Interaction with Guests

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).

Mark was nice and the room was very clean. The garden right next to room was also great. I've never seen airbnb room like this before. And the access to metro was so good, it was easy to go to Manhattan by subway. One day or more days stay both is recommendable.
The apartment of Mark is really nice and clean, close to the subway and groceries. I spent 2 nights with my little sister in this room and we really enjoyed this moment: it looks like the pictures, we had access to the backyard and the neighbors are really quite.
We didn't have the opportunity to see Mark but no matter, he explained everything.
Abbiamo soggiornato nell'appartamento di Mark per 6 notti. Le istruzioni per accedere all'appartamento che Mark aveva inviato erano molto dettagliate e non abbiamo avuto problemi a trovare le chiavi. La camera era pulita e in ottime condizioni, il giardino sul retro molto carino. In generale l'appartamento è ben organizzato, ci sono piccole indicazioni sparpagliate per la casa, essenziali visto che le camere con ospiti sono 3. Il quartiere è tranquillo,nei dintorni ci sono negozi di ogni genere,anche un centro (website hidden) metro della linea L è a due isolati,in 20 minuti porta nel centro di Manhattan.Purtroppo a causa degli orari differenti abbiamo incontrato Mark solo il giorno del nostro arrivo, comunque lui ci ha contattato durante il nostro soggiorno per accertarsi che non avessimo bisogno di nulla, e si è dimostrato molto disponibile.
Mark was a great host! The room was amazing: neat, clean, lots of closet space, and access to the cutest outdoor garden. Great location and close to everything. Definitely would book again!
Mark sent detailed instructions before we checked in explaining in detail how we were to find the keys etc. He checked with us upon arrival to make sure we had everything we needed and each day thereafter. Any questions we had , we just texted him and he replied immediately. The room was clean and comfortable with tons of closet space, clean towels and the bathroom was right next door. The neighborhood was as described - we loved the coffee shop on the corner and felt very safe arriving "home" in the middle of the night . The L-train is right around the corner which takes you straight into the city!
I had a great time, it was easy to find and literally in the middle of 2 subway stops that get you to Manhattan. The green room is wonderful, you have access to a nice backyard garden. The bed was more than ok, I normally don't have trouble with beds unless they're too soft. The only negative thing I have to say about it is that the apartment door is a little hard to open, just some extra maneuvering needed. But otherwise a pleasant stay! Also, a perk that I didn't expect was towels! Towels were provided.

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.
