Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Creator of Scrap Bar NYC and Goodbye Blue Monday in Bk, NY, I moved to Detroit six years ago and live here, on Farnsworth St, Detroit;
it's on the city's east side, close to Eastern Market, Hamtramck, Midtown and Downtown Detroit (six minutes in any direction!) and all major highways.

The space
The space is a private room with a door that locks from the inside ensuring privacy.
It's located in the middle of the apartment, behind the kitchen and bath, and has one window (see pic), available closet and storage space and a wicker-table for your stuff.
it measures approximately 11' x 8 1/2'
it also has a new addition - an old "left-handed desk"!
i know you can't wait to see that!!
yes, i also live here.
please bear in mind that this is a hundred-year-old, wood frame house with 60+-year old old, scarred linoleum tile flooring.
i ALWAYS keep this place vacuumed and mopped, but old is old, so what you see on these floors are permanent scars, NOT me being lazy!!

the best way to explain Farnsworth street is to look-up a story in the Detroit-Metro Times about Paul Weertz. It's a great story about the block where i live.

the first photo of the white house with the white toyota stationwagon in the story is my place (and my car)
