Interaction with guests
The apartment layout allows guests as much privacy as they would like.
My work schedule varies from week to week. I'm a freelance musician, teacher, and audio engineer - I'm usually out working, but occasionally work work from home on both weekdays and weekends.
I'm always available via text message or phone if you need something.
I enjoy having travelers in my home and love getting to know guests when the opportunity arises.
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. There are several parks nearby, and the apartment is on the edge of the Bedford-Stuyvesant historic district, filled with tree-lined streets and Victorian-era architecture. I have lived in this neighborhood for about 3 years and I really enjoy the area.
The neighborhood, called Bed-Stuy by locals, is filled with a variety of restaurants, ranging from French, Caribbean, Mexican, Italian, Chinese, Thai, Japanese, among others.
The neighborhood is well-lit and safe to walk around at all times. You'll find that there are people out and about 24/7, and many shops are open late at night.
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 25-35 minutes.
On my block, there are cafés, restaurants, a pharmacy, two laundromats, a fruit and vegetable market, a healthcare center, 24/7 convenience stores, a liquor store, and a variety of shops.
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 60-90 minutes.
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.
Two buses stop right in front of my building, which will take you to Fort Greene, Downtown Brooklyn, and Williamsburg.
It's very easy to get a cab near the apartment, either by hailing one from the street or using apps such as Uber or Lyft.
There is plenty of free parking next to the building, as well as metered parking. There is a parking garage one block away from the apartment.
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). It helps us keep the apartment clean.
-No food or drinks in the music room, particularly around the instruments.
I'm a musician, audio engineer, and music teacher who teaches around the NYC area.
I love having travelers stay in my home and look forward to meeting you.
