Interaction with Guests
3 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 available. You can view my other rooms under the "Other Listings" section.
The neighborhood is a Puerto Rican immigrant community. Mixed with old gritty industrial areas and new luxury buildings. All kinds of creative types have been filing into Bushwick and a considerable amount of trendiness is trickling in from its ultra-hip neighbor to the west, Williamsburg. New dive bars, bodegas, and gallery spaces continue to flourish, fueled by the intrepid movers and shakers that are pouring into Bushwick’s converted loft spaces. Although Bushwick is busy reinventing itself, a somewhat grungy heart still beats beneath its remodeled exterior. The Neighborhood Is Very Safe. I have been here for 10 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 Dekalb stop L train, 15 minutes to the city and a few blocks away from the JMZ train. USE HOPSTOP FOR SUBWAY 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. 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
The rooms are cleaned before arrival and upon exit. Fresh linens and towels are provided. I do not provide toiletries. The bathroom is shared and can be busy at times in the morning, I like to remind all guests to please keep bathroom time to a minimum for other guests. Check in time is 2:00. Check out time is 12:00 NOON. I unfortunately do not store luggage or personals after checkout time. The earliest guests can arrive is 2:00 to allow former guests to depart and rooms to be cleaned. There is a quick turnover with guests and exchanging keys is difficult with my work. Please arrange travel accordingly. Profile pictures are very helpful to have up; it's nice to have a face with a name. (I Unfortunately Do Not Allow Guests Under The Age Of 18 Or Guests With Serious Medical Conditions).
Please Let Me Know If You Have Any Complaints When Staying So We Can Quickly Address The Issue! I try to keep everyone happy who stays with us, please communicate any concerns before leaving.

Mark and company are great! The apartment and our room were very well organized with instructions in key places to let you know where to find things, how to operate things (internet, etc.) and reminders for things to run a smooth ship. He made our guests feel welcome. Again, WELL ORGANIZED, CLEAN, GREAT GARDEN AMBIENCE, and ACCESSIBLE TO PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION and cool neighborhood. Will use these facilities again soon!!!
I stayed in this room one night. I managed to get in using the instructions Mark gave me, by opening the lockbox. Kitchen looked nice, bathroom also, it was clean. Room is as in picture, down to the towel in the bed. Mattress could probably be a bit better, but overall it was a good experience. I like the airport and managed to get to the airport from there using the public transport. Gotta love New York in the summer.
This was a beautiful, clean room with a garden view.
I felt safe and secure the entire 2 night stay. The other guests were kind and respectful and quiet. The communal spaces were kept very clean.
The train was only a few blocks away and I felt safe returning during evening hours.
This is an excellent room! 5 Stars!
It was our fist experience with rbnb and it was great. We didn't meet Mark but we follow all the instructions that he gave us and everything was so easy. Super well located and so close to the underground. The neighbourhood way so cool, non touristic. The room was nice and clean an there was a cozy garden. We really recomend this place.
Mark was a great host! We spent a great time in NYC visiting lots of neighborhoods. The room is very quite and neat. Also the location is really close to L line which connects to Union Square and Chelsea Market without a transfer. My friend and I are planning to visit again at the end of this month cuz we are so sure that it can't be better than this in terms of the room's condition, location and price.
Wir verbrachten 4 sehr angenehme Nächte in Mark 's "green room",welcher mit direktem Anschluss zum Garten jedes Frühstück zum schönen Auftakt in den Tag und jedes Abendessen zum entspannten Ausklingen machte. Die Beschreibung des Appartments war sehr genau und wir gelangten recht schnell zu unserem Ziel, welches Wie versprochen sehr nahe an der mit der L zu erreichenden Dekalb Av lag. Das Viertel gefiel uns ebenfalls sehr gut, durch die entspannte Atmosphäre und die zahlreichen Möglichkeiten zum einkaufen oder essen gehen.
Man ist durch die Linien L und M super bis ins Stadt innere verbunden findet jedoch Ruhe um sich vom Hektischen New York und den vielen Eindrücken zu erholen.
Insgesamt sind wir sehr zufrieden mit unserem Aufenthalt, vielen Dank!

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.
