The Space

A Shared ONE-BEDROOM apartment is available for a guest or tourist who would like a fully furnished apartment while you are visiting Manhattan! Please check the actual price on my calendar and the season. A security deposit on all reservations is required equal to $90.00.

Located on East 61st street it is near several subway lines. N/R/W; 4/5/6; and the F line is on 63rd and Lexington. Apartment is near the Queensboro Bridge and a couple of blocks from the East River which has a great walking promenade. The Sky Tram is also at the corner if you want to check out Rooselvelt Island!! A market is just around the block (Food Emporium Bridge Market) with excellent laundry and dry cleaning(EFI Cleaners) 1/2 block away. Another unique thing about the location is it is also near the city's antique boutiques and upscale interior design firms. Bloomingdales is just 2 blocks for other excellent shopping on the east side of Manhattan!!!The apartment It is on the ground floor so extremely easy acess into and out of a quiet building.

In addition, Central Park is 4.5 blocks away if you want to take a walk or run in the heart of the city a little farther north is Museum Mile which includes the MET, Guggenheim, Whitney and others. If you are athletic then you may step into the gym 2 doors down from the apartment (Sportsclub LA East). The gym is appoximately 8 floors including rock-climbing, basketball courts, squash, exercise floors, spinning, boxing and saunas/swimming pool. If you are interested please inquire with me so I can refer you to the gym to sign you up for a limited membership. Also, I can arrange for a weekly maid service if you are interested, please let me know. The service would be separate from the cost already advertised here. I just want to let you know what is available to you and to make you as comfortable as possible.

This apartment is for tourists and for short term stays and/or if you are in transition. Ideally stays of 1-2 weeks or shorter can be arranged and encouraged. No smokers allowed. Only one (1) person maximum stay is allowed. THIS IS A SHARED APARTMENT. YOU WILL BE ABLE TO USE A FUTON IN THE MAIN LIVING SPACE (Please see the picture). Small kitchen and dining banquette along with a small desk for any office work you may need to complete while on your holiday. A small continental breakfast would be included in the price.

The bedroom is extremely quiet and private in the back of the apartment for a good night's sleep and away from the street. Again, NO PETS OR SMOKING allowed. This is a great neighborhood and is easily accessible to midtown, Upper East Side and anywhere else in the city you may want to traverse! Very convenient to LGA by bus or subway and JFK is accessible via the subway.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Gene was an excellent host. His apartment is extremely clean, and the bathroom, living, and kitchen areas are well-maintained. I slept on the the futon in the living room, which is quite comfortable, and Gene has plenty of sheets, pillows, and blankets to use depending on what you want. Gene himself was also quite nice during my stay, and was always courteous and respectful. In terms of location, the apartment is only a four or five minute walk from the 59th st. subway station.

  • Gene has a nice quaint place which is convenient to commute to. He had everything prepared and even though he was out of town for 2 days he still checked back with me constantly making sure I had everything I needed. All in all it was a wonderful stay and I would definitely go back! :)

  • Stay in NY was great as usual, but this time I lived as a new yorker thanks to Gene and is nice apartment! Very well located, I went running several times in the near Central Park, very well served, food malls, subway, starbucks just around! The apartment is little but well furnished and clean. Gene was so helpful and kind to me, since the first moment I felt at home! We have spent 10 days in the same place and was absolutely great for everything. Thank you Gene!
