The apartment is on Orchard St, right in the heart of the Lower East Side. Within a 3 block radius are great restaurants, all variety of bars, boutique galleries, 6 great live music venues and the subway. You'll be in the second bedroom of a 2 bedroom apartment with full access to the kitchen, living area and bathroom.
The apartment is clean, comfortable and positioned at the back of the building, so quiet despite the energy on the streets outside.
Guests have access to the whole apartment except the other bedroom
Interaction with guests
I've got a list of local recommendations I'm happy to share if you're interested and as well as offer additional ideas once I know a more about your plans and interests.
Other things to note
Myself and my girlfriend live in the second bedroom
Have a great time, come and go as you please, just keep common areas clean and be respectful of my neighbors.
No pets, no smoking inside.
I'm an Australian who moved to New York in 2012.
I've traveled to over 35 countries in my life, including Rwanda to see the mountain Gorillas, Mexico to swim with whale sharks, and South Africa and Brazil for Football World Cups.
My Australian life was more about the beach, friends/family and Sydney's great event schedule. New York involves a little less of the beach, a few more bars, lots of meeting people (its one of the easiest places to meet people in the world) and taking in all the great events/performers that live here and pass through - the music in particular is amazing.
Work-wise I'm an organizational psychologist by training and work in management consulting.
I've had almost all of my adult life so I'd like to think I make both a considerate airbnb guest and host.
