About this listing
As good as it gets in Brooklyn! We are across the street from Atlantic Ave-Barclays Center stop with B,D,N,R,Q,2,3,4,5,LIRR trains. 24/7 doorman, courtyard, gym, washer/dryer in apt, fully equipped kitchen. Disclaimer: we have a house cat at home!
Just chilling, getting some sun, with my feet up on our balcony. Barclays Center is right ahead there. Life. Is. Good.
Gorgeous fully air-conditioned/heated 2 bedroom 2 full-bath apartment with a balcony. Elevator building with 24/7 doorman, gym and courtyard. Excellent location right across the street from Atlantic Terminal (B,D,N,R,Q,2,3,4,5,LIRR) and steps from Barclays Center, Atlantic Mall and BAM. We are one express stop from Manhattan and, while technically in Boreum Hill, we are at the cross-roads of other wonderful neighborhoods like Park Slope and Fort Greene. Carroll Gardens is also a 10-15min walk or short bus ride away, as are Prospect Park, Grand Army Plaza, Brooklyn Botanical Gardens, and the Brooklyn Public Library. We are also blessed with AMAZING restaurants (we love our food, so we can recommend great places to go) in the vicinity. And of course, this is NYC, so you can have food delivered for free from almost any restaurant nearby and groceries from corner stores as well (if you want to experience "real" NYC living)!

Interaction with Guests
I will be fully available via email/text. I am typically out of the country during your stay and will set up a video conference (Skype, Facetime, Google Hangouts) before your stay so that we can get to know each other, and I can show you around the apartment!
We are officially in Boerum Hill but across the street from Park Slope and Fort Greene, two of the most gorgeous neighborhoods in Brooklyn.
Extremely convenient, subway with multiple trains across the street from Atlantic Terminal/Barclays Stadium
Other Things to Note
Pet Disclaimer: We have a cat called Zion at home who will require minimal care: leaving a bowl of food for her daily and clearing out her litter box every 2-3 days (if you are not comfortable doing that, we are happy to hire a cat-sitter who can come in to clear out her box during your stay).
Hence, if you have an issue with a cat in the house or have allergies to cats, we are unfortunately not the right home for you.
NO other pets allowed in the apartment please!
NO smoking and NO pets (other than ours) please!!! And we respectfully request no shoes in the house as well.
Please make yourself at home, so please treat this like your own home!
