The Space

My high ceiling hardwood floor apartment is very sunny and safe. Only one other family downstairs, gated door, locked windows on fire escape. Full bathtub with shower, 2 flights of stairs, TV and Internet.

Very close to the G train which connects to the L to Manhattan, or the A/C to Manhattan. There are tons of cute cafes and bars in the area. 3 blocks from Pratt Institute, about 10 blocks from the lovely Fort Greene Park. The B38 bus stops right outside and goes into Forte Greene and downtown Brooklyn. Other buses, including the G train, go straight to Williamsburg, which is endless fun! Basically my place is in the middle of all the best Brooklyn neighborhoods!

I have 2 cats, very friendly, but will leave you alone if you'd like (they are smart). I have a full bed in my room and a full sized futon. I have one friendly female roommate, and we will be in and out. We would prefer female guests only, but couples are welcome. We prefer shorter stays, but we can negotiate. I will provide sheets, towels, and a hair dryer. Come enjoy NYC!

  • Lauren was really helpful! We had a wonderful stay in the house. Lauren and her roommate welcomed us to use the kitchen, there were nights we had in and would watch tv etc. It was really nice. I will highly recommend anyone else in brooklyn or the New York City area to stay here.

  • Recommending a stay at Lauren's place is the first thing I would tell someone going to NYC, especially for their first visit! Lauren is a very friendly and personable lady, and a gracious hostess with two lovely cats, and a very nice neighbor! I hope to stay with her again, her apartment is very comfortable, and clean, and it's proximity to the subway couldn't be better. On Lauren's suggestion, I went to the Colador Cafe and The Black Swan and both had really good food and excellent service. Lauren was very accommodating, and very, very knowledgeable & helpful with directions and instructions on which trains to take to different parts of town. I hope to stay at her place again, I found it to be a good base for travelling uptown, as I did quite a bit.

  • Very nice and clean place to stay in NY, Brooklyn. Easy commuting to Manhattan, 2 blocks to the nearest subway station, and in 15-30mins after leaving the apartment you're downtown. There's some free parking slots around the apartment in nearby streets, usually easy to find one, but might sometimes take a while. Lauren and her roommate where nice company, thanks girls and have a nice rest of the year!

  • Lauren's place was exactly as described. She was very flexible with our check-in/out. I had a last-minute conflict with the check-in, so my husband met with Lauren. She was gracious and helpful with information about the house, room, and area. She even left us yummy past ties for breakfast. The room was comfortable, and the mattress very good. The air conditioner worked wonderfully. I highly recommend staying with her. I will certainly stay again if given the opportunity.

  • Lauren was a great host! Check in and check out were both flexible which made it extremely easy to navigate time. The room was clean and quite spacious and the a/c was pretty strong. The bathroom was also very clean. We stayed one night and will definitely be back next time we're in NYC.
    The apartment is located close to the subway and the streets have free parking which was easy to find.
    All in all it was a great place to stay.

  • Lauren was incredibly welcoming and provided everything I needed for a comfortable stay in NYC. The apartment is clean and well-kept and the bed SUPER comfy. Will definitely stay there again when I breeze through Brooklyn again.

  • Lauren bailed me out at the last minute when I made a scheduling error and needed a place at the last moment. She is open, sunny and helpful and her two lovely cats made me feel right at home..

  • Fantastic comfortable bed to sleep in, after walking around NY. Easy access to subway and route into Times Square. Great coffee shop and deli around the corner. Safe apartment. 2 cute cats that are a little shy at the begining. Lauren is a charming helpful host.

  • Lauren is a gorgeous host. She's very accommodating, generous and helpful. Her home is clean, clear and welcoming. It's well situated to the subway and great places to dine out nearby. Oh, and her two cats are too cute!!!

I am very easy going and love hosting company. Shorter periods of time are appreciated. I have a roommate and 2 cats, but keep my place very clean. You can choose from my room or the futon, I will sleep wherever!
