About This Listing
Corner apartment in a small brownstone building in the heart of Park Slope. The place faces west and gets tons of sunlight. Separate bedroom, living room, kitchen, and bathroom - with a nice fire escape outside the kitchen. The bedroom has a full bed and the living room has a 6ft long couch (and an air mattress if necessary). Comes with an Apple TV (with Netflix, etc), Sonos sound system, tons of cooking supplies, a huge library, and iPod speakers in the bathroom (for extra loud shower singing). On the second floor just steps from grocery stores, drop off laundry, Gorilla coffee, and tons of shops, bars and restaurants on 5th avenue. You can even catch a Brooklyn Nets game at the Barclays Center, which is just a few blocks away! 7 minute walk to the Atlantic Terminal which serves pretty much every subway -the BDNQR2345 trains - and the LIRR; 15 minutes to lower Manhattan; 20 minutes to Union Square.
**Update: some past AirBnBrs have mentioned that there is traffic noise. This is indeed the case. There is a white noise generator in the bedroom, but it is not absolutely silent for those who are sensitive to noise.**
**Update 2: one of the reviews mentions a lack of a/c. There is an a/c unit in the bedroom which generally cools the entire apartment.**
Please leave the apartment in the condition you found it. While I offer Netflix & AppleTV free with the apartment, if you buy a movie through iTunes, you will be charged. Any booze in the fridge is yours - feel free to help yourself. I'm happy to answer any questions you have during your stay - I'm always available by phone/email. Thanks so much!
Kitchen with fire escape - great for people watching. Comes fully stocked with pots, pans, microwave, toaster, etc.
Everything was great. It was close to the Subway and just a few steps from a couple of bars and restaurants. The apt was clean and sunny. We had a great experience, would definitely recommend.
Lovely apartment in a great location. I stayed at Kim's apartment for a few weeks as I was just moving to the city. She was out of town, but made me feel at home. The neighborhood has a lot of gems and is close to public transport. I couldn't have asked for more.
Kim is positively wonderful and incredibly helpful. Not only that, but the apartment is really an ideal place to stay in New York City. Not too far from Barclays Center for transportation into Manhattan, but still near quaint and less-busy restaurants and shops in Park Slope.
Kim was an excellent host. Very easy to communicate with; nice clean apartment in a great neighborhood! Would definitely stay again. Thanks Kim!
Kim's apartment was great! Good location.. Clean and safe. I would absolutely stay here again. Kim was flexible with arrival time and welcoming. Thanks Kim!
The location of this apartment is great. Very close to transportation into Manhattan and within blocks of all the highlights of Brooklyn. It's clean and sunny, no complaints there. Kim left us
That being said, come prepared with earplugs as it's on a busy street. Also, we happened to come on a peak heat weekend and this apartment just wasn't comfortable without A/C.
Kim was a responsive and helpful hostess, but her apartment would be better in the cooler months.
About the Host, Kim
I'm a news producer who has lived in Brooklyn for the past four years. I love spending weekends in the neighborhood, walking to Prospect Park, going to the Brooklyn Flea, cooking big dinners and people watching on 5th Avenue. My bookshelf is well-stocked with British fiction and an odd assortment of review copies. Can't wait to share the best-kept secrets of my neighborhood with visitors!
