The space

Large open loft space, sun filled with high ceilings and hardwood floors. The clock tower building was an old piano factory so its really beautiful and very true New York loft-style living.

There is a fab roofdeck and gym and laundry in the building. The area of South Bronx itself is very quiet, without a lot of people, which I've always found to be nice after long day amongst the hustle and bustle of New York.

You are moments away from Harlem, filled with late night jazz, southern style restaurants, very cool street markets on weekends, and the north side of central park...you can walk there over the bridge. I travel each day to downtown Manhattan via the 4/5/6 train and it takes about 15-20 mins to get to Union Square.... never are the trains a problem (occasionally on a Sunday), and the station is a 5 minute walk from the apartment. Despite the reputation of the neighborhood it is super safe and chill, and I think extremely up and coming as consistently more and more creatives move in and development occurs. There are a few good restaurants in the area, one (Charlie's) right in the building itself!

The apartment is completely yours while you are here. It is really bright, clean and relaxing. There is a big comfy couch which can easily sleep an extra person. The space itself is 900 sq ft, which for NY standards is massive, I try and keep furniture minimal to enhance the size of it. Please be aware that the photos are 100% accurate, this is everything (and lack there of) what you will be getting. Bed is queen sized and a softer mattress, so again if you need a very firm mattress this may bother you. The space is very light and I don't have curtains on the 3 front windows, so if being in a pitch black room at night is important for you, this is not your space.

The apartment is almost on the corner of the building, and located on the 3rd floor. It is located by a very busy road that accesses the city. I say this because noise can be a problem, especially for people who aren't used to NYC living! In the 30 odd guests I've hosted here, only 2 have complained about this, but I think its important to say. You will likely never find a completely quiet rental in this city, but if you are a very light sleeper and this is concerning to you, might be best to look elsewhere.

I'm really happy in this space, have lived here for 2 years and rent it only when I am out of town for work, which is increasingly more and more frequently! I'm very relaxed and happy to assist with whatever questions you may have prior to booking. Looking forward to hearing from you!

This is a fantastic option for those travelers who are looking for a different experience to the city and Brooklyn, the Bronx has such a unique vibe, especially this area which was until recently predominately factory buildings.

You are 5 minutes walk from Harlem, and some of the best culture and restaurants in upper manhattan. Apollo theater, Red rooster, Sylvias soulfood.

You are 3 blocks walk to the 6 train, which takes you right down the east side of manhattan. This really is such an easy subway line to access the whole city by.

Yes. 4/5/6 trains all 3-5 blocks away.
Buses into the city and also very close bus to Laguardia airport.

Caroline's airy loft is just as described. It is bright with street noise, so as she says - it may not be for you if dark and quiet is required for sleep. There was some major construction going on across the street and they started pretty early with significant loud dump truck …

Caroline was fantastic with communication. It was easy to checkin and checkout. The place wasn't within walking distance of anything lively or happening. But it was a cozy place with super cute furnishing.

Caroline was a very welcoming host and pretty prompt at responding to messages considering she was in Australia at the time of our visit. Her "welcome" book was helpful for getting the wifi password, finding a place or two to eat, knowing checkout procedures, and so on. The a…
