Description

Le logement

The apartment feels giant with a modern well-equipped kitchen, and a spacious living room with a projector-based home theater system (evenings only unless you make a special arrangement). Backyard, laundry, and lots of other amenities including an exercise space and hotel style "business center."

Accès des voyageurs

Homemade breakfast is included, plus plenty of self-serve options to suit your schedule.

On weekends it's more like brunch with other interesting people, bloody marys & mimosas and adventurous food.

Vegetarian, vegan, low-carb, gluten-free, low-fat and other diets, can be accommodated with prior notice.

The kitchen is also available for your personal use.

You may make use of the home theater in the evenings, though please use headphones if others are working or sleeping. I can provide headphones upon request.

There's also a room we call "exercise room/office" which exits to the back yard. Depending on how full the house is, sometimes it doubles as my bedroom for seven and eight hours at night, but the room and the backyard are typically available to guests from 7:30 am to 10:30 pm.

The building is bicycle friendly and you'll find secure indoor parking if you bring a bike. Guests can often borrow one of our extras-ask ahead of time if possible.

Échanges avec les voyageurs

I'm a tech entrepreneur taking an extended break from business travel. I love to meet people and providing exceptional service. I'm also an avid cook and vegetable gardener, and enjoy offering guests "harvest to table" right here in my home.

I have been a 100,000+ miles per year traveler (business + holidays, usually bicycle touring) for most of my adult life and I see hosting on AirBnB as a rewarding activity that lets me use my knowledge and my hobbies to help visitors get the most out of their stay.

My cousin Tania lives upstairs on the second floor and she is also an AirBnB host. (check out her listing: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/7688130)

Tania and I are backup hosts for each other. I'm your primary contact but she's available in an emergency or if I'm temporarily unavailable.

After almost 25 years in the neighborhood and as many as an experienced traveller, I'm keen to be a resource for you. If you forget something, from a toothbrush or umbrella to a phone charger or video adapter for a presentation, ask if we've got one you can have or borrow!

Le quartier

Prospect Heights is great. I've lived here since 1991. I purchased the building in 2001. The neighborhood has come into bloom recently with great food and nightspots. The location is ideal for major Brooklyn attractions: Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAMB), BrooklynBotanic Gardens, Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn Public Library, Prospect Park, Atlantic Center Shopping, Barclays Center Arena are all a short walk awy.

The apartment is on a beautiful tree-lined street, and a five minute walk to Prospect Park. 10-15 min walk to the Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn Botanical Gardens, Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM), and the Barclay's Center.

Park Slope, Fort Greene, Crown Heights, Clinton Hill, and Boerum Hill (5-10 minutes) and Downtown Brooklyn (20-30 minutes) are all within walking distance.

Transports

The B, Q, and 2/3 trains are all a couple of blocks away, and will get you to lower Manhattan in 15-20 minutes. I'm also a 10-12 minute walk from the Barclays Center arena, which has access to several additional subway lines, LIRR (Long Island RailRoad including FAST public transportation to JFK Airport). The A,C, and G trains are about the same distance as the arena.

About Brooklyn&Breakfast

Our building, with four hosted Airbnb apartments, and five hosts working as a team is a unique arrangement: a true cooperative of Airbnb hosts pooling resources for the benefit of our guests and for the community.

I own the building, an 1893 Brooklyn Brownstone and live in the garden apartment. My cousin Tania, on the 2nd floor, and my 3rd and 4th floor tenants/friends all host with Airbnb, and we work together as a team.

We share many responsibilities, and provide services we could never offer to guests as individuals, yet each apartment here has its own character:

-My garden apartment is the Brooklyn&Breakfast hub. It's where we cook and serve breakfast for ALL hosts' guests every morning, w/ choices for everyone from paleo-carnivore to vegan. This includes a leisurely Sunday Brunch with many homemade choices and a chance to meet fascinating guests from around the world.

The apartment has three lovely guest rooms plus many common areas, with some shared access to the garden/backyard during the warm months. I live in the finished side of the lower (English Basement) level of the duplex; the other side is where we do laundry, keep supplies, and provide extra storage for some of our guests. There is also a 12-month indoor-garden for fresh herbs & micro-greens year round.

-My cousin Tania's newly renovated 2nd floor a offers the most privacy, and it's almost like renting a whole 1200 sq feet (105 sq meters) apartment

-Our cohosts Tom & Jordan's 3rd floor apartment has two guest rooms, a comfortable living room/dining room common space, and more;

-Ed & Tiffani, (+ sometimes Ed's daughter from a previous marriage) are the 4th floor hosts. Ed, an old friend, has been an Airbnb host in different homes for several years. He's a contractor and a big part of his contribution is making slow-but-steady building improvements, from better soundproofing guest-rooms, to repainting the hallways, and lots more. Tiffani also assists Len with Brooklyn&Breakfast's large backyard garden which, many months of the year, supplies food for breakfast and other meals. During those same months, guests from all four of our hosts' apartments have access to the backyard as well.

DIY laundry and/or laundry service is available in all four apartments

Brooklyn&Breakfast is mostly a labor of love, and it's also a little bit of a social statement:

We aim to demonstrate an alternative model for home sharing that can provide guests with a level of services closer to (and often surpassing) a true B&B or hotel, albeit with a more relaxed, 'mi casa es tu casa' flavor.

A stay at Brooklyn&Breakfast is not like renting a spare room or someone else's empty home while they're away, but neither is it anything like the growing number of dubiously-legal Aibnb quasi-hotels. By keeping rents affordable for long-term tenants, and taking pride in our neighborhood and in Brooklyn, we believe we're a small force against too-rapid gentrification.

If you have any questions, please contact us by sending us a message here.

Parking

Like most of New York City, Prospect Heights offers limited street parking. We can direct you to local parking lots. Parking in prime Brownstone Brooklyn is pricy compared to many cities but a bargain compared to Manhattan.


Règlement intérieur

You're sharing my home. I'm the owner of this four family Brownstone and expect you'll behave responsibly as you would in your own home.

When we serve breakfast it's "full service," and I'll do your dishes and keep your water glass full. ;-)

When you use the kitchen or grab breakfast self-serve please take care of your dishes (of course there's a dishwasher). And if you eat in your room or the living room be careful and clean up. No crumbs, we don't want pests.

Absolutely No Smoking In the Apartment. If you are a smoker, you're welcome to smoke in the back yard--or on the stoop like an authentic Brooklynite--so long as you are considerate of others and NEVER leave cigarette butts behind.

Second time I stay at Len's. Great host, superb breakfast. The location is quite cool, nice bars and restaurants in the neighborhood. It is also very good for transportation within Brooklyn and to Manhattan. This room is slightly larger than it looks in the picture: comfortable and convenient.

Great location near multiple subway lines and Prospect Park. Len's Sunday brunch is unmatched by any Airbnb host I've been to. House is quiet and clean, close to grocery stores, coffee shops, cupcakes and whatnot.

Place was as advertised, and a great value. Even better was Len as a host--friendly, hospitable, responsive. Great conversationalist and made a wonderful breakfast.

Len was incredibly generous and organized. I didn't get a chance to get breakfast since I left before 8am, so I can't comment on that. Would very much recommend. It's an easy walk to the subway.

We stayed 2 nights here with a friend and really enjoyed it. This is much more than a flat sharing. As said in the description, Len prepares a delicious brunch/breakfast so you can have a lot of energy for a walk in NYC! This is a quiet area but with restaurants and bar close-by. 2 subways stations are easily accesible. The bed from the room with the garden is super comfy. Everything was perfect. Thanks Len!

I'm Len. I'm an amateur cook and vegetable gardener, an entrepreneur, and a traveler, by bicycle whenever possible.

I live in the first floor apartment of my beautiful four story brownstone in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn. My cousin Tania (https://www.airbnb.com/users/show/9772800) lives on the 2nd floor, and we're both new hosts on AirBnB.

I try to assist all kinds of travelers by offering more than just some space and a bed. Explorers on a budget, families, young professionals, and experienced business travelers have different needs, and Prospect Heights can be a great neighborhood for all of you.

For now, my listing(s) will be for travelers booking short stays in the next 60 days.

Tania's are aimed at visitors coming for longer stays or planning further ahead (no instant booking, but we respond quickly).

Let us know how we can help with your visit to Brooklyn and to New York City.

AirBnB suggests sharing a "five favorites" list. Why not? I've traveled to dozens of destinations all over the United States and Canada, and around the world for work and for holidays.

Some of my all-time favorite trips, in no special order:

-Three weeks on the South Island of New Zealand. My first time celebrating New-Years-Eve in Summer. Made new friends and saw a landscape that is even more amazing in person than in the Lord of the Rings movies, no special effects required.

-My first visit to Vietnam in 2006 for a weeklong wedding celebration then a not-for-tourists tour led by locals: the newlyweds! (Yes, my friends still got a great honeymoon, after a week of hosting 10 guests, not just for a home, but for a country).

-Nine weeks bicycling in France. French food is probably my favorite, and with "cyclotourism" holidays there is almost no limit to how much I can enjoy without putting on pounds.

-My first ever cycling tour, from Los Angeles to San Francisco, with two old friends from high school not long after University. The scenery, meeting other cyclists while camping, and the feeling of accomplishment each day made me a convert to vacations spent pedaling.

-On a business trip to Manilla in early November 2000, I got to watch a peaceful political revolution across the street from my room! At the same time, I was following the news: voters back home in the US were learning that it can take more than just an election to decide who gets to be president.

If you read this far...well, thanks again! I hope to hear from you.
