The Space

Hello Travelers,

Thank you for visiting my listing!

I am offering a charming apartment in the middle of the East Village. This clean and comfortable space has its own private kitchen and bathroom. It is two flights up from street level with no elevator. You can check availability and pricing by entering your travel dates into this listing or by checking my calendar. You can also make your reservation instantly.

The flat is conveniently located on 6th Street between 1st and 2nd Avenue. It is only a 7 minute walk to the L, F, 6, N, and R trains. See below for distances to popular destinations.

The apartment consists of two rooms separated by a heavy curtain. One is a bedroom with a queen sized bed that sleeps two people comfortably. There is a twin sized futon in the main room that can sleep a third guest. The main room has the kitchen and living area as well as the bathtub and shower. Yes, that's right, the bathtub is in the same room. This seemingly unusual trait is actually common in the older buildings of the East Village and the Lower East Side. There is also a small toilet room adjacent to the living area.

The flat is equipped with everything you may need including fresh sheets and towels, toiletries, a French press, coffee and tea, cookware and flatware, iron, hair dryer, and even snacks and beer in the fridge!

There is a cafe located across the street, a grocery store and pharmacy within one block, and plenty of restaurants and bars along 1st and 2nd Ave.

The East Village is the cultural hub of New York City. It is home to countless restaurants, bars, music venues, small shops, theaters, cafes, and more. I am a native New Yorker and this is definitely my favorite neighborhood.

I wish you all safe travels and luck finding accommodations. Again, please reach out to me if you have any questions.

  • This apartment is exactly as it is listed: small, minimalist, quirky, old, a third-floor walk-up with dank, musty stairwells, and in short not a good match for high maintenance travelers. But it is also well situated in one of my favorite NYC neighborhoods, it's reasonably clean, and I never saw a bug in the apartment the whole time. It takes a little getting used to the shower in the middle of the apartment, the lone sink with no mirror above it, the tiny toilet room with a trick light, and all the other oddities of this apartment, but once you start to get the hang of it, it feels like, well, you just might make it in this big crazy city after all. And what more authentic New York experience could one hope to have?

  • My first time with air bnb. This was the perfect spot for my trip to new york. Close to food , and bars and most of the trains we needed. The apartment is fantastic for the money. Simple , clean and with a/c. There was even beer in the fridge. I would suggest this apartment for your visit to new york.

  • The place is extremely close to everything. The air conditioner worked great! He was kind enough to leave snacks and drinks! The place does have a bathtub in the middle of the living/dining room. The bathroom light does not work. Really charming New York residence though :)

  • Very good place. Not cheap, but you can not find cheap places in NY. The owner responed promptly to my messages. He had left things for breakfast in the refrigerator and beers. It was in a central neighborhod 10 min walking from metro station. Very close to places to eat or bars. It was quiet. For a sort period staying i heighly suggest it.

  • We needed a place to stay overnight during a 22 hour layover. This place was perfect for our needs. It is small, but the space is designed perfectly for the size. The neighborhood is also wonderful with great coffee and food nearby. My wife and I will definitely stay here again the next time we come to the city.

  • This apartment is in a great location, right between 1st and 2nd Avenues on the Lower East Side. It's pretty low-frill, but that's ok because you're in New York and don't need to be hanging out in an apartment.
    It's really an experience to stay here, because it's like a pre-renovation tenement, something that's disappearing from the rapidly gentrifying Lower East Side. It was, however, very clean.
    It's definitely at the top of my list for future visits to New York.

  • Really enjoyed the flat and of course the one and only East Village. The apartment was as advertised, comfortable, and convenient. Thanks Willson!

  • Overall, we had a nice stay in the East Village flat and a terrific visit in NYC. First impressions first, but, please, be sure to read the whole review. The building....a bit scary at first and makes you worry whether you have the proper address. The apartment is small. The apartment is clean. The bed and futon couch/bed are comfortable. The bathtub/shower is in the living space. And, to help manage your expectations realistically, i describe the apartment as a "grown up youth hostel" dwelling. The floor are crookety, the walls have layers and layers of paint, a tile or two are missing off the floor, the sink is tiny, the bathroom light fixture has personality, the bathtub is in the living room, and if i lived there i would be compelled to do some DIY renovations and rearrangements for more practical living. In other words the accommodations are indeed modest by middle-class standards. BUT....That said, i stress that the neighborhood is great! Location is close to N/R; 6 and F subway lines and several cross-town buses. The building is not ACTUALLY scary or loud, the neighbors are friendly. "Wilson" is responsive to email/text, the place is clean, the A/C works well, as do the other appliances, the internet is great, the stocked fridge is greatly appreciated, and most importantly the beds are clean and comfortable --which is key after long days in the city. For people under 40 this place is just fine. If you're over 40, like me, one gets a bit pickier, perhaps. And so in conclusion, the place has enough good things going for it that any shortcomings of the apartment can be overlooked and considered part of your NYC tenement-living adventure.

  • The flat was convenient to restaurants and NYU. Willson was responsive to texts and even offered to let us bring our service dog (which we opted not to do). Check in and check out was easy. Plenty of extra blankets and clean towels. Good Host.

    June 2014
  • Willson was quick to respond to the few questions I had while staying in his apartment. The apartment was clean, the fridge stocked, and check-in/check-out was a breeze.
