The Space

I have a nice size room, completely independant and quiet (garden side). There is a big built-in dresser with mirror. There is one bed for 2 persons, and a third person can sleep on an airbed. There is AC, heat and internet.

Full access to the kitchen and its appliances (just buy your groceries, cook and wash your dishes). For coffee lovers I have a beautiful Italian espresso machine :-)

My apartment is on the second floor of a two floor building so it's very quiet. There is no cockroaches nor mice, which is kind of a luxury for New York City.

A grocery store is on one side of my door and the laundry is on the other side of the door.

I'm a musician, so there's gonna be some music around. No German underground punk rock though ;-) mostly Jazz. You may have a free in-house concert!

In the area: Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn Botanical Gardens, Prospect Park. Grocery store right next door, restaurants and bars. One minute walk to Prospect Park. 15 min to West 4th St. 20 min to Union Square. 25 min to Coney Island.

I am located one block away from the B/Q train Prospect Park Station.

About me:
I am a jazz musician from Paris, France, in my thirties. I keep my apt super clean. It is a non smoking apt by the way.

Feel free to contact me if you have any question.

Guest Access

Guest has access to kitchen and bathroom. You can use all appliances in the kitchen. Feel free to contact me if you have any question.
Obviously my room and my music studio is off limits.

Interaction with Guests

I work at home, and I work a lot. During the day I practice, compose, teach, produce videos, make phone calls to books shows etc… that's my office, but it is totally separated from the shared space so unless you come to NYC for a zen retreat, that shouldn't be a problem :)

The Neighborhood

I really love the neighborhood. It is diverse, a true Brooklyn experience! A lot of artists live in this neighborhood, two buildings are even called the "Jazz Dorms" because it is filled with jazz musicians. Restaurants around the block, grocery stores open 24/7. There is a gym one block away from my house, open 24/7.

Getting Around

Super conveniently located, Q and B train, express trains, go to the west side of Manhattan with the B, go to the East side with the Q. 4 stops away from Manhattan, about a 20 min ride during which you will enjoy street dancers!
The other direction will take you to historic Coney Island that you saw in many movies!

Other Things to Note

I will gladly help you getting around, giving you info and tips as much as I can. I try to stay informed about cool things you can do but my forte is the Jazz community more than the hipster bars and the new night club in Tribeca. I will give you addresses you probably won't find in the tourist book :)
