About this listing
My sunny and spacious Brooklyn studio in the fun and chill Ditmas Park neighborhood is available for May sublet. Lots of nearby restaurants, access to Prospect Park, loads of trees and a subway station just two minutes away. Feel free to message me with any questions about the place. I am only accepting reservations for stays between 2 and 4 weeks.
My Ditmas Park studio is available for short-term rentals. It's on the 4th floor of an elevator building literally two minutes away from the Q train at the Cortelyou Road stop, it's a 7 minute walk to the B express train at Newkirk, or an simple cross-the-platform transfer from the Q two stops away.
As long as two people can share the bed, the studio is a good size for 1-2 people, with an occasional visitor, too. The living area is approximately 12' x 30' (approximately 33.5 square meters). There's a nice couch that folds out, a queen-sized bed, table, desk and plenty of room to walk around, a clean bathroom, and a closet to hang your clothes, if needed. The kitchen is separate and has all necessary dishes and appliances. There's wireless internet, a TV + DVD player and a Roku box (sorry, no cable, but lots of access to television and movies streaming online via amazon or netflix if you want to subscribe or have your own login). The building is safe and quiet, the residents are primarily families. A laundromat is just a minute away on the corner of 16th and Cortelyou.
Ditmas Park is a great neighborhood. Diverse and residential, it has lots of trees and is close to Prospect Park. Cortelyou road is the main drag and is definitely one of the most up-an-coming neighborhoods in Brooklyn. There are a number of really great restaurants within 10 minute walk from the apartment. For self-catering there's the food co-op, two groceries, wine shops, a few bodegas on the same few blocks as well. The Q takes 10 minutes to get to Atlantic Avenue and exactly 25 minutes to get to Union Square. With the B you can be at West Fourth Street in under 30 minutes, that train does not run on the weekends or weeknights after 10:00pm, however.
For the size and location the studio is a great price. Please let me know if you have any questions.
You have access to a full kitchen, bathroom, books, TV and internet
Interaction with guests
I or a friend will meet you at the apartment. I like to check in occasionally to make sure that everything is OK. I'm always accessible by phone or email.
Ditmas Park is fantastic and more than just up-and-coming. There are a dozen really great restaurants just minutes away, a few fun bars and cafes as well as laundry and groceries right down the block. The Q and B trains run here and get you to other parts of Brooklyn and Manhattan very conveniently.
The Q train is literally two minutes from the front door. You can take that directly to central Manhattan or transfer to the B train to get other places within Manhattan. If you have a car, you can easily find parking nearby or even on the same block.
Getting here from the airport can be done with the subway or a taxi.
