The Space

I am a photographer/entrepreneur living in a spacious fourth-floor 2-bedroom apartment in East Village - one room which I rent out on a regular basis to responsible, mature adults who'd like a clean, comfortable place to stay in a hip downtown NYC neighborhood but don't want to spend $300 a night for a hotel. I live in the second bedroom.

About the Room:
This is a private room with a very comfortable queen bed for guests. The room includes large 8 drawer dresser and closet space, fresh linens and towels, soap & shampoo, hairdryer, breakfast snacks, coffee & tea, kettle, wifi, air conditioning unit, heat.

Guest Access

Guests have access to all common areas of the apartment to use at their leisure including kitchen, living area w/large flatscreen tv, and bathroom.

I am happy to accompany guests up to the rooftop to take photos of the beautiful NYC skyline - amazing views of Freedom Tower and Empire State building.

Interaction with Guests

I've hosted guests from all over the world and I enjoy helping them to explore this great city and make the most of their stay while here.

I am happy to interact with guests as much or as little as they please - it is entirely up to my guests.

The Neighborhood

If you've ever wanted to experience the New York City this is a perfect way to do it! Spend your stay in one of the coolest and most unique neighborhoods in NYC - the East Village! The original home of the Hipster, the East Village is filled with artists and musicians, and is one of the most colorful and culturally diverse neighborhoods in the city. The apartment is on a great block with lots of new restaurants and bars popping up all around and is surrounded by coffee shops and outdoor cafe's (weather permitting). The subway is only 2 short blocks away making it very easy and convenient to explore the rest of the city.

The East Village is one of the best neighborhoods in NYC for Ethnic Food. There is a full service laundromat in the same building.

Getting around

1 block from the L Train and close to Union Square (all subway lines R/Q/N/4/5/6/L), Lower East Side, Soho, and only 1 stop from Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Two blocks from Thompkins Square Park and three blocks from East River which is great for jogging or walking. Restaurants, bars, and coffee shops galore (Westville, Back Forty, Northern Spy Co., Ost Cafe, Ciao for Now, Kotobuki, Motorino).

Other Things to Note

This apartment is located on the forth floor of a walk up.

I have 3 cats - Maggy, Lucy, & Zoe. I've had them for 14yrs; they're well behaved, super fun and lovable - and they'll expect you to treat them the same.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Perfectly located, neat apartment with an excellent host. Evan is an easy going guy with a good knowledge of his city. We had an amazing time, would definitely recommend staying here, especially if you are looking for the vibrance of the East Village. So close to the L-train, one stop from Williamsburg and within walking distance of shopping heaven Soho.
    If you have a cat allergy, it's not the place for you as Evan's very friendly cats are definitely the queens of the apartment!

  • We stayed at Evan's apartment in East Village for one week and it was absolutely great. The apartment was bright, clean and perfectly located for discovering NY. Evan was a super cool host and the three cats were more than lovely. He knows his hood very well and gave us heaps of cool tips. So if you go to NY, stay at Evan's!

  • Concernant l'appartement:
    Nous sommes resté une semaine chez Evan.
    L'appartement est exactement comme sur les photos, très propre, il est situé dans un quartier vraiment agréable avec de l'animation et une multitude de restaurants.
    Le métro est à proximité et il y a une supérette entre l'appartement et le métro.
    Seul vrai point négatif; l'appartement est au 4eme étage d'un bâtiment sans ascenseur, ce qui n'est pas évident pour monter et descendre les grosses valises.

    Concernant Evan:
    C'est un hôte très accueillant et discret qui n'hésitera jamais à vous conseiller dans le choix de vos sorties, restaurants....
    Il mettra d'ailleurs à votre disposition un book de bienvenue répertoriant ses diverses recommandations à travers Manhattan.
    Cela dit Evan peut montrer un peu d'agacement face à l'incompréhension dû à la barrière de la langue.

    Nous recommandons donc ce logement sans hésitations

  • I stayed for almost a week at Evan's apartment. The location is fantastic, in a vibrant neighbourhood with lots of cute shops and great cafes. Plus easy walking to subway stations to see the rest of NY.

    The apartment is light, quiet and comfortable. Evan (email hidden) - with great tips for the local scene. And there are three friendly cats to entertain you if you do stay in.

    If I get to go back to New York I'd stay there again.

  • It was a perfect stay in Ewans home!
    he was an always kind host and had a lot of good advices where to go out in this lovely neighbourhood. If you stay there you should follow Ewans ecomendation for sushi venue (tasty!) Everything was well organized and easy. The Appartment is remarkable as you can see from the pictures. it is quiet, comfortable and all the facilities are cosy and clean bed was cosy too - what to say: we really felt home!
    The stay at Ewans home was the starting point of a longer journey for us and we were lucky that it started that well! We would like to thank for the great time. We really enjoyed it! and would love to come back once we are in New York again.

  • As a New Yorker who has lived in this neighborhood for a few years, I can say this one of the nicer apartments I've stayed in.

    Recently remodeled, sizeable bedroom, and big bathroom make this a steal. Evan is (email hidden), who provides great recommendations on new restaurants and the bustling nyc nightlife.

    Will definitely book this again if available

I am a photographer/entrepreneur in love with thrill seeking activities, travel, and spending time with family and friends. I've lived in the East Village for the last 1.5 years and I absolutely love it - it is truly one of the best blocks in the East Village and close to all subways. I love eating out and brunch on the weekends - my two favorite brunch spots in the area are Back Forty and Northern Spy Co.
