I have a comfortable futon available in my spacious and quiet 1BR apartment.
My apartment is only a 20 min walk from Central Park. There are tons of bars and restaurants around the area and easy access to the rest of Manhattan! Ladies only please!

The space

I have a very spacious living room -- you will definitely not feel cramped! The apartment is very quiet and there is virtually no traffic noise. The building also has a 24hr doorman.

Guest access

You will have access to the bathroom and fully equipped kitchen. There is (paid) laundry in the building as well. There is an extra closet and a few clothes hangers will also be provided for your use. Wifi is also included. Although you will be in the living room, there is a screen you can use for privacy. Additionally I have an extra air mattress for your use.

Interaction with guests

I am a recent college graduate living and working in the city. I live in the apartment but I work from about 10am - 7pm M-F so I will usually be out of the apartment by 9.30 on weekdays. I am happy to give you directions and suggestions on where to go and take you around on weekends, if you would like. Otherwise I will likely be out of the apartment for most of the weekend.

Other things to note

I am willing to host up to three guests (if two are willing to share the futon and the third person will sleep on an air mattress) for an extra $20/night per extra guest. Additionally, since I do live in this apartment, I am going to try to limit the number of times I host to one or two per month, depending on the length of each stay, so please let me know as early as possible!

Staying with Lorna was a pleasure-she and her friend made me feel very welcome from the start. A very nice letter with information regarding transport, the local area etc was left on my arrival, my bed was made and clean towels were provided. I got on very well with Lorna and her friend and would highly recommend staying here to anyone looking for something on the Upper East Side. Notably, I have become aware that to have so much space in an apartment is rare on the UES and this was definitely an advantage during my stay! Lorna and her friend were also really respectful of noise and lights on a night which was handy seeing as the sofa bed is in the living room. Staying here was great and had a huge part to play in my overall enjoyment of NYC!

Great place and location!!! You have 2 subways near the house and a few blocks to Central Park. Lorna had to travel in those days, so I saw her for a few minutes when I arrived, but a friend of her was in the house and she was very nice. Everything was great. I recommend it!

Staying at Lorna's Place was great! Nina and I felt very comfortable and enjoyed every single moment in the apartment. Lorna is a very friendly and easy going person. Even though she wasn't at home during the day she made sure that we got the key and could contact her whenever necessary. We had nice conversations but also felt that our private space was respected. The neighborhood is really good, too. Very safe and not too far away from the subway, so we could reach all the sights without any trouble. Thumps up! Thank you, Lorna! Annika

Lorna is friendly and talkative person and a good host. I'm glad to have stayed at her apartment. The room is spacious, we also could use kitchen. The neighbourhood is safe, there are plenty of cafes and restaurants. So I did enjoy my holidays in Manhattan.
