Loralei B&B

Periodically we’ll feature one of our properties here to let our readers know about some great gay friendly places to stay:

Loralei Bed & Breakfast is a 3 story Victorian home in Brooklyn, originally built in 1904, an amazing era when the NY subway was new, and electric lights lit up Brooklyn’s Luna Park in Coney Island.

The Loralei B&B sits among hundreds of beautiful, historic homes along wide, tree-lined avenues in Ditmas Park, a historic district with one of the biggest groups of Victorian homes in the USA.

When guests arrive, they are always surprised at this historic Victorian enclave in the heart of New York City. Lance & Rob have owned the home for many years, and they have carefully restored the interior of this lovely home.

As you enter the Loralei B&B, you step into the past – from the wrap-around porch with its stately columns to the parlor, sitting room and dining room, which are decorated with restored antique furniture and accented with beveled glass French doors.

Lance and Rob have stayed in many inns during their travels, and they’ve used that knowledge to make their guests feel truly welcome at Brooklyn’s Loralei Bed & Breakfast. The Loralei B&B hosts many visitors coming to Brooklyn to see friends and family, or to explore all the great aspects of New York City.

Manhattan is just 25 minutes away via the subway – an exciting place that many of our guests come here to enjoy. New York City is a great place to visit – it’s the best and brightest its ever been.

Each of our guestrooms includes a/c, private bath, luxurious mattress and fine linens, Victorian decor and furnishings, television and cable access, wifi, and a second floor location.

Our Gramercy Suite is the home’s original, sunny master bedroom. This room has 6 tall windows on three sides, warm cherry wood floors, floor to ceiling closets, a queen bed, and Victorian furnishings. The guestroom’s private, full bathroom blends green marble, oak trim, and glass. There’s also a little sitting room next to the bedroom.

Our Sutton Room is beautifully decorated with a queen bed and three tall bay windows. The guestroom’s private, full bathroom, next to this room in the hall, is accented with white marble and red, black, and white colors. We also provide luxury guest robes.

Sutton Room guests wishing to sleep separately, can use the elegant Sutton Sitting Room across the hall for an additional fee. The Sutton Sitting Room offers a single bed, wireless internet, and television. The private full bath at the end of hall serves the two rooms of the Sutton Suite.

Coming to New York City for business or a romantic getaway? Come stay with us at Loralei B&B – the perfect place to explore Brooklyn and the rest of the Big Apple.

Globetrotter Girls – The Living Pyramid in Queens, New York

Living Pyramid - Queens - Globetrotter Girls

After exploring more of the Bronx last summer, I thought that it was time to focus more on Queens this year, where I admittedly spend only very little time – even though there is so much to do and see in Queens… it is the largest one of New York’s five boroughs after all.

My favorite part of Queens is Astoria, a traditionally Greek neighborhood, but like so many parts of Brooklyn and Queens increasingly gentrified with a growing number of cool bars and hipster coffee shops. When I heard that the Metropolitan Opera Summer Recitals series would stop at the Socrates Sculpture Park in Astoria this year, I had the perfect excuse to return to this little park to which I was introduced last year (it’s likely to be included in the next edition of my Five things to discover in New York that most tourists (and locals) never do series) and which is a highly underrated free thing to do in New York – of course ideally combined with some authentic Greek food or drinks in one of Astoria’s many bars, or simply watching the sunset over the Manhattan skyline right in the park or nearby Rainey Park, which also sits right on the East River.

When Visiting New York, I Choose Brooklyn

Author: , January 26th, 2013

New York CityWhen most people think of New York City, they think of Manhattan: Skyscrapers, Broadway shows and Times Square. It’s not surprising, given how centrally most films, television shows and other cultural materials focus on New York’s most ubiquitous borough.

But I know better: Whether staying with friends or in New York vacation rentals, I’ve always explored New York City using the borough Brooklyn as my base. Here are just a few of the advantages of calling Brooklyn your New York city home.

New York City has gained a reputation as one of the world’s most expensive cities, and this isn’t unfounded: Small apartments in Manhattan can easily cost you 5,000 USD per month or more. It’s also not surprising, given how many people – around 8 million – occupy such a relatively small area.
