Sunny room in an apartment share for 1-2 guests. Great space for travelers that are passing through. There are 2 other rooms that are rented to other guests on this site. They are located under ''My Other Listings'' section. This room is located in the front of the building facing the street; it gets lots of light with 2 large windows. It is very quiet in the late fall, winter and early spring but gets more active outside in the warmer months specifically weekends, it can be a bit noisy at these times because of street traffic. Earplugs are provided if needed for light sleepers.
Guests will have access to kitchen, shared bathroom with shower, and washer/dryer.
You may have interactions with other guests through this site. Everyone I have met has been very friendly. Most of the guests are out of the house during the day. I work very long days and am not around so much, my other permanent roommate Dave is home more often and acts as host when I'm not available.
The neighborhood is a Puerto Rican immigrant community. This area of Bushwick is at the beginning of getting 'hipster' bars and coffee shops but is a few years off yet from being Williamsburg. It is a vibrant neighborhood, specifically in the warmer months, it can be noisy at times outside the house but is generally quiet inside. There are many artists in this neighborhood.
THE NEIGHBORHOOD IS VERY SAFE. I have been here for 9 years without any issues. My guests have never had any issues as well. There are many people around on the streets at all hours. We are right next to the train for those who are out late in the evening as well.
We are 1 block away from the L train, 15 minutes to the city and a few blocks away from the JMZ train.
USE HOPSTOP FOR DIRECTIONS!
It is also available as an app. This will tell you much more clear detailed instructions on getting here from the airport and getting around the city in general.
Bushwick car service is another service I use.
The house is approximately:
20 minutes away from LaGuardia Airport
25 minutes away from JFK Airport
35-45 minutes away from Newark Airport
(these are average times with minimal traffic)
The rooms are cleaned before arrival and upon exit.
Fresh linens and towels are provided.
There is a lock box (photo of box under photo section), where keys can be picked up or left in the event that I am unavailable.
CHECK OUT TIME IS AT 12:00 NOON
CHECKIN IS 2:00 OR AFTER
I unfortunately do not store luggage or personals after checkout time.
The earliest guests can arrive is 2:00 to allow former guests to depart and rooms to be cleaned.
There is a quick turnover with guests and exchanging keys is difficult with my work. Please arrange travel accordingly.
I unfortunately do not allow guests underage or any one with serious medical issues due to liability.

Mark was very helpful and easily accessible via this site and text. The room was as advertised - a great location, very close to the subway (got to Penn station easily for our 8 am train), and comfortable. A great rate for the value and close to everything you could possibly need. The room was a little chilly, but he provided a space heater which was great.
Great room - highly recommend. Around the corner for the subway stop. Also right next to good deli and coffee shop. Mark is very helpful and knowledgable about NY.
I enjoyed my stay in this comfortable and conveniently located apartment. Mark was friendly and clearly experienced in hosting AirBnb lodgers. The room itself offers a fair amount of space and privacy; the shared kitchen and bathroom were always clean. The apartment is right around the corner from the DeKalb L stop on a quiet street, though since this room is on the first floor there can be a bit of noise from traffic and pedestrians.
Good neighborhood, just next to L and M train, vry comfortable room and really nice host !
Thanks Mark !
Had a good stay here. Very much an Airbnb hotel -- all rooms in the apt were rented out, I think -- but it was clean, comfortable, and convenient, and that's exactly what I was looking for. Thanks!
I had a great experience staying at Mark's place. The room was cheap, and the apartment is very close to the L train. I talked to Mark a few times, and he was very helpful.
A stone's throw walk to L subway, which easily connects to Manhattan or JFK. Neat and clean house. Suits my travel need well.

I am an artist originally from Rhode Island. I have been living in Bushwick for over 10 years. My roommate/friend Dave is a musician and here to help when I am not available. As a host I like make myself available if needed but otherwise try to give all guests their privacy.
