About this listing
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. You can hail yellow cabs on the street at any hour, or use Uber. (Taxi from JFK to Manhattan is a flat rate of $52)
Other Things to Note
Wifi is 'Arthouse', password is 'redcarpet' (alternate wifi is 'Antando', password is also 'redcarpet')
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.
Great ceiling fan, an aircondtioner, and abundant heating in colder weather. The sofa does not fold out, but is very comfortable for an individual. There is extra bedding for it
