Private room, near the Prospect Park, Botanical Garden, Brooklyn Museum, 2 express trains to Manhattan. And you get to hear some jazz on top of that!
I have an extra room available with one bed for 2 persons. There is AC, heat and internet.
Full access to the kitchen and its appliances (just buy your groceries, cook and wash your dishes). For coffee lovers I have a beautiful Italian espresso machine :-)
My apartment is on the second floor of a two floor building so it's very quiet. There is no cockroaches nor mice, which is kind of a luxury for New York City.
A grocery store is on one side of my door and the laundry is on the other side of the door.
I'm a musician, so there's gonna be some music around. No German underground punk rock though ;-) mostly Jazz. You may have a free in-house concert!
I have a second room that I rent, so there may or may not be a third person with us.
In the area: Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn Botanical Gardens, Prospect Park. Grocery store right next door, restaurants and bars. One minute walk to Prospect Park. 15 min to West 4th St. 20 min to Union Square. 25 min to Coney Island.
I am located one block away from the B/Q train Prospect Park Station.
I am a jazz musician from Paris, France, in my thirties. I keep my apt super clean. It is a non smoking apt by the way.
Feel free to contact me if you have any question.
Guest has access to kitchen and bathroom. You can use all appliances in the kitchen. Feel free to contact me if you have any question.
Obviously my room and my music studio is off limits.
I work at home, and I work a lot. During the day I practice, compose, teach, produce videos, make phone calls to books shows etc… that's my office, but it is totally separated from the shared space so unless you come to NYC for a zen retreat, that shouldn't be a problem :)
I really love the neighborhood. It is diverse, a true Brooklyn experience! A lot of artists live in this neighborhood, two buildings are even called the "Jazz Dorms" because it is filled with jazz musicians. Restaurants around the block, grocery stores open 24/7. And it's safe, no problem.
Super conveniently located, Q and B train, express trains, go to the west side of Manhattan with the B, go to the East side with the Q. 4 stops away from Manhattan, about a 20 min ride during which you will enjoy street dancers!
The other direction will take you to historic Coney Island that you saw in many movies!
I will gladly help you getting around, giving you info and tips as much as I can. I try to stay informed about cool things you can do but my forte is the Jazz community more than the hipster bars and the new night club in Tribeca. I will give you addresses you probably won't find in the tourist book :)

I had a perfect stay at Alex's apt. Everything was the way he had described. Nice & clean apt., nice room, well equipped kitchen, good location, close to subway.
Alex was very friendly and helpful making sure I was comfortable.
I can definitely recommend his apartment!!
PD: a plus.........EXCELLENT jazz music around!!! HE is Superb!
Thank you Alex.
Alex has been a great host. The apartment is close to everything: food, laundry, subway stop, etc. The room itself is private and there's plenty of room in the kitchen for your own food if you plan on staying longer. I've been here about 3 weeks and would definitely stay here again.
As a first time user of Airbnb this couldn't have been a better choice. Staying at Alex's place was a really nice experience. The room is exactly as shown in the picture and you have enough space to keep your belongings. The bed was very comfortable. What I like the best about the place was how close it was to the nearest metro station and from there, probably 30 mins downtown Manhattan. I used to come home late, but that was never a problem.the neighborhood is safe and the store next door closes really late and you can find basic food you need at a good price. Alex was very attentive to my question and provided good information about places to go and suggested different options. I really enjoyed Alex music at home and I could even go to see him perform live my last night in NY. I would definitelly recomend anybody to stay at Alex place when visiting New York.
Alex was very friendly, even when I arrived two hours later when I was due to because I got a little lost on the trains!
He was friendly, sociable and informative; a wonderful host!
Alex is a wonderfull host. Hè is relaxed, easygoing and very very friendly. I was one week in his really lovely appartement. My room had a double bed, very GOOD airco ( was needed). I could use the kitchen, refrigerator and tabel to eat & meet. He really made me feel at home. I enjoyed the gig we went to in Manhattan. We had a lovely evening. I hope to see him again in Holland or New York. I recommand anyone who likes a relaxed stay in NY to rent his rooms. THNX Alex.
Alex was a fantastic host! He stayed up until 3am in the morning when I my flight was delayed to let me in, and his apartment is tidy and conveniently close to a subway station that is a 20 min ride into manhattan. As a bonus, Alex plays beautiful music in the living room so if you love live music you'll love this place. Would highly recommend staying with Alex!
Alex was a warm and welcoming host, going out of his way to welcome me into his social circle. As a professional jazz musician he is also well connected with the local music scene, and can share an insider's view on local events.
The room was clean and comfortable, as was the rest of the house. It has very easy access to a subway line to Manhattan. Also the neighbourhood contains an amazing mix of affordable ethnic restaurants and groceries as well as the splendid Prospect Park. I highly recommend Alex's place to other travellers.
the place was clean and confortable, near to brooklin museum, 4 metro stops from manhattan, I had a good time at Alex's place. Alex is a very good host, he was very nice and every morning he prepared a good coffee and share it with us.
I'm writnig this review in behalf of my girlfriend Malu who was the actual guest, I reserved with my airbnb account for her.
Alex was a great host! His appartment is very well located, just a block away from the train which passes very regularly.
No problems and no stress! Thank you Alex for your hospitality!
