I spent a month in Melanie's apartment with my partner. We had such a brilliant time and would highly recommend it! The apartment itself has so much character, with really light, bright rooms, high ceilings, loads of space for 2 people and Melanie's beautiful paintings on the walls. There was also a full range of books and a fully equipped kitchen. Melanie was a great host and couldn't do enough to ensure we enjoyed our stay. We were both working from the apartment and so needed good internet and power connections for our laptops. Melanie was happy to oblige with making sure it met our needs. She also gave us great advice on where to go in the local area and lent us sledges when it snowed. The area itself is a fantastic introduction to Brooklyn. There are so many good restaurants, bars and cafes on Vanderbilt, Fulton and Dekalb that it is hard to know where to start. Our favourites were Benys for breakfast, Choice Market for lunch, Cafe Dosa for Indian, Smoking Monkey for drinks and oysters and Luanne's for vegan dining. I also spent a lot of time at the local yoga studio, DouYoga which I'd recommend as they had great teachers. So, don't miss the opportunity to stay in this amazing apartment. You won't regret it!

I am a painter and professor at Pratt and the School of the Arts, 92nd ST Y. I have lived in the Clinton Hill/Fort Greene area for the past 30 years with my husband and sons. We love living in New York and traveling abroad. My husband has been in the food and wine business for many years so our travels include dining, hiking and visiting art sites. One of my favorite places to visit is Japan.
