The house of my apartment is an typical old building how you find it all around Berlin. It has wooden floors and heigh ceilings. Although the street is near to a big one, where you can find the Underground Station, you don't hear the rumour of the cars.
All around there a lot of shops to buy food, restaurants and bars. The typical mixture of Friedrichshain. Not far away there are nice parks.
In the ground floor of the house is a good antiquarian bookshop.
