About this listing
My lovely, comfortable 2 BR w/garden has that true Brownstone Brooklyn feel! Great Prospect Heights location on pretty block close to Prospect Park, subways and the Brooklyn Museum. Charming landmarked neighborhood with many great restaurants nearby.
Our apt is a homey, comfortable, convenient place on the top floor of a charming Brooklyn brownstone. It has a new kitchen with adjoining dining room. There are 2 bedrooms; the first one is very quiet and sunny with a queen bed, overlooking neighbors' gardens and the second is a larger child's room with a single twin bed and a pull out single twin-sized trundle bed. The dining room and living room have an open floor plan. The dining area seats 6 at the table, and the bar seats 4. The living room has 2 sofas, cable tv with DVD player, and stereo. There is a private garden with table and chairs for outdoor meals, and a comfortable chaise lounge for reading and napping! It is a typical Brooklyn brownstone apartment with nice wood floors. There are ceiling fans and air-conditioners in the bedrooms to keep it cool.
No guests of guests are allowed to stay over-night. Excluding pre-approved guests that have been verified by me, no dinner parties, get togethers, or parties are allowed in my apartment.
Interaction with guests
I will not be present during your stay. My tenants will be in the building, but they will not be in your apt space in anyway. (They may be in the garden, but probably not).
I live on a lovely, tree-lined street in a landmarked district of residential brownstones. I'm 3 blocks from Prospect Park with free summer concerts, a zoo, a lake, biking, running and picnicking. I'm 2 blocks from the Brooklyn Museum and the Botanic Garden and the Central Brooklyn Library. Lots of nice restaurants, a farmer's market on Saturday, a playground for the kids, quiet, clean, safe, easy access to Manhatan...what else could you ask for?
I'm located 2 1/2 blocks from the Q and B subway lines, as well as the 2 and 3 lines, 15 minute subway ride into lower Manhattan (Chinatown), 30 minutes to Freedom Tower, 35 minutes to Times Sq/Theater District. Lots of bike paths around the area as well as ample car services who come within 5-7 minutes.
PLEASE WRITE TO ME BEFORE BOOKING!!!

Guests are not to invite non-Airbnb guests to my apartment. Guests of guests are not allowed to stay the night. Parties and dinner parties are not allowed. As the apartment is located on the 3rd floor and there are no window guards, children under age 11 are not permitted. (Sorry, it's the law.)
Hey there. I'm a free-lance film editor, a landlord, an adjunct professor and a world traveling single-mom. I've rented out my apt a few times before to neighbors who wanted a place for their visiting parents to stay, and I did a home exchange once with some lovely Parisians. Both times worked out great, so when a friend told me about Airbnb, it sounded right up my alley.
