About This Listing
New construction (2013), loft-style space with queen sized Tempurpedic bed. Private entrance, bathroom, & patio, with shared attached kitchen. 2 blocks from subway (C), close to Barclays Center, Prospect Park, & many shops, bars and restaurants within walking distance!
Our building is a "boutique townhouse" in Prospect Heights. It is a loft-style space, meaning the bedroom, living/dining room and kitchen are all connected. We are in the middle of everything, but on a quiet residential street. You can walk to Prospect Park, Barclays Center, or any of the many local destinations, then return to our quiet home to relax.
Guests have their own space with private entrance, living area, sleeping area, bathroom, patio, temperature control and a kitchen on the floor.
Interaction with Guests
After initial introductions, we will retire to the other level and allow you as much privacy as you like! We need to access the floor once daily to care for fish, but will give as much privacy as needed.
Our neighborhood is the best mix of access to local hot spots, while being on a quiet residential street. There is usually parking to be found on the block (rare in Brooklyn!) and terrific options for dining and nightlife all around. We love it here!
The C train is two blocks away, and just about every other train in Brooklyn is available at Barclays Center/Atlantic Terminal, a ten minute walk: B, Q, 2, 3, 4, 5, D, N, R, and Long Island Railroad. Plenty of Buses too!
Other Things to Note
The apartment is on the ground floor at the front of the building, so you may hear people coming and going. We don't notice it, but if you are a light sleeper we have a white-noise machine and earplugs if needed... There's no TV, but we have business-class internet, blazing fast! There's a dishwasher, Insinkerator, and full kitchen.
We take off shoes in the foyer, and would like you to do so as well! Respect our neighbors, keep the noise down at night. Absolutely no smoking or pets in the apartment, there is a private patio in front for smokers.
Russ was an excellent host. The place is spacious and has excellent decor. We were very comfortable here. I would highly recommend this place.Please thank your wife.
My stay with Russ and Yunee was delightful and I would certainly return for another visit. The accommodations were lovely, quiet and peaceful, with all the comforts of home. My hosts were very friendly, hospitable and accommodating, recommending good nearby restaurants, other sites to see, and where to easily find a cab to JFK. The location was perfect for exploring Brooklyn and convenient to the gardens, museum, park, and subway into Manhattan.
The host made us feel very welcome. He provide a list of neighborhood restaurants the was very helpfull. The unit was very clean and well maintained. We had no issues with any of the amenities.
Russ's apartment was stunning – super comfortable and felt like home! (if only...!) Russ was an excellent host, really accommodating and helpful. He gave us suggestions of good bars and restaurants in the area and was very relaxed and friendly. The space you stay in is huge and has everything you could possibly want and it's all finished and decorated beautifully. My only regret is that we only had a week to spend here – it went so quickly! We were very sad to go. We will definitely be back next time we are in NYC, the location is ideal and the apartment is gorgeous. Thanks Russ!
I definitely recommend staying at Russ's loft: it feels like being home. The place is as big and well furnished as described in the website. The hosts are friendly and not intrusive. The neighborhood is nice and well connected to Manhattan. Very good pick!
Choisir d'aller chez Russ à Brooklyn s'est révélé une très bonne option pour notre séjour à New-York en avril. L'appartement est spacieux, confortable, aménagé avec goût. La salle de bain est très pratique, la cuisine super équipée.
Russ est accueillant, disponible, il vous met tout de suite à l'aise et se préoccupe de votre bien-être.
Le métro pour rejoindre Manhattan est tout proche, plusieurs lignes sont accessibles à pied.

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour de 12 jours.
Merci Russ et Younee, see you soon
About the Host, Russ
I'm a technologist, living and working in Brooklyn since 2001. I've lived all over this amazing borough, and this is my favorite neighborhood ever! It's peaceful and quiet on the cross streets, while the avenues are filled with wonderful restaurants, bars, and shopping. We love living here, and if you're in town for a show at the Barclay Center or an event in the city, we know you'll love it too!
