My large apartment in Boerum Hill - a charming and convenient Brooklyn neighborhood - has a spacious terrace garden and tons of personality. The guest room is quiet and cozy. My home is next to the subway and a short walk to the Brooklyn Bridge.

The space

Comfortable clean cozy modern room in large apartment with amazing private deck. Fresh linens and towels included.

You are welcome to cook and use the large kitchen. I have an espresso machine, microwave, stove/oven, large fridge, and all the dishes, pots and pans you could need. You are also welcome to use the spices, herbs, oils, and utensils and barbecue on the deck weather permitting.

I love, love, love our neighborhood. It's very centrally located for NYC. 10 minutes to Manhattan by subway. Tons of fantastic restaurants, outdoor cafes, boutiques, galleries, bars, and great people watching. Beautiful brownstone and tree lined streets. We have a wonderful butcher, cheese shop, wine shop, grocery store, and bread shop all within a short walk.

The apartment is near the Brooklyn Bridge, the Promenade, BAM, DUMBO, and Downtown Brooklyn. You can even walk to Chinatown and Wall Street from my place if you are inspired.

The building is on the Bergen stop of the F and G subway trains - steps from the entrance. Taxi cabs are pretty easy to find outside the apartment.

Note: This is my home. I'm a New Yorker with a very typical, busy New York life. I work regular hours during the week but also come in and out throughout the day. My boyfriend lives nearby and I'm often at his house and often out of town on the weekends. I really enjoy hosting and meeting people from around the world. I'm happy to share food and drink and give tips on what to do and sit and chat but this is not a hotel or a traditional bed and breakfast. It's just a spare room in my 2-bedroom apartment that I rent out to good nice people from around the world like you.

The apartment is over a residential garage. Maybe twice a day, the garage door is opened electronically and it can be loud. I'm so used to it I don't notice it and no guest has ever complained, but I can imagine someone might be surprised to hear it for the first time.

I used to have a lovely cat but she recently passed away from old age. I mention her because she is in some photos and she is spoken of fondly in many of the reviews.

This was my first Airbnb experience and it was awesome! Scott was a wonderful host and his place gave me a first hand experience of how living in NYC would be. Great location for subways and I’m forever spoiled because he lives literally feet from Starbucks when you walk out his door!

I don't even think there is enough time to write all of the positive things about this airbnb experience. First of all, this was our first time using airbnb, and we are now afraid to use it again only because there is no possible way anywhere else could ever compare. The neighborhood was safe and beautiful and the balcony was absolutely incredible. Scott was exceedingly kind, gracious, and knowledgeable. We had the most amazing time and I definitely recommend Scott's place.

Scott's place is in a perfect location and everything he shared on his profile is 100%. We walked twice to Manhattan via the BKLYN bridge. There are turns of restaurants around the area. The unit is clean and so is the neighborhood. Train line is footsteps away. Thank you Scott!

I don't even know where to begin. Scott's place was the perfect getaway. Just what my husband and I needed to relax and enjoy New York at our own pace. We were visiting family and would have loved to go to more of Scott's suggestions. He's such a gracious host, not overbearing by any means, and will share any gems if you ask. Though it was a shared space, it felt like it was just us most of the time. We would definitely stay here again.

Scott's place was absolutely perfect; I can't imagine picking a better place to live out our little fantasy of Brooklyn life for a week. It was impeccably clean (not easy in the city!), beautifully decorated and clearly well-loved--NOT one of those half-empty, unlived-in Airbnbs you sometimes run into. Having the leafy green terrace in the summer was a downright luxury--after a day out, we could sit there with a bottle of wine and just relax. We cooked sparingly (too many great restaurants nearby!), but everything was in place for it. The apartment close to everything (amazing restaurants, great stores, Trader Joe's), and just a short block to the F train to go into Manhattan. It had great vibes. I feel super lucky to have found it, and can only hope we get to visit again!

I'm a world traveler who appreciates the mix of city and country living. NYC (Boerum Hill Brooklyn) is my home. My friend Teah and I own a great little cabin near Phoenicia in the Catskills 2 hours north of midtown Manhattan. My boyfriend Eli and I just built a sweet house on a lake in Bethel also in the Catskills.

By day, I work as a public interest lawyer fighting evil banks in court and advocating for LGBT rights. All other times, I swim, run, bike, drink well, eat well, cook, read, listen to great music, and sort of just wander around taking it all in.

I genuinely enjoy playing host and meeting people from around the world.
