Bushwick is an up and coming neighborhood in Brooklyn and Granite St in particular is full of friendly people and families with children. There is a community garden across the street from the house.

C-Town supermarket is nearby and dozens of restaurants in the area deliver fresh and cheap food quickly.

Thank you Ingrid!
We had a great time in NYC and in your room. Own bathroom and entrance. What do you want more? Very lovely hosts.
We, a family of 4, stayed with Ingrid for 4 nights. We enjoyed a warm and friendly welcome. We felt quite at home although the room is a bit dark with a small window, because it is in the sousterrain. There is a microwave and a fridge and limited kitchenware. It is nice to stay in a normal house, rather then in a hotel. More personal and you get a feeling of daily life in a Brooklyn neigbourhood. At a 5 minutes walk there is a good supermarket and the train/subwaystation is a 10 minutes walk away. It takes about 25 minutes to get to Manhattan.
We can recommend this adres, we look back upon our stay with great pleasure,

Ingrid is very kind and engaged. There is a direct connection with the subway to Manhattan. The neighbourhood is not a top location. The appartment has all the necessary equipment and even coffee and tea where there.
We had a great stay in NY and the home of Ingrid. The room was large and the beds were good. The bathroom was nice and clean. The subway was very close to the house, and the ride took only 20 minutes to Manhattan. Grocery store was five minutes away from the house, and ATM just around the corner of the house. I recommend others to rent this room.
Accommodation good, Separaterer input Cute Family Good Subway to Manhattan (half hour) underground stations in the neighborhood happy again
Gute U-Bahn Verbindung nach Manhattan (Halbe Stunde)
U-Bahnstationen in direkter Nachbarschaft
My daughter and I spent 6 nights in the Granite St. at Ingrid. Bottom line, a positive experience. Ingrid and her husband are really nice, helpful and straightforward. Room and bathroom were clean and the beds were actually very comfortable. What is missing in the room, is definitely a closet. Over days to have the open suitcase on the floor, is a little annoying. A 24/7-Minimarkt is 50 meters away, a supermarket again 50 meters. The driving time with L-or J-Train (each about 5 minutes walk to the station) to Manhattan is about half an hour, so it is a bit long if you want after a tiring day only shower again before the City or similar to eat drives. Must also be a conscious that one is in the middle of Brooklyn, not in a suburb of NY's flagship. Somehow, it was also cool to be "in the middle" and not isolated, in a tourist area. I was very impressed with the helpfulness of the people. Several times strangers have reached out to us recognizable Foreign and have offered help. I do not identify as of Germany. Again dispelled a prejudice ... Who is looking for a cheap place to stay and has no problems with the above trifles, should access.
Meine Tochter und ich haben 6 Nächte in der Granite St. bei Ingrid verbracht. Unterm Strich eine positive Erfahrung. Ingrid und ihr Mann sind wirklich sehr
nett, hilfsbereit und unkompliziert. Zimmer und Bad sind sauber und die Betten
tatsächlich sehr bequem. Was im Zimmer fehlt, ist definitiv ein Schrank. Über Tage den offenen Koffer am Boden zu haben, ist ein wenig lästig. Ein 24/7-Minimarkt ist 50 m entfernt, ein Supermarkt noch mal 50 m weiter.
Die Fahrzeit mit L- oder J-Train (jew. ca. 5 Minuten Gehzeit zur Station) nach Manhattan beträgt eine knappe halbe Stunde, ist also schon etwas lang, wenn man nach einem anstrengenden Tag erst noch mal duschen will, bevor man in die Stadt zum essen o.ä. fährt. Auch muß einem bewußt sein, daß man mitten in Brooklyn ist, also nicht in einem Vorzeige-Vorort NY's. Irgendwie war es aber auch cool, "mittendrin" zu sein und nicht isoliert in einem Urlauberareal. Ich war von der Hilfsbereitschaft der Leute sehr beeindruckt. Mehrmals sind wildfremde Menschen auf uns erkennbar Auswärtige zugegangen und haben Hilfe angeboten. Das kenn ich so von Deutschland nicht.
Wieder ein Vorurteil ausgeräumt...
Wer also eine günstige Übernachtungsmöglichkeit sucht und keine Probleme
mit den o.g. Kleinigkeiten hat, sollte zugreifen.
Wir waren im Mai in New York, wir haben bei Ingrid eingecheckt. Ingrid ist eine super nette Frau. Sie ist sehr hilfsbereit.
Die Unterkunft ist sehr sauber, sehr schön groß und mit Garten.
Ein großer Vorteil ist, man kann in Ruhe waschen und trocknen, nachdem man im Shopping-Center war :)
Der einzige kleine negative Punkt ist, das man mit der U-Bahn schon eine halbe Stunde unterwegs ist Richtung Manhatten.
Wenn man damit kein Problem hat, kann man günstiger nicht wohnen.
Viel Spaß bei Ingrid
