About Darlene

I'm grateful to have the opportunity to list my property for others to experience, as I am a well seasoned traveler myself who appreciates a more authentic travel experience - one that allows me to get to know a place through the eyes of the local residents.

Darlene purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Darlene chose Crown Heights

Originally born and raised in Louisiana, I enjoy the stimulation New York City offers, but need a peaceful home to retreat to at the end of a hectic, often frenetic day. I honestly haven't found a more peaceful, serene escape in all of this vast city.

What makes this apartment unique

Having lived in New Orleans for so many years, to me Brooklyn is the closest thing to the Big Easy that you can get in the Big Apple....

My stay was incredible! The space is luxuries yet has a home like feel. Perfect combination!

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect location to learn about the heart the soul of Brooklyn. I spent my mornings and evenings just sitting in the stoop, listening and greeting people in the neighborhood. Learning ning more about what it means to live in Brooklyn in changing times of gentrification was meaningful for my experience here. What a wonderful home to stay in while you explore the beauty of Brooklyn. I'm looking forward to my next stay in summer of 2018!
