Classic NY studio with exposed brick located on the border of Greenwich Village, Chelsea, and Meat Packing District. Close to everything! The street is quiet and off the main avenues, with lots of great cafes in the area. Near all subway lines, too!
Please note that this is a share and not your own space. Please, first inquire through "CONTACT HOST" and please, please
**do not request to book** until we've exchanged some details (eg time of check-in/out), and I've said you are welcome to book. If you do, it will be declined. Thank you. :)
Located on the border of the Village, Chelsea, and the Meat Packing District, right by the Highline, Joyce Theater and all subway trains.
There is a sofabed (orange, fold-out, see photos) so that you can share the apartment with me. The property features a roof deck, great light, sound proof windows, filtered water, wi-fi, and kitchen.
**Please have an updated profile with pictures (current, of yourself), verifications, references, and reviews. If you are new and without reviews, enough of the others may suffice. I don't book or communicate outside of airbnb until reservations have been made. This keeps the community safe and personable.**
The apartment is very quiet as it features sound proof windows on an already quiet tree-lined street, with great cafes, bars and restaurants steps away.
Kitchen has rice cooker, toaster over, gas stove, etc (no microwave).
It is a 5th floor walk-up (4 flights of stairs) so be prepared! Also, NO SNORING. We're sharing the same space.
I often get up at 5:30a, and as we're sharing a room, it might wake you. Guests who get up early and retire early, like books and museums, etc, are encouraged. Those wanting to stay out past 10/11p are discouraged (esp if that feels like a curfew rather than when you'd be back anyway).
Please note I don't generally book the apartment for more than 4 days. It could be possible to stay longer, but it's something we can work out after those first days. For two guests, two nights is maximum stay.
Thanks for your interest!
Interaction with Guests
You will be staying with me, an editor and yoga teacher (worry not, I don't proselytize), so you like to meet locals when you travel. I work from home, but am quite busy and will give you space. I enjoy telling people about the city and hearing their perspectives, but when I'm working, I can't chat. I've traveled a lot and love staying with hosts rather than in a hotel because I like to get a real feel for a place rather than just see the tourist sights, so I enjoy people who want the same.
Close to everything! Steps from the Village, the Meatpacking District, and the Highline, walking distance from Union Square, SoHo, Macy's, Time Square, Empire State Building, and all trains. It's even easy to get to Brooklyn. The neighborhood is at the cross of the Village (Greenwich), Chelsea, and the Meatpacking district, with amazing cafes and shops. The street is quiet and off the main avenues.
Steps from A ,C, E, L, 1, 2, 3 trains, very close to F, M trains as well. B, D, N, R, Q, 4, 5, 6 about 10min walk or 1 stop transfer away.
Parking is expensive, about $60+/day. Street parking is hard to find. Car not recommended.
Taxi, shuttle, or literally steps away from the A, E subway trains to airport.

No smoking, no pets, shoe-free home. Please keep volume down for neighbors, especially on the stairs/in the hall. If you use a glass or fork (etc), wash it. Make your bed. Clean your hair off the sink (gross). Keep things tidy.
I often get up at 5:30a, and as we're sharing a room, it might wake you. Guests who get up early and retire early, like books and museums, etc, are encouraged. Those wanting to stay out past 10/11p should book elsewhere (esp if that feels like a curfew rather than when you'd be back anyway). Those who return late will be asked to leave (have had my sleep interrupted too many times by guests who assured they'd be back and did what they pleased).
People who are self-sufficient (eg don't want me to tell them how to get around) are happiest here. When I make coffee, eat, etc, while you are around, I apologize for not offering. (It's a time issue w/the coffee. The mokka is 1 serving and takes forever to clean. Feel free to make some coffee or tea for yourself!)
Please keep in mind that a parking space on this block is $60/night, and youth hostels cost more for less, well outside the city center. If I made this listing full service, made you coffee, and cleaned up after you, it would cost far more and likely be out of range of the people interested in staying here.
Unfortunately, you cannot have packages or mail delivered here.
That said, I have much fun hosting and love 99% of my guests. Most important, enjoy! Thanks for your interest!
I had a lovely stay at her place. The room was clean, cozy and comfortable. The neighborhood was excellent. There were several subway stops, tons of shops, restaurants and coffee shops in walking distance. Literally easy access to everything.
Anastasia was a great host. She welcomed me warmly. I enjoyed talking with her. She also gave me my space so that I could have my time just relaxing.
I would be happy to stay at Anastasia's room again!!
The apartments is in a great neighborhood, and is very close to a number of subway stations. Wholefoods/trader joes is right down the road. Anatasias place is clean, but very small.
I stayed this beautiful and superb roo m in December. The place is perfect to go everywhere and easy to go back.
Anastasia is really welcome and great person! I actually talked with her and she taught about NYC and English even though I am not good at speaking.
I could spend great time in NYC with you! Thank you!
I had a lovely stay at Anastasia's while I was in New York. Her apartment, which is cozy, tidy, and quiet, is ideally located in the vibrant neighbourhood of Chelsea. Anastasia is a wonderful host, both friendly and respectful, and I really enjoyed getting to know her during our morning and evening chats. A place to go back to.
I highly recommend!! Thank you, Anastasia, for the wonderful stay!
Anastasia was very welcoming. She was responsive in the emailing before my arrival and was at home when I arrived. The room was as described, cozy and clean. I would be happy to stay at her place again.
The location was great. Plenty of coffee shops and restaurants near by. The room is very tight (tighter than the photos show). The lighting could be improved with a desk or floor lamp but none were available. The host is a pleasant person but I felt like I was imposing on her space/time.
Let's start off with the location - I've been to NYC many times but this was my first time staying in Chelsea. It's a very trendy, safe neighbourhood, and conveniently located near the subway stops.
While Anastasia's apartment appears to be small, I never felt crammed for space or uncomfortable. She keeps her apartment very clean (which I appreciate) and has everything you need.
As for the lovely host, Anastasia - I had a wonderful time chatting with her in the mornings when we woke, and in the evening when I returned. By the end of my trip, I felt as though we were roommates!
Thanks Nastia for a wonderful stay!!! It was an absolute pleasure meeting you =)
