Hi, we are Miles and Ai living in Brooklyn, NYC.
We are hosting international students, tourists and professionals from all over the world.
We are teaming up for this ( it was firstly Ai's apartment) so this profile is being updated!
Our APT is right in front of Church ave F and G subway station, in a quiet, calm, safe area in Brooklyn.
This means you can easily get on the subway by crossing the street. Our trains can connect you to all train lines.
Take the F a few stops to see the Brooklyn Bridge and surrounding areas, including the promenade overlooking the river and Manhattan.
Take the G to Metropolitan Ave to see the epicenter of hipsters and the accompanying art and vintage clothing scene.
We can tell you where many other cool places to visit are and how to get there.
Our most popular room is flooded with natural light.
Our apartment is getting an overhaul with many paintings of mine (this is Miles speaking).
We speak multiple languages....Miles speaks Italian as well as English, and Ai speaks Japanese and English.
Hi, I'm Miles.
I am a very close friend of Ai, and we decided to team up on this Air bnb thing!
We have both been meeting lots of great people through it and through each other and want to continue the opportunities.
I am a very creative type. I am a painter. i have been doing graffiti art for 14 years, and abstract for about half that time. I share ideas, techniques and inspiration through youtube tutorials and private classes, some of which i am doing in our living room right here! You can find my tutorials by searching RESKEW. That is my graffiti tag (name). I am finding very deep purpose in exploring and discovering myself through painting, finding fulfillment and happiness through it, and i love to share the process with others. Well, same thing with the other arts i practice....
If you are interested in an art class/session, let me know!
I am also a dedicated and passionate martial artist, and also an actor.
I am into healthy foods and i believe in looking at health from a more eastern perspective. I practice Deeksha, an energy healing modality, and am generally into that kinda thing. I have done 2 Vipassana 10 day silent meditation courses.
I love classical music. I am going through a Bach harpsichord phase right now. I also love other music, of our era ;)
That being said, I'm a "down to earth" aka Realistic human. All these unconventional perspectives are not for me to push onto anyone, i keep it to myself for the most part unless someone is interested. So, if you're not, don't worry, you're not coming to some hippie village ;)
Hey, this is Ai :)
Originally this Airbnb thing is one of my passions, and I have been enjoying hosting people from all over the world for almost 2 years. However, lately I am so busy at work ( I work as an International Program Consultant at some college of oriental medicine and also I have my own international education business in the USA and Japan) , and I decided to team up with my close friend Miles from this year 2014.
Basically I am a business person working so hard everyday, but at the same time, I enjoy and appreciate artistic things too. As the matter of the fact, I started learning painting with Miles, who is a professional graffiti & abstract artist, and I really LOVE it :) I also love knitting. I like playing piano, enjoy singing too. And I LOVE wearing Japanese Kimono (the Japanese traditional dress for women).
We are looking forward to meeting you!
**We really appreciate your help in keeping this apartment neat and tidy during your stay by paying attention to some posted signs we have and cleaning up after yourself in common areas. A couple of us live here permanently, this is our home.
We care about cleanness (especially in the kitchen and the bathroom as common areas) and we would love to have guests who care about cleanness too.
If necessary, we can also talk on the phone before your arrival. After talking on the phone if we feel this won't work, we can cancel the booking anytime ( the payment will not be done until the next day from your planned check in day!)
Please feel free to talk to us if you have any concerns and we will do the same too.
Thank you!! Looking forward to hearing from you!
Rent a bicycle and see more of the city in person!
