About this listing
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 faucet.
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

Joseph is a great host and his place was great. I loved the apartment, it's open airiness and artsy style. The neighbor is fantastic, couldn't ask for a better location! I'd definitely recommend it to anyone and hope to stay there again soon.
Joseph has been very helpful from the moment we booked his apartment. Information about transport from airport made it easy for us to find his apartment. Even with delayed flight and late arrival he was there when we arrived. He gave us a warm welcome and provided useful information about the area. An area with a lots of small and special shops and nice restaurants/cafés. A great area! So glad we stayed here in this quiet, nice neighborhood with short walk to several metro-stations if we wanted to take a run in Central Park or see The Met. Joseph was helpful with a fast response if we had any questions. The apartment was very nice. No problem taking the daily shower as the bathtub now was equipped with a shower-hose. The kitchen gave us the opportunity for an easy start with homemade breakfast some of the days. In summary: A nice apartment in a great area!
My sister and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Joseph's wonderfully located, clean and accurately described apartment. Would certainly recommend. Joseph made us feel very at home (providing two sets of keys, some oranges and other bits and bobs) which made all the difference. We ended up feeling so at home we didn't want to leave. Would stay here again on our next visit!
Joseph met with me in the flat, as planned, and showed me how everything worked and gave me lots of tips about the area. He is a very easygoing and nice person - the perfect host!
The flat was just as described, nice and clean. I would definitely recommend staying with Joseph.
Joseph is super sweet, the beds are comfy and the location is wonderful - the place is clean as well. I unfortunately wouldn't book again only because there is no stand up shower, the tub unfortunately was a bit more inconvenient than anticipated. For a one time experience it was fine though.
Joseph's place was great! The neighborhood is perfect for getting around. Everything was clean and as described. And Joseph was a great host. Only things to make sure you are aware of/good with: 1) no shower - just a small tub in the kitchen, 2) 5 flights of stairs. Otherwise, it's great!
Very accurate description; great neighborhood and location. Host is amazing artist; would recommend.
