Bushwick is a celebrated artsy neighborhood that is quintessential New York City. Home of the popular HBO television series "Girls," Bushwick is one of the many areas where creative minds like to congregate. Its flair and bohemian nature is like no other area in Brooklyn.
The neighborhood is refreshingly multicultural, reminscenct of a real New York neighborhood, and located on a quiet block where families can been seen hanging out with their loved ones. As described in the Bushwick Starr Theatre "it's a diverse neighborhood that has evolved into a thriving artisitc community. It's current makeup is a mix of newcomer artists and long time locals, all working together to honor the neighborhhod's history, while building a better future."
It's absolutely full of creative types, intellects, musicians, freethinkers and dubbed by Vogue's Anna Wintour as one of the coolest neighborhoods in the world. It's raw fresh energy contributes to the rising popularity of the area.
Located midway between JFK or LGA Airport and Manhattan (30 minutes each way), just two short blocks from the J train at the Halsey stop, guests also have the option of taking the A, C, L, and Z trains all within a short walk.
We also highly recommend the Uber app, an inexpensive way to call a cab anytime, anywhere in NYC. There is also alternate side street parking for those who want to drive.
Bike rentals are also a popular option and there is a place close by.
Other things to note
The home is a duplex. The second floor is a SHARED space. You will have the entire first floor to yourself with your own entrance and bathrooms. We live upstairs on the second level of the duplex. Please note: the two spaces are connected by a spiral staircase. This makes both spaces semi-private and keeps the Airbnb legal by NY state law.
Rule #1: You are our guest and we are happy to be hosting you.
We are a safe space for all creeds, ethnicities, and beliefs. No discrimination, bigotry, or racism is allowed.
We live conscientiously and respectfully with each other, our neighbors, our city, and our planet. We recycle, compost, and practice energy conservation as much as possible. To that end we ask that you turn off the lights and air conditioning when not in use, put any leftovers (coffee grounds, banana peels, apple cores) in the compost bin provided, and use the cloth bags placed at the door when you go shopping to avoid plastic bags.
If you are a smoker, please go outside the front gate to do so. We keep our windows open a lot and it drifts inside otherwise. We really appreciate it.
Please remove shoes when at all possible, the streets can be quite dirty and this keeps the space as clean and sanitary as possible.
We try to keep "school hours". This means the upstairs kitchen is available between 9am - 10pm, and outside these hours we ask that everyone just be respectful of noise. During the weekends we extend these to midnight or 1 am. We are also open to discussing exceptions when needed.
This space does comfortably allow you to entertain a small group of friends and we welcome and encourage respectful gatherings as long as they are communicated to us beforehand and are within reasonable noise, size, and time limits.
Remember, you are awesome.
