About this listing
Our place is a very convenient, clean and spacious apartment in a lovely neighborhood. ****NOTE: This summer it's priced very low because there is construction out the windows of living room and kitchen on weekdays, see below for more details.**** Our place would be ideal for someone who has a job or internship in the city during the daytimes.
Our place is a tidy and spacious one bedroom apartment on a beautiful tree lined street in one of the most convenient neighborhoods in Brooklyn. You get the whole apartment to yourselves (there are no other housemates or animals). We live in Boerum Hill, surrounded by many excellent restaurants, shops, markets and bars. *****NOTE: New York City is going through a lot of construction all over the city, including out the windows of our kitchen and living room! Due to this we have priced our place much lower than usual for week-night stays. The bedroom faces the other direction away from the construction and is generally very quiet, so our sleep has not been disturbed much from the construction. They work every day out our living room windows from 7am - 5 or 6pm. Our place has wood floors, high tin ceilings, wireless internet, a large eat-in kitchen, and air conditioning. Because of the construction in the living room, we keep one very powerful air-conditioner in the bedroom, and we don't have one in the living room.
Guests have access to the whole apartment.
Interaction with guests
We will be available via phone or email to assist with any situations while you are at our place. You will be greeted and introduced to the apartment by a friend of ours.
Our neighborhood is a lovely and desirable area.
Our neighborhood is the most convenient area in Brooklyn for getting to any part of the city. It is situated right in between Brooklyn Heights, Carroll Gardens, Fort Green, and Park Slope; a five minute walk will get you to any of these neighborhoods. It is also a nice walk to the Brooklyn Promenade, and the waterfront parks in Dumbo. We are close to the newly built Barclay's Center, home to the Brooklyn Nets and site of many concerts and sports events. Our neighborhood is clean, family friendly, and filled with activities. Our place is a few blocks away from A, B, C, D, 2, 3, 4, 5, F, G, N, R, & Q trains. A look at the map shows all the train stations near our place- because we are so close to so many subway lines, it is a very quick trip into almost anywhere you want to go in Manhattan, and because of train routing, it is actually sometimes more convenient than getting places from within Manhattan. It's usually possible to get anywhere you want to go without having to transfer subways and saves us a lot of money as we never have to take a taxi anywhere.
There is no smoking allowed in the apartment, but we have a great stoop out front where one is welcome to smoke. We prefer that guests not bring pets, but could consider a pet with an increased damage deposit. We appreciate if guests take out the trash and recycling upon leaving- there are bins outside in front of the building for each. More details about the house will be sent after a booking is made.

My partner and I are artists. We make performances and installations, and frequently travel around the country and abroad for our work. We love living in New York, and taking advantage of all that it has to offer (or as much as we can manage to see, since you could never see it all). We are happy to be able to offer our place to others while we are away, and we've enjoyed traveling with Aribnb in many exceptional locations as well.
