You'll have privacy and space in your own huge room, in the fridge and cupboards, and in my inviting apartment. This is 1 bedroom in a 4 bedroom. If you have any questions I'm always a text or AirBnB message away. I've lived here for 9 years, and love the neighborhood, the restaurants, the space, and the express train to sites.

The space
The apartment is elegant, comfortable, and we make it feel like home. The neighborhood is changing, but maintains it authentic NYC flavor intermingled with young professionals and the actors that stock Broadway's plays.

The apartment is located in Washington Heights, 2 blocks (3 to 4 minute walk) from the A express train and 1 and C local trains. The A train gets you to Time Square in 15 minutes because it's only 4 stops as an Express Train. (Local trains that are 'closer' in distance, take a bit longer). The Neighborhood is the third safest in New York City (seriously, I work in Criminal Justice), but still has an authentic NYC feel. From dollar pizza slices, to chicken and rice, yet right next to the historic Cloisters and in the shadow of the top rated hospital in NYC, this neighborhood allows you to live like a local, but easily get to the tourist spots.

In addition to a wonderful safe place to stay, it's quickly accessible by train to the city (Be at Columbus Circle in 13 minutes on A express train). Upon booking I'll provide you with the basics of NY living so that you can hit the ground running to find your own Adventures (Information on Metrocards, good shopping areas, restaurants, comedy shows, fun Straight/LGBT bars, and clubs). Ask me what you're interested in, and if I don't have any leads, I'll ask around to get you good spots from fun people.

The Room:
You will have exclusive private use of one of the four bedrooms.

Incredibly fast wifi internet (200mb per second) will allow you to easily video chat with friends.

There is one very clean shared bathroom with strong water pressure; and a great shared kitchen with space for you in the fridge and a microwave / toaster oven / coffee maker / electronic kettle / french press for your use. Be willing to clean up after yourself; but a dishwasher makes it easy!

Please tell me a little bit about yourself and your group. It's nice to know.

Basics points: Hair Dryer, Towels, Coffee maker, dishwasher, heated in the winter, air conditioner in the summer, friendly roommate, and fast transportation.

Guest access
Laundry facilities in the building in the basement (and inexpensive) so you don't have to bring dirty clothes back home!

Guests will have access to everything but other bed rooms. Each bedroom is a mini studio apartment.

Washington Heights, New York

Authentic New York, with a young professional tint.

Affordable and delicious food, next to a police station making us the third safest neighborhood in NYC, and a growing restaurant scene. This is the neighborhood that award winning Lin Manuel Miranda made famous with his Broadway Award Winning productions of In the Heights (that's us!) and Hamilton.

Welcome! Lawyer here working with a justice reform organization. I'm a gaybro-nerd. Meaning i'll down a few shots of whiskey and beer with you and discuss anything from Buddhist emotional regulation techniques of mindfulness to CERNs latest developments with the Higgs Boson, and then back to Futurama, Archer and internet memes. I'm social, outgoing, and active, and welcome similar! My space is great for long-termers who want a clean apartment and all utilities included in one flat monthly price! I love this city; this is my home. If you stay with me, I hope to provide you with a homebase. I'm out and about the city a lot during the day because NYC is busy, but I'm always available via. the app.

During your stay
Ranges based on the guest. I'm considerate of privacy and space - because it's NYC and we all need it - but you can ALWAYS reach out to me via. Text, AirBnB or e-mail for anything you need.

When my schedule permits, I've been lucky to bond with some guests. I've helped get internships in fashion for a German sweetheart, hiked a frozen waterfall with a perfusionist from North Carolina, eaten latkes with a Moscowvite. While our schedules may not always align, or guests sometimes just want privacy, I would love to give you a comfortable space.
