Big private bedroom on Fabulous 14th Street, Manhattan: East Village near Union Square / Gramercy. NYU, Peridance, New School, Parsons, Whole Foods, Trader Joe's nearby. Walkup apartment on the 5th floor of prewar NYC townhouse. (100+ year old building) High ceilings, spacious, comfortable, artsy, relaxed, clean, homey. A/C WiFi
Short distance to just about everything fabulous and wonderful NYC has to offer. Great spot to relax, and easy to get everywhere.

The space

Large comfortably furnished private bedroom in huge 3 bedroom apartment with two bathrooms. You'll share common space with a chill arts professional / grad student & a sweet cat. It really is a big space as we have the whole top floor of a townhouse.
The bedroom is furnished with a full size bed, dresser, shelves, mirror and closet. A desk can be provided.
This is a furnished room available in a really huge cool artist's apartment. It is spacious, homey and comfortable. In walkup townhouse. It's on the 5th Floor so be ready for some "NYC crossfit": 4 flights of stairs to climb with no elevator. (Old building circa 1904)
Very Bright with skylights, (we have the whole top floor), fully equipped spacious kitchen, spacious comfy living room, two bathrooms, hardwood floors, high ceilings. This is a serene, creative safe haven for busy people. Nonsmoking, gay friendly household. If you're a party animal keep looking elsewhere! Great spot to relax and easy to get everywhere.

Guest access

Private bedroom with separate entrance from hallway. Respectfully shared kitchen, bathroom and living room.

Interaction with guests

I'm friendly, but I am pretty busy! So I'll be available for a basic hello & to give directions but not any serious hand-holding. Yay.

- A Few Ground Rules
No Smoking. No parties. This is a really relaxed and friendly environment, serene and chill. Here's how it stays that way!
- Apartment safety:
- Please take care to lock the door behind you as you leave and when you enter.
- The intercom is near the door closer to 14th St. You have to TALK REALLY LOUD to be heard on the street. It's super noisy down there.
- Don't let in strangers.
- There is a fire extinguisher next to the sink in the kitchen and in the hall near the back (north) entrance to the apt. There is a small ladder there as well.
Please clean up after yourself in common spaces:
- Wash your dishes promptly
- Leave the sink clean & clear (knock out the screen trap into the trash if it's got food bits) & rinse sink please.
- If you spill something, please wipe it up.
- Also sweep up your crumbs, etc.
- Bathroom:
- ALWAYS Keep the drains clear of Hair
- AND Rinse or wipe the sink & tub after use.
- Please avail yourselves of the cleaning supplies under the sink if things get dodgy.
Trash:
- The trash can ought to be double-lined, & the lid needs to be closed.
- When the trash gets full, please take it out to the galvanized can in the stairwell. Close the lid tightly.
- We recycle paper & cardboard / bottles, cans, plastic & metal, all the bins are in the kitchen; look for the labels.
- Flatten cardboard boxes / rinse cans and glass before recycling.

Bedrooms:
- Please, don’t ever leave food or trash in your bedrooms.
- We have two brooms in the hallway off the kitchen, you may avail yourself of those periodically.
Laundry
- I'll show you how to set up the washing machine, just remember the sink needs to be completely clear or we can get a flood.
- Please don't overload the washer or the dryer.
- Please clean the lint filter in the dryer after each load, it saves energy and your clothes will dry faster!
Guests
- We prefer airbnb guests NOT have additional guests, it's best to socialize outside the apartment. But if there's an occasion that a friend will stop by, please give plenty of advance notice and be respectful of this shared space.
- Guests must stick with you instead of hanging around the apartment without you. (You know this though, right?)

I greatly enjoyed my stay. Kathleen has been very kind and welcoming in all respects. Her place is exactly as described. The room is large and offers much storage space. The room is oriented south (distant from the other rooms), close to the second entry door of the apartment, hence offers good privacy. The apartment is well equipped, to make the stay easy going. Notice, however - but this has nothing to do with the apartment/room itself ! - that the area outside is lively. There is a fire-station further down the road, a hospital and police nearby, so sirens can go off any time. 14th Street is lively in general, but the advantage is that you find everything down the street (foot, haircut, bars, etc.). 14th Street in front of the house is particularly nice because it has many trees along the road, which makes it a nice neighbourhood. Also, the location is great to explore the nearby East Village area, or running down east river if you are interested in sports. Note also that the building is a traditional NY townhouse, with much of it in its original style. So, for example, don't be afraid of steep stairs and a bit of a rough-going stairwell. But again, this has nothing to do with the apartment itself; it is about authentic NY environment. Kathleen's apartment is truly authentic too, artist-style with many photographs, books and music instruments. Finally, her cat Bella is very charming, too. If you are looking for a true NY authentic experience, ready to never resting life in 14th Street, Kathleen's place will be a good choice for you. Also, 14th Street is a good starting point to explore any area in Manhattan (Union Square, Greenwich, etc.).

I had a fantastic stay at Kat's place! It's clean, homely, comfortable, and a great base in the east village right off the L train. Kat is a very talented and interesting person and I really enjoyed her company whenever we crossed paths. I would definitely recommend! Thanks Kat!

The location of Kat's place was perfect for what I was looking for. The bedroom was very comfortable and Kat was very welcoming and helpful. I also enjoyed the company of the two cute cats, Lois and Bella. I did not use the wi-fi in the apartment but everything else was as listed. And there is literally an uptown subway entrance steps from the door. I'd really recommend Kat's apartment as an East Village base for your New York trip.

This home is as pictured! Very spacious. I came into town for 2 1/2 weeks, the kitchen is well stocked and again, a lot of room. Good wifi, nice bathroom, and tv connected to Netflix was perfect for lazy days. Kat is a blast, very nice and accommodating. There to help in any way. Would definitely come back.
