This sunny corner apartment is on the top floor of an historic building in the heart of hip downtown, and just a moment's walk from Yale's main campus and some of the best food in the city.
Sunny corner apartment on the top floor of an historic downtown building. It's right next to New Haven's finest luxury hotel in the heart of hip downtown -- but here, you'll have better accommodations at a fraction of the price.
The location is unbeatable. We're one block from Yale campus, across the street from the Yale Art School, and one block from both Yale art galleries as well as the Yale Repertory Theater. Some of the best coffee in New Haven is in the cafe on the bottom floor of our building. Three large corner windows offer a panoramic view of the city, and sunset makes the whole place glow.
Within a one block radius, you'll find a local gastropub with a great beer list; a cozy coffee shop bookstore; Indian, Thai, locavore haute-cusine, and a nationally-acclaimed sushi restaurant. If you're a night owl, there's falafel and fresh-baked cookies available till three in the morning.
The living room and bedroom are separated by French doors. You'll have a fully furnished kitchen with a gas stove, microwave, a full set of spices and a floor-to-ceiling wall of pots and pans. You'll have an Aeron chair, two desks, three typewriters, a Bose surround-sound stereo system, and a comfortable queen-sized bed with a tempur-pedic mattress. And trust me, there's plenty to read. If you need an extra bed, there's a queen-sized air mattress you can set up in the living room, and the leather couch is comfortable too.
Also, there's a wall-sized American flag. See the photos.
Great location, wonderful apartment, very comfortable and convenient for downtown and Yale. Top floor of the building, so no noise from above, and great shower pressure. David was incredibly friendly and responsive. I recommend it to everybody!
Yes, extremely nice host, great location, serious poetry library and well-equipped (though cramped) kitchen. Be prepared for one or two buts - for all its many advantages, this is a crumbly old apartment in a grad-student block. Imagine you’re borrowing your student nephew’s place - a very helpful, hospitable nephew who isn’t entirely house-trained but happens to live exactly where you want to spend some time. I enjoyed it and got a lot of work done.
David is an excellent host. His apartment is welcoming and could not be more convenient to Yale and the Drama School. We enjoyed our time there greatly. He was also very accessible and available if we had any questions.
Dave is an excellent host -- very accommodating and flexible. His apartment is perfectly situated for Yale and the art galleries with lovely views out across to the west of New Haven.
What a wonderful stay! I was in town on a research trip so stayed at David's place for a month. It was lovely and sunny - very clean - nice and quiet. In short, it was perfect for what I needed. David was very welcoming and a good communicator. We met for coffee and he recommended some poems for me to read. Lovely apartment, thoughtful host. Thank you!
David was a very caring host, constantly checking if we needed anything. The apartment is nice, and located in a central and convenient part of New Haven. The apartment has a small but fully equipped kitchen, and David was happy letting us use anything that was in the kitchen.
David was really gorgeous, kind, welcoming and replied very fast to all our questions. The biggest plus of the apartment - apart from its host - is its location and the nice few over NH you have. There are some drawbacks though, which you could all summarize as grad student lodging. The apartment was not overly clean, crammed with David's own stuff, and the windows, especially the frames are in a very bad shape. This sometimes makes it very noisy inside the apartment due to the traffic below, earplugs needed for sleeping.
I'm a poet and teacher of poetry. I was raised outside of Boston, went to school on a farm in Vermont, studied poetry in Iowa City, spent a week at a bookstore in Paris and a year in Jerusalem, would die to spend the last years of my life in Cinque Terre, and currently live in New Haven, Connecticut.
