The Space

Please note that this is a share, not your own space.

Because it's a share, please, please DO NOT BOOK UNTIL I've replied to your inquiry, we've exchanged some details, and I've said you are welcome to book. It will be declined. This is a home, and I like to be sure we will coexist happily, even if you won't be around much. Vibe is important in such a small space.

**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.**

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.

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 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.

The Neighborhood

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.

Getting around

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.

  • Anastasia was really nice and accommodating throughout my stay at her place! Her place was tidy and clean, decorated with gorgeous photographs that she has taken herself. The subway is close by as well and makes traveling really convenient! Anastasia herself is an avid traveler and shared about her cool traveling experiences when I was there. Definitely a place I'd recommend to anyone traveling to NYC! :)

  • Anastasia is a kind host who maintains very solid communication throughout your stay. This is especially important for someone who plans on being in and out of the apartment frequently. She went out of her way to accommodate my schedule and I felt at home almost immediately. You can't beat the location.

  • A nice, clean and cosy space. Exceptional location. Excellent communication leading up to and during my stay. Anastasia made me feel comfortable and at home, and I am so glad I chose this place. Highly Recommended.

  • Anastasia was a very friendly host and gave me a lot of tips on what to do or where to go around in the neighbourhood and NYC. Her apartment was clean, pretty and located very conviniently, so it was pretty much everything I expected or even more. The neighbourhood with it´s many restaurants, shops and subway lines proved to be quite lovely and welcoming. I´d definitely come here again next time when I visit NYC!

  • I hardly need to add to the many people describing Anastasia's lovely place and excellent hospitality. You will have a great time--sleep well, be warm, well located, be comfortable, and if you're lucky have some great conversations with Anastasia.

  • I had a nice and short stay at Anastasia's place.
    She was a kind and attentive host and the location was perfect for my needs.
    I do recommend it to other travelers.

  • Anastasia is a amazing woman. She will share with you what's good close-by and what's within walking distance. This apartment is close to the train which is amazing, close to 5th avenue and the high line. Comfy bed and clean apartment. Traveling light would be recommended. You'll smell coffee every morning.

  • Anastasia was a wonderful host. The place was exactly as described. The sofa bed was very comfy and I had no problems sleeping during my stay. The location is amazing! The subway station is only a block away and High Line Park is only two blocks away. Everything you need is close by. Anastasia was very accommodating and shared some tips about navigating New York. If I were to visit the city, I would definitely try to stay with her again. Thank you so much Anastasia.

    Response from Anastasia:

    Thanks, Edward! Was fun having you.

  • I stayed in New York three nights in this lovely studio. Everything as described, very close to the subway and I had a very good time with Anastasia. She was friendly, open, honest and very helpful, as she even gave me some suggestions of museums and places to visit, or what buses to take. This was my first airbnb experience - and it couldn't have been better!
