Our home is located along the NYC Marathon route, just steps away from Pratt Institute, on a tree lined block in the historic neighborhood of Clinton Hill. Cozy eateries, farmer and flea markets, shops and boutiques abound. We are a short walk from Fort Greene Park, Brooklyn Academy of Music, The Barclay Center and several of Brooklyn's most historical churches. The Brooklyn Museum, Prospect Park and the Brooklyn Heights Promenade are a short train, bus, or even bike ride away. Clinton Hill is uniquely central to many of Brooklyn’s other trendy neighborhoods. Subway and buses stations are less than 2 blocks from the house and it's less than a 30 minute ride into Manhattan.

We had a lovely stay. The apartment was spotlessly clean and there were resources available with local recommendations, directions and other helpful details. Shirley was an excellent host!
One thing to note, however, is the apartment's proximity to the subway. While it is very convenient in terms of transport, it is quite loud. We were surprised to find that we heard the subway pass under the adjacent street regularly. For us it wasn't a huge deal but it is worth considering if you are a light sleeper.
We traveled in USA for three weeks and without any doubt our week in Shirley's apartment was the best of all the places we stayed at. Shirley's hospitality was very welcoming. The apartment was fully equipped and very quaint and clean, just like the description on Airbnb. Shirley was more than happy to assist with any questions we had regarding NYC and anything else. One of us got sick and Shirley even helped us book a doctors appointment and a taxi to get us there.
It is ideally located and every attraction we wanted to go to was just a couple of subway stops away. The subway station is literally a 2 minute walk from the apartment. The neighborhood was very safe, we felt comfortable to walk home late at night.
There is a lovely little grocery store across the road where we bought fresh meat and veges to prepare homemade meals in the fully equipped kitchen.
We had a very pleasant and comfortable stay in this apartment and would easily recommend it.
Eine sehr schöne, gut gelegene und mit viel Geschmack gestaltete Wohnung. Sehr gut ausgestattet (insbesondere die Küche), sehr gepflegte Wohnung mit Garten. Subway ist sehr nah. Es war ein sehr angenehmer und schöner Aufenthalt. Herzlichen Dank für alles, war völlig unkompliziert und nett.
El apartamento de Shirley ha sido nuestra mejor eleccion en NYC.
Super euipado, con todo lo que necesitamos para una gran estadia.
Ella fue muy amable en dejarnos hacer el check in antes de lo estipulado.
Muy comodo para moverse, ya que el subterraneo esta a pocas cuadras, en 30 minutos estabamos en pleno Manhattan.
El barrio es muy tranquilo con todo lo que uno necesita cerca. Un supermercado en la esquina, muchas cafeteria, y muy seguro por la noche.
No tengo mas que palabras de agradecimiento para ella, y sin dudas volveria a su casa.
Lo recomiendo para todos aquellos que le guste la tranquilidad.
Gracias Shirley por todo.
It was my first experience with AirBnB and it was perfect. The Apartment is awesome, cozy, clean, quiet and very well located. The kitchen is fully equipped and has some basic stuffs like (salt, oil, sugar...), however if you need something there is a market, coffee shop and a Deli very close. Shirley is an amazing host, she responded all my messages very quickly. My girlfriend and I had a great time in her apartment.
We had a very nice experience. The house is clean and quiet. The kitchen is well equipped, all the necessary shops and the subway are really close. Shirley was a wonderful host and she also allowed us to left our luggage even after check-out. We'd recommend it to anyone.
5 stars for location, price, quality and everything.
My stay in Shirley's apartment was beyond perfect. This was my first booking with Airbnb and I could not have asked for anything more. Check in was a breeze, Shirley met me and showed me around the apartment.
The apartment is a beautiful space with everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay. I stayed here for a month and as a solo traveller, the space felt like home and I was a little sad to leave!
I was a 19 year old female travelling alone and I can't emphasise enough how safe I felt in the area. The G subway is a 4 minute walk from the doorstep and the C about 10 minutes, both are able to get you into Manhattan in about 30 - 40 minutes. I had many evenings where I was home late and had to walk in the dark, I had no problems with feeling safe, the streets are all well lit and there were always people about walking dogs or heading home.
The area is fantastic, the supermarket or grocery store right outside your door and plenty of cute cafes and restaurants. I loved my stay here and am very much looking forward to coming back to the Clinton Hill area when I return.
