The kitchen is on the smaller side, though there is plenty of counter space, a large refrigerator, a gas stove & table that seats two people for dining.

Interaction with Guests
We both work a lot - often very early mornings or late nights, so we're not home too much and are generally just relaxing when we are home.
We don't really have enough time to show everyone around, but we do love to hang out with our guests whenever possible and go out for dinner or drinks together.
We remain in close contact with some of our guests and hope to remain friends with everyone who stays with us!
Our neighborhood is called Gowanus. It's about a 10 minute walk to both Carroll Gardens and Park Slope, two neighborhoods that are filled with bars, restaurants, music venues and retail areas.
