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 built in the year 1900, 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, iron, A/C, good heat, stove and oven, small fridge, WIFI internet connection (for your laptop) and lots of open space. It is a 5 floor walk up (no elevator), and very quiet. You can see the 'New Museum' ($2 Thrusdays from 7 p.m.–9 p.m.) 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.
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.
Here are 3 of my favorite live music places in the lower east side, a ten minute walk:
the Mercury Lounge
Thank you for looking! - Joseph
History, live music, plenty of restaurants and shopping.
no smoking, no loud parties... just be adult.
Joseph was such a wonderful host. Very kind and helpful. The apartment is in a great location and I hope to stay again the next time that I am in New York.
Joseph was a wonderful host! He was there to welcome us with a smile. He also had plenty of suggestions for food and entertainment in the area. The Zen Home was perfect for us. Small, comfortable, and everything we needed included. We especially loved the recycling option and Joseph's awesome art work accenting the space. The neighborhood was great. Safe, clean and quiet with easy access to the subway to get anywhere in the city. There was a 24 hour grocery store no more than two blocks away as well. We highly recommend the Zen Home to anyone staying in the area. Thanks Joseph!
Great location, great host and great Appartment. If you are looking into renting an appartment in this area..look no further you have found it. Joeseph is very helpfull and a nice guy. Absolute reccomendation !
Joseph was a fantastic host that was kind enough to personally come and meet us at the apartment and show us around. Not only did he give a great rundown on the apartment, he also gave us advice on the best places to go around the neighborhood too. He was very knowledgable and very accessible as well. Thanks for the wonderful advice Joseph!
The apartment was so much fun to stay in and we were sad to leave! We will definitely be requesting to stay there again in the future. It was clean, exactly as the description provides, and was wonderful. Joseph also had a few key supplies available that made life a lot easier (hairdryer!) and made it feel just like home for our stay. Great place.
The neighborhood is great as well. Lots of fun things to do close by! Loved spending a few days there! The entire stay was so much fun!
Excellent apartment in one of the best parts of the city. Everything as described. Apartment was warm without loud radiators. No street noise and quiet neighbors. Joseph was lovely and very accommodating at both check in and check out. Definitly a worthy home for future NYC travel
It was a great apartment. The tub in the kitchen is kind of weird, but we got used to it really fast! It was amazing to stay here. There is a lot to do in the neighbourhood, good food and bars. Also a great place to do some shopping. All subways are close by.
Great host, great location, great space...the bathtub is a little weird, but weird is the new perfect.
