Property Details
Our apartment is a sunny 1-bedroom flat located on the top floor of what was once a single-family residence. We are on the 4th floor, and as is often the case with small, older buildings, there is no elevator.

We are lucky to be situated on a quiet, tree-lined street in the Park Slope historic district, a lovely neighborhood of Victorian brownstone row houses and gas lamps, bordering Brooklyn's Prospect Park. Our flat is at the back of the house, and overlooks a peaceful back garden and little-used side street. Friends who have stayed with us invariably comment on how tranquil our location is; the sun and birds outside are likely to wake you in the morning!

We have a truly small (by American standards) but well-equipped kitchen, a bedroom with double bed, (and computer with Internet access, and phone) , a classy sea-green art deco bathroom with a skylight that opens, and a large living/dining area with a TV/VCR, stereo, DVD player, about a thousand books, and an antique dining table that seats 8.

The living room also has a double futon couch (which can accommodate another guest or couple, if necessary) , and French doors that lead onto a private terrace with an elaborate container garden and a table with four chairs. The terrace has a roof over one half (the half nearest the door) , which means you can sit outside even when it's raining -- or sit in the shade, if you prefer, on a hot sunny day! We spend most evenings here when the weather allows, with an iced tea or glass of wine, enjoying an impressive view of the sunset!
Area Details
Though tucked away in a quiet enclave, we are a 2-minute walk away from 7th Avenue, the primary commercial street in Park Slope. Within 5 minutes' walk you will find everything you need, from wine, to fresh bagels, to an all-night greengrocer, to supermarket, banks, bookstores and boutiques. Also nearby are restaurants virtually too numerous to mention, including Chinese, Japanese, Mexican, French, Italian and Thai. On weekends, there is a lively farmerís market near the park, and a treasure-filled flea market at the local elementary school.

We are also about a 5-minute walk to Prospect Park (designed by Calvert Vaux and Frederick Law Olmstead, renowned Victorian landscape architects who also designed Manhattan's Central Park) , and 10 minutes to the Brooklyn Museum, the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens, and the main branch of the Brooklyn Public Library.

Our neighborhood is attractive, lively, and very livable, with young families, teachers, politicians and well-known writers mingling at the corner coffee shop. Our neighborhood is not at all touristy, and previous exchange partners have been very happy here.
Travel Details
We are within 5 minutes' walk of 3 major subway lines; depending on the line you choose, it is about a 10-minute trip to lower Manhattan. There is also a bus stop about 1 block from the house.
