Beautiful Brooklyn Apartment

Our Home

Lovely 2-bedroom Brooklyn apartment in lovely neighbourhood! Our apartment is located in a tree-lined street near the subway to Manhattan (15 - 30 minutes to the city, depending on where you go).

More about this property

Our place gets lots of sunlight and has wooden floors, a galley kitchen with bar for eating, a dining area, two bedrooms (one with a queen size bed and the other with a twin loft bed), and a playroom that converts to a bedroom with a blow-up bed that sleeps two, a bathroom, a study, and a large living room.

We have a dishwasher and a washing machine (in the basement). There is also wireless Internet access.


Our Neighbourhood

We are located in the central part of the Park Slope neighbourhood of Brooklyn, which is beautiful and full of cultural activities. Our street is lined with trees and classic pre-war buildings and is inhabited by young families, professionals and artists. Our building is a short walk from the subway and within easily access of anywhere in the city.

More about the neighbourhood

Park Slope is known for its beautiful brownstone houses, tree-lined streets, excellent dining, and spectacular Prospect Park. You can walk everywhere, and there are lots of trendy boutiques and restaurants as well as a farmer's market on Saturdays. The apartment is located in Park Slope, Brooklyn, near Prospect Park, the Botanic Gardens and Brooklyn Museum.


About Us

My husband, Alan Carroll, and I, Jolie Novak, are in our early 40s and have a 7-year-old daughter, Sadie. I am a Managing Photo Editor for AOL's Living websites, and Alan is a freelance mural artist and decorative painter. Alan is from Dublin, but has lived in the States for over 14 years now.

More about us

We love to travel and mostly go to visit his family in Ireland, but I lived in Paris for 4 years, and I'm itching to get back there, as well as visit other places as well!

We love the idea of a home/apartment exchange, as it offers an opportunity for others to come to visit our lovely city in a different way, and to really view what it is like to live here, rather than just being a tourist in a hotel!
