About this listing
A classic NYC retreat in the uber-hip East Village. Quiet apartment, private roof deck and a vibrant neighborhood at your doorstep.
This is my cozy, sunny one bedroom in New York's very hip East Village neighborhood. I love this neighborhood and the apartment is very close to the best of it - within minutes is Thompkins Square park, tons of restaurants, bars and shopping.
This apartment is classic East Village - meaning you get a tree-lined block, friendly neighbors but it's also a fourth floor walk-up in an old-school East Village building. This apartment is not for the faint of legs or breath! A bit about the apartment itself:
The living room is sunny and cozy and the ceilings are double high, giving it a very airy, loft-like feel. There's no TV, but it has wireless network that connects to a surround-sound speaker set-up. In addition, the apartment has a projector that you can connect your computer to and stream content from the Internet onto the wall that's left blank for that purpose in the living room. There's a wall on the roof that you can project to from the private roof deck.
The apartment has a private roof deck that's accessible only from the apartment itself. It's truly lovely and is set up with plants, a table that seats 4-6 and a grill.
I use my kitchen a lot and therefore have plenty of cookware and dishes. There's a dishwasher as well as a full-size gas stove.
The bathroom has a full tub and a shower with great water pressure (not always a given in NYC apartments).
And the bedroom - my solace. I've lived in a lot of apartments in NYC and the reason I love this one is because at night the bedroom is quiet. It's at the back of the building and overlooks a very large tree and a playground. During the school year, the kids are in the playground from 8am onwards so there is some noise there, but during the night it's very quiet. I also have black-out curtains to make the bedroom particularly cave-like.
I've lived in about 15 places in NYC and this one is my favorite. It's a real gem of a place.
Close to the L train. A 12 minute walk to the 6, N, R.
No smoking in the apartment, but you can go up to the roof to smoke.
Please be aware of the neighbors - it's a quiet, respectful building and I'd like to stay in good standing with my neighbors.
