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 space

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.

Guest access

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 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. I also have a friend who lives nearby who can help with any urgent problems.

Spent a wonderful 5 nights in Lauren's spot in Fort Greene. The apartment's away from the street and was quiet and clean. Lauren left a list of recommendations for coffee shops/restaurants/shopping nearby. Would be happy to stay at Lauren's again.

Lauren's apartment is the most comfortable and cozy place in the world, it's more bigger than they looks in the pictures and Lauren is a great host, she left a guide with things to do in brooklyn, markets, restaurants and bars to visit. Fort Greene its a wonderful hood, very quiet and safe, with friendly neighbors, close to th(URL HIDDEN)lines, 20 minutes walking to the Brooklyn Bridge, and many more things that make it the best place if you plan to stay in NY. Thank's Lauren :)

Response from Lauren:
Amaechi couldn't have been a better guest. Easy to communicate with, respectful of my home and an all around lovely guy to meet. The apartment was left in great shape upon his departure. I would recommend him highly to other hosts!

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.

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!

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.
