Le logement

PLEASE FILL OUT YOUR PROFILE & POST A PHOTO BEFORE YOU CONTACT ME, SO I KNOW WHO I'M DEALING WITH. IF YOUR PROFILE & PHOTO ARE BLANK, OR IF YOU UPLOAD A PET, BABY PIC OR SOME ARTSY IMAGE INSTEAD OF A CLEARLY RECOGNIZABLE PHOTO OF YOU, I PROBABLY WON'T RESPOND.

This airy room is my back room carpeted office/bedroom. I can accommodate up to 2 people in this 12' square room but prefer to only host one person because it can get really snug with 2 people and their luggage.

You have a choice of either a pull-out sofabed or a comfy aerobed on the carpeted floor. All linens, pillows + towels provided. The back room gets lots of light with windows on two sides (blinds on the windows to keep out the light in the am). It has a 26" HD TV with remote control, clock radio, hair dryer, desk lamp and overhead light/ceiling fan, A/C and a small desk & chair for your laptop (wi-fi throughout the apt). I also have a fax machine in case you need to receive one (there is a charge to send a fax). There is a laundromat nearby. There is a small kitchen where you can do some light food prep and store some items in the fridge.

Everything is here: 42" HDTV and cable in the living room, wifi, laundry service on the block, etc. I'm on a high floor in an elevator building. The apt is very light and airy with beautiful old wood floors, high ceilings, moldings and other features of the great pre-war Apts. (like a huge tub!). Unfortunately, like old pre-war apts. it uses window box air conditioners and they are not the most efficient in cooling off an entire apt. Your room will be cool, but the bathroom will not be air conditioned.

The room faces Broadway - stores, restaurants, supermarkets and bars galore. There is a 24-hour diner 1 block away, a 24-hour drugstore across the street, etc. It's 3 short blocks from one subway, 4 1/2 blocks from the Express train, bus outside the door, crosstown bus 3 short blocks south....7 minute walk to the Central Park Reservoir jogging/walking path.... just a great location on the Upper West Side. Churches, synagogues within a couple of blocks. Starbucks, Dunkin' Donuts, frozen yogurt, salad bar, fresh bagels, pizza, good Chinese food, etc. It's a fabulous, safe, green neighborhood.

Broadway is a commercial street, so there is street noise including a garbage truck which comes by late at night to pick up garbage from the businesses. At some point you may hear them, but they are only there for a few minutes.

The back bedroom is my office, so I often need to get back there to do some work during the day if I'm not out. My guests are welcome to hang out in the living room, watch TV there, work at the dining table, etc. My preference is for someone who is up and out of the room by about 10 am. (of course if I'm not here, it doesn't matter). If you want utter privacy 24/7, this room may not be for you. Once the bed is opened there isn't a lot of floor space left, and I have no closet or shelf space (just hooks and hangars on the back of the door), so my preference is to accommodate 1 person rather than 2, or to host folks with minimal luggage who are happy to live out of their suitcase rather than unpacking their stuff. Two people staying together will be slightly cramped space-wise, especially if they bring a lot of bags, but most visitors have had no problem (please read the reviews of prior guests).

Feel free to write to me with any questions you may have, but read the description carefully first - chances are many of your questions are already answered here.

I get many requests daily, so if you don't hear back from me, it's because I'm overwhelmed with emails. If you get no response within a week, feel free to write again. Thanks!

Autres remarques

If you are noise sensitive, you may want to pack some earplugs for sleeping. If you can't tolerate noise at all, this place is not for you. My windows are charming pre-war windows, but pre-war builders did not know the meaning of "soundproof" when it came to window design. :) If it's summertime and you have the A/C on, that will help block out any noise.

Robin was nice and I stayed at her place for a few nights. It was clean and well located. The only point would be the bed that was pretty thin so I felt the structure pretty much and was not that comfortable. Thanks anyway for making me great in your place!

Thanks for your feedback. I have received your comment once before; but others have said it was just fine for them?? That's why I also have the aerobed mattress to offer as well.

After my 3rd stay at Robin's, I realize that I not only go because her appartment is comfy and well located. I go back again because of Robin herself, who is always such a good guide to make me discover things about NY. So, yes, that's where I'll book again next tme ;)

Back in NY: back to Robin's room! I guess it tells you all you need to know about it: you'll want to come back too! It just feels like "home" in NY and Robin is such a natural hostess.

I'm a full time musician, part time Real estate mogul! :) I love to travel and have friends in all parts of the world. One of the customs I picked up in my travels, and which I exercise in my home now, is the practice of removing outdoor shoes after I enter my Apt. (thanks to the Danes and Japanese!).
