We're an easy stroll to Prospect Park, live music venues, bars & restaurants, shopping, museums, NY Marathon route, flea & farmers markets, art galleries and much more. We are both long time Brooklyn residents and are happy to help out with whatever you're looking for.

The room itself has three solid walls, with the fourth consisting of large sound-proof panels. Our bedroom has all solid walls.

Our interaction with our guests varies. We will always meet you in person to give you keys, and will be present throughout your stay.
After that, it really depends on scheduling. We've had a fair number of guests that wake up later in the morning after we've left for work, have breakfast, visit some of the rich culture that New York provides, go out for dinner and drinks, and then arrive home again after we've gone to sleep. These people have had a great time, but our interaction has been minimal.
Other guests have been around more and we've cooked for them, watched movies together, and gone out to some local Brooklyn spots and had a great time.
We know what a busy, crowded and potentially stressful city New York can be. It can be a complete culture shock to even those who are used to city living. As a general rule of thumb, we tend to stay out of people's hair, because after a long day of running around the city, the best thing to come home to is a quiet sanctuary to unwind and relax. However, if you want to hang out, please let us know. We love meeting new people, which is one of the reasons we are hosts on Air Bnb.
Park Slope is one of of the best neighborhoods around, as it has literally everything you could want. Walk east and you're at Prospect Park, a 585-acre public park designed by Frederick Law Olmsted. It features tons of open space, a zoo, ice skating, biking, running, ball fields, food trucks and more.
Walk north, and there's great shopping & restaurants. Our guidebook has all of our favorite picks for area locations.
Walk south, and you'll find Green-Wood Cemetery. Inspired by Mount Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where a cemetery in a naturalistic park-like landscape in the English manner was first established, Green-Wood was able to take advantage of the varied topography provided by glacial moraines. Battle Hill, the highest point in Brooklyn, is on cemetery grounds, rising approximately 200 feet above sea level. As such, there on that spot in 1920, was erected a Revolutionary War monument by Frederick Ruckstull, Altar to Liberty: Minerva. From this height, the bronze Minerva statue gazes towards The Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor.
One of the best parts about getting around from our place, is that it's on two, totally separate train lines. Two blocks away is the R (and the D & N later at night and on weekends). Take it to Times Square, Madison Square Garden, Rockefeller Center, NYU, LaGuardia Airport and all placed in between. It, like all other subway stations are 24 hours, and easily accessible.
Five blocks away are the F and G trains, which of course, run to completely different parts of the city, like Williamsburg, the Lower East Side and Long Island City.
We find it invaluable to have two different lines so close to our place, because if one is undergoing repairs, the other will be running.
We are also on a bike lane, and there is always plenty of free parking. We are by plenty of bus lines as well, if you enjoy getting around that way.
We love hosting on Air Bnb, and warmly welcome you into your home. Please treat it with the respect and love you would your own. :)

We had a great stay at Adam and Sarah's place. The overall space is huge, and the room is incredibly spacious as well. Everything was clean and easy to figure out. We also appreciated being close to the F, R, and G trains, as well as a good selection of food nearby (i.e. great tacos, coffee, and pie).
Our only warning would be for people who are not so familiar with New York or who don't like industrial areas. There is a lot of truck traffic in the area, including expressways, and this can create noise at times.
We had a very busy schedule while there, so didn't get to hang out with Adam and Sarah much. From the exchanges we did have, however, they seemed like very nice people.
Adam and Sarah were wonderful hosts to my friend Andy and I. They were able to greet us when we arrived, gave us a nice list of nearby restaurants and other convenient places, invited us along to events with their friends and made us feel extremely welcome in Brooklyn. The room is quite large and both beds are very comfortable. I would highly recommend staying with Adam and Sarah!
Our stay with Adam and Sarah was delightful!
We were very content with our communication with our hosts, the loft room was spacious and the location was perfect for our stay!
Adam and Sarah were great! My parents stayed with them on their visit to the city, and they were wonderful hosts. Would definitely recommend their place.
Just a little problem: since I am from Brazil, I could not call them on the phone, so I just sent them an e-mail. Despite Adam was at home when I came, he didn't listen when I knocked the door and he was expecting that I would call him. So my tip is: Say to them if you don't have a phone! Their place is big and if they are in their bedroom at the moment, they will not listen to the door.
I came to Adam and Sarah's place one day before my friend Ruben. Ruben didn't have the problem I had.
Despite this issue, Adam and Sarah are great hosts! We feel like we were home and any doubt we had about the city (and about an US phone number =P), they answered! They were very, very helpful.
The area turned out to be really safe, we came back late of the night (midnights, 1 am or 3 am) and we had no problems.
We recommend Adam and Sarah as hosts.
We enjoyed our stay there.
Thanks to Adam and Sarah!
I stayed at Adam's place for one night and all was fine. The room is huge and gets lots of light; the bed is very comfortable. The building is on a busy corner but with the windows shut and the AC on, I was not bothered by traffic noise while sleeping. Adam and Sarah were good communicators and Adam offered to help me carry my heavy bag up the stairs - they are on the third floor and the room is upstairs inside the loft. All in all, they have a very cool space and I'm happy that they were willing to share it with me.
it would have been helpful to know that this apartment is in the loudest part of Brooklyn. Even with earplugs it was hard to find some sleep. I think it's also an important information, that this room doesn't have a door which you can close, it's only a folding paravent. The room is big thou
We're very sorry if you did not enjoy your stay. Brooklyn is an active, lively city, with two and a half million people living in it. Our block does not have any ongoing construction, nor is it a major intersection. However it's obviously not as quiet as a remote cottage in a rural area.
There also have never been any complaints about the privacy that the guest room offers. Again, we apologize if you did not enjoy your stay.
We had a great stay in New York, Brooklyn is a really wonderful and interesting place for alternative peoples.
The apartment is very close to the subway, which brings you easy to manhattan. Sarah and Adam have a lovely apartment and they are very uncomplicated. They shared with us their home and stuff like friends...
The room is large and the king-size-bed very comfortable...
Thanks a lot at Adam and Sarah
La estadía fue perfecta. Adam y su esposa son muy amables y cálidos. La habitación es amplia, con iluminada, con temperatura adecuada, (website hidden) comparte el baño con la familia, pero esta limpio. La estación de metro esta cerca. El barrio parece seguro. El tiempo hasta Manhattan puede ser alrededor de 45 minutos. Recomiendo esta estadía. I will return to this home, Everything was perfect.
