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.

  • Really nice place, great location (especially when you visit an event at the Barclays Center) and super-friendly and accommodating host. Foodies should not miss the small but fantastic Italian "Convivium Osteria" around the corner.

    April 2014
  • Absolutely loved this apartment. The location couldn't have been better. Very close to a ton of train lines. The apartment was clean and spacious with a beautiful backyard Brooklyn view. Liz was a wonderful host and happy to answer any questions. I would stay with Liz again at any chance.

    November 2013
  • My husband and I stayed in Elizabeth's apartment for two weeks. The apartment itself was very well appointed, spacious and comfortable, very adequate for our needs. The neighborhood is lovely: Elizabeth's street is very quiet, (and the bedroom on the garden side of the building is ultra-quiet!); however, just one block away there are wonderful cafés and restaurants, as well as trendy shops. Public transportation facilities are outstanding and just a few blocks away.

    Elizabeth is very friendly, yet discreet, and went out of her way to leave information about New York, including her favorite, little-known but interesting, places to visit. There were all sorts of thoughtful touches, including tea, coffee, and even wine and snacks to comfort the traveling soul!

    All in all a wonderful experience which I highly recommend!

    November 2013
  • A lovely apartment in the heart of Brooklyn's northern Park Slope Neighborhood; location could not be beat and Liz is really helpful in all ways. The top apartment is decorated wonderfully - elegant and yet comfortable. She presented wine and pretzels upon arrival, what could be better; kitchen is outfitted well, and Liz is quick to fill in if anything's needed.

    October 2013
  • Elizabeth was so helpful especially when we had to add an extra night last minute. Everything was sorted super quickly and with no fuss. Would definitely recommend her apartment and will come back again if ever in NY.

    October 2013
  • Elizabeth was a great host - she had lots of recommendations for places to go in the neighborhood and was very responsive throughout our stay.

    The apartment itself is quite spacious, beautifully decorated, and in a great location. The "tree top" title is true - the bedroom windows look out to all green. It's very peaceful.

    Took off 1 star for spotty wifi, but otherwise a pleasant stay.
