Welcome to Flatbush! A multicultural, hip-yet-authentic neighborhood.

Are you interested in experiencing a multicultural, authentic neighborhood while you're here? Are you a foodie looking to explore the Brooklyn dining scene? Our renovated one-bedroom basement suite with living room, kitchenette, washer/dryer, office nook, and separate entrance offers privacy, proximity to subways, and numerous amenities (dining, bars, grocery stores, boutiques, markets, parks) within walking distance. Enjoy your own pied-à-terre in Brooklyn! ~~ A lively and diverse neighborhood populated by working families, Flatbush was highlighted last year by The New York Times as one of Brooklyn's up-and-coming areas: "Flatbush, Brooklyn, a Fit for Many Tastes and Budgets," 16 May 2015. We chose to make Flatbush our home because of its casual atmosphere, friendly neighbors, and proximity to Cortelyou Road, which offers many restaurants, bars, cafes, and other amenities. Residents commute to Manhattan by subway or express bus. The neighborhood is bounded by Ditmas Park (west), Midwood (south), Lefferts-Gardens (north), and East Flatbush. In 15 minutes or less, you can walk to: Dozens of restaurants, bars, and cafes; a huge supermarket (5-minute walk) and two organic grocery stores (15-minute walk); a farmer's market on Sundays; a yoga studio with massage and acupuncture practitioners on site; the spectacularly restored Kings Theatre (rock, jazz, reggae, theater, more); three gyms (Planet Fitness, 24-Hour Fitness, Retro Fitness); two outlet stores (Gap, Old Navy); Brooklyn's landmarked art-deco Sears; Prospect Park, Brooklyn's version of Central Park (20-minute walk); Smorgasburg, the celebrated weekly food festival featuring NYC's best artisanal vendors (in Prospect Park). ~~ This urban retreat occupies the basement level of a 100-year-old brick townhouse owned and lived in by your hosts -- two professors who walk to work (our university campus is nearby). The stylish LIVING ROOM features exposed brick, recessed lighting, mid-century modern decor; CB2 "Flex" sofa bed; 55-inch flatscreen "smart" TV with Netflix (free), Hulu (free), Amazon streaming video (for purchase), and more; DVD player and our small library of films and musicals; office nook with laser printer (bring your laptop); our expansive collection of sci-fi novels, historical fiction, and travel/language books; WIFI throughout the apartment. The newly renovated KITCHENETTE with LAUNDRY includes undercounter refrigerator/freezer, 2-burner electric cooktop, microwave, 12-cup coffeemaker, toaster, all cooking equipment and essentials (spices, olive oil, vinegar), petite dining area, compact Electrolux washer with steam, full-sized LG gas dryer with steam. BEDROOM features super-firm queen bed with 600 thread-count linens, full closet, plenty of shelves to store your stuff, and (in the summer) an air-conditioner. If you leave the bedroom door open, the air conditioner can cool the living room as well. BATHROOM features tiled shower, a showerhead with five comfort settings, and new white bath linens. PRIVATE BACKYARD features a patio, a table that seats four, and a Weber charcoal grill! ~~ OTHER THINGS to NOTE: We want you to be comfortable and to have a great time! So, in case it matters to you, we think you should know: 1) This is a basement suite. This means you have access to the backyard, but inside, there are small windows in the bedroom and kitchenette only, and the ceilings range from 7 to 8 feet high -- if you are tall, you will have to watch your head at times! Also, the bathroom has a shower only (no bathtub). 2) Please note that our house is located next to an auto-repair shop (typically open Mon-Sat 9am-7pm). Our block is an eclectic mix of businesses, century-old townhouses, and apartment buildings -- authentic Brooklyn. 3) The kitchenette does not have an oven or dishwasher, but it does have almost everything else (cooktop, microwave, etc.) Plus, there is a charcoal grill/barbecue in the backyard! 4) Depending on your destination, it takes anywhere from 45 to 90 minutes to travel from Flatbush to Manhattan via subway or bus. If you are concerned about commute times, contact us and we can advise.
