SUNNY DREAM - 2 BR East Village!!
Floor No.3(with elevator)
Please do NOT try to book it without sending me a note first!
This is the new 2 BR spacious, modern apartment, located a few blocks from my King Weston, both in the East Village. This posting is for use of an entire private apartment with 2 private bedrooms (sleeps 6 max, ideal for 4), 1 full bathroom with tub, fully stocked kitchen, living room, closets in an elevator building.
NEW PICTURES ARE HERE! The apartment is complete and furnished and freshly painted!
This entire private apartment will sleep 6 comfortably (based on 2 people per bed). There are 2 bedrooms with queen beds and the couch is a pull-out sofa bed.
Surely, you will experience living in a fantastic apartment in NYC while saving a few bucks from pricey NYC hotels that are located in the heart of the tourist frenzy areas in midtown. It's very clean and has things no hotel can offer.
This is available for rentals of 3 nights or more. However, if you are seeking a stay only 1 or 2 nights, it is possible to do so, if it precedes or adds to an existing reservation.
The Building and Neighborhood: It's located on a fairly quiet street across from a school (quiet at night) and a road that has less than average travel. It's about a 2 minute walk to the nearest subway (L Train) and 1 minute to a bus.
The unit has a fully stocked kitchen: full size fridge/freezer, dishwasher, gas stove/oven, microwave, top of the line stainless cookware, utensils, dishware, glassware and decent closet space for luggage and clothing.
The highly desired neighborhood is quite lively after the sun goes down. The East Village has been heavily built up over the last 5-10 years and located on the East side of Manhattan from 14th St down to Houston (same as street zero) which borders the LES (Lower East Side). Tompkins Square Park is 2 blocks away.
The East Village offers over 400 restaurants, cafes, bars, shopping and a beautiful park which has a few playgrounds for kids, basketball courts, dog run and plenty of benches and grassy areas to relax. You can walk to Indian, Russian, Italian, Mexican, Japanese, Chinese, Thai, Vegetarian and American restaurants within a 5 block radius. If you're too tired and beat up from touring NYC and don't feel like going anywhere, you can simply order in and have anything delivered to the room (usually until 11 pm or midnight). And these little privately owned restaurants are MUCH better than midtown/tourist-trap food chain places. There are at least three 24/hr places to eat within 2 blocks. About 90% of the buildings in the area are walk-ups and this has an elevator. There are about 50 restaurant/bars/cafe's within a 3 block radius and probably 500 within a 10 block radius.

Reviews for this host's other properties
First I want to thank to Bruce and Cyndi by their attentions. They tried to provide us everything we needed.
We were all the time visiting the town, but the few time that we shared, they were very nice.
About the room, it was all what we need. It is clean and more than enough for 2 persons. May be that i missed a kitchen (as Spanish I like cook frequently), but there are a lot of place to eat in the zone, so it isn't really a problem, and Bruce has got an double hot plate where you can prepare something.
The building is great (2 lifts/elevators, gym, laundry) and the doormen, in special Bob, are friendly.
The zone is good and the weekend have a lot of revelry. There are some bus lines crossing it and they leave you in subway stations, so you can access to any place of the city easily.
In resume, it was a nice experience that we would like repeat.
To all who thinks in visit NY, Bruce's appartment is a nice option.
We hadden een uitstekend verblijf in Bruce's appartement.
De kamer is zeer ruim, het bed is zeer comfortabel en het ontbijt is inbegrepen.
Alles is binnen loop afstand en de buurt (East Village) is erg prettig. Er zijn veel bars en restaurants in de buurt, zodat je niet te vervelen.
Nabij is Tompkins Square Park, hier staan CitiBikes welke uitermate geschikt zijn om de stad op een vlotte manier te verkennen.
Het appartement beschikt over een mooi dakterras met uitzicht over Manhattan waarbij de Freedom Tower, het Empire State en de Chrysler Building mooi te zien zijn.
Bruce is een uitstekende gastheer. Hij heeft heel veel van en tips over wat te doen en waar te eten. Hij is erg behulpzaam en vriendelijk. Zijn appartement is een echte aanrader!
Wir haben den Aufenthalt bei Bruce sehr genossen. Eine super Unterkunft, um NYC zu erkunden. Tolle Lage - East Village ist echt cool. Viele Kneipen, Restaurants und Deli`s in der Nähe. Hier gibt es schon viel zu sehen und man hat das Gefühl nicht im Touri-Bereich zu sein, sondern mitten drin. Bruce hat gleich für Frühstückssachen gesorgt. Vorher hatte er per mail angefragt, was wir gerne mögen. Man kann bei ihm kochen und seine Terrasse mit direktem Zugang mitbenutzen. Freies WLAN ist selbstverständlich, ein Kühlschrank und TV auch vorhanden. Bruce gibt einem super Tips und man kann auch Essen per Lierferservice ins Haus bestellen. Die Auswahl hierbei ist fast unerschöpflich. In dem Haus wohnen viele junge Leute. Die Dachterrasse auf dem Hochhaus ist der absolute Wahnsinn. Ein paar Getränke mitnehmen und schon ist man bei schönem Wetter mit den anderen Bewohnern in eine kleine Party verwickelt. Das ist NYC!! Vielen Dank an Bruce für die tolle Zeit!
L'appartamento di Bruce è stato per noi un punto strategico per visitare NY. Situato in uno dei quartieri più caratteristic, è ben servito dalla metro raggiungibile in pochi minuti.
La casa è accogliente, pulita e provvista di tutti i confort.
Bruce è molto disponibile ma noi non abbiamo avuto nessun problema.
Speriamo di tornare presto ospiti di Bruce. voto 5/5
Our stay at Bruce's was definitely great! He kept in touch and sent us useful information before our arrival. The room was cosy, everything we needed was there. Whenever we had a question, Bruce was happy to help us. The neighbourhood is really wonderful, we think it's the best place to stay at in New York.
We had an excellent stay at Bruce's place. The room is very spacious and has plenty of room, the bed is very comfy and breakfast is included. It a 10 minute walk away from the subway; the neighbourhood seems to be safe around the clock, so no worries there. There are a lot of bars and restaurants nearby, so you won't be bored. The appartement features a nice rooftop view over Manhattan - buildings like the Empire state, the Crysler and the new Freedom tower are nicely visible.
Best of all, we really liked Bruce himself. He has loads to tell and tips about what to do (and what not) in NYC. He's really relaxed and down to earth. As we didn't know wether we'd get out of the city or not (due to an upcoming storm, which grounded a few hundred planes) Bruce offered us to stay for another night (without charge); as far I am concerned, he was the perfect host.
Highly advised :)
Bruce and Cindy are very friendly! Hyper welcoming their apartment is clean, great location close to everything because (walking and metro). They advised us and made us feel comfortable and at home (because it is true that it is a bit annoying from "squatter" among others ...) but all is well past. There was no problem to link even with the language barrier we were able to have conversations, not really it was great! They made us live a great experience, and we were able to share with them our first Thanksgiving meal with the famous turkey was delicious! You can trust their really, do not hesitate to go home. It is true however, that the street is a bit noisy but hey, New York is the city that never sleeps, so it is something that is difficult to counter.
Bruce and Cindy are so kind, so friendly and so welcoming! Their apartment is clean, well located, near from everything (walking or taking the subway). You can really trust 'em, They adviced us and make us feel like home. We Could Have Some odd talk the language barrier. It was just a wonderfull trip, we loved it! The only drawback is the street noise at night goal, well, New York is the city that never sleeps so we can not do nothing for That No, really, we advice you to choose Bruce and Cindy, They are really great people!
Have a nice trip!

Bruce et Cindy sont très sympas ! Hyper accueillant, leur appartement est propre, super bien placé car proche de tout (à pied et en métro). Ils nous ont conseillé et nous ont fait nous sentir à l'aise, comme chez nous (car il est vrai que c'est un peu gênant au départ de "squatter" chez les autres...) mais tout c'est très bien passé. Il n'y a eu aucun problème pour créer des liens même avec la barrière de la langue on a pu avoir des conversations, non vraiment c'était super ! Ils nous ont fait vivre une super expérience, et nous avons pu partager avec eux notre premier repas de Thanksgiving avec la fameuse dinde qui était délicieuse ! Vous pouvez leurs faire confiance vraiment, n'hésitez pas à allez chez eux. Il est vrai cependant, que la rue est un peu bruyante mais bon, New York est la ville qui ne dort jamais, c'est donc quelque chose qu'il est difficile de contrer.

Warm, Bruce is very friendly. Ideal room to sleep only (noisy, provide ventilation ball earplugs because the other apartments) For breakfast, there is a little light (lack of orange juice or bread) The apartment is very well located ( near shops and transport) and we spent one week enjoyable. We recommend this apartment anyway.
Accueil chaleureux, Bruce est très sympathique.
Chambre idéal pour dormir seulement (bruyant, prévoir boule quies pour cause ventilation des autres appartements)
En ce qui concerne le petit déjeuner, il est un peu léger (manque de jus d'orange ou de pain)
L'appartement est très bien situé (proche commerces et transports) et nous avons passé 1 semaine agréable.
Nous recommandons cet appartement malgré tout.
Very kind and helpful people. Perfect place if you enjoy the laid back atmosphere of East Village. I’d like to come back! Thank you Bruce.
Bruce is a very nice and helpful host. We also enjoyed the large, clean rooms very much. Only limitation is the lack of food. There is a small coffee maker, fridge and micro. For us it was fine. But what is really really great, this is the location in the bustling, colorful East Village! We had fun exploring the countless witty, very individual shops, pubs and restaurants. If you like walking a conquered city, here is the perfect starting point! Weather permitting, the roof terrace is a great place to look over all of Manhattan, or to relax with a book. We would come back!
Bruce ist ein sehr netter und hilfsbereiter Gastgeber. Uns hat auch das große, saubere Zimmer sehr gefallen. Einzige Einschränkung ist die fehlende Küche. Es gibt eine kleine Kaffeemaschine, Kühlschrank und Micro. Für uns war es in Ordnung. Was aber wirklich richtig genial ist, das ist die Lage im quirligen, bunten East Village! Wir hatten viel Spaß beim Erkunden der unzähligen witzigen, ganz individuellen Läden, Kneipen und Lokale. Wer gerne zu Fuß eine Stadt erobert, hat hier den perfekten Startpunkt! Bei schönem Wetter ist die Dachterrasse ein großartiger Platz, um über ganz Manhatten zu schauen, oder mit einem Buch zu entspannen. Wir würden wieder kommen!
