Interaction with Guests
My work schedule varies from week to week. I'm a musician, teacher, and audio engineer - I’m usually out working during the day, but occasionally work on projects or teach music lessons at home in the afternoons. I’m always available by phone or text message if you need something. I love getting to know my guests and enjoy having travelers in my home.
My place is located in Brooklyn’s diverse, multicultural and bustling neighborhood of Bedford-Stuyvesant, an eclectic area that is quickly becoming the go-to neighborhood of Brooklyn.
You’ll be right by the C local train at Kingston-Throop Ave, which will take you to lower Manhattan in 15 minutes and to midtown (areas like Times Square and Central Park) in 25-30 minutes.
The neighborhood is well-lit and safe to walk around at all times.
On my block, there is a café, a pharmacy, a large supermarket, two laundromats, a fruit and vegetable market, a healthcare center, 24/7 convenience stores, a liquor store, among other restaurants, and a variety of shops There is also a park directly behind the apartment.
It’s a short walk to trendy bars, cafés, and restaurants, shopping, as well as a large supermarket with an ample organic selection.
Additionally, it’s a quick bus or train ride to Brooklyn Academy of Music, Brooklyn Museum, Prospect Park, Brooklyn Botanical Gardens, Brooklyn Bridge, Barclay’s Center (home of the Brooklyn Nets) and to the Willamsburg, Fort Greene, and Downtown Brooklyn neighborhoods.
The apartment is right next to the C train at Kingston-Throop Avenue. The C train will take you to lower Manhattan in 15 minutes and to Midtown with areas like Times Square and Columbus Circle (Central Park) in 25-30 minutes.
Both JFK and LaGuardia airports are about 20 minutes away via cab, depending on traffic (it usually costs around $30). These airports can also be reached via public transportation, which takes about an hour.
It’s also a 6 minute walk to the A express train at Nostrand Ave and a 12 minute walk or a quick bus ride to the 3 train at Kingston Ave.
The B25 and B43 bus stops right in front of my building, taking you to Fort Greene, Downtown Brooklyn, and Williamsburg.
There is plenty of free parking around the building.
Other Things to Note
There is no elevator. If you are concerned about carrying your luggage up or down the stairs (there are three flights), we're more than happy to help - we have lots of practice. :)
-Take off your shoes at the door (you're welcome to leave your shoes there).
-No food or drinks in the music room, particularly around the piano.
Summer's place is as depicted in the pictures: clean and cozy with a homey feeling. It is conveniently located right above the C-line subway station, which was a quick 30-min subway ride from Port Authority (we took the Greyhound to NYC). We didn't get to interact with Summer too much since we were out exploring the city, but she would always ask us how was our day/trip when she saw us. On our last day, she even gave us a little souvenir.
Overall, we had a pleasant stay at Summer's place and she prepared everything we possibly needed (e.g. made space in the fridge, have breakfast and coffee available, a guest handbook with restaurant recommendations and transit instructions, a fan for hot days, one-time use eye mask and ear plugs, additional blankets/pillows, maps and travel guide...etc.) I would recommend this place to others.
We stayed at Summer's apartment one week and it was just perfect. Summer is an awesome host and she gave us a warm welcome when we arrived after a long 24 hour trip. The communication was always (before and during our stay) great. She answered very quickly to my messages and gave us great suggestions for NY. She did everything that we felt comfortable. Summer even gave us a present when left. The apartment is exactly as shown on the pics. It's clean and very cozy. The area is really nice and offers a lot of restaurants and food stores. The subway is just one minute to walk and it takes only around 20 minutes to Manhattan by the subway. I recommend Summer's apartment and would come back to stay there anytime again. We really enjoyed it!
Nous avons tout d'abord été très bien accueillis. L'appartement de Summer est très propre et très agréable. Il se trouve à coté d'une station de métro sur une ligne qui dessert bien Manhattan. Avec le décalage nous nous couchions avant notre hôte et nous n'avons jamais été dérangés par aucun bruit. Nous recommandons ce logement.
Merci encore Summer pour ta gentillesse !
This was my first time using airbnb, and I had a great stay at Summer's place; she is an amazing host. Her apartment is tidy and well kept; shops and restaurants are nearby, everything is at your feet. No need to walk long distances to the metro station, it was 30 seconds away from the apartment.
I would definitely come back again and recommend this place.
Le quartier est idéalement situé. Les photos parfaitement conforme. Et Summer est une hote très accueillante et arrangeante, l'accueil est très bien.
L'appartement est très propre et je recommande ce logement de très bon rapport qualité prix
Summer was an excellent host and everything in her apartment was as described. We saw her twice and she was very accommodating, giving directions into the city, and making sure we had enough room (our 15 year old son was traveling with us.) - we did have enough room; her small apartment was actually very spacious! It was thoroughly modern, immaculate, and it was especially helpful that she had dairy-free items in her fridge for breakfast.
