Huge bright private room closed with screen, not door. In Sunnyside Queens, 20 minutes to midtown Manhattan. Very convenient: 5 minutes to subway 7 line (40th st. Lowery), stores, cute cafes, restaurants. Air mattress or Futon.
A large light living room closed off from the rest of the apartment with two screens. The layout of the apartment makes the room feel private since it is far from my bedroom and the kitchen and bathroom. You can sleep on an air mattress or the futon, whichever is more comfortable for you. The apartment is basic, with necessary furniture, but not more than that. The room has a basic futon, an air mattress, an oldish table, a rug, a few draws and some book shelves. There is only one other person, myself, in the apartment (and 2 cats). Since my cats fight, one cat is not allowed in my bedroom and lives in the hallway and your room. When I have a guest staying in the room where the cat usually lives, I spend some time in the kitchen keeping my cat company.

I am a middle aged professor and work quite a lot. I'll be available sporadically depending on my work schedule. I often work at home, preparing my lectures and marking homework. The home is very quiet, and it is important my guest also be quiet (although the guest can of course speak on the phone, watch videos on their computer and so on).
Guest must be cat friendly!!
The cat jumps up on the kitchen counters and table. If you are not an animal lover, you might be uncomfortable with my cat Simon. Since Simon lives in the living room when I don't have a guest, I spend time with Simon in the kitchen when a guest stays in the living room.
Occasionally, the neighbor upstairs is a little noisy, stomping heavily. Otherwise, the apartment is quiet.
Person should be reasonably quiet (for example, no loud music that can be heard throughout the apartment)
Must be kind to animals.
No dogs, because I have cats.
I'm a professor who teaches literature and art history. I love the all the culture New York has to offer. I love theater, museums, reading, and New York. I'll be able to tell you what's on and what's worth seeing. I'm a mature, quiet, responsible, reliable host.
