The Space


Enjoy my whole private, clean, one-bedroom studio duplex in the connecting neighborhoods of the hip family orientated Park Slope, and the vibrant Gowanus Brooklyn. Upstairs has custom-made, full size Murphy bed, full bathroom, and kitchen with everything you need to cook. Downstairs has full, comfortable futon bed, 32" Samsung flat screen with Verizon Fios basic channels, Showtime and HBO. Wifi internet throughout. Because of stairs between sleeping/tv area and kitchen and bathroom, I would not recommend for someone with ambulatory issues.
Amenities include: coffee maker with coffee and assorted teas, toaster, blender, clean linen, sheets and towels.


Steps to F, G, R, and late night D train. 15 minutes to Manhattan or take F to the legendary Coney Island and get there in 25 minutes. Taxi service half block away.
Walk and shop at the new Whole Foods on 3rd ave and 3rd st. And check out the new restaurant row on 3rd ave. The hip 5th Avenue and famous 7th Ave. are right up the street with tons of great restaurants, shops, and cafes. Enjoy Sundays Farmers Market on 5th ave and 5th st. BAM (Brooklyn Academy of Music) Music venues, Barclay Stadium, beautiful Prospect Park, Brooklyn Museum and Library, Botanic Garden, and many other real cool things that Brooklyn has to offer are within walking distance.

Natural Home magazine named Park Slope one of America's ten best neighborhoods based on criteria including parks, green spaces and neighborhood gathering spaces; farmer’s markets and community gardens; public transportation and locally-owned businesses; and environmental and social policy. I invite you to come check it out and enjoy my place. Of course please feel free to contact me with any questions.

  • Joe was a very kind and communicative host, and the apartment was clean and comfortable. Right next to the F/G/R trains. Short walk to 5th ave shops, moderate walk to Prospect Park.

  • Stayed at Joes place 4 nights on a recent trip to NYC. Location was great, depending on what you're doing in NYC. Park Slope is a cool neighborhood, lots of great food and bars. The apartment is very close to the train. Apartment was clean and spacious, with good security, although the neighborhood seemed very friendly and safe. For the price, I would recommend this spot to anyone wanting to stay in Brooklyn.

  • We stayed for a month in Joe Cantor's apparent in Brooklyn. The apartment is located in a very convenient place for commuting every where , in Brooklyn and out side.
    The apartment was comfortable, clean and equipped with every thing needed for us.
    The availability of a bed in the upper section was very good and enabled us to move at will from the upper to the lower level.
    All in all we were very content with every thing.

  • The location was good. Very close to subways, restaurants, etc. Lodging was clean and comfortable. Because of stairs between sleeping/tv area and kitchen and bathroom, would not recommend for someone with ambulatory issues.

  • I stayed at Joe's place for 9 nights while I was working in DUMBO and it was great -- super easy access to the F-train, easy walk to grocery stores & restaurants, and a really nice space.

  • Cozy, clean and so pretty - Joe's place has a lot of character and charm! It's conveniently located to the F and G lines - literally 2 minutes walk. F takes you to Manhattan in 30 minutes and the G is the only line that goes across Brooklyn (happy days for those wanting to spend time in Williamsburg) I loved Joe's place, the neighborhood and Brooklyn in general. Don't be afraid to explore - there's a lot going on and from my personal experience it's very safe. Joe was so nice, friendly and quick to reply; he had a folder with all the information a visitor would need waiting for me on the kitchen table. As soon as I walked in, I knew I've made the right choice. Enjoy this gem and your stay in NYC! Thank you Joe!

  • Joe's apartment worked very well for us during our 5 night stay in Brooklyn. We found the location convenient and the neighborhood quiet and family-oriented. Joe was always quick to respond to our questions and was able to accommodate us at the last minute when our previous reservations fell through. We enjoyed breakfasts at The Bagel Pub & The Park Slope Diner - aka the Green Diner, and even went to Mass at the church on the corner. The Murphy bed was surprisingly comfortable and even though we didn't think we'd use it, the TV came in handy too.

  • Joe and his charming apartment were great. The neighborhood is fantastic and right in the heart of the best of what Brooklyn has on offer. I highly recommend this apartment for anyone visiting the area.

  • Joe was a great host. The place was exactly what we needed! Clean, homey, and plenty of space! Very close to Prospect Park and some great shops, bars, restaurants, etc. Over the trip my door key broke. Joe was very apologetic and literally came running to the front door with a new key. We all shared a laugh when I leveled with him that it actually broke while trying to open a beer in the park with said key. If you want to be in a good Brooklyn neighborhood, and have a nice place to sleep, and a very cool host, stay at Joe's!!

Hi my name is Joe, and I am a musician and photographer who loves Brooklyn. Brooklyn is great with its beauty, the historic neighborhood where my place is located. And the sweet music scene where I could walk to many venues and play music or watch great music. I also love food and in my neighborhood there are many, many great places to choose from within walking distance. I do travel a lot but want to let whoever is interested in renting my place know how special it is to me and hope they enjoy it as much as I do.
