Beautiful 2-bedroom apt on a lovely tree lined street that overlooks a community garden. Close walk to many museums, Central Park, & food. Buses right outside the front door & the subway is just a couple blocks away so you can get downtown quickly!

Le logement
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
THE APARTMENT:
I have a beautiful 2-bedroom apartment that overlooks a community garden, in Lower East Harlem (I like to call it the Upper-Upper East Side or UUES). I live on a lovely tree lined street and am a close walk to many museums, Central Park, food, buses and Subway stations.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I occasionally rent out one room to responsible and sensible adults who'd like an incredible place to stay while visiting Manhattan. I'm located very close to midtown by subway (15 min) but live in a peaceful and relatively quiet NYC neighborhood. ...and you'll pay much less here than at a mediocre hotel in noisy Times Square! In contrast, my apartment is just off street level enough to be away from the street noise and get a birds eye view of a beautiful garden, all you'll have to do is walk up two flights of stairs when you come home for these benefits!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- My place has two rooms, one on each end of the apartment, with the living room, kitchen, and bathroom in between. I airbnb one room (this listing) and live in the other room. The whole apartment is fully furnished and has an A/C in the common areas & each room (when the temp dips below 40F, generally Nov-April, I take the a/c out of the bedroom windows).  The apartment is decorated with vintage wallpaper, has fresh a paint job every 2-3 years and has had a kitchen makeover too.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I keep the apartment very clean and I would like guests that are clean as well. There is also plenty of natural light because each room has at least two windows that overlook the community garden.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Your stay includes...
- an air-conditioned/heated room
- use of the kitchen,
- one set of soft towels per guest and linens,
- FREE Wi-Fi, and...
- homemade English scones and tea service for your breakfast enjoyment*.
*NOTE: If I'm out-of-town I can't bake scones. You'll get the place to yourself however, and that will be the tradeoff!! ...the price will be the same (no discount for lack of scones or price increase because you have the apartment to yourself BUT NOT THE USE OF MY BEDROOM). ;-)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- There is free pick-up/ drop-off laundry service close by if you want to have anything washed during your stay (don't forget to tip, the laundry costs are super reasonable, the pick-up/drop-off is free)
- Great restaurants across the street where you can order takeout or dine-in.
- There is also a nearby nail salon where you can get a manicure AND a pedicure together for $25 total!! Why not, ech?  
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ABOUT ME: I'm a really easy-going, professional, gal that loves to host visitors periodically and help them feel at home in NYC. I'm pretty busy, so a lot of time I will be working in the office (Close by) or in the 2nd room (my bedroom) or out on a shoot or teaching, ...but I'm available if you have questions. Feel free to do a web search if you want more info on me (search:LaNola Stone).
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
All I ask from you is that you're clean, polite and respectful. In turn, I guarantee you an extremely comfortable and clean space in which you will feel completely at home, safe and welcome. I also love to travel and I'm open to housing swaps.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ALSO IMPORTANT TO ME... I strive for "zero waste" and recycle or compost most things, I would appreciate that my guests put waste in the proper place so I can take "green" waste to the community garden to compost and everything else to the recycle leaving me a small amount of trash. Don't worry, I have the waste containers clearly marked!
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
NO SMOKERS, DRUNKS OR DRUG ADDICTS. Those are all the restrictions :O)  If you have more questions please contact me.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I live on the 3rd floor so if you can't carry your luggage up two flights of stairs, this room may not work for you.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
----------
Please note that ONE SET/guest of fresh and soft towels and linens are included for your use, as well as body wash and a hair dryer. No need to pack any of that!**
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
** Let me know if you would like a cleaner to come during your stay. The cleaners charge $65 for a cleaning visit but will change your linens and put out a fresh set of towels too. This can be a good option for longer stays and the cost can be added that to the charge for your stay.

The guest(s) will have access to…
- kitchen for cooking if you'd like and clean up after yourself;
- living room/seating area (just outside the bedroom) for chatting - NOT EATING;
- ...and the bathroom for bathroom stuff.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- WiFi: The whole apartment has a wireless high-speed Internet connection (included), which will be useful if you have a laptop/tablet/phone.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- I have a land line phone in the living room for making local calls and so you can call my cell phone if I am not at home but you have a question or need to reach me quickly.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
THE BEDROOM: The room has a cozy Full sized "real" mattress bed AND a small Single/Large Cot sized bed
COT SIZED BED-- NOTE: this bed is lofted 5 feet off the ground, without rails - NOT a "real bed" but a futon mattress. - This bed is handy in a pinch, 29" x 72" - (160lb weight limit if left on loft ...but it's okay to put the mattress on the floor if you prefer, abt 50% of my guests do this). PLEASE SEE THE PHOTOS FOR A DIAGRAM OF THE BED SIZES. -- The best situation is TWO people in the room BUT I allow a third if you are comfortable with that many in the small room.
The room is private with a lockable door. The bedroom has two closets (only the one under the loft bed is for your use—the other closet is locked and for my storage). The open closet also has hangers.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The room is small and cozy but there is room for two in the full bed and, if you need a place for a third, another person can sleep in the loft bed (160lbs limit - note the size of the mattress, and height of the loft to make sure this works for you).
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The main bed has a VERY comfortable full-sized mattress with clean and fresh 800 thread count cotton sheets/pillows. Aside from washing the linens and mattress cover before each guest, I also steam the mattress and pillows.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The apartment does not have a TV, but why would you want to watch TV anyway? YOU'LL BE IN NEW YORK CITY, Yo!! ;-) …but the wiFi hot-spot is right in the room and is great for watching a program on the internet (if you have a tablet or laptop). This streaming speed will keep you happy if you must stay in and watch a show. ;-)
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I prefer that guests NOT be in my sleeping area for any reason because that is just creepy. ;-)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Oh, and the guest will be able to come and go at their leisure. There is no curfew or anything like that. You'll have your own key.

LASTLY, I just decided that if some need more space, I'm willing to book the WHOLE APARTMENT -- sometimes; especially if I am traveling for Christmas, etc. My room is currently being renovated and is almost done! It will be ready in October... The listing for that space is...

FROM THE "NOT FOR TOURISTS" GUIDE:
Whew, finally a break from the chaos. This part of the Upper Upper East Side is a place for families, young, old, black, white, Latino, rich, poor--it just depends what block you stumble upon. Head above 96th Street for some of the best Mexican food on the planet, or head west to Central Park, where you'll find kids and adults playing soccer, softball, and football (Not touristy Central Park). Get some culture at the neighborhoods museums, get some knowledge at a lecture at the 92nd Street Y, but most importantly, get ready to be somewhere where people can actually live, work, and shop. Nothing hip or cool here, this is just a good old-fashioned New York neighborhood.

Much of this part of the Upper East Side is known as Carnegie Hill, named for the Carnegie Mansion on 91st and Fifth Avenue (it's now the Cooper-Hewitt Design Museum).

---
THE NEIGHBORHOOD:
The "Museum Mile" is just 3 blocks away on Fifth Avenue, next to Central Park, a mere 5-7 minute walk away.

Museum Mile incorporates the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum at 88th Street, The Met (Metropolitan Museum of Art) from 82nd to 86th Streets, as well as El Museo del Barrio (104th St), Museum of the City of New York (103rd St), Jewish Museum (92nd Street), Cooper-Hewitt National Museum of Design (91st St), National Academy Museum and School of Fine Arts (89th St), and Goethe House German Cultural Center (82nd St) ...all on or near Fifth Avenue (a short stroll away)!

The Central Park Conservatory Garden entrance is located: 105th Street and Fifth Avenue. The Conservatory Garden is SO close and beautiful, it's often overlooked but surely worth a visit.

There's a "gourmet" grocery three blocks south on Park Avenue if you want to eat like a king at home (great cheese selection), or plenty of cool restaurants in the neighborhood to eat at or order from (partially listed below so you can look them up ahead of time or I'll be happy to give you more suggestions on all this!) ...and a farmers markets a few blocks away on Thursdays (at 104th & 3rd) and Fridays (99th & 3rd) June-November.

---
Restaurants (w/in 2blocks): Joy Burger (American), Lexington Pizza Parlor (Italian), Mustache (Middle-Eastern), MY NY (Bakery, Café), Gong (Thai) …and more

...also refer to the guide book with this post and there will be a printed guidebook, with more details and menus, in the room as well.

I'm a New York City-based professional photographer, artist, author, and educator. My commercial clients hire me to photograph interiors, portraits, and lifestyle, although I'm mostly know for my aptitude with children and childhood imagery. In 2012, Focal Press published my first book, "Photographing Childhood: the Image & the Memory." I received my master's degree in digital photography at the School of Visual Arts in New York City and have taught photography in both Salt Lake City (UT) and New York City. Additionally, I am a 1st Class Petty Officer / Public Affairs Specialist (photojournalist / media liaison) for the United States Coast Guard Reserve, aunt to twenty-five and godparent to five. You can find out more about me with a web search with my name (LaNola Stone). I'm usually one of the top hits for the first couple pages. ;-)

INTERACTION: I am fine interacting as much or as little as is naturally warranted. I have made many friends through airbnb and generally have the most wonderful, cool guests. At the same time, I feel that since the guest is on holiday, it's their call. You don't need to entertain or worry about me, I am busy with my own things ...but excited for your visit and always willing to answer questions and help when I can and am needed! :-)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I'll bake scones for breakfast everyday and will set them out.* I will not join you for breakfast unless invited and I have the time. During breakfast time, however, is usually a good time to ask me about tips and information about your day on the town. I will help anyway I can!
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*NOTE: If I'm out-of-town I can't bake scones. You'll get the place to yourself however, and that will be the tradeoff!! ...the price will be the same (no discount for lack of scones or price increase because you have the apartment to yourself, NOT MY ROOM).
