The space

Welcome to my abode!

I have lived in this apartment for over 10 years, and have no plans of leaving. I feel as if I really lucked out getting this place, and now I'm so happy to be able to share it with others.

About the apartment: The first thing you'll notice when you walk in is the kitchen. There is a big bright window overlooking the building's garden area, and it is fully stocked with everything you'll need to cook a meal. That's if you can stave off the temptation of eating out at the many amazing local restaurants. (More on that later)

Next is the bathroom on the right which has a shower/tub combination. The shower provides amazing water pressure and doubles as a daily morning massage.

The next door on the right is your room. It features a nice-sized window. A full-sized loft bed leaves open a lot of floor space which makes for a very efficient use of floor space. There's a desk for your laptop, a chest of drawers and plenty of room to hang your clothes.

Next is the living room, which is very spacious has multiple big windows that light pours into during the day. There's original exposed brick all around and a big, very comfy wrap-around couch that faces a flat-panel TV that's HDMI enabled and equipped with Apple TV!

Finally my room is at the end of the apartment.

With this set-up you have the whole front of the apartment basically to yourself.

Guest access

Guests have access to everything except my bedroom.

Interaction with guests

As much or as little as you'd like.

I'm interested in people and would like to become acquainted, but I totally understand privacy and desire some myself.

Other things to note

I offer awesome deals to longer-term guests (2 weeks). Please inquire with me directly for more information

Shawn was a warm, welcoming, and helpful host. We had many interesting conversations (his book collection speaks volumes about his wide-ranging interests!). I had the fortune of meeting some of his wonderful friends, and learning about the neighborhood from them. We even shared some delicious home-cooked meals that Shawn prepared. The apartment is centrally located in East Village. It is a 2 minute walk to public transit. The room is cozy and I felt comfortable there for the duration of my 1 month stay. I’d recommend this place!

Shawn is an amazing host, I did not have a problem in the 4 weeks I stayed in his apartment. Location was great, the apartment was clean, and Shawn was very nice to me every time we talked. I'd would totally stay with him again!

Shawn was very flexible as I asked to stay a week on a few hours notice (he even got me chocolate). As he was out of town most of my stay, I basically had the apartment to myself, which was great value for the money. Communication was easy through (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) and Shawn was very responsive. All in all highly recommended.

Shawns place is great. Close to literally everything you could need - bars, restaurants, the Subway, laundromat etc. Everything in the apartment is exactly as pictured in the listing. Shawn is a great guy and even took me to watch football on my first night. Highly Recommended!

We had a great stay at Shawn's place! The appartment is really nice and has a great location. The subway (2nd Avenue) is just around the corner. Shawn is a friendly, respectful, attentive and welcoming host/person. He is willing to answer every question and respects personal space. Besides, it's very easy to communicate with Shawn on the phone/(SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) or in person. He's a kind guy and really nice to have a talk with. I truly recommend this place for a stay in NYC!
