20 min away from Manahattan. Overlooking the Brooklyn Museum, next to Prospect Park and 4 subway stops from downtown NYC, our home is yours too. You’ll find avant-garde bars and restaurants round the corner, vibrant food markets a stroll away, and the subway to NYC over the road

The space

Wake up to the sound of the birds, something that’s not so common in NYC. Your room is light-filled and spacious, with high-ceilings and parquet floors. It has a queen bed, ample storage space (and in the summer months an AC). There are also a few touches to make you feel at home (paintings and the like).

Guest access

You will also have access to our living room (the usual deal: comfy couches, projector, well-equipped book shelves etc), kitchen (we cook a lot so it's pretty well-equipped) and bathrooms (shower, towels, hair-dryer etc). We have a washer and dryer in close proximity.

Interaction with guests

We love our neighborhood and the city. We enjoy eating, drinking, walking and exploring it every other day. It would be our pleasure to provide you with as much (or as little) information as you'd like. We could talk your ear off with brunch suggestions but also understand the excitement that comes with your own discoveries.

Other things to note

Our location, the peacefulness of the room and the speed with which you can get into NYC are a unique combination.

Greg and his wife Lucy are the most accommodating people I've ever come across. They're place is quiet and the bed and room are super comfortable and they are super flexible about any specific needs about whatever. Their neighborhood is nice and has whatever you might need during your stay. Franklin st. Subway is just across the street. I really don't have any complaints and I was there for 6 weeks. They were always checking on me and making sure I was in good shape.

My daughter and I stayed at Greg & Lucy's for two weeks, and loved every minute of our stay. Greg & Lucy are wonderful hosts--welcoming from the start and extremely knowledgeable about the area. Their apartment is comfortable, clean, and lovely. The neighborhood is great: diverse and friendly, with plenty of interesting things to do and good things to eat. We'll definitely be coming back!

Wow, what a wonderful experience. Greg and Lucy are probably the best hosts I ever had while using Airbnb. They were super helpful with recommendations and general knowledge about the city. Their place was very charming, clean, and inviting. I would most definitely stay with Greg and Lucy if I happen to be in Brooklyn again.

We had a wonderful time in NYC, that was very much improved by having an excellent place to stay and a great set of recommendations from Greg. The room was amazing and very well set up as was the coffee that Greg was kind enough to make for us. We're very grateful for such an opportunity to stay so close to everything and truly experience a glimpse of NYC living

Greg and Lucy's place is absolutely great. The room is big and has a super comfortable king bed. So perfect to catch some sleep after a long day in NYC. Our great hosts were super friendly and can give you a lot of advise and tips if you need. The appartement is in a really nice neighbourhood, and has easy access to Manhattan!! The appartement is super charming and we will go back to them for sure if we visit NYC again. What was also really cool is that they were really flexible. As our flight was at late evening and we wanted to spend the day in Manhattan we could leave our suitcase at their place and pick it up late. So ones again, thanks again Greg and Lucy for your warm welcome!

Greg and Lucy were superb hosts and their apartment was really great. Bright, clean, quiet and spacious and perfectly located for speedy access to Manhattan and just opposite Prospect Park so excellent for early morning walks and runs. Ill definitely be back and would recommend this to anyone visiting New York. Lucy's homemade bircher porridge is a winner too :-)

Greg User ProfileGreg is a superhost.

Hey there! I consider myself a happy, energetic and interested person. I love traveling and hearing about travel stories. I have been living in New York for almost 10 years and feel like I have a pretty good sense of the city. That said, as any New Yorker will tell you, it’s a place that is constantly changing.

I adore this city and enjoy finding all the interesting little places that someone missed. I am passionate about food and I cook and search for new restaurants and dishes with the same vigor. I guess this all goes to say that I can definitely give recommendations on places to eat, cool places around the neighborhood and the city.

I love life and travel at every opportunity I get. So far my adventures have taken me to Mexico, Russia, Mongolia, Southern California, Peru, Colombia, Ecuador, Thailand, India ….. you get the drift. I look forward to hearing your travel tales too.
