The Space

We are a dancer/choreographer couple delighted to offer our home, a glorious parlor level (2nd floor) brownstone apartment - high ceilings, stained glass windows, lots of lovely sunlight and a few short blocks to Prospect Park. Lefferts (formerly Prospect Lefferts Gardens) is a charming Brooklyn neighborhood rich with history, greenery, and diversity. You can expect a real Brooklyn experience at our apartment.

The bedroom’s queen sized bed comfortably fits one person, a couple, or two friends willing to bunk together. The bathroom has a claw-foot tub and an excellent showerhead. The dining and living rooms are spacious and warm with plenty of spaces to enjoy a meal or relax. We have a flat screen television, a Wii for watching Netlix (or playing games), and free Wifi.

The kitchen is fully-equipped with a dishwasher, gas stove and oven, typical kitchen amenities, and oodles of cook books. It's a delightful place to whip up something tasty. We also provide some breakfast goodies.

The apartment is quiet, private, and quite large by NYC standards. A sweet little neighbor cat sometimes visits, but does not live in the apartment and can be kept out if necessary.

The Neighborhood

The neighborhood is charming and safe. There's a yummy Caribbean bakery on the corner, a lovely wine shop one block away, grocery shops large and small, and a few great restaurants (take out and sit down) in the area. Prospect Park is 4 blocks away, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden and the Brooklyn Museum are a short bus ride away or an enjoyable stroll through the park, and a wonderful farmer's market takes place every (email hidden) Plaza. We'll leave you some fun things to check out during your stay. And read more about Lefferts Gardens on airbnb's website: https://www.airbnb.com/locations/new-york/lefferts-garden

Getting Around

We're off the Q express line and the B train, both of which are great trains. The Q gets you to lower Manhattan in 30 minutes or less and stops at most major stations. The B takes you along the lower east side and then up the west side.

House Rules

We place a lot of emphasis on the upkeep and quality of our home. We keep a clean, organized and warm apartment and expect our guests to enjoy and respect our space.

It's ideal for a couple, but can absolutely house two friends who don't mind sharing a bed or more if sleeping on a comfortable couch suits you. We also have a super comfy air mattress. Just ask! Oh, and we'd ask that you lovingly take care of our cherished plants.

We would love to host you!
