I'm born out west (Oregon) but raised in the NY metro area. Living in the city for 10+ years now. I spend a lot of my time in NY working, but enjoy my nights and weekends eating and drinking my way through Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens.
Every Superhost has their own style, but they've all reached key hospitality goals.

Russell's place was the perfect spot for a quick weekend in NYC with a friend. The apartment is in a great location with lost of bars, restaurants, and things to do well within walking distance (thanks to Russell for all the tips).
The apartment itself was great: cozy, well put together, and 2 beds meant no awkward spooning.
Russell was an amazing host; adjusting his schedule so that we could pick up the keys a day before our actual reservation. He made us feel very at home, communicated well throughout the planning and booking process, and offered total peace of mind.
Recommended for sure.
Russell was so helpful and accommodating from when we booked until the day we left. His charming flat was perfect for two, warm and cosy and in the perfect location to get to all of New Yorks landmarks. We could not have asked for a better host, flat or location for our trip to New York. I would highly recommend.
Russel is really nice and understanding about the schedule. the flat is even better than on the pictures. I recommend it!!
My two friends and I recently stayed at Russell's place (phone number hidden)) for our first time in New York and our first time using airbnb. Russell made our experience wonderful, he was an amazing host; great communication from beginning to end, he gave us tips on where to go eat, texted us to make sure we were doing ok, and very fast response to emails or text. The place was just as described, clean, comfy and the location was great there was many taxis, great places to eat, bars, and walking distance to public transportation. Russell made us feel at home, we will definitely be going back and most definitely recommend this place to other. Thanks for everything Russell:)
I went to NYC with two girlfriends over the thanksgiving weekend, and we could not be happier with our accommodation. Russell's place was very clean, and we didn't miss anything throughout our stay there. There's a TV with nice speakers, so you won't be bored while waiting for your turn to shower. Russell was a great host; easy to get hold of, and very helpful when greeting us, giving great tips on where to eat and what to do around the area. The place itself is in the perfect location, with great restaurants and bars only steps away. There are bus/subway stops nearby, and plenty of taxis on the surrounding streets, so getting around is as easy as it gets. The studio really felt like home, and made this our best trip to the city yet. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a good, relaxing time in the city!
Russell was an absolutely wonderful host. He was extremely responsive, helpful, and communicative from the minute the trip was booked to the end. He was always available if we had any questions and we felt so welcomed in his home.
As for the apartment itself, it was extremely clean and gave me and my friends exactly what we needed. The location was perfect and we were able to walk almost anywhere downtown manhattan. The subway was only a few blocks away too so everything was very convenient. It's close to some well known foodie spots and also close to St. Marks, a street with some yummy restaurant and bar locations!
All in all, great place and wonderful host! I'd definitely go back again if I ever make another trip to New York!
Russell's apartment was excellent during my colleague and I's 3-night stay in New York City. The apartment was exactly as described in the listing, very clean and extremely well appointed. This cozy east village apartment would be a great choice for a couple, solo traveler or small group.
The location of the apartment is right in the middle of the east village, one of the best neighborhoods in New York. Transportation is just a couple blocks away via the L train, and we never had trouble getting a cab on Avenue A just outside the front door. If you're looking for endless great bar and restaurant choices, the east village is the place to be. We simply walked around and stumbled in to several great places within blocks of the apartment.
Russell was also a great host. He was easy to contact leading up to our trip, and was very welcoming upon our arrival. I especially appreciated the welcome book he has in the apartment full of all the info you need about the place and the neighborhood.
Overall, I couldn't recommend this place more.
Russell was very friendly and helpful.
His place is in a great neighborhood, and brilliant for checking out New York.
We had an early morning flight and Russell was happy to meet us first thing in the morning to hand over the keys, and let us get a few hours sleep before checking out the city.
The apartment was very nice, and met the description provided.
Would definitely recommend this listing.
Good location, economical given the area.
Sin duda alguna el apartamento se ajustaba a la descripción, un apartamento muy limpio, bien ubicado y con todos los detalles que se ven en las fotografías. Incluso Russell nos dejo fruta y todas las facilidades incluyendo planos para que nuestra estancia fuese la mejor posible. Sin duda alguna repetiremos.
La experiencia en el apartamento de Russell fue excelente. Quedamos con él en una cafetería frente al apartamento, fue puntual y muy amable en todo momento. El piso se ajusta a las fotos y no sentimos como en casa. East village posiblemente el mejor barrio de New York una vez te sales del ajetreo de la gran manzana, repleto de bares y restaurante geniales y tranquilo.
We loved to host Russell. We had a fluent conversation before the arrival and he is very respectful of the house rules.
Very quite and social person at the same time, he is the perfect host!
The room was very cleaned and tidy as when he checked in.
I've been friends with Russ for several years. We started out as colleagues but quickly became friends. He's a great guy, keeps his apartment immaculately clean (so much so that I regularly ask him to clean my place, which he does not, unfortunately, oblige) and has great taste in all things domestic (so you'll be extremely comfortable in his well appointed apartment). If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to be in touch. Otherwise, go ahead and enjoy Russ's place.
Russell is an amazing host, and his place is incredibly comfortable and well kept. He's very responsible and I highly recommend staying at his apartment.
