Come live like a New Yorker with a lifelong New Yorker!
You'll be staying in a huge bedroom (14x14) with a large closet, queen size bed (that is so comfortable people have purchased the same mattress after staying with me), and TV connected to an XBox. Its an amazing sanctuary for anyone looking to have an amazing time in NYC.
The building has 24-hour security/doorman and is an elevator building.
I also need to stress how huge the room is. Plus the ceilings are really tall. You won't find a room like this anywhere!
For music fans: parts of the book "Meet Me In The Bathroom," the oral history chronicling the NYC music scene from 2001-2011, took place in my apartment!
The apartment is located in a prime Lower East Side location that's just walking distance from the best bars and music venues in the country. There's also a citibike kiosk right under your window, so in theory, you could jump out your window and land right onto a bike seat - but i would really prefer you didn't try that.
Places that are just a quick walk away:
Clinton Street Baking Company, Katz Deli, Russ & Daughters, Morgansterns Ice Cream, Meatball Shop, Ivan Ramen, Le Turtle, Il Bagatto, Welcome to the Johnsons, The Hotel On Rivington, Mercury Lounge, Pianos, Bowery Ballroom, Hotel Chantelle, Williamsburg Bridge, Chinatown, Soho, and East Village. This location is amazing.
I work as a Music Director for a women's fashion brand, DJ, and used to run a record label and be a music magazine editor and twice published book author.
Guests will have access to a full kitchen - with dishwasher! Wifi, closet, a 50" tv, and a washer/dryer in the building. Across the street you'll find a 24-hour deli, laundromat and dry cleaners, and art gallery!
I will often be around to welcome the guests and direct them to the BEST places to go to in the neighborhood and making sure they feel like they're at home. I love people and i love hosting!
I've lived in this same apartment since 2002, so there's a lot that I love about the neighborhood. Just down the road are some of the best dive bars and music venues. Not only that, but some of the best restaurants are super close - such as Clinton Street Baking Company, home to the best pancakes in the world.
Just outside the apartment is a citibike kiosk where you can rent bikes for the day or week or year! They're literally five feet from the entrance. The F/M/J/M/Z train is located just 5 blocks away!

I will be more than happy to offer up suggestions for anything you need!
If you're a big music fan - specifically music that defined the NYC music scene in the early/mid 00's - you will love this apartment and it's rich history in that scene. Read the book "Meet Me in The Bathroom" since some of that book takes place in my apartment!
The house rules are fairly lax - come and go whenever you want. I'm typically a night owl so I'm often not even asleep until about 2am, and I'm a heavy sleeper so waking me up is not an issue. I just ask that you're thoughtful on whom you bring back to the apartment (I really don't want random people coming here).
