About this listing
Safest, wealthiest, prettiest, oldest, most convenient and historic neighborhood in Brooklyn! Historic Landmark building is only 5 minutes from Downtown Manhattan via subway! You will love my apartment and neighborhood as much as I do :).
Private bedroom is large and sunny, but the dining area, kitchen (average), and bathroom (small) are shared with tenant (myself) who has been living in NYC/Brooklyn for 20 years. I'm an excellent tour guide, so you have yourself a FREE concierge thrown in :).
My apartment comfortably fits 2 guests in addition to myself, the tenant.
My place is very charming, quaint, cozy, naturelike and has lots of character - along with my Lhasa-Poo Nilla. So, if you're looking for something less sterile, plain, sparse and modern, definitely stay here. The building is dated from 1900, and includes original detailed flooring and massively high ceilings. It also has a gorgeous view of the historical gothic cathedral St. Ann & the Holy Trinity Church, known for having America's first ever stained glass windows.
**Free breakfast, unlimited tea, and local magazines (Time Out NY, NY Mag, etc.)/newspapers (amNY, Metro, Village Voice, etc.) provided. Fresh linens, towels, and toiletries provided.**
Bathroom, dining area and kitchen are shared.
TV and Computer are off limits.
Interaction with Guests
When I'm working a lot, I'm not able to interact too much other than at check in, check out, or after work. I work a lot from home as well.
I will be present at the listing during your stay, but I am out often at work, meetings and events.
My dog, Nilla, however, will interact with you as often as she possibly can! ;)
Enjoy spectacular views of the NYC skyline from the Brooklyn Heights Promenade - only a 2 minute walk from the apartment. Just below the Promenade is the newly developed Brooklyn Bridge Park with lots of free and fun activities like concerts, movies, yoga and pilates classes, book readings, stargazing through telescopes, beer garden, wine bar, pool, art installations, etc.
This apartment is RIGHT in the heart of historical Brooklyn Heights - historical landmark Montague St! Norman Mailer, Truman Capote, Arthur Miller and Bob Dylan all lived here at one point, and now you can experience it too. Enjoy it's bars, restaurants, cafes, shops, conveniences, AND take a magical walk across the Brooklyn Bridge into Manhattan! Jay Z's Barclay Center is a subway or bus ride away, so buy tickets to your favorite music concerts before or during your booking!
BREAKING NEWS!: Hillary Clinton's Presidential Campaign Headquarters will be located in Brooklyn Heights - 2 blocks from my apartment! You may likely spot her dining at Montague Street during your stay. :)
Bob Dylan's "Tangled Up in Blue" Lyrics:
I lived with them on Montague Street
In a basement down the stairs
There was music in the cafes at night
And revolution in the air
(Tangled Up In Blue / Blood On The Tracks / 1975)

Other Things to Note
Make yourself at home!
No more than 2 paid guests allowed (no children and no pets), and please don't bring any outside guests without permission. Please no drunkenness, no alcohol allowed in the apartment, and non smoking guests only. Please be as quiet as possible when coming home late at night since I sleep on the couch in the living room. I work from home as well sometimes, so I'm generally up early. I have a dog that will eat ANY food that's left out, so please leave any food with you up high on the shelf in the bedroom. If you would like to read any books in the bookshelf, please ask first and return them before checking out. Feel free to request any additional amenities, but please be advised that unless they are listed above I may not have them.
