About this listing
A lovely room with double bed, japanese screens, desk and tall closet in a large loft downtown Manhattan. There is a shared beautiful country eat in kitchen and shared bathroom. The loft is a quiet old world shared space near Greenwich Village and the Lower East Side on Union Square. This is a great location. All subways near. Great shopping and theaters. This is a classic New York loft (converted factory). The decorations are from treasures all over the world. This is a great space for someone seeking a restful and really New York apartment that is spacious in Manhattan. Near subways, great restaurants, theaters, biggest second hand bookstore in Manhattan and over the top shopping!
this is the perfect place for a woman. The cats are friendly, but are not allowed into the room (except on invitation). What makes the space unique is that it is a very large spacious room. A Shoji screen lets in light and the air circulation is lovely with fans. Come here and feel as if you have found a bit of the country in Manhattan. Spend an hour reading in a sitting nook near big windows.
Guests have access to the kitchen and the sitting room. Wireless access is free. The shared bathroom has a large old fashioned bathtub and private bathroom. The eat in kitchen is larger than most NY apartments.
Interaction with Guests
Interaction depends on the guests. I tend to make sure you have what you need and leave you to yourself. If you need to talk or our paths cross , I am delighted.
Guests are asked not to invite anyone into our private home. I am always in the city when guests are in the house.
Union Square is one of the best neighborhoods in Manhattan. It is central to all subways and buses. The park nearby has an open market for fresh food and is filled with buskers and lively people reading and hanging out. We are five minutes walking to Washington Square Park and the Lower East Side filled with fabulous coffee shops, tiny boutiques, ex hippies and great ethnic restaurants.
Transportation is great: subways and buses go overwhere. Taxis are easy to hail. NY is a great walk around city. You are near The East Village, Greenwich Village, Chelsea, Gramercy Park and the Lower East Side. Take a walk on the High Line and wander galleries. All within fifteen minutes.
