The space

You will share a cozy but BIG space with me but the bedrooms are on separate sides of the apartment for additional privacy. The large kitchen is equipped with Calphalon pots and pans, a large oven and everything you need to make your own meals. The living/dining room area is large and comes equipped with a large flat screen TV and Bose speakers with i-pod/ i-phone connection.

Guest access

Guests have access to the whole apartment (except my room) - bathroom, kitchen and living room.

Interaction with guests

I will stay out of your way and leave you to your adventures. I am a very busy professional, but I am happy to help guests navigate the city and to make their stay as comfortable as possible. I really love Brooklyn and am happy to orient my guests to Brooklyn and New York City.

The neighborhood

Whether you want to get to know a less touristy part of New York City in an area of Brooklyn with a neighborhood feel or are looking for a launching pad to explore the popular sites in Manhattan, this apartment is perfectly situated for either with super easy subway access and walking distance to some of Brooklyn's biggest attractions like the Brooklyn Museum, Prospect Park (now with a new ice skating rink) and Brooklyn Botanical Garden.

Crown Heights is an incredibly diverse, vibrant neighborhood with everything from Starbucks to cheap authentic Jamaican food. There are many new trendy shops, cafes, and bars. Located on a tree-lined pedestrian mall with a bike lane and benches, walk easily to Brooklyn's main attractions in and around Grand Army Plaza.

Make sure to get a cupcake from Lily and Fig bakery and a roti from a Trinidadian restaurant while in the neighborhood. My block and building have plenty of old time Brooklyn folks who were born and raised in the neighborhood, so there is a real community feel.

Getting around

You can see the subway stop across the street from the living room and bedroom windows. Getting around couldn't be easier than walking out the door to access express trains 2/3/4/5 serving the east and west sides of Manhattan, as well as the shuttle servicing other areas of Brooklyn. Barclay's Center is one stop away and less than 5 minutes. Be in downtown Manhattan in 15 minutes. JFK International Airport is about 25 minutes by taxi.

Other things to note

I use a cafe 2 blocks from my apartment to exchange the keys. It is open 7AM - 9PM. If you will be arriving outside of this timeframe, please ask me before booking so I can let you know if I will be available or not.

House Rules
Check-in is after 3PM

I ask all my guests to verify their passport through Airbnb before making a reservation. I give guests all the information about the apartment before they arrive. It's mostly about recycling and what goes where.
