It's a cute, sunny 3-room apartment in the perfect location on between the West Village and Soho. This coveted neighborhood is filled with trendy restaurants, independent film theaters, and an array of coffeeshops and boutique shopping. Located in a converted tenement building, this 3rd floor walkup (two flights up from street level) has new hardwood floors, tons of morning and early afternoon sun, a great view down 6th Avenue, and only-in-NYC charm like a shower in the kitchen!
Although you're only a short walk from the Lower East Side, Chinatown, SoHo, Tribeca, The West Village, The East Village, Union Square, NYU, Flatiron, Meatpacking District, Chelsea and more, the apartment is less than three blocks from 3 subway stops... that covers the A, B, C, D, E, F, M, 1, 2, 3 trains. There are also convenient bus routes along 6th Ave and Houston St.
There's a large kitchen with full gas stove and large counter/prep area; you'll have a stovetop espresso maker and a Nespresso Aeroccino frother plus a SodaStream... state of the art, if you want to stay in. You might never use any of that, though, since you're the middle of restaurant and espresso shop heaven. Modern Italian, Jamaican, Barbeque, Indian, upscale, French, Thai, Noodle Bar, Vegan... you name it, we've got it within 5 minutes walk.
Because the apartment is tenement style, it existed before bathrooms, meaning the toilet and the shower are add ons from some point post 1930. The toilet is located in a water closet off of the bedroom, and the shower is attached to an clawfoot tub, located next to where the water was during Civil war days: in the kitchen. Although that might sound odd, it works just fine... it's maybe even fun... it'll be a story to tell, that's for sure.
Aside from the bedroom and the large kitchen with shower, there is a cozy living room with windows and sun, plus a bookshelf full of books for your relaxing pleasure. Even though you'll spend most of your time wandering the best part of New York, you'll be comfortable in this quiet and uncramped home away from home.
Enjoy the food in fridge and use of anything in the apartment. Please take care to be respectful of neighbors and keep private the fact that you are airbnb guests. Enjoy and make yourself at home.
