Spacious & Modern 2BR Brooklyn Apartment: August 2019 - August 2020

Our peaceful home is available furnished from August 2019 - August 2020.

We are subletting our spacious and modern two-bedroom co-op in Fort Greene, Brooklyn. The apartment is perfect for a couple or small family with one or two children who are looking for a place to settle in for the year. Fort Greene is a charming neighborhood with excellent restaurants and cafés, and the apartment is close to Fort Greene Park and a mere block away from two fun playgrounds. The Clinton-Washington stop on the G train is just outside, the C train two blocks away, and the subway hub at Atlantic Terminal is a quick ten-minute walk; from there you can catch a train anywhere in New York City or jump on the LIRR. We live in an elevator building, so the apartment is easily accessible with a stroller and/or wheelchair.

The apartment is large (approx. 1000sf) and decorated with a mid-century sensibility. It features a well-equipped kitchen with a gas stove, dishwasher, and ample refrigerator and freezer space. One bedroom has a king-sized bed with an organic latex mattress; the second bedroom has a bunk bed (organic latex mattresses there, as well) and is set up for a six-year-old and a three-year-old to play, but can be modified depending on your needs. There is ample closet space throughout. The bathroom has a shower in the tub. The apartment has access to washers and dryers in the common laundry room on the first floor of an adjacent building. The building itself is secure and calm with a wonderful community of residents who all know each other and often stop to chat in our lovely courtyard.

Fort Greene and its surrounding neighborhoods have much to offer: from our apartment, you can easily stroll to the Brooklyn Academy of Music, the Brooklyn Museum, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, the Brooklyn Children's Museum, and Olmsted's gorgeous Prospect Park. Local colleges include Pratt Institute and its beautifully landscaped campus, Long Island University, and St. Joseph's College, while NYU, CUNY, and Columbia are easily accessible via subway. There is a grocery store conveniently located on our block, with other food offerings (restaurants and more specialized shops) within easy walking distance. Downtown Brooklyn is a quick walk or subway/bus ride away, and now features a Trader Joe's, Whole Foods, and Target.

About us:

We are both academics, one of us works in film/media and the other in translation. Our family enjoys traveling, and we will be spending the year abroad for work. Our two children have many friends in Fort Greene and we have thrived in this neighborhood since they were born - we hope you will love it too! Please note: due to allergies, we cannot rent our apartment to smokers or anyone with pets, sorry.

About Me
We are both academics who teach at the university level, in literature and art/film, respectively. We enjoy traveling, as well as cooking, reading, film, visiting museums, and playing with our two children. We frequently travel for extended periods during the summers and winters, and would like to find someone who is neat and responsible and will take good care of our home.
