About this listing
Hello! Please read the main parts of the listing before you contact me, as this is a unique space & guest experience that is either perfect for you--or not. Because it's a share, I don't host guys. Beautiful place central to everything in the city.
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!
This is a share for women only and not your own space. (I no longer host guys.) Please, first inquire through "CONTACT HOST" above and please
do not request to book until we've exchanged some details (time of check-in/out, etc), 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, and wi-fi (wifi is not available 11pm-7a).
**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 a quiet tree-lined street, with great cafes, bars and restaurants steps away.
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) as you will not be happy here.
Please note I don't generally book the apartment for more than 3 days. It could be possible to stay longer, but it's something we can work out after those first days.
Thanks for your interest!
Access to roof deck available. Ask!
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 often work from home, but am quite busy and will give you space. I enjoy telling people about the city (in person) 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. I am not a corporate type. This is an idea place for a woman traveling alone, interested in daytime NY, who wants to meet a New Yorker and chat a bit.
As it's a small space and I sometimes work from home, this is not a place to hang out or work all day. The city beckons.
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.
Other things to note
My schedule varies and some days are easier for check-in than others. Tu/Th/Sat are the most difficult to co-ordinate.
Again, women only.
Hi! Please make sure we have discussed your check in and out times before you request to book, and please read the listing in full. This is a small space, so it's important that our schedules work well together.
If you put in a request before this is worked out, I will accept your booking but *not host you* and keep a $50 fee. You can take that up with airbnb, who penalizes hosts for declining guests (customer service told me to deal with it in this way).
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 the bed. Clean your hair off the sink (gross). Keep things tidy.
I often get up at 6a, 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 be out past 10:30p 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 then did what they pleased) or simply be locked out.
Unfortunately, you cannot have packages or mail delivered here.
No bags past checkout as there have been too many past issues with it. There is luggage storage near penn station, 1 stop away. Same with early/late check in. If you stay past the agreed upon checkout time, there is a charge of $20/hr (policy instituted after terrible experience. Sorry).
Web producer from the city. Have traveled lots and like to host people as well as be hosted. It's the best way to see the world!
