About This Listing
My home is exceptionally large by NYC standards. Built in 1900, there are many interesting architectural details. You will find it quiet, centrally located, and filled with fresh air and sunlight.
Welcome to Casa Jeffrey!
I am happy to welcome into my home new friends from around the world! I live here full time and I rent out my extra bedroom. If you are looking for a true New Yorker experience, look no further! If you prefer something wholly private you should find another listing as I never rent out my entire apartment. I have one roommate, Eugene, whom is a professional ballroom dancer.
I have two Guest Bedrooms and two Full Bathrooms here. Myself and my roommates use one of the Bathrooms(Resident Bathroom) and the other is shared by our guests(Guest Bathroom). They are labeled in the photos as such. Fresh towels are always on hand. I also provide some basic toiletries should you need them. There is always soap, q-tips, contact lens solution, band aids, aspirin and more on hand and available for your use should you need them.
I offer very flexible Check-In/ Check-Out times! Please let me know what time you plan to arrive/ depart so I may coordinate with our other guests. You may be asked to vacate your room by a certain time in order for me to have it cleaned in time for our next guests' arrival. You are always welcome to store your luggage in our living room until you are ready to (website hidden)3 offers 2 Twin beds which may be joined to form 1 King bed, a medium sized dresser, closet area with wooden hangers, a 32''LCD HDTV w/ HD DVR Cable box, Premium Cable and a dual iPhone/ iPod speaker docking station. 450 thread count, 100% Egyptian cotton sheets and down comforters await you, as well as fresh towels, etc for the bathroom.

Privacy is easily obtained if you want it. If you're more social, then myself and my roommate are quite friendly. The house is always kept clean and in good order. There is no elevator here, and we are a 4 flight walk-up so please keep that in mind. I am more than happy to help you get your bags up and down though!
The real bonus on being on the top floor is all the great sunlight we get - 3 exposures and the views!
We are located 2 short blocks from Columbus Circle, Central Park and Hudson River Park. There is incredible dining options all around us. You will find we are extremely convenient to several subway lines( A, B, C, D, E, F, N, Q, R, 1 Trains), buses as well as Penn Station and the Port Authority Bus Terminal. Should you need to park, there are several garages on our block, however please be aware they are very expensive! We do not have/ offer on-site parking of any kind. We are well within walking distance to the Theater District, Lincoln Center, The Metropolitan Opera, The New York City Ballet, The New York Philharmonic Orchestra as well as the Upper West Side. A short stroll will take you to the fabulous shopping of 5th Avenue or the bright lights of Times Square.
Smoking is allowed here, but only on the terrace.
Hungry? Feel free to grab something in the kitchen. There is always a ton of food here. You're welcome to cook or even entertain a dinner party if you so wish. Just be prepared to return the kitchen the way you found it.
You're welcome to use the living room and kitchen as if it were your own. We want you to feel comfortable here!
Each guest will receive their own set of keys - one for the front door and one for the apartment door. Our individual rooms do not have locks! It is perfectly reasonable to be somewhat wary of this, but I trust in the good nature of all of our guests. Remember you are renting a room in my home. I have far more to lose here than you are bringing with you. This is not a hotel with hundreds of transients. Your privacy is respected 100%, 100% of the time! Should you feel less than comfortable with this situation it would likely be best for you to stay elsewhere.
Unless I am sleeping, I respond almost immediately to any inquiry. Please give me a clear picture of your intentions for staying here and whatever your specific needs may be. No one likes surprises at check-in! If you do not already have the AirBNB smartphone app, I highly recommend downloading it!
No room or area is off-limits. As a guest in my home you have access to every feature, room, and comfort.
Interaction with Guests
As much or as little as you wish. A simple "hello" or "goodbye" is fine. More meaningful interactions are always welcomed!
My neighborhood is rich in history and quite unique! A few steps in any direction will take you to great cultural experiences, theater, nature, architecture, and shopping.
My apartment is 2 blocks from a major metro hub, 59th St/ Columbus Circle. From there you can get to almost anywhere!
Other Things to Note
My friend Scott, and his 8yr old dog, Wally have recently moved in! They are both quite friendly and docile.
No Wild Parties.
Be Respectful of our Neighbors.
Enjoy Your Stay!
It must be the most comfortable accommodation I've ever stayed in New York. The convenient location, clean environment, and vintage decoration were the first impression it gave me. After getting along with the roomies for more than one week, their friendly and sincere attitudes moved me a lot. Btw, wally is a really cute dog lol! Highly recommend it!
Great location and plenty of space
Jeff made us feel comfortable and welcome in his home.
Everything was clean and as per photos. He was very accommodating with our late arrival from Sth America. Assistance up four floors with baggage greatly appreciated. Many thanks Jeff
My friend and I stayed at Jeffrey's place for 4 nights. He has a lovely well-decorated place and basic necessities were provided for. His place is also within a short walking distance to the subway station and tonnes of restaurants and sights, making it a convenient location in the Manhattan area.
