About this listing
At 180 sq ft, "the shoebox" is aptly named, but as they say in real estate "location. location. location."
Close to the highline, the whitney, restaurants and west chelsea galleries, entertainment is at our door. Subways and buses are also nearby.
You’ll love my place because the bed is comfy, the shower is hot (there is NOT a bathtub), there is an elevator (i'm on the 4th floor), vibe is cozy, and yes the ceilings are high.
My place is good for solo adventurers and business travelers.
a few more details....
there is no bathtub but the shower is strong and hot. please note you may need to let the water run a few minutes to get hot water.
there is WiFi but there is NOT a TV
upon entry of building there is an open staircase. do not fear, continue to the right and down a short hallway is a passenger elevator.
comes in handy and greatly appreciated by those guests with a suitcase!!
Interaction with guests
I am very responsive and just a text message away.
Other things to note
the hours for arrival and departure are a guide. i am always happy to be flexible and do my best to accommodate your travel needs. sometimes there's another guest on either side of you that will dictate what is possible, but i try, so always ask! cheers, karen
please be discreet. Airbnb is controversial in New York and while my building is friendly to the usage, I ask guests to simply say they are my (Karen's) guests and nothing more. it is rare and unusual that anyone would ever ask.

my home reflects my love of art, design and all things mid-century. i collect vintage ceramic, glass, objects and books. i love to cook and entertain at home. south america has been my favored travel destination of late, and it is reflected in my home.
