All who stay will experience living in a fantastic apartment in NYC while saving a few bucks from pricey NYC hotels that are located in the heart of the tourist frenzy areas in midtown. It's new, very clean and is in a great location, being only 2 minute walk to subway or less than a minute to a bus stop and you can always hail a taxi right in front of the building within a minute or two.
The apartment has a large bedroom (main floor) with queen bed, loft bedroom (top floor) with queen bed, a full bathroom, fully stocked kitchen and living room with 2 new modern retro sofas that also fold out flat into comfy double/full beds, HD TV with 1900+ channels, WiFi and includes breakfast!
This apartment is on the 6th + top floors of a modern, elevator building which faces South (sunny and bright, with excellent breezy ventilation but is equipped with A/C) and is across the street from a school, so it's quiet at night and in the mornings on weekends!
Prices (USD), not including fees: (During the Summer Months (May thru Sep) there are NO Check-ins on Saturdays or Sundays (unless after 10 pm, Sunday night only).
Stays less than 6 nights are $400 night (Mon-Thurs) and $ $ 450/night on weekends (Fri,Sat,Sun), plus extra people charges. Weekly price is $ 2800.
Prices may vary due to other circumstances as well. During summer months (May through September), the minimum stay is 3 nights (on weekends). I will occasionally book 1 or 2 night stays if they add or it precedes or adds to an existing reservation.
The unit has a fully stocked kitchen: full size fridge/freezer, dishwasher, gas stove/oven, microwave, top of the line stainless cookware, utensils, dishware, glassware and a full bathroom with a tub.
There is a laundry room in the basement if you feel like doing laundry, or a laundromat/dry cleaner half a block away.
The Building and Neighborhood: This ELEVATOR building complex has 12 units, mostly 2 bedrooms, and there are 2 apartments on each floor.
2 minute walk to subway (L Train)
1 minute walk to Bus (M15)
10 minute walk to Union Square (every single subway is accessible from)
20-30 minute walk to midtown (Empire State Building, Times Square, Madison Square Garden)
This neighborhood is very lively after the sun goes down. The East Village has been heavily built up over the last 5 years and located in one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Manhattan. The East Village offers a variety of restaurants, cafes, bars and a beautiful park. You can walk to Indian, Russian, Italian, Mexican, Japanese, Chinese, Thai, Vegetarian and American restaurants within a 5 block radius. If you're too tired and beat up from touring NYC and don't feel like going anywhere, you can simply order room service and have anything delivered to the room (usually until 11 pm or midnight) as there are plenty of menus from all the nearby food establishments. These little privately owned restaurants are MUCH better than midtown/tourist-trap food chain places as well. There are at least three 24/hr places to get food within 2 blocks and about 50 restaurant/bars/cafes and shopping within a 3 block radius and probably 500 within a 10 block radius. This building is one of only a few in the neighborhood that has an elevator. About 95% of the buildings in the area are walk-ups. Enjoy a beautiful park (Tompkins Square) 2 blocks away the East River waterfront park about 5 streets/blocks to the east.
At no additional charge, I'm happy to recommend the cool, not-in-the-guide-books places for nightlife or dinner or anything else you may seek while in NYC!
ADDITIONAL INFO / CHARGES:
For stays of more than 8 nights, I require the house cleaner to come at half way point to clean entire apartment and bathroom, do laundry for sheets + towels, dust, sweep + mop floors.
The bedroom is for a single person or couple. The sofas fold out flat into beds (full size and actually quite comfortable!). Maximum is 4 adults or 5 if you are a family with children. My place is not child friendly as the stairs are dangerous, and little children cannot comprehend the responsibility of being in a roof top, so no children under 10 years of age, sorry.
Cleaning charges: NO CHARGE up to 7 nights.
Towels: Clean when you arrive.
Breakfast: Included in price, to help start your days. Coffee, Tea, Juice, Pastries or Bagels or Cereal, milk or whatever else you want! I'll take your breakfast order after you book your reservation and stock kitchen for your arrival for you to prepare and eat at your leisure.
AGAIN, PLEASE DO NOT MAKE RESERVATION REQUEST UNTIL I CONFIRM AVAILABILITY!!!!
Entire apartment and private roof terrace!
Interaction with Guests:
I will meet all guests at check in to give you keys, info on the apt/building/neighborhood and rules of responsibility for using the roof terrace.
Food, food, drink, more food and more drink! Over 400 places to eat and drink in the East Village, by far the best in Manhattan for foodies in my humble opinion. (My belly is proof!)
Just walk! I've been living in Manhattan for 10 years now, and it takes 20-40 minutes to get anywhere in Manhattan FROM anywhere in Manhattan whether you walk, take a taxi or subway. If you want to take longer, jump on a bus. I recommend walking, it's free, by far the safest way to travel, you get to see cool things along the way and you're never waiting and hoping a taxi will be free or the train will be on time (rare).
