Cozy room in East Village with AC

Apartment - Private room · E 2nd St, New York, NY 10009, United States

The Space

Rent my quiet back from the street room in the East Village. It's private and has everything you need, from wi fi to a tidy bathroom.! Its an extremely safe 24 hour neighborhood. There's lots of work by local artists in my kitchen, and a washer dryer you can use with the guidance of your hostess - it drains into the sink, nyc tenement style! Couples are ok, its just extra~! The bed is full size and has pillows galore, and the linens are fresh. It's a third floor walk up, in a well maintained prewar building, My block has a couple of nice restaurants, Supper and Il Bogato, and my favorite pizza is Rizzo's, a block and a half away on Clinton Street. Its close to a lot of pubs and shops but my particular street isn't noisy or crowded - things go block by block here in manhattan. I've had good experiences with all my guests so far - we've both been lucky!

The Neighborhood

People are easy going here, they're not in such an incredible hurry, and I love to go to Tompkins Park, on 7th Street, and people watch in the central area. It's diverse, relaxed, and still quirky - the East Village and the Lower East Side are the best neighborhoods in NYC!

Getting around

It's two blocks from the 2nd Avenue Stop on the F Train (Orange line_, a few blocks from the 6 (Green) line, Bleecker or Astor Place, and I'm fond of the 14A and 15 Limited, buses are one of the best ways to look around our city streets, especially China Town.

Other Things to Note

The apartment is in a 100 year old tenement building, and it slopes a bit - that's characteristic of the old East Village, as we're close to sea level and in fact as you get down towards Avenue D and C, you're on former swamp land!

  • This is the perfect place to stay in New York, in Alphabet City in Lower Manhattan. Jen was the perfect hostess, & made sure I was comfortable & had everything I needed. She gave me lots of information about he the locality. Could not have wished for a better stay.

  • I stayed 6 nights with Jennifer in December and had a great experience. Her apartment is centrally located in the lower east side, with close access to the Subway and walking distance to bars and restaurants. Jennifer was very accommodating and had interesting knowledge about the neighborhood. It was nice to have a laundry/dryer in the apartment. Thanks!

  • Jennifer is very warm and welcoming. The room is comfortable and very quiet. The neighborhood is wonderful. The last really bohemian area in Manhattan. Chock full of bars, restaurants, shops, etc. A short walk to the train, the Lower East Side, Chinatown.

    If you like Vietnamese food, be sure to try the V'nam Cafe for pho and banh mi.

  • It's a really nice quiet room on a great block with lots of bars and stores nearby. The kitchen's a bit messy but the bathroom and bedroom is perfect. Jennifer and her friend are both great people, we really enjoyed our stay.

  • Jennifer was a friendly and nice host. She helped me with every question and struck up very intereeting (email hidden)e even let me use her computer. The room is cozy and bothroom clean and accessible. Kitchen is a little cluttered and I took a fall going onto the bedroom(Probably my fault) as there was a step down which I am not used (website hidden) is a 3 flight walkout so that can e tough with a lot of bags-but it wa fne for me. Neighborhood is great with neat rstaruants and good bagel place.Nearby subway/Jennife is really ncei and interesting ane I would stay there again.

  • Approved quickly and super friendly, this place did me well for a quick one-night stop over in NYC. Cosy apartment, good sized room with all the amenities (big tv, wifi, etc) and a perfect location for some really great bars and restaurants. I can recommend Alder, on 2nd and 10th. About a 10 min walk away.

About
I'm a New York based writer and singer who does a lot of spoken word gigs, and often visits San Francisco. I have 4 pop type books published, I hang out at Double Down, Eastern Bloc, and many other spots in the East Village. My friend Leslie will be your host if I'm in California - she's a painter and really knows the area. We're pretty laid back!
