About this listing
Our fully-equipped one-bedroom garden apt. is in our 125 year-old Brownstone home in historic Park Slope, Brooklyn. The area has wonderful restaurants, is near Prospect Park, & the subway to all parts of NYC is just two blocks away. Come visit.
This one-bedroom Garden Apartment features a separate bedroom WITH BRAND-NEW CARPETING, DESK AND DRESSER-DRAWS (1/16), separate full bathroom w/ tub and shower, an eat-in kitchen with adjoining living room in a historic Brooklyn Brownstone home built in 1889, with a garden just behind the apt. that is very nice to lounge in. (FYI, the bed is a "full" which works for most people.)
It's perfect for a single or couple who want to be in one of the most desirable neighborhoods in NYC ( Park Slope, Brooklyn) that is close to public transportation (4 minutes away) and 15 minutes from Manhattan. Alan Siege's family of 5 lives in the house above the apartment and we'll make sure you have a great time while you're visiting. When not being rented to AirBNB guests, my mother-in-law periodically uses the apartment.
Park Slope is a beautiful area with many good restaurants, a movie theater, and the amazing Prospect Park Nearby is the Brooklyn Museum, the Botanical Gardens, and the Brooklyn Academy of Music.
The neighborhood is well served by the New York City Subway. Several lines have stops in Park Slope. The IND Culver Line (F G trains) run along 9th Street, a main shopping street, stopping at Fourth Avenue, Seventh Avenue and 15th Street – Prospect Park/Prospect Park West. The IRT Eastern Parkway Line (2 3 4 5 trains) runs under Flatbush Avenue with an express stop at Atlantic Avenue, and local stops at Bergen Street and Grand Army Plaza. The BMT Fourth Avenue Line (D N R trains) makes stops at Prospect Avenue, Ninth Street, Union Street and Atlantic Avenue – Pacific Street. The BMT Brighton Line (B Q trains) also passes through the neighborhood under Flatbush Avenue making stops at Atlantic Avenue and Seventh Avenue.
Guests will have access to the garden just behind the back of the apartment.
Interaction with guests
I'm always available to help with a question about the area and, of course, if there's any problems with the apartment.
Park Slope is a special part of Brooklyn; it has some truly beautiful brownstone houses and has the amazing Prospect Park in its midst.
As I wrote above, my house is very close to the F train, and other subway lines are nearby. There are also several bus lines that run nearby.
