About this listing
Private space with access to kitchen upstairs, and backyard if needed.
Great little space to use as a home base.
Private Basement studio in a three level house. There is a front yard with peach trees and roses. Brooklyn roses, tough but beautiful.

Private entrance. Private bathroom with shower and bathtub. WiFi.
Kitchen upstairs available for use. Backyard is shared space accessed through kitchen.
Street parking is possible. Basic TV channels, but who's watching TV in NYC!
Very laid back household, but also very caring. I can tell you anything you need to know about where to go or what to see.
Or you can have total privacy. We often do not see our guests after check-in.
The room is not the Ritz (no re-model or staging here!) but it's comfortable and makes a good base for exploring NYC. But Brooklyn especially.
