Stay in a lovely artist pad just 3 blocks from the L train. The L train is everybody's favorite nowadays and this is as close as you can get without losing the trees, and old NYC brownstone architecture. There is even a view of backyard gardens from our kitchen window! It's an ideal spot to crash after exploring New York City and Brooklyn! !
You will be just minutes by train from Manhattan in a real NYC neighborhood. Laundromat, Supermarket, Pharmacy are only 1 1/2 blocks away! Ridgewood is quiet and residential just NorthEast of trendy Bushwick - about a 15 minute bicycle ride to historic (website hidden)/locations/new-york/ridgewood
The Apt is on a tree lined block less than a few blocks from the the L and the M trains. The M train provides a direct route to Museum of Modern Art, Greenwich Village,Herald Square, Rockefeller Center and more. The L train passes through Bushwick and Williamsburgh in Brooklyn , continuing to the East Village., Union Square, and the 6th & 8th Ave. lines in Manhattan.
You will have a comfortable area In the music room away from the street noise and adjacent to a common living area and the kitchen with a brand-new air- mattress cotton sheets,down pillows and luxurious cotton towels. At night it will seem like a private 1 bedroom apt -since you will have the living area and use of the kitchen and bathroom without having to pass through a bedroom.

Richard was a great guy to stay with, and he has a great apartment, which is super close to the train. Richard was quite accommodating, and let me work away through the weekend I spent at his place. If only I'd had more time to see New York!
Richard greeted me with some homemade miso soup when I arrived at his apartment. He was very hospitable. Thanks Richard!
Good spot to crash. Richard was more than welcoming and made coffee every morning!
Richard was very hospitable. The subway was nearby. Not a bad option for someone passing through NYC.
Cool, funky creaky old place. Nice host. Good for busy travelers looking for just a place to crash at night at a cheap price; not ideal for travelers looking for privacy.
Richard is a very welcoming host, and his apartment is cosy, aptly equipped and well situated near the Myrtle/Wyckoff subway stop.
Accepting my somewhat desperate call for help after my previous plans fell through, he certainly got me off to a good start on my first visit to New York City!
I had a fun weekend in NY and Richard helped a lot. He was a very kind host. If you are looking for a super suite and no more than that then this is not your place. Richard's place offers other more valuable things for a curious traveler and for a music fan. If you want to discover the NY jazz music scene Richard's suggestions will be of great value. Sleeping in a music room of a new york musician definitive has some advantages. The apartment is very well connected to Manhathan by the L subway.
Richard is extremely kind and helpful. His place is nice and and quiet, but the most important thing is: it will make you feel like home. I was very happy. This place is close to the subway and It's easy to get to Manhattan.
Richard got back to me about 15 minutes after I made my reservation request.
I had an amazing time!
I would definitely recommend this place to other airbnbers!
I really apreciated Richard's hospitality and last-minute acceptance of my reservation!!!....I HAD COMPLETELY RUN OUT OF OPTIONS...when i got the email from him that i could stay for my very last night in NYC!!!!....thanks for being a lifesaver Richard!!! :-) He even welcomed me with a hot cup of tea at 1am in the morning!!!....GREAT HOST!!!
Richard's place was perfect for me as I was working at a nearby hospital for many hours. I slept comfortably and the room had great energy. An eclectic and intelligent person, Richard was a wonderful host. While I did'nt have time for the piano lesson, maybe one day I will. The place is quiet and close to the train station. I highly recommend it.
