You will really appreciate the safety, comfort and convenience of staying in my apartment. I live in a very clean and modern apartment that is quiet and relaxing. This area is very cool and there are lot's of cafés, bars, and shops all around.
SEMI PRIVATE stay, sleep while using my Shoji Screen room divider.
The most spectacular view of Manhattan!!!! You need to see it.
Also I've decided to rent to ladies only.
This is a great spot for the independent traveller that is out exploring the city during the day, I work from home so appreciate privacy by 10:00 am at the latest! I did change around the furniture a little so the pic of the living room is a little different.
***There is a big shoji screen for your privacy while you sleep****
Since I work from home it's understood that I need privacy for work during normal business hours. Therefore I appreciate my guests to be out sight seeing by no later than 10:00am and to return after 6pm. Weekends are not as strict, you can leave a little later and return home during day to drop of shopping/change for going out at night. But I am always here to answer any questions if you need anything while you are exploring. If you need tips or what to see while visiting, I can help with that too.
Hot water kettle for tea and fridge for storing snacks.

Other Things to Note
You're stay here also helps me with funding for my design brand. It's a benefit to both of us, I provide a clean and safe place for an affordable price, and your stay here helps me pay for all the materials I need to buy! Pretty cool?!
Please do not wear shoes inside the apartment, take them off as soon as you enter.
Smoking isn't allowed on Balcony.
I recycle, so any plastic bottles, paper, metal can be rinsed and recycled.
I also re-use shopping bags.
Everyday when you leave the apartment, just fold up the sheets etc and put on one corner of couch, and fold back shoji screen. I'll show you how.
Please don't hesitate to ask for tips on bars, restaurants etc...!

Her place is very clean and the couch is very comfortable. Plus the view is breathtaking.
If you're looking for a place to make you feel part of this city, this is definitely the place to be.
This was my first time with airbnb and i had a really good experience!
Christine was very nice and welcoming the moment I walked in! Great apartment with really cool professional art work around her studio!
Couch was very comfortable and the view of the East Village was awesome to wake up to.
Christine is a nice host and she respect the guest privacy. the place is cozy and very convenient which is really important to me. This is my first time using Airbnb and I got a good experience!
Christine's apartment is very clean and well organized. I'm visiting New York University so the location is perfect for me . And this is a modern apartment with fantastic view. U might need to walk about 15min to the subway but it's ok for me coz I quite enjoy walking. Once u reach the subway u could visit almost anywhere in Manhattan.
Christine is an awesome hostess, warm and chill, ready to help but always respecting each other's space. She's resourceful and makes you feel at home. I love the place - it is conveniently located and has a magnificent view of Manhattan. Great price indeed, and I especially like the fact that it is super clean. Highly recommend.
I had a wonderful 6 nights stay at Christine's place. She was an excellent host - very friendly, helpful and flexible on everything. I felt immediately at home at her place. She had great tips on places to visit, coffee shops and restaurants.
East Village itself is very cool neighborhood. It has a number of restaurants, cafes and boutiques for more and less exclusive tastes. It's also very conveniently located and the closest L train will take you in few minutes to Williamsburg or Chelsea.
I would definitely recommend staying at Christine's place to anyone. Thanks Christine for superb hosting and welcome to Helsinki anytime!

I LOVE this city and so happy that you will get to see it! I truly enjoy being an airbnb host because I know how hard NYC can be to travel to. It's sad that there aren't enough options for people to stay on the cheap, so I'm happy to offer my place to make it a little easier. I travel all over the world and know how nice it is to feel comfortable and safe where you sleep, I'm lucky to provide that! I'm a designer, runner, and avid cook. I've lived here 16 years, but grew up a few miles away (could not wait to live here to attend college!)
