The Space

please first send me a message with a little bit about yourself. You don't have any other expenses for your stay after you book through airbnb. You pay airbnb, they pay me. We don't exchange cash. :-)
$20 for lost keys (paid separately to me before leaving...ONLY if keys are lost)

Clean apt. Very close to subway line 1. 20min to midtown.

I'm renting the room in my apt. The room is freshly painted and clean with a futon bed, shelving unit, armoire, small wall shelf, 2 bedside tables and a fan. I will expect you to leave it in the same condition as when you arrived.

The APT:
There is NO WiFI (Taszo espresso bar nearby has wifi and great coffee) or living room space, you will share the bathroom and kitchen with me. i have everything you may need in the kitchen. you will have to bring your own personal bathroom supplies (shampoo/conditioner).
I'm very clean and organized i hope you will be too. feel free to use pots and pans in the kitchen, just please put them back when done and clean up after yourself :-).

it's 5min walk from subway stop. this is a very quiet area in the neighborhood. on the 1 local train you can get to midtown in 20min. Riverside park is nearby. very close to the Hudson river.

The neighborhood is predominantly Dominican. they are latin, so of course girls will get some attention. but everyone is so nice. some people who are familiar with me always smile and say hello. i feel like i am in my own little neighborhood in this big city.
Taszo espresso bar is next to subway entrance. Great coffee.
There is a great Dominican restaurant, Margot. I highly recommend it. Also really like La Fiesta for Mexican food. About 20min walk on Broadway there is an excellent cafe "tanto dulce cafe". we can talk more about what's nearby when you get here.

Please make yourself at home and take care of my apt as if it were your own. I'm always available to answer any questions you may have. If i don't know, i'll help you find it on the internet.

my house manual and house rules. please read it before you come to my place. thanks!

  • Nel was an excellent host. Although I was only there for a month, she was a terrific roommate and would (email hidden) to the city if you haven't explored NYC before. The apartment is clean and elegant, and the room is a perfect size. The Kitchen and Bathroom were very well kept. As a person, Nel is a delight! She is very sociable but also keen on allowing her guests the space they need.
    Also, the area was a great place to be during hurricane Sandy. We didn't lose power and most shops in the area opened immediately after the storm passed.

I love to eat. NOT COOK :-) I can cook if i really really have to, but eating and traveling are my things. And of course, I love living here in NYC. I also love to travel and meet people from different countries. addendum: I'm starting to like how to cook...surprise surprise!
