Located on the historic corner of Christopher and Gay, my apartment is in a 1910 historically significant classic Federal Style small house. The building has retained many of it's significant architectural features.

The space

Location! Location! Location! Sunny, bright, clean 1 bedroom apartment in Manhattan's historic Greenwich Village available for nightly rentals. Apartment is on the corner of historic Christopher and Gay Street and is one block from the famous Stonewall Bar.

The apartment gets great light, has original wood floors and a large working fireplace. All the furniture is classic, original, and modern (no knock offs). The bedroom is snug requiring you to enter the full size bed from it's foot. The apartment is on the second floor facing the street providing not just a front row seat to Village charm but also a certain amount of street noise.

Things you can count on:
High speed wireless internet connection. Clean towels and sheets. A newly renovated kitchen with a two burner stovetop, microwave and a cool Kohler faucet. There is no oven but I have a coffee press. Just in case there is an iron if you need a freshly pressed shirt.

House Rules:
No smoking, no pets, no parties. Apartment is perfect for a couple but can cozily accommodate up to 4 people -- 2 in the bedroom and 2 in the living room sharing the king size Aero bed.

Apartment is within walking distance of Soho, The Meatpacking District, East Village, Nolita, Chelsea, Union Square. The subway, in all directions, is within walking distance from the apartment. The subway lines you have access to within a block of the apartment are A-C-E-D-B-F-2-1-3-V. These feed into all other subway line.

What else can I say -- My apartment will not disappoint those looking for a hip, convenient apartment in a fantastic location. Don't believe me -- READ MY REVIEWS.

Guest access

My guests have access to anything in my apartment. I provide free Wi-Fi and a computer you can use to look up information or listen to music.

Interaction with guests

I am very responsive. I monitor trip arrivals and like to meet guests in person when they arrive. That way I can show them around and answer any questions. Then I am available by phone. I also provide a secondary person they can contact if for any reason I'm not available.

Other things to note

Greenwich Village has developed as a home for a significant number of off-Broadway theater companies and lots of music venues.

You'll find hundreds of restaurants and sidewalk cafés of virtually every culture. All-American, Mexican, Indian, Italian, Polish, Pakistani, Spanish, Chinese, Thai, Vietnamese...the list goes on... At many spots you'll find affordable eats with the chance to enjoy your meal on the sidewalk. There are also some well-known upscale restaurants in the neighborhood.

Brian was very on top of communication well in advance of my trip. He was incredibly helpful. I was delighted to find he let me drop my bag on the way into the city so that I could make a 2pm matinee. The location could not have been better, just far enough out of the madness of time square to feel like home and yet still connected very simply by way of the subway. The area is full of quaint restaurants and bars, many of which are historical. Originally when I booked, I was needing two beds, but my traveling companion had to cancel. When I asked Brian about the second bed he reminded me that the listing does point out the second bed is a blow up mattress that could have been easily provided, but in this case was not needed. I plan to rebook this location on future trips. Thanks Brian, it was great meeting you.

Apt is in a really great location with the beautiful West Village at your door step and all that the East Village has to offer close by. It's also an easy walk from midtown straight down 7th Ave. Brian was very easy and efficient to communicate with, friendly and accomodating.

Had a good stay at Brian's Air-pad. I picked it as I often commute to work in the neighborhood, but for the visitors: you've got a pretty great location here. If you are a location-oriented urban traveler, it's prime. You're a few steps from several key subways and the neighborhood itself has everything. Secure access to the building and apartment, easy walk-up, lots of light, good, hot shower, *very* comfortable bed. Solid Internet and late-model bedroom smart-TV. Zero tenant noise and perfectly acceptable and normal NYC street sounds. The photos are accurate to get the visual. Host Brian communicated well and made everything simple from check-in to check-out. Would definitely stay again.

This room was the perfect little weekend getaway for me and my girlfriend. Came to the city to see a few shows and do cute couple things. We were within walking distance of coffee, diners, and a hella great brunch place, and we had a great view of the street to people watch from the second floor. It's not particularly spacious, though you can see that from the pictures (and about as big as you'd expect for an old village apartment)- but it was totally cozy for us! Also, the pictures look to be totally accurate, if that's helpful. I love the art and decor of the place. Nice bed, good shower, plenty of towels! Brian is great- he was totally accommodating of our need to drop our stuff off early, met us there and gave us a tour and advice about where the best eats and such were in the area! Total sweetheart. TLDR: hip, friendly, perfect spot for a couple looking to escape to the city. 10 out of 10, would recommend.

Everything that we wished for was very accessible. Walking distance to transport, food, shops and the authtentic Village atmosphere at our fingertips. Joe's Coffee around the corner - best coffee we could get - as good as home (Melbourne). Many of NYC attractions are within walking distance, or a short subway ride. We weren't used to the street noise initially, but adapted to it.

I am a Graphic Designer focused on new business pitches. At least that's what I do for a living for about 50 hours out of any week.

What defines me as an Airbnb host is that I am honest, available, and care that my guests leave feeling good about their decision.
