About this listing
This spacious one bedroom apartment is the best of Brooklyn: quiet with lush green views out the front and back, nestled up against a historic landmark cemetary, and within a few minutes walk of an array of great restaurants and bars and the subway.
This is a large one bedroom apartment which takes up the entire second floor of our private house. The apartment has a private entrance, a full bathroom, eat-in kitchen, living room, and big bedroom with a king size bed. One of the couches in the living room can be converted into a full size bed to accommodate another adult couple or kids. The apartment is sunny and quiet with leafy great views out the front and back windows, along with two skylights and chirping birds. There is internet access and a TV with basic service.
Guests will have access to the entirety of the second floor - it's own one bedroom apartment.
Interaction with guests
We don't interact much with guests but do live in the apartment directly below the rental and share the same front door and front hall, so we often see people in passing and are very happy to help out with recommendations about the neighborhood, transit, etc.
Greenwood Heights is a sweet unpretentious neighborhood with amazing views of the harbor, Statue of Liberty, and the historic Greenwood Cemetery, site of the Battle of Brooklyn in the Revolutionary War, and National Historical Landmark, and just a beautiful place to take a walk among old growth trees. There is an ever-growing scene of small independent restaurants and bars and it is a 5 minute walk to some of our favorite local spots: a sweet little coffee shop, an upscale farm-to-table restaurant, and a great gourmet Italian pizza place, and bar with an award-winning backyard garden.
It is a 10 min walk to the R train at Prospect St or the F train at 15th St. Parking is readily available on the street.
Children under 15 stay free.

We both grew up in the Midwest (the Twin Cities and Southwestern Michigan, respectively). We've been in New York for about 20 years and are raising our daughters here in Brooklyn. We renovated the upstairs apartment of our house so our parents could come hang out with us, and their granddaughters (that's who they're most interested in). When they're not here, we rent out the place - mostly to other grandparents who are visiting the Park Slope area, but we're open to whoever is interested.
We're both psychologists, both pretty laid back. We're happy to help people navigate the area and just generally get settled in.
