I am a visual artist and make my home available for responsible mature guests, preferably over 40, while I am traveling. It is in a small friendly and safe building in the East Village.
The apt is a typical east village floor-through home is available for a couple or single (over 35 years old) looking for a clean quiet temporary apartment in the city.
It is beautifully furnished with designer furniture and family antiques. There are windows front and back of this typical railroad apt, with a sunny kitchen, and quiet bedroom with a new super comfortable plush firm full (double) mattress. There is a desk with wifi ( w/small speakers and a usb printer)the contents of drawers are private, hd tv w/local channels (w/vhs and dvd player). Includes an ironing board, a full kitchen with all-clad pans, a tivoli radio in the kitchen, a gas oven, linens and towels and a hairdryer. The apt also includes cleaning every two weeks and I provide sheets and towels. Books are personal and not to leave the apt.
This is a very simple apartment, there is no microwave, and true to the tenement design- only one sink in the kitchen! The bathroom has a great bath and shower. For laundry the business on Ave B picks up and delivers or you can use their coin machines and dry in the apt- i have a drying wrack. The typical tenement is about 450 sq ft.
No smoking, and shoes off at the door, appropriate for a couple or one person, not two single visitors as there is only one bed. It is important to understand that no extra guests are to be invited to stay at the apt during the reservation and absolutely no parties- though friends and family are welcome to stop by- as long as they take their shoes off and are respectful of my personal belonging.
This is a friendly, small building so it is important to be respectful of the neighbors, quiet in the hallway, and pay attention with the recycling bins.
The apt is a two flight walk up. on the second floor above the street. The place is nice and warm in the winter and has a lovely breeze in the summer with ceiling fans, ac, and windows in the front and back.
The East Village is walking distance to NYU, SOHO, everywhere downtown. Nearest subway is the F train East Village stop. There is also a great East River track off sixth street. The buses are the M14, M9, and M21. The nearest subway is the 2nd Ave/East Village stop on the F train. In the summer there is the Pitt St. pool one block away which is great for morning laps (7am).
You will have wifi and a comfortable space, full kitchen, shower and bath. Cleaning person scheduled every two weeks. Sheets and linens provided. Since it is my home you also get my personal help regarding all details of your trip.
I check in throughout your stay. Communication is key. I am available for all inquiries regarding the city and neighborhood and especially regarding my home- I do meet you when you arrive and review everything necessary for the apt. -and leave thorough written explanations for reference.
The east village is the best for a thousand choices of super affordable restos, bars, and clubs. Walking distance to soho, Chinatown, NYU, West Village, even Williamsburg.
The closest transportation is the M14 bus, the M9 and the F and 6 trains, plus city bikes around the corner.+ More
