This is in a home of a creative lady who has a very health oriented lifestyle and kitchen. The piano is a lovely sounding additon and those who play may certainly use it. I have a darling sweet pooch, who will do nothing more than like you !
As someone who is an artist of sorts and has studied the face as a focus, with a great interest in psychology and human nature (pooch nature too , but then we are all animals!, they are just sweeter than most humans) I prefer seeing photos of the guests that are inquiring about my room, I am more comfortable having female guests or couples and might consider a small house broken pooch, if it enjoys other dogs (mine) Fall is the next season upon us. The many colored leaves will be your view out the window up here in Northern Manhattan where a most beautiful park, Ft Tryon Park which also houses the Cloisters Musem), is right outside your doorstep. There is always a cool breeze up here in Northern Manhatten, . It is a musical home with a radio in
available. A full new mattress, with a window bench and chair in bedroom with dresser and place to hang clothes. There is a DVD player/tv. There are books to read and a sweet sounding piano to play. While here, you may use my bicycle for a small fee. I offer up breakfast foods until 11am (always yogurt and granola available) and may occasionally offer dinner. My kitchen welcomes other healthy eating and possibly leaning towards vegetarian cooking in the home . I have a darling pooch that is very clean, respectful and loving , I have a health oriented home kitchen and would prefer like minded guests. Preference for guests who will have a busy schedule and not for those wanting to stay in, but instead for those wanting to tour and have an active schedule while in NYC
Its a quiet and calm environment to hang your hat while in exciting NYC. Right next to the A train and 1 block from the 1 train. You are on 59th street in 20 minutes!!
A classical music environment to be shared with a mature lady who enjoys a quiet type home while she is painting portraits, reading or caring for her loveable pooch, and making her guests feel at home. I have enjoyed the company of many of my guests and hope that you and I will also enjoy your time in my home perhaps a toast of wine or cup of tea to toast to your visit and adventure in this great city that is NEW YORK
Light use of kitchen with preference for vegetarian cooking
NO Shellfish in home
NO Beef cooked in home
Interaction with Guests
thats really up to my guests and I try to take clues from them, but of course, if we enjoy one anothers company that is an extra dividend !!!
I love the aspect that we have a most beautiful park right here in the "hood"", Fort Tryon Park. For runs, for walks, for yoga, meditation or conversations and a great restaurants in the park called "New Leaf Cafe"".
In addition the neighborhood is a quieter retreat from the hustle and bustle and mania that can sometimes be NYC
One reason I moved here is the easy breezy access to the express A train, which is just across the street. In addition the 1 train is only 1 block away. We are right near broadway and for some great shopping , at lower costs thatn downtown, you can take a 7bus or the 1 train up to Riverdale for great shopping.
Other Things to Note
I think my home and situation is much better suited for female guests. With the proximity of coziness , i think this suits us better . Of course, couples are also invited to stay as my guest.
Shoes off when entering and placed in hall rack. Its a must in NYC. Food must not be eaten in bedroom.
Please put clothing into drawers and hang them, and do not live out of suitcases They may carry unwanted guests.
The obvious of NO SMOKING INSIDE
(NOR ANYONE WHO SMOKES OUTSIDE THE APARTMENT )
a health oriented kitchen, prefer no beef m and ABSOLUTELY NO SHELLFISH COOKED IN HOME
Clean and tidy and respectful host expects the same.
music is important, so I prefer someone with classical music /musical theater, or jazz interests.
As guests , only you are entitled to enter this apartment.
No heavy perfumes please.

I came to NY for my intensive summer program, and spent with this wonderful person more then a week.
Susan (Zannie) is very interesting, creative, nice and warm person. When you just enter to her flat you can feel special cosy atmosphere. Her dog, Sweety, is the most adorable and lovely animal I've ever met!
Flat is so clean, comfortable, full of light and art =)
It is very close to subway, and you will find stores near by.
Also, there are a lot of green places outside (parks).
I want to come back there, as soon as possible!
Highly recommended this place to everyone!
My daughter and I stayed with Zannie for four nights while we were visiting from Seattle. We were very happy our accommodations. Zannie is extremely friendly, interesting and helpful. She even had a nice dinner for us when we arrived at 8:00 on a Sunday night. Her apartment is clean and cozy, the bed is comfortable, and Sweety is, well, a real sweetie. It turned out that the building was just a block from where I lived for a short time thirty years ago. The neighbor hasn’t changed much; it doesn’t have much charm, but it’s close to Fort Tryon Park and the Cloisters and very convenient to two subway lines. I would stay with Zannie again.
My sister and I stayed with Zannie and Sweety for almost a week. We had a great time here in a Cozy Musical Creative Hideaway. Since the moment we arrive Zannie was always very attentive with us. We had every day something to eat for breakfast and Internet service was available too. Sweety is the perfect dog, always happy to see you, his name goes perfectly with his character.
All the areas were very clean and we had our space to unpacked and have everything organize for our vacation. Zannie likes to talk and I love that, this makes me feel HOME. The apartment is super close (I would say less than a minute) to the A train, this is the train you’ll need, and the Fort Tyron Park where you can walk and relax if you need it. We feel so thankful for Zannie and Sweety that my words can’t express my gratitude to them.
hi, i chose to stay with Susan twice, i' ve already stayed here the last september and this yer i came (website hidden) is always a pleasure to stay here.....Susan is very sweet and friendly.......her dog is adorable...you can feel free as you stayed your home. She is an artist ..now she is making my portrait. .......I WAS VERY HAPPY TO STAY WITH HER...
I stayed with Zannie for a week and she is a lovely person, and her apartment was a wonderful place to stay while in New York! The location is great, really close to the A train, which takes about 20 minutes to get to midtown with, and the neighbourhood is really quiet and pretty. I highly recommend staying with Zannie if you come to New York!

I am a mature lady, with a great love for music, faces, and dogs. I paint, sing and enjoy classical music and other music also. I am very health knowledgeable and encourage those that are also of this way of life to stay.
I offer healthy foods for a breakfast which usually includes of fruit, yogurt and cereals.. I am tidy, and clean and prefer the same in my guests. As a dog lover , I most recently acquired a darling spaniel, mix who is the most wonderful, sweet loving easy going pooch Ive ever had. I prefer another dog lover to share my home Im a mellow and fun old gal who enjoys the beauty and enthusiasm that is "youth". Bring your musical voice, your creative ideas or just come with your ambitions and zest and share my abode .
I live my life, with the drive and ambition to make things happen, to take action and to grow and evolve and accept and to connect with others, even if only for a moment in time.
