The apt features two bedrooms, two bathrooms (one with washer and dryer, the other with jacuzzi tub) and a huge living room / dining room space with an open kitchen.

The big glass window in the living room overlooks a garden and on nice days you can enjoy your morning coffee on the deck. The apt sleeps 4-6 ppl. 4 in beds and 2 on air mattress.

Prospect Heights is a great neighborhood with an abundance of cozy eateries, bars, shops, boutiques, flea markets, and farmers markets. A 5-10 minute walk from Brooklyn Academy of Music you have easy access to one of New York's best theater and music scenes. You can get your exercise in by jogging up to Prospect Park and running the loop.
My apartment is a short walk to several neighborhoods - Fort Greene, Park Slope, Cobble Hill, Brooklyn Heights, Clinton Hill etc. A two minute walk from the Atlantic Terminal you are right by every possible train that will take you anywhere in Manhattan, Brooklyn or Queens. If you want to make a quick visit to Long Island, the Long Island Railroad is there too. It could not be more convenient! And of course if you are a basketball fan, the new Barclay's Arena is down the street!
My apartment has a personal touch, it is clean, Scandinavian feel, no clutter. Your stay will be very relaxing!
(Please note that I have no television...)
Absolutely no smoking. No pets.
While I am pretty flexible I do ask that you keep the kitchen and bathrooms as clean as possible. The Scandinavian that I am, you will need to remove your shoes in the hallway.
Be courteous to my neighbors. They are all great peeps!
(This would include keeping noise levels down at wee hours and not clomping around in high-heels… hence no shoe policy…)
I am Helena. I hail from Scandinavia, where I grew up in the country side, surrounded by fields and a lot of forest! I thus have an appreciation for peace and quiet, beautiful nature and cleanliness. This apartment may not have the nature, as it is NYC, but it is quiet, peaceful, clean and beautiful.
I work in the area of women's rights and peace building. I travel quite a lot for work and appreciate the richness of knowing other cultures and meeting people of diverse backgrounds and life experiences. I am responsive and easy to communicate with!
