This apt is great! I share it with 3 people in their mid 20s from Austin and California. We each have large rooms spread out with plenty of kitchen and living room. My room is down a hallway in the back with large windows looking out on our backyard.
We have a community backyard for the whole building. Everyone enjoys hanging out for bonfires and BBQs out back. There are a lot of travelers staying in the building, so it's a great place to meet people from all over. Along with the backyard there is rooftop access and laundry in the building.
The apt has a large common area (living room, kitchen, and bathroom) that you will have access to. And don't forget about the backyard and roof access!
Everyone in the apt is very friendly and has some interaction in the common area, but schedules are very different. All of the roommates will be traveling for a few days or even a few weeks over the holidays.
We are located in a very popular area of Bushwick with coffee shops, restaurants, bars, and music venues. Maria Hernandez Park is 10 minutes from the apt. There are grocery stores and 24 hour corner stores within a few blocks. The M and L train are both 5 minutes away on foot.
Nice, clean, respectful, and help out with things everyone uses in the apt (toilet paper, paper towels, trash bags, etc.). No smoking inside, but feel free to smoke in the backyard.
