I am able to provide lots of information about touristic things to do In NYC and also the more underground arty events in Brooklyn and Manhattan including many FREE nights to museums, outdoor productions and very inexpensive underground shows. I can show you how to get cheaper tickets for Broadway shows and Lincoln Center tickets...there are other options for ticket buying than the theater box office or online.
Also available are scenic Brooklyn/Manhattan waterfront bike ride suggestions, the side of NYC most visitors do not get to see. We have many bike lanes in Brooklyn and Manhattan and it is a great way to see sights where the subways do not go.
We have two bicycles available for guests.
This part of Brooklyn is very calm. We have tree lined one way streets which makes for pleasant walks.

No candle burning, incense burning or smoking on the property.
We are a quiet friendly and respectful house.
Please no late night stoop or sidewalk talking/ laughing and smoking, this is disruptive to our neighbors.
Please no late night noise in the unit which includes lively cell phone conversations. As the apartment is accessed through the interior front stairs of a house, we must ask that late night entries up to the unit are quiet.
No general hanging out in front of the house on the sidewalk. Our neighbors are quite close on both sides of our building and we would like to maintain a mindful respect so that everyone feels comfortable.
No overnight extra guests or tenants or roommates unless previously arranged and agreed to.
We loved the neighborhood.There are lots of shops and restaurants and it is wonderfully situated for various subways and the LIRR. Liz and her housemates made us feel very welcome. The house is nicely decorated with a comfy bed and couch for an extra guest. We had our own floor with a big bedroom and living room. It was our home away from home! There is no TV or radio. And for me that's a plus point - we like quiet! We liked it so much we extended our visit.
I highly recommend this place!
Thanks, Liz (and Caitlin)
Great place to kick up your feet and relax while in Brooklyn. It was nice and quiet, like being in the countryside. My wife and I slept well on a memory foam mattress, enjoyed a hot shower and coffee and got in and out of Brooklyn easily.
Clean, private and plenty of space. Highly recommended.
I've been to NYC many times. And since most of the stuff I do is in Manhattan, I tend to stay in Manhattan. This time, we stayed in the Park Slope area of Brooklyn instead, at Liz's place. Suffice to say, I won't be staying in Manhattan again.
What a difference staying here made. We stayed for 8 days, and the trip was wonderful. This is in large part due to the Park Slope neighborhood and, of course, Liz's apartment.
It's perfect for a trip to NYC and (IMO) a bargain. You are quick into town from any of several subway stops serving several lines. So you have easy choices no matter where you are going. And do not discount Brooklyn itself as a place to spend considerable time while here. The area around the bridge, for example, is lovely.
The apartment itself is great. Everything you need, wonderful neighborhood. Quiet -- QUIET!?! -- in NYC. You can sleep with the windows open. The place is charmingly decorated and Liz is a fantastic host.
The only caveat is WiFi, which is DSL (fast downstream, slower upstream) and reception can be spotty in the apartment. But we were always able to connect, even if we had to reposition a bit. Liz is aware and is working on a fix, and it really is not a big deal. Unless your stay requires you moving big files (as ours did -- photographer and a videographer) it is really a non-issue.
What *is* a big deal is Liz's hospitality. She made sure the place was stocked with unexpected items that made us feel right at home. And we did feel that way, from day one.
And Park Slope was an unexpected bonus. Lots of cool places to eat, very residential. Even some celebrity neighbors. We ran into one, but I won't tell you who. It's better when you are surprised by it.
We had a packed work week, so I spent a lot of time searching for an AirBnB in NYC that was both affordable (not easy!) and would give us a great experience. And for that, this apartment was perfect.
Don't hesitate to stay here.
This was a great place to stay! My mom had never been to New York and I wanted her to have the experience but without the hustle and bustle. Liz's place was just right. The location is perfect, the accommodations were perfect too. Everything is easy to get to and amenities are very close. We got a little turned around the first night, but Caitlyn was helpful and got us to the right place. Just a note that the wi-fi is very slow, but hey in a city that never sleeps a little less distraction can be a great thing. I recommend Liz's place to anyone looking to explore Brooklyn and Manhattan.
We stayed at this third floor Park Slope apartment and had a wonderful time. Our hostess Elizabeth could not have been more kind or more thoughtful. She was there to greet us when we arrived at 10:00 pm in the evening and was there to see us off at 6:30 am in the morning. She was attentive to our needs; yet, allowed us our privacy. The accommodations were exactly as shown in the photos. The location could not have been better. The neighborhood was lovely. Subways were close. Major streets of Flatbush and 5th Avenue were both a couple of blocks away in either direction; yet, the actual neighborhood was charming and quiet. This was a spacious little oasis that we enjoyed coming home to at the end of each day.
I & my girl friend had a such a great time. Elizabeth is so friendly and very kind for us, she was always very welcome and respected our privacy. Room was perfect for us, very specious and clean, and there were a lot of equipments, and shampoo, towel, etc.... I definitely recommend this room for not only travelers but also persons who lives NY and wants to stay another place. Thank you so much Elizabeth, really appreciate it.
Whilst it was a short stay, we had a lovely time in Liz's home. We enjoyed exploring the charming neighborhood and all the small independent retailers and eateries. Liz was such a great host, accommodating our schedule for a late check in.
