The Space

Hey Travelers,

This very cozy room has been lived in by many tourists and backpackers, all of which have enjoyed their stay with us! Your space is easily sectioned off by the curtains pictured, and our bedrooms are down the hall.

It is furnished with a full size bed, cable tv, and a storage cabinet. There is also a huge closet in our hallway that is completely available for use. Our apartment is extremely clean. We live 2 blocks away from the 6 train, and we are surrounded by buses which take you uptown, downtown, and crosstown. It takes about 20 minutes to reach Midtown by train.

The apartment is on the third floor of a townhouse, and we are surrounded by a variety of food and shopping choices. There is also a wonderful park with a racetrack and outdoor pool (in the summertime) just 2 blocks away. We are both females in our twenties, we are clean and get along very well with others. We will try make your stay as memorable and as enjoyable as possible! We've had great experiences with those who have happily shared our space.

  • I stayed at their space for two weeks and had a good time. The space was very small but cozy and comfortable. Thank you very much. I enjoyed my first experience of airbnb very much.

    There are many supermarkets, shops and restaurants nearby. Also it is near the subway and the line was very convenient. The bus stops were near, too.

  • Liz and Andrea are SO friendly and have shown me a great sense of hospitality. They also gave me tips about where to go and best ways to get to destinations. This place is really clean and is easily accessible through the (six) subway line.
    I had my stay with airbnb three times in three different cities and I can confirm that this is the best experience I ever had!

    Ps. I was visiting NY for the NYC half marathon

  • When the hustle and bustle of NYC can get a little overwhelming, the hospitality of Liz and Andrea is sure to make you feel right at home in this comfortable abode. As a student, the size of this place was just what I needed. Liz and Andrea were great in giving suggestions on where to go, and were extremely accommodating! Had a great stay, thank you very much!

    And I am so happy I did , not only the appartment was cozy , comfy and clean
    But also I get to know Liz and Andrea
    I really enjoyed staying with them , chatting with them and seeing them every now and then
    Not to forget mentioning meeting Andreas great mother , her bf , her sister and Liz's sister which all together contributed in making my experience 5 stars experience

    Am sure you read the other reviews so no need to repeat the words
    But what I should say is if you want a safe comfortable place to stay in with amazing New yorkers , u shouldnt even hesitate of choosing this appartment

    Thanks Liz and Andrea

  • I would start with the world AMAZING HOSTS!!!
    Liz and Andrea really are two lovely people.
    They helped me out cause my luggage was delayded and i didn't have any dress with me apart from the one i wore.
    They made me feel home straight away, got me a pigiamas, towel and reassured me by telling me "everything is gonna be ok".
    It actually went more than ok cause i happened to have such a warm and human connection with them, i felt i shared soo much emotionally.
    I was even invited to a great thanksgiving party by Andrea who made me feel like having the most amazing New York Christmas experience ever imagined. Thanks to Andrea, Mike and Mike's brother and sister in law and their lovely neighbor too who joined us for the evening.
    I felt like i had been living with Liz and Andrea for such a long time.
    Their home was mine as well and i did not feel any pressure whatsoever.
    I loved sharing my impression about the city, what i visited, what i liked most. Liz and Andrea were very curious about it, and i found it so nice of them.
    Their house is lovely and cosy, very close to the 6 line which gets you easily to the city centre. I felt safe taking the train home even late at night, i just advice to take precautions and being sensible like you would be in any big city. I loved Harlem, it's different from the business and magnificent part of New York which is in the centre, it's somehow a part of the city where i really felt like being home most, so vital as well.
    I had a great time one late afternoon going to the market with Liz, i enjoyed doing what a New Yorker would do on a everyday basis. But what i happened by chance to understand from that simple time spent together is how a great woman Liz is, i really connected deeply with her. So i did with Andrea one evening when i got home and we talked so much about ourselves, our lives.
    So again i do really advice choosing those two young funny happy ladies as hosts, who will spice up your New York experience for sure.
    I travelled on my own but i felt always in good company...

    Thanks again to Liz, Andrea and Mike...
    I'm gonna miss you guys...

  • Having had very limited time to plan for my trip to new york, I came across Liz and Andrea's listing at the last minute, the location seemed close to where I wanted to be, and the reviews were excellent.

    I'm so happy I came across their listing!

    Be prepared to meet two amazing young women, and Mike (Andrea's boyfriend). They will go out of their way to make you feel at home, although the area is a section of the living room, and as many other travelers mentioned, you get the feeling that the entire area is there for you, I slept like a baby every day after too much walking in the city, the girls gave directions and tips on where to go and what to eat (such as dough loco, thanks again Andrea!), in addition to where to shop, what to see, and what to avoid.

    The area is safe, off course you have to careful as in every other area, but I came home late several nights, I left to the airport at 3 a.m. without any issues, the metro is very near and it gets you everywhere.

    There is a fantastic supermarket just two streets to the back where you can find everything you need, at affordable prices. And a very nice bakery next to it were you can have a quick breakfast to energize and kick start your day. Oh and the entrance to central park where the lake is located is also very near, make sure to check it out, AMAZING!

    I loved New York, I would definitely go back again, Liz and Andrea are amazing hosts, believe every positive review you see here, you'll be lucky to stay at their place, I have friends in New York now :).

  • La estadía con Liz y Andrea fue fantástica. Las chicas son muy amables y han estado dispuestas a todas las consultas y situaciones en mi estadía. El departamento es hermoso y el barrio es un lugar muy bueno desde donde acceder a cualquier lugar de NY. Recomiendo a todos hablar con las chicas para poder quedarse en su departamento en su estadía en la magnífica NY!!

  • I stayed at Liz and Andrea's apartment for 14 nights and had a great time. Just as the title suggests, it really is a cosy and comfortable space. And even though it's basically part of the livingroom, it feels like your own room and they are both very respectful about your privacy. The apartment is homey and it's nice to get back there after a long day of sightseeing the city. Both girls are really kind and great hosts and will help you with anything if you need something. Andrea even got me into the Guggenheim Museum for free! Location is great too, less than a ten minute walk from Central Park and lots of stores just around the corner, including a great bakery. I would definitely recommend to stay at this apartment if you are visiting New York and want to stay in a lovely place.
