My apartment is right on the border of the two best neighborhoods in Brooklyn (or possibly all of New York). Fort Greene and Clinton Hill are bustling with gourmet restaurants of all flavors reflecting the multicultural landscape of this area.
Close to public transportation, BAM, Brooklyn Museum, Prospect Park, Fort Greene Park, Pratt, dining, groceries, Dekalb Market, bars and nightlife.
Your private room offers you an incredibly comfortable queen size bed with a down feather bed and comforter and big fluffy pillows, desk, closet, TV with Showtime, HBO, and Cinemax, an Ipod dock station for music, and Wifi. The full bathroom in the photo may or may not be private depending on whether or not the other bedroom is being rented. You can look at my other listing to see the other bedroom. You also have full use of the living room, kitchen, dining room, and large backyard garden. For the summer months you'll have a uniquely large wooden deck with gourmet grill and outdoor seating and lounging. In the winter you can enjoy the wood burning fireplace in the comfortable living area.
I'm very quiet when I am home and have a large space of my own so you may not even know I'm there. I do have cats and a small dog, I keep your bedroom closed off to them but if you don't like pets you may not like this place.
I almost forgot to mention that every Saturday the Brooklyn Flea Market happens a block from the apartment. It's a really cool place to find vintage Americana and yummy street food.
Great place, great host!
I enjoyed so much to stay there. We spend wonderful vacation time in there.thanks Marci.
Marci was a wonderful host! I was in NYC for a few days for business and it was a very pleasant visit. The apartment was huge, spotless, and very conveniently located near the subway. Marci stayed up to let me in around 1:00 am when my train got in late, and was incredibly gracious and welcoming throughout my stay. She is a master of small elegant touches, like water and snacks in the room and mason jars of extra toiletries in the bathroom. The bed was incredibly comfortable and I had everything I needed for a smooth and relaxing experience. I would highly recommend Marci's place and would stay there again in a heartbeat.
Marci was an excellent host, and the place was immaculate! Marci made herself very available to meet me when I first got into town, and was very hospitable during my stay. The place was extremely clean and had everything you need as far as amenities. I recommend her place to anyone who is going to stay in the city, and would definitely stay again if I make it back into town.

I stayed in Marci's apartment for almost a month. I enjoyed her place very much, it was just perfect: great apartment, beautiful neighborhood with many great places to eat, the Brooklyn Flea around the corner, easy and quick access to Manhattan. But above all: Marci is a perfect host. She made me feel at home from the first day, doing everything she could to help out and make my stay pleasant. If I ever come back to New York there is no doubt that I want to stay here again! Thank you Marci!
Marci is such a nice person. Even though she had to travel for a couple of days she made it happen for us to stay in her condo. A lovely friend of her was lodged during this time. We had great fun with her and she shared experiences with us about NYC. Our room was very cozy, clean and spacious. Marci's pets (3 cats and the little dog Oscar) were so cute and very easy to handle. The neighbourhood was lovely and safe, good restaurants just around the Corner and easy access to downtown Manhatten and Brooklyn. We were very glad to meet Marci in personal on our last night in NY and would definitely return to her place at the next time in. thank you very much for everything Marci!
My trip to New York was perfect, and staying at Marci's is definitely one of the reasons why. She is really nice and does her best to make you feel at home. Her apartment and the room are exactly as shown in the pictures. The bed is extremely comfortable. The bathroom is clean and has a lot of toiletries and other products. The kitchen is fully equipped, if you want to cook. It had everything! I’m also really happy I decided to stay in Brooklyn. Her neighborhood is lively and friendly; Marcy will provide you with information about the nicest places, bars and restaurants nearby.
We loved staying in Marci's apt it was so nice, clean, and in a great location. Marci was charming, and so helpful without being botrusive. Thank you for everything Marci. We had a great time!
Look no further, you have found the perfect place to stay for your New York trip. We stayed with Marci September/October 2013. It was our first airbnb booking but even before we arrived we were made to feel at ease with Marci’s prompt response to all our queries.What a beautiful apartment and a kind, generous and patient host. Marci really made a great holiday a perfect one. With her advice we felt more like locals than tourists and it only took half a day to master the short Subway trips into Manhattan. The picturesque neighbourhood is packed with great places to eat. The bed was insanely comfortable and the apartment ultra cool, quiet and well-equipped. We were absolutely smitten with Marci, her pets (big-eyed Oscar is a perfect gentleman despite his sock fetish) and friends and will book this apartment again because it feels like home. 10/10. We found a new friend in Marci and will always treasure those days sharing some life together.
Ben and Massi.
