Upstairs you will find the three bedrooms and two full baths. Each bedroom has a new air conditioning unit to cool down the rooms for sleeping on hot summer nights. The master bedroom has a queen-size bed and private bath with terrific tiled shower, great for steaming up on a cold winter day! The other two bedrooms each have a twin size bed.

Interaction with guests
During your stay, you can contact my property manager Mary, she will be able to answer any questions you have. I'll provide her contact info when booking is confirmed.
Please remove your shoes upon entering the house. This helps to keep the floors and rugs in good shape, and who wants to where shoes inside anyway?
No pets, please. Thanks.
Feel free to open up all the windows on the first floor when you are home. The breeze through the living room and kitchen is delightful. When you leave, please be sure to close up and lock the windows. Please also draw the blinds in the living room before you go out.
In the summer months, when using the air conditioners, please do so with an energy-conserving mindset. The window units are just for cooling down the bedrooms, please close the bedroom doors when air conditioning units are in use.
In the winter months, when using the wood burning stoves, please be alert and very cautious. Be careful and tidy with the wood and ash. If you are not comfortable using a wood-burning stove, please do not use them.

I’ve lived in NYC since college (The New School for Social Research, class of 1994) and came here with one goal: to become a writer. To me this was the single city in America where literature and art were valued above all else. And it was a place full of unconventional real estate. Downtown Lofts, Lower East Side walkup—the way people lived was an extension of the creative existence. I lived on an old passenger ferryboat at the end of N. Moore Street in Tribeca. But eventually (like most every writer or artist) I migrated across the water and into Brooklyn. I also had kids. What I love about Brooklyn, and this part of it in particular, is that Bohemia and creativity are still alive, and there’s a Waldorf school right across the street.
