About this listing
Great private room in a lovely safe and charming neighborhood only 15 minutes to Grand Central in Midtown. A 5 min walk to the 7 train line.
I am an easy going hostess who has lived in NYC for 18 years. When asked, I have lots of suggestions for places to visit, what to see or where to eat.
Please note that this is a shared situation. Your room is private-I provide linens. There is one bathroom that is shared. I sleep in the living room which is closed off at night.
Although I love sharing my home with guests, please note I work from home so I respectfully ask that you spend most of your day visiting the the city. This is the best situation for everyone. I start work around 10 am and prefer that you are out and about within a reasonable time to me starting my work routine.
Your room is comfortable, clean, quiet and beautifully appointed with Manhattan SKYLINE VIEWS. Also-- location is very convenient if your visiting Brooklyn or Manhattan--with excellent transportation connections.
I can't say enough about what a really great place Sunnyside is! Lovely Historically landmarked Sunnyside has the feel of a small town inside of a great big city!!!!! Apt is only 6 subway stops from Grand Central and Lexington Ave in Midtown Manhattan (about 10-12 minutes away on the 7 subway line). The subway stop closest to the apt is only 2 blocks away(7 line 40th St/Lowery Station) and there are also 2 buses that get you into Manhattan in just a few minutes
A cab ride into Manhattan is very affordable and is usually about 15 dollars to get just about anywhere.
My neighborhood offers many choices for restaurants, cafes, pubs, bars & lounges, deli's, a great wine and spirits store, tons of local green markets and supermarkets in a the neighborhood.
**** If you are traveling with FIDO he is more than welcome to stay provided he/she is a well behaved animal for an additional fee. Sunnyside has a land-marked gardens district which is just a two minute walk away and well worth seeing as the little houses and gardens are quite charming.
I have a very sweet Umbrella Cockatoo named Cuddles (age 18 (I think)- who I just adopted 3 years ago) who shares my space with me as well.
My amenities have changed and I no longer provide breakfast, although you are welcome to cook for yourself.
When requesting the room, please confirm you have read the entire description and are in agreement.
Bedroom has wifi, flat screen tv with Netflix & Hulu, kitchen use, bathroom etc.
Interaction with Guests
Chat about what kind of day they had and see if they need anything.
I love how I can walk down any avenue in Sunnyside and see an amazing view of Manhattan.
the 7 train is one avenue away and one block down.
the Q60 & the Q 32 are one block up and both go into Manhattan in about 15 minutes.
Also plenty of yellow cabs and hired livery available.
Be kind and courteous. Please double check that you have locked the apt door upon leaving. Please keep everything neat and clean. If coming back late please keep your voices lowered so as to not awaken either myself or 'Cuddles' the bird.
