“Northern hospitality”

Me and my wife, both natives to the South, visited on a weekend trip to New York, Family and friends were quick to warn us about the differences between the South and the North, but Larry — the owner — was incredibly hospitable when we rented out this apartment. We stayed for five nights and enjoyed it immensely. We didn't use the room for much other than just sleeping when we were done walking throughout Manhattan. The room, as you would expect for Brooklyn, was small with a barely enough space for the bed and the TV and a small desk. So if you're the kind of person who needs a lot of space, you might have to fork out some more cash for a hotel. We didn't mind the small room at all. There's also an upstairs kitchen and two bathrooms — all are shared with other residents. That could also be a turn off to some people, but it was never an issue with us.

Troy Avenue is in the Flatbush area, which is one of those neighborhoods that has good streets and rough streets. The one setback was that the subway wasn't really ideally located. Larry was good to give us the "safe" directions. We had no problems with anyone messing with us, although the Brooklyn crime map showed a few rough things in the neighborhood, mostly after midnight. We parked closer to the subway in northern Brooklyn when we knew we were going to come in very late and just drove to the apartment.

Be aware of where you park though. We received two parking tickets because the hours you can park off the street vary. Look at the signs and make sure you are not near fire hydrants.

Overall, this was a great fit for us. A larger family or someone who needs space and luxury might want to look elsewhere. But if you want adventure and you want someone to stay that's cheap and convenient, this is a great option.

Thanks, Larry.

Thank you Christopher. We do have large rooms that are more suited for 4 guests. The next time you visit I will have a large room waiting for you. If you took the Glennwood Road B6 bus, it will take you to the subway in 4 minutes. I have had many guests stayed with me over the year and they traveled the streets safely in my neighborhood. The North is safe and we welcome all guests. Thank you for staying with us.

Larry and Jack.
