The apartment is within walking distance of two major subway lines (3 mins to the 1 or C trains), a short ride to Midtown and all the tourist attractions (about 20 mins to Times Square / 42nd St). It is also conveniently located 2 stops from City College and 4 from Columbia University. Connections with La Guardia, JFK, or Newark Liberty airports are pretty straightforward.
The building is located in Washington Heights in Manhattan, close to the border with Harlem. The neighborhood is very safe and authentic, with a balanced mix of different ethnicities, although you will need to travel downtown for restaurants or entertainment. Be aware that this is a fifth floor walk-up (no elevator) which, at least, keeps everyone fit.
Once you book, you will receive detailed info on several ways to reach the apartment depending on where you are coming from.
In your room, you will find 2 twin beds with a foam or memory foam mattress fitted with 500 thread count Egyptian cotton linens, three bright windows, a spacious closet, a desk with lamp, TV, DVD player, and a free subscription to streaming movies from Netflix.
I provide fresh towels and basic toiletries (soap, shampoo, shower gel, shave cream), hair dryer, and iron with board. There is no washer or dryer in the apartment, but laundromats are just around the corner. C-Town and Associated supermarkets are within a 3-4 min walk.
If you bring your own computer, there is also a super fast Time Warner Extreme internet connection throughout the apartment and a home office with wireless printer and scanner in the drawing room for your use.
The price listed varies depending on the time of the year and is for the room only, breakfast may be included for an additional fee.
As part of my support to the artistic community, I will consider a reduced price for professional or young underpaid performing artists on tour.

Confortable apartamento en Washington Heights! Steve es un gran anfitriòn. No tuvimos ningun tipo de problemas. Con el subway a 2 cuadras se accede en 25 min al downtown de Manhattan. Saludos Steve!!
Steve ist eine großartiger Gastgeber, stets daran interessiert einem den Besuch so angenehm wie möglich zu gestalten. Das Zimmer bietet genügend Platz, ist modern eingerichtet und ausgesprochen sauber. In Küche und Bad ist alles vorhanden was man für das tägliche Leben benötigt. Am ehesten läßt sich die Unterkunft mit einer Art WG vergleichen, es gibt nur wenige Regeln an die man sich halten sollte und man hat genügend Raum für Privatsphäre. Ich kann diese Unterkunft nur wärmstens empfehlen. Von mir gibts 5 Sterne!
Steve est un hôte très accueillant, l'appartement est conforme aux photos et situé proche de plusieurs station de métro reliant le sud de Manhattan. Il faudra compter 20 à 30 minutes pour rejoindre les principaux lieux (website hidden)ès bon rapport qualité/prix pour New York!
Nice place and very nice host. I stayed for about 10 days at Steve's apartament and I had a great time. The apartment is very clean, warm, confortable, well furnished and had everything I needed. Besides, is located in a nice spot in Upper Manhattan, which was in easy reach of all the places and tourist spots I wanted to visit. There is easy acces to subway. Steve is great guy and always was willing to help and gave me excellent advices about the city. I felt very confortable in her apartment. I totally recommend Steve's apartment.
I needed a place to stay very last minute when my move-in was delayed by a weekend.
Steve had a clean bed for me, clean facilities, and a pleasant demeanor. I will rent from him if I or visitors ever need a place to stay again.
El apartamento esta muy bien y también muy bien situado por que esta cerca de la línea 1. El anfitrión es muy majo y te ayuda con todo. Muy recomendable
Steve was a wonderful host! Prior to our arrival, he reached out us to coordinate our check in time, and assured us that we he would be awaiting for us. Once we made it to the apt., he was welcoming, friendly and hospitable. He offered us extra amenities. Our room was spacious and clean, as well as the rest of the apartment. I would highly recommend Steve to those seeking for a convenient place near the subway!
Very wonderful host. Friendly, outgoing and not whimsical. The apartment is clean, comfortable and quiet area to live.
My friend and I had a great vacation in NYC. Steve is a very nice person, approachable and gives you all the freedom in coming and going out of the house. Just like some other guests pointed out, at night its a bit noisy outside; I’m not a light sleeper, so I didn’t mind, and my friend used earplugs, so problem solved.
Steve’s place is confortable and the room is very spacious, its just like you see in the pictures. There are subways just 2 blocks away and its about 20-25 minutes to Times Square, which is great; the only negative point I could comment on is that since the neighborhood is located in Upper Manhattan and its not a touristic type of NY neighborhood, late at night its a little darker than what we hoped for, but we arrived safely every night to Steve’s place. (Thanks for receiving us, Steve!)
Regarding NYC-standards, the room offers quite a lot of space and light; the downtown districts can easily be reached by public transport systems and there are a lot of grocery shops around.
Steve was always friendly and helpful.
