About this listing
If Proust lived in Brooklyn....A sunny and quiet, classically styled apartment. Access to bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen. This warm, family-oriented neighborhood is a bit rough on the eyes at first, but filled with hidden gems. Beautiful park nearby!
Come enjoy this spacious and sunny flat near Prospect Park. The price is amended in exchange for cat care (feeding/loving) as she will be living in the apartment from 9/3 - 9/6. Thanks!
Hi there! Come stay in a spacious, sunny, warm one bedroom apartment. You will have a private room. There is also a huge closet in the hallway, in case you have a lot of stuff. Full-length tub, eat-in kitchen, huge living room, roof access, original hardwood floors, great sky views, wi-fi along with sheets and towels are all included.
Please note that the stove doesn't work, but that there is an electric skillet that you can make just about anything with. You might have to see it to imagine it, but it works very well.
Located off the Winthrop stop on the 2 or 5 trains which are 1 block away. Or you can walk a few more blocks to the Q train at the Parkside stop. The B44 stops just outside the building. Super close to the amazing Prospect Park and Botanical Gardens.
There's a shiny new laundromat right across the street as well as a Key Food 2 blocks to your left and a C-Town 1 block to your right. There's also a huge 99cent store where you can get just about anything under the sun right next door. Also nearby is the awesome Jamaican buffet "New Soldiers", which has the best Jamaican food I've ever had in NYC. It is a mostly West Indian neighborhood, and has tons of little shops with great food.
A few stops north on the 2 or 5 trains will take you to the lively Franklin Ave neighborhood. With places like the Franklin Park Beer Garden, Dutch Boy Burgers, Breuklyn Coffeehouse, and Chavella's, there are tons of food and drink options. Also, the Brooklyn Museum and Brooklyn Library are nearby. One stop north on the Q will bring you to the adorable Lincoln Rd neighborhood with the Blue Roost Coffeeshop as well as Cafe Enduro.
If I am home, you will be staying with me: a world-travelling actress/ yoga instructor. I've been to every continent, play a bit of piano, love Shakespeare, spreche etwas Deutsch, and am originally from South Carolina. I am a great host (Southern hospitality) and love helping people with their travel plans, if need be.
Looking forward to meeting you!
You will have a private bedroom with a door to yourself. Shared bathroom and eat-in kitchen. Day access to a comfy living room with plenty of books, desk, plants, and record player.
Interaction with Guests
It's pretty capricious. I do work a lot, so sometimes I'm barely home. Other times, I have more time to hang out and get a drink or something. It depends on my schedule.
Sometimes I am out of town, and not at the apartment at all.
I love the West Indian food and vibe in this neighborhood. Very laid-back. Also, just a ten minute walk to Prospect Park! You come out near the lake and they just opened up an ice-skating rink there.
The subway is just a couple of blocks away!
Other Things to Note
It would be great if anyone interested in staying has a profile picture, and info about themselves. This is my home, after all. I would love to know who is coming to stay!
I'm pretty easy-going... No smoking, no shoes, no guests, no crazy amounts of noise or dirtiness.
Just be a normal, respectful person. :)
