The Space

Large very sunny studio apartment at Elizabeth between Spring and Prince in NoLita. If you like baths, and don't mind 5 flights this is the place for you.

I've been renting this apartment for over 5 years, it's a great find so book quickly. Special winter rates available.

It is a zen space because it is quiet, sunny and simple. It is smack - right in the middle of a GREAT street and neighborhood, a perfect place to relax after your New York adventures, and you have the whole place to yourself. Check out the 'street view' to see the sculpture garden just across the street.

I am a New York artist and teacher, I have a couple of pieces of art in the apartment. Your booking this apartment directly supports the arts.

Studio with built-in kitchen. The apartment is in a historic tenement building, and is fully renovated, clean and very sunny and has red floors. It still has the original working (extremely comfortable) bathtub in the kitchen! The bath has a shower head attached to the bath tub.

Includes queen bed, day bed, A/C, stove, small fridge, oven, FREE WIFI internet connection (for your laptop) and lots of space. It is a 5 floor walk up (no elevator), and very quiet. You can see the New Museum from the window and plenty of sky.

Kitchen supplies, linens and towels included.
Sleeps 1, 2 or 3..  behaved children. No pets, no smoking, no TV in the flat.

I live close by in the East Village. If you're interested (email hidden), or bicycle tour of the city I would be glad to spend my time with you, when I have some, and show you the highlights of the city or escort you to some destinations. I am a member of MoMA, PS1, and Dixon Place Theatre.

About the neighborhood...
Elizabeth Street is in the NoLita (North of Little Italy) area, and has plenty of unique shopping, restaurants nice bars. My favorite restaurants include Cafe Gitane (hangout for models, artists, and great food and excellent coffee), and Cafe Habana feet away from our front door.

The original St. Patricks Church is right across from Cafe Gitane. (Featured in the film Gangs of New York by Martin Scorsese). Try to see this film before arriving - you will recognize some of the buildings! There is also the Tenement Museum close by. It focuses on America's urban immigrant history, and is a wild look into how people lived and worked in New York in the turn of the century.

The apartment is on a beautiful street, very close to the Bowery, East Village, SoHo, Chinatown, and has many subways in a few blocks including the B,D,F,V to Broadway-Lafayette | 6 to Spring St. | J,M to Bowery. It is very easy to get uptown and to Brooklyn. You can walk over the Manhattan or Brooklyn Bridge too, just about 1/2 an hour stroll away.

Close to the Broadway/Lafayette subway station and Spring Street no. 6 train in Manhattan. Plenty of shopping and restaurants, a 5 minute walk to Chinatown, SoHo, Lower East Side.

Thank you for looking! - Joseph

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Joseph was a great host- he was waiting for us when we arrived (and flexible on the arrival time), and was very welcoming and friendly. His place is, for me at least, in the best location possible- close to all the subway trains, close to Chinatown, and in the beautiful and not too hectic neighborhood of Nolita.

  • Josephs apartment was a great place for our stay in New York. We stayed there for ten days. It was quite, clean and very comfortable, we found everything we needed. We also loved the surrounding neighbourhood with lots of nice restaurants and shops.
    Joseph was very kind and helpful. The communication with him was uncomplicated. We definitely would stay at his place again. Thank you so much!

  • Joseph's apartment was sunny, quiet, and very comfortable. We slept so well! Also, the location is absolutely ideal if you enjoy great food, good art, and interesting boutiques.

    Joseph was very warm and welcoming, and was really easy to get in touch with when we had questions (or needed restaurant recommends!) He's also a really talented artist.

    We'll definitely be back.

  • This is a great apartment in a great location. Host Joseph is a very kind person and was very helpful and available to answer a heap of my inquiries from where to get a good coffee to the location of the nearest swimming pool! The apartment is located in what is a very happening part of Manhattan. There are loads of old established and iconic eateries as well as the new wave of fashion designers, cafes, etc. It was a great spot for me to start my NYC adventure!

  • I stayed at joseh's lovey 'roomy' apt for three nights in march. I would not hesitate to visit again in a few months but I will certainly bring my sweetie, he would love it! Very clean, unique artistic details, super cozy and quiet, a great bed, lots of light and a fantastic location above an incredible barber shop. Lots of cafes, galleries, boutiques, with chinatown and little italy just steps away. Very cool!
