My house is on a quiet tree lined street only 1 block from the subway. Your room comfortably sleeps 3. I'll supply you with fresh towels and sheets. Your bathroom is large and you can take a relaxing bath as well as a shower.

The space

Your bedroom is 12X12 or 144 sq. feet. It has 2 windows with shutters that look over my backyard. You have a full and twin bed. You get plenty of daylight and can see the sunset from your room. You have plenty of drawer space. You have a closet to hang things up and stow your bags in.I refinished the hardwood floors 2 years ago.

Guest access

You'll be able to use the living room, my kitchen and grill and backyard during the warmer weather.

Interaction with guests

I'm home pretty often so we should bump into each other a lot. I'll try and answer all your questions and help you any way I can.

Other things to note

This is the house I grew up in. I've lived here since 1960. She was built in 1903. I've seen how my home and neighborhood have changed over that time. I'm inviting you to share some time in my home. I'm easygoing and you'll laugh with me.

Skip was very nice and flexible with a late check in! Room was as promised with clean linens and a lock to keep personal items safe in the room while we were out. Air conditioning for a comfortable sleep. Conveniently located to Subway. Plan out where in Manhattan you are going to accurately figure out travel times on the Subway.
