About George

We are a musician and fabric designer. We remodeled the place from scratch. We really love the place and stay here often ourselves, but we live upstate. It is really a home not just a rental property.

George purchased this apartment in 2003

Why George chose Brooklyn

We spent 20 yrs working in the arts in NYC. The neighborhood has the feel of the old days in the west village.

What makes this apartment unique

Close to every kind of cultural interest. Music, Art, Books, Fashion, Design and Food. Barclays Center a 15 minute walk. Great restaurants. Best beer place in Brooklyn around the corner.

  • 5 of 5

We love this apartment. I used to live in Park Slope before I moved to the Caribbean, and coming back to visit and stay at George and Katy's place is perfect. The accommodations are very comfortable and homey, and makes guests feel like part of the neighborhood. Great place. Looking forward to a return visit!

Perfect place in great neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed here 3 times. It is perfect for us as a couple. George could not be any better to work with, and the place is always clean and easy. Feels like a home away from home for us. This neighborhood has it all, and is accessible to everything. Walk to everything. Even the free parking on the street is easy! 5 stars all the way.

Great location in Park Slope!

  • 5 of 5

George was an amazing host. Prompt responses to all my requests and a really nice person. The apartment was clean and comfortable with everything required for a great nights sleep. A/C, wifi and a great layout of the apartment. I will be staying again on future visits as our daughter lives in Park slope as well. Loved all the great restaurants and shops just around the corner on 5th Ave. Street parking was a big plus.

Small but Mighty

Stayed here for my daughter's Graduation from Pratt. We were three short blocks from her apartment. Great Location near 5th. Clean and comfortable. Owner great to deal with, the process was painless. Security Deposit promptly paid back. Close to a great Haberdashery on 5th and you got to love the guys in the corner market. Walking distance to the Brooklyn Gardens. We will stay here again if possible.

10 Days coming 'home' to Georges place was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My wife & I (in our 50s) have just enjoyed a fantastic 10 night stay in Park Slope as part of a RTW trip. First time to NYC for my wife & first time staying in Brooklyn for me and we wouldnt change a thing. All communication beforehand was very clear so moving in and out was generously accomodated by George and the departing guests. George allowed us an early drop of our bags and a late checkout on our last day that was much appreciated as we had a 11pm flight and it was the only day of rain we had. the bed was smaller than we are used to but we fell asleep every night within minutes - so comfortable was it. everything clean and tidy and lots of room to spread our considerable luggage around. Played a few of Georges CDs to get us going each morning - check him out - a talented and interesting person for sure. As for Park Slope/Brooklyn - why stay anywhere else??? we bought a 7 day metro pass ($30) and used it every day to travel to each borough inc Derek Jeters second to last game at Yankee Stadium. (HINT:use if you want tickets to ANY event in NY - really easy to use and I had tickets delivered to the apt within two days!) Nearby Barclays centre is only 5 minutes walk and can take you almost anywhere. our favourite local eateries / bars were Calexico, Bonnies Grill, High Dive and Le Pain Quotidien. great food and service at all these places. we also made good use of the nearby 'sunshine Laundry' service ($1/lb) and the Arecibo car service to JFK. To top off a fantastic stay, I left some valuables behind that George quickly resolved for me despite him being in far off places - thanks again George & Katy for a fantastic stay - memorable for so many reasons. PS if you really like the place you could buy the downstairs apartment that is up for sale at $675K :-)

Nearest Barpub
Lobo and Bierkraft are across the street
Car: not necessary

A 10 min walk from the new Barclay Center. Nearby Fifth Avenue has great shopping, cafe culture, nightlife, and top notch restaurants.

Park Slope is boasts museums/galleries and of course the fabulous Prospect Park. Almost everything is walking distance from the apartment, but there is excellent public transportation as well.
