Interaction with Guests
You may have interactions with other guests in the common areas. I work very long days so you may only see me on occasion. My permanent roommate Dave is home more often, he serves as a host when I am not there. I am always reachable by phone or text. Three other rooms in the apartment are rented on this site. You can view these rooms under the "Other Listings" section.
The neighborhood is a Puerto Rican immigrant community. This area of Bushwick is at the beginning of getting 'hipster' bars and coffee shops. It is a vibrant neighborhood, specifically in the warmer months, and can be busy at times outside the house. I like to remind guests to keep noise to a minimum being that it is a shared space.
THE NEIGHBORHOOD IS VERY SAFE. I have been here for 9 years without any issues. My guests have never had any issues as well. There are many people around on the streets at all hours. We are right next to the train for those who are out late in the evening as well.
We are 1 block away from the L train, 15 minutes to the city and a few blocks away from the JMZ train.
USE HOPSTOP FOR DIRECTIONS!
It is also available as an app. This will tell you much more clear detailed instructions on getting here from the airport and getting around the city in general.
Bushwick car service is another service I use.
The house is approximately: 20 minutes away from LaGuardia Airport 25 minutes away from JFK Airport 35-45 minutes away from Newark Airport (these are average times with minimal traffic)

I had no problems getting to marks place. The apartment was nice and there was coffee and tea for guests to help themselves to. Everything was super clean and our room was really warm. We were out most of the time so we didn't get a chance to meet mark, but he let us know that he was available if we needed anything. It was a good first experience with airbnb!
Mark was a great host!! and made the check in processes very easy. Instructions on getting the keys were clear and I had no trouble finding it at all. The room was clean, and comfortable. A great value, would definitely stay again!
Mark was very easy to get a hold of and gave prompt instructions/feedback. The room was clean and I really enjoyed how close the location is to the subway.
Chambre très agréable donnant sur un petit jardin. La chambre est très bien chauffée pour les hivers rudes de New York. Petite cuisine commune pratique pour les repas.
La chambre était très poussiéreuse à notre arrivée mais Mark a tout de suite réglé le problème.
Le logement se trouve à deux pas de la ligne L de métro donnant un accès direct à Manhattan. La ligne M est également proche et pratique.
Mark's place was very welcoming! A nice warm clean place that was very accommodating to an early arrival. Very close to both the M and L trains and we could easily get into and out of the city. The place was exactly as was advertised on his page, unfortunately we weren't able to meet Mark but he was readily available through text/phone call and helped us with everything he could! We would definitely stay again!!!
Mark gave us very specific instructions ahead of time for entry, etc. It worked fine
Thanks for the brownies, they were delicious! I loved the place. Wish I lived there! Very good communication as well.

I am an artist originally from Rhode Island. I have been living in Bushwick for over 10 years. My roommate/friend Dave is a musician and here to help when I am not available. As a host I like make myself available if needed but otherwise try to give all guests their privacy.
