The space

~Queen bed, full bath, small kitchen. Perfect for one or two person.
~Quiet, historic street off West End Avenue.
~I think this place is perfect, and you'll love it too if . . .
~You prefer warm, dark, cozy over sunny, big and bright. Writers, readers, binge watchers. And/or those who are out all day and just use the apartment as a big bedroom.
~FYI, because it is on the ground floor, you will hear my neighbors come and go during peak hours - in the morning to work, esp. And the buzzer on the intercom at dinner time, since many people order dinner in on weeknights.

WiFi, basic cable, ChromeCast, landline with unlimited calls within the US, wireless printer.
Bed and bath linens provided.
Kitchen is small but geared up
Closet space

The neighborhood

Full of life.

Getting around

Walk (or subway/taxi) to Museum of Natural History, Lincoln Center, Julliard, Alvin Ailey, Central Park, Columbus Circle.
~Subway line 1,2,3, = main artery. Goes all the way downtown. Or up to Harlem.
~Short train ride to Penn Station/Amtrak and Port Authority.
~Very easy to catch a taxi on Broadway.

Other things to note

Please don't hesitate to ask any questions at all.

House Rules
No smoking
No parties or events

Please be nice to my things - everything has sentimental value, if not much monetary value.
Please keep kitchen and bath extraordinarily clean.
This is why: If you are scrupulous with crumbs, garbage, surfaces, and the floor as we are, you are unlikely to meet any of the various species of unwanted visitors for which NYC has long been infamous. If not, you may be unpleasantly surprised.

Toss garbage/recycling frequently, but always when you leave and always at night before bed. Use the proper bins outside. We do not have garbage cans inside on purpose. We reuse shopping bags instead.
Use whatever you need, but help us out by practicing conservation - electrics, paper products, linens and the like. Reuse your towels and/ or take advantage of the inexpensive, fast laundry service nearby.
KEYS. Don't lose them.

We enjoy both traveling and hosting with Airbnb (and similar sites) that encourage adventure, embracing uncertainty and authenticity over the bland and generic.
It's especially nice to host independent, self-reliant types who are as curious about the world and considerate of others as we hope to be.
