am renting one bedroom in my two-bedroom two-bathroom apartment located close to the intersection of Bedford and Eastern Parkway in Crown Heights. The room comes with a built-in closet, and its own private, en suite bathroom with standing shower.
Fully and comfortably furnished, the room has simultaneously fit all of the following in the past: a queen bed, a writing desk and chair, a 6-foot-long dresser, a bedside table, and an end table. The rest of the apartment is also fully and comfortably furnished, decked out in plants, and the kitchen is well equipped. The living room faces north, looks out onto tree-lined Eastern Parkway, and is flooded with light from sun up til sun down. The neighborhood is lively, with lots of restaurants and bars, Prospect Park, the main branch of the Brooklyn Public Library, and the Saturday farmer’s market at Grand Army Plaza all being a short walk away.
The apartment has its own mini-washer and mini-dryer, and there is card-operated laundry in the basement and a 24-hr laundromat around the corner.
I am the leaseholder, and have lived in, and loved, this apartment for the past ten years. I am an immigrant, a writer, performer, editor, and translator. I work from home but maintain an active social life. I host some small performance events and literary readings occasionally in the apartment.
I’d hope to share the space with someone kind, clean, and considerate, and who is GLBTQ and/or GLBTQ-allied looking to move into a furnished apartment in a great neighborhood. I’m open to both short-term and long-term possibilities.
