This is my primary home, which is a single-family private house (not an apartment building). If you book my whole house, then I'll stay with my best-friend next door, so I'll always be close whenever you need me. I take my cues from my guests and their personalities. So, you can ask me questions about living in New York and I can help you make decisions, or I can hand you the keys and buzz off!
I manage client logistics for a living, so I'm super familiar with the city and its quirks. I will be happy to troubleshoot with you when needed. I keep a live neighborhood guide that organizes my preferred businesses in the neighborhood, by walking distance, and in categories: Provisions, Lunch, Brunch, Dinner, Dessert, Bars, Transportation, Journeys, Shopping, etc. Every new bit of research I do for myself or a guest: I add to my live guide. *AirBnB does not allow hosts to share links to outside resources until you are booked, but you can see basics on the map in this listing!
The area is very safe. I've lived here for a decade and have yet to experience any crime. The immediate couple blocks are warehouses and services and studios mixed with townhouses and apartment buildings. Gowanus is a classic protected New York MIXED-USE residential+industrial neighborhood, only a few blocks in width, that runs down the center of two large affluent neighborhoods: Park Slope and Carroll Gardens. The house is in prime walking distance from top-rated restaurants & bars, as well as farmers-markets, boutiques, and Prospect Park.
6 minute walk to WholeFoods supermarket. Extensive online guest logistics guide for your reference, organized by walking distance. I'm Available for advice or directions anytime. It's a safe family-friendly neighborhood, and my neighbors are friendly and watch-out for each other. There are literally hundreds of businesses in walking distance.
When you need advice and directions, I'll send you map links anytime with specific instructions. I know my way around this city, and also the strange quirks of the MTA. It takes 4 minutes to walk to the Metro station at 4av-9st, serviced by the FGNR trains, which will take you anywhere in the city for $2.75. The F-train takes 10 minutes to get to the first stop in Manhattan in the East Village.
Please contact me for tips on the best way to get here from NYC airports: please provide your flight number and how many people will be traveling with you.
There is plenty of free street parking in my immediate vicinity.
SUBWAY operates 24hrs a day. There are plenty of taxis, you can hail by hand, that travel down my street, available 24hrs. Reserve and pay for taxis using the smartphone app Way2Ride, which is not subject to surge pricing. Other popular taxi apps in NYC are Lyft & Uber.+ More
