Interaction with Guests
We live in the same house upstairs, but this apartment is private with its own entrance, kitchen, bathroom. We generally leave our guests alone, but are always there if there is anything.
We live in a lovely landmark protected neighborhood. All the houses were built in the late 1800s and very well taken care of. It's a little like Sesame street, with stoops where people hang out and chat with one another.
a few blocks from the B and Q express trains. 2 stops to the Barclays Center, 4 stops to Chinatown, 5 to Union Square.
Other Things to Note
We are a photographer and painter, and may of our artwork pieces are on the walls in the apartment. We live upstairs with our 2 teenage kids and 2 labrador retrievers.
André and Sylvia are just the greatest. This was our second stay and we're starting to feel at home in their lovely place and wonderful neighborhood. In seeing the familiar sight upon arriving of their amazing works that adorn the walls, we felt like we were being greeted by old friends!
Sylvia was warm and welcoming and the space was well-appointed and everything we needed. It's a cute little bungalow tucked away from the street and under their family's main brownstone, so it was nice knowing that, if we needed anything, they were right upstairs! Loved the decor. Full gorgeous kitchen. Great location if you need to get to the city on the Q or the B -- only took like 15 minutes! Would stay here again.
Sylvia was a wonderful host.
Both she and her husband were very welcoming.
The apartment is nice and very close to the subway station and to Prospect Park.
However, since it is a downstairs apartment, the ceiling is very thin and you can hear all the footsteps from the above apartment.
Sylvia was very helpful in sending me advance directions and instructions for the apartment. I loved this place!! Big bright kitchen with all the amenities and a big farm table. So nice to be able to cook and host my children for dinner! Also, close to the subway that takes you directly into downtown Manhattan,and a wonderful Wholesome grocery. I felt very safe and private in the apartment.I contacted Sylvia a couple of times during the stay, and she was very prompt in answering and meeting me needs. Would love to stay during warmer weather and enjoy the sweet outdoor space.I will definitely stay here again!-K

Nice appartement, Andre and Sylvia are nice hosts. The Description is exact but one thing could be highlighted :
if you are sensitive to noise, know that the airflow heating system in the small bedroom is very noisy.
André agreed to let us leave our luggages in the appartement after checkout (so clean up could be done) and pick them 2-3 hours later
before going to the airport.
A cool apartment, conveniently located near amenities and a 7 minute walk to the metro. Walls are a little thin but with 5 stops to Union Station, we started and ended our days with ease.
