My warm room has a brand new queen bed that fits up to two. A 3 minute walk to the metro and full access to Manhattan/Brooklyn/ Queens. Explore Columbia University nearby. Times Square is only 20 minutes away + Hudson river views. Safe. Private.

The space

Are you looking for a great space in NYC? Enjoy mine either while I'm away or if i'm in town, a fun person to chat with.

A Bonus: i'm integrated into the underground nightlife in NYC. If you're looking for some amazing events let me know.

Inquire. I respond and book quickly. Take this space before someone else does!

My room is huge. Feel at home where space is rare and expensive. This room has a full bed and enough open space to have a small dance party.

Would you like to bike through Central Park or along the beautiful Hudson River which is only a 5 minute bike ride from my place.

My apartment is just a few yards from the Hudson River Greenway. A beautiful view of the river. The 1 train is 3 blocks away and that will get you anywhere you need to go in NYC. My building and apartment are both safe and clean.

Guest access

You have access to the entire apartment, bathroom living room, kitchen, and bathroom except for my two flatmate's rooms.

Interaction with guests

I won't be home most of the time, but my (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) are friendly people. One is a grad student in psychology. Another is getting his Ph.D is music. You are going to have the opportunity to be quite private as you visit NYC.

Michael's room in Harlem is a great find. The bedroom is huge and you have access to the whole apartment including fully equipped kitchen (for those of you who do not want to eat out all the time). The building is very safe and it's only round the corner from subway. Plenty of options to eat locally, go for a run or a walk in the park or if you want to head to town, the train will take you 20mins or so to reach Midtown. I only met Michael briefly but he made sure I knew my way around the apartment before he went away for the weekend. I would recommend this place to anyone visiting NYC.

We spent two nights at the apartment. Michael was away whilst we were there but answered our questions in advance and had arranged for his friend to look after us whilst in New York. He also left us two towels. The flat was well located, not far from the subway station. Whilst the apartment was a good size, Michael's things were left in his bedroom, meaning that we felt like we were staying in another person's space. Also, the bathroom was dirty and had not been cleaned for a while. One further problem was that Michael hadn't told us the lock on his door meant that the door could be locked from the inside. As a result, we had to call Michael's friend who came to take off the lock and let us into the room. Probably an OK appartment for a few days in New York.

Michael's room is in a convenient location near the subway stop on 137th, it was clean and tidy. His room is also the closest to the shower and kitchen which was very convenient at night. He's a good guy and the location is very chill. Definitely great for a night stay visiting the city!

Michael's place was comfortable and just what I needed for an overnight stay! Not too far out of the way from midtown and easy to get to from the subway. Thank you for hosting me!

Response from Michael:
Indeed, It is unfortunate I had a guest this weekend. I just moved rooms and it was not an appropriate time to host. I will host again in July when things look bright and shiny. The room is in the process of being repainted and personalized.

I am a grad student studying clinical social work at Columbia. I am an active person. I bike, latin dance, play basketball and travel as much as possible.

My motto is be flexible most of the time, but firm when necessary. Walk the balance between freedom and limitations. But most of all dance your ass off when you can. You will never regret it.
