Lots of sunlight, wood flrs, and beautiful exposed brick wall. This comfortably fits 2 ppl. This is a very private room, away from the other bedrooms facing the street.
- 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 upstairs bedroom has direct light and exposed brick. It's the perfect size for a single person or a couple.
- And depending upon request we can offer the entire apartment, all 4 rooms at the same time depending on the intended length of your stay. You could easily house 4 couples in this configuration and maybe a 9th and 10th person on 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.
There are two other rooms with potential availability in our home. So if you're traveling in a group make sure to look at all of our listings.
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.
There is a backyard with a fire pit/BBQ with access through Jorel or Erica's rooms. We'll be happy to let you out there when we're home, or you can join us when we BBQ!
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!
all as advertised, cool bedroom, nice bathroom, clean, nice neighbourhood w/ tons of cafes, eateries, pubs...
Erica was a great host. This was my first AirBnb experience & it was a good impression. She was very helpful & printed out restaurants & cafes that were close, w/ a map. She took time to give a tour, spoke to me for awhile, & even cooked & shared a meal with me. Her cat also joined. :) She gave you your space, but made sure you knew that she was there to help out. I loved my stay. I would definitely stay here again if needed, & would also recommend.
My experience at Erica and Jorel's place was perfect! We didn't get in until quite late, and Erica was happy to welcome us even though we woke her up! She was always friendly and helpful and made me feel that she genuinely appreciated the stay. The bed was comfy and the bathroom was great....a real tub, too! Highly recommend....
I loved my stay. Erica was a very good host - easy to reach, good advice about the city, and very friendly. I arrived earlier than expected, but I was able to wait until Erica got home at an excellent Venezuelan cafe. Subway is on the block and there are excellent coffee shops near by. Erica keeps a list with a map. My bed and room were comfortable and I had my own heater. The shower was shared, but I never had to wait. I used the wifi to watch Netflix on my tablet and had no problems. The neighborhood looks rough with huge amounts of graffiti, but I felt safe. I usually stay in hotels, but will return here when I am in New York.
I stayed with Erica and Jorel and they were very welcoming! I even arrived early in the morning and Erica and Jorel let me check in early which was great!!!!!!! I know for a fact that I will stay their again whenever I need to be in Brooklyn or Manhattan! The commute into Manhattan was easy also.
Had a great stay in the apartment. The room was clean and comfortable, as was the bed. Great neighborhood! Near fun and interesting cafes and restaurants. Also near the art galleries. The trip to Manhattan was quick and easy. Erica was very helpful and kind.
We had a great experience staying with Erica. She was very friendly and eager to make you feel comfortable in her home and in Brooklyn. She provided many tips on the area and was very approachable for questions. We never met Jorel but did happen upon a friendly cat once or twice!
The room itself was small - perfect if you are looking for a comfortable place to sleep if you know you will be spending most of your time exploring the area. Please note that the bathroom was shared between tenants so there was some waiting for showers, not a huge deal in the realm of things but may be a point of note for some! Erica also made the kitchen available to us so we were able to store some food and drinks in the fridge.
The Bushwick neighbourhood itself is pretty neat. A lot of great restaurants and street art to discover. The place was also extremely close to the L-train which made making your way to Manhattan easy as well.
Thank you Erica!
