Welcome to Place. A beautiful and comfortable place for friends, travelers, artists, and new arrivals to NYC.
I enjoy hosting people who appreciate the space. Place is used as an art studio during the day.
The space is in a classic NY brick building in the cool neighborhood of Bed-Stuy in Brooklyn. The space is well cared for with specific art and design objects. During the day, the place functions as an art studio.
There are three bedrooms in the apartment, one is a shared room, one is a single room, and one is for the host.

In addition to your room, a nice shared living space, fully stocked kitchen, two clean bathrooms, and fast internet.
Interaction with Guests
It is different for each guest. They can interact as much or as little as they want. It depends on the guest and what I have planned with work and my schedule.
I love the authenticity of the neighborhood. It is very walkable and the urban design and layout is quite nice. There are beautiful brownstone buildings, cafes, restaurants, and a gallery.
Place is located one block away from the A & C Subway line. It is a 5 minute walk to the subway, the line is very convenient to reach many destinations of NY.
Guests arriving from JFK can easily reach Place via the A subway line, it works great.
Other Things to Note
Please write with some information about yourself before making a reservation. The place is very flexible, creative, social, and also a home.
There is book entitled, "Be Nice, Share Everything, Have Fun." This is not so much a rule, it is more of an idea in the house.
Justin was extremely accommodating to our schedule, especially for an early morning Saturday arrival (oops). The place is spacious and really well kept. We especially enjoyed the hand soap he has out in the bathrooms! Had a great night's sleep in the incredibly comfortable bed! It was fun to talk and learn a little bit about what Justin does as well! Thanks for the stay, i definitely recommend this place!
Justin and his place are great! Justin did all what he could to make my stay at his place as comfortable as possible. The place is clean, new and I liked it very much!
it was so nice meeting justin.
he never lose smile on his face.
i spent 6 nights at justin's place and had such a great time.
he keeps the place so clean and tidy all the time.
the bed was so clean and comfortable too. i had gooood sleep every night.
everyday i came home late he asked me how my day was and tried to talk to me, which is great for self-traveler.
i wish i had had more time to talk more with him.
train station is only a block away and i think A,C train is the best to travel around manhattan.
if i go to new york again, i would definetly contact justin again.
Staying at Justin's was a great time. There were others staying there as well which made the experience better. We even had drinks with justin a couple times. His place is very simple which I liked. He made breakfast for us one day which was awesome. I would definitely stay again at Justin's place.
The place looks exactly as shown in the pictures, its clean and minimalist. Justin is really nice and flexible, had a really great time chatting at night with him and other guests on the stoop, felt quite at home and really like the up and coming neighbourhood.
I had a great stay here. The place is accurately describe. The host was kind and courteous. The bed was clean and comfortable. I would definitely stay here again.
Host made me feel very welcome with some water and a bread & avocado snack as I walked in! He also upgraded my room a bit which I appreciated. Place was clean and nice, and he had fresh towels to offer. Neighborhood and directions were as described, and on the A train (express) near his place (5 min walk) it took just 25-30 minutes to get to Herald Square. There were other guests in the place (in other rooms) while I was there, and everyone was friendly and very relaxed. Easy to spend time in the room, easy to sleep on time, etc. Thanks for a good stay!

Hi. I am an artist and planner in New York. I work for a contemporary art foundation in Soho and make my own art and planning projects. I work with sculpture, paint, and space.
New York's variety and cultural spectrum is able to meet each person's unique interests. I call my project Place, with the aim to provide a comfortable space to stay, have fun, meet and share with others : )
