I am currently renting a bedroom (12ft x 15ft) in my 3 bedroom Bushwick, Brooklyn ground floor apt. Tons of art and sun. Backyard access and small storage unit in basement. I have a small dog who keeps to herself & I'm a professional creative.
Major rules are simple and common sense - clean up after yourself, dont leave any dishes, keep guests to 1 at a time and primarily in your space and overall just respect the space and the work that has been put into it.
