27 y.o., NYC resident. I work in, and love, films. Fun, outgoing, and tall enough to reach things on the very top shelf.

I stayed for 18 days in the apartment, which has the perfect location in Manhattan. You can reach all of Manhattan’s areas within few minutes (two different subway stations – serving the Blue and L line – are very close to the apartment). Barrington is a truly great host; he makes you feel very welcome in his home! The hospitality was way beyond expectation. I went out with Barrington several times and he would always introduce me to all his friends and show me the “real” NYC. I always had a very fun time and feel like I have stayed with a friend!! The apartment itself is very comfy and the guest room large and bright (natural light) and it emanates a very pleasant vibe. It was a truly amazing experience and therefore overall a clear 10 out of 10. I definitely plan to stay there again if I go back to NYC. Thanks again Barrington.
We stayed with Barrington for a little over 2 weeks and enjoyed every minute of it!!
The apartment is clean, comfortable, private and located perfectly. The room has super high ceilings and an awesome street view. A short walk to the subway and 1 stop later you are on 34th St, or 2 stops later in Times Sq.
The area itself is filled with cool restaraunts, bars and shops! A short walk to the Chelsea Markets, 14th St and the Meatpacking District.
Barrington's hospitality was unreal... From the guide books, travel essentials, clean comfortable linen and towels, tips on getting around, general chat and a drink at the local bar our first time in NYC was epic!
We HIGHLY recommend staying with Barrington and would do so ourselves again in a heart beat!
I was a little worried about staying with complete strangers while in NYC - and this was the first time I'd ever tried AirBnB. I can honestly say that within 5 mins of meeting Barrington, my fears disappeared. Barrington is down-to-earth, approachable, friendly, and a very interesting guy! The apartment is super-clean and I was made to feel welcome and given free reign to hang out in the living room & watch DVDs if I wanted. The bedroom is just perfect - cozy blankets & lots of clean fresh pillows, high ceilings, cool pictures & decor, and a place to hang your clothes if you want. Lots of lovely soft towels & even travel-size toiletries (which I totally wasn't expecting!) Best of all, the location is brilliant. It's in a great neighborhood- very central and if feels safe and vibrant. For anyone thinking about choosing this apartment, I strongly recommend it. You are given your own space and freedom to use the place respectfully, and your host, Barrington is very sweet. Thank you for a great stay in NYC! :)
It really is a spacious room and wonderfully bright! The apartment was great, so were Barrington and his roommate. I felt at home and it's a great neighborhood too: really central and close to all the best perks of the city. Though the street itself is nice and quiet.
AMAZING!!!! Barrington is a great host! His flat is perfecftly located! Near good restaurants and bars! He would recommend you great places! His apartment is cozy, nice and super clean!!!!
Barringhton is a great host very discreet.
I enjoyed staying at home, despite the hurricane Sandy has taken electricity for 4 days.
The room is really spacious and bed is comfortable.
Barrington is a wonderful host and a pleasure to hang out and chat with passing by.
The space is lovely. The room is big and clean and airy. The bed is wickedly comfortable and there's plenty of space to hang up your clothes.
The location is convenient and it's also a nice tree lined street which is a pleasure to come home to.
The room and the apartment are very clean and well furnished. Barry is very discreet.
Barry has provided us a New-York guide.
There are restaurants, shops and metro nearby.
A place to recommend.
As it was my first visit to NY, I was not sure my arrival time, however, our kind host Barry was waiting when we arrived and very helpful to answer all questions, with the maps were prepared in the next morning, our visit in the City was much easier. The apartment was clean but the both room and toilet were small and the sanitary ware was rather obsolete, I suppose it is NY, the location is quite convenient to most of the hot spots and comfortable for short stay.
Barrington was the perfect guest as were his friends I would have no hesitation in recommending him!
Barrington was an excellent guest, absolutely no issues and very easy to communicate with... welcome back any time!
Barrington is everything you would want in an airbnb guest. He is respectful, considerate, clean, super sweet and extremely talented. I would have Barrington stay with us anytime.
Barrington maintains an exceptionally clean apartment and is respectful of privacy, but is also a very social person and is extremely fun to be around. Very trustworthy, and I have no problem saying he would make an excellent host or guest.
I lived with Barry from (phone number hidden) and I can say that he is, without a doubt, one of the greatest guys I know. He is respectful, honest, kind and funny. And it's true, he can reach things on the very top shelf.
In sum: you can't go wrong with him or this apartment.
Barry is a giant sweetheart with a dry sense of humor. He has a great apartment around the corner from me in our killer Chelsea location. I may see if I can stay there if I need a day or two when I rent out my place. 5 thumbs up.
