The Space

Hello there! This is a great 2 bedroom apartment located at the intersection of so many popular neighborhoods in Brooklyn: Fort Greene, Cobble Hill, Brooklyn Heights, Park Slope, etc. It's on the 3rd floor of a two-apartment building. It's also just a couple blocks from the new Barclays Center so if you're here to see a show there, you'd be only a few minutes walk away.

The available bedroom is in the back of the apartment so street noise at night is at a minimum. There is a comfortable queen-sized bed in the room. The closet in the bedroom has plenty of space to stow luggage and has plenty of drawers for your stuff, too, along with shirt and pants hangers . In the summer time an A/C unit is in the room as well as a fan and there is heat in the winter (and if you're especially chilly, there is also an electric blanket).

The apartment has one bathroom so would be shared with me. The medicine cabinet above the sink is empty for guests to use. It's a bathroom so not much more can be said about it.

There is nice-sized living area with a separate dining space so the apartment doesn't feel cramped. Cable television and wireless internet are provided (but there is not a landline telephone). The kitchen has good counter space and plenty of cooking utensils, pots, and pans should you want to prepare food at home.

All bed sheets and towels are provided. There's an extra bike if you're inspired to ride to the Brooklyn Promenade, Prospect Park, the Brooklyn Bridge, or anywhere else.

Almost all subways are close by at the Atlantic/ Pacific station (B, D, N, R, Q, 2, 3, 4, 5, and the LIRR) and the Hoyt-Schermerhorn station is just a little bit farther with the A, C, and G trains. You can be in Manhattan in just a stop or two or take the G up to Williamsburg. BAM (Brooklyn Academy of Music) is just a couple blocks away for when you need a culture fix.

In addition to the great restaurants Brooklyn is known for, there's also a 24-hour diner across the street for your late nights, a laundromat on one corner, and a Walgreens at the other.

Definitely let me know if you have any other questions!

  • Great location, clean and simple!

  • Joshua's place was clean, well decorated and very comfortable to stay in. There's a full kitchen and shared bathroom. (Might I add his bath towels were all from Frette..oh la la) My boyfriend and I were out most of the time but it was nice to be able to find a reprieve from the busy city and relax at Joshua's apartment if necessary. For New York, the area was pretty quiet and the room had air conditioning. It's in the most convenient location - close to tons of subway lines and very easy to get to by subway from JFK. There's even a citibike station a few blocks away. I would absolutely recommend and stay at his apartment again.

  • We loved staying at Joshua's. The room was nice, and the apartment great. Joshua is a great guy, and help us a lot with direction, what to see and so on. I would highly recommend staying with Joshua, and I'm sure I'm gonna do it again some day!

  • Joshua was a very nice host. The apt was cosy and comfortable. Our room was clean and enough for two people. The place is well located in a nice area in Brooklyn, just three blocs from Atlantic Station, which connects to the main sightseeing in Manhattan in about 20 to 40 minutes. We would stay with Joshua when visiting NY again!!!

  • The room was comfortable and easy to move into, with space in the closet to hang clothes. Bonus points for being so close to major transit lines of the NYC subway & fun boutique Brooklyn shops. Thanks Joshua!

  • We had a fantastic week at Joshua's place. The apartment is perfectly located, close to 3 different subway stations (5min to Atlantic Ave, 6 min to Hoyt-Schermerhorn and 10 min to Bergen Street - Wall Street is a 10 min subway ride, Times Square about 25 min), close to lots of nice little restaurants (our favorites were the Konditori on Smith Street for Breakfirst - swedish café with grat bagels, Joya on Court Street - Thai food for very reasonable prices, Sottocasa on Atlantic Ave - very good pizzas and a heavenly fluffy tiramisu and MOB on Atlantic Ave just on the other site of the street - a great restaurant with vegan burgers and delicious desserts). Joshua is the best host ever. He is such a nice guy and was very helpfull with everything. The immediately felt like home at his place. Highly recommended!

Hi there. I've lived in NYC for over 12 years and I still am in love with it. When I'm not out and about in the city, I'm probably working on one of the projects I may have going on at the moment (recovering a chair, making a quilt, repotting a plant). And I like game nights.
