Do you have a question about this home or the local area?

Set in a traditional Brooklyn brownstone, The Unlikely Friend is a recently remodelled, ground floor home with a unique balance of modern luxuries, traditional architectural features and unique artwork. Your hosts are not only talented artists themselves, they're also a delight to stay with, making sure you have everything you need for a relaxing trip. The nearest subway station is a two-minute walk away, but even better is the well-kept garden in the back, ideal for long summer days.

A lush, elegant retreat from the tumult of city life, Clinton Hill is located in Central Brooklyn, and offers the youthful energy of a leafy college town with a laid-back, genteel atmosphere. Walk along the beautiful Clinton Avenue or the main retail corridor, Myrtle Avenue, and you’ll find young parents pushing strollers, artists in paint-splattered clothes, and students enjoying an alfresco meal. You’ll find a greater diversity of architectural styles...
