Enjoy the ease/comfort of staying in an apartment in upper Manhattan - Inwood. Subway (express train) next to building, comfortable room, quiet, harmonious apartment. Use of kitchen, wifi, laundry in building. Restaurants, parks, 24hr grocery, banks all close. Good for single or couple. Non smoking environment. Walkup building. Longterm ok.
Charming pre-war building with a gated large garden courtyard greets you as you arrive. A lovely large room (200 square feet) for your stay in a shared apartment, the private room has a comfortable queen size. There is a standing clothes rack with hangers in the room, also a desk and chair, a couch and a small chest of drawers.
Check in and check out times, when pre-arranged can be flexible.
The kitchen has a coffee press, toaster oven, electric tea kettle, and blender. Guests may help themselves to a selection of teas. A Britta pitcher is provided for water. Stove top use is ok, but no oven use. Storing food in the refrigerator is fine.
There is a laundry in the building available for use, and a laundry card for the machines is provided.
1 bathroom in the apartment is shared.
My work schedule varies, so I'm in and out of the apartment, but always reachable by cell phone. I'm always happy to make recommendations on what to see in the city, and help you navigate the subway.
No elevator in the building. 4th floor walkup.

Long time New York City resident, I enjoy the multifaceted nature of The Big Apple. When at home I tend to keep to myself and like to give my guests their privacy. But I also enjoy making recommendations for theater, museums, parks, and bike riding destinations. I've lived in California and before that Puerto Rico. I speak Spanish.
