Brooklyn Pied-a-Terre

Big one bedroom with cool modern furnishing and design, and a large, quiet bedroom. Located in safe + quiet Kensington BK, minutes from hip Cortelyou road, a fantastic nearby strip that features multiple organic grocery stores, fantastic restaurants (The Farm on Adderley was rated by Time Out Magazine as the "best reason to ride the Q train," featured on TV show Top Chef, and highlighted by Lonely Plant travel guide) swanky bars AND dive bars, a very nice wine shop and three gourmet coffee shops. There's a farmers market on Sundays.

Also in the neighborhood are Ditmas Fitness Gym and Jaya Yoga Center for the athletically inclined, as well as vast and beautiful Prospect Park. Finally, if you’ve never been to a Russian bath, this deeply Russian neighborhood puts you five minutes from the infamous Coney Island Banya, a legitimately awesome, totally authentic Russian owned and run bath house where for $30 you can soak and steam your troubles away over borscht and vodka. Great for cold winter evenings!

You’re five minutes to the F & G trains—The F is a lifeline into lower Manhattan’s east village, lower east side and soho, and the G takes you directly to the doorstep of the Brooklyn Academy of Music or on to the hipster haven of Williamsburg. You're also ten minutes from the express Q train.
I am usually out of town (I teach at MIT now). but will be there some weekends for work in the city, and will usually have my wonderful cats with me). I will give fair warning of when I will be around.
I put a wall up in the living room to make a tiny bedroom for myself. The apartment is still a great size and has a living room area, and your bedroom is really big.

About Me
Hi. Im Dan. Im a Lecturer in Theater Arts at MIT, after teaching at NYU for the past 20 years (I was the Head of Movement Training at the Playwrights Horizons Theater School / NYU Drama). I have a great apartment in Ditmas Park / Kensington Brooklyn. I put a wall up in the living room so I could have a small bedroom if I need to be in the city, but I am mostly in Boston these days. i will be back some weekends in the spring for shows I am doing, and I have two cats who will travel with me.
