Quiet, comfortable, clean Star Wars themed bedroom. You will be staying in one of the bedrooms of a 2BR apt. The bathroom, living room, and kitchen are shared. The room is optimal for one person. There is one twin bed. If a second person is booked, they will be sleeping on an additional twin spring mattress, placed on the floor. 45 min. subway ride to Manhattan. 15-25 min. by taxi, 45 min. by public transportation from both JFK & LGA airports. (Note: Newark EWR airport 2 hours away)
The 2BR apartment is on a 2nd floor of a 3 floor multi-family house. We take our shoes off at the entrance. The guest room windows are facing East onto a small backyard (shared by all 3 apartments) and a brick wall of the house across from the yard, so it's very private and quiet by NYC standards. Kitchen is unusually large for an apartment in NYC, with kitchen island and an open layout with living and dining. Guests are welcome to use a part of the fridge & cabinets to store food and cook for themselves in the kitchen. Eating is allowed in the bedroom as long as the room is kept clean, or feel free to eat in the dining room. We have no pets and we do not smoke.
NOTE: We are NOT anywhere near Newark airport (EWR).
Guest bedroom has a closet, desk, office chair, and a twin-sized bed with storage. If you need accommodation for two, please consider the full 1BR apartment listing downstairs. (Look for the second listing under this account.) Verizon Fios Wifi, Basic cable TV with HBO in the bedroom. Shared kitchen with microwave & oven. Shared bathroom - We have a very regular schedule - nighttime bath for son and he goes to bed by 10PM. I ocassionally work from home and usually take a shower during the day when everyone is out of the apartment. Son leaves during weekdays by 7AM. Macbook laptop(s) & printer in the living room can be used on a limited basis when available.
Iron and hair dryer provided. Laundry room is on 1F. Laundry service will pick up & drop off at the door with a 24 hr turnaround, with reasonable pricing.
We will be happy to give you tips on traveling in NYC, but if you want to be left alone, we'll be OK with that too!
