The Space

Welcome to my listing:

Spacious comfortable bedroom with 1 queen size bed, air conditioner, heating, wireless internet, laptop computer if needed and television! You will also have access to a shared fully equipped kitchen with new appliances, and a shared bathroom.

This spacious private room lets you relax away from the noise of Manhattan while still being in Manhattan. You are 1 block away from the subway A train which will take you to Times Square in 20-25 minutes. You are also a 5 minute walk from scenic overlooks of the George Washington Bridge and the Hudson River. Also within walking distance is the beautiful Fort Tryon Park and the Historic Cloisters Museum.

I (email hidden) who used to work for Trek America (look it up online!) years ago, so I have no problem answering questions about where to go and great places to see. I work full time, so I will be out of the apartment most weekdays from 9am until 6pm. I will give you a key, provide you with fresh clean towels and linens, and help you with any questions you have about the city and getting around. You can come and go as you please. Their are many places that deliver all kinds of food day and night. But you will also have access to my kitchen if you feel like cooking. For laundry, there are paid washers and dryers in the apartment building.

There is NO SMOKING in the actual room or apartment but feel free to smoke outside or go out on the fire escape and close the window behind you.

Please be respectful of the apartment and my neighbors by:

Cleaning up after yourself
Not playing music too loud after 10pm
Not smoking in the stairwell
And generally being a kind person

Welcome to NEW YORK CITY! I hope you enjoy your stay.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Vinny (email hidden), although we didn't spend much time with him ( as he went to work and we were out till late every day) , he was always interested how we are and if we need any help with anything. The apartment is in a safe and quiet neighbourhood and the room was spacious and bed comfortable. One day Vinny even prepared breakfast for us (so we had a chance to taste typical American pancakes - they tasted great :) ).
    I would definitely recommend this place.

  • Vinny is really an excellent host for everyone who comes to New York for the first time and wants to be guided, to have someone to rely on for help if needed ! He was always there to give us the best plans, a piece of advice, and to be sure that everything was going well !
    The location of the room is good thanks to the subway and it is very close to Manhattan Downtown. The room is spacious, comfortable, we had all we needed ! :-D

  • Vinny is a very nice and helpful person. It was a very spacious and well maintained room. When we arrived, he gave us a tour of the neighborhood (supermarket, metrostation, restaurants). His apartment is located less than 5 minutes from the metro (perfect). We thought it was a very safe neighborhood. We would recommend everyone to (email hidden). We had a great (email hidden)anks Vinny.

  • Vinny was a very welcoming and wonderful host. His apartment is lovely and the room is very comfortable. Everything was very easy, from arrival to departure. He had great pro tips about riding the subway and our plans in New York, too-we went to see a Broadway show and he knew to tell us to go early for that particular show for a chance to have an on stage drink with the cast. We had a great stay and would definitely recommend it to others!!!

I am a television producer and cameraman. I love the city and get to explore it everyday as part of my job. And I will happily pass that knowledge on to you so you get to see the REAL New York. I am fun, relaxed, and drama free but also have zero tolerance for inappropriate or disrespectful behavior of any kind. As long as that is understood we will get along brilliantly. I love to travel and used to (email hidden) for Trek America (check it out online!) and got to meet people from around the world and show them some of the best spots in the United States. I will be happy to answer any questions you have while you stay in New York City. My work schedule is pretty busy so you will have the place to yourself most of the time. I work Monday - Friday and leave the apartment by 8am and I'm usually back by 6 or 7pm. I ask that you keep the noise level down after 10pm during the week, but I have no problem with late nights on the weekends. I look forward to meeting new people, let me know if I can answer any questions for you.
