Welcome to my home!
I am very happy to be living in this great apartment and you will be equally happy with your stay here. It is located in the heart of Chelsea on 7th (email hidden)is 4th floor apartment is roughly 500 square feet. It is a true one bedroom with a full kitchen, bathroom and a large living room. The bedroom is 10'x10' with a picture window overlooking 7th Avenue & 23rd Street. There is bright natural sunlight into the bedroom in the morning. But don't worry, I have nice blinds that make the mornings and evenings very pleasant.
Even more pleasant is the Queen-size Westin Heavenly Bed that you'll be sleeping on! The bedroom faces the street so the rest of the apartment gets very little natural light during the day.
Full disclosure: the photographer made the apartment much brighter than it is. It's no dungeon but not quite as flush with light as it appears to be in the airbnb photos.
All of my furniture is new so please be respectful. No smoking is allowed. I have a large, new refrigerator, a 40" flat screen TV (limited cable), a comfortable West Elm queen-sized sleeper sofa and two lovely sitting chairs.
The bathroom is vintage. It's yellow tile and wall-to-wall mirrors say "Hello, 1950's" but I just retiled the floor so it is all freshened up for you! I provide linens and towels. Please bring your own food and toiletries.
Once you walk into the lovely little oasis that I call home, you're in for a treat! This is a safe, high-traffic neighborhood at all hours of the day. The building has about 40 units throughout 6 floors. There is an elevator in the building (up five steps from the entrance).
The 1 (red) train is located directly below the building (you would never know it is there). The C & E (blue) trains are one avenue west on 8th Ave., the F & M (orange) are one avenue east on 6th Ave. Madison Square Park/Flatiron and the N & R (yellow) trains are two avenues east at 5th Ave/Broadway. I am 10 blocks south of Penn Station, Madison Square Garden, and the LIRR. Only 9 blocks south is the West Village and a healthy walk to Union Square and Times Square!
Chelsea has wonderful local and brand name shopping, many restaurants and a great nightlife for all types of crowds! THE BEST PART--you're walking distance to one of NYC's most popular outdoor attractions, the Highline.

Even with the super wintery and challenging weather conditions Johnny was extremely flexible and hospitable.
His apartment is a great combo of location ( steps from 1 train) and style! I felt right at home, he was communicative all week and made the stay very comfortable and east.
One note- the bed is super comfortable, so I slept like a baby and was well rested for my meetings.
We absolute fell in love with Johnny's place! We were staying in the city to attend a few concerts at Madison Square Garden, and the location could not have been more perfect; only a brief 8 minute walk to the Garden! With a Whole Foods only a couple blocks away, and plenty of shopping and restaurants to choose from at a very short walking distance, everything was at our finger tips. Also- very easy access to subway stations as there was one right outside of the building.
When we first arrived to Johnny's place he greeted us with excitement and answers to any of the questions we had. He knows the city quite well... Taco Express and Doughnut Plant were AMAZING suggestions!! Johnny even checked in with us a couple of days into the stay just to make sure everything was going perfectly; it certainly was!
The apartment itself was perfect for the 4 of us. TONS of closet space for storage, great kitchen for home cooked meals, and awesome living/dining space for anything and everything. HUGE pull-out couch, and tons of blankets, pillows, and linens to use. We honestly could not have been happier with our stay, and will absolutely be using Johnny's place in the future!!
Highly Recommend Johnny's place! Amazing location, super central - it has everything you need and it's so easy to get around. Super close to penn station and easy if you are coming from the airport. Whole Foods, Starbucks, CITIbikes and the subway are all within a 1 minute walk from his front door! The central location means you can walk to all the sites (Broadway, Soho, Central Park, Meatpacking district) or hop in a quick cab to get to where you need. Plus, Johnny is the nicest and super helpful with tons of local tips.
The space is very clean and cozy in a quiet and safe building. We had a great weekend and will definitely come back!!
Johnny's apartment is beautifully designed and perfectly comfortable. It's true the main living space is dark BUT honestly it's nothing to worry about, flick on a few lights and it's a pretty as the picture. And light floods in through the bedroom.
I slept on the pull out sofa bed and it was VERY comfortable and large. And would easily sleep two. Plenty of room.
Location is fab - right in the centre of it all making it very easy to get around the city.
Johnny was easy to communicate with before & during, it was completely stress free.
He also left a welcoming message on the blackboard along with wifi password. He added a happy birthday message for both my parents & a lovely bottle of vino.
Thanks Johnny, I would highly recommend your apartment to anyone that was visiting NYC.
Johnny is a wonderful host who went above and beyond in every way. He was easy to communicate with and gave up his time to give us advice about the city. We had a few issues on our first night but Johnny fixed them promptly the next day.
The apartment is in a perfect location, right above the red line subway and walking distance to great Chelsea restaurants and the High-line. The supermarket just a block down the street was handy too.
We had everything we needed and the apartment was really comfortable. The only thing we struggled with was the street noise in the bedroom. We would definitely recommend earplugs or sleep on the sofa in the lounge area as it was a lot quieter in there.
Thanks for a great stay Johnny.
We are terribly late reviewing our stay in Sept 2013 - apologies!
We had the most fantastic time in Johnny's apartment - great host, great location.
Johnny met us as arranged, was really friendly and explained all kinds of helpful things. Great touch to leave flowers, wine and a welcome message on the chalk board.

We had a wonderful stay at Johnny's apartment. It's perfectly located in Chelsea. You have everything you need right outside the door. Close to the subway, easy to get around.
The apartment was lovely, beautifully furnished and had everything we needed. We loved the personalized greeting that met us on the chalkboard :)
Would love to stay there again!
Me and my family had an amazing time in NYC. We wouldn't have made this great experience without Johnny and his stunning apartment! From arrival till departure Johnny was an outstanding host. In case of any questions he always had a quick answer. He really knows his neighborhood and has lots of recommendations for restaurants etc. His apartment offered everything we needed. We were a party of four and had enough place for us, our luggage and our shopping haul. The flat is well equipped with a full kitchen and a dining table for four. So it is ideal for having breakfast and starting the day.
We really took full advantage of the apartment's location. Chelsea is great for discovering the whole city on foot.
Beside of all that Johnny was extraordinarily reliable, congenial and cheerful. I really hope that we will stay in contact and meet again. If he will ever travel to Europe he is a welcome guest in our flat.
If your are looking for the perfect apartment in NYC, don't hesitate to contact Johnny!!!
Really great location, easy to get anywhere...... Johnny was very helpful.
Johnny was the perfect host! We had everything we needed and more. We were even welcomed with champagne and Happy New Year chalk board message. Johnny was very easy to communicate with and made sure we were well taken care of. The apartment was lovely and very conveniently located. It really made our trip.
