Alyssa's place was great - it had everything you needed and greatly located in NYC! In the lower east side, you are surrounded by restaurants, bars and cafes. The place is near M14A, M15, M8 busses and walkable to L train. Getting and returning keys was easy. Alyssa was great on the communication front. Only thing is, if you like to sleep in, bring a sleep mask because there are no curtains and the sun shines brightly into the unit.
