About this listing
A sunny, beautiful room with exposed brick, and lots of plants. There are two huge walls of windows, and we are right in the middle of Alphabet city, which is a great, friendly neighborhood.
This apartment feels like it's out of a sitcom. Lots of exposed brick, classic tiny NYC kitchen, and a cosy, welcoming vibe.
All common areas are up for grabs - you are welcome to use the kitchen and shared spices, oils, and pans.
Interaction with guests
Elizabeth and Alexandra will be in the apartment and available via phone if anything comes up. We are happy to recommend restaurants, bars, gyms, activities if you are interested!
The neighborhood is full of great restaurants, bars, theaters, and community gardens. We love Tompkins Square Park and the amazing tea shop, Wabi Sabi, right across the street! Brindle Room is my favorite restaurant in the whole city.
We are a 15 min walk to the 6/N/R subway and a 7 min walk to the F, there are plenty of Citi Bikes nearby, buses a block away, and there's a large grocery store on the block. Laundry is downstairs, but outside the building.\
It's a small (but cute and clean!) East Village apartment. Please be respectful of the space by cleaning up after yourself in the common areas. Housemates work normal jobs so please be respectful of noise at night and bathroom use in the morning.
I am really into Mysore yoga, good coffee and reading great books (some current favorites include: Rebecca Solnit’s “Field Guide to Getting Lost,” William Faulkner’s “Absalom, Absalom!,” Willa Cather’s “My Antonia,” Ray Bradbury’s “The Martian Chronicles”. I can't wait to start "Crossing to Safety" by Stegner.
I am also a sucker for home cooked meals and farmers markets.
