The space

You'll have your own bedroom a share the kitchen, bathroom, living room with me, a busy freelance journalist. It's a second-floor space with exposed brick and hardwood floors in a prime Lower East Side location. You'll be just two blocks from the subway (F/M & J/Z), which makes it easy to get uptown and also to Brooklyn. All around are exciting restaurants, bars, and shopping. As an additional benefit, this is a straight shot on the J train from JFK airport.

The LES is known for nightlife, but this block doesn't have any bars on it. The area is a cute, village-like neighborhood during the day but becomes quite the festive hot spot on Friday and Saturday nights. Luckily, your room is in the back of the apartment, so there's no street noise.

The apartment has a fully equipped kitchen you're welcome to use, and a grocery store is across the street. Both beds are full size. Linens and towels are included.

The apartment is on the second floor, so carrying suitcases up is not bad at all. There are several places to do laundry or get laundry done within a few blocks.

Guest access

Back bedroom, which is the quiet one (great for sleeping!); fully equipped kitchen; bathroom; living room; wifi

Interaction with guests

I work at home during the day, but am generally out and about most evenings.

The neighborhood

The neighborhood is a nightlife hub on weekends, but during the week it has a relaxed village feel. There are lots of great restaurants if you love food!
Please check out my guide on here for restaurant, bar, and cafe recommendations--or feel free to ask!

Getting around

Two subway lines (the F/M and J/Z) heading uptown or to appealing parts of Brooklyn are just two blocks away. You can also walk across the Williamsburg Bridge when it's pleasant out (50 m from the apartment door)

House Rules
Check in time is 2PM - 11PM

Basic stuff that I'm sure everyone would do anyway! :) But here goes:

Please wash your own dishes and leave things tidy.

During cold weather, the heat for the whole building is automatic. Please don't touch the radiator settings--turning the heat off can break the radiator.

During the summer, please be considerate about turning off the A/C when you leave, to help keep electric bills reasonable.

Same with the space heater during winter--please turn it off when you're not home.

Thanks! :)

Jenny was the friendliest host ever! Her responses were very speedy, and she made key pick up very easy. The location was very accessible to the places I had to go to and the area was very safe. The room was very cozy and Jenny supplied me with everything I needed during my stay. Thank you again!

Jenny was super nice, and gave great recommendations for nice places and restaurants in the city. The apartment is really well located, and conveniently placed by a delicious pizzeria. You should go for it!

Jenny was a great host. We needed a room immediately due to a problem with our original booking, and Jenny accommodated us on the same day we contacted her. Within 3 hours, we were checked into her space. We were very pleased and grateful.

I'm a Portland, Oregon, native who's lived in the Bay Area, Austin, and have been in New York for five years. I'm pretty low-key, easygoing, fun. I'm also an NYC food and drink writer, so if you want to know where to eat/go out, I can help!
