Welcome to the East Village, my favorite neighborhood in New York City! You'll be steps away from restaurants, nightlife, and cultural institutions, and the metro is a short 4 blocks away.
The unit is on the ground floor of an authentic NYC apartment building in Manhattan's East Village. No steps...that's a relief!
The bedrooms also face the rear garden, so there is NO street noise.
Guests will have access to a clean pair of sheets, clean towels, and all kitchen appliances including coffee maker, stove, etc. We have also have TV, wifi hotspots, and speakers for your music.
You will meet my fantastic flatmate, Caroline. She will help with keys and probably provide some good ideas about places to go eat. I will always have my phone on me, so please feel free to let me know if you need any good suggestions!
The heart of downtown NYC. The neighborhood is still gritty but with a lot of activity. Hipsters, young professionals, writers, artists, doctors, old-time New Yorkers---we all call this area home. There are a million restaurants, bars, cafes, and shops outside the door.
Subways are super convenient! The 4,5,6 (Green Lines) go uptown to Grand Central Station and downtown, the F (Orange Line) connects you to Penn Station, and the L (Grey Line) goes to Williamsburg in Brooklyn in just one stop under the river! You are central to ALL transport options.
CitiBike stations are everywhere! I recommend buying a day pass--its a great way to see the city!
Also--walking is great here. You are in the best neighborhood in NYC so why not walk to other places nearby? Washington Square Park, the West Village, and SoHo are all a short 15 minute walk away, Union Square is 10 mins by foot, and the Lower East Side is very close by as well.
