About this listing
I have a 1 bedroom apartment with an additional full/double sleeper sofa for you in the living room in the lively, creative Lower East Side. Come share my home on your visit to NYC!
I have a 1 bedroom apartment with a sofa sleeper for you in the living room. The apartment is small, but the area is so amazing you won't want to stay indoors long anyway!
Great nightlife and some of the city's best restaurants are less than a 5 minute walk from here. Several trains as well as the M15 are within a 5 minute radius.
Fully stocked kitchen, linens, blankets, hair dryer, and basic toiletries are all included.
This is an old tenement building so feel free to check out the tenement museum just up the street while you are here! It might explain why the shower is in the kitchen and the entryway is a throwback to the gritty 1980's NYC (trust me - this is the best part of the lower east side charm).
Hope to see you soon!
My home is yours, so please feel free to use the kitchen and fridge and anything else you might find.
Coffee and tea (and any milk you may find in the fridge) are available for your enjoyment, so please enjoy!
Interaction with Guests
If you're up for a tour while here, I can show you some great LES spots. Otherwise, just make yourself at home and enjoy. The best part of paying for a place is zero obligation to entertain your host :-)
What's not to love?? 20 years ago, this neighborhood was the mecca of punk rock. Today, all sorts of galleries, amazing restaurants, and great independent retailers have popped up. Additionally, Thursday - Saturday, this is one of the most popular areas for night life in the city.
The neighborhood itself still looks grimy, but it's safe as ever. The area was gentrified 10 years ago, but residents don't want the punk rock feel to leave just yet. And then there's chinatown 2 blocks away..
The F, M, J, and Z trains are 1 block away. The B and D trains are a 5 minute walk away. Also, there are several buses (particularly the M15 and M15 select) 5 minutes from me.
If coming from JFK, take the airtrain to the J train and get off at Delancey/Essex. If coming from LaGuardia, take the M60 bus to the B train and get off at Grand street.
All 3 airports also have private shuttle buses, which are great if you have extra luggage.
If you'd prefer to take a car service, good luck car service charges the best rates. They are cash or credit, with slightly higher rates for credit card. Rates are as follows: JFK $37 cash, $45 credit; LGA $27 cash $33 credit; EWR $40 cash, $48 credit. (note EWR also has tolls). Their # is (phone number hidden). You will need to reserve the car in advance.
Other Things to Note

About the Host, Michelle
I'm a Manhattanite by day, but taking a break from the city and traveling every chance I get! If I'm not hiking through the catskills, I'm attempting surf at the rockaways, or jetting anywhere I can find a travel special to :-)
