We can lend your kids our toys, books, etc. We provide hotel quality amenities: towels, shampoo and conditioner, soap, hair dryer, umbrellas, guide books, maps, etc. For longer stays, weekly professional cleaning service is provided at no additional charge. We're located in a great section of the neighborhood of Fort Greene! You can search for it online to find out more. Watch out for other listings on the fringe of the neighborhood, or too close to the Barclay Center. Ft. Greene is an exciting neighborhood with plenty to do, but it's also quiet and feels like a real neighborhood. Close by is Fort Greene park, the famous Brooklyn Flea market, a weekend farmer's market, the second largest subway hub in New York City, the Barclay Center, the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM), and of course restaurants, cafes and bars. Just 15 minutes from Manhattan! Also, CitiBike bike sharing has bikes for rent every few blocks in a large part of Brooklyn and Manhattan. We have WiFi or wired internet. The living room has a flat screen TV with Netflix, Hulu Plus (for viewing TV shows), and AppleTV. We look forward to hosting you! House Rules: We are happy to welcome you into our family home! While you have your own apartment and complete privacy on the top floor, we live on the lower floors. Our children run up and down the stairs, though they go to sleep relatively early. You might also run into one of our cats (Snuggles and Bug) in the hallway. We strive to give you a hotel-like experience with the amenities, professionalism, and cleanliness you'd expect from an upscale hotel, but please remember this is also our home. So... 1) No Guests Since we share the common hallway, we want to make sure we know everyone we might run into! 2) Keep the noise to a respectful level at night for our family and neighbors. 3) No smoking indoors, please. Otherwise, have fun...explore...enjoy! More

About the neighbourhood
Our neighborhood, Fort Greene, is very close to Manhattan (we are just two blocks from a subway station), but feels much more comfortable. It's quiet and spacious, with tree-lined blocks filled with historic 'brownstone' houses from the 19th century. There is a beautiful park designed by the same people who designed Central Park, a local farmers market, a famous flea market, and plenty of cafes, restaurants, and fancy food stores. You can search online, as there have been many articles written about our neighborhood. Also, AirBnB has neighborhood guides you can look at. As for transportation, you can get to Manhattan very easily via subway. We are two blocks from the 'C' train, and 7 or 8 blocks from the 2nd largest subway hub (after Grand Central) in the city, where many lines run...
Getting around
The best way to get around New York is by subway. We recommend google maps to help you plan your subway trip. You can also of course use taxis and ride hailing apps.
