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!
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
Please be as quiet as possible when coming and going, to be respectful of the neighbor's peace. The only exception will have to be when opening and closing the apartment door, as it requires a hardy closing to stay shut.
Alex was very kind, met our every request. the description of the apartment was truthful. The quiet neighborhood, great location for those visiting New York.
Alex was very helpful in any situation. He had everything prepared for our arrival and was very international orientated. We also had a good time with him at a jazzclub. The location of his apartment is awesome, since its so close to the subway
Alex was a great host. We arrived quite late but it wasn't a problem for him at all. He was always friendly, helpful and good for conversations about the real New York life.
The apartment is located just a short walk to Central Park, perfect for a run in the morning. The next subway is just a few minutes away and it was totally safe to walk there even at late night.
The apartment itself was very clean and well equipped for our homemade dinners.
Vi havde en dejlig ferie i New York, og ikke mindst hos Alex. Meget venlig og imødekommende vært, dejlig lejlighed og meget central placeret i byen.
Vi vil helt sikker anbefalde Alex som vært, ved jeres næste ferie. Uden hans anbefaldinger var vi aldrig endt i Brooklyn, til en omgang lækker morgenmad.
It was our first time using airbnb. Alex was really helpul all the time. Unfortunately we didn't met him but he was always one e-mal away. Allan (Alex's friend) gave us the keys when we arrived and also was really helpful. The neighborhood is really quite and safe; when it was time to sleep you never hear anything outside. The apartment looks exactly like it was shown in the pics. we really enjoyed our stay in New York .
My friend and I stayed at Alex's apartment for almost a week. We love it so much. The place is very close to the subway station. It is very convenient for us to explore NYC. Plus, Alex is a nice and friendly host. He prepared every things and provided useful information to us. Overall, we have a great experience!
Alex was a great host, he helped us in all we needed. The apartment is so close to subway station.
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.
