucune aération seine (car l'autoroute passe à 10m de la fenètre...)
    En parlant de l'autoroute 2eme gros point noir du séjour, après une journée de vadrouille on a envie de bien dormir, et ben NON !
    Conseil: prenez vos boules Quiese, votre masque de nuit, et somnifère, pour être sur de ne pas être réveillé par les vibrassions provoquées par le passage d'ENORMES poids lourds.
    L'été avec le climatiseur en place c'est comme si on dormait la fenêtre ouverte...
    Les portes des chambres sont elle aussi ouvertes 24/24, aucune possibilité de verrouiller.
    Et pour finir je vais vous parler de la pièce de vie commune avec un bordel sans nom, oubliez également l'idée de vous faire à manger sur place, la gazinière sur les photos n'est plus et les poêles sont inutilisables, nous avons également co-habité avec un nuage de moucheron car les poubelles sont vidées quand il a le temps... et restent stockées dans la cage d'escalier qui mène au toit.
    Et le must c'est le réfrigérateur que j'ai finit par javellisé entièrement, car sincèrement c'était un nid a bactérie.
    Ceci n'est pas qu'un avis ou constat personnel. Tous nos colocataires peut importe la nationalité ou l'âge sont d'accord avec nous... C'est SALE...
    ... BON SÉJOUR AILLEURS ;)

  • Andrea is handles it with kindness !
    He showed me his recommend spot in Brooklyn and talked with him about music.
    The property is long way from the Nassau Avenue station. but It's not inconvenient because corner store is right near the property.
    Thank you for your kindness ! This trip is good experience for me !

  • It was very nice to be hosted by Andrea. He is an interesting person and he has a cool place to share, if you have the chance take a look in his studio or listen to his music, very various but you will find your choice. There are many rooms so you are never alone and you will meet other interesting persons! The room is more than ok, coffee and tea for free and you are close to the lively center of Williamsburg, Brooklyn. In the night a lot is happening there and during day time you can enjoy this amazing part of NY. I enjoyed my stay and I advice to pass by when you can!

About
Audio Engineer and Sales Associate living in New York City for 12 years now. I know a lot about the city if you need any advice. I keep my own home nice, and have the respect to keep others nicer. Easy to get along with, even though I like to keep to myself a lot to read, listen to records, and work. I sublet my rooms very frequently and haven't had any big problems. I've been doing this over three years now, so I'm getting good at it!
