Last week my husband and I had our best-ever New York experience in a lovely corner of Brooklyn. The area, with gorgeous Prospect Park, Botanical Gardens and Brooklyn Museum of Art a stone's throw away, is stellar; it is also an up & coming neighborhood with trendy, bohemian-chic restaurants & boutiques & gourmet shops & wine cellars on 5th & 7th Avenues. It is also ultra safe and residential. Don is a wonderful host; he makes you feel more than welcome in his beautifully decorated bed & breakfast. And this B & B extraordinaire is full of suprises - Don's lovely granddaughter draws you a picture of your favorite pet; the superbly gifted young neighbor gives an impromptu cello recital, and on any given evening you may walk into a cocktail party with all sorts of interesting people present...not to mention mimosas on Sunday morning, and the original Art Deco bathroom circa 1938! Oh and did I say Midtown Manhattan is only 20 minutes away on the Q train? Yes, it is, and the subway stop is literally around the corner. And before I forget, as a housekeeper you get a talented young Italian artist! Don't miss out on this unique experience!
