About this listing
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 comfortable West Elm queen-sized sleeper sofa and two lovely sitting chairs. The TV is new but there is NO CABLE. You can connect your laptop to it if you wish or you can use apple TV.
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.
Guests have access to everything.
Interaction with Guests
I enjoy meeting my guests upon arrival and being available to them for tips, and help though out their stay if I am in town.
THE 1 TRAIN IS RIGHT ON THE CORNER.
Please, no parties or smoking....anything.
-As a courtesy to the neighbors below (and to keep the New York streets outside of the apartment), please remove shoes when inside the apartment :)
-Please don't steal or destroy anything.
-No feet (shoes) on the couch or bed(s)....this shouldn't be an issue, though, since y'all won't be wearing shoes in the apartment.
-If you happen to meet the super or the neighbors....you are friends of mine and are visiting NYC.
-Upon departure, please strip the bed(s) and put all linens and towels in a pile on the floor; if you have used any dishes, please clean them. I appreciate you leaving the apartment tidy and clean!
-most of all.......Have fun!!
