About this listing
Large living space with a private sunny bedroom in trendy Crown Heights, just 20 minutes from Manhattan via express 5 train (just one block away).
Experience the fusion of hipster, Caribbean and Hasidic cultures and wander around brownstone Brooklyn; explore Prospect park, Franklin Avenue bars and restaurants, and local underground culture.
Ever watched the sun rise over the rooftops of Brooklyn, peeking through the trees to herald in a brand new busy day? I love my large, sun-filled living room for the incredible views, and can't wait to share it with you.
Enjoy your private bedroom with a full size bed, closet, drawers and comfy corner couch, perfect for relaxing on after a long day in New York City. My vegetarian/kosher kitchen is great for cooking meals, making tea or coffee, or grabbing a quick breakfast before hitting the city!
We share the space, but your own bedroom is private and features a small corner space for living and hanging out. You're welcome to share the living room and kitchen with me. At times I'm around in the living area and there may be occasional moments when I need the space for work or while hosting, but you are always welcome to join! Of course, the kitchen is available for cooking and eating meals, provided you respect the rules (vegetarian / kosher only, please use disposables for meat and poultry items).
There's no roof access but you're welcome to use the shared backyard for hanging out, meeting the neighbors and enjoying Brooklyn in summer!
Interaction with guests
I love meeting guests from all over the world and am always happy to help with suggestions for sightseeing, shopping, restaurants or cool events in the city. I don't often have time to go out with my guests but I'm usually up for a chat in the living room if time permits! (If I'm busy and don't chit chat every time you come in, bear with me - I often work from home and can get very focused! I appreciate my guests being mindful of that but I'm always up for a conversation the next time around!)
Other things to note
This is a fourth floor walkup, so bear that in mind if you're travelling with heavy luggage. The view is worth it, though!
No tobacco smoking indoors. My kitchen is kosher / vegetarian however meat cooking can be accommodated if you ask in advance for me to arrange. Please be respectful of the space and leave it as you found out, I'm proud of it and hope you will be too!

I'm an Aussie expat who has somewhat indefinitely relocated to the Lower East Side, where I love to explore my neighborhood, meet new people, and travel to other parts of Manhattan and Brooklyn.
My bi-continental existence doesn't leave much time for added travel, but I'm a former hostel-loving backpacker and couchsurfer and absolutely love getting to know new people in this town. I tend to host when I'm traveling or spending time with family in another part of the city, but my tour guide button is never switched off so the recommendations will come aplenty!
Digital strategist by day, writer/music blogger by night, I'm always up for an adventure and happy to recommend one to any visitors to this town!
