If it's an authentic New York experience you're looking for, you've found it. Located in the heart of the East Village of Manhattan, this one bedroom apartment is as cool as the city and as cozy as the country. Perfect for couples or singles. Not suitable for families. East & west facing windows wash the flat in lots of morning and afternoon light, flat screen tv (for watching DVD's only) internet, queen size tempurpedic bed (with memory foam mattress!), laundry/dry cleaners on ground floor, kitchen, full bath.
I collect early American antiques which impart a country charm to this small yet beautiful city apartment.
10-15 minute walk to the F train; 15-20 minutes to N/R & 6 lines. Beautiful historic Tompkins Square Park is just blocks away and anchors the colorful diversity of the neighborhood. The East Village abounds with a bar and cafe culture unmatched in other parts of Manhattan. If you were to throw a stone from my roof the arch of it's trajectory would pass no less than several upscale restaurants and downscale dive bars. The only neighborhood in New York!
Everything you will need is provided. Towels, linens, toiletries, umbrellas if it rains, movies, books (but why read when there's so much to do?) etc. All you have to do is show up.
Apartment is on the 5th floor of an old tenement building. No elevator. The stairs are no joke. If you bring lots of luggage you're in for a challenge. You wanted an authentic New York experience right? You'll have the best legs south of 14th St. when you leave!
The building is heated in winter by steam heat. The pipes can rattle when hot water is flowing thru them. Common in Lower East Side tenements.
Weekends can be noisy. That's what happens when you're surrounded by amazing bars and fantastic restaurants.
