Amazing location. Fully furnished one-bedroom apartment on the first floor in an elevator-building. It makes the perfect pied-a-terre, complete with blackout shades so you can sleep as late as you'd like.
Full compact kitchen, and the glass-top table can raise from a coffee table (pictured) to serve as a counter / dining table. The 10 foot ceilings are pretty nice too.
This cozy apartment makes for an excellent home-base when in New York City. Just 10 minutes South of Penn Station and a 15 minute walk to Union Square, the location can't be beat. Most comfortable for one or two adults --you could squeeze a third on the couch or air mattress in the living room if need be.
Basement contains coin-operated laundry and garbage.
Fire escape can make for a nice balcony. The apartment's entrance is on the ground floor, but windows are one level up from the backyard.

The apartment is cute and cozy, perfect for one of two people. Very accessible and has everything you will need for your stay! It is very close to trader joes and whole foods. I didn't run into any problems while staying there, but if I did, kate was always willing to help, and I felt that I could always get a hold of her.
Loved traveling to Varkala, India and Rome, Italy. Though those two destinations may seem pretty different, they each feature a more relaxed culture than everyday life in New York.
