Unique Brooklyn townhouse
Philip is a professional musician and we have a range of instruments. We collect art so there are some interesting things around. The house is unique and quirky and not without charm. There is a nice garden in back accessed through French doors leading to a deck. If you cook, you are welcome to pick herbs, of which there is an abundance. The deck is a lovely place to sip a glass of wine and smell the honeysuckle.

My Home Town

We are 10 minutes from downtown manhattan either by car or subway (which is 1 1/2 blocks away. But even without crossing the bridge, Brooklyn has much to offer and our neighborhood -- park slope -- is rich with great restaurants, live music, good bars, and interesting shopping. Plus, our house is walking distance from Prospect Park and Green-wood Cemetary (resting place for Louis Tiffany, Leonard Bernstein, etc.). The immediate neighborhood is interesting with an art gallery on the block and many nice, friendly neighbors.
