Please read all details under description section. The calendar is updated daily.
Private Sunny bedroom off the L train! Has a Closet, Desk, chair, large mirror. The room is very accurate to the picture that is provided.
The room is located at the front of the building. This room can be a bit noisy from foot traffic at times, specifically in the warmer months. A set of ear plugs are provided should the noise be a bother; it's occasional but I like to be very clear for guests. There are also 3 other rooms that are rented to guests through airbnb as well.
Under the ''My Other Listing'' section, I have 2 rooms available that are very quiet.
THIS IS A GREAT ROOM FOR THE PRICE!
Guests will have access to the whole apartment. Kitchen, shared bathroom with shower, washer/dryer and backyard/garden.
Interaction with Guests
Three other rooms in the apartment are rented on this site. You may have interactions with other guests in the common areas. I work very long days so you may only see me on occasion. My roommate Dave is home more often, he serves as a host when I am not there. I am always reachable by phone or text. You can view my other rooms under the "Other Listings" section.
The neighborhood is a Puerto Rican immigrant community. This area of Bushwick is at the beginning of getting 'hipster' bars and coffee shops. It is a vibrant neighborhood, specifically in the warmer months, and can be busy at times outside the house. I like to remind guests to keep noise to a minimum being that it is a shared space.
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)

Second time staying at Mark's place. Great location, close to two metro stops on 2 different lines. The apartment is clean, comfy and has all the essential! Mark is easy to reach, everything was great. Might be staying there again in the near future!
I would definitely recommend it!
I didn't interact with Mark outside of Airbnb messages, but his instructions were clear and the apartment was easy to access. The apartment is fastidiously clean, with a large shared kitchen space. I only met one of other guest during my stay, but she was very nice. I could imagine the one potential problem with this place being that you don't know who you'll end up with in terms of the other guests, and the host isn't there to introduce people and mediate between them, as has been the case in most of my other Airbnb experiences. My room was very much as advertised, although the photos make it look a little bigger than it is. The bed was comfortable, the closet is spacious. There is certainly a fair amount of street noise, but it didn't bother me. The water pressure in the shower is amazing.
There are 3 other rooms rented on this site. Its hard to coordinate and introduce everyone coming through. Some guests love to meet new people while others enjoy keeping to themselves. Everyone has such different schedules including myself so this is one area that is hard to improve on. I like all guests to understand it is a community environment and a shared space. I try to communicate this as best as possible and am always looking for ways to improve and welcome any advice. I make myself available by phone anytime if anyone has questions or concerns.
Værelset var fint - lidt mindre end det synes på billedet. Værelset og lejligheden var ordentlig og rent og overalt en hyggelig atmosfære. Vi følte os velkomne og godt tilpas.
Roligt, trygt, solrigt og (billigt) latino-kvarter. Søde mennesker, gode cafeer, sjove butikker og mange pudsige oplevelser.
Mark var hurtig med dine svar i sin kontakt med os, og var meget venlig og imødekommende.
We didn't actually stay at Mark's place as we had a very sudden change of plans.
We did go there and see it before we found out we wouldn't 've staying and must say that it was lovely.
The room is bright, the place large and very clean.
The room that I stayed at was pretty nice. It was next to the street so it could get loud sometimes, but I was still able to sleep well at night. The apartment was always warm after coming inside from the 30 degree weather and the space heater for the room worked well. Mark was a very nice host and he handled my complaint that I had the same day.
Nice cosy space for two! Clean room and facilities. Relatively easy to get to. Neighborhood is alright with many shops nearby. My friend and I enjoyed the place :)
For being my first time using airBNB, I was a little apprehensive going into it but Mark made everything very easy and straightforward. It ended up being the simplest part of the whole trip. I would gladly come back to stay there again. I've stayed with friends in the area before so I knew what to expect about Bushwick but never felt unsafe.

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.
