Private small second-floor studio apartment with a full size bed. Perfect for 1 person, can fit max 2 humans. Superb location near 24/7 bus to Manhattan. Kitchen, bathroom, reliable air conditioner in summer and heat in winter. Second floor, so only 10 steps to get to apartment! Quiet & friendly 'hood, easy to walk. A visitor permit for street parking required, 48 hour notice needed to arrange. Get to Time Square in 10 min by 24/7 bus. Old building, so don't expect the Ritz!
Small studio apartment for maximum two guests sharing one bed. There is no option for more than 2 guests. The studio is in a small building above a laundromat, and the common entrance is a bit ratty looking. We sweep and wash the hallway every week but it's still old!
Access to entire apartment, not shared with anyone.
We can make arrangements for luggage storage before or after check-in/check-out.
Interaction with guests
I live off site but I'm not too far away, and I'm always available to help.
We have a comprehensive house manual in the apartment so you'll have all of the info that you need.
Other things to note
1) Set of keys that for your stay
2) It's a quiet family neighborhood where tons of people are walking around at night, in the morning, all day. We don't have street people or panhandlers, but we do have lots of young families with strollers and puppies. The streets are well lit and I regularly walk home through the neighborhood even late at night.
3) Best way to get into the city is to follow the detailed info that is in the house manual, but just as an overview, the jitney buses go every 5 minutes (no joke) all day and all night, 24/7, 365 days a year. It's $3 a trip cash, no tickets.
4) We can lend you a visitor parking permit which is required for street parking, but we don't have any reserved parking. We need advance notice to arrange the visitor permit.
