Spacious 1-bed apt in Crown Heights. Old, quiet building, with newly renovated units, a fun mix of young and old neighbors. Cafes, supermarket, laundry, pharmacy, convenience stores, bus stop, all on the block, or within minutes.
This northern part of Crown Hts is a diverse, vibrant neighborhood between Prospect Hts and Bedstuy, rich with Caribbean and African American culture, and new cafes and shops popping up all the time. Short walk to subway, and 3 blocks to Franklin Ave.
The apartment is on the 2nd level of a 4 floor walk-up, a front facing unit, with 3 windows in the bedroom.
The apt has (1) large main room with adjacent open kitchen and breakfast counter, and (1) spacious bedroom with comfortable full/queen bed and desk/office area. Small bathroom w new fixtures, hot-water shower and tub, great water pressure.
The main space is used differently from time to time, so the furniture is often shuffled around. No fixed dining area, but there is a nice breakfast counter that seats two, or a table in the main space that alternates as a computer desk or intimate dinner table.
Some pictures also show a photo backdrop with lights - these will be packed away (though if you are a filmmaker or photographer, and could make use of the equipment, let me know and I will leave it for you). No TV, but the 21" iMac and table can be moved in front of the couch, if you wanted to relax a bit and stream.
The apt was completely renovated about 3 years ago, but it is in an old building in Brooklyn, so you should be okay with the quirks and character that come with this type of space, ie a radiator that clanks from time to time, occasional street noise, etc.
The place is yours to make yourself at home. Feel free to use kitchen, cookware, coffee & tea, high-speed wifi, iMac, books, DVDs, whatever. I can give you access to my Netflix and Mubi accounts.
Although much of the closet and storage space will be occupied during your stay, you will have an empty dresser in the bedroom at your service, and some space in closet to hang and store whatever.

If I'm not around I will have a couple of neighbor friends on the block exchanging keys, looking after the place and helping you if something comes up.
Enjoy the stay, take care of the place, and respect the neighbors!
