This is a private room with a queen bed in the hip, bohemian enclave of the East Village. An awesome location for exploring the city, NYC's best restaurants & bars, live-music and seeing how NYer's live.
Best for budget travelers and who do not need luxuries, just a place to sleep and keep things. It is in a three bedroom BASEMENT apartment with shared bathroom & kitchen. At the moment, two of the three rooms are travelers.

Interaction with Guests
There will be limited interaction with the hosts (Dennis and myself), since our schedules vary. I will make your stay as comfortable as possible, and love to chat with fellow travelers.
Enjoy great food, music, unique shops, night-life and a relaxed vibe in the East Village. Located just two blocks from Tompkins Square Park. The East River Park is close by and has jogger/bikers' path and a beautiful skyline of the city night and day.
Best thing about living here is you can walk everywhere!
There is a bus stop and Citi Bike station right around the corner. 5 different subway stations in the neighborhood. Within 15-30 minutes you can walk to Soho, South Street Seaport, Brooklyn Bridge, and LES, Chinatown/Little Italy.

Make yourself at home.

Feel free to use the kitchen but please clean up after yourself.
Do not bring strangers back to the apartment. It is for guests only.
Do not smoke inside the apartment. Please smoke outside of the building.
Do not make loud noise when outside in the courtyard as voices echo and can cause complaints from neighbors.
Edward' place is in a great location not far from the metro to reach "uptown" and "downtown" in a very short time. The apartment, however, is not very quiet, lots of noise from neighbors. But, it is functional and clean, the room is simple but practical. Overall, I'm quite satisfied with the value for money. Bedding is very good, and Edward provides towels, shampoo and shower gel, big plus! Thank U !
Everything went great, the basement is cozy and the bed is comfortable. The neighborhood has a lot of life, specially in the night.
Great room and great price! The location was perfect for us and near lots of cool restaurants and bars. East Village was the perfect spot for our New Years celebrations. Edward was very helpful and answered all of our questions. The room was clean and cosy and the bed was very comfortable.
Edward was a great host. He was responsive to questions and very helpful in resolving any issues that came up. A friend and I visited for a week from Texas and stayed in one of the three bedrooms. The other two rooms were rented out to 4 others. There is a shared bathroom that is small. The cleanliness was satisfactory but there may have been a cockroach infestation as we saw more roaches than we cared to count in the kitchen area and bathroom.
Eric was great communicating with me, and made me feel welcome from the beginning. It is a small and cozy room, and is great for the price - and the central location. This is a great place for someone who spends most of their time out of the apartment!
I'm very glad I stayed at this place, had an amazing time here. very good price and the lower East village is a great neighbourhood to stay in, it's close to everything and safe. The bedroom is big enough for 2 people and the bed is very comfortable and big. Edward is friendly, helpful and quick to return messages if you need to contact him. I highly recommend staying at this place.
Edward is a great guy and he is an inspiring actor. Which is awesome to meet. His place is cheap and Edward supplies everything! From the room to bath towels. There are also extra shower stuff supplied, but this was my first time using AirBNB, I ended up using my own stuff. Great place. There are plenty of places to eat and drink! You are 10 minute walk away from LES. You are smack in the middle of Alphabet City, and few minutes away from St. Mark's Place. I will highly consider this place for a budget and enjoy the night life.
