Absolutely the true feel of NYC loft living close to all NYC has to offer.
Step out the building and you are "IN" the exciting hustle and bustle of UNION SQUARE PARK, where you can people watch all day long.
Better yet have a bite at Iconic NYC restaurants such as "Blue Water Grill", or the famous "Union Square Cafe' or better yet just chill at the "Coffee Shop".
Shop to you drop on the famous "Lady's Mile".
A few blocks South you are in the famous "Greenwich Village," A few blocks east you,re in the exclusive Gramercy area and lastly a few block south of that is the Edgy East Village.
Guests step into this semi-private floor (only one other apartment) This space is magnificent and spacious, with its open and airy feel and 13 foot high ceiling.
Two large bedrooms along with one of the renovated marble bathrooms are in north part of the loft, the main renovated marble bathroom with Living/Dining area take up most of the vast space, along with additional sleeping/sitting area for extra guests.
Also, the apartment is in the rear of the building so it is EXTREMELY quiet, no street noise.
Spacious dining area and modern open kitchen with breakfast bar and Stainless Steel appliances, can provide a quick early morning meal or handle a gourmet dinner party.
There are 2 full bathrooms with washer and dryer in the apartment!!
Feel like a big dinner or entertaining in a dramatic, wide open space? The main living/dining/kitchen area is approximately 1200sf on its own.

We greatly enjoyed our stay at the apartment. Billy was waiting for us when we arrived and efficiently explained everything we needed to know about the apartment and location.
The living space in the apartment is huge. We had more than enough space for ourselves and another couple. The furnishings are not elegant, but perfectly fine. The beds were comfortable and bathrooms clean. (Very important!) As we were out enjoying New York, we didn't use the, other than the wine glasses
Wow - we so enjoyed staying at this lovely apartment. It is in a great location with easy access to the subway (and bus services), the grocery store and Union Square farmers market. The apartment is so quiet and in such a central position. The apartment is very spacious with great ceiling height. The bedrooms are a good size and the beds very comfortable. The living area is huge and really comfortable for relaxing and unwinding after a big day or evening out. The hosts were very welcoming and unbelievably helpful. We had an immediate response any time we had a question. I couldn’t recommend the apartment or hosts more highly.
I worked with Wally and Billy and both were very responsive and helpful. The loft was as described, spacious and wonderful. The beds were comfortable with great quality linens and towels.
The location couldn't be better as it is literally across the street from Union Square park, the subway, and around the corner from Whole Foods, and great shopping.
I will definitely stay here again on my next trip to NYC.
Everything was perfect. The place is exactly as described and the area is awesome. Thank you guys.
Couldn't have had a better New York experience! Wally was a wonderful host and can't wait to come back and stay in his union square loft apartment. Everything was as expected; in fact the apartment is bigger than it appears in the photos. The space is huge and he location is incredible. Subway outside the front door, all the best NYC restaurants within walking distance. Highly recommended!!
We were in a girls trip to NYC. The loft was the best place we have ever stayed. Great location, too. Thank you Wally and Billy, you were terrific hosts!
Billy was a great host meeting us at the apartment. Great location next to Union Square and would consider it next trip to NYC.

Blessed with our little girl Samantha, we strive to be better people everyday with the little things in life. We used to run thru the nightclubs and live the crazy lifestyle...we couldn't live without late night movies, the latest bar/lounge/club, being in "THE IT" crowd, running off to Paris or a quick trip to Vegas at a moments notice for a few days!
Funny, but we now get up at dawn and love to go to the Zoo, reading, although presently its all about Dr. Seuss's "Hop on Pop", and walking thru the city and exploring all the different neighborhoods. We enjoy going to ethnic restaurants and exploring tastes while exposing our girl to all NYC has to offer.
As we are a mixed couple, living within this diverse city gives us a sense of home that we cherish. We are a small family with a HUGE extended family that live in the New York and Maryland area and work hard developing our relationships with our family.
When we travel we appreciate a host that welcomes us like family, but stays out of our business. Thats what you can expect from us. We want to be available to you if you need, but otherwise, enjoy your privacy and have fun. We believe that being a good person is crucial and that good things happen to good people. That is what we are....good people.
