This property is not a fit for those who:

- dislike being on their own (including checking yourself in and out of the property)
- feel uncomfortable in a working class, city neighborhood
- find technology (logging onto WiFi, using TV remotes, keyless entry systems) to be a challenge
- require central air conditioning
Guests get an entry code for the exterior door, so multiple arrival times are not a problem. You have a private, secure entrance. Full use of the apartment and a large outdoor deck, accessible via a walk out from the living room.

I am available by email or phone to answer any questions or help in any way.
Please look at my guidebook for just a sampling of all the shops and restaurants just a few blocks from the property. The shops sell handmade ravioli and cannoli and customers chatter in Italian. It is, after all, our "Little Italy": a friendly, family-oriented neighborhood.
The property is at the end of a quiet, safe residential street, yet less than two blocks to a bustling street featuring with shops, restaurants, and bars. In a working class, urban neighborhood.
