About this listing
This is a bright and spacious room on the top floor of a beautiful brownstone on a tree-lined residential block in Park Slope. It is in the heart of Brooklyn's cultural center and yet only a short subway ride to Manhattan. The best of both worlds.
This is a quiet room with private bath that overlooks a huge backyard. Windows on two sides make it especially light and airy. The room is large (13'x16') and has a full bed, ample work space, a comfortable upholstered chair and lots of closet space. It has a mini-fridge, teapot,coffeemaker and microwave. The room is listed for double occupancy, but it is adjacent to another, smaller room that can accommodate another guest for an additional $35/night. (See Room #2.) Ideal for a small family or close friends. (Altogether, there are four bedrooms on this unoccupied floor. Use of the other rooms may be negotiated for a larger group or family.) We book only one guest or group at a time, so you will have the entire floor and private bath to yourselves.
The top floor is the guest floor. It is very private and roomy. Once you're upstairs, no one else passes through. And to get there, you don't have to pass through anyone else's living space. (The top floor is two flights up, not too bad, but it may not be ideal for people with knee problems.)
Interaction with Guests
I live in the house (on the 2nd and 3rd floor)
and will be available with help or suggestions if needed.
Park Slope is a low-key, easy-walking, bike-friendly neighborhood, one of New York's famous "most livable." It's a short 5-10 minute walk to some of Brooklyn's greatest attractions, among them: Prospect Park, The Brooklyn Museum, The Botanic Gardens, The Barclay Center and The Brooklyn Academy of Music. It's got great shopping, bars, restaurants and music and comedy venues. And trees!
The Q, B, N, R, 2/3 and 4/5 trains are all within a 5 minute walk. There's street parking if you have a car and bike rentals within a few blocks.
Sorry, there's no smoking in or on the property. And since we've got some pets of our own, we can't take on any more.
If you're planning on having a guest, please let me know.
I have lived in Brooklyn, NY for 30 years and have three grown children. I am a retired public gardener and an avid urban farmer. (We have a beehive, vegetable beds, fruit trees and three chickens!) I teach adult literacy at the Brooklyn Central Library. I love to travel -- most recently to SE Asia and Oaxaca, Mexico -- but am always happy to come home to New York's best borough -- Brooklyn.
