The space

**ROOM UPDATED & ENHANCED IN FALL 2015** It is hard to beat this suite. There is now a sink in the kitchen-like area so you basically have your own tiny kitchen. Two burners, toaster & microwave ovens, blender, plate ware, etc. The shared bathroom is huge and has been completely renovated. It is gorgeous with claw foot tub, and other great details. The large room has an extremely comfortable queen sized bed. There are a table and two chairs for eating, planning your day or getting in some work, as well as a comfy armchair for relaxing. There is a high-definition television with basic channels along with Netflix and Hulu Plus streaming services.

The room faces south and is in the rear of the building so it has lovely light and is very quiet with a calming view of leafy trees.

Guest access

To get to the room you don't need to enter anyone's private space, so you can have as discreet and private a stay as you like (e.g. no issues with coming home very late.) It's like staying in a European style hotel but your room has a kitchen!

Interaction with guests

Your hosts have recently relocated to the San Francisco area. Your co-hosts are available if someone in person is needed.

The neighborhood

The room is in a lovely brownstone on a tree-lined block in historic Crown Heights just off the exciting commercial strip of Franklin Avenue that has a great selection of cafe's, restaurants and shops. Beautiful Eastern Parkway, the Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn Botanic Garden and Prospect Park are a walk away.

Fine dining options steps away include Mayfield (New American), Centanni (Italian), Barboncino (Pizza) and Pacifico (Brazilian). Quality casual dining choices include Rosco's (Pizza), Gueros (tacos), Chavella's (Mexican), Dutch Boy Burger (American), Sweet Basil (Thai) and newcomer The Crabby Shack (Seafood).

Grab coffee or baked treats on your way to the subway at quality mom and pop cafes including Little Zelda's, Lazy Ibis, Pulp & Bean and Brueklyn Coffee House.

Get beer or cocktails local bars The Crown Inn, Franklin Park or 739 Franklin Bar & Lounge.

Or....go to the newest, hippest beer & food hall that is 3 minutes away. "Berg'n" offers a quintessential new Brooklyn experience, curated selection of beers, coffee bar, interior outdoor patio and four of the hottest food vendors from the Smorgasburg food fair!

We spent more than a week in R.J.'s place. We loved the location a few steps away from a lively street (Franklin Av.) with many restaurant/bars/shops. Both ends of this street offer a connection to a subway station direct to Manhattan. The room was large, clean and nicely decorated with a small kitchen fully equipped. We were able to cook a few times during our stay. We also loved the TV including Netflix and the large amount of guides & plans available in the room. The shared bathroom was never a problem. R.J and his wife were welcoming and really helpfull anytime we needed them. The house was sometimes a little noisy but anyway I'll fully recommend this place to visit Brooklyn and Manhattan.

R J and Ellen were responsive to our messages. We enjoyed our stay at R J's place. The studio was spacious, and we liked the amenities that came with the place. Although the location is a bit far from LGA airport, it was doable via public transportation.

We stayed at RJ's place for more than a week. The place looks exactly like in the photos and the room is as comfortable as you can see! Dean Street 1066 is a good spot to stay for visiting both NYC and Brooklyn. It takes only 5 mins by foot and you are on the A/C subway line which can get you straight to Manhattan, if you wanna visit Williamsburg you just have to walk 10 min more and Prospect Park is just one train away from you!! So I would say this is a clever accommodation if you want to visit. After an exhausting day dinner is just 5 mins away because there are a lot of restaurants, from cheap to more intimate ones you can find what suits more to your needs. After dining you can drink a beer in one of the well packed pubs around or just go back to the room and rest without any noise from the street below. I would suggest this place 100%. TIP!

I loved my stay and highly recommend! The room is accurately reflected in the photographs, and actually it's a bit more like a small apartment (with a sink, mini-fridge, microwave and stovetop). I spent a day working in the room and enjoyed lots of natural light and great wi-fi. The bed is comfortable, and the house is within easy walking distance a several trains. I would definitely stay there again!

We (my wife and I) have very much enjoyed hosting over these last two years. We love New York and Brooklyn and can provide insider tips on getting the most from your visit. Our Crown Heights neighborhood has a lot to offer and we enjoy sharing our home and the joy that our guests have gotten from our local offerings. We are fairly new to Sullivan County, but we really enjoy exploring its amazing natural beauty, towns and festival sites in places like Narrowsburg, Calicoon and Bethel Woods.

We have young children so that keeps us busy. But we have a lot of fun taking advantage of all Brooklyn and Sullivan County have to offer - great parks, great people and great neighborhoods.

We have also travelled a few times with AirBnb and had great experiences with other hosts.
