About this listing
Live like a New Yorker instead of staying in a stuffy, overpriced hotel. My small yet cozy one bedroom apartment is nestled in the southern part of the historic lower east side, steps to the subway and walking distance to the coolest neighborhoods.
Special: Jan - Feb (phone number hidden) a night.
( Before reading description, PLEASE NOTE: do not automatically book with out messaging me first.
At the bottom of this listing, under "ABOUT THE HOST" there is a button underneath my profile that says CONTACT HOST- that is how you message me. Clicking on the REQUEST TO BOOK button on the right and putting in your credit card information is booking the place. I won't accept bookings until I am introduced to you through a message. Thanks!)
My apartment is a cute, cozy, 1 bdrm apt in the Lower East Side (LES) adjacent to Chinatown in lower Manhattan, steps to F train, East Broadway stop and very close to Canal/Delancey streets where many hip bars, restaurants and shops are in the LES. Apt is clean, has a fully equipped kitchen, cable TV, A/C, heat, and wireless internet. Apt is located on 2nd floor of well maintained walk up building. Walking distance to Soho, East Village, Little Italy, Chinatown and very close to Dumbo and Williamsburg, Brooklyn. You have place to yourself-better than a hotel!
Prices listed are for up to two people only. Possible to accommodate a 3rd (for extra charge), but ideal for two.
Regular rate (unless special is indicated at top of this description or a holiday price which might be lower or higher): $140 a night for up to two people depending on time of year. $15 extra per person after 2 people.
As of now, I prefer only booking for minimum 7 days and more. Might make an exception to fill in time slots, so inquire anyway.
If you prefer not to have a profile, please let me know a little about yourself in your initial inquiry. I'm more inclined to accept reservations from inquiries with pictures and properly informed profiles. Thanks.
No need to bring linens or towels - I have plenty.
***Please remember that this is my personal apartment, meaning it's "lived in" and filled with my personal items. I rent my place out because I travel and try to save money to build my business. When I'm back in NYC, I stay here regularly. This is not a hotel room, nor is it a new building or new apartment. I keep it very tidy and as clean as possible and have great reviews to reflect my apartment. Thanks.
Guests have access to the whole apartment.
Interaction with Guests
This listing is for the whole apartment I will not be staying there. I will check in sporadically during your stay and if in town, during your stay, am accessible anytime.
Historically, the Lower East Side was a stopping ground for immigrants who just arrived in NYC and was filled with tenements. There is an awesome Tenement Museum now on Orchard street, not far from my apartment.
The Lower East Side has, in my opinion, two identities. The eastern side is very residential. The western, more in part is a hip, night time destinations with many bars, restaurants, galleries, cafes, independent shops, etc. My apartment is a couple of minutes from the hip part.
My particular street is very much in transition definitely going through gentrification. My block has now three renovated buildings, including mine and I suspect in a few years, will be completely different.
My immediate neighborhood is a mix of people - a real reflection of NYC diversity - Asian, Latin, Jewish, Black, young professionals, hipsters, artists, etc. It's a cool mix. The street is urban for sure but very safe. My building is filled with young professionals, creative types - one married couple, a lawyer and hipsters and me.
F train, East Broadway stop is seconds away, very convenient and per my reviews, one of the things people love about my place.
The East Broadway stop is the last stop in Manhattan before it heads to Dumbo in Brooklyn The F train also goes up the center of Manhattan and can take you to the East Village, Soho, West Village, Chelsea, Time Square, Rockefeller Center and the southern part of Central Park. It's the best train! :)
Other Things to Note
This is my personal apartment. It's not a business. It's not a hotel. It's not perfect. I host often and keep up with my place because of that. I try to keep it as clean as possible. However, it does have imperfections like anyone's home. If you expect perfection, it's best you book a hotel. :)
No smoking in apartment. No Pets allowed.
Please leave apartment as you found it.
