Stay in an airy, art-filled loft in a historic building in Brewerytown, close to transit and within easy walking distance of the Ben Franklin Parkway and Fairmount Avenue. Nearby attractions include the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Barnes Foundation, Eastern State Pennitentiary and the Philadelphia Zoo.
Amenities include AC, wireless internet, a full kitchen and a washer/dryer. Sleeping accommodations include a private bedroom with double bed.
Ideal for commuters or visitors.
The space is a loft apartment in a converted sheet metal fabrication works, dating from 1890, with exposed brick walls, some of the original industrial fixtures preserved in the main room, and art everywhere you look. An airy, light filled space provides a comfortable place to stay while you are in the city.
Guests have access to main room and bedroom, kitchen and bathroom. There is hanging space for clothes in the bedroom closet and a full dresser.
Interaction with guests
Guests must arrive when I am available to meet them (I am not available during the day on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and may also be unavailable at other times during the week, especially some Wednesday afternoons and evenings). I will meet guests to show them the apartment and give them keys.
Guests are asked to respect my privacy, security, and comfort and those of my neighbors in the building.
Please show appropriate care for the pets, and take care not to let them out of the apartment or close them in the guest room.
Excessive noise should be avoided -- especially when coming and going at late or early hours.
Guests are asked not to bring other people to the apartment. (Exceptions may be made with prior permission, but as a general rule please do not count on being able to use the apartment as a meeting or a social space).
Guests should leave the kitchen and the bathroom clean when they are finished using them.
I'm a philosophy professor (no really). I teach in New Jersey and live in an old sheet metal fabrication works in Philadelphia. Most of my travel is for conferences and the like, and its definitely a perk of my profession that I get to see all sorts of interesting places.
