Über dieses Inserat

One bedroom available in a two bedroom apt sharing with a professional woman. The bedrooms are at opposite ends of the apt and each person has complete privacy. Eat-in kitchen, living/dining room, and one bathroom to share. The best of all worlds: redone kitchen (including new dishwasher) and newly renovated bath with original high ceilings and moldings from the 1920s.

Der Wohnraum

Seven glorious windows facing south on the fifth floor of an elevator building with nothing blocking the view. One bedroom available to house guest in a two bedroom apt sharing with a professional woman. The bedrooms are at opposite ends of the apt and each person has complete privacy. New, modern eat-in kitchen (new dishwasher, microwave and modern gas stove) living/dining room, and one (newly refurbished) bathroom to share. Wifi, cable TV (250 channels including lots of movie channels ) in each room, printer, ceiling fans in each bedroom, A/C in season.

Located 2 blocks from #1 subway, a block from CCNY, 2 subway stops or a 20 minute walk from Columbia, 25 - 30 minutes to mid-town (Times Sq, Broadway theaters, Rockefeller Center), 1 block from Riverbank State Park with a dirt-cheap gym and all sports facilities including two fabulous pools in summer and a skating rink in the winter. All amenities within steps. It's an easy, pleasant, safe and happy place to live.....with the added benefit of two people-friendly kittens in residence.

Zugang für Gäste

The entire apt excluding my bedroom. Housemates are expected to use the kitchen as their own. And it is fully furnished for anyone who likes to cook. Half the fridge and half the freezer are available as well as shelf space for dry goods.

Interaktion mit Gästen

My bookings are normally a minimum of two weeks and usually one month. I prefer this so that there is the chance to get to know each other if we feel like it and the apt doesn't feel like a hotel to either of us. On the other hand, I assume the housemate, as I prefer to call them, is an adult with an active life outside the apt and outside my life. Interaction can be as much or as little as accommodates both of us. One of the real attractions of this situation springing from economic necessity is I get to meet very interesting people with very interesting lifestyles. I don't expect to interfere in anyone's life or life styles; nor do I expect them to interfere in mine.

Jane is a fantastic host. She made sure I had everything I needed and was always there if I had questions about the neighborhood or anything else. There is enough space in the room even for longer stays. The kitchen and the rest of the apartment are fully equipped - Jane collected a variety of furniture and items from all over the world. Even though she was suffering from some problems with her knees, Jane was usually in good spirits and would eagerly share a drink and have an interesting conversation. In the busy neighborhood you'll find plenty of delis, shops, restaurants, etc. While this is extremely convenient, it also means that you'll notice some noise from the street in the apartment - especially if you open the windows (which you have to do in wintertime due to the strong heating). Other than that I enjoyed staying in Jane's apartment - I would definitely come back!

My stay in Jane's apartment has been very good. Jane is a perfect host and flatmate. I enjoyed the conversation with her and she gave to me good tips about the city. I have chosen Jane's apartment mainly for its proximity to my work place, but the area turn is also very nice, it has all the shops you need and the apartment is very close to the subway station to go in the upper west side and downtown in few minutes. The room is nice and cosy, it gets only a bit too warm as it has radiators that you cannot tune. The cats are lovely, they are a bit shy at the beginning but they have to get used to new people. Unfortunately, they allowed me to get close to them only in the very last days of my stay. I recommend Jane's apartment!

The apartment was just as advertised. Quite beautiful with all the amenities a traveler could want. The bed was particularly comfortable. It was very clean, despite the two (lovely) cats. Jane was always available and an agreeable, interesting host. Was truly happy with my decision to stay there. Cheers, Jane!

My stay was quite pleasant as Jane was kind and welcoming. There is also a nice park with great views of the Hudson river nearby. There were some issues with the bathroom, which were out of Jane's control, but the situation was quickly addressed. This should not be problematic for future guests.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Jane's place. She anticipated all my needs and was very accommodating. Jane was easy to get along with. She is a well traveled individual and very intelligent - we had great talks/sharing sessions. It was just like staying/visiting with a friend. The apartment was very comfortable. Its location was ideal - just 2 blocks from a main subway line and 4 stops from my daughter place - who I was in the city to spend time with. There is a lovely park just a block from Jane's and her neighborhood is full of friendly people and any service one might need when traveling - good restaurants, laundries, grocery outlets and small shops, etc. I felt very safe walking the community. I would definitely stay again and plan to in the future - Raymond

Jane is a fantastic, lovely, knowledgable woman and she made me feel like home as soon as I got there. I stayed with her and her cats for one mouth and we had great conversations and connected well. She was showing me different events that was happening in Manhattan and taught me a lot about America and Americans. The apartment is very close to the 1 train, Riverbank State Park and Riverside Park, which I appreciated. I loved the room and the bed and would definitely book with her again.

This was my first airbnb experience and I am glad to say that I had a good stay and fantastic summer in NYC. Jane is friendly and generous. She made all the efforts to make me conformable in her apartment. As much as I enjoyed our conversations, she regularly gave me tips about things to do and how to get around in NYC. As a new comer it was very helpful. We also watched plays and movies together. The apartment is nice and clean and my room was equipped with all the basic necessities. Jane has two cats (Shadow and Tuffy) who are equally friendly and I loved spending time with them too. I had a good time and would chose to come back in future.

Internationally oriented (banking and economic development for most of my career) and then 10 years as a special ed teacher in a NYC high schools. Now I'm not working in an corporate/government environment - have taken early retirement from the school system and am plotting the next segment of my life. In the interim, I love having fun, interesting people around.
