About this listing
7 min. by car to Brooklyn and 35 min. to Manhattan; in the walking distance to public transportation: 20min. to Brooklyn and 50 min. to Manhattan by bus and a Ferry which is FREE and very romantic, all of the movies about NYC where filmed from the Staten Island Ferry! And the Green Lady (Statue of Liberty) is passed by every time you go to and back from Manhattan.The apartment is on a quiet street and it's 10 min. walking distance to the ocean. It's in the safe residential neighborhood.
The apartment is completely separate. The only thing that's shared is the foyer/corridor with two entrance doors into apartments: mine (I live upstairs) and yours (first floor). The living/bedroom has a huge window (it has a nice garden in front) and on the street level. The dining area, kitchen and bathroom is 6 steps down. There are 2 big closets and the furniture is from IKEA. A 5 min. walk away there are a couple of big stores, two museums (Garribaldi-Meucci museum and Alice Auston - very picturesque and on the ocean shore), Fort Wadsworth - an old fort turned into a park with the BEST view of Brooklyn, Manhattan and New Jersey and South Beach with boardwalk, beach area and restaurants.
You will have access to the entire apartment and the foyer/corridor preceding it.
Interaction with Guests
I live in the apartment upstairs. Our interaction could be minimal if you prefer it. Otherwise I would be happy to help you, answer questions or chat))).
No smoking, no loud noises after 9pm. No hair dyeing, no hair oil (or bring your own pillows, bedding, towels). No walking in shoes inside the apartment.
