The East Village
The East Village is famous as the birthplace of cultural and artistic movements in New York. Today, the neighborhood has many artistic attractions, perhaps more importantly some of the best value bars, restaurants and boutique shopping in Manhattan. The demographic is a mix of older Eastern Europeans, NYU students, actors, artists, musicians and young professionals.
There are 2 Subway stations within a 3-5 minute walk: Astor Place (4,5,6 trains) or 8th Street Station (N,Q,R trains) which serves all of New York. Alternatively, you can walk to the following areas: Greenwich Village in 15-20 minutes, Soho, Little Italy & Chinatown in 15 minutes, Union Square, Alphabet City & Lower East Side, in 10 minutes.
There are 2 Wholefood supermarkets within 10 minutes walk for all your high-quality groceries; however you will most likely use any of the half-dozen quality bodegas within a 3 minute walk. There is dry-cleaner directly across the road and Laundromat around the corner.

My son and I had a great experience staying at Martha's lovely apartment last week. Location was excellent - close to the subway and surrounded by fabulous restaurants and shops.The apartment was spotless and stocked with everything you would need for a hassle free vacation. Contrary to a previous review, my son thought the pull-out couch was very comfy (as was the bed that I slept on!).
I will definitely stay here again next time I visit New York. Thank you, Martha!
Our stay at Martha's apartment was flawless. The apartment was really nice and clean. The location of the apartment was very good with easy access to subway any many restaurants, groceries, etc.
Out communication with Martha was really easy and she has made our stay great.
From start to finish - this was a lovely experience. Wonderful and accomodating hostess, quaint but spacious apartment in very hip neighborhood. Close to subway and fab restuarants.
The apartment is better than the pictures! The apartment is spacious, and the bedroom was right out of a catalog! The bed was like sleeping in a cloud! I would definitely recommend staying here!
The apartment was clean, beautiful, and conveniently located in the midst of the vibrant East Village - access to great restaurants, attractions, transportation, etc, including an outstanding juice spot across the street. The host was extremely nice and hospitable. The kitchen is lovely, spacious, and upgraded. However, we were staying at the apartment during the nights, exclusively. The beds were so uncomfortable, it was not pleasant. The main bed is too soft and the pull-out bed was completely impossible to sleep on. My son eventually ended up sleeping on the floor. The sofa is past its prime and was shedding sharp bonded leather bits every time we sat on it, so we tended to avoid using it altogether. Overall it was not a comfortable apartment for us, albeit nice and clean.
In reply to your really untruthful review I must say, you are the ONLY guest to ever say that beds were not comfortable. My reviews speak for themselves and its really hurtful and damaging for you to say such lies about my beds. I left you special bed mattress top for the sofa bed(located under the bed) to make it better to sleep.You NEVER once contacted me to say that you were uncomfortable and did not give me a chance to address the issue. It is really UNFAIR to post such a review as my apartment is the best in East Village. You sir are a liar and nothing else.
Great apartment as described. We had a great time. We come to NYC often and had the perfect East Village experience.
