My space offers an oasis of calm during a visit to glorious hectic NYC. All amenities are included and you will have the place completely to yourselves. Simply arrive and begin to relax.
This light-filled spacious one-bedroom has a view of the NY Harbor and is approximately a half hour train ride away from lower Manhattan. The space is very simple, clean, and spare. Two queen size beds are available, as well as a small couch that is pretty comfortable for sleeping if you're not too tall.
All linens, kitchen supplies, and utilities are provided. There is also air conditioning in the bedroom and high-speed wireless internet. However, there are only local TV channels (no cable) and the apartment is located on the 4th Floor of a walk-up, so it is important to be up for that too.
Depending on your day/time of arrival, I am happy to meet you and make sure you get settled in. I will be easily reached by email or phone while I am away and do not mind being contacted. In general though, I trust that you will let me know if you need anything and that otherwise we won't be in too much touch.
I don't have any pets but I do have three window boxes and two small plants that I'm hoping you will water while I am away.
No rules, really -- just requests. I'd rather you didn't smoke in the apartment, but there is roof access in this building (quite unusual and special!) only one more flight up -- with a view of the Statue of Liberty and Manhattan -- so that's where friends generally smoke when they come over. And my most serious request/plea: please don't bring in any old furniture or clothes or anything that you might find on the street because the city is having a bed bug epidemic and that is the way that the bugs come in.
