This is a wonderful pre-war building between two parks with access to every borough in Manhattan right outside the front door. The room that is available has a very comfortable double bed, wardrobe and plenty of drawer space. I am often here, but you have your own bathroom with full use of the kitchen, LR, TV, etc.
I have a three bedroom apartment with two full bathrooms 6 blocks from Columbia University, 2 blocks from Riverside Park and 4 blocks from Central Park. The M4 bus is right outside my building and will take you across town down 5th Ave or uptown to the Cloisters. The #1 subway is 1/2 block away and will take you anywhere going south and north on the West Side. The Cathedral of St John the Divine is down the street.
For short stays, I am offering my extra bedroom (double bed/wardrobe/plenty of drawer space/private bathroom). For longer stays (3 months or more) I will rent the entire apt for $4200/mo (cable TV/Internet/utilities incl).
My apartment feels more like a home than a city apartment and is smoke free and needs to stay that way. The 3rd bedroom is my office, but it does have a single bed.
There is WiFi, Cable TV and air conditioning and ceiling fans in each room. And a washing machine and dryer, dishwasher, espresso machine, microwave and gas stove
My home is filled with art and items that are precious to me, so I am looking for responsible guest only.
If I am there, guest(s) will have access to a private room with a double bed/private bathroom, and full use of the kitchen, living room and dining room. Everything other than my bedroom and ensuite bathroom. For your own bedroom and bathroom and full use of the LR/DR and kitchen the rate is $150/night.
Interaction with guests
As much or as little as you like. I love interacting with people, but also know that some people just want to keep to themselves. But I am an easy, open person with a lot of info about the city and its wonderful secrets. I am a documentary editor who loves casting a wide net.
Other things to note
There is the wonderful Roerich Museum nearby as well as everything else. This is a safe, breezy, open neighborhood and my home is more reminiscent of a very comfortable home than an apartment.
There is Wi-fi, cable TV and most anything else you would need.
I am also open to renting my entire apartment for 3 to 6 months.
Just trust. And no smoking. But pets are ok.
I have a lot of wonderful art and pottery that needs to be respected. Otherwise other than smoking I am easy going. As I mentioned I love meeting people and I will be as open and helpful as you wish.
I also love animals and my wonderful dog recently died, so I am missing the presence of a dog (as long as they don't mark or shed excessively). A cat would be problematic only because of the pottery and their wonderful ability to leap and land (and possibly break what's on the shelves)
I am a documentary editor who lives in New York City. I don't smoke. I'm curious and game and happy with most everything and love this City.
I will willingly share any and everything I know about this City if you wish.
I am extremely easy going and expect only that we trust each other and that you do not smoke.
I recently lead a narrative workshop in Rwanda and Rwanda remains a favorite country. I have been to Europe often and since sadly my dog just died, I am intending to take off for from 3 to 6 months to parts unknown before I get another dog. Actually, during that time, I will be renting my apt, so if that appeals to you, please let me know.
I came to New York as an actress, produced children shows and documentaries for years and then became an editor full time.
I am also the mother of a wonderful 29 year old who (of course) lives in Brooklyn.
I love this City and have been almost everywhere, mostly on foot. Sometimes by bike. And otherwise by subway. I would be happy to share everything I know with you if you would like or send you out the door with a few clues.
