About This Listing
3 Bedroom in the heart of Brooklyn!
Here we have a bright and sunny, newly renovated apartment in the heart of Brooklyn; 2 Blocks from Prospect Park and the Brooklyn Botanical Garden! The apartment is located along the B and Q metro lines, at Prospect Park Train Station, only 4 stops to Manhattan! The neighborhood is filled with life, and plenty of great places to eat and explore. Considered a "cultural enclave" Lefferts Gardens is the perfect mix between Brooklyn life, and City life. Just 2 train stops from the coveted Barclays Center, and nearly all train connections to all over New York at Atlantic Avenue.
"I enjoy the sense of minimalism and space in this apartment, it gives me the ability to think freely without all the clutter of my life back home." - Thoughts of a Guest
With that in mind, imagine waking up to clarity and sunlight, without the distractions of life keeping you from exploring and enjoying your visit to the most famous city in the world. I've kept the room descriptions to a minimum (naturally), because the pictures do a better job of showing you what the rooms actually look like.
ATTENTION: I would just like to note that this is my personal apartment, and not a hotel. That being said, if you are interested in having a gathering or throwing a party, then this is not the apartment for you! You should treat this apartment the same way you would treat your Grandma's house. You should leave the apartment as your found it, and if you move something, please put it back.
The first of three bedrooms sports a full sized bed, mini palm tree, and a modern green vibe. Great for everyone from couples to the lone adventurer. This room promotes clear thinking and relaxation. There is little noise at night, as the window overlooks a calm courtyard rather than the busy street. I recommend this room for the light sleepers out there.
Room number two boasts perfect symmetry for your aesthetic pleasure, Here you'll find side by side twin beds, and matching side tables, equipped with identical lamps for ultimate dual climate control. A clothing rack and large "malm" dresser are also available for your pleasure. In addition to being the biggest room, room number two also has the most space for the heavy packers! This room is great for siblings, couples, and friends.
Last, but certainly not least, is room number three. A folding sewing table, large open floor space and lots of storage make room number three both fashionable and functional. Although there is only one bed, there is plenty of room for expansion; with more than enough square footage to bring your own air mattress or sleeping bag! Room number three is great for everyone!
There are free Towels, Sheets, and ofcourse FREE WiFi throughout the apartment; I will provide you will all of the appropriate information upon your arrival. In addition, I have outfitted all of the beds with mattress covers, all cabinets and outlets with child safety locks, and all linens are changed/washed separately after every group of guests!
There is parking readily available in front of the building and on both sides of the street. It is free, and there are almost always spots available. You just have to move your car during the specified street cleaning days (2 days a week for 2 hours).
Feel free you take advantage of all the common space in the apartment.
The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you'll need to whip up a quick bite to eat or dinner for everyone. There is a gas cooking range, a luxury for some; a full set of pots and pans, a Bose Soundlink, and even a juicer! In the corner you'll find a restaurant style booth-table equipped with four chairs, which coincidentally I have not put up pictures of yet.
In the living room you'll find a nice assortment of comfortable furniture, including a mini-conference table and luxury sofa set.
You will have 5-minute-or-less access to the Metro stations, major grocery stores, laundromat, bodegas, and gas stations.
I urge you to contact me with any questions or concerns about anything I may have left out! I am open to special offers, so please do not hesitate to ask.
I look forward to hearing from you!
Guests will have full, private access to the entire apartment.
Interaction with Guests
I will meet and greet you to let you in, after that, it's up to you! I am on call 24/7!

Other Things to Note
Daytime guests are welcome upon prior notice.
Had a good experience staying at Russells. The apartment is close to 2 subway stations and a grocery store as well as fast food restaurants. Russell was great about working with us whenever we needed. The apartment was clean and had everything we needed. There is a club directly across the street which did get noisy at times but was not a big issue . Would definitely stay there again!
The apt. was clean and spacious , with enough towels and linen. It was well equipped, had a fine atmosphere and a good shower. Located only 5 minutes away from a metro station, within 25 min you are in Manhattan.
There is a large supermarket next door, a 24/7 wholesome market close.
Easy policy of getting and leaving the key.
Russell is a very friendly host.
The apt. is absolutely fine for its rate.
Cons: (just to mention, fyi, we felt well)
The neighbourhood needed getting used to. as a woman I wouldn’t have gone home alone at night.
The room to the street is different to the fotos, now there is a bunk bed instead of two twin beds and no dresser.
This room is vis-à-vis a night club, and thus it is really loud at week-ends. I was prepared due to the reviews and used ear-plugs so I had no problem sleeping.
No information about restaurants nearby, map, taxi etc.
I couldn’t reach Russell via Mail, SMS or Phone for two days, but we met at checking-out and here he was extremly helpful finding an affordable taxi to JFK – thank you, Russell!
Le logement est conforme aux photos
Le quartier est très bien desservi
Il est bien situé pour aller dans Manhattan en 1/2 heure
Russell made us very welcome and had left tea coffee milk and other food in the apartment as well as soft drinks and beer in the fridge. He was also very helpful carrying our cases up to the apartment. The apartment was as described and also convenient for the Supermarket next door and not too far from the subway which took us in to Manhattan. We enjoyed our stay in Russell's apartment and would come back again.
Logement spacieux, hôte très sympatique. Petit dégât des eaux mais ca arrive :)
Logement très bien situé, proche metro, proche de prospect park, d'un supermarché et de différents fast food si besoin.
Appartement fonctionnel et spacieux permettant d'accéder rapidement à Manatthan. Supermarché et métro à proximité : très pratique. Nous n'avons pas rencontré Russel mais il est très réactif par internet. Séjour agréable.

About the Host, Russell
My name is Russell, I'm a young adult living in New York. I grew up along the Atlantic coast of the United States. My Mother is from Florida, and My Dad from Brooklyn. I use Airbnb because I like being able to contribute to a movement of easier, less stressful, and more exciting travel experiences for everyone. Most of my listings are very minimal. I think that having a clear head starts with having a clear space to live in.
