Mel purchased this Apartment in 2002
Why Mel chose Park Slope
Conveniently located in the center of Park Slope, the apartment is near many great restaurants, bars and local shops, and 2 different subway stations. Park Slope is a vibrant family neighborhood, populated by both longtime residents and more recent transplants. It's a real community where people know each other and help each other out, and is a great place to come home to after a day or a night out in Manhattan. The house was built in 1903 and retains most of its original features.
Charming Park Slope Garden apartment
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Mel's garden apartment. The space was roomy and comfortable, full of wonderful historic Brooklyn photos. The kitchen was perfect for breakfast/lunch/cocktail hour, leading out to the beautiful garden. The master bedroom was extremely comfortable, incl a library of classic DVDs. Most importantly, Mel's place was ideally located on a beautiful street of Park Slope, leading us to wonderful pubs, restaurants, wine shops and the peaceful Prospect Park. Let Mel's garden apartment begin your "Park Slope" experience! (3 great dining spots: Stone Park Cafe, Talde and Sofreh!)
Great home base in a great neighborhood
We really enjoyed our stay at Mel's home! The place is perfect for people who plan to be out and about most of the time but want a cozy place to come home to at the end of a busy nyc day. Thanks for Mel for being such a great host!
In the heart of Park Slope
The apartment was exactly like the pictures. In a great neighborhood close to the subway and the hub of Park Slope. Being a "garden" or "basement" apartment the interior was a bit dark, but plenty of lighting within. I would stay there again.
Clean, met our needs
We needed a place to stay in Brooklyn and Mel’s place met our needs. Kitchen was sufficient for breakfast and bed was comfortable. We were out of the apartment nearly all day so absence of sitting area was not a problem.
Great place for a family to "live" in the slope
Mel was an exceptional and attentive host. Although it isn't fancy, it has everything! Mel thought of every detail to make a family at home. We especially appreciated access to the yard. I hope to stay there again!
Beautiful and comfortable place to stay with easy check in and check out
Mel was very hospitable and it was nice having her there to greet us upon our arrival and show us around. The place is clean and comfortable and Mel is easy to get a hold of if anything is needed. The location of the apartment is also great as it is within walking distance to many nice restaurants and shops.
