Enjoy a great night's sleep in my private apartment on Central Park. If you want to experience life as a TRUE New Yorker, in one of Manhattan's most up-and-coming authentic neighborhoods, this is the spot for you!
Come home from a day of exploring museums, boutiques, and Central Park to relax in my spacious, high-ceiling, traditional uptown Manhattan apartment with southern sunlight exposure. You will have access to my whole apartment: bedroom with one queen bed, closet space, full kitchen, bathroom, and living room with two sleep-able couches. Although not in close walking distance to the major tourist sites, the red and green train lines are only a few minutes away, and you can be downtown in 20 minutes. Perfect for those who like leave the bustle of downtown to sleep in a quiet neighborhood, and great for those visiting Mt. Sinai Hospital, Museum Mile, and Central Park. There is no elevator, but the apartment is only one floor up.
You'll have the whole apartment to yourselves!
Interaction with guests
You'll have full privacy at my apartment. Please feel free to text or email with any question while you're here! I'm happy to help whenever you need something, even just for advice on where to go and what to see!
Other things to note
The queen sized bed comfortably fits two people. However, if you have one or two additional (smaller) people, the sofas in the living room fold out/extend for extra bed space. These small couches are best for children, so I recommend that tall guests sleep in the bedroom!
Also, even though the bedroom in the back of the apartment is very quiet when you're sleeping, the living room faces the street. If you have extra guests sleeping in the living room, it can get noisy on the street with cars and neighbors socializing outside on warm summer nights. If guests on the sofas have a hard time with city noise, I have provided some ear plugs :)
Parking is free on the street in front of my apartment, but there is no assigned parking space. It rarely takes me more than 5-15 minutes to find a spot. You never have to move the car on the weekend, but in New York you have to switch to the other side of the street 4 times during the week.
This location is in a Central Park residential area, not downtown. To get to the main tourist attractions, you will need to take the subway (about 20 minutes).
This space is open to all races, genders, religions, nationalities, and identities. The apartment is LGBT friendly and I do not discriminate against anyone. East Harlem is a very diverse neighborhood, so please maintain the respectful vibe!
- Your check out time is 11am. If you check out late and it interferes with the time of the next guest's arrival, you will be billed a late fee of the price of one night for the inconvenience to the cleaner and the next guest.
- Only use the sheets and towels you need.
- Clean up after yourself before you check out. Throw any food in the garbage before you go, and please don't leave dirty dishes in the sink and on the counters. There are garbage cans and recycling cans on the street. Please try to keep garbage separate from recyclable glass, plastic, and paper.
- You are only allowed to bring the number of guests that you've confirmed in your reservation. Please don't invite additional guests to my home without my permission. Parties and events are not allowed -- this is a strictly enforced rule.
- If you break something, please let me know as soon as possible.
- Smoking is not allowed.
- Do not mention Airbnb to anyone else in the building, just explain that you're my friend visiting, if they ask.
- Do not use the air conditioner when the windows are open.
- The beauty of Airbnb is that you get to stay in my apartment and experience what it's like to live as a New Yorker, rather than just staying in a generic hotel. That will let you see both the positive AND the negative charms of old-building apartment life in NYC. I sincerely hope everything about your trip exceeds your expectations, but if you do encounter any problems (wifi, TV, street noise, temperature, neighbors, cleanliness, linens/bedding, or anything else) please let me know as soon as possible so I can try to fix it for you! New York is a chaotic place, so please try to be patient with the quirks of living with 8 million noisy neighbors, in buildings built before electricity and adjustable temperature controls were invented ;)
