You have a choice of the airbed shown, or you could open the futon to sleep on if you preferHallway leading to your room. Your room is on the left, my room is near the arch you see all the way at the back, so your space is really very private despite only having a screen.

The space

A large light living room closed off from the rest of the apartment with two screens. The layout of the apartment makes the room feel very private since it is far from my bedroom. You can sleep on an air mattress or the futon, whichever is more comfortable for you. The apartment is basic, with necessary furniture, but not more than that. The room has a basic futon, an air mattress, an oldish table, and a rug. There is only one other person, myself, in the apartment (and 2 cats). One cat lives in the hallway area at night and when I am asleep. A guest must be animal friendly.

Guest access

Shared bathroom, foyer, kitchen.

Interaction with guests

I am a middle aged professor and work quite a lot. I'll be available sporadically depending on my work schedule. I often work at home, preparing my lectures and marking homework. The home is very quiet and it is important my guest also be quiet.

The neighbourhood

Sunnyside is extremely close to Manhattan. It's 20 minutes to Grand Central station. The neighborhood itself has all necessary conveniences like supermarkets and drug stores. It also has lots of cafes and excellent restaurants including Chinese Indian fusion, Tibetan, Japanese and many Irish pubs. It's Queens, so it's not gorgeous, but it's very safe and convenient. And the restaurants are delicious and interesting.

Getting around

4 blocks from the 40th St.-Lowery stop in the 7 subway line. This takes you to midtown Manhattan in 20 minutes. There are also 2 express buses to Manhattan. Very easy access to all the tourist attractions of Manhattan. 20 minutes to Rockefeller Center, The Highline, Grand Central station and Midtown Manhattan.

Other things to note

Guest must be cat friendly. I have 2 cats (and since they fight, one of them lives in the living room, hallway area).
The cat jumps up on the kitchen counters and table. If you are not an animal lover, you might be uncomfortable with my cat Simon.
