Hi there! I am excited to be renting a large, private room in my 2-bedroom apartment on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, New York City. The apartment is a 2-bedroom with the rooms on opposite sides, so there is plenty of privacy. The bedroom for rent is bright, airy, and has access to a fire escape (for anyone who smokes...). The kitchen (and "bar") is fully equipped (and almost always fully stocked) and you are more than welcome to use anything you find to cook yourself a wonderful dinner or just to grab coffee on your way out for sightseeing.
I am a very easy-going bartender in the city. I love meeting new people and consider myself a sort of "ambassador" of my city. I have lived here for nearly 3 years - long enough to have some insight, but still new enough to enjoy the sights and offer any advice to travelers. I work (email hidden) in the neighborhood, so stop in a grab a drink during your stay.
The neighborhood is great - tons of things to do but still on a quiet block so you can relax after a long day of sightseeing. Below are just a few of the many sights to see nearby my apartment:
-2 blocks from Central Park
-1 block from St. John's Cathedral
-Apollo Theatre in Harlem
-New York Ballet
These are just a few of the many sights that are all either within walking distance or only a few subway stops. I am located 2 blocks away from the 1, B, and C trains which all connect to express lines making it very easy to get anywhere in the city.
I can't wait to hear from you and am happy to answer any questions about the apartment or neighborhood, or New York in general!
I am a fairly laid back person and am pretty open to a lot of things. That being said, I just ask that you use common sense and courtesy when staying in my apartment.
*I do not mind if you smoke while staying here, but please step out onto the fire escape, which is easily accessible from your bedroom.
A great host and a lovely spot for us. It was a good location and lots of restaurants in the neighbourhood.
Emily is a great host! She immediately made us feel welcome at her place and gave us lots of helpful recommendations, e.g. where to eat, what to see etc. The apartment is quite close to Central Park and to two subway stations, so it was a good location for exploring the city. Moreover, an amazing Bagel shop is just a few minutes away, perfect for a quick breakfast. We had a great time in New York and will definitely stay with Emily again if we ever have the chance to come back :-)
We had a great time staying with Emily at her apartment. Emily was a great host and very friendly and communicative about everything, which was nice. The apartment is in a convenient and safe location, only a few blocks away from the subway stations, which made it very easy to get all over Manhattan and Brooklyn.
The apartment was clean and Emily provided us with coffee in the morning which was great. The room was a little small with all of our stuff in there too, but overall it was also great. Emily has a TV and her Netflix set up in the room too, which was really nice of her. We had a fantastic time staying at this apartment and Emily was a lovely host. I would definitely recommend staying here!
Emily is a fantastic host. She was welcoming, helpful and very easy going. When we arrived in New York, she provided a great list of places to visit, from landmarks to restaurants (Jacobs Pickles on Amsterdam, go there, seriously). The apartment itself was fantastic. It was warm, colourful and was in a great neighbourhood. To put it simply, we absolutely recommend staying with Emily if you're planning on visiting New York. You will not regret it.
Staying at Emily's place was great! The space was clean and comfortable and the Upper West Side location was perfect for getting around New York. Emily was very friendly and accommodating and was prompt in her replies when we had any questions and was always lovely to chat the few times we saw her. I would recommend this place to anyone wanting to experience this great city as it makes the perfect base for days out exploring.
Our stay at Emily's was very good.
The apartment is really nice and cozy, you'll feel as you were at your place!
Emily is very friendly, welcoming and moreover she's an awesome cook (just in case you get the chance of tasting one of her home-baked cakes!) :-)
If you decide to stay at her place, take the time to read her helpful advice, hand-written on the little book on the night table!
Emily was wonderful! She was so accommodating and welcoming to me and my husband, making sure our stay was comfortable and enjoyable. She was so helpful and gave us advice for venturing around the city. Her apartment is cozy and inviting and in an excellent location, close to public transportation. We really enjoyed our time there!

Hey there! I am Emily and I have been living in New York for nearly 4 years. I am from Memphis, Tennessee so I love all things Southern (whiskey, whisky, bourbon...). I think being from another area of the country also allows me to open my mind to this crazy city I live in and appreciate all the little things.
I am an events coordinator for 3 restaurants in the city and have big love for the food industry. I can help you find the best restaurants to eat while you're here - just ask!
I love to travel, but because I live in (as my mother often reminds me) "the world's most expensive city," I don't get to as much as I'd like. I love airbnb because it offers me the chance to meet you lovely people so at least if I'm not traveling, I can live vicariously through you.
