Interaction with Guests
Three other rooms in the apartment are rented on this site. 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 roommate Dave is home more often, he serves as a host when I am not there. I am always reachable by phone or text. You can view my other 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)
Other Things to Note

Mark er en ryddig og omtenksom vert. Rommet i leiligheten var som bestilt; rent, ryddig, med et velutstyrt kjøkken og en bakgård man har direkte tilgang til om man bor i det grønne rommet. Jeg likte nabolaget veldig godt og det er også kort vei til ulike subway linjer. Hadde for øvrig stor glede av å spise frokost fra et spansk bakeri like i nærheten.
My friend and I had a great stay in the green room. It was comfortable, clean and really quiet which was just what we needed after a long flight in. We didn't have the pleasure of meeting Mark, but Dave was exceptionally hospitable. I would be happy to stay there next time I'm in the city!
My son and I stayed at Mark's place for a week and I would definitely recommend it for a short stay in NYC. The room is not too big but very cosy, it has its own fridge (great for keeping fresh water at hand when nights are warm) and has a door to the garden, which is ideal if you are a smoker or if you enjoy watching squirrels run around !! Huge closets and quite comfy bed too.
The room is right next to the bathroom, which has a great power shower. However, if you want to leave early, then rise early, as up to 8 people can share the bathroom at the same time. The kitchen is very nice and has everything you need if you're cooking + dinner table for 2.
The area is totally safe (even late at night) and very conveniently located, two subway stations around the corner, the L train will take you directly into Manhattan or great places in Brooklyn. Everything you need within walking distance, grocery stores, supermarkets, restaurants, coffee house (delicious cakes)... and friendly and helpful people who will take the time to give you directions if you get lost... amazing !
I only met Mark once but he is very friendly and extremely reliable, will respond to emails/texts within minutes, literally. Also he is very considerate and attentive to your needs and concerns.
What a great week it was ! Can't wait to go back :-)
I booked this room for two friends (and another one at Mark's for myself) while we visited NYC. We enjoyed our stay at this affordable, welcoming and clean place a lot.

About the Host, Mark
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.
