You'll have privacy and space in your own huge room, in the fridge and cupboards, and in my inviting apartment. This is 1 bedroom in a 4 bedroom. If you have any questions I'm always a text or AirBnB message away. I've lived here for 6 years, and love the neighborhood, the restaurants, the space, and the express train to sites.
WaHi is a neighborhood where old NYC meet young NY. Safe, but authentic, and quick commute to Times Square and key sites in NYC thanks to the Express Train.
The apartment is elegant, comfortable, and we make it feel like home. The neighborhood is changing, but maintains it authentic NYC flavor intermingled with young professionals and the actors that stock Broadway's plays.
When I meet our guests, sometimes the stars align and we become friends. I've had the pleasure of getting internships in fashion for a German sweetheart, hiked a fozen waterfall with a perfusionist from North Carolina, eaten latkes with a Moscowvite. While our schedules don't always align, or guests sometimes just want privacy, I would love to show you my NY with an in room guest book, or recommendations so you can make your own experience. :)
The apartment is located in Washington Heights, 2 blocks (3 to 4 minute walk) from the A express train and 1 and C local trains. The A train gets you to Time Square in 15 minutes because it's only 4 stops as an Express Train. (Local trains that are 'closer' in distance, take a bit longer). The Neighborhood is the third safest in New York City (seriously, I work in Criminal Justice), but still has an authentic NYC feel. From dollar pizza slices, to chicken and rice, yet right next to the historic Cloisters and in the shadow of the top rated hospital in NYC, this neighborhood allows you to live like a local, but easily get to the tourist spots.
In addition to a wonderful safe place to stay, it's quickly accessible by train to the city (Be at Columbus Circle in 13 minutes on A express train). Upon booking I'll provide you with the basics of NY living so that you can hit the ground running to find your own Adventures (Information on Metrocards, good shopping areas, restaurants, comedy shows, fun Straight/LGBT bars, and clubs). Ask me what you're interested in, and if I don't have any leads, I'll ask around to get you good spots from fun people.
You will have exclusive private use of one of the four bedrooms. Beautifully decorated by my designer whose now been featured in (website hidden), vogue, and several other great magazines and sites!
Incredibly fast wifi internet (200mb per second) will allow you to easily video chat with friends.
There is one very clean shared bathroom with strong water pressure; and a great shared kitchen with space for you in the fridge and a microwave / toaster oven / coffee maker / electronic kettle / french press for your use. Be willing to clean up after yourself; but a dishwasher makes it easy!
Please tell me a little bit about yourself and your group. It's nice to know.
Me: I'm a lawyer (PASSED THE BAR Y'ALL!), working to make NYC safer, while keeping it affordable and accessible to people of all economic groups. I'm additionally, gay, so please be accepting of that!
Basics points: Hair Dryer, Towels, Coffee maker, dishwasher, heated in the winter, air conditioner in the summer, friendly roommate, and fast transportation.
Laundry facilities in the building in the basement (and inexpensive) so you don't have to bring dirty clothes back home!
Guests will have access to everything but other bed rooms. Each bedroom is a mini studio apartment.
Ranges based on the guest. I'm considerate of privacy and space - because it's NYC and we all need it - but you can ALWAYS reach out to me via. Text, AirBnB or e-mail for anything you need.
When my schedule permits, I've been lucky to bond with some guests. I've helped get internships in fashion for a German sweetheart, hiked a frozen waterfall with a perfusionist from North Carolina, eaten latkes with a Moscowvite. While my schedules may not always align with yours, or guests sometimes just want privacy, I would love to give you a comfortable space.
Basics points: Hair Dryer, Towels, Coffee maker, dishwasher, heated in the winter, air conditioner in the summer, friendly roommates, and fast transportation.

Welcome! Lawyer here working with the local prosecutor's office in the Bronx. Don't worry, I'm progressive and reform minded :)
I'm a gaybro-nerd. Meaning i'll down a few shots of whiskey and beer with you and discuss anything from Buddhist emotional regulation techniques of mindfulness to CERNs latest developments with the Higgs Boson, and then back to Futurama, Archer and internet memes.
I'm social, outgoing, and active, and welcome similar!
I love this city; this is my home. If you stay with me, I hope to provide you with a homebase.
(or if you want to be left alone that's cool too!)
