Everyone longs to have a "room of one's own" in New York City, the teeming metropolis of 12 million souls. This recently renovated studio offers all the amenities of home, literally within an arms reach:
Bathroom now includes hair dryer (thanks to feedback from prior guests!) and full bathtub with shower
Cable TV (basic channels) and WiFi Internet
Fully supplied kitchen
Queen-sized pillow-topped mattress with clean linens
Have dinner with friends at the unfolding four-seater table
This charming space makes a great base from which you can explore whatever aspect of this city appeals to you most. Like the skyline? Walk half a block to the newly rebuilt East River Promenade and look back at the city as the sun sets. Nightlife turn you on? Nearby beer gardens, pubs, music venues, poetry cafes, and dance clubs offer something for everyone. Want to see it all, and then get away from it all when it inevitably tires you out? The studio is a ten minute walk from major subways to take you cross-, up- or down-town in a matter of minutes, but far enough off the noisy avenues that you'll get a long, undisturbed night's sleep - if you want it. And of course, it's within seconds of all those services we can't live without: grocery, drug store, laundromat, and great pizza.
Although I generally only accept a 3-night minimum stay, I may be able to accommodate 2-night stays. Send me a message with the dates you are interested in, and I'll see what I can do.
The place was great. Really good location lots of bars, restaurants, and things to do. Between a 10-15 minute walk to the subway.
Apartment had everything we needed, kitchen appliances, towels etc.
Tim was really easy to get in contact with and always responded quickly.
TJ was a great host - incredibly responsive. Apartment was cute, clean, and in a great location. Fresh, clean towels in the bathroom ... A few good guidebooks to peruse ... Intermittent wi-fi (I think the router might be on its way out) ... Great little kitchen with local grocery stores nearby. This was my first experience w Airbnb & it could not have been better. Thanks TJ!
There's not much to say about TJ's place that hasn't already been said - very communicative, clear instructions, AWESOME neighborhood. This neighborhood is seriously amazing, and way better than what you'd get if you stayed in a regular hotel in a touristy part of (website hidden) has a great system and has made it really easy for his guests. Would highly recommend!
I agree with others that it's a little far from the subway, but if it wasn't bitterly cold with snow all over the place, that wouldn't have been a big deal at all. If you're staying there in spring/summer/fall it's probably a very pleasant walk.
Tim's place was perfect for a weekend in the city. The apartment was clean and tidy. Excellent location - close to so many of my favorite places. The neighborhood was also terrific.
Check in was flexible. very straight forward location. but lots of walking to get Transportation. close to restaurants. but it seems they dont wash bed sheet. For location in New York, its good.
Great place in nyc : cheap and clean.
Just a little far to the subway (15min by walk)
Cozy studio felt like home away from home! Perfect space for a couple's getaway on the cheap :)
TJ responded very quickly and was easy to communicate with. Check-in procedure worked perfectly. Great location
Tjs place was very comfortable and easy. Would definitely recommend for anyone wanting a nice simple stay in nyc :) Thanks Tj
My boyfriend and I had a wonderful at Tim's studio!
It is conveniently located in a really nice neighbourhood, near one of my favourite areas in NY, Lower East Side (LES) and with easy access to visit both Manhattan and Brooklyn.
The studio is equipped with everything you might need and Tim has been really helpful and easy to get in contact with. He has always answered promptly to all my e-mails with a lot of questions and requests.
I would definitely recommend him and his place to everyone looking for a cozy place in a cool, trendy, but at the same time quiet and relaxing area of NY!
