We have a loft in Brooklyn that is a 15 minute subway ride to Union Square from the Morgan stop on the L train. The train stop is only a block and a half away, about 4 min walk. We are located in a quickly growing industrial/artist neighborhood. There is an amazing brick oven pizza restaurant down the street as well as several bars, coffee shops, organic food stores, wine shops, and galleries. Our area is really fun and there is always something going on. We also have a big fluffy cat who will demand attention and love.
We have a fully stocked kitchen, a dinning/living room , several shelves of books, a big soft velvet couch, a full wall of windows with a lot of light. We do not have a television, but we do have a projector and screen for movies as well as a stereo system. Your room is a large, fully furnished space with a sleep loft, dresser and mirror, a place for hanging clothes, a desk and chair, plenty of light, and a fluffy wool rug. You are welcome to use the kitchen and hang out in the living room and even play the piano as much as you want!
You will probably see us around the living room at night doing our homework.
* My husband and I live in this apartment too. You are renting out a private room, not the whole apartment. However, we warn you that it is a loft, and if you have ever stayed in one you'll know that it is not completely private and our rooms are in close proximity to one another. If you are a couple looking for lots of alone time with full sound tight privacy, we recommend a hotel or a sound-proofed apartment. Also, our building is full of young weekend warriors who work hard during the week and sometimes party hard on the weekend. It is completely quite and relaxed during the weekdays, but it can get noisy on the weekends. Because of this, we want to warn any families or older individuals who are considering our place. We believe our space is best suited for friends, single persons, or any friendly individuals who like getting to meet and stay with new people.*
**About the sleeping arrangement: there is one full sized bed, and you have the option of the twin sized fold-out bed. So if you have three people staying, two have to sleep together in the full sized bed and one gets the fold-out. There are not three beds, and the room can get pretty tight with three people. So we would only recommend it for three close friends with a small amount of baggage.**
***Minimum stay is 3 days, but if you see in our calendar two free days between other booked days then please contact us and we will let you book the room for those two days.***
ABOUT SECURITY DEPOSIT: Recently we decided to start charging security deposit because at times guests have damaged our things, like hair die all over new sheets, broken expensive glasses, taken international charger or excessive mess left behind. We don't charge cleaning fee, expecting the room will be left the way it was found. But when the room left too dirty we will charge 20 to 40 dollars depending on how bad it was.
Thank You! Talk to you soon!

Beyond the bedroom, guests can use the kitchen, refrigerator, living room and dining area, and of course the bathroom. The roof is open as well. There are also plenty of books around that you can look at and read.
We are always open to answering any questions that guests may have about the city or the area. Also, we are usually down with having a drink or two together and getting to know each other. However, we do work a lot from home as we are freelancers, so there are times that we are in our office area being antisocial.
Great first experience with airbnb! Had an amazing time at Liliya & Michael's place. The loft is full of character & I felt right at home. Both Liliya & Michael were so helpful & welcoming, I don't think a day went past where I wasn't offered food. They showed me all the cool local places, from groceries to the gym, as well as keeping me clued up about things happening in NYC. Not to mention impeccable music taste! Only about 15 mins from manhattan on the L line, couldn't really have found anywhere better!
Thanks for a great stay, I hope to see you both soon in London!
It's been the most pleasant stay ever in New York! Good tour guide service is provided, and it's the nicest people you'll meet!
The loft really was picture perfect. Lots of character and in a great neighborhood. Lilliya and Michael were incredibly nice and considerate, and we had a great stay. Thank you!
This loft is beautiful with lots of light. Me and my sister had a lovely time and Mr. Mud puddles is the sweetest cat!
We loved our stay with Liliya and Michael, and will definitely recommend their place to others. Their loft is a very funky fit out in a unique and hipster area and had everything we needed. Just a 2 minute walk to the metro line was SO helpful with many cafes, restaurants and shops all within close walking distance.
Liliya and Michael themselves were very helpful and friendly. We enjoyed chatting with them throughout our stay and getting to know them. They have developed a personalised guide to the 'Bushwick area' - outlining nearby shops, cafes, restaurants, the metro, laundromats, amenities and other tips including several maps…the 'bible' of local knowledge to Bushwick!
Lastly, but most certainly not least - Mr Mud Puddles (the cat) is very charming and has an insane amount of character for a furry four legged friend!
Thanks so much Liliya and Michael, we loved it!
It was such an amazing stay!!!
The interior desolation was so stylish and the house owner was very kind.
The loft was clean and totally big enough for us two.
And what's more, they have a amazing!! He is so fluffy and quiet and loves human beings so much. I am very glad that I got to stay there in my entire trip in NY.
Thank you so much.
Liliya and Michael are wonderful hosts with a charming loft and a comfortable room. I slept on the loft bed and my 16 year old son slept on the fold out couch/bed. I appreciate an Airbnb that sleeps two and is not only for couples! The subway is very close and easy to get into Manhattan and the Bushwick neighborhood is interesting. Also, if you are driving there is ample free street parking.
Awesome stay! Liliya and Michael are awesome and accommodating hosts, not to mention fun. The location is right in the middle of a hip up and coming neighborhood but still only steps away from the subway to get you where you need to go. Absolutely no complaints here.
Liliya and Michael are very good hosts. Their apartment is clean (even in spite they have a cat), cosy and very well decorated. It's located 15 minutes from downtown and there are several nice places to visit nearby (like amazing sushi place right around the corner). I can definitely recommend to stay there :)
My friends and I really enjoyed staying at Liliya's wonderful apartment. We will never forget our trip to NYC. Thank you very much!
