I have lived in Brooklyn for over 20 years, and in my house for 5 - making it a true home has taken a lot of effort, but has been a labor of love.
Although I have never thought of myself as an entrepreneur (I have always worked in social services, currently focusing on foster care), it has been fun creating a rental space in my house and I have really enjoyed the Air B&B guests I have hosted so far - it's been great to meet people from all over the world, and to show them a side of the city one doesn't get from the typical tourist spots.
In the time I've been in Crown Heights, the neighborhood has changed quite a bit - lots of young people have moved in, and several restaurants, arts groups and other businesses have followed. It's fun to see everything new going on, and I think makes it an interesting place to visit.
I look forward to hosting you during your time in Brooklyn!
