About this listing
Welcome to our oasis! Morgantown is the nickname for the artsy area of Bushwick, Brooklyn that we reside in. We offer a cozy place to stay and full breakfast daily with easy access to two major subway lines, while you explore our exciting city .
The bedroom has a full/double sized bed, some shelves, a futon and a closet. Ideal for a couple, but the futon couch converts into an extra single sleeper for a third person. It also has it's own thermostat controlled heat and an air conditioning unit (when it's warm).
You are welcome to use our kitchen at your pleasure. The bathroom is semi-private, our friend and co-worker Tony stays with us on the weekends, and we sometimes rent his room out to one air bnb guest during the week while he is away, we have a separate bathroom downstairs along with our bedroom. The shower is clean and has really good hot water. We will provide linens/soap/shampoo/towels/toothbrushes.
And yes we have Wifi.
Our Nespresso machine makes great cappuccinos, lattes, lungos and espressos which we make every morning along with breakfast. It's easy enough for anybody to use so feel free to help yourself at any time.
Interaction with Guests
My name is Alec, my fiancé is Laura, we will be your hosts, and we are proud to have earned the Superhost status from Air BnB for the past 4 quarters in a row! Laura loves to cook breakfast, which we will provide for you every morning in our dining room/kitchen. We love music so usually we play a good record on our vintage record player during breakfast.
Our little dog is a Wolf-Spitz/Corgi mix named Fozzio "Fozzy" Bear-Wolf, and he is awesome. Never met anybody he didn't like. He's adorable. Looks like a wolf puppy, but will not get any bigger. A forever pup.
Morgantown gets the nickname because it is the area surrounding the Morgan Ave L Train stop, and the L Train is one of the best lines in the city. Art galleries, music venues, yoga studios and great restaurants and bars such as famed Roberta's Pizza are all within easy walking distance. Morgantown is the heart of the thriving Bushwick, Brooklyn art scene.
We live about 5 blocks from the Morgan Ave L train. The L train goes direct to Union Square and will bring you there in 15 minutes. It is one of the fastest and most frequently running subways in NYC, and it connects to almost all of the other lines. We also live close to the J/M/Z line so this is a very convenient place to be and have easy access to all parts of the city.
Other Things to Note
I bartend and manage a bar/venue nearby called Pine Box Rock Shop, Laura also bartends there a few days, and is in the process of opening up a ladies lingerie and sneaker store. I'm also in a funk/rock/soul band based in Bushwick, Brooklyn called I AM THE THIRD. We know and love the area very well.
The apartment is big enough that nobody gets disturbed with the comings and goings at any time of day or night, so there's no curfew, or any weird rules like that. Just be respectful, and make yourself at home. If you are open-minded, caring, friendly, fun and cool, and want to be around similar people in a nice relaxing environment, come stay with us!
Your Bedroom, with a futon that converts into an additional bed for one, and the door to the backyard if you're a smoker.
