Quaint, "artsy" 3BR apartment in the middle of it all: the bustling East Village, NYC! Amazing neighborhood and prime location for the spring. Two busy, but friendly roommates, so plenty of privacy & space to yourself!
Live like a New Yorker, in the heart of the East Village & Union Square! Plenty of privacy & space to do your own thing; even though there are other housemates, schedules are so crazy it will be like you've got a place to yourself!
Bohemian, artsy apartment in a 1913 brownstone building with character and charm! Located in the middle of it all just between the hopping East Village and energetic Union Square, the apartment is a cozy, peaceful refuge in the heart of one of the BEST downtown areas in NYC! Convenient walking distance to the hip Lower East Side, beautiful Washington Square Park/NYU, trendy Soho and Noho and so much more! Just around the block from the 1st Ave. L-train (crosstown subway at 14th Street), the access to the westside and Brooklyn is unbeatable! Union Square (4/5/6 and N/Q/R trains) is an 8 minute walk away.
During spring/summer, this is a prime neighborhood to be in - steps away from everything! The East River promenade, quiet cafes, Union Square Greenmarket, Tompkins Square park, amazing al fresco restaurants, Trader Joe's/Whole Foods, shopping and unique boutiques...I could go on and on.
The apartment: fully furnished living room, kitchen, large (email hidden) artsy, shabby chic vibe about the space! I'm a filmmaker, writer and amateur photographer, so I feel my bohemian, laid-back spirit hopefully infuses the space! Colorful, unique and quirky is the general vibe!
As for the space - I will be living there, as well and generally keep a guest-free, very predictable and calm atmosphere! I'm a graduate student so definitely keep an environment conducive to peace, quiet, studying and getting away from the stresses of the outside world after a long day. I cook quite a bit every evening...TRYING to save a little cash! I keep a pretty routine schedule and won't bother you at all - I'm friendly and welcome you to make yourself comfortable, but am very busy with my school and personal obligations so am usually pretty much in my own world. I don't entertain in the apartment and would expect the guests do their socializing outside of the apartment, as well.
There are two bedrooms available - either individually or as a pair (bedroom and office space, for example); if together there is alternative pricing. The bedroom is furnished simply, with a full sized bed. A dresser is optional and there is a closet, as well.
Ideally looking for longer term Airbnb'ers, but open to any respectful, quiet, responsible people who are looking for a peaceful, predictable space to stay!!
Bathroom, private bedroom, living room area, kitchen/refrigerator, delivery services galore!!!
Minimal interaction...if you like privacy & ideally like living alone, this is a perfect option. I keep very to myself & have a pretty hectic schedule that keeps me out & about for long hours!
Yes - easy access to crosstown & Brooklyn-bound trains, uptown/downtown trains, buses, and walkable to all major necessities (grocery, laundry, etc)
PRIVATE bedroom, bathroom, kitchen.
Two roommates live in the apartment, but keep very busy and separate schedules/lives. Friendly, but anticipate MINIMAL interaction and socializing with housemates.
The East Village has EVERYTHING you could need/want! Great restaurants, coffee shops and sidewalk cafes, boutiques, street food vendors...plus...the electric, creative energy of a truly artsy, hip neighborhood! I love it's walkability - perfect for strolls and people-watching in the springtime!
YES! It's incredibly conveniently-located to a LOT of public transportation:
- L-train (crosstown on 14th Street) that takes you West side and to Brooklyn in minutes.
- Crosstown buses on 14th Street
- 4/5/6 trains (uptown/downtown on the East side) and N/Q/R trains from Union Square...an 8 minute walk away.
- 1st, 2nd, 3rd Avenue uptown/downtown buses.
- CitiBike stations all around the East Village (pay as you go, rental bikes).
Kristin was very accommodating and friendly. The room was comfortable and clean. My Boston Terrier and I had a very enjoyable stay and would stay again.
Kristen is a great host and a great person. She is very conscientious and thoughtful as a roommate, but easy going and flexible at the same time. I had a flight delay on my check-in day and she was super helpful and accommodating. Her place is very well kept, neat and surprisingly quiet in such a busy neighborhood.
Speaking of which - the neighborhood is awesome, with endless great restaurants and bars, and right on the L train in case you need to get your Brooklyn on. Bottom line: you will not find a better deal for the location and quality of room and roommate on airbnb.
Last but not least, her dog Buddy is also a great roommate - quiet and unimposing, and also the sweetest boxer I have ever met.
