Private room for rent for the month of March in a beautiful, well appointed, 2 family house on hidden block in Long Island City, NY. House was built in the 1880's and still retains its historical character. 4 Subways (E, M, 7, G) right across the street, 1 stop out of Manhattan. Neighborhood has GREAT restaurants, and is quiet and neighborhood-like while still retaining it's NYC industrial roots. This location is absolutely perfect for someone who needs/wants to get out in and out of the city very quickly. The room itself is very large and is attached to a bathroom which is shared by another roommate. My artisan leather studio is also in the room, but I will pack up most of the studio which will leave you a nice big work table to sit at and do art or just drink your morning coffee and check emails. The other roommates work quite a bit and so you would have the place to yourself alot. I work from home so I have gone out of my way to make it my sanctuary. It is beautiful, and it is important that the person that stay here for the month respect our objects and love them as though they are their own. The objects in my room have been gathered over a lifetime of travel and are special and hold special meaning and power. More details: the apt is spacious!: 2 floors, 2 HUGE bathrooms, tons of light, tons of happy plants, skylights, unique architectural details, Queen sized bed in bedroom, laundromat 1 block away. PLEASE NOTE: we do not have TV/Cable. We are a Netflix/Hulu/DVD type of house.
This is quiet peaceful house. We do not have parties, and we do not have guests over too often. For all three of us, this is our sanctuary- all of our socializing is done outside the apartment. We would prefer people who keep to themselves mostly and who are extremely respectful and sensitive to the other housemates.
Industry City is somewhere everyone should stay before it changes. Jennifer's house was amazing, it was spacious, clean and close to the rail services. Unfortunately I wasn't able to spend much time with Jen as she had to depart due to a family bereavement. She was kind enough to allow me to stay even through her world had been turned upside down. I'd recommend a visit with Jen, enjoy the local streets and cafes.
Jen is what you expect a cool New Yorker to be like. She is also an excellent host and her flat is fantastically located, clean and atmospheric, just like the photos show it. I felt at home at all times and would definitely stay again there.
