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!

The Building and Neighborhood: This ELEVATOR building complex has 10 units, mostly 2 bedrooms, and there are 2 apartments on each floor.

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
Es war ein tolles Erlebnis, mitten in New York zu wohnen, ohne das übliche Hotel-Flair. Wer eine gemütliche kleine Unterkunft sucht ist hier genau richtig. Das Zimmer liegt absolut zentral im East Village und man kommt bequem zu Fuß nach Downtown. Jede Menge Pubs und Lokale in der Nähe. Das war wirklich toll. Bruce ist ein guter Host, er erklärt alles bei der Ankunft und wenn man Fragen hat? kein Problem, einfach eine Nachricht schicken und schon ist alles geklärt. Würde das Zimmer wieder mieten.
Amable y puntual,desde luego del todo recomendable
We stayed in Bruce's apartment for 8 days, at the beginning of October. Bruce was a great host, and the room was big and comfortable. It was very clean when we first arrived and there was a small fridge with some complimentary food and drinks - nice touch. I would recommend this place to my friends. We really enjoyed our stay, thanks Bruce!
Mein Ehemann und ich wohnten für 4 Tage bei Bruce. Das Apartment war völlig in Ordnung, es war sauber und die Einrichtung für einen Städtetrip völlig ausreichend. Bruce und seine Freundin waren sehr nett und hilfsbereit und haben im Vorfeld den Kühlschrank für uns gefüllt.
Bruce war nur selten da, also hatten wir das Apartment fast immer für uns.
Die Lage war gut, wir hatten eine gute Anbindung an öffentliche Verkehrsmittel, konnten aber auch direkt vom Apartment laufen.
Bruce und sein Apartment können wir auf jeden Fall weiterempfehlen.
Han sido uno días geniales,Bruce nos recibió super bien y nos hizo la estancia super cómoda ayudandonos en todo lo que necesitabamos , sin duda repetiria con él., además la zona esta super bien , la autentica vida neoyorquina fuera de las zonass turisticas.
Bruce was a really nice and helpful host. He gave us a lot of good information that helped us making our trip even better. His apartment was absolutely clean, the room that we stood at was comfortable and we had a lot of space; additionally, the bed was just really nice. Throughout our stay, Bruce respected our privacy and was still available in case we had a question. Thank you for a great time!
It was great at Bruce's. Nice little Room with everything needed and pretty well connected to the center of Manhattan. Also some nice Bars arround.
We had 8 nights at the property and were very pleased. Bruce was an excellent host.
Previously, he sent us the exact directions. Cleared in advance on what we wanted to have breakfast and filled the fridge with it exactly. A great reception. He answered all our questions and gave advice.
The room was clean. The bathroom we had to share with him, which was not a problem. The apartment block has an own roof terrace. Madness, a panoramic view of Manhattan. To cook the room is not very suitable, because you have to put the two electric hot plates on the dining table, but everything is there, what you need for it.
The area is safe and with many cafés and pubs it has a student and invigorated.
We have felt very comfortable and can recommend it. Thank you Bruce!
Wir waren 8 Nächte in der Unterkunft und waren sehr zufrieden. Bruce war ein hervorragender Gastgeber.
Zuvor sendete er uns die genaue Wegbeschreibung. Klärte im Vorfeld ab, was wir frühstücken wollten und befüllte den Kühlschrank genau damit. Ein klasse Empfang. Er beantwortete alle unsere Fragen und gab Tipps.
Das Zimmer war sauber. Das Bad mussten wir uns mit ihm teilen, was aber kein Problem war. Der Wohnblock besitzt eine eigne Dachterrasse. Wahnsinn, ein Rundumblick über Manhatten. Zum Kochen ist das Zimmer nicht sehr geeignet, da man die zwei Elektroherdplatten auf den Esstisch stellen muss, dennoch ist alles da, was man dafür benötigt.
Die Gegend ist sicher und mit vielen Cafés und Kneipen wirkt sie sehr studentisch und belebt.
Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und können es weiter empfehlen. Danke Bruce!
We really enjoyed staying here. Bruce is a friendly guy who obviously takes great care of both the apartment and the contact / communication with us. Clear and practical info beforehand and durng our stay, nice and clean apartment and a breakfast that we could specify some things we like. I definitely recommend this place to others and would love to stay with him again.
Good base in the north and south of Manhattan. All Public Must be good, for example, reached by city bikes. Immediately within three Citybike stations. Many good restaurants and pubs in the East Village around the corner. Top roof terrace with great views.
Guter Ausgangspunkt in den Norden und Süden von Manhattan. Alle Sightseeing Must sind gut, z.b. mit den Citybikes erreichbar. Unmittelbar im Umkreis sind drei Citybike Stationen. Viele gute Restaurants und Kneipen im East Village um die Ecke. Top Dachterrasse mit Super Aussicht.
