Read a Letter from a Recent Happy Guest: 'Our stay in NY and in your House were great! We really enjoyed the house and we were so happy we were not in Manhatten. We especially loved your kitchen. This was the place we sat in or in the garden. Lovely to sit there in the morning with a coffee. We also met Sylvia (neighbor) and Hannibal (her dog). We never used the sitting room because we had great weather all week.
Everything you told me about the house was right. No surprises or disappointments. It's a house with great character and we also liked the neighborhood. Nice people everywhere.
Thanks again for everything. Hope to come back once'
The Neighborhood: Located in the historic district of Bedford-Stuyvesant; today a vibrant urban Caribbean/African American community (sandwiched in between the fascinating Hasidic areas of Crown Heights and Williamsburg), only 15 minutes from Prospect Park and Brooklyn Botanical Gardens/Zoo & Museum of Art. More and more young professionals are moving to Bedford-Stuyvesant in search of a neighborhood community and for its character, convenience and value for money. Nowhere else can you find such luxurious, spacious living, in the heart of New York City and only a 20 minute subway ride to Greenwich Village. Be advised that this is an area in transition. It is quiet and neighbors are warm and very friendly and whilst you will find an abundance of fresh fruit, seafood, meat and grocery stores -- there are few local restaurants and coffee shops. Not to worry -- Fort Greene and Williamsburg are only minutes away on foot, by bus or subway and home to some of today's best bars and restaurants in Brooklyn
