About This Listing
The Room: Beautiful and Comfortable. The bed is comfortable, the place is quiet, the room is beautiful, and everything is fine-hotel quality clean. You'll be provided with a full set of fluffy towels, hair-dryer, iron and full-size ironing board -- even a professional-grade steamer.
The City: Close and Convenient. One block from the C and G, two blocks from express trains at Atlantic Center, including the 2/3/4/5/B/D/N/R/Q and the LIRR, Fort Greene is the largest train hub in the city -- bigger than Grand Central or Penn Station. You can be hanging out downtown at Union Square in fifteen minutes, or visiting museums on the Upper West Side in thirty.
Neighborhood: Safe and Cool. Fort Greene is Brooklyn's best kept secret, cool but low-key. It's got some of the best bars and restaurants in the city, including one of the city's best-loved wine bars, a burger joint that serves beer shakes, award-winning red velvet cake, Blue Bottle Coffee, Ethiopian, Mexican, Cuban, Turkish, and Italian -- all within three blocks of the apartment. Local writers like Zadie Smith and Jennifer Egan read regularly at Greenlight Books down the block. The independent theater and cinema complex at BAM shows art flicks and first run films every night, and has recently put up theater productions starring Alan Rickman, Kevin Spacey, and Cate Blanchett. And our local park was designed by Frederic Law Olmstead, the great landscape architect who also designed Central Park.
Free wireless internet, full kitchen access, and abundant street parking.
Please email with a bit about yourself and your visit before booking.
Look forward to hearing from you!
I work from home, so the only house rule is that guests need to be out of the apartment between 9:00 to 5:00 on weekdays, so the best fit will be with people who are visiting the city for work or planning to be out and about during the days.
Carey was an excellent host who made the check-in process so easy. The room is clean and comfortable in a safe neighborhood. Thank you for a great stay Carey!
My Mum stayed with Carey for one night while in town visiting. The room was cute and clean, located in a quiet block close to local transportation. Carey was there to meet us and very friendly.
Carey was an excellent host! First of all, she was very responsive to my request to stay, and when I arrived, she was very flexible about giving me the keys, and very welcoming. Her apartment is both gorgeous and extremely well-situated--there are a number of good restaurants within easy walking distance, as well as several subway lines. I would thoroughly recommend booking a trip with her.
Carey greeted me and everything that was promissed was delivered...my favorite part of my experience was the bed was perfect, I had slept like an angel. the neighborhood was quiet and street parking was easy. Careys home was clean and welcoming, it even had a recliner sitting chair to read and relax. Thank you for a wonderful visit. Scott
Carey's apartment is fantastic. It was one of the coziest, most relaxing rooms that I've visited in NYC. The bed is extremely comfortable, and there is little outside noise. It really feels like a traditional B&B. The location is great, especially if you need to get to the LIRR (which I like to take to/ from JFK). I would stay here again.
Carey has a very warm and comfortable home. The rental room is private and spacious for NY. The room is well appointed with your own reading chair, queen bed, and closet. The apartment is just outside of downtown Brooklyn and walking distance from several subway stops.
About the Host, Carey
I've always loved welcoming people to my place, whether it's for a bowl of soup on a cold night, a cup of tea, or an overnight stay.
Looking forward to welcoming you.
