About this listing
I have traveled the world. And at all of these places, I have stayed in luxury hotels, B & B's, homestays, and hostels. The commonality in all of these places was that I had a clean place to shower, store my luggage, and sleep.
This is exactly what I have to offer you, including the following:
- An extremely comfortable full-sized bed that fits two people (Pillows and Blankets will be provided)
- Luxury rental building with a doorman, so there is a lot of security
- Floor-to-ceiling windows that have a direct view of the Freedom Tower, the Manhattan Bridge and Downtown Brooklyn
- Access to the building amenities include a gym, basketball court, swimming pool, and parking
- Washer/Dryer in the apartment
- Open kitchen, cable TV, and wireless internet
- 5-minute walk to almost all of the NYC subway lines: A, C, 2, 3, 4, 5, F, R, Q, B, D subway lines (20 minutes to Times Square in Manhattan)- one stop away from Chinatown in Manhattan.
- I will also be living in the apartment, but I have my own separate bedroom.

James was a great host and tijd is all about the interesting restaurant in new york
His appartment was clean and had a beautiful view over manhattanbridge and downtown Manhattan
We would surely come back
James was a fantastic host. He was helpful from the beginning to suggest places to eat and visit. He was informative whilst also letting us carry on with our pre-made plans. James is a good conversationalist whilst also allowing us to have our own space. We enjoyed our stay at his flat and we would strongly recommend this AirBnB to anyone who is looking for a good location with easy transport links in New York City.
James was an absolutely fantastic host, he was warm and welcoming (even looking after us when we fell sick on the trip). When we arrived he gave us a tutorial on using the subway and loads of places to eat and drink.
He was thoughtful and highly enjoyable to spend time with. I didn't feel that we lacked privacy at any time in our stay due both to his respect for personal space and his working hours.
The flat itself is fantastic, with a comfortable bed and great facilities (rain style power shower for example) as well as a kitchen, lifts air-con etc.
The views from the room are great, with a good view of the south end of Manhattan and the bridges - it was awesome seeing night fall over the city from the apartment.
The roof provides perhaps the best view of Manhattan I have seen (having done the rock and empire state) as it has incredible panoramic views from just over the Manhattan bridge. This is however more a once off than a continuous public area.
The local transport is great with DeKalb avenue taking you to soho in no time at all and beyond with great connecting stops.
The neighbourhood feels very safe and has DUMBO which is fantastic for brunch and hanging out etc.
I would go back time and time again if money could afford. Providing you are willing to partially share your space this is a brilliant location to stay.
It was my (and my girlfriend) first trip with Airbnb and I cannot imagine a better host. James is a very nice and helpful person - he gave us lots of information about NY like what and where to eat (yes, he`s really good at it:), where to go, what to visit etc. His apartment is very comfortable and luxurious with a wonderful view on Manhattan. The place is also great because of its localization - near the subway entrances from which you can get almost everywhere, Fresh Market in its neighborhood etc. We had a splendid time and without any doubts wolud like to visit James again.
My son, Parker stayed at this property. Here is his review:
"James was a very accommodating host. When I arrived he took time to help orient me in Brooklyn and suggest places to eat and to see. I felt very welcome! He even made me tea and offered me medicine when he realized I was sick. Despite the space I paid for being in his living room, I never felt intruded upon or like I was intruding. James has a good understanding of how to make a guest feel comfortable and at ease, and his place is worth the price. Thank you James!"
James is a kind host, we felt very welcome at his place. His house is very tidy and James was very relaxed and open. He provided us with some good tips in the area.
His house is conveniently located with subway lines going all places and citibikes in front of the door.
This was my first airbnb experience, and it was excellent! James' place is a great spot. Close to a main-line subway, exceptional views, super-clean and tidy. I couldn't ask for more!
James is also a fantastic host, who was keen to share his recommendations for great food, knowledge of the city and handy insight into what to do and where to go.
About the Host, James
Originally from Los Angeles, I moved to NYC for school. I graduated 4 years ago, and currently I am a full-time professional. I enjoy traveling, but I have called New York my home for 7 years. I also enjoy food. By staying with me, you're not only getting a place to rest and a place to keep your luggage, but you are also getting a tour guide. I love NYC, and I will be here to assist you with any questions about the city.
Je suis originaire de Los Angeles, j’ai demenagé a New York pour mes etudes que j’ai fini il y a trois ans et maintenant je travaille a plein temps. J’adore voyager mais ma nouvelle maison est maintenant New York depuis cinq ans! J’aime aller manger. En restant chez moi, vous n’aurrez pas seulement qu’un endroit pour dormir mais egalement un guide, je vous donnerai tous mes meilleurs conseils! J’adore New York, je réponderai au mieux a toutes vos interrogations concernant la ville. Merci de m’ écrire en anglais une amie m’a aidé a ecrire ce texte.
