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. The building includes a coin laundry and there is also dry cleaning and businesses that will do your laundry on Ave B - they will pick up and deliver or you can use their coin machines. - 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.

If you want an authentic New York experience this apartment is for you
We are two single women (65+) and stayed at this apartment for three weeks (8-30/9/2017). The apartment is as shown and presented in the photos and details. We were very comfortable including one of us sleeping on a blow up bed. We were initially concerned about the two flights of stairs to the apartment but this turned out to be fine and possibly improved our overall fitness! Our host was great with communication before our arrival, initial welcome and then keeping in touch during our stay. The area was very cosmopolitan with a real community feel as well as many great restaurants and bars close by. This apartment is quite quirky because of the age of the tenement but all the facilities were great – good plumbing and great water pressure in the shower etc as well as feeling very safe and secure. I can highly recommend this apartment if it is an authentic NYC experience that you are after.
