The second floor of a private home with your own bedroom, bath and living room (or extra bedroom). Fabulous location close to trains, bars, restaurants, stores, Prospect Park, and everything you need or want. Nice tree lined street in an upscale, family neighborhood. Very quiet and private. Plus you are invited to to share my Kitchen, TV room, and patio. Manhattan is just 20 minutes away.
Private floor of a brooklyn row house. Two rooms separated by original sliding doors. Front room has two day beds, a piano and seating area. The back room is a bedroom with a queenside bed, dresser and a writing desk. There is a closet and bathroom in the hallway. Very private. The house entrance is on the street level under the steps. The entrance is shared but you can go right upstairs if you want privacy as no one but my guests use the second floor. All guests are welcome to share my TV room, dining area, kitchen (refrigerator) and backyard patio. Very clean with plenty of blankets, pillows, and towels.. The bathroom is fully supplied with hairdryer, shampoo and conditioner so you may travel light. Just ask if there is something you need. There is also a 24 hour pharmacy just on the corner.
You may arrive anytime day or night, however I need to know your estimated time of arrival so I may have someone available to let you inside. It is a private home.
Check out is at 11:00 and check in is after 3:00. I will need time to clean the rooms between guests. Early arrival? NO Problem; come leave your bags, or stay and rest downstairs until the upstairs guests are out and the room is cleaned. The neighborhood of Park Slope is a safe, very diverse, upscale, family friendly neighborhood. I am close to Prospect Park, bars, restaurants, stores, and easy access to the F, R & G subway trains. Manhattan is a quick 20 minute ride to downtown or a 35 minute ride to times square.
From those trains you can get to other trains and go anywhere in the city. If you need help navigating just ask!
It is also possible to arrange babysitting if you wish to go out at night.
Prospect Park has many beautiful walking paths, playgrounds, a small zoo, historic Lefferts house, a carousel, Audobon Center, ice skating in the winter, roller skating in summer, and concerts on Friday nights in the summer.
A mile away (nice walk through the park) is the Brooklyn Museum, and the Brooklyn Botanic Garden.
This is my private home. I share my downstairs TV/living room, dining area, kitchen and backyard patio with my guests.
The 2nd floor bedroom, bath and living room are totally private.
Interaction with guests
I am happy to share my home and city with guests. Feel free to share a movie on TV or relax with a glass of wine in front of the fireplace on a cold night.
If you would like my opinion on places to go and what to see while in New York, I am more than happy to help. I have lived here for 40 years.
If privacy is what you need, you can go directly upstairs to the second floor with minimal interaction. You have my phone number if you need anything.
Other things to note
Families are welcome, but I do have antiques so I ask people to be repectful of the furniture. I have a pack and play crib if you bring a baby as well as a
feeding chair that attaches to a regular dinning chair.
Please respect the furniture and house. No smoking is allowed anywhere inside the house. Smoking outside on the patio or outside in front only. I ask that no food be eaten upstairs. Please eat downstairs in the kitchen or dining area. Put dishes in the sink or dishwasher. Use the coasters provided on the wooden furniture. Leave wet towels and clothes in the bathroom, or use the drying rack on the closet door. Please do not put wet articles on the wood furniture. There are extra towels in the bathroom and blankets if you need them. If there is something you don't see just ask.
I have worked, raised children, and lived in Park Slope Brooklyn for more than thirty years. I enjoy walking in Prospect Park and the Botanical Gardens, meeting my friends for coffee, going to the theater, museums or art galleries. I like to draw, listen to music, and work in my little garden as well as travel and meet new people.
