A private bedroom in an eclectic 3 bedroom loft apartment in an old warehouse. Very close to lots of great bars, venues, shop, restaurants and activities in Williamsburg and Greenpoint, and just 30 minutes to central Manhattan. Best for laid back younger guests. It's a bit dusty from being by the highway, so it's not for everyone.

The space

Hi there!

Available for short term stay is ONE of three separate small private rooms, each about 90 SF, with full bed mattresses lofted above the floor with some short steps up. There is a roof with some chairs and a good view of the Manhattan skyline.

It's very near delis, fun bars, really great restaurants, awesome pizza, a nice cafe, 15 minute walk or 5 minute b24 bus ride to the Graham L subway stop and 15 minute walk to the Nassau G, and 30 minutes total travel time to Union Square. That is a central subway hub. From there you can get to Times Square, Grand Central, Chinatown, and Wall Street area in 5-10 minutes, or the major museums in 15 minutes.

It is a 15-20 minute walk to Williamsburg, a very nice Brooklyn area with many great shops, restaurants, bars and a huge music scene. There are free transfers between the buses and trains. Also it's right off the Morgan exit of the BQE/395, which makes it a 10 minute, $20 dollar cab ride from LaGuardia and 20 minute $40 ride from JFK.

This is in a big 1,200 SF loft with 12 Foot ceilings, hard wood floors, fridge, microwave, shower(shared, across the hall, through my kitchen), 2 half bathrooms, a couch, recliner, kitchen table, and wifi. There's a lot of big windows, and great light during the day!

I'll provide clean sheets and towels.

The space is a converted warehouse space with rooms built out above a hardware store and next to a gas station. It's pretty quiet other than the constant whooshing of the highway nearby, which is not an issue for most people. It's kind of like the ocean waves! When the windows are all closed, it's hardly noticeable. The rooms do not lock, but the apartment itself is behind a series of three locked doors.

It's right across the street from a nice residential neighborhood with all your needs.

Sometimes there's band practice or recording across the hall, but it's rarely noticeable in the bedrooms, and not very loud in the living room. I have them cut it out by 11 or so weekdays, and a little later on weekends.

There's a full fridge, a double hotplate, a toaster oven, pots and pans, and salt and pepper for all your basic cooking needs.

There's also a teapot and tea, and a coffee machine and coffee, for your morning rituals.

There is a TV and a projector to watch movies on VHS, Blu-Ray, DVD, and Netflix! I have a pretty big and varied collection. Also I have a nice record player, and a pretty good collection of Records and CDs. There's an input to connect your iPod or other MP3 player to. There's a piano to play also, if you're so musically inclined!

I live in the building, so I'll be around pretty often if you need anything.

There are no animals here, nor are they allowed.

Street parking is plentiful, right in front, safe and free.

Available by the day, week or month for a couple months. If your dates don't look available on the calendar, please inquire, as I have multiple rooms, and this system is sometimes inaccurate. Please read and follow the rules. Hope to talk soon!

Guest access

Minimal but functional kitchen, 2 half bathrooms and one with a shower across the hall. Roof access with seating. Living room with stereo, records, CDs, TV, Videos and Netflix. Lots of books and graphic novels.

Interaction with guests

I live across the hall, so I usually stick to myself except for check-in, though if I'm not too busy, I'm often up for a beer around the corner!

Clean your dishes before you go to bed or go out.

Any food trash goes in the small trash next to the sink, and recycling all goes in the big black can next to the fridge.

No tobacco smoking inside. You can smoke out front or on the roof. In the extreme cold, the top of the stairs should be fine.

If you go to the roof, prop the hallway and roof doors open. When you leave, shut them both. The front roof door can be tricky..

Please put CDs and records back in their cases!

Leave the keys inside the bedroom when you leave.

Great place to stay. Ten minutes from Graham ave station, which is very convenient. Also, there are great places to eat and have a drink around the area. I definitely recommend this place.

Andrea is super amicable. Upon my arrival, he showed me a tour of the warehouse and gave me a beer. I actually lost my keys the first night there so I crashed at a friend's place and the next day I met him for brunch and then paid for new keys to be made. He was very patient and lenient. He made sure I was comfortable. My only (and biggest) issue was the dust. There was like a thin film of dust coating the bedroom. My allergies are really terrible but luckily I had allergy meds on me. I think the place could use a deep clean cuz even on meds I coughed up a lung. One day it was really hot and I wanted to turn on the fan but I could see it was coated with dust so I just opened the windows instead and saw dust on my hands after lifting the window open.

I loved Andrea's place. It felt super homey and cozy. The room was quite small, but I loved it regardless. The bed and sheets were really nice and the kitchen was well-stocked with pots, pans, etc. The unit is in a converted warehouse, which means high ceilings and open layout but also means temperature swings. In the room and common area, there are heaters and fans to combat that, though. The apartment is right next to a freeway but that didn't bother me too much. Of all the Airbnb's that I've stayed at in NYC, this is the only one that I would seek out to stay in again.

Andrea was so friendly and welcoming. I felt like I was visiting a family member. There was plenty of space, multiple bathrooms, he even has a amazon fire stick with netflix and prime hooked up to the flat screen. A stereo system with an aux chord if you're into playing music while your cooking or whatever. Each room was private per guest with our own couch/futon and bed. Although we brought our own towels and toiletries he had those available per guest. There was access to the rooftop where we could smoke. Wouldn't have minded seeing more of him just because our first encounter was so great but there was plenty of privacy which I really liked. I've seen reviews on other airbnbs and I've read of some sketchy things hosts have done. I would highly recommend this to everyone especially international or business travelers.

Andrea is an amazing host. He's quick to respond, the perfect guide, and willing to come keep two travelers new to the city some company and show us around town. while the outside of the place is not the most appealing, the interior is amazing (large space kept very clean and organized). If you want to stay in, he's got you covered. If you want to to out, it is a bit of a walk to get to places or the subway, but that's all manageable. An awesome place to stay while in NYC.
