Hello everyone. We are Erica and Jorel. We're living in a big brand new, clean, refurbished 4bd room Duplex with AC and lots of amenities just past the East Williamsburg border in Bushwick, on the same block as Jefferson Stop L Train!
- We are located on the same block as the Jefferson stop on the L Train. This train takes us directly to Untion Square in exactly 14min. In our area there is nothing as new, clean, close to the train, and close to the most amazing shops and bars in our neighborhood.
-This downstairs room has its own "private entrance" if you choose to use it and is the largest room in the house. This could easily accommodate three, even four people if you wanted to add the use of our air mattress.
-All of the rooms are totally private with locking doors.
-We have 1.5 bathrooms. Full bathroom upstairs, half is downstairs.
- Exposed Brick and Hardwood floors.
- Very comfortable beds. Fresh Linens and Towels.
- Coffee and snacks every morning.
Laundry in building!!!
Backyard with Apple trees, and a Fire Pit, with BBQ possibility.
Awesome Bars! It's very easy to just stay in this neighborhood.
The greatest Taqueria (maybe on Earth?). Also nothing there costs more than $6!
Totally amazing restaurants, from French, to New american, to brick oven Italian style pizza.
A local Park for indigenous people watching.
AGAIN, 45 second walk to "Jefferson" stop on the L train.
The kitchen and bathroom upstairs is a shared area.
Interaction with Guests
Erica and Jorel will be here during your stay. We will totally be available for you, to help you understand the city. You can text, call, or email us anytime. And depending on what you're looking to experience, Erica or Jorel will have recommendations. We are seasoned Pro's here in NYC. And we like to keep our finger on the pulse of what's going on in our city.
Erica also has a car, so depending on her availability she'll take you to and from airports for a fraction of what a cab would cost. Just ask her about it ahead of time.
We highly recommend shooting us an email to tell us when you are hoping to stay with us, and we can give you an immediate idea of all the possibilities. Plus the third room could always be available if Jorel is going away so write to us anytime to say hello, and we'll answer any questions.
A flourishing artist community has existed in Bushwick for decades and has now become one of the most lively art communities in New York City. Dozens of art studios and galleries are scattered throughout the neighborhood along with countless music venues, bars and restaurants. There are several open studios programs that help the public visit artist studios and galleries and a number of websites dedicated to promoting neighborhood art and events.
Some restaurants, music venues, and bars we love:
Tortilleria Mexicana Los Hermanos
Secret Project Robot
Low Brow Artique
The Living Gallery
House of Yes
English Kills Art Gallery
The Cobra Club
Goodbye Blue Monday
Momo Shushi Shack
El Mio Cid
Again...Yes, the L train is conveniently located ON OUR BLOCK.
The train makes commuting very easy into other neighborhoods:
- 8-10 minutes from Williamsburg
- 13 minutes to the East Village
- 15 minutes to Union Square (Holiday Market and shopping)
- 35 minutes to Rockefeller Center (ice skating, christmas tree)
- 40 minutes away from Central Park
- Subway: Take the ACE line and transfer to the L train.
- Mass transit is tricky, we suggest a fairly inexpensive yellowcab ride (about $30 with tip, depending on traffic) to our place.
Other Things to Note
We do have 2 cats that mostly stay in Erica's Room. And from time to time Jorel has a beautiful, loving dog that also mostly stays in his room. But the dog is only in the apartment about 10 days out of each month.
The Rental rooms never have any pets in them, so you most likely won't even know they are here.
There is free street parking on our block, yoga, Indian Food, 3 great bars and a 24 hour gormet food store around the corner!
Please be respectful of other guests by being quiet at night. If there are no other guests, you can bend that rule!
When there are other guests in the house, please limit shower time to 15 minutes. If there are no other guests, go crazy!
Had a great time! The location was super convenient and the hosts were great. Thanks!
Very responsive. Everything was as described and Erica was very attentive. A very good first-time Airbnb experience!
Erica was a wonderful hostess. She made arrangements for me to come settle in even though our schedules didn't match. She also shared her amazing lentil soup. Great conversation and a great home. I hope to be back!
Really nice room, we were 3, Erica had already set a futon in the room before our "early" arrival for the first night. She was really helpful for the restaurant and the neighborhood. Definitely the best experience in NYC so far ! The room is 2 minutes away from the subway station, on the L train. Couldn't be simpler. I will definitely come back if possible !
I had a wonderful time! They were kind and very accommodating. I'd definitely stay with them again in the future.
My friends and I had a good stay here. Erica was very welcoming and accommodating. However, I do have to mention that the place did not live up to the expectations set from all the pictures and description. The condo in general was a bit messy. While our room was organized, it needed to be vacuumed. The description mentioned that the room had a private entrance but we were never told about it. (There was another door in the room but we weren't sure where it led so we didn't try to open it). Additionally, we had booked the place for 3 people, but apparently there was a confusion so I had to sleep on the floor the first night. Erica set up a futon bed for the second night. Besides that, the place is conveniently located next to the subway in a quiet neighborhood with lots of street parking.
Wir hatten einen schönen Aufenthalt bei Erica und können ihre Unterkuft nur weiterempfehlen. Erica hat uns bei unserer Ankunft eine Liste mit Restaurants, Bars und Cafés in Bushwick gegeben, von der wir auch mehrere Sachen ausprobiert haben. Der Mexikaner und die Bagels an der Ecke der Subway-Station sind zu empfehlen ;-) Die Lage der Wohnung ist recht zentral. Zur Jefferson Subway-Staion läuft man keine 5 Minuten. Die meisten Sehenswürdigkeiten erreicht man mit der LTrain in ca. 25 Minuten. Die Wohnung selbst ist sehr modern eingerichtet. Unser Zimmer war groß und befand sich mit Ericas Zimmer und einem Bad im Erdgeschoss. Die Wohnung war zwar sauber, ist aber nicht unbedingt etwas für Sauberkeitsfanatiker ;-) Erica haben wir nicht oft gesehen, da wir den ganzen Tag unterwegs waren. Dennoch wirkte sie sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit und war abends öfters für einen Smalltalk zu haben! :-)
