About this listing
Large furnished private bedroom available in NYC! Located in a beautiful brownstone in Chelsea on one of the most sought after tree lined blocks in Manhattan. You will be sharing a kitchen and dining room with me and my family. There is a beautiful tiled bathroom with shower dedicated to your use.
DISCLAIMER: If you are looking for a traditional B&B or a cheaper version of a hotel room, this may not be right for you. It is an old building with old fixtures and furniture, some of it a bit dog-eared. We are an Arts institute which hosts visiting artists in our family home, and sublets the extra bedrooms when visiting artists are not in residence. The townhouse also has a studio for classes screenings and readings, and a film production office.
(This listing is for the upstairs bedroom- for the private apartment, check out Presence Studio Apt).
This historic artistic residence has hosted such luminaries as Tennessee Williams, Miles Davis and Allen Ginsberg.

About the Host, Tony
I grew up in Chelsea, in the townhouse where you will be staying. I live on site with my wife, Poet Lee Ann Brown, and our daughter Miranda. I am an actor and director in both film and theater, and run a school for actors and directors that also is based here in our townhouse.
