About this listing
A versatile space in the heart of Brooklyn. This is our home while we're in NYC, but we're frequent travelers so it's yours when we're elsewhere.
Our TWO ROOM APARTMENT is on the second floor of a four floor walk-up on a corner in Bedford-Stuyvesant.
We have up to FOUR FULL SIZE SLEEPING ARRANGEMENTS that can fit 1 or 2 people each.
Guests have the full apartment to themselves and are free to use whatever is available . Nothing is shared with anyone outside your party.
Interaction with Guests
You may meet us upon arrival and if you would like we would be happy to go out with you for a walk or a drink, otherwise you're on your own to enjoy our home and city. If you need anything from our end we're a simple message away.
Bedford-Stuyvesant, popularly known as Bed-Stuy (sounds like: Bed-Sty), is located in central Brooklyn and nudges up against ultra-hip Williamsburg. A historic neighborhood that boasts both pristine brownstones and unkempt storefronts, generations-old Bed-Stuy residents share their streets with newcomers and hip kids.
We're a block away from the nearest bike share station. The subway is typically near a station as well so you can grab a bike at your leisure. It's only $25 a week, and often offers promotions for free weekly trials I would be glad to connect you with.
We are about a 15 minute walk, 5 min bike ride or 8 minute bus ride to the subway. We have access to the C train at the Kingston-Throop stop, the JM trains at the Myrtle Ave stop and the G train at Bedford -Nostrand stop.
The C train goes all the way though Manhattan along 8th ave.
The J travels to the financial district. The M travels to 53rd st. along 6th ave.
The G travels across Brooklyn including Williamsburg & Park Slope.
Common Travel times (door to door)
30 min to Chinatown & Little Italy.
45 min to Times Square.
We are also along several bus lines: B38- Fort Greene's Restaurants in 20 mins, B52, Downtown Brooklyn Shopping in 30 min, B43, Greenpoint in 40 min, B44 Williamsburg in 30 min.
We are most easily and least expensively reached from JFK airport. At Terminal 5, there is a local bus, the B15 that takes about an hour but only cost 2.75, with the added bonus of stopping at my corner. If you arrive at LGA, I would advise taking a metered taxi - it typically costs around $30.
There is typically an ample amount of parking on the street around our apartment. Just be advised by the regulations dictated by the signs posted.
Other Things to Note
Last minute requests (fewer than 3 days notice) and single night arrangements are subject to higher per night prices at the host's discretion. Please make note of this when you are planning your arrangements.
To our guests visiting us during temperatures below 32F, as an unfortunate symptom of it being below freezing in the basement where the water heater is, the metal pipes expand as the steam rises causing an abrupt clank, This happens when the heat comes on at around 8am. I apologize for the inconvenience. Winter dates are preemptively reduced in price as a result of seasonal inconveniences.
All we ask is you treat the place like a home and remain discreet with our neighbors. If anyone questions you, you're our friends visiting from out of town. As you may know, New York has been hostile to its hosts as of late and we want to make sure we can continue to offer wonderful experiences to wonderful people.
Finally, if there are any significant mishaps, please report them to us immediately. Oh, and have fun! You're in the greatest city world after all!
