The space

Your bedroom is a comfortable, private space with room for all your things. It's located just a 3 minute walk from the subway and 7 minutes from Central Park. You'll have access to a fully stocked full kitchen, a spacious, cozy living room, and full bathroom.

The bedroom has great natural lighting and has a comfortable, two-person bed with a nightstand, closet, and an additional over-head storage space, along with shelves for all of your things. Linens and towels are provided for you.

Within a 10 minute walk, there are numerous wonderful restaurants, boutique shopping stores, grocery stores, and other attractions, like museums and, of course, Central Park. Seeing the park in the snow isn't to be missed!

What makes this space especially attractive to visitors is how close it is to the subway. You are exactly two blocks away from the subway entrance, which means about a 3 minute walk!

I love hosting, and meeting people from all around. For those who want the insider's perspective, I love sharing what I know about the City and even taking people around, if they like. I hope to meet you soon! And please be sure to let me know if you have any questions at all!

Interaction with guests

I live here, too, so will often be here to help you with any questions you may have!

Getting around

The subway is only 2 blocks away.

Other things to note

*ONLY TAKE YELLOW TAXIS!* Or you can take a car service you hired ahead of time. Everything else is a scam. If someone approaches you in the airport and offers you a ride, say no. I just learned that one of my guests paid $140 to get from the airport to here. You should only pay about $65 (including tip!) to get from the airport to here via yellow tax

We rented Alex's for a week and it was Great location just a few minutes to the subway on foot. A lot of restaurants and delis for those who like to munch late at night. Clean and Alex is super friendly and accessible! Two can stay and fit perfectly!

Very good value apartment that is well connected via subways stations within 5 min walks and also very close to Central Park and all the museums of Fifth Avneue and the beautiful Upper East Side. The room is quite small but has everything you will need including a comfy bed! Would recommend this apartment for value for money!

Such a great location! It's 2 streets away from the 6 train which can take you into the centre of Manhattan in approx 15 minutes. Alex and his sister Natalie are super friendly and chilled out, we were only there to sleep, spent too much time exploring New York, but Alex offered us some great advice on what was close by. Would recommend his place to anyone, it was just what we needed :)

Perfect location at a great price. 1 min from metro. Alex and his sister Natalie were very friendly. Nice warm and clean room. We had a great 4 days in New York and this room was a perfect base. I would definitely recommend this room to everyone. Thank you

I had a great time at Alex's. Private room with kitchen and bathroom. Alex and his sister were very friendly and offered great advice to someone who has never been to New York before. Really close to the subway and restaurants.

Good location (close to metro) and quiet room! Bathroom would have needed a clean. Check-in and out were really uncomplicated (we arrived at midnight, which wasn't a problem for Alex). He and his sister were nice hosts!

I love meeting new people just as much as I love New York City and really enjoy introducing new people to the city. When I'm not out taking a walk along a new street or avenue or trying a new cafe, I'm enjoying learning Salsa, volunteering, keeping fit at the gym, going to jazz clubs, and spending time with my friends.

I'm an international, having been born in Germany and growing up there until my teens. I'm a dual-citizen and speak both languages. I also speak Norwegian (I have a lot of Scandinavian friends here because of that) and have a beginner's understanding of Spanish. I'm presently deciding on whether I should perfect my Spanish or pick up another language entirely.
