Hi there! My description below should answer all of your questions about me, the apartment and neighbourhood. If I have left anything out, please ask!
★ THE APARTMENT ★
The apartment is sunny and large with an open space for living. The apartment features three bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen and a living room. It is located on the 4th floor of a turn of the century walkup building.
Each of the two rooms available for rent need to be booked separately. The bedroom can accommodate 2 people and for additional guests, there is a sofa couch in the living room, which pulls out to be a full size sleeper.
★ THE NEIGHBORHOOD ★
Located in Manhattan in an area known as Manhattanville just north of Morningside Heights and southwest of Harlem with a variety of cafes, restaurants and grocers located within walking distance. The neighborhood is safe, friendly and lively. The apartment is centrally located between 2 subway lines which makes getting nearly anywhere in Manhattan easy.

★ YOUR HOST ★
Expatriate from Canada, recent Columbia graduate and now working part time in Manhattan at NASA. I would love to tell you more!
I've lived in this neighbourhood for about a year so I know all the great places and the things to do. I like meeting people, hearing your story and would love to have you come stay at my apartment! I've already met a lot of great people and do expect you to be polite, clean and easygoing.

★ I am happy to provide anything that else you may need ★
Only two last things (thanks for reading this far!)
• If you're booking for more than 2 people, it is important to contact me before you book to ensure the space in the living room is available
• Also, if it isn't clear, I will be home during your stay. This is a shared-space situation (the privacy part of the listing means that you'll have a private bedroom), but a fun, clean, inexpensive one nonetheless.
Had a great stay at Ken's place last week. The apartment is very close to the subway, as well as plenty of stores and places to eat. Ken is very friendly and a great host- checking in to make sure everything was ok, and offered many suggestions and advice for the area. Would stay here again.
Ken was a great host, and kept a clean guest bedroom,bathroom and kitchen for me. The bed was very cozy. I would definitely stay again and highly recommend their place to others.
Ken is a great person to stay with! He's quiet, clean, and the apartment is comfortable. I've stayed multiple times with Ken and plan to continue to stay with him on my frequent visits to Manhattan!
Quite a nice place to stay. Some things were broken and a bit troublesome to fix but overall not too bad. It is convenient to open the door and checking in and out was easy. The place is close to the 1 Train so it's quite convenient.
I and my friend stayed in Ken's apartment only one night but Ken was very nice and friendly. Good location as well.
We only stayed at Ken's for one night, arriving late and leaving early. Despite that, he took the time for a long chat with us and was really nice and helpful. Since this was our first night in NYC and also our first airbnb experience, we really appreciate that.
Although the guest room was quite small, it contained everything we needed and we could also use the living room.
Ken is a very warmhearted and open host. Thank you for our first night in NYC!
Ken's apartment is very nice and rather clean, the location is very good - close to the subway and Central Park.
The neighbourhood of his flat is really safe.
Ken is friendly and helpful person, we got very clear directions how to get to his flat, the stay in his apartment was a realy good time.
Ken nous a très bien accueilli. Chambre confortable. Je le recommande à tous ceux qui veulent partir à New York.
Overall good stay in a fine neighbourhood. A little bit noisy during the evening/night.
We had a great time in NYC so we haven't been that much at Ken's place.
I had a great stay at Ken's place. It definitely feels like a NY apartment - very cozy quarters - but it is clean and conveniently located, and you can't beat the price in NYC. Ken was very nice and helpful, an overall excellent host!
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
