About this listing
My 2 bedroom apartment has classic East Village character with a cozy bedroom with a sleeping loft bed. Guests who stay here get to enjoy a truly downtown New York City experience.
Please note there is no longer a cat on site.
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.
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.
There is a lot to appreciate about this space and its surrounding neighborhood. From the history to the people to the architecture to the vibrant energy. The area has a true neighborhood feel that the residents have worked hard to maintain .
I love walking down 1st Ave and within 5 minutes seeing a person or place that represents every far flung corner of this world. I love the tree on 1st Ave and 5th St that blooms the best smelling flowers on summer nights.
Basically, I love it all, and I'm sure you will too!
You'll be in the heart of the East Village.
