Cocoon in Greenpoint, Brooklyn Home

Shared Room

About My Space

My apartment is spacious so that everyone can have a little nook to do work in, read, eat, sleep. It is located in a calm neighborhood that is peaceful and quiet with a strong Polish presence.

The solo traveler's bed is located in the kitchen and next to the living room area. This can turn into a desk during the day where you can keep personal items or use as a work space. At night you can pull the curtain around the bed, which creates a cosy and private cocoon for sleeping.

I will be your lovely host and roommate during your stay.

Clean linens and towel provided.
Laundromat is half a block from the apartment and open 7 days a week.
In addition to the $30 a night fee, please bring the towels and linens used to the laundromat. I will have a bag for laundry ready for you. Please drop-off, prepay, and bring receipt back to the apartment before your departure.

You have full access to the living room with couches and tables/chairs and the kitchen (microwave, oven, fridge, dishwasher).

You can use pots, pans etc. for cooking. There is a dishwasher available. There will also be cabinet space and fridge for your food.

About Myself

As an artist painter living and working in NYC, my life is filled with encounters of all kinds. I paint but I also work for sculptors. This city has something for everybody. I speak four languages which can be helpful for all kinds of communication: English, French, Finnish, Spanish..and currently learning Portuguese. There is a quiet peacefulness to my apartment, nice light during the day, and I welcome visitors from all over to stay with me in the cocoon and share the silence or to shake it up a bit.

I paint with colors.
