The Space

Your bedroom is 12X12 or 144 sq. feet. It has 2 windows with shutters that look over my backyard. You have a full and twin bed. You get plenty of daylight and can see the sunset from your room. You have plenty of drawer space. You have a closet to hang things up and stow your bags in.I refinished the hardwood floors 2 years ago.

Guest Access

You'll be able to use the living room, my kitchen and grill and backyard during the warmer weather.

Interaction with Guests

I'm home pretty often so we should bump into each other a lot. I'll try and answer all your questions and help you any way I can.

The Neighborhood

My neighborhood is pretty quiet. I'm a 10 minute walk from beautiful Sunset park. From there you can see the whole harbor, statue of Liberty, Manhattan and New Jersey. There's a Bowling Alley at the top of my block where you can have fun bowling and drinking an adult beverage or two. We have pizza, dinners, Chinese and Spanish restaurants all within a few blocks. If you get hungry late at night, there's always some place open to eat.

Getting Around

I live 1 block from the express trains. The N,D and local R train will get you around. It's 2 stops to Manhattan. Up my block on 5th Ave is the B 63 bus that goes from the Verrazano Bridge at the Narrows to Downtown Brooklyn and the Brooklyn Bridge.

Other Things to Note

This is the house I grew up in. I've lived here since 1960. She was built in 1903. I've seen how my home and neighborhood have changed over that time. I'm inviting you to share some time in my home. I'm easygoing and you'll laugh with me.
