Interaction with Guests
When I am home after work, always am glad to have a chat. We often cook and/or eat together. Guests also interact with the other roommates in my house - who are often here also for short periods - quite often, people make friends and explore the city together.
Greenpoint has old world charm, and has maintained it's character, even as it's changing with the times. Lots of shops, restaurants, bars.. so is possible to stay in Greenpoint without going anywhere else.. and when you are in the mood to go out of Greenpoint, one can easily get to Queens, other Brooklyn neighborhoods, and Manhattan
G train runs north to the Court Square Station in Queens and south to Williamsburg; from Queensm you can transfer to the E or 7 train to go into Manhattan, and in Williamsburg, you can catch the L train to do the same. There are also buses which run regularly to connect riders to these subway connections
Other Things to Note
Peaceful, serene, environment.
The expectations are that everyone will do their utmost to leave shared spaces clean and tidy, with respect for their fellow housemates.. Also that everyone who comes will bring good energy and spirit to the house.
I had a great stay at Marianas place. The room had everything i needed, and people who live there made me feel like home. The neighborhood is safe quiet and beautiful.
I would recommend Mariana strongly if you come to New York.
Great host! Great room! Great location close to subway! Highly recommended!
Mariana was a great host. I rent the room when she was going on vacation, so I mainly talk with Gabriela, her roomade. She was so kind and helpful and provided me with everything I needed, including a taxi to the airport on my way back home. The room is small, just like the photos on the website. For me it was perfect, the size I needed and helped me to always leave it tidy. The bathroom is in good condition and clean. The kitchen I just used it to store my food in the fridge. The house gets a lot of people, but everyone is very polite. I practically used the home only for shower and sleep. The location is great, in a very interesting area, very close to the East River Ferry with a great ride to Manhattan and near the Grrenpoint Avenue subway station. I traveled alone and felt safe all the time.
Marianas house is really pretty, the room so nice and has its own AC - this was great! The neighborhood is calm and totally safe. I liked to have the opportunity to walk to the Center of Williamsburg, Bedford Ave etc... Its a good place to relax after a long day in the streets of Ny!
