My home is in the heart of downtown, one block from Union Square (100 pt walk score!).
You're close to almost every subway line, restaurants, bars, entertainment & shops but have a beautiful, well-lit, fully air-conditioned oasis to retreat home to at the end of the day.
The street I live on is quiet with a few lovely cafes and the best grilled cheese sandwiches I've ever had and the apartment building is new w/ a private courtyard to enjoy a morning coffee or evening cocktail!
Please note that you cannot mention to any of my neighbors that you are an AirBnB guest. You must just say you are staying at a friend's place (mine) while you are in town!
My apartment is in a new elevator building in an amazing location in the city - walkability score of 100+. You'll have great subway access and the ability to walk to Nomad, Chelsea, the West Village, East Village, Greenwich Village, Flatiron & the LES all in less than 10 minutes.
It's sparklingly clean and well decorated with luxurious finishes (like Italian linens! top of the line toiletries!), great sun exposure (floor to ceiling windows!) comfortable, modern furniture and a great collection of contemporary art. Plus a private building courtyard with a fountain and seating.
Unlike many apartments in NYC - you'll have access to central A/C and a dishwasher! You will also have access to a fully stocked kitchen if you'd like to take a break from the amazing NYC restaurants.
I will leave toiletries, towels and ample closet space for you - everything to make your temporary home comfortable and luxurious!
You can access the entire apartment. A rolling rack with hangers is provided for your use!
Only two rules:
1) Do not tell anyone you are staying with AirBnB, if anyone asks, tell them you are staying at a friend's place (mine!)
2) This is my home, please treat it as you would your own.
