Urban Oasis in Brooklyn - gorgeous 2 bedroom house

Beautiful, artsy house on a great block - truly an Urban Oasis. I have a large picture window that looks out onto the street in front and a lovely garden in the back. There are 2 bedrooms upstairs plus a 3rd room that I use for exercising, a large dining room, large living room, full kitchen and 1-1/2 baths.

Excellent neighborhood - South Slope, Brooklyn. My house is right off of 5th Avenue, also known as restaurant row for all the great places to eat. I am close to Prospect Park which rivals Central Park in beauty and size. Also close to BAM (The Brooklyn Academy of Music), Green-wood Cemetary and the new Barclays Stadium. I am 2 blocks from the subway (R train to Prospect Ave) and can be in the city in 20 minutes or to Coney Island/Brighton Beach in 40 minutes.

I have 3 wonderful kitties and some plants that need care while I am away. I would love to find some cat-lovers to stay in my place and am willing to negotiate on the price in exchange. I have wifi and central AC. All in all, it's a great place to stay!

About Me
I am 62 years old and work as a stage manager/lighting designer for dance. I was a professional dancer in NYC, then transitioned to backstage. I have been fortunate in my career to tour the world. I now have a full time job in NYC at Barnard College but still enjoy traveling for fun or work when circumstances allow. I have a lovely house in Brooklyn and enjoy providing shelter to out-of-towners, either upstairs when I am away or downstairs in the guest apartment. Upstairs, I live with 3 cats so appreciate gracious house guests who don't mind doing some plant and animal care as part of their stay.
