New York City

stay-truant-icons1Sofia Inn

 

One of the hardest things about visiting New York is finding a place to stay here. Friends don’t have extra bedrooms and hotels are either prohibitively expensive or soulless (and kinda scary) hovels. Luckily, Brooklyn is home to quite a few charming and inexpensive bed and breakfasts. The Sophia Inn is in a lovely old brownstone on a beautiful block in Park Slope just steps away from Prospect Park, the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens and the Brooklyn Museum of Art. A big bonus for design snobs such as myself: not a trace of the typical ruffly, saccharine décor the plagues many Northeastern bed and breakfasts!
