About This Listing
You'll be renting my private room in a 3 bedroom apartment with my 3 roommates while I'm on an extended vacation. The room has a very comfy full size bed and direct access to the back yard. The apartment has a kitchen (which you are welcome to use), living space, and full bathroom. It has lovely furnishings and will feel like your very own place. Your three roommates are relaxed and rarely home, and we are also quite good friends with the next door neighbors as well - so expect an almost family-like atmosphere.
Private bedroom, fully stocked kitchen, full bathroom, direct access to backyard, and everything our wonderful neighborhood has to offer!
Your roommates are willing to give advice as needed, and are both very friendly. They also work a lot, and you will have as much privacy as you like.
Bushwick is a really fun neighborhood! There are as many bars, great restaurants, art spaces, and cafes as anyone could ask for. We also boast the famous "Roberta's Pizza" restaurant just blocks away.
The L train is about 5 blocks away, and will get you to the city in 15 minutes! Bus stops accross the street. A taxi from most of the city will only cost you about $20.
Free parking available on the street.
We have a lovely cat Nena, who is very friendly and playful and mostly stays downstairs. Dander may be an issue for those with bad allergies.
No smoking inside.
Respect our things and try to keep down noise when entering the building at night.
I had a lovely stay at Adam’s place - I was out of the house exploring other parts of Brooklyn and Manhattan most of the time but everything was as described and as pictured. It was obviously winter during my visit so I didn't really use the garden but I imagine it’s a nice place to hang out in the summer months. Adam communicated with me frequently both before and during my stay to make sure everything went smoothly and his housemates were really helpful too. Thanks!
This was my first time using airbnb and Adam and his roommates made it a great experience. I stayed at their place while looking for an apartment in Brooklyn, and they were very helpful at getting me acclimated, orienting me to the area, and being genuinely sweet and sociable. Liked the area so much I ended-up leasing a place in Bushwick.
The description of the room is accurate: private room with shared bath and backyard access. His roommates use the bath at varying hours of the day, so there's never competition for the bathroom. I didn't use the backyard as much, but it's nice to have there. The apartment does have a cat, and she is a sweetheart.
One note: there are chickens in the backyard in a coop next door in the community garden. Also, there are some community meetings with music that happen at reasonable hours of the night. As long as you're not a light sleeper trying to go to bed at 9PM on a Friday, no big deal.
Overall: great transition to Brooklyn, would definitely recommend it.
Adam himself was on vacation, so his roommate Alex arranged the check-in. He and the other roommates are all very friendly people, even though I have not seen them around much. The apartment was nice and offers everything you need. The room itself is not huge, which you should not expect in New York for a price as low as this, and has a great mattress. The Bushwick area seemed vibrant and safe, with a convenient 24h deli right across the street and a well stocked supermarket a few blocks away. The cat Nena is extremely cute and made my stay even more memorable. All in all highly recommended.
