This is a 1-bdrm apt in a brownstone neighborhood of Brooklyn, convenient to Manhattan but why ever leave Fort Greene?
The apartment is on the 3rd floor in a beautiful, historic brownstone building. The apartment is in the back of the building surrounded by yards so it's very quiet and bucolic. You'll wake up to the birds singing! Each room features plenty of natural light.
The kitchen is fully equipped, including a french press for coffee and always a lot of ground coffee on-hand.
The living room features a large entertainment center with a big, flat-screen TV with cable, Apple TV, Bluray DVD player (hooked up to Pandora and Netflix), and a record player. I have dozens of old records and books on the shelves that you're welcome to peruse.
The bedroom has a queen-sized bed.
During warm months, I have A/C units in the bedroom and living room, and in the winter there's radiator heat in each room, plus I have some space heaters if the radiator isn't warming you up enough.
Interaction with Guests
I won't be in town during your stay but happy to answer questions via phone or email.
Fort Greene, Brooklyn is a hip yet down-to-earth neighborhood. Within a 10 minute or less walk, there are a number of great coffee shops, restaurants, bars, shops and entertainment options.
The apartment is also one block from Fort Greene Park, which hosts a great Saturday farmers market. And the much talked-about Brooklyn Flea is also on Saturdays just a few short blocks away! BAM, which hosts film screenings and other arts events, is also a short walk away, and so is the new Barclay Center.
I'm walking distance to almost all subway lines (C and G are closest); B, Q & R are a 10 minute walk, as is the Atlantic Terminal which has the LIRR plus the B,D,R,M,Q,N,2,3,4,5 lines. If you drive, parking is pretty easy on my block. Fort Greene is a safe neighborhood with lots of families and lots of diversity.

Lauren's apartment was comfortable and clean. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. Would definitely consider staying there again on our next trip to New York.
Lauren's apartment is great and she was very nice and easy to communicate with to arrange key pickup, etc. The apartment is good sized, very quiet, super clean and has a view of a lot of trees. The neighborhood is wonderful, full of restaurants and cafes. Many subway lines converge in the area so it's easy to get anywhere in Manhattan without transferring on the subway. I would love to come back and stay here again!
Notre expérience dans l'appartement de Lauren a été très positif. Si vous voulez visiter Manatthan et Brooklyn, la localisation est très bien, le quartier est calme. L'appartement est propre est assez grand pour un couple. Lauren et Franck ont été formidable avec nous. Ils répondaient vite à nos questions et nous ont donné des conseils par rapport au transport. Adresse qu'on recommande.
Lauren is very kind and helpful throughout. It is a cozy apartment and the neighborhood is very nice. Thank you Lauren, it's a pleasure to meet you and to stay at your lovely space.
What a great weekend! Lauren's apartment is located in one of my new favorite areas of Brooklyn and is a real treat to return to after a big day out around town. As many have already said, Fort Greene is an extremely quiet area with many shops, restaurants, wine bars, coffee shops and grocery stores only a very short walk away. If you are fortunate enough to be around when the BAM has a show going on, her place is also very nearby. Despite the low key nature of the area, catching a cab & walking to the train both proved to extremely convenient as well. Lauren was a wonderfully accommodating and responsive host who has an amazing book and record collection for when you need to decompress back home. Will definitely be looking to stay here again with our next trip to the city!
Lauren's place was great! It was exactly as it showed on the website. Lauren was quick to answer any questions we had via email before our arrival and pickup of keys was convenient and easy. The place was clean, comfortable, and in an awesome neighborhood. Lauren left several recommendations for things to do and see in the area and all of them that we tried were excellent!
I would highly recommend Lauren's place to anyone looking for a great stay in Brooklyn. Close to subway, parks, great restaurants and coffee shops. This was our first time using AirBnB and I hope all are this excellent!
Lauren's apartment was wonderful. It is a spacious, unpretentiously charming one-bedroom, equipped with everything one would need in a New York apartment. It is comfortably furnished and immaculately clean. It was quiet at night, perfectly safe, and close to many subway lines. In fact, the neighborhood Lauren live in, Ft. Greene, Brooklyn, is absolutely wonderful. It has become my favorite corner of New York. Lauren was both helpful and responsive to my email questions. All in all, a wonderful stay and a highly recommended place to stay in.
I am an independent documentary film producer who lives in New York City. I travel a lot on my projects.
I love to travel, I play the banjo and I ride my bike everywhere.
I'm both an avid AirBnb host and guest, and I believe that someone's home should be treated with respect.
