A small room in a furnished railroad-style apartment in Greenpoint, Brooklyn near the strip of Polish bakeries, delis, and cafeterias on Nassau Ave. A few blocks to Nassau G train and 15 mins walk through park to Williamsburg L stop at Bedford Ave.

The space

It's a very clean apartment that gets lots of light, filled with plants in front and back windows, and a wall of books, and the atmosphere is very quiet and library-like.

Guest access

High-speed wireless

Interaction with guests

This is a space best for an independent person busy with their own private life. Because of railroad-style configuration, apartment is mainly offered to guests with full-time work that takes them out of apartment during regular hours on weekdays.

Strong preference is for guests with regular working hours to accommodate better sharing of this railroad-style apartment; if you will not be working outside of the apartment during regular business hours (9-5 or 10-6 M-F), this is not the best fit.

The guest room is used by the host for circulation to kitchen and bathroom only when guest is not present in the room.

It's a quiet space; please use headphones when the host is present.

A white towel hanging in the shower is provided for keeping the floor dry after showering.

Stephen's place is in prime location in Greenpoint! It's small, for sure, and he's not kidding about the railroad style of the apartment. But he's nonetheless very accommodating! Pro tip: Spend some quality time with his cat.

Stephen was a great host which made living in a railroad style apartment a good experience. The apartment was cute and very close to the metro stop. Greenpoint also has a lot of great restaurants and shops. Overall, it was a great experience.

Stephen's room is clean, comfy and close to the city with the G train couples block away. The neighborhood is nice with lots of great bakeries and restaurants. Stephen is a great host: nice, polite, quiet and willing to answer any questions. He also went extra miles to help me with my luggages shipment to my home town when I had already checked out for my vacation. Highly recommended!
