I moved from LA to NY and this is all I wanted, a simple room, some natural light and an impeccable location...
here we are, East Village.
I have a cozy (yes, cozy=small) room with eclectic (indie/weird/etc..) decor & plenty of reccos!
This is a 3 bedroom apartment with a proper kitchen and living room space. Our living room has exposed brick, so you get that 'i'm in new york' feel :) and the room has a fire escape that I sit on once in a great while.
We are in a prime location, a block away from the L train and walking distance to Union Square (L, N, Q, R, 4, 5, 6 trains). There are plenty of incredible restaurants, coffee shops, as well as beer and cocktail bars in the area.
Union Square hosts a beautiful market on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Walk through, pick up some things and make a meal at our home. Counter space is limited but I live with a trained chef and another passionate cook so we have utensils and cookbooks for days.
Since we are in a bustling neighborhood there is a bit of noise of the avenue at night but it is a part of the city charm. I warned you!
We have an unofficial rooftop with incredible views of One World Trade and the Empire State Building, we picnic up here as often as we can and smoking visitors use it to their advantage.
I live with two other roommates that are super friendly and will be a great resource for you.
Born and raised Orange County native, went to university in San Diego, traveled a bit of Europe and Asia, lived in LA and have now wandered my way East, NYC. I'm a bit of a nomad, vagabond, gypsy, whatever you would call it.
Love music, competition, adventure, and the great outdoors.
