The space

Charismatic and artsy one bedroom apartment in pulsating area of the East Village. Located right on the corner of 2nd Street and Avenue A, this place will provide you with an ideal and unique New York City experience. Forget about staying at an overpriced hotel in Midtown amongst the rest of the tourists; experience the action in one of the most exciting neighborhoods in the city while staying in a real New York apartment with its own sense of individuality and charm.

Located one floor walk-up above street level, this one bedroom/one bath has a direct view out onto Avenue A and 2nd Street. Bedroom has comfy double bed that sleeps two easily. Clean linens will be provided. Curtains over blinds make sleeping during the day not a problem. Closet space is limited but we will provide you with your own dresser drawers. Living room has modest couch that can sleep a third if needed. Desk/workstation if needed in living room, including a flatscreen TV with cable, bluray player, xbox, and sound system hook-up for your iPod/iphone/laptop. Free Wifi included. Lots of natural light in living room with great view out onto the street. With the windows open at night it's like your hanging out on the street with the partygoers!

Kitchen is fully functional with small table for two by the window. Again, lots of natural light. Gas stove, big refrigerator, juicer, vegetable steamer, table top grill, and all the cooking utensils needed for when you don't want to spend the money eating out. Bathroom is clean with great water pressure/hot water and stand-up shower.

When it comes to nearby amenities, it doesn't get much more accessible than this:

- F train one block away
- easy access to taxi cabs at any time of day/night
- Multiple supermarkets and farmers markets within a two block radius
- Laundromat right across the street
- Tompkins Square Park only several blocks away
- A multitude of lively bars and amazing restaurants right outside the front door. We've been in this neighborhood for several years and still haven't come close to trying out every (URL HIDDEN) kind of what the Village is known for!
- walking distance to other great nearby neighborhoods: Lower East Side, Soho, Union Square, Chinatown, West Village, among others

We can provide you with plenty of recommendations for restaurants, sights, nightlife, or activities in the city. We also have family members and lots of friends in New York so if we are out of town and there is a problem it can easily be taken care of. We are willing to help you out with anything you might be interested in, because at the end of the day we want to provide you with the most authentic New York experience possible!

This apartment is fabulous, and Brian is a great host. Everything is just as pictured, and the Alphabet City/East Village location is walking distance to so many great restaurants, nightlife, and shopping destinations. This is the true New York City experience.

Brian's place was great, just as described. It was small, but as clean and comfortable and complete as described. It truly was a great location, and up only one flight of stairs. There was plenty to do just outside building and it was very close to a subway stop. It was a lit…

Great location near subway stations, Katz, Russ and Daughters, Union Market, Italian restaurants, and pizza slices downstairs in an emergency. Fairly quiet location. Eclectic decor. One flight of stairs up to apartment was not bad. Very comfortable space. Would book here again.

We did enjoy our weeks stay here and were very appreciative of Brian’s tips and help with our later than usual arrival and departure times.The location is great for the subway system and there was a great specialty grocery store for the days we ate in.
