Description

The space

This is a fully-furnished but minimalist-looking loft space in a converted textile factory. I've retained the industrial character of the original space while providing the comforts you're used to at home--leather couch, comfortable bed, flatscreen with satellite, Wi-Fi. And unlike other buildings, the apartment has its own hot-water boiler, so you're not going to run out of hot water in the shower, no matter when you want to use it.

The space can sleep 4 people; there is one full-size bed, and I also have a full-size, full-height air mattress I will set up if your party is more than 2. Setting up the air mattress makes the bedroom a bit tight, but it can be moved into the other room if you prefer.

Guest access

You have full access to everything in the apartment.

Use our enormous Map Wall to plan your day's itinerary. The apartment is dead-center between SoHo, Nolita and Chinatown, so you can find cool stuff in every direction. I've covered the map in dry-erase coating, so I can mark whatever you need to find--ATMs, subway stations, good chow spots, Citibike stations, public bathrooms with no line, et cetera. Or you can mark it up yourself to plan routes and destinations of your own. Even if you have a bad sense of direction, I can provide clear directions to ensure you never get lost--and I'm always just a phone call or a knock away.

Leather couch and easy chair, for when you want to plop down in front of the flatscreen and watch satellite TV.

Full-size bed in the bedroom, and for a second bed we've got a full-size, full-height airbed I can set up for you.

The kitchen has your standard microwave, burners, coffeemaker, electric kettle for you tea-drinkers, and of course a full-sized refrigerator; but I doubt you'll be cooking once you see the amazing range of takeout, delivery and dine-in options the neighborhood has to offer!

The dining table is expandable and will seat 4-8 people.

You control the temperature, in case you're one of those folks that gets hot or cold easily; the thermostat is right on the wall, so you're not at the mercy of someone else's temperature choices. Crank up the heat, or the A/C, to wherever you like it.

Interaction with guests

The apartment is all yours and fully private; I stay out of your way to give you privacy, but I'm immediately available (in another unit in the building) if you need anything. When you want recommendations, advice or suggestions on anything at all, just drop me a line and I'm there for you. Otherwise, I don't stick my head in unless I'm asked for.

The neighborhood

Located at the epicenter of SoHo, Nolita and Chinatown, this location is a shopping, dining and NYC-access paradise. Whether you're on a tight budget or looking to throw some cash around, you can find whatever you need within mere blocks--and sometimes on the same block! If you don't trust your guidebook, copy of Time Out or Yelp reviews, ask me and I'll help you find what you're looking for--while steering you clear of the tourist traps. Again, native New Yorker here!

Getting around

The subway is just two blocks away, both north and south of here. If you prefer taxis, the side entrance of the building puts you directly on Centre Street--a major taxi thoroughfare. Prefer to bike? There's a Citibike station just one block away. Rather walk? You can hit Broadway, SoHo, NoLita, Little Italy, Chinatown in less than 3 blocks, depending on which direction you head in. If you're willing to go further, Tribeca, the Village and the East Village are 7-10 blocks away. And if you've got a ZipCar membership, there's a ZipCar lot just one block away.

Other things to note

Whenever I travel, I like to know where I'm going to eat and drink! If you're looking for cheap eats, in the same building as the apartment is a Thai restaurant and the last NYC-style diner-coffee shop in the area. If you want cappuccino or fancier coffee in the mornings, there's a high-end coffee shop right next door, plus there are nearby Starbucks in three directions. For those with more refined taste, right across the street is a French restaurant and a Chilean wine shop.

There's a killer Scotch bar just one block east; a fantastic brunch spot one block north; the world's cheapest Chinese food buffet, one block south. Or start your morning with a cafe au lait and croissant at Balthazar, just two blocks north.

Need authentic-style NYC pizza? Little Italy starts one block away. (Ask me where to go so you don't get suckered by the fake, overpriced stuff.)

As for shopping, Broadway and SoHo's reputations speak for themselves--you can find everything under the sun just blocks from the apartment, so you can keep dropping stuff off and using the bathroom if you're on a spree. The clothing and shoe stores alone would take up more space than I can fit here.

If you need unique souvenirs that can't be found back home, ask me and I'll help you find shops that have the perfect gifts.

One last thing I need to be clear about--the last photo you see up above, the Beaux Arts building exterior, is the Police Department from 1909 (now converted to luxury condos). That is *not* this building, that is the building across the street! That building is the view that you see outside the windows of this apartment--and it's gorgeous.


House Rules

Please treat the apartment the same way you'd treat your own house! No muddy boots up on the leather couch, no parties, and please don't superglue my furniture to the stamped-tin 11-foot ceilings. (You see what I did there?) Also there's no smoking or drugs allowed, and you'll have to leave Fido and Fifi at home. Thanks for your consideration!

Fantastic location, close and walkable to all the great parts of the city. A chance to stay in a roomy, well-lit loft in Soho.

This loft is in a great location, right between the upper part of Chinatown and Little Italy. There's free parking on Sundays, otherwise you're parking in a nearby paid facility if you have a car. It's not quiet, the street noise is considerable. The air conditioner rather starkly turns off and on, if you don't sleep well with noise you'll want to bring earplugs you can sleep in. The kitchenette and bath are extremely basic, no frills. The floor is painted plywood. It's roomy enough for three or four people, although note that you're all sharing the same room aside from the bathroom. Nicholas was super with advice, meeting us on arrival, and being generous with our checkout time. The entryway is typical New York - that is, not fancy, it's basically an iron door leading to a staircase with a cage entrance at the top of the first flight of steps. No big deal for us, but just be aware that it's a walk-up, not a hotel. Overall, was a great base for us and Nicholas was terrific.

We really enjoyed our stay in Nolita apt. The service and local tip from Nicholas was worth everything. 10 point! Really liked the apartment, both style and size for a family with two teenagers. We will for sure be back! THANKS!

Upon arriving Nic met us at the door and helped take our bags up the stairs, he then showed us to our apartment and took time to mark various places on his large map that would be useful during our trip. The place itself was very clean and a perfect location, in short distance to amazing food, great shopping, and just in general a nice place in the city. Australian coffee shop right below the apartment was great every morning. Would absolutely recommend staying here.
