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.

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.
Greenwich Village (also referred to as the West Village) is a favorite place to get lost on a Saturday afternoon. Escaping from the formal grid structure that dominates north of 14th Street, wandering the streets of Greenwich Village makes one feel as though they've escaped from New York City into some small European city. Many streets are lined with shops, and while the Gap and Virgin Records can still be found, there are many independently owned stores and restaurants to discover. When you've had enough of Manhattan's tall buildings and bustling crowds, Greenwich Village offers a great respite with its calmer, more manageable feel, and the area's shorter buildings allow more sunshine to reach the streets. There are many secret courtyards and small gardens nestled between townhouses on the neighborhood's residential blocks.
Greenwich Village is served by many subway lines:
The 1, 2, and 3 lines run under 7th Avenue, with the 1 stopping at Christopher St station (next to the picturesque Sheridan Sq).
The A, B, C, D, E, F, and M lines stop in the middle of the Village at the W 4th St station (at the intersection of W 4th St and 6th Ave)
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.
