This private room is 100% yours. Apartment common areas are shared, but you will have full, unlimited access to the rest of this large apartment. I will make a point to welcome you, but you are free to come and go as you please. Unless you would like to socialize, you will see very little of me during your stay.

About the neighbourhood
If you’re looking for extra elbow room in Manhattan, head 15 minutes north of midtown to hip and less-dense Washington Heights. Although it requires a 15 minutes subway ride to reach this great uptown escape, the neighborhood’s community feel and plainspoken demeanor make it a great place for visitors looking for value. Want more from Washington Heights? It’s also home to a thriving Dominican populace, and this neighborhood’s local fare is truly something to savor.
Getting around
The 175th Street Express A train is a one minute walk from my apartment. The famous A train, from Duke Ellington's song 'Take the A train', runs express through Manhattan and will take you to all of the major sights to see in NYC.
