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.

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.
