The apartment is in a pre-war building located on Leroy St (at the intersection of Leroy and Bleeker) in a prime West Village location in the heart of downtown Manhattan. It is relatively small (as are all West Village apartments), and it is a 5th floor walk-up (this means that it is actually 4 flights from the street). There is tons of natural light and also roof access, which is great during the summer. (**Make sure to read the note at the bottom before renting**)
The apartment is located in the West Village's most famous shopping and dining area, filled with some of the best restaurants and boutique shopping in the city. The West Village is home to 14 Michelin Star restaurants including 7 within 6 blocks of the apartment. My apartment is very quiet – it does not face the street, so you don’t have any of the city noise. It is right around the corner from Washington Sq. Park and within short walking/subway distance to every major area in the city. Also, if it gives you an idea of the feel of the neighborhood, it is just steps from the apartments/buildings featured in the shows Friends and Sex and the City (which seem to be local attractions for many people).
ABOUT ME: I work in finance, so my work hours can vary greatly. I am very quiet, I don't party, and I will rarely have guests. I'm very friendly and look forward to meeting you!
**I will be traveling a lot over the next few months, so if you rent this room, there is a good chance that there will be other renters renting my bedroom during the same time. If you are uncomfortable sharing a bathroom or common space with other travelers on Airbnb, then this might not be the best accommodation for you. I just wanted anyone renting to understand this so that no one rents the room under false pretense. You will still have plenty of privacy in your bedroom, but you will potentially be sharing common space with other travelers. If you're open to meeting new people and having a comfortable, quiet bedroom though, you'll really enjoy the apartment and the surrounding neighborhood!
Once booked, please send me your travel itinerary. You’ll get a set of keys, so you can enter and leave the apartment as you please.
BED: Queen size. Clean sheets and towels will be provided (of course!).
KITCHEN: Full kitchen with all major appliances, microwave, oven, gas stove, blender, etc.
ORIENTATION: There is a large bedroom window and two large windows in the living room, which provide lots of natural light and morning sunshine. There are polished wooden floors, an air conditioning unit for the bedroom, a clean bathroom, and a comfortable living area.
OTHER: TV and wifi are provided. I am also happy to provide any local restaurant, shopping, or sight-seeing recommendations. There are a lot of tourist traps in NYC, and I love directing people to some of the more unique spots in the city.
TRANSPORTATION – The apartment is 2 blocks from the 1, A, C, E, and B, D, F, M lines, which will connect you to any location in New York City.

Please respect this apartment as if it were your own. If there is anything you require before arriving, please let me know, and I will do my best to accommodate.
NYC streets are pretty dirty, so after entering the apartment, please remove your shoes - I want to try to keep the apartment as clean as possible for myself and my guests!
There is no smoking in the apartment, but the roof is only one floor above, and you are welcome to smoke there.
I look forward to meeting you upon arrival. This neighborhood is the most beautiful in the city, so just ask if you would like me to recommend restaurants and other things to do.
I was in NYC for a week for a work trip and this apartment was perfect! It was close to the subway plus had great restaurants right down the street. It was spacious, and I loved being able to sit down after a long day and enjoy the place and cook dinner. The apartment was extremely clean and I would highly recommend this apartment if you're looking for a trendy, perfectly located apartment for your stay in the city!
Place was amazing! Couldnt have been more well suited for my needs. Easily located in the West Village and extremely convenient to get to any other part of the city. Did not meet Davis but he was very communicative for all of my needs, when any arose. Would certainly stay again!
My husband and I had a great time staying at Davis' place! Great location, close to many fab restaurants, warm in the apartment (always a good thing in winter), clean, honestly it was everything we needed. He was very easy to communicate with, even though he wasn't in town. We def recommend staying at his place.
Davis' apartment is centrally located in the West Village, which makes it very easy to come and go. The place was cozy and clean, and Davis was VERY responsive when there was trouble with the key and entry upon arrival.t This is a great little apartment with interesting books on the shelves. We would return if he would have us on our next visit to NY.
The apartment was tidy and clean towels were provided for us. The place (especially the washroom) is small but that was to be expected. The location is great! A couple minutes walking to Greenwich Village and a lot of nice restaurants, bars, etc. We felt safe in the area and in the building. Overall was a good place to stay.
Séjour agréable dans cette appartement très bien placé, à proximité du métro et dans un cartier typique avec commerce et resto

I'm originally from Atlanta, and I have been living in NYC for the past couple of years. I used to work for a nonprofit as a high school English teacher, and now I work in finance. I enjoy film, literature, art, great restaurants, rock climbing, and travel. One of the things I enjoy most is sharing travel stories and recommendations with new people. I'm always interested in planning my next big trip!
