The Space

Please share a photo and your schedule and plans while here in NYC. PLEASE UNDERSTAND THIS IS SUITED BEST FOR FEMALES/ONLY. Use of my piano is available to you often, and classical music is often played in the background I still have that empty nest syndrome and love opening up my home to young people traveling or here for audition,, rehearsal, or internships, etc. Health oriented kitchen offering yogurt , cereals,fresh fruits and more for breakfast Limited use of kitchen, with NO SHELLFISH COOKED IN HOME.. Preference for guests who will have a busy schedule and not for those wanting to stay in NO COUCH POTATO'S ,, but instead for those wanting to tour, have a predetermined situation (ie: academic, courses, project work ) or have an active schedule. I have a beautiful , loving pooch , appropriately named "Sweety, who will offer you kisses , or leave you to be, whatever you might prefer. This is located in Northern Manhattan, a lovely area, which is on the A train line, at 191st street stop. Its an express train, which gets you to 59th street in only 20 minutes. The 1 train is only a block away, to a Trader Joe's at 72nd or to 42nd Street , Times Square . There is a corner "Deals Store," with toiletriesk snacks and food, and more at bargain prices and many items only $1. A burger and wine (email hidden), a Russian Market are just around the corner from your home away from home in NYC I am a mature lady who paints portraits and sings and will give over your privacy if needed or chit chat if you would like my company . I have so enjoyed the company of many of my guests and hope that you and I will enjoy the company of one another too ! My hope is that you are comfortable and happy as my guest.. Spring is upon us which is a great time to experience beautiful Ft Tryon Park Washington Heights offer , which is ideal for walking, running, meditating and more. This park houses the beautiful architecture and museum called "The Cloisters" I will offer any suggestions and ideas for exploring this wonderful and stimulating and exciting city, IF YOU NEED MY HELP , you need to JUST ASK............. COME VISIT

Interaction with Guests

I usually leave this up to my guests, but it is certainly much sweeter to chit chat a bit with one another. I hope they will feel like a friend, while here. Some guest consider me like their äuntie !!!

The Neighborhood

We are fortunate to have one of the most beautiful parks in the United States right here in the hood, Ft Tryon Park. This offers you a place of solitude for yoga, running, walking or nice conversations with friends , etc. There is a wonderful cafe, New Leaf Cafe and views that are worthy of photographic capture.

Getting around

One reason I moved here is the easy access of the express A train Bringing you to 59th street in a quick 20 minutes The station is just across the street and the 1 train one block away. There is also Broadway where you can catch buses if you prefer and take the 7 bus up to Riverdale where there are great stores to shop in, such as Lots Less Closeouts, and more.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Susan was a kind and hospitable host who welcomed me into her home and made sure I was comfortable. Her apartment is cozy and well decorated in a classic apartment building, in a very beautiful area of Manhattan. The location and nearby park made it a pleasure to stay and travel there. I was working during my time in NYC, so I was only able to visit during the evenings. I enjoyed my conversations with her, and learned a lot about her city.

  • I absolutely adored staying with Susan. She is a wonderful, kind and vivacious host who does everything in her power to make you feel welcome and appreciated. The location is a bit away from the center of Manhattan which is actually great - you feel like you're in the suburbs with the beautiful Fort Tryon park right across, while still only being a metro ride away from the city (incidentally, the metro stop couldn't be closer). I highly recommend staying with Susan if you're looking for a beautiful, cosy and welcoming home! Oh, and Sweety really is the sweetest.

  • It is very lucky for me to have a couch stay in Zannie's house. She is a very modern, fashionable, lovely and friendly woman. Her house is full of love and arts. I love her and her dog Sweety, they love me too. I hope they can travel in China and it is my pleasure to be their guide around China.A fantastic memory in New York and in Zannie's house.

  • Zannie is now like my stepmother in New York. She is really warm and makes you feel home in an instant. She is really open-minded, has a good sense of humour, and likes chatting about everything. Her place is very homey and offers you great breakfast. I can only recommend her to everyone!

self employed , and self consumed
I am a mature lady, with a great love for music, faces, and dogs. I paint portraits and sing as a hobby and adore classical music , with my current favorite, Cesar Francks violin & piano 4th movement piece. I prefer my guests to have respect for my home and a courtesy and decency that should be performed in any setting, especially as a guest in someone's home. I as a host, will do everything to make them comfortable, safe and respect their need for privacy. I am a mother of aN ivy leage graduate actor/musical theater, etc son, with an ever present empty nest syndrome. This has led me to share my apartment with mostly young actresses and opera singers, who have shared their talents, enthusiasm and knowledge with me, since I also love to sing. I am health oriented and occasionally may offer to share my food with my guests. I am tidy, and clean and expect my guest to be of a similar inclination. As a dog lover , I most recently acquired a darling spaniel, mix who is the most wonderful, sweet loving easy going pooch Ive ever had. I prefer another dog lover to share my home Im a mellow and fun old gal who enjoys the beauty and enthusiasm that is "youth". Bring your musical voice, your creative ideas or just come with your ambitions and zest and share my abode .
