As you may have read on my other blog, we are going to be in India from July 7th through August 5th. We would like to sublet our Prospect/Lefferts Gardens apartment to a cat lover with a green thumb while we're gone. It's a nice size one bedroom, perfect for one or two people. It's got all new appliances in an elevator building overlooking Prospect Park, steps away from the train and convenient to many of the fun activites I've described on this blog.
Picture yourself living right over the Q train (15 minutes to Chinatown!) looking out the window at Prospect Park (right across the street), shuffling down the block to the Prospect Park Zoo or the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens, riding your bike or riding two stops on the train toward Manhattan to hit the Prospect Park Farmers Market, the Brooklyn Public Library or the Brooklyn Museum.
What can you eat in our neighborhood? What's not to eat? Have yummy Mexican at Enduro; have Chinese or Sushi delivered to your door. Gobble Jamaican beef patties or roti around the corner. Buy a fabulous curry at the drum circle (also right across the street) on Sunday afternoon.
Check out the Celebrate Brooklyn free concerts across the park. This year's line up has yet to be posted, but last year's performances included:
TV on the Radio
The Hidden Cameras
Yo La Tengo
and even a surprise visit by Prince!
Specific dates: July 7th through August 5th.
Asking $950; less if you're willing to cat sit. Looking for a non-smoker.
Did I mention that it's a short train ride to Coney Island, a long bike ride to Jacob Riis/Fort Tilden and a hop, skip and a jump to Di Fara's Pizza - the pie that stole my heart away from Angelo D'Angelo?
And our cat, Eliza, is wonderful! If it's a deal-breaker, let us know!
