About this listing
Enjoy a private room with a comfy double bed, papasan and ottoman and ample closet space.
The apartment has 9' ceilings, stainless steel appliances, lots of natural light and leather couches.
The kitchen is well-equipped. You'll find nonstick pots and pans, chef's, paring and bread knives, a toaster, blender, mixer, gas stove and dishwasher.
Not pictured (but since added) are blackout blinds, ensuring you get a good night's sleep, long after the sun has risen for the day and a window air conditioner to keep you cool on hot summer nights.
There's a terrific library, and you can read through (but not check out) everything from Tom Clancy novels to George Lakoff on language, Michael Pollan on food and Robin Williams on design.
You have a large (11x13), bright room to yourself.
You'll share the kitchen, living room and bathroom with a thirtysomething technologist and a friendly blue heeler.
Interaction with Guests
I'm happy to recommend restaurants, provide directions and chat as you unwind at the end of your day. If our schedules overlap, you're welcome to join me on a neighbourhood tour as we take my dog for a walk.
Boerum Hill is a terrific mix of long-time shops and modern restaurants. Whether you crave Thai, soul food or pizza and burgers, you'll find it here.
During the summer, enjoy time on the patio of one of a dozen great coffee shops or bars.
Wander over to Brooklyn Bridge Park for terrific views of the Manhattan skyline, a game of beach volleyball or some tasty ice cream.
We are an easy walk from the Atlantic Terminal, where you can check out the Target, rent a tux or hop on the Long Island Railroad.
You have terrific access to transit—I'm three minutes from the F and G trains, and seven minutes from the A, C, F, R, 2, 3, 4 and 5 trains. Cabs can be hailed on Smith, and car services typically arrive in five minutes or fewer.
Once on the subway, it's 10 minutes to lower Manhattan, and 30 minutes to midtown. It's also an easy bike ride over the Brooklyn or Manhattan Bridges.
