The Space

I live by myself in a very large apartment (it was originally 4 bedrooms), and I'm looking to use one of them to host nice people.

The Location:
I'm on the Upper West Side, ideally situated between Central Park and Riverside Park (both are amazing and just 3 blocks away). I'm also very close to the Red AND Blue subway lines, which can get you anywhere in the city easily. I'm near Columbia University and Morningside Park (a hidden gem that no one talks about). The area is currently flourishing with new bars and restaurants coming in every month -- just in the past month we've got 2 new micro-brew beer bars, a ramen restaurant, a BBQ joint, a French bakery, and a Peruvian restaurant. And parking on the street is pretty easy too.

The Apartment:
I have a very large apartment by NY standards. There is a nice dining room, a spacious living room with a flatscreen TV, a kitchen that you can use, WIFI, a den with a bar in it (help yourself!), and one clean bathroom.

Your Room:
Queen bed with a nice mattress, AC, your own closet, dresser, desk, and subway map on the wall ;) It's very quiet, which is important in Manhattan.

Guest Access

Everything.

Interaction with Guests

As much or as little as they'd like to.

The Neighborhood

It feels like a real neighborhood. It's quiet with many parks and local restaurants and bars. However, the excitement is just a few minutes away with a subway or taxi. To me, it's the ideal mix of convenient and comfortable.

Getting around

There are many transportation options. 2 subway lines, buses, taxis, and most things are walkable anyway.

  • Me and my 2 daughters stayed for 3 nights at Geoffrey. The apartment is spacious, with a large dinning room. The kitchen has all you need and the bathroom is clean. Although the apartement is in Manhatten, it is quiet there, so you con sleep well. That is realy comfortable for NYC. Geoffrey is friendly, hospitable and uncomplicated. We realy enjoyed our stay. I would like to stay again at this comfortable apartment.
    Wir haben uns bei Geoffrey sehr wohl gefühlt. Diese Unterkunft in Manhatten kann ich nur jedem empfehlen. Eine U-Bahn Station, sowie zahlreiche Restaurants sind schnell zu errreichen.

  • We (3 women in their 30s) had a great time at Geoffreys place and in New York. Everything was very uncomplicated, and Geoffrey is a great host. The apartment is in a very nice neighbourhood, the Metro is close by, as are many restaurants and shops. All three of us had been to New York several times before, but Geoffry recommended some really good restaurants and bars downtown. We checked out a couple of them, and liked them a lot. He even got croissants and orange juice for us on our arrival.

  • If you have been in NY before and stayed in other hotel, you can really appreciate what Geoffery's apartment offers. It is roomy, fully functional, clean, and very conveniently located. It has full kitchen, dinning room, living room, etc. He is also helpful on giving tips doing things in NY.

    I would stay in his place again if I visiting NY. Highly recommended.

  • Geoffrey is the perfect host: in fact, he went out of his way to arrange for my arrival, and his place not only matched the descriptions and reviews but exceeded expectations. It's a tasteful, clean, extremely comfortable apartment in a convenient location. I had an extremely busy schedule and was able to plan and get around to all my appointments with zero fuss. Definitely the best experience I've had to date on AirBnB.

  • I spent one week in Jeoffrey's apartment wth my boyfriend. Everything has been perfect. The house is beautiful, bright, perfectly located and really clean. The room was spaciuos and quite. Jeoffrey has been a very nice host, helpful and ready to give suggestions and informations about the city. We met him few times as he is almost out of the flat all the day. The house is located next to two different metro lines, the neighbourhood is very nice, quite and also rich of restaurants and bars for the night. I would defenetely suggest the apartment for a nice stay in the NY.

  • I really enjoyed my time here with Geoff! We seemed to miss each other quite a lot but he didnt mind me coming and going from the house late at night, and even came prepared with brioche for me when i was suffering from a hangover one morning! Very cool guy. Would highly recommend staying here.

  • Geoff was a very friendly host: there were bagels for us in the fridge, he gave great tips on what to see and do in New York, and was flexible about check-in and check-out times. The apartment is great and the room is neat and spacious as advertised. Definitely recommended!

  • Geoffrey was a very accommodating host, wealth of information, and good company.

    Geoffrey allowed me to check in in the morning, following my redeye to JFK. He waited for me to arrive before he took off for work, and he had a croissant waiting for me upon my arrival.

    The apartment itself was clean and welcoming, and I would stay there again.

About
I grew up in NY, on the Upper West Side, and I'm as passionate about the city as ever. I love sharing all my insider knowledge about NY with people (My friends call me Zagat because I always know what restaurants to hit in any neighborhood). I really enjoy meeting people from other places and from different backgrounds. Despite being a New Yorker, I'm a very laid back guy. I don't spend much time at home (I work long hours and go out a lot) so I figured why not host some nice people. I'm just a regular guy who likes sports, food, wine, art, and music. I think you would find that I'm a good host. I have a very large, comfortable apartment in a great neighborhood. I'm fun, mature, clean, and I love to cook (and I'm always willing to share haha). I'm very attentive, and I can tell you everything you need to know about NY and all the insider tricks. If you have any questions, just let me know!
