About this listing
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. Air conditioners in the living room and bedroom.
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 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.
No smoking. No pets.
Please water my plants. The bike is not available for your use, I'm sorry to say.

Lauren was an excellent host - communicative, informative, friendly and welcoming. Her place was perfect for my needs, really clean & totally comfortable. The neighborhood is great, close to the park, restaurants, transpo, etc... Definitely recommended!!
Great apt in a super neighbourhood! Lauren was very accommodating and swift at communicating. Apt itself is facing Inside so has a nice tree top view and is so serene. I highly recommend Laurens apt.
Very nice apartment. Big space and clean. Lauren is super nice to work with and very considering.
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.
