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.
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. On peut aussi découvrir facilement les différents quartiers de Brooklyn, Dumbo, Williamsburg par le métro ou rejoindre Propect Park ou le musée de Brooklyn à pied. Le quartier est sympa, animé, bien achalandé. Russ vous indique les adresse sympas, un plan du quartier et de Brooklyn sont mis à votre disposition.
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour de 12 jours.
Merci Russ et Younee, see you soon
Russ and Yunee were very hospitable and the space was very comfortable, easy to use. We are appreciative of the chance to stay there and I tend to return since we visit Brooklyn regularly.
Il soggiorno da Russ è stata una esperienza molto positiva: ottima accoglienza e disponibilità, spazio ampio e comodo con tutti comfort (wi-fi, indipendenza totale, riscaldamento manuale, PC a disposizione, cibo che Russ ha gentilmente preparato e cucina) .
Io ed il mio ragazzo siamo stati proprio bene!!!
Inoltre il quartiere è molto tranquillo e ben fornito sia di locali per tutti i gusti e di tutti i tipi che di negozi.
Russ ci ha lasciato un promemoria con la cartina del vicinato con segnato tutti i locali interessanti e le fermate della metro.
La casa è a 5 minuti a piedi dalla linea C, ma camminando un po' di più si arriva facilmente anche ad altre linee. Poco lontano inoltre ci sono la biblioteca, il museo di arte e il giardino botanico di Brooklyn.
Sicuramente da tornare!!!!
Great place, excellent location, wonderful space. Our hosts were helpful and unobtrusive, what more could you ask for. They supplied coffee and opened their refrigerator.
I have to say here is the best one I have been . Every year I travel a lot of country but this apartment is best . Because it's worth this price and host very friendly and warmly! The room definitely super nice, quiet and private. I hope I can come back!
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!
