This one bedroom, 2nd floor walkup, is in the fantastic East Village/Alphabet City and can sleep two comfortably (3 at a pinch). An extraordinarily large backyard makes this an oasis in the city, and is just 2 blocks from Tompkins Sq Park & subways!
There is a stereo, TV, dvd player, free wifi (and several plants that need occasional watering)
Terrific old wooden floored railroad apartment in east village. 2nd floor walkup, bedroom at the back overlooking large quiet tree-filled shared backyard. I have a couple of plants that need watering, and it comes with wifi, A/C and heating. Seeking a quiet person who will enjoy this wonderful, peaceful space.
The bathroom comes with a shower in full size bathtub and is located off the bedroom. The living room faces the street, kitchen is in the middle and the bedroom plus bathroom is at the rear facing the garden.
The apartment is in the vibrant East Village, close to the L train subway stop and a short stroll to Tompkins Square Park. Many restaurants and great cafes just outside the door and Citi-Bike bike share around the corner.
The backyard is there to share and enjoy!
Alphabet City is awesome! 2 blocks east you are at the East River; Tompkins Square Park is just down the street, and the cafes (EXCELLENT coffee at Ninth Street Espresso) and restaurants and nice bars are flourishing without reducing this neighborhood's authentic charm.
The L train is close - at 1st Ave/14th st. Also Union Square and Astor Place are not far - especially if you utilize the Citibike bike share program, many bikes very close and handy
Great people live in this building - 9 apartments in total. I ask that you respect the neighbors as though you lived here - say hi in the stairwell or the backyard, and be mindful of noise levels.
Anthony is an ideal host; easy going, helpful and respectful. Though I am no local, his apartment feels like the authentic East Village experience; quite spacious for two people but also cozy enough in winter. The East Village is a great spot to stay with many great bars and restaurants. The proximity to the L train also makes it easy to travel uptown, downtown, over to the West Village or even into Brooklyn. Having said this, it was not too much of a stretch to walk to many places in Manhattan.
The appartment is great, very well located (5 mins walking from L line) in a very pleasant neighbourhood, with tons of nice bars / restaurants / shops. East Village is definitely the area we prefered in NY and Anthony's appartment was a great way to discover it!
Anthony is kind and hospitable. He was responsive during the preparation and everything went perfect.
Anthony's place was great. Super cute, everything you need and in a great area with lots of places to dine and (email hidden). 5 minute walk to subway made everything easier.
Very cozy and spacious apartment in the east village. The neighborhood and the apartment has a nice, bohemian vibe to it with cool jazz bars and restaurants nearby.
The bedroom and the living room separate nicely, so you can close the bedroom door for a quiet night's rest. Anthony was very responsive and flexible with the check in/check out time - which was really helpful because I came in on a red-eye. :) Would gladly stay there again.
We are very well-travelled airbnb guests, mostly in NYC. Of all our experiences, this has yet to be our most colloquial experience....and we loved it! We had yet had, previously, the happenstance to thoroughly engage with other residents. The enormous, greenery-filled common courtyard was the impetus for that one night; otherwise, it didn't occur during our 3, full-day stay. There are 3 grills and seating for at least twelve (among two tables) with strung quaintly-lit lighting that availed a cookout to entertain my two sons from nyc and their dates (a party of 6). No one cared who we were or whether they had seen us before and were all quite friendly...like your own next-door neighbors. Anthony was expedient in his communications, and ck-in/out was most accomodating to our specific needs. Anthony's home: Immaculate, sufficient w/towels, sheets, pillows, kitchen needs, internet, cable tv, and furnishings sufficient as presentable to your guests, if you have them. It'a 2-story walk up (easy with my boat-load of luggage and groceries). The bed, very important to me, was awesome. The bathroom is located beyond the bedroom, which was fine for us; but if you're a slob in your travels in the bedroom and care about that, move on to another option. The bathroom was immaculate and spacious. Consider, though, this apt has windows in front and back as well as in the bathroom, so the breeze flows nicely. There's also air-conditioning if you prefer. The natural, hardwood floor throughout slants a bit just in the kitchen area, but THAT'S just it...you gotta love NYC living to appreciate that! I cooked, between the kitchen and two of the grills, a fabulous meal; and the only thing I brought with me in planning ahead was large serving platters. Everything else was there. Anthony's cooking essentials are very good; and I consider myself a good cook, so my standards are high in that regard. Only need I had was in the coffee area. He has a great pot that's perfect for one cup or cappucino, but not for my natural 3 in the morn; however, my husband quickly availed by boiling water in the tea kettle and had my 2nd and 3rd ready before I finished each last. There's also a shop to get coffee ten steps outside the apt, though. The neighborhood: East Village/Alphabet City... perfect, if you do your research well for restaurants and lively night scene...and totally quiet for sleeping. Thompkins Park is right there for additional green respite. Subway/cab availability great. We would definitely request Anthony's place again. Thank you, Anthony, for availing your place to us. We had a great stay! I just wish I had made enough of my sauce to leave for you, but my boys took the leftovers! We thank you dearly!
