About the property

Welcome To A Great Apartment In The Vibrant East Village! Roof View Of Empire

MY CANCELLATION POLICY SAYS FIRM, BUT I WILL RETURN ALL OF YOUR MONEY IF YOU CANCEL BEFORE 30 DAYS. IT SAYS SO IN MY CONTRACT.

BUNINESS TRAVELER READY

Laptop Friendly Workspace available for business travelers!

Large 2 bedroom with stainless steal appliances/dishwasher. Recreation center and Olympic size pool are right around the corner. Near lots of beautiful community gardens and parks. Also, close to many new clubs and bars but located on quiet block. 4 people can comfortably stay, but there is also a pull out couch for 1-2 extra guests. I also have a blow up mattress and a camping mat that both accommodate 1 person. The place can sleep a total of 8 people, but it is only a 2 bedroom so if you feel you need more space pls rent a 3 or 4 bedroom apartment. I am open to letting up to 8 people stay, but I want you to decide if this is enough room for you before you arrive. Please do not book the place and then say it is not enough space. if you need more space, pls book a bigger apartment. I cannot determine how much space you and your party need. However, I am open to providing affordable accommodation. I have had parties of 6-8 people all say it was plenty of space. I have also have a party of 6 who complained that it was not enough space. I can only tell you how much space it is. Then you can decide if the space is right for you. If it is not big enough, there are bigger apartments for rent.The apartment is about 750 square feet.

This is a no smoking apartment. Please no smoking of any kind in the apartment. You are welcome to smoke on the shared patio or shared roof top.

Street parking, elevator, shared roof access, shared patio access. There is also a pull out couch. Shampoo, sheets, and towels are all available.

Very vibrant, and full of lively restaurants, bars, and galleries The apartment is located on a quiet street. However, not a sterile completely gentrified neighborhood like the Upper East Side or TriBeCa.

It takes 12 minutes to walk to the F train entrance at Houston and 1st Ave(this stop is called the 2nd Ave stop), and 20 minutes to walk to the Delancy St. F train. All off the buses are steps away. The 14D bus comes every 3-4 minutes, the M9 bus comes every 15 minutes, and the M21 bus comes every 1/2 hour. If you are very organized you can take the M21 bus to the 2nd Street F train. I however hate waiting so I usually walk to the entrance at 1st and Houston.

The diversity, the nice people, the art galleries, all the new shops, bars, and restaurants on Ave C. The funky vibe, the vibrant artsy atmosphere, etc.

"A great neighbourhood covered in restaurants, bars, cafes, and shopping options. A friend and I visited many other areas in the city and still thought that the LES and East Village was the most exciting. it is perfectly safe and certainly full of life and activity".

Please read my reviews for more information regarding the neighborhood or ask me anything you would like to know. The closes subway is 12 minutes away, and there are 2 buses that will bring you to the subway in 1-3 minutes.

I offer Amazon Fire TV, Sling TV, HBO, Netflix, ESPN, etc. There are also some pay per view shows and movies. If you watch these, I will be charged. I do not mind as long as you pay me back. If you use the pay per view movies and shows and you do not pay me for them, I will ask you to pay me.

The cleaning fee includes clean sheets, towels, cleaning before you come, and after you leave. If you require extra cleanings, there will be a fee based on what you need.

The apartment away from the Nuyorican Poets Cafe and The Stone.

Disclaimer-A photo of all of the front and back of the IDs of all occupants at the time of booking is required. No 3rd party bookings. If anyone who shows up does not match up with their ID, the entire party will be turned away without a refund. Ask me for my photo!

Why Ann Forbes chose Manhattan

Great deal in vibrant neighborhood. Located on quiet block which is extremely rate in NYC.

Why East Village: Considered part of the Lower East Side until the early 1960s, the East Village became a haven for iconic artists, poets and musicians in the 1970's and 1980's housing the likes of William Burroughs, Lou Reed, Keith Haring – and the Queen of Pop herself - Madonna. With its famously fractured history, the fact that the East Village has become one of the most dynamic places to eat, drink, shop and lay roots is not lost on the old timers who still reside in the area. Recognized as the center of the counterculture movement, its punk past intersects with latin culture, immigrants from all over the world, and gentrified version of the neighbourhood that sees Wall Street wizards mingling with art world acolytes. Old timers say there was a time when over 10 different languages were spoken in Alphabet City which is part of the East Village. Precocious cocktail dens churn out some of the world's best drinks, while the restaurant scene teeters between the cheap and cheerful to romantic, date-night spots. Brunch is a rite of passage for New Yorkers, so get out the door early before the late-night revelers make the wait unbearably long. Take in a live show at one of the many musical haunts or roam the streets for fun vintage finds. Although St. Mark's Place has succumbed to a restaurant chain or two, the area this apartment is located in is still an homages to its rough-and-tumble past without a trace of commercialism and not a single chain restaurant or shop. The art galleries that used to occupy Soho and Chelsea before Chanel and Gucci moved in now litter the East Village and Lower East Side. The East Village is where the true art scene is now located. Walk a block or so in any direction and you will be in one of New York's finest galleries featuring famous and emerging artists alike. The Stone(which is an experimental music hall) is right around the corner.

What makes this apartment unique

Close to NYC's best hot spots, but quiet! Also, near many community gardens. The East Village is a special gem, if you can appreciate it's unique qualities you should stay at my place.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Ann fue una anfitriona muy amable, nos solucionó y resolvió todo lo que le pedimos. El Barrio es muy tranquilo, el depto nos resultó cómodo para los 4 que lo ocupamos. Tenes lineas de bus a la vuelta del depto y de metro a pocas cuadras.



Ann Response from Ann

Gracias por sus amables palabras Marianas usted. Estoy muy feliz de que te ha gustado mi apartamento, y que tenía un buen tiempo aquí en Nueva York, espero conocerte y tu hogar con un solo día otra vez pronto, y me encantaría que te quedas en mi apartamento nuevo.

Graduation Trip

  • 5 of 5

Lisa's place was AMAZING! It was in the perfect location, with many places to eat, shops and easy access to public transportation. We had a family of 5 in NYC for a week. The apartment was very clean and neat. We had enough room for all of us. She kept in contact with us from the day we made our reservation and was very accommodating. She has a very lovely view from the top of the building. We had a beautiful view of the Empire State Building at night. I hope to visit again and would absolutely recommend her place. This was our first time booking a rental, and I was not sure how it would go. But she was AWESOME! If it is your first time renting an apartment for NYC! This is the place to stay! Thank you Lisa! We hope to meet again!

Good place to stay while in NYC

  • 5 of 5

Nice little apartment. We were a family of 6 (2 adults, 3 teens, 1 preschool) who travel a lot. This is a fine place to stay while in New York, very convenient. Beds were comfortable. Lots of grocery stores and restaurants nearby. The subway (F line) is a 10 minute walk away and there is also the option of bus a bit closer. The place is small but this is normal for New York - we really liked the apartment. Very quiet. The rooms faced the street and we heard no noise. We were there during a cold spell and the heating in the apartment worked well. The owner goes out of her way to help if any issues come up - we appreciated that very much and are very thankful.

If you have a car, parking is on the street but you really need to look for it. Don't park within 15 feet of a fire hydrant.

We were very happy and would stay here again if we are ever in NYC.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. You guys were great guests and I hope to have you again soon. Just one thing, I want to clarify. In the 1st paragraph of my listing I state that the apartment is 750 sq ft which really isn't small for NYC.

Perfect spot!

  • 5 of 5

Went with four girlfriends to New York and stayed at Lisa's place for a week, and it fit us perfectly! It's kinda far to the subway but almost right outside the apartment are bus stops that takes you to the subway or anywhere you need to go.

The area is great with a lot of cozy restaurants and bars and we had a really great time!

Lisa was an excellent host and made sure that we had everything we needed! Will definitely recommend this to our friends :)

Thank you Lisa!!

awesome location

  • 5 of 5

This place was awesome. My family of 7 which included my young children really loved the place. About a 20 minute walk with small ones to the closest subway. Adults can make it in 10 minutes easy. You can also take the bus from the residence to the subway if you don't want to walk to subway. It's a quiet place to stay while visiting NYC. The neighborhood around the apartment has a lot of clubs and bars for younger adults. We would walk by them every night and the crowd was really nice. Very happening place! The top of the apartment has a place to chill on the rooftop with the most amazing view of the city. All 7 ( 4 adults 3 small children under 11) of us slept comfortably with no problem. The lady who's place it is was very nice and you could contact her by cell phone immediately if you needed to. We were out every night till midnight or a little past that and we walked home every night without any issues. If you want to experience NYC like a true New Yorker then this is the place to stay.

Download the subway app and you can get anywhere you need to get be in a short walk from this apartment.

Location

Car: not necessary

Very vibrant, and full of lively restaurants, bars, and galleries but the apartment is located on a quiet street. However, not a sterile completely gentrified neighborhood like the Upper East Side or TriBeCa.

You can also rent a car and visit beautiful upstate New York, and go for a hike.
