The Neighborhood

LEFFERTS GARDEN
Lefferts Garden is Brooklyn’s best kept secret! Up and coming, safe, diverse neighborhood; interesting blend of artists and musicians with family friendly Caribbean community. It gives you a taste of real NY. Our main attraction is the Prospect Park (Make sure to check out the farmer’s market every Saturday). The apartment building is located right in front of the park. So enjoy morning strolls! We have a brand new Ice Skating Rink in the park if you are visiting during the winter months. Brooklyn Museum, Botanical Gardens, Prospect Park Zoo and Brooklyn Public Library are all within walking distance. Walk one block towards Flatbush Ave, you will find everything you need from grocery stores, drugstores, laundromat, liquor shops, restaurants, bars and cafes!

Getting around

ACCESS:
Easy access to Manhattan. Our apartment is only a block away (less than 1 minute walk) from the metro line ( Q, B, S. 15-20 minutes to Downtown, 30 minutes to Times Square.) Or stay local, just 5 minute Subway ride to the Barclay Center, Park Slope, and downtown Brooklyn. Williamsburg / Greenpoint? No problem! B41 & B43 Buses leave right around the corner! You can simply take the Q train to the last stop, it will take you to the famous Coney Island in 20 minutes. If you drive, finding a parking is surprisingly easy. A gas station is a few block away.

  • I stayed one week in New York in the Iko's House, I really recommend that place, because is safe, clean, confortable and near subway. Everything that I needed they helped me, it was really amazing. When I go back to New York again, I would like to stay there.

  • Iko, was an absolute pleasure to stay with. Very nice, easy to get a long with and helpful when trying to figure out NY.

    March 2014
  • My wife and I spent two lovely nights at Iko's apartment. We didn't want for anything. Iko is very sweet. We instantly felt at home. Prospect Park is gorgeous even in winter and is a stones throw away. The subway, a nice deli and market are close by. Next time we come to the city we know where we will stay. At Iko's.

  • The positive reviews, the descriptions of the room and apartment, and photos were all 100% accurate. We couldn't have asked for a better first experience with Airbnb. Iko was a wonderful, laid-back, and helpful host. It was easy to find her place by simply following the detailed descriptions she gave us. Also, although we arrived (email hidden) delay, she made us feel welcome. My friend and I both felt comfortable at the place. The place itself is clean and cute, just as you see in the photos and as other reviewers have described. I'd recommend her place to anyone and would even love to stay there again. -- Thank you, Iko!

    December 2013
  • Nice little Apartment. The room was big enough and nicly done up. No problems with check-in and check-out. Iko is a very friendly and helpful person. The location of the Apartment is very good, safe area and just a few steps to the Metro station where you can drive driectly to Times Square (20 - 30 min). From this Metro Station it is also easy to get to the JFK-Airport (~ 1 hour). Close to the Apartment and the Metro is a small supermarket with products of a little higher quality than one get usual. I can highly recommend this Aprtment.
