About this listing
Clean, quiet, comfortable 1BR right on Prospect Park in the Windsor Terrace neighborhood of Brooklyn. Perfect refuge after a day in the city - and only a block and a half to the F train to Manhattan [or to Coney Island in the other direction!] and the G train to Williamsburg.
The apt is situated on the 2nd floor on the back side of the building, so you don't get any of the noise from all the traffic on the street - and instead look out onto leafy trees (though not in winter), birds, squirrels on the fire escape and even the occasional raccoon! (no joke!) Queen sized bed sleeps 2 comfortably and a third could sleep on the sofa for an additional fee. There's wireless in the apt and Netflix on a (new-to-me, so fun!) flatscreen TV... You can use my GEEtar if you're feeling musical. Short walk to Park Slope, Ditmas Park, South Slope, Kensington and Gowanus; short trip to Prospect Heights, DUMBO, RedHook, Carroll Gardens, Cobble Hill, Boerum Hill, and Greenpoint, Williamsburg and Coney Island.
What else. The apt is cool in the summer and warm in the winter, and it is basically my own personal paradise. I think you will love it. There are windows in every room, a gas stove for cooking...
OH - THIS IS KEY! Two KITTIES live here with me, so you gotta love gatos! And not mind opening a can of cat food for them once a day and filling water glasses every day or two? The nightly fee is about $25 less than other 1 bedroom apartments in the building on account of you-taking-care-of-my-felines -- so... everyone's a winner!
There are all kinds of delis and a few bars/restaurants on our little main drag up there on Prospect Park West a block and a half away. Oh yeah, and killer thai food that also delivers if you're gonna have my all-time favorite kind of night: thai takeout + movie.
Oh also, if you've got a rental car, there is street parking which I have never had to spend more than 5 minutes finding, in the 8 years I've lived here.
What else... I'm in the process of trying to repaint the place, cuz i'm noticing little cracks here and there, so I'll update the photos if/when that happens.
The whole apt is yours!
check-in/out is somewhat flexible, cuz i don't anticipate back-to-back visitors, but it's a guideline... what else... just gotta like cats, i guess? Oh, and if you could smoke outside (there's park benches! it's nice out there!), that's ideal. Feel free to eat and drink what you find, but if you could try to replace the big things, that would be great. Locking the windows and lowering the shades on your way out is pretty important...
Also, sound travels pretty strongly in this building - so if you don't mind removing your shoes at the door (and keeping nighttime noise to a minimum), that will help keep the downstairs neighbors happy. Thanks for that.
