THE DESCRIPTION: This listing is for a luxury duplex with loft apartment in the East Village ideal for a couple, single or small family with 1-2 children. This can work for 2 couples with one couple in the loft.
All who stay 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 new, very clean and is in a great location, being only 2 minute walk to subway or less than a minute to a bus stop.
The apartment has a large bedroom, full bathroom, fully stocked kitchen and living room with 2 new modern retro sofas that also fold out flat into comfy double/full beds, HD TV with 1900+ channels, WiFi and includes breakfast!
This apartment is on the 6th + top floors of a modern, elevator building which faces South (sunny and bright, with excellent breezy ventilation or A/C) and is across the street from a school, so it's quiet at night and in the mornings on weekends!
Prices (all are in USD), not including WIMDU fees: (No Check-in/out on Saturday or Sunday.
Prices may vary due to other circumstances as well. During summer months (May through September), the minimum stay is 3 nights (on weekends).
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 a full bathroom with a tub.
There is a laundry room in the basement if you feel like doing laundry, or a dry cleaner half a block away.
The Building and Neighborhood: This ELEVATOR building complex has 10 units, mostly 2 bedrooms, and there are 2 apartments on each floor.
2 minute walk to subway (L Train)
1 minute walk to Bus (M15)
10 minute walk to Union Square (every single subway is accessible from)
20-30 minute walk to midtown (Empire State Building, Times Square, Madison Square Garden)
This neighborhood is very lively after the sun goes down. The East Village has been heavily built up over the last 5 years and located in one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Manhattan. The East Village offers a variety of restaurants, cafes, bars and a beautiful park. 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 room service and have anything delivered to the room (usually until 11 pm or midnight) as there are plenty of menus from all the nearby food establishments. These little privately owned restaurants are MUCH better than midtown/tourist-trap food chain places as well. There are at least three 24/hr places to get food within 2 blocks and about 50 restaurant/bars/cafes and shopping within a 3 block radius and probably 500 within a 10 block radius. This building is one of only a few in the neighborhood that has an elevator. About 95% of the buildings in the area are walk-ups. Enjoy a beautiful park (Tompkins Square) 2 blocks away the East River waterfront park about 5 streets/blocks to the east.
I'm always happy to recommend the cool, not-in-the-guide-books places for nightlife or dinner or anything else you may seek while in NYC!

Reviews for this host's other properties
Bruce was a very accommodating host and welcomed us warmly to New York! Lots of info was provided via e-mail before arriving so that was great.
The room itself was clean and spacious, and East Village is a fantastic location to spend some time and feel like a local in NYC.
If you were hoping to do lots of cooking (we weren't, we were more than happy to eat around New York :D) then the kitchen doesn't offer the best facilities and is quite small, it sits in the small hallway room between the bathroom, your room and Bruce's room.
If you're happy to eat out and want to be in a great local area of New York out of the super tourist area then I definitely recommend Bruce's place!
My boyfriend and I stayed one night at this place. Bruce is a very nice and welcoming person. The room looks exactly like on the picture. However, we didn't spent much time in the room besides sleeping. The place is a little bit far from the subway but the area is actually nice and offers a lot of restaurants and bars.
Thank you to Bruce for this stay. apartment corresponds exactly to the description it is very well located (close trade and transport). Bruce is really someone open and pleasant.
We had a very good stay.
We recommend no problem staying with Bruce.
The place to be! Great area, very close to metro. Great bars and restaurants in this area! Apartment down the street so very quiet! Very comfortable 2. Full breakfast, according to our tastes. Perfect compared to our expectations and needs. Recommended + + + + +!
The place to be!!
Super quartier, métro très proche. Super bars et restos dans ce quartier! Appartement en retrait de la rue donc très calme! Très confortable à 2. Petit déjeuner très complet, conforme à nos goûts. Parfait par rapport à nos attentes et nos besoins. Recommandé +++++!
We had a great time, everything was as expected. Nice apartment, very clean, great neighborhood. Wonderful view from the rooftop terrace which is easily accessible by elevator. Bruce is a great host, very helpful, gave us a lot of useful hints for our stay. Thank you very much!
We highly recommend Bruce! The apartment is fantastic & clean and Bruce is a very funny, friendly and helpful person. We got a lot of useful tips from him, that made our stay in New York City much better!
The view from the roof top over Manhattan is incredible... You have to see that!
Our host was very friendly, very discreet. The location is ideal and nice neighborhood. Against by the website photos do not correspond to the rented room photos are his apartment which we do not have access. However, the room is very nice and well equipped, the kitchen is reduced to a microwave and a small oven.
Notre hôte est très sympathique, très discret.
L'emplacement est idéal et le quartier agréable.
Par contre les photos du site ne correspondent pas à la chambre louée, les photos correspondent à son appartement auquel nous n'avons pas accès.
Toutefois la chambre est très jolie et bien équipée, la cuisine se résume à un micro onde et un petit four.
We had a fabulous stay! Great location, great rooftop view, great place, good space in the apartment and with outdoor patio and also a wonderful host.
Couldn’t have asked for more. And even breakfast included, which made a great start on the day! Would definitely recommend!
Our stay in NYC was great. Before arriving at Bruce's place, he shared useful information with us: how to get there by subway, taxi, whatever. The room was big enough for two and had all it needed: hairdryer, towels, clean sheets, tv, you name it... His appartment is located in a great area. Subway is a 15-minute walk and then you can go wherever you want within less than 30 minutes. The non-touristic (but safe) area is very nice: restaurants, bars, park in front of the appartment.... No need to hesitate to make a booking at Bruce's!
bruce is a very nice and helpful host. we felt home !!!
